First of all, when hiring an agent, it should be agreed, in writing if needed, to terminate the listing if you are not happy. Some will ask for an advertising fee up front that is non-refundable if there is one. Ask the broker in charge. They will probably try to ask you to let them put another agent on the listing, but, tell them no if you wish. Also, ask about the license # on your contract. Otherwise, another agent with the correct 3% commission for the buyers agent shows you are giving the company a chance. If you are not satisfied with the answers you get tell them to come get their sign and lockbox. Larger companies are not always the best. A "top selling" agent with a team is not always the best choice either. Customer service seems like it has gone out of style, but, after 22 years of being a Realtor myself, I know it should still be the number one objective. ... more

First and most important make sure your home is priced right.

Now, incentives do attract buyers, especially first time buyers.

Make sure your agent stipulates that commissions will be paid based on sales price less concessions.

This way you do not pay a commission on funds you have given away to the buyer.

Best of luck to you.

The outer areas and the homes in the hills are always going to be prone to fire.
YL is safe or I would not live here. We also do not have the price drops as other areas have. Look at the income statistics and you will see YL is in the top tier. Schools are great too.
What you have to be aware of is agents will not always tell the truth on how location in YL is paramount. Having been a broker for 34 years and in YL since 1981 I think I know a bit about this. No I am not asking for business. I am retired in YL and love it. I just cannot stand all these preening agents who fail in the ethics class daily. Stay close to the high schools and W/I 3 miles of Kellogg. Learn the school areas. East Lake offers the most bang for the buck since the private lake and pools, gym etc.. are a bargain. Go with a proven agent, not one with a slick flier who drops you off to a newbie once contact is made. Avoid teams. Do not go past the Honda dealership. Watch for people walking.. enjoying the area.... stay away from ghost town developments in outlying areas and homes built before 1980
