Stillirise - I don't know the poster (Kimber) personally BUT the person is selling a home in the New York City area and since you live in Norcross, GA, you have no knowledge of the high cost of living and what homeowners need to pay to own a home / stay in their home. Cost of living is much cheaper in GA.

FYI - homeless shelters in NYC are free. They don't charge a fee. Further, renting in the NYC area is cheaper than owning a home. In this area, people do pay 1/2 their net income on housing.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Most likely yes - especially in NYC. First, why do you have a FSBO sign if you signed a contract with a real estate agent to sell your home? Your agent has their own signs to use.

Sounds like a legal matter and you should contact an attorney. We are not attorneys and cannot give you legal advice. Or, you can save time, money and headaches by just having a face to face conversation with your agent and explain why you want to terminate. ... more

Every property even if they look the same and are next door to each other will fetch different prices. Recent home sales in the area, condition, time of year listed, where it is priced, and how and by whom it is marketed all play a roll on the final sales price.

A comparable market analysis will give you a clear look on what people are buying and for how much, and will suggest a sale price. The market will determine the final sales price higher or lower (what someone will actually buy it for).

Any Real Estate Agent with access to the MLS (multiple listings service, which there are different ones for different locations in NYC) can provide you with a CMA. I would personally list it on both the Long Island and Brooklyn MLS, along with newspapers that I have in mind.

Not all Agents are alike, not all real estate companies are alike.

In your case waiting to sell in order to make repairs first MAY hurt you when you are ready to sell. It's a timing issue, it must be listed at the right price and right time for best results. You may find that buyers will pay top dollar "as is", it all depends on your market. Lets say you do make repairs and are ready to sell at the close of summer, the buyer frenzy happened a month or two ago, and now you are left with a smaller pool of potential buyers looking for a good deal...not so good deal for you.

When you work with a solid sales focused real estate company with many agents, using multiple MLS services, advertising in newspapers, providing floor plans, video walk-thru, brochures, professional photography, and a database of thousands of active buyers that will be informed of your property with a click of button, you get the mass number of eyes on your property from day one, which if priced right (CMA or Comparable Market Analysis needed for this) is more likely to create a frenzy of buyer activity within the first week of going live. The highest and best offers are sure to come in.

I can show you the hard facts on paper and provide you a free Comparable Market Analysis of your property along with an action plan from start to finish.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Commission is always negotiable, and the Department of Justice even condones it as good competitive behavior among agents.

The typical commission is close to 6%, but that can really vary depending on the location and price of the home you're wanting to sell. Many agents are willing to be flexible on commission rates, but it's not something they like to advertise. And most clients are not very capable or comfortable negotiating rates.

At UpNest,, we created an online marketplace where home sellers can confidentially submit their homes, and multiple top local agents will compete to obtain your listing. Some agents lower their commission rates to stand out, and every agent that submits a proposal is an experienced agent, so it's not the same as working with a low grade discount brokerage.

Hope that helps!

It appears the question was cut off; regardless, any issues regarding the sale should be directed to the attorney handling the contract.
