Why is it that one of the sellers won't sign? I would suggest that you discuss this with your realtor. California is a community property state so both husband and wife need to sign to sell. ... more

Micah Matson answered:
You always have a say. If you are going FSBO, you could choose to not offer a commission at all to a Buyer's agent and just hope that you can sell the home yourself. However, I would not recommend that since most buyers are already working with an agent and agents will not show your home if you are not offering a commission. I would offer the going rate if I were you. When you lower the commission you risk agents not showing the home at all and that isn't worth the money you might save. ... more

Hi Mike,

You can leave a recommendation/review for the Realtor of your choice at their profile. If you search for their name in the Agent Directory they should come up and you can click on their profile. From there you will find a tab that says, "Leave a Review." Click that and it will prompt you to rate the Realtor, enter some information regarding your sale or purchase, and then you can leave a written review.

I hope this was helpful and good luck!

If your Realtor is also the seller’s agent, then it would be unethical to disclose what the other offer is. If your Realtor only represents you, then they would be aware of other offers but not the specifics. Best of luck. ... more

Hey Michael and Jenny,

Working with a top agent is really the way to go. You want someone experienced in making this kind of magic happen. I wouldn't just call one person, which is what most people do.

Our platform at allows you to anonymously submit a few details about your home, and then multiple top performing agents compete to obtain your listing. Competition usually brings out the best in people, including great services and potentially lower commission rates so you can get a great net price on everything.

You can add in the notes that you're looking for a quick sell and buy process, so agents will take note of that and let you know their experience with that.

Hope that helps!

Many of the reasons below are the same reason I moved here. Main reasons were the schools for my kids and the incredibly low crime rate. The downtown area/ restaurants and the proximity to the SF as well as SJ also played a key role.. ... more

Abbie Higashi answered:
A buyer and seller may negotiate, while in contract, for items to be repaired. However, in the same manner that a Seller is not obligated to undertake repairs, a Buyer is not obligated to accept repairs. In the purchase contract, it notes that a Buyer may request repairs OR take other action. That other action, of course, can mean walking away from the contract. The buyer, though, would certainly be held to their obligations under the contract so "walking away" from it will have a result specific to the original contract terms (were there contingencies? was earnest money forfeited?, etc.). ... more

The official time is 9:30-1:00pm, although specific times are often noted or modified for each property. It is always best to check the tour sheet.
