Asked by Mdn31, Milwaukee County, WI • Sun Jan 29, 2012
After months of lamenting, searching, and researching, I think I have narrowed down a couple of Realtors for my short sale listings. Most Realtors in my area charge an upfront fee of 500-600 dollars. Since I will be doing two separate properties, I would be looking at a hefty 1000-1200 upfront. That is a lot for someone struggling. I did find one agent who does not charge a fee. She is from Keller Williams. The other one, from Re-Max, does charge the fee but seems to be a bit more aggressive. That said, I don't want to base my choice on fee/no fee, but I would rather base it on who is better. It is a tough call. Does anyone know why this fee is charged? I think it is legal in WI, but do I need to be leery of the Realtors who ask for it? Or perhaps I will get better service from someone charging a fee? Is it negotiable? Any other thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.
