No. Advertising a property for sale is for the seller's benefit - not the buyer's. What matters to you is the terms of your Purchase Contract. You need to know that with new builds, the builders use contracts written by lawyers to benefit them - not you. Builders do not use standard state contracts used by realtors.

Do you have your own realtor representing you or are you working with the builder's sales agent? Did you use your own lender or are you using the builder's lender? For both, I sincerely hope you have your own team - not connected with the builder.

Hello,

We are a real estate search engine so we don't represent the homes found on our site. Please follow these steps to begin your home search:

1. Click the 'BUY' tab at the top of our homepage.
2. Enter your desired city and state in the search bar and hit Enter.
3. Click 'Max Price' to select what your highest price would be to pay for a home. Click 'Min Price' to set the lowest price you would pay.
4. Select your preferred property type, square footage, allowed pets, etc.
5. Click the orange 'Done' button.

This will begin to pull up listings that are more tailored to what you are looking for.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
I noticed this question was asked a while ago, but wanted to contribute for anyone that comes by.

Most of the time you will come across 6%, but there's no set or standard commission rate across the industry.

Depending on the location and potential selling price of your home, you absolutely can negotiate commission rates. Even with top agents. Keep in mind that working with a reputable agent that can sell your home for the most amount of money is better than finding any agent that will lower their commission rate.

The key to negotiating is to compare multiple agents, and interview all of them. We streamlined this process at UpNest (http://www.upnest.com) by creating a marketplace where top local agents compete against each other to earn your listing. When agents compete, they bring out their most competitive commission rates and value added services. You also get the satisfaction of "comparison shopping" for agents.

It will depend on your income, amount of debt and how much you have saved. You should meet with a local and trusted loan officer who can pre qualify you at no cost

It's not for sale. Any valuation would be a guess and not worth relying on.

Mariliz,
You have great questions and they need to be directed to a great local agent, along with hundreds of other questions you're going to have. Generally there are two agents/brokers involved with every transaction. One represents the sellers and the other represents you. Each one does their best to get the best possible outcome for their client, which means if you are dealing with the listing agent, you are giving up confidentiality and putting yourself at a disadvantage.
List price is not an objective value, it's a marketing strategy. Some will over price their home, others may under price to get a bidding war started. Some may price about right, but depending on their motivation may accept less. It will come down to the research your agent does on your behalf and your level of motivation.
Step one, is to find a great agent who will look out for your needs first. The rest will follow. Best of luck and welcome to the US!

I think that it would probably be a really good idea for you to replace the driveway. When a driveway has a lot of cracks in it, it can definitely bring down the overall value, as well as bringing down the curb appeal. You should probably try to find a good contractor that can get this done quickly for you before you start working on selling it. And I think that you should be able to stay out of the red as far as cost goes, since it will probably help out a lot with getting initial interest for your home. I wish you luck! http://www.afconcretepumping.com.au ... more
