Both Buyer And Seller, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY
both of the above answers are hogwash. Always ask - where does the information come from and who benefits.... I've been watching home prices fall for two years straight - ask any agent/broker and they'll all say 'oh...it's bottomed out' - never trust an agent/broker - commission should be by sale, not percentage, then they might be motivated to sell for actual market value, which is 20% lower than asking price today - how do I know? follow the trend - 2002-2003 prices today fall in line with historic appreciation rates - don't be fooled by the middlemen...
