In most cases, the seller offers a commission to the listing brokerage, and the listing broker offers a portion to a buyer's broker (in this case 2.5%). The buyer's representation agreement you signed would have to stipulate what commissions are due, and if what the seller offers is not at or above that level, if you are responsible for the balance. If your representation agreement doesn't stipulate the commissions due from you, you are not obligated. Also, don't forget that commissions are only paid to the brokerage the agent works for, who then pays their agent a portion. Sellers of lower priced homes may indeed pay a higher percentage, but again, the amount and who pays the buyer's agent must be pre-defined as stated above. Good luck in your new home! ... more

I am sure that would vary according to the type of garage on the property. Some garages are cheap 2 car garages and, while they might be sturdily built, they are relatively cheap to erect.

Hi Sale,

If your home is currently listed for sale on Trulia, your agent can edit the listing information within his or her Trulia account. If however the home is not on the market, you as the owner can claim the home and edit the home facts. Those updated facts will then be shown on the listing page under the heading "Owner Information."

Please let us know if you or your agent experiences any difficulties making these updates, or if you have any other questions.

Best Wishes,

Emily Erekuff

In addition to having a formal appraisal, you need to have a home inspection. Yes, a home inspection. It will do you no good to only determine the value of the home if the home as some major issue that needs to be addressed.
