Hi Mom, (sorry I could not resist)
wanted to address this question that with todays technology your agent has access to views, in fact big brother really is watching as in my own office we not only know views but have access to much more information.

Aside from that you should be looking at the amount of physical showings that are coming in and if you are receiving offers..... these numbers reflect just how well the property is priced.

Hope this helps you and other members in the future!

Is it OK?
I don't know. It depends on the results and outcomes you expect.
Would you like the quickest possible sale at the highest price?
Is your game plan to wait for 'the' buyer who will fall in love with your homes personality and be thus empowered to ignore a barking dog, the residual dog hair, embedded parafin, and any surprises lurking in the back yard?

The correct answer really depends on your expecation...........AND.........who you intend to hold ACCOUNTABLE.

Best of success in selling your home.

Sit down with the agent and ask them where they are going to advertise. It is not the company who pays for the advertising, but the individual agent. The more they spend, the more people see your home. Most people start their search for a new home online nowadays. If all the agent is telling you that they are doing is a small ad in a local paper, choose another agent. You need to hear from them where they are advertising online and what else they are doing to bring in clients. ... more

Commissions are negotiable. You are a FSBO and therefore, I assume you have all the pertinent information and forms you need to fully negotiate this transaction and protect yourself. If that is the case then to the buyers agent, you can offer the costomary 2.5%-3.0% commission rate. On the other hand if you expect the buyer's to do some of the work for you, then you should pay them a little more.

If you are concerned about doing things right, then go out and get your own representation (agent or attorney) and pay them the fee. While ethically we are bound to represent both sides fairly in a dual agency, there could be tough negotiating points, in which case you would get better representation when you have an agent representing only your interest.

Best of luck to you.

It should be noted that the credit crisis is impacting jumbo loans for over $417k in particular. So this will have an impact on homes in higher price ranges generally. Before the crisis, SF homes in that area were not moving so quickly. So the credit crunch may well impact prices in the area. However, I do not have a crystal ball. With interest rates being cut 50 basis points and the system being flooded with liquidity, who knows what lies ahead. ... more
