Of course, there are many.
As you know, ALL professional fees are netotiable.
Just make certain to make your intention known when you have that intitail consultation with your agent. You willl be surprised how well that works.
However, stay away from situations where others hyjack the rebate to offset overcharges by others involved in the home buying process.

Hi Lisa, your quick response is appreciated however, as far as fee's regarding MLS, RE Commission along with E&O Insurance etc what is the average I should expect to spend when I first join a firm? Although the split on Commission begins at 50% it also increases based on production. The 8% includes all marketing tools, website etc. I wanted to clarify a bit further so as to receive a more accurate response. So once more, although the first commission split starts of a bit lower and aside from the Fee's of which i believe an agent is expected to spend annually (if that's the case) there is no monthly fee or desk fee charged by this organization.... more
If you send me your email I'd be happy to send you some past rental stats on 2-3 bedroom single family homes in Tenafly. With this info you will be able to see how long the listings were on market and the agreed lease price. Rental numbers are determined by supply and demand. So I will not only send past activity but your current competition. How much the comps are on market for and actually how many the tenant has to select from. How does your unit compare to others in condition and location. This will give you a good indication of the lease number.

If the listing does not mention it you can ask your agent or the listing agent for additional information on the tank, like if they know of any tank underground, if the home owner has previously encountered this problem when they purchased the home. Now if the house has evidence of a tank or the inspector sees anything that suggest the house had an underground thank at some point he usually will advise it in his report and the there is a company that specifically searches for the tank on the property with a detector. Also municipalities may have a record of a tank removal in the past. So there is some work to do and it is very important these days to make sure you do not get stuck with one on the property ! Good luck!... more
The selling agent definitely makes a difference!
Your agent should be a "go getter"
Your agent should have great advertising resources
He/she should be advertising open houses to the public AND to other brokers
They should be communicating web site results/ showing results/ open house feedback
Many agents will throw your listing in the "pile" they already have it listed and expect it to sell itself. They might get lucky....... or they might not. You are the one that suffers, because your home is not receiving the attention it deserves to get it sold!
Ask your friends, acquaintances, co-workers, ect of local agents with a great reputation. Word of mouth advertising tells the story! Good luck... more
Without seeing the house it is impossible to tell you.
Staging always helps.
Then marketing to the right buyers.
But sometimes it just comes down to price. if similar homes are selling for less why would they buy yours?
see my FSBO Blog for more info.

Right before schools start:
Even if they can't be settled before the first day of school, they can get their children in that school.
Other than that, the worst time is when it's raining or snowing, there's crap all over the ground, and it's overcast and dreary.
So, NOW!... more
The train you're hearing is the freight train that runs through Bergenfield directly west of where you are located. It's a long freight train that runs several times daily. What I can tell you is that after a while you become acclimated to it and it no longer bothers you. At least that's how it is for most people.
Frankly, I've heard the train living much further east of your location in Tenafly. However, I've never heard it mentioned by anyone in Tenafly as having any impact on the value of their home and I've never factored it into any evaluation I've done on homes in Tenafly, NJ.
Most people find that it just takes a while to get acclimated to sounds in a new home. When my parents moved us into our new house when I was a young child, we quickly learned that our block was where the fire siren was located. Every day at 7 pm it would blast for about one minute. Believe it or not, after a while, we no longer noticed it. Hopefully you will soon get to the point where the train sounds no longer bother you.
As far as moving is concerned, this is something you should very carefully decide upon. In addition to the sales price of the house, you have had closing costs and moving this quickly will not allow you to sell the house at a price that will absorb all of your costs which means you will take a loss. While I understand that peace of mind is worth a tremendous amount, before you leap into a move, try to find some other solution. If you need some advice on how to sound proof your bedroom, why not go over to the local hardware store in town, Benjamin Brothers? They are terrific people and may have some inexpensive answers for you. If you need to find a handyman or contractor for other opinions as to how to solve the problem, you can contact me through my website.
There's nothing you can do to get rid of the train noise - the trick is to find a workable and affordable solution before you do something that will hurt you.... more
The most important thing is to do document the repair request to your landlord. If you can send an email or certified letter that would be ideal. Secondly, you must read in detail what your current lease states and if you are still unable to decipher the answer reach out to a NJ Real Estate attorney and/or NJ Realtor. Feel free to contact me if you would like for me to look at your lease for you. Best of luck, Joshua Baris RealtorofNJ.... more
