How about a list of the local real estate companies & what rates & charges that they charge. This saves in calling all & asking the what they charge. This would take hours to do. We need one stop shopping. ... more

The property is listed by different person. We contacted the individual on your site and they said they could not let us see the property (inside) but we could look in the windows.

Is this a Townhouse unit? There are many different condo styles in Rona Village, as well as property conditions. Typically HOA fees are included in the rent quotes, but this is something you should confirm with the owner prior to engaging in a lease. The number for the Rona Fairborn association is (937) 878-2360 should you have any questions regarding the common property areas, pool, etc. ... more

Every agent has different experiences, I'll try a Sunday and if no traffic go to Mon or Thurs 4-5:30 and catch people on the way home from work. During the summer there are so many competing events for Sundays (vacations, graduations) and toward end of Aug & Sept there are festivals etc. every week end. Open houses rarely sell a house, but agents like to do them to meet potential buyers. Advertise? if listed, it's going to post on MLS,, truila etc. and many times posted in the paper. Signs r good. Near WPAFB, advertising in the base publications good. I might consider getting some info to the Senior Centers in case there is someone considering downsizing that may be interested. Good luck! ... more

Deb, I agree with the answers you have received here so far, especially the line "you get what you pay for ".

Interview several agents and ask them to provide a market analysis of your home, including the co-broke commission (the amount offered to the buyer agent). of the homes they use for comparison. You should expect to pay double this as most agents split the commission 50-50 to attract buyers who are working with agents other than themselves.

If the commission offered to a buyers agent is low, you can expect human nature to take over and you will generally see fewer showings as these agents "may" be unwilling to work for the offered commission amount and will not show your property. This goes against the general Realtor Code of Ethics, but is something I see and hear about everyday.

Good luck with your decision!

There are many web sites that sell that information. However I have found in many cases it is outdated information. The best way is work with a Realtor you trust and he can get you everything free and up to date from your local MLS.
Remember all REO's are not always a good deal. So you and your Realtor should do your homework.

I'm a HUD listing agent for Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors in the Dayton Metro area, of which Fairborn is a part. Many of the HUD listings are in need of repair/updating. I've worked extensively with NHMSI (HUD's management contractor) and know the ins and outs of bidding and buying a HUD home. Please give me a call and we can discuss what you're looking for.
