There is no "one" fee that western Chicago agents charge. Each agent/agency charges their fee based on the services they offer.

Contact several agents/agencies and ask what they charge, and what they offer for that fee.

Good luck.

The commission is usually a percentage of the sale price but a good Realtor's motivation is not to sell just higher price homes, a good Realtor will be concentrating on selling his/her listings regardless of the price. I have been in real estate since 1987, I can tell you honestly that I treat all my listings with the same kind of energy and expertise to make sure that we sell the property.

Condo sales are a bit different because you have association, condo documents and condo rules and regulations to think about.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!
