This question was asked back in June, so I am hoping you were abel to get everything worked out with your agent. It does look like you were pretty frustrated at that time since you asked four questions, all of which seem to imply that you did not understand what the agent was doing or why the agent was doing it. So, just for the sake of everyone who is following this question. When putting a house on the market, your real estate agent should make sure you fully understand all the important provisions in your listing agreement. You do not have to agree to any scheduled reductions, but you can if you like. If your agent wants to reduce the price of your home or wants to reduce it beyond a schedule contractual reduction, you may say "no." The main lesson here is that you should make sure you thoroughly understand the listing agreement. And, if you do not, you really should talk to an attorney who can explain it to you.
