I came across the same thing. What I found is, if it seems to good to be true then it is. There are a lot of scams on Craigslist. I had to navigate through them and with a little checking into, I was able to spot the scams and find the real thing. ... more

Rrenn answered:
Have they published notices of and done any open houses?
Are they using ant social media besides just an MLS listing?
Have they explained their comparative market analysis in detail to you and does it make sense?
Is your house priced right to sell?
Are the pictures on the internet fully displaying any unique characteristics and benefits of your home?
Have they given a list of community amenities, services, and benefits, or describe the community lifestyle?
Have they considered doing a broker open house and invited other agents there for lunch, a meeting, etc.?
Have you made a personal video to post on your own facebook page stating your home is for sell?
Does you agent have something like a market report that would tell you how your home compared to other similar homes have performed by showing numbers and days on the market, etc.
Do you know what the current inventory picture of your geographic market is by price point?

Hope this is helpful.

Yes. Normally the seller pays the full amount of commission fees to their realtor. Then your realtor will split the fee with the buyers agent. Each agent will split their fee with the broker. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Are you asking the seller to pay closing costs? If yes, then the seller needs to increase the price to include your closing costs. Example: If the seller is asking $500K for the home and your offer is $490K + $8,000. in seller assistance, this means you are actually paying $482,000. ($18,000. below the asking price). The seller will be very upset so to balance out the math, the seller will increase the price to $508,000. so the seller's bottom line is still $500K - not $482K.

If the $8,000. price increase is for something else, then I have no idea why the seller would increase the price.

I lived in Fresno 30 years out of my 42 years alive. There has always been more crime in the area then others. The criminals would literally come across town to break into garages and cars in the wealthier parts of town. At one time I read a statistic that you had a 1 in 30 chance of having your car stolen in Fresno. I had mine stolen 3 times in a few years. There was nothing special about the car other than I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Generally the northern parts of Fresno are wealthier with less crime. The south can be pretty rough and really rough if you pick the right spot. Fresno has a unique variety of cultures and some of these cultures are stuck in poverty. It creates a situation where extremely poor people are living in areas where they would not normally be able to afford. Example: the area near Fresno state can be very bad. The apartments near there are run down and house people that just don't have much money. Drive around the neighborhood at night and pay attention to weirdos walking around. Generally if there are a bunch of people walking around at night you probably want to avoid that area. ... more
