In my personal opinion this sounds like a scam. Further more, I have no idea what code they would be looking for.

Ideally, buyer and seller should be present. I mostly use PDFfiller to electronically send to sign my forms. Here is a link to a blank Purchase and Sale Agreement form that you can fill out and send to sign just in case you need it ... more

As in life, Real Estate Sales are all subject to negotiation. As long as his/her Realtor is presenting the offer and sales agreement i don't see anything ethically wrong at all.

Until both the Buyer and Seller sign the Sales agreement, it's not a contract. I would question whether the terms of the contract were agreeable to all parties if you are considering showing it after an offer has been accepted. Good luck! ... more

As stated below it is against anti trust laws to discuss in an open forum commissions. If you are moving here from California I would suggest going through a trusted Realtor in your area for a good referral to an agent that can help you in Rhode Island to discuss further. If you are buying there is no fee, it is a transactional cost for the seller. Hope this helps

Yes, it is a 35% reduction of your assessment/tax obligation.

This comment was received from the lincoln town tax accessor. Essentiallly, take your property assessment and multiply by 65% and that is your tax for a owner occupied resident of Lincon. Should you have any other question about home buying in lincoln or the surrounding area, call me at 401-829-0318.

Hi Maggie!

I am a licensed Realtor here in RI. As mentioned, we have ways of filtering out homes that meet your criteria. But we don't go out to all of these homes to see them first. I understand that buying a home is time consuming and I would do anything possible to ensure your time is not wasted. Many listing agents put multiple pictures of the homes in MLS so that we can get a better picture and we can call the listing agent to get more about the home before proceeding to make an appointment.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for help in your home search. We can talk more about what you want from your real estate agent.

Kindest Regards,

Laura Lass

Good Afternoon Maggie,

As a local Realtor I would say that you should meet with a few local agents and get a feel for how we can help you. In my opinion you can only be sure that someone has your best interest in mind after meeting them and confirming for yourself that they are working for you and you trust them with your biggest financial decision.

I would be more than happy to sit down and discuss the home buying process that I use with all of my buyer clients to see if we could be a match.

Happy Hunting,
