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

My NC Homes Team answered:
There's no reason to offer the buyer broker an incentive, if you've had 60 views and the house shows well, then the answer is simple, you don't have it priced right. Honestly that's all there is to it. Honestly when homes are properly priced they sell within the first 60 days or less. The market is clearly telling you that you're priced wrong and it's time to listen.

What you paid for the house or have invested in it, or feel you need to have are all irrelevant. You will only get what the market is paying and the market is always set by ready willing and able buyers. The 60 people who have viewed your home simply bought another as they perceived more value and that's directly related to pricing.

Speak to your Realtor.. Review the market data, see what's been selling while your's has not and then readjust your price.

J.D. "Dan" & Carol Weisenburger answered:
Amazingly, the more a house is worth the more a realtor can earn for you than you can yourself. In areas close in to downtown with or without a realtor the money into your pocket is about the same

In affluent areas like around Davidsonville an skilled agent can earn you as much as 14% more than you can (considering getting 21% higher sale price minus 7% commission)

Paul Robinson answered:
Hello Sean, the best advice I can give you on searching for a Real Estate agent that you will hire to list your home is, do not base your decision solely on the price. You have indicated in your inquiry that you are a serious seller as long as the Price is Right.. Unlike the game show the agent does not set the market value of the home, the current Real Estate market dictates the value. A skilled agent will determine this value range of your home based on detailed analysis of Sold, Under Contract, Active and Expired listings and prepare a Comparative Market Analysis for you to determine your homes range of value. It is imperative to list all properties in their proper range of value to achieve the highest sold amount in price in the least amount of time.
Also regarding the additional lots that have been subdivided I can also provide you with a list of reputable builders to choose from that would be interested in viewing your lots and would be in the position to make fair market offers on the lots.

Hope this information has been helpful, please advise if I can be of any further assistance,

Best Regards, Paul

Scott Smolen answered:

This firm in the link below specializes in short sales in Maryland. Are you already facing a foreclosure at this time and considering bankruptcy in order to stop the process?

Please feel free to contact them and let them know that I gave you their name. Their services are free to my Sellers as we have a business relationship. If you decided to do a short sale, the bank will actually pay all of our fees and you would have zero out of pocket expense.

Please let me know if I can help you in anyway and I will be happy to do anything that I can.

June Piper-Brandon, MRP answered:
There are currently 3 active listings nearby ranging in price from $131,250 to $229,500. There are 6 homes under contract ranging in price from $115,000 to $199,500. Then there have been 10 homes sold ranging in price from $118,000 to $194,900. These are the statistics for the first half of 2012. I chose homes that closely resemble the home at this address and share the same number of bedrooms and bathrooms, no basement and similar square footage. If I can be of any further help please don't hesitate to ask.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Zestimate which sounds similar to Guestimate is just that, an inaccurate ball park figure. From time to time a accident in statistics occurs and the guess and a market evaluation are similar.

If you are in need of accurate and timely data to make a home buying or selling decision, you would be well advised to not rely on aggregate websites. Your local Glen Burnie real estate professional will provide you free access to the most accurate, comprehensive, timely database available, your local MLS. Your local realtor will provide this access to you freely. Your only cost will be to pick up the phone and call.
No - don't email.
No - don't do the website link

Be advised, if you call between 10am and 12 noon, and your call goes to voice may want to call the next agent.

Of course the choice is always yours.
Best of success in 2012

We are buyers and of course are being told the market we are buying in has not gone down. That seems to be the case when we buy but not when we sell. Hmmm.....
