UpNest Top Realtors answered:
The normal commission is usually 6%. But that can vary depending on the location and condition of your home and local real estate market.

Commission rates are always negotiable, but it's not easy to discuss since taking away an agents potential pay is obviously a touchy subject. However, many agents are willing to negotiate, it's just not something they like to advertise.

At UpNest, we will negotiate commission rates at an appropriate level with top local agents. Agents will then compete to earn your listing. When agents compete, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services.

I handled a short sale last year where the ex-wife had signed a quit claim deed. She didn't have to sign any other paperwork until the final closing. I recommend you consult with a real estate attorney as laws vary from state to state. ... more

Our latest stats that from May 1 thru Jul 31, 2010 for Jackson County is 93 days. Not too bad overall. This just proves if you price the home right it will sell!

I am not sure but I think 1% is plenty. On a 300K house, $3K for a few hours work is a lot. How many jobs pay this well?

Adam Bogle answered:
As an Ashland Realtor, I will give you an Ashland answer. Please let it be noted up front that there is some stereotyping, and attempts at humor here, and to not get offended or take me too seriously.

Ashland is the greatest place on Earth, and seller's know it. Cash is only part of what an Ashland seller needs. They also need to know that you will love the house as much as they do. Does the buyer not only have enough money, will they make sure the Feng Shui stays good. That there is still room to do Yoga in the front where the East light comes in in the morning. Don't forget that there needs to be room in the garage for your Prius, Bicylce, and Scooter. You are a master gardener, right? Volunteer regularly at the Shakespeare and Britt Festivals?

Okay, semi-seriously....
Sellers frequently have egos about their house, the price they are asking, and what they perceive as what they have already lost on it because they didn't sell it 3 years ago. Also factors such as motivation (if it is a couple do both people want to sell), how much they may owe, how much they bought it for,

Almost everything in Ashland sells within 95% of the final asking is the mentality here. The sellers come to grips with their price if it is too high slowly...reduce the price....and when it becomes appropriately priced...they take an offer within 95%. Now this may be 80% of their original asking price...but it was on their terms.

I assume because you have made an offer, that you are working with an agent who is representing your needs as a buyers broker. I would ask them their experiences with sellers here in the area. Also they should know the differences between Realtors, and the different styles that local Realtors have. That is one of the benefits of hiring a good local Realtor to represent your needs.

Ultimately though is if your best offer is not good enough at this time for the seller to doesn't matter if it is cash, or a loan.

Paul Garcia answered:
I've been showing property in Ashland to a very knowleagel and qualified buyer. One thing I have noticed is that some properties in Ashland are listed above the average price per s.f for the area. Some have a great view but small sq. footage. Don't be affraid to make an offer using SOLD comps in the area. You will find many homes in Ashland have been on the market for sooooo long they are selling well below the asking price. And if a broker questions your offer show them the SOLD comps and the days on the market. Good Luck. ... more

Bobbie Ross answered:
I would suggest that your agent initiate an addendum that states that the buyer has received a copy of the inspection and is aware of the evidence of termites near the structure AND that buyers accept the property in its present condition and do not require the seller to perform any repairs or treatments.

That should protect you....but be sure to talk with your agent and if necessary, his designated broker or company owner/broker. Each state has its own laws but I have never heard of the representative (agent) of any company having the right to demand a seller to do anything that the seller has not agreed to do in writing,
