You're having a hard time because for sale by owners cannot list on Trulia. Only agents may post listings here.

It is confusing, and you're not the first consumer to ask about this

Try - they allow fsbo's

Hello Rameshj, the key is to check current and previous listings for the agent and the average time to sell it, good luck!

That's funny, it looks like Jim copy and pasted Brad's answer.

However, one thing both neglected to say: As a seller you shouldn't pay
for inspections.

Typically, you will have Title insurance (based on sales price, for example: $700 for a sale of abt $160,000 - $170,000), Broker commission (if applicable), taxes (abt one year's because we do pay in arrears), Title fee for closing services (abt $130-$150). You mentioned condo fees, so yes, if you sell a condo, you must catch up (prorate) the fees - of course if you are paid ahead, you'll get the overage back.

Finally, work with a good title company. Of course, I always suggest using a good agent like myself.
But if you are going alone, your title company will provide you a net profit statement and Jerry Andrews,
317-251-6705, can do you a good appraisal, so you know where to price your home.

I hope that fleshes out the numbers a little better for you.

Thx for asking,

I think this situation was handled badly. The buyer could have agreed to pay his agent more than your co-op without involving you at all.
In California the co-op fee cannot be a factor in how an agent represents a client in a transaction. Any negotiation has to be done between the brokerages. In this case though it was placed in to the contract, inflating the offer price. As long as you countered and they countered your counter offer it is not blackmail. Remmeber that the buyer is the party bringing the money to the table and as long as you are satisfied with your net proceeds it really doesn't matter.
I had a situation where the I offered on a proerty and the seller counterd that I'd have to accept a lower commission than what was in the MLS. Obviously my client offered less tahn asking. My client looked at me and asked can the seller do that and I had to reply that "it could not be a consideration in how he procedded".
