Jim Olive answered:
Laura is right on just about everything, but I disagree with her comment on market timing. The market is good right now and getting better nationwide. I believe that IS the time to get in if you're going to. Getting in now will afford you the opportunity to BECOME one of those "good agents with systems in place" to succeed when the market goes back down! But you'll need to be smart and enter with eyes wide open. 80 to 90% of new agents fail. Why? Because they don't enter with a "building a business" mentality. Building a business takes time and money. While the overhead required to get a real estate business off the ground may be less oppressive than that required to get a restaurant off the STILL have to enter the game with a plan for spending money up front and not recognizing much profit (if any) in the early years. And the majority of that investment (IMHO) will go to marketing and advertising. You can be the best Real Estate Agent in town, but it won't mean a thing if people don't know it....TELL THEM! Advertise. Get your name out there.
As for who to go with...remember....they are all in business and you represent the opportunity for more income to them...nothing more! Choose the one that will do the most to benefit you ... good training, good mentorship and a favorable commission split .Best of luck with your decision.

Paul Striefsky answered:

Every municipality has their own regulations as to lot size, frontage, and set-backs; front, sides and rear from the main structure. You may sell some of your land to your neighbor but if that in turn makes your lot smaller than the ordinance says it should be, you would have to seek a variance from Planning Board along with the creation of two (2) new lot sizes. This also involves drafting new surveys with new legal descriptions, and if approved, filing the new deeds and subdivision with the county. If you have a mortgage on your lot, you also must get written approval from your lender.

If all of the above can be accomplished, you then would find out what recent land sales were based on a $/sq.ft. and then use this figure as an asking price for the land you want to sell to your neighbor. Although I have 19 years of Zoning Board experience and 6+ years as Planning Board Chairman, my first suggestion is that you speak with a land-use attorney and a surveyor/planner to have them explain the cost and time involved in completing this type of sale.

This is a short sale. Use only experienced short sale representation.
Don't get caught in the middle of bad short sale. Know what you are up against. An experienced short sale buyer agent will know aht to look for. No guarantees but your chances are much better

Walter - the toppic of the Sherman Antitrust laws ...and the fact that many agents online trample all over them is a topic that is often diiscussed here on trulia and on other RE sites.

It is a shame that so many agents are ignorant on this subject.
Thanks for trying to shine a light on this with your post.

@ Joanne- you decided to resurrect a 2.5 year old question with an answer that is terrible!
Yes, - inappropriate and terrible.
Well...........In one sentence you state "yes, all commissons are negotiable" then you march along and state what you believe to be the "standard or acceptable"commission!!!
Do you not see the conflict there?

I respectfully suggest you reread Walter's response, along with the reply I left for you.
I then suggest you delete your response as it can readily be seen as an attempt to set/fix prices even if that wasn't your intent.

ps Yes, Jim - I am always amazed when agents either don't bother to read what has been posted before they respond, or worse yet, they read it, and don't understand...... or don't care!
