Hi, Ashley!
All good answers here. I think you need to milk the traffic from Parade of Homes Spring Preview as MUCH as possible. So, I hope you have your home on the market now so that you can get some benefit from the people out looking at Parade homes as much as possible.

You have many time constraints here that may impact your decision making. I hope you have the margin available for you not to have to do a short sale. Market is still down, so make sure you price your property carefully in order to meet your time deadlines you speak of.

I meet many sellers who say, "We have to get $xxxx for the house to make it work for us." Unfortunately, that statement doesn't hold water when determining market value. Market price is determined by what the other similar houses are going for in your area. So, just a cautionary tale to make sure you keep your real goals in mind (i.e. your timing) and not over price which will end up making the whole process much more difficult.

Good luck!!!!

Everyone on here is correct we can't talk about others fees and it is all negotiable.

I do see this question come up quite regularly on Trulia and I always have the same response. Interview x amount of agents until you find one that works well with whatever you have defined as your expectations for this transaction. Every seller has their own variables they highly value and it is just a matter of finding a realtor who fits that description. Then, the commission is something you talk about and both parties agree to it.

Your zip code is in my primary area so I would certainly love to be one of those agents interviewed. If you contact me directly we can talk about what I charge.

Good Luck Michelle!
