Not much you can do. What does your REALTOR say?? If you have a backup offer in place, you could refuse to extend the closing to current buyers, and then let the new buyers start from the beginning. And then go through approval AGAIN. Or you can just be patient and accommodate these buyers. Think about it. What if you were in their shoes? Does it make sense to try and cooperate with these buyers or move on and start from scratch again?? ... more

List it with an agent. When the listing hits the MLS, it will show on here.

As many have mentioned, 6% is the standard for most of America (split between buyer and seller agent). However in many high price markets, agents can stand to cut commission rates since the amount of money they make on a high priced home will be substantial.

Many agents are in fact willing to lower their rates, but don't like to advertise or make it publicly known. Most normal consumers don't know how to negotiate these rates, so meeting in person to negotiate rates can be very intimidating and most likely avoided.

We created a private online marketplace where reputable agents can compete for a listing from sellers that remain anonymous at Since agents compete, they bring out their best services and rates to sell your home for the best price.

fixer-upper refers to a property which needs some work. Often used as an understatement for the immense work needed.

Good luck

It is simple, ask your agent to do that for you. Most sites you search when loking at homes take the information from your local MLS. There are many your agent can add additional information to but square footage is a must.

Good luck,

I think that it is pretty bogus - not a real driver of consumer demand, unless you have an ignorant consumer who may or may not have flimsy finances, and may or may not have a confidence in their employability...regardless, I think that only an ignorant consumer would agree to the extra load on the sales price. ... more

Good question, and of course it all depends.

Are you talking "big box" to describe "big box" retailers, or did you mean something else?

I would answer yes, they are "good" in general, but their collateral damages of traffic increases and crime attraction could outweigh the "good."

It all depends.

Also, if the retailer is incongruent with some of the core demographics of the area, and does not attract "neighbors," only more car traffic from non-neighbors, then the stigma of being a fish out of water can outweigh some of the "good" too.

The only advantage I can think of is when you have an active person who likes jogging/walking and doesn't mind the surface. It can be peaceful and quiet when used at the right time of day. Very little traffic to worry about, so it can be nice. ... more

Cleaning. Make the kitchen sparkle, and make the bath so clean that a kid could drop his gum and put it back in his mouth without you flinching. Regrouting, replacing worn and discolored vinyl, cheap and makes a big difference.

Remodeling for resale is usually a pretty stupid thing to do. No matter what you upgrade, it just pushes some other neglected part of the home up the list. And, in plain language, most homeowners don't have the skills or the taste to undertake a remodel for the resale market.

$1000 bucks isn't much, but if you can make that home livable on the inside, you're in good shape.
