"Usually" the biggest turn off is the price. If you feel you are priced right, or at least, close to market value, you should look at your online presence. Have a neutral person look at your photos, they might see things you don't. The best comps will be your sold comps. Houses that are currently for sale may not reflect what your home will actually sell for. ... more

Average fee for all major real estate brokers is 6%. 3% to Buyer's Agent and 3% Seller's Agent. Although these fee's are not fixed one would assume so since 99% of listings offer the same. It's the unwritten standard amongst the real estate industry.

With Exclusive Properties Texas we offer limited service listings for as little as $99 to assist a FSBO client up to 4% with full service real estate services which includes only 1% to the Seller's Agent.. Most of our clients are able to sell quicker since they can sell for less and be more competitive.

Call to discuss options anytime if you are not currently working with another agent.

Your home is priced too high. Basic laws of selling are, 'if someone can buy a home comparable to yours or nicer for the same price or less, they always will.'

Maybe with creative marketing you can convince someone it's worth more than it is and get an offer but when the appraisal shows up for less than it's worth you'll be in a bind.

I closed a home last week that sold in 21 days.

You're probably saying right now, well it's comparable to others...but then again if it's not a deal or offering something 100% unique you will continue to burn daylight waiting on offers.

This is peak season with buyers on every corner looking for one thing, a good deal on the home they want....

Many people also assume their home is worth full tax value. Tax values are irrelevant as it relates to listing price, comparable homes dictate what people are willing to pay for your property.

Sincerely,

Nathan Beckey, Realtor

You're only responsible for what you negotiate in the contract. Could sell it as-is or decline all repairs that a buyer's agent or inspector may identify. Depending on the sales price the buyer may expect or not expect these to be corrected.

Always remember, in real estate, 'Everything is Negotiable'.

Ronda Allen answered:
Be sure you have the time if you try to go for the Fort Worth grant program (Neighborhood Stabilization Program) for a foreclosure. The banks may not wait for you to get your grant together. The last time I worked with the NSP, the bank would not wait up to 90 days for the loan to process and forced a decision to buy the home under FHA or they would move on to another buyer. NSP is not offered in every zip code and there are qualifications. I suggest you contact Paul Duncan at WR Starkey Mortgage if you want to find out more about the NSP (pduncan@wrstarkey.com). ... more
