Everything is negotiable. It is customary for sellers to pay County Transfer Tax and provide a Natural Hazards Report. There is no city transfer tax in Union City. As a buyers agent, I usually ask the seller to provide a standard 1 yr home warranty. When it comes to HOAs, I usually ask the seller to pay the doc prep fees and have the buyer pay for transfer fees.

Get in touch with your bank and talk to them. You have options, such as a loan mod or short sale. Both are not automatic, as home buyers must qualify for both. For example: there must be a hardship. Do your homework ahead of time and find out if a short sale is your best option. Find out your options as well as the pros and cons of each. This will help prevent you from wasting your time and energy. To answer your question, when a bank approves a short sale they are the ones who determine the commissions paid to both the buying and selling agents and the ones taking the short, including the cost to sell the property. Any Realtor who is knowledgeable about short sales and is willing to take the listing can list it. Many of the local Realtors posting on this site are well known within the industry and very credible. Contacting one of them would be a good place to start.

Dzman, I ran a search and came up with

519,000 high 189,900 low 335,318 average 325,000 median for list prices in the last 4 months.

As for sold prices 501,000 high 155,000 low 349,900 average and 346,250 median.

This info came from 72 homes sold between 06/01/2009 and 09/31/2009 the homes were 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes. If you want a closer average I need to know how many bedrooms and what S. F. you would like to know about....Dawn

You should have the agent who is representing you answer this question because it has to do with agency relationship and getting responses from other agents might interfere with that agency relationship and put everyone at risk as to errors and omissions insurance.

One thing is for sure -- if it's a fact that could influence the sale or the transaction (aka material fact), it must be disclosed. Just wording it might be tricky. Check with your agent.
