Trulia does not accept FSBO listings by the homeowner, only by licensed real estate agents. Try Zillow instead.

H Ahwatukee Skies:

It is not that unusual for the buyer or the buyer's agent, more likely, to want to dictate which title company is used. They might just feel more comfortable with a particular title/escrow officer. It does impact your fees, though, so you might want to compare title company fees before you agree or not.

As to the fee and 9%. Extremely high for this market. Realtors lost a law suit many years ago which means they are not suppose to have set fees. Reality is, most start with the idea of splitting 6% amongst them, so for yours to have 9% AND $2,500 seems out of whack. I have a few good realtors I could put you in touch with, who could give you a better sense of what the going rate would be. A bit late in the process, but you should always shop around for a good realtor. They vary greatly in their level of professionalism.

Good luck.

Mary answered:
We cannot say when we will be told to move, it could be as early as six months or as long as 2-3 years. This is one of the problems we are facing, when we are told to move we do not have much time but we do not want to do anything too rash in case we have more time for the market to recover or a better option to come about. However, even if, at best, we have 3 years, I do not think that is enough time for us to regain the lost value. ... more
