UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi, Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area. We started UpNest ( to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to "comparison shop" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck! ... more

Paralegaltec…, Home Buyer in Alexandria, VA

Paralegaltechxx answered:
call some reputable agents and ask about the S.H.I.P:. program (for first time home buyers). I was lucky enough to have an agent that knew about the program and got me signed up. i think a lot of agents don't want to deal with what they consider the aggravation of the additional paperwork and rules, etc., that come along with the ship program. It is worth finding an agent and lender who will work with the S.H.I.P. program. My lender was RateOne Home Loans, but I don't recall the agent's name. I bought a home in wpb and got an interest rate of around 2 percent. The S.H.I.P. program also give you money up front (at closing) to fix up the home. As long as you are there ten years, you don't have to pay back that money (it is setup as a second mortgage, but the program pays it unless you move prior to ten years passing, at which point it would be pro-rated). Good luck!\\ ... more

Hi Rodney, I could find no evidence of this home being for sale, but I did find a rental listing without the unit number...apparently, A thru D are the unit numbers for this address.

Here is the link to the rental listing:,sublet,room,corporate&loan=30,0.0525,0

Dear Mario,
Palm Beach County is the largest county in Florida. As you can imagine, there will be areas with more and less crime. If you are considering to relocate to the West Palm Beach area for work, then you will have a many options of places to buy or rent. You need to work with an agent who will listen to your needs and help you find the best options available for you.

I cover the area between West Palm Beach and Jupiter and would be happy to help you find a property to buy or rent.
Sincerely, Susanna Grubb

Pat & Steve…, Real Estate Pro in Westlake, OH

Pat & Steve Pribisko answered:
You signed a contact. You have caused the property to be off of the market for a "couple of months," which prevented the Seller from marketing the property to others. I am assuming that you are well past the inspection stage. The Seller & your agent are just waiting the for the closing date. You can walk away, but the Seller can sue you for damages once the property has been sold to another Buyer. Money held in escrow will probably stay where it is, because the Seller will not sign a release. You need to talk to your Realtor about your decision. Your Realtor has already done a lot of work. If you signed a Buyer's Agreement, you may already owe your Realtor compensation for his/her services. You may want to consult with an Attorney who handles residential real estate matters before you walk away.

Mar Ran,

There has been a tremendous amount of sales activity in Cresthaven over the past 90 days with 16 successful closings ranging in sales price from $19,900 up to $61,500. The median sold property went for $32,000 and had about 945 livable square feet which would be about $34 per livable square foot. Some sales were above that level and some below.

If you need assistance in finding the perfect Cresthaven home please feel free to contact me and I would be more than happy to help. Once I learn more about your specific needs I can provide you detailed information on any homes that may be a fit.

I hope that this information helps answer your questions but if you need anything additional I am here.

Always at Your Service,

Yes there a law with the 80/20 but be careful because the office of the condo does not always figure it out the way you might.
