It's unfortunate, but the answer is not good. In fact, East Norriton, West Norriton, etc all fall in the Norristown School District, which has the lowest scores in Montgomery County. Taxes aren't necessarily low either. I would suggest looking in the Methacton School District, Upper Merion or Colonial. ... more

In addition to this old neighborhood not being able to handle the traffic pattern of Darby and Marple Rds, the recent traffic explosion will only get worse due to the development and opening of the new Haverford Reserve, which is just around the corner from Marple Rd.

First of all, I bet you didn't know that attorneys can generally get part of the commission when they make a referral to an agent. You might want to find out if that is the case here.

Second, yes, real estate agents get paid for handling the transaction, and the commission you mention of 6%, while always negotiable, seems within the "normal" range. In fact, Fannie Mae recently issued a statement relating to short sales in which it gave blanket approval for commissions up to six percent for selling a home. So, a major lending institute, even when they are paying the bill, acknowledges that nationwide this is a reasonable fee for residential real estate.

Lastly, I am not sure I understand your question.... attorney hired a realtor and then you asked him to buy the house for half price? Why'd you do that? If you wanted to "give" your friend the house for half price, why was a real estate agent involved at all?
