Annette Lawrence answered:
Buyers are looking for VALUE.

Too many interpret that as bargain.

The home seller will determine if their home is to compete in the 'VALUE' market or the bargain price market by the decisions they make.

Your question is INVALID because it assumes bargain is the goal.

The REAL goal is NEVER the price with the exception of some transactions in the investor market.

For you, the value a professional can bring is priceless!

Yes a wall mount lock box is very sturdy and will be able to withstand all types of weather conditions. We prefer a wall mount lock box over a free standing one because of this reason.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Is there a copyright?

Does the management company or association impose replication restrictions?

Are you certain your set is complete and current?

I NEVER provide the documents until the buyer has exhibited interest in the form of a purchase offer.
You will soon realize the benefit of being selective.

If your intent is to sell your condo, do those things in alignment with that goal. Being the provider of information of interest to others does not advance that goal.

It really depends on how you want to spend your time and resources. A BUYER is entitled to this data, a tire kicker is not.

Sandra Scranton answered:
Selling one's home is an emotional experience. It's not just the physical building itself you are selling but the feelings and memories which come with it. It is, after all, your HOME, where your heart and family reside. When selling, however, one must put that aside and go with the FACTS; is your home as well-maintained as others in your community which have sold? Does it have the same upgrades? Does it contain any extras such as an additional garage, fireplace, deck, etc.? It must be compared with homes as similar as possible for appropriate pricing. And finally, as painful as this reality is to sellers, your home's VALUE is what someone is willing to pay for it!

Selling a home during a winter like this year is challenging. So is factoring in the holidays. But, if it has been on the market for 60 days without an offer, it's time for a price reduction. Let your agent (or if you are selling on your own, the price which similar homes in your community have sold for, guide you. Sometimes even a small reduction in price will bring fence-sitting buyers who loved everything BUT the price, off the fence to you with an offer.

Good luck!

Eduardo Viegas answered:
In NJ the Law states that a real estate commission transaction is only earned at closing of title.
All deposits moneys are in escrow account until the closing of title.
So no Real Estate Agent will get is commission if is no closing.
Any more questions please feel free to contact me.
Thanks and good lucky on your purchase.

Paul is correct. They're to many variables for an accurate answer to your question. Are you interested in single or multi family, do you want a move-in property or something you can fix up? Also are you interested in short sales? I will be happy to help you in this matter. Please call me if you need my help.

What kills me is that agents just answer and do not think about what they are doing...

TO ME... when I see and agent answer a questions that is two years old, it shows me that they lack the detail and eye for details by responding like it just happened when it is one or two years old..

It could be a great answer, But you are two years late to the party. Everybody went home.

Bill Eckler answered:
This is a most unfortunate situation and one in which you seem to be a victim of circumstances. I would recommend visiting the broker with your listing contract in hand and request a clarification of your options.

This sounds as if there may be an agreement between the broker and agent that leaves the listings ownership in the hands of the listing agent and not the broker. Seeking a clear appreciation of the role of the broker and agent with regards to listing ownership would be important to understanding your options.

Good luck,

Murphy Wilson answered:
I have successfully sold multi-family properties in this area and I agree that it is critical to meet with the tenants and landlord to review what will be happening. It was my experience however, that agreeing to hold an "open house" on specific days ( a week day + a weekend day) was very effective and minimized the disruption on the tenants. They know when and for how long and even if only some of them participate it keeps the stress levels down for them/you/the landlord. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact me directly. ... more
