YES! You need an advocate for you. Your Realtor friend is representing her buyer, not you. So, you deserve representation. Your listing agent can negotiate for you and get you top dollar for your home. Always choose a Realtor when trying to buy or sell a home.... more
The first thing you should do is call the company of that agent and ask to speak to his/her broker in charge. So many issues can be resolved satisfactorily that way. If your Realtor IS the company, than typically going to the local or state real estate commission. Just make sure you have your facts straight and in writing ready to go.... more
Hang in there...Buyers are generally not in a big hurry in this market. The other agent was right when she said there is no norm. I have had people come to listings 4 times with no offer produced. Don't give up hope, but don't hold your breath either.
It sounds like a few phone calls need to be made.
1) Title company - tell them of their mistakes and ask for their help
2) Your agent - ask him/her to track some of the info down. Have them call the HMS rep for the area and explain the double payment, etc.
3) Start dailing the phone and call the places where you made the double payments. You should have examined the HUD statement a little closer before signing it (however, in your defense, often the title company throws it at you the day of closing and you don't have time to cross examine the nickel and dime items).
Remember, you'll catch more bees with honey and try to catch these people at the first to mid month (the end of the month is most hectic to ask for corrections to be made)... more
I'd suggest you become very familiar with your competition. In this market, you need to be aggressive. If youâ€™re getting showings, positive feedback, and no offers, itâ€™s probably time to review your price and make a necessary adjustment. Also, what is your time frame for moving? If you want to move soon, then you might want to have your price adjusted. There is no magic number for the â€˜rightâ€™ time to reduce your price. Every situation is different. Based on the information youâ€™ve provided, a price reduction might be your best solution.... more
Good Heavens---I hope you're not paying this agent anything! If you have this many questions and really need to sell your condo, please, please hire a full time professional who can guide you from start to finish. With the number of units Drees sold of your floor plan there has to be plenty of comparable sales to choose from--recent sales that show what your property should sell for. Incentives DO NOT sell homes. You're trying to save money on a full time agent yet you're talking about giving it away in a sales concession/incentive.
My clients receive the best sale to list price ratios--better than their competition because we study the market and work the market we're in. If you want the help, I'm an email away.
