UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi, Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area. We started UpNest ( to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to ""comparison shop"" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck!

You can also find out the average commission rate for your area here:

It would be a giant waste of time and money to remove them. They aren't hurting anyone. You aren't "remediating" them by covering them up though. You're just encapsulating them which is the most commonly suggested method for dealing with them.

Whether you even need to do that depends on your local market. In the areas where I'm looking, it's downright normal to find these in the basement. Not only am I not bothered, I actually like them. Those floors often come in really cool colors that you just can't replicate with modern materials.

So? I guess you better follow your closing timeline exactly and close as per your existing agreement.

1 delay or screw-up from your lender and you won't have an agreement anymore. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
No! Some agents are strictly listing agents, some are strictly buyer's agents and some do both. That's the whole point of having different agency relationships. Many many years ago there were only listing agents. If you wanted to buy a house, you contacted the listing agent of each house you wanted to see. (this was called "Dual Agency"). Listing agent basically worked with seller and buyer but really didn't have any loyalty to the buyer. This was extremely unethical since the listing agent was working for the seller, not the buyer. Now we have buyer's agents who represent the buyer and take them to view listings of other agents. If the house fits the buyer's criteria, why would I NOT show it to them? It would be UNETHICAL for me not to!

If you're selling and you're concerned about listing with an agent who only lists homes, you shouldn't worry. Your home is being seen my thousands of other agents and their buyers. If you're not getting showings, then there's some other factor involved. Showing condition? Photos? Price?
