UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Commission is always negotiable, and the Department of Justice even condones it as good competitive behavior among agents.

The typical commission is close to 6%, but that can really vary depending on the location and price of the home you're wanting to sell. Many agents are willing to be flexible on commission rates, but it's not something they like to advertise. And most clients are not very capable or comfortable negotiating rates.

At UpNest,, we created an online marketplace where home sellers can confidentially submit their homes, and multiple top local agents will compete to obtain your listing. Some agents lower their commission rates to stand out, and every agent that submits a proposal is an experienced agent, so it's not the same as working with a low grade discount brokerage.

Hope that helps!

Hi Vickie!
Double check with your management what is a sublet policy in your building. Usually its after 2 years, but some buildings has even after 1 year. You can request from them the sublet application. Pay attention to application fee and the amount of documents they require from potential tenant and how long the management take to review the application. I can help you to determine what is better for you to rent or sell in todays market. Right now a lot of people looking to purchase because of first time home buyer tax credit but still some people looking for rent.
Feel free to contact me for highest price analysis directly: 718-781-3074

Thanks to those that responded. Most answers were basically in line with my own thoughts. We stayed and plan on sticking here for another year and a half. Research indicates housing markets historically take 6 years to recover after a major hit. So, it can only go back up. (barring a double housing dip). We set the coop market in FH at $249K over 2 years ago. That still seems to be the going rate. ... more
