Hi Chris,
If you are looking to sell your house, I’d be glad to sit down with you and share my specific marketing plan for your home. You can expect to get the maximum exposure for the best possible price. My fees are in-line with market commission rates; but my goal is to have you close your escrow with great satisfaction with my services. ... more

you can call a few appraisers and ask them to do a drive by appraisal. those are usually less expensive and gives you a piece of mind. however the appraiser will only ride by the property, they won't get out the car to look around the house. ... more

Commissions are always negotiable. You can always report the agents answering on here who should know that '5-6%' is NOT the'going rate' ...and could be considered colluding to fix commission rates.

Redfin will list your home for about 1% plus a competitive % for a buyers agent (2.5-3%) might to check there.

Also, Realtors who state "A flat fee such as you are offering will be very difficult to entice a buyer's agent as they may choose other homes to show' should know they are in clear violation of the Realtor's code of ethics, which states a Realtor is obligated to cooperate with other Realtors when it is in the best interest of the client.

Barry if you have sufficient equity in your current home and need to sell it for the down payment on a new one we can cross-collateralize both properties until the vacated property is sold.

See portfolio lenders / niche products on my website.

Happy funding, Rudi

Well, there could be a lot of ways, but one of the easiest would be to travel to some open houses on the weekends and chat with some of the realtors holding open homes in your area. After a good conversation you could usually tell who has a pulse on your local market. After doing that set up an appointment and interview the agent for the job. One agent that I know works and lives the San Bruno market is Dave Tapper 415-370-7195. He's been a top agent in San Bruno for many years. Call or google him and I think you might be impressed by his volume of San Bruno transactions.

Good Luck,
