Bill Gassett answered:
You should never agree to single dual agency ever! There is no benefit to anyone other than the real estate agent. When you agree to dual agency you give up having an advocate in your corner. The agent by law is not allowed to council you.

It totally defeats the purpose of having a real estate agent - someone who will fight hard for your best interests.

Any real estate agent who tells you otherwise is looking out for one thing - their own purse or wallet.

Take a look at the comprehensive reference on why dual agency is so bad for consumers.

May I suggest you contact a mortgage broker to answer all the VA loan questions. I recommend contacting Ed Dubinsky: Phone: 215-808-5353 E-mail:

Good luck with everything. If you need any other assistance, again, please feel free to call me anytime.
It's always nice to be able to help a fellow Veteran.

Everyone has provided you with pretty good answers. In Philadelphia, total closing costs may cost somewhere between 6 to 8% of the purchase price. That should include all loan origination and underwriting costs and settlement costs.

Good luck with your purchase. If I can ever be of assistance to you in any real estate matters, please feel free to contact me anytime. Have a great week.

Scott McIntosh answered:
Just know going into the deal that depending on how hot the market is when you sell, it could be a tough resale.
You will most likely need to be a screaming deal when you turn to sell, so make sure that is the case when you buy the home. As long as you love the house and your comfortable with the location, noise, etc.. then go for it. Again, just make sure it's a screaming deal to justify the location. ... more

Joe Salcedo answered:
Good Morning James,

You made an offer and accepted right? The offer is depends on the CMA-
meaning Comparable Market Analysis did the agent show you how he come
out with the price. The price come from you not the agent but keep in mind that
the price should supported by the CMA giving advise and also depend on the
condition of the property there are many variables things involve.

Keith Sorem answered:
I would suggest that you review your buyer broker agreement.

It seems odd to me that you would simply "overlook" this matter. OTOH if the Realtor did not tell you personally, I am surprised it was not on an estimate of buyer's expenses. Did you receive an estimate?

Most Realtors are interested in long term business relationships. It seems odd that this would not have come up initially.
