If I were you, I would list through It is a free service and syndicates to Zillow, Trulia, HotPads, and several other great sites for FREE.

I understand you not wanting to spend money on an agent, but let me ask you this... When buyers walk through your home with representation and a laundry list of comparable homes, who will represent your best interest and defend your asking price? ... more

No not yet in the process and have to clear up property taxes due for this year too. went by it and the place is a mess - cabinets pulled away from walls, holes in flooring, oil can attracting bugs, rats moving in and out from underneath house. Needs to be reported to the City of Slidell for critters hiding on the porch, back part and everywhere. There are drug bottles full of pills in the window of the front part showing that illegal activity is going on. Cigarettes are also stored on the front porch showing people are hiding there and smoking who knows what. Homeless people are sleeping in a stupor on the front porch. Scared me when I went by to see if a for sale was up yet. POLICE need to be notified that all the above is done there and they need to peek in the far window to see the drugs being stored there. ... more

In the last 90 days there have been 3 homes sold in my Bon Village neighborhood at an average price of $178,000. Currently, there are 2 listed ranging from $214,500-199, 700 and one under contract @ $150,000. Sold prices vary depending on the upgrades done to these over 30 yr. old homes. Bon Village is a nice neighborhood with good schools and close to interstates.

If I can be of further assistance, email me

Patsy, if your condo is on a bayou here In Slidell, chances are the other condos there have also been completely refurbished in the last 5 years also -- no doubt due to the destruction caused by H.Katrina. Therefore, even though no two condos will be exactly the same, there will be similarities and market values may not vary greatly. Call me if you would like me to meet with your and look over your appraisal for you.

Without knowing more about the situation I would say that a buyer could think that they over-paid for that property and may ask for an adjustment of the sales price. Sure, another appraisal could be ordered but I don't think that the Buyer will want to pay for another since they sit is a good position to renegotiate. Appraisers are usually selected by the bank and there isn't much we can do- we get whomever we get. If you are the Seller you could pay for another or try to speak to that appraiser but it is a tricky place. If that bank's appraiser under valued the property then that means they will not loan enough for the buyer to purchase. The buyer will have to come up with additional funds or start over with a new bank. Tricky situation and I have been in it and it takes careful thought to hold it together. Good luck. ... more

Daniel answered:
reality is, agents are commissioned salespeople. Higher commission opportunities WILL ALWAYS draw a larger crowd than a lower commission

tell the listing agent that you wll pay a total of 6% and out of that 6% YOU WANT to guarantee that the agent bringing the buyer will recieve 5% commission.

after all, anyone can list house, the real talent is getting the buyer!

Cant wait to hear the squaking!
