Best place is working with a good agent. This is part of their jobs and most good agents would be happy to provide for you.

Buy gold or silver to give to your agent. The government doesn't recognize gold and silver as legal tender, so there you go.

The listing agent should be aware that your listing is coming up to expire. It his/her duty to get in touch with you to discuss your next option. I wouldn't wait around for the agent. It seems like she either has too much on her/his plate or "its just another listing".According the the listing agreement, once it expired, its over. You can resign a new listing agreement, or take it off the market. Find someone who will keep you updated and communicates with you. I only take on five clients at a time, so I can spend time with the needs of all my clients whether a buyer or seller.

Maxine Anderson answered:
First of all it is the Agents duty to do all their own paperwork. A TC is fantastic to have but it is not a buyer or sellers obligation to pay this fee. If the agent wants you to pay this the agent would have had you sign a paper stating you would pay this fee. I personally pay my TC all fees and never burden the buyer or seller with this. A TC is never 1,600.00 OMG! Normal is 375.00 to 450.00 per side.

I hope this has helped you. Report them to the DRE!

If you listing contract has expired you need do nothing except ask the agent why you are being troubled with this detail. Is it because the agent wants to provide cover for his/her error? If the agent is uncooperative, speak to the agent’s broker. ... more

That depends.... hmmmm. In a short sale...if you can talk to the listing agent in the beginning and convince them that submitting an offer to the bank AT LIST PRICE or OVER LIST PRICE is the deadliest thing they can do....and get them to submit a LOWER OFFER which is what really needs to be done...then a short sale would be good....just beware that there is no guarantee of the outcome and be ready to wait out the approval period.
It all depends on the negotiator in a short sale. If the listing agent is a savvy negotiator then great..if the buyer agent is a savvy negotiator and the listing agent will allow the buyer agent to do the negotiations..then awesome! It's whoever is a better and more experienced negotiator.
In a bank owned home...once it is listed on the mls or market..the bank wants the price it is listed at or higher. They really won't entertain low ball offers. It all depends on if the property is priced right to begin with.... if it is..then it will go in a few days with multiple offers..if it is too high, then it will sit and sit and sit..and this could be a good time..when the bank is not getting offers anymore, yet they have not lowered the price yet...to come in with a realistic offer at a price it really needs to be at...and this is when you usually get lucky and can get it at a lower price.... Hope this helps...
