Not an attorney, so this isn't legal advice.

No... you cannot fire your agent, now that they've brought you a buyer. But you do have the right to simply respond with a resounding 'no', when the buyer asks for you to pay more than you want to for repairs, or 'whatever the buyer wants'.

If you want to contact the buyer on your own, I suppose you could do that (no rules against it), but you will still owe your real estate agent/agency the commission that you signed for on your exclusive marketing agreement.

Yes, the buyer has their own agent... that's the way it normally works. The buyer found your home and photos online, and scheduled a showing through the efforts of your agent.

Carpeting or floor covering does depend on which group of buyer you are trying to attract. If you have a home that needs many updates it your biggest source of interest will be thru investors and you can expecta lower sales price compared to similar but updated homes. If you are looking to attract turn key (move in ready) home buyers it will be worth the investment to install a neutral color carpeting to Marley type home to the best audience. ... more

Gary, I have a web page wet up for such requests. Receive free marketing information for your neighborhood.
If Milwaukee employees are allowed to move to the suburbs, I think we may actually see some prices go up in Menomonee Falls. I have one listing and three buyers looking in Menomonee Falls. The really good deals are gone in a matter of days. Sales have increased during the last warm up, but have leveled off for the past 2 weeks. Let me know if you want information on your market emailed to you. I also have a page where I list all the sold units in Menomonee Falls over the past few months. ... more

Seems as if you received enough information to become more confused.

The price can vary. One agent answered with a list which pretty much covers the costs involved. My guess is he used an estimate of proceeds list. If you are interviewing agents make sure they estimate all the costs involved in selling your property. One agent stated they could not give you an answer because that would be providing legal advise. My training insists I provide a list of costs before presenting an Listing Contract. To me providing open and honest information is the standard method of doing business. It does not matter if I am buying groceries, a car, an appliance or a home. We have to remember we are in the service industry and the public should demand the highest quality of service we are able to provide.

Remember one more detail. Commissions are negotiable.
