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.

There must be something wrong with them since you are asking, so you probably do. They may look a lot nicer when done and people seem to love hardwood floors that look great. Avoid the full shiny gloss finish though. Satin may be best. ... more

Wendy Kiang answered:
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. Make sure you go on line to find a real estate company nearby ( doesn't have to be in the same town, but close enough so the Realtor is familiar with the community), and then interview the agent.

Ms2015henry answered:
The comps were a mix of similar, but mostly updated houses (fixtures & cabinets). The agent used a professional photographer. There is new paint throughout (off white or grey). We thought of replacing the ceiling fans and brass spotlights, but have trouble believing buyers would not come see the house due to that. We are VERY motivated.
Thank you for the feedback.

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!
