Unless you have cash buyers, there is no "greedy". You're still going to be limited by the lender's appraisal. There's nothing at all wrong with "best and final". That's the standard way to handle two competing offers. ... more

Yes, Jtolino - the seller pays this fee, referred to as the NJ State Tansfer Fee ( the "RTF"). As you have found out by now, it is based on the purchase price of the home.

The good news is, if you're a senior citizen- you get a discount!

Here's a link to help you calculate the fee

By the way, if the home is selling for over 1 million, the buyers get to pay a transfer fee/tax, too (lucky them!). They have to pay 1% of the purchase price!

Good luck with your sale!

Jeffrey Halpern answered:
Are you being influenced by a competing Realtor? If so, then that Realtor is not adhering to the Realtor Code of Ethics and therefore I would stay away from that agent. Instead, and as stated before, discuss where you are with that agent. Maybe your perception of your agent's job function is much greater than what was told you or vice-a-versa.
The biggest downfall in a Realtor-Client relationship is communication. Many agents, who work hard for their clients, never tell them what they are doing. Have the agent document what they are doing for you and then determine if that agent should be fired. Also discuss the same with their Broker-Manager.
Good luck!!

I figured I would give you an update just in case you held pat. Market is still a buyers market and home values continue to slide. If tou were lucky to have bought anytime before 2002, you can still make out! I am an EW expert, 30 year resident and 90% of all my listings and sales are in EW. So, take it from me when I say that all real estate in EW has fallen in value, but the lower end has fallen less than the higher end and its demise took a lot longer to materialize. The bottom line is that as long as you are going to buy a higher end home, you will gain in equity! If you were downsizing, I would not recommend a move. I cannot be sure what price I would peg your unit at unless I see it. If you want my expert opinion, send me an email or sign onto my website. I have sold more East Windsor homes during the last two years than any other Realtor. My e-mail is and my website is Or, you can call me anytime at 609 647-6818. ... more
