You're an agent with Keller Williams (according to your profile), I know they have great training programs over there for new agents, which you sound like you are since you're asking all these questions.

Do you know that every time a question is asked I get 1-2 emails in my inbox? Take a class in your office, ask your broker. Google is your friend. Check out Realty Trac too.

Trulia is 99% a site for Consumers to ask questions to real estate professionals. It's highly annoying to be getting all these emails in 1 day, for these types of questions.

You'll understand better why this is annoying after you've given over 1500 well thought out answers to consumer questions over a period of years. This is also why for every question you've been asking you're receiving either ZERO or One or Two responses. Trust me, everyone sees your questions, but I'm the only one who's going to tell you why no one is answering them.

btw, it's spelled LOS Angeles, not LAS.

I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine.

Negotiable with whom, the vendors or the other party? 100% of the items are negotiable with the other party, but you can also negotiate fees with inspectors and service providers.

You should always look at the settlement statement and have an open communication with the people you are working with ,that clears up a lot of doubts.thanks HENA MARTIN 760-251-2868

Everything and anything. The seller for the most part pays for the home owner's warranty and the buyer pays for title insurance.

any cost are negotiable and this is a common practice sometimes, however in today's market of multi offers, the seller will not accept an offer asking for closing cost concessions.

Emily,

If you're too busy and important to answer questions, don't subscribe to answer them. The agent 2 agent category is for agents, not consumers. And sometimes new agents don't want to ask questions of their broker so as not to appear stupid. I'm guessing there was a time when you needed help. Remember that and be a little more generous.

I own my company and I deal with my own clients in addition to all the rest that goes with running a company so I'm guessing I'm a lot busier than you. Get off your high horse and remember when you were starting out.
