Each brokerage will charge differently. There is no standard (even saying that there is an average is a violation of Sherman Anti-Trust). Best avenue is to interview several brokers to discuss market value, marketing plans, pictures etc & choose the agent you feel most comfortable with.

I would be happy to discuss details with you.

Hi Bing,

You can put in a clause ( in an addendum) that the buyer will make up the difference between the purchase price and the appraisal value up to a certain amount. Usually this is between 5 and 10 % of the value of the home. You will then get only serious qualified buyers that really want the home. This addendum is put in as part of the disclosures.

With appraisals, there's very little standardization. That's one of the main problems with the profession. They are given guidelines to use, but there's so much variation in interpretation between good and bad appraisers that you can get 10-30% price differences between appraisals.

Then again, a lender's appraiser is typically suggested by the lender to appraise a property for the lowest possible value to give the lender the highest level of security. For example, lending you 80% of $250K is very different from 80% of $350K on the same house.

without viewing the home, a value assessment is only a range. However, based upond the above, I feel very confident that your goals could be exceeded. We currently have the lowest inventory of homes that I have ever seen in RC! This is a great time to sell and capitilze on that opportunity.

Please feel free to visit our website at for more information or feel free to email me directly at

Have a great day!

I have never heard of a bank foreclosing on a technical default before. Loans are written based on the borrowers intentions. Over time home owner's situations change and loans are sold to other banks. Servicing deptartments are concerned about performing loans.

If your home is in the Los Angeles area and you decide to rent your home, please contact me. I would be happy to help you find a renter and manage the property if you want. I currently manage other units.

Hi there,
Appraisers typically look back 3 to 6 months for the comparable "solds" in the same subdivision and will compare 1-stories with other 1-stories and 2-stories with other 2-stories of similar square footage. They'll also take into consideration size of lot, location of lot (does it back to commercial or main street, etc.) and what condition the property is in, including updates.

Without knowing any of these things about your home, it would be difficult to say. However, a quick market analysis of your subdivision for past six months shows that homes have sold pretty quickly (within a couple months) at between $116.73psf and $213.80psf.

Current homes on the market are priced between $189.10psf and $308.61psf. Hope this helps! Feel free to contact me for further details. Thanks!

Your brothers friend was right. With a living trust everything is very simple. Have your sister list the home and handle the paperwork. Escrow will handle the transfer/sale from trust in escrow. The proceeds should go to your moms trust and the money divided there. Sorry for your loss. If you need an agent to sell the home give me a call.

To be honest the pool is a problem because they don't appraise well any more. Other than they there is way too little info given. Have a local agent come over and give you their opinion. ... more

This is a decent area of Modesto. It's close to Johansen high school and an easy drive to local employers such as Gallo Winery. It is across town from freeway access so if you are commuting for work, it might not be the best option. ... more

Geoff Ommen answered:
Many of the questions you should be asking your candidates have to do with how they will work with you. Realtors need to be proficient at marketing, negotiating and communicating. Some are much more technologically saavy than others. Just like with any service provider, determine in advance what is important to you. Ask the appropriate questions to get the responses you are looking for. Realtors can cover large geographic areas and multiple units. Someone who is stretched too thin may not be a good fit either.

Some sellers will accept a home sale contingency, but most will not. It completely depends on the situation and how the offer is presented to the seller. If your agent just sends a contract, it has little chance of sticking. If they do their due dilligence and present a good case for the seller as well as the market for your home, you have a better shot.

Tina Lam answered:
I've sold plenty of homes in the areas you've mentioned. I'm also working with many buyers who are competing to win a home.

I can certainly tell you when you are overpaying when the bids aren't supported by current demand. However, if you're concerned about overpaying just because prices are going up, then you shouldn't be buying in this market.

If you aren't looking to compete purely on price, then there are other ways to go about it. But the approach is not for everyone.

Unless you are listed with an agent, you cannot post the home on trulia.
If you are trying to sell "by owner", you will have to find other sources to advertise

Tammy Hayes answered:
I ran a search for sold homes in the past 6 months in Avondale with sq footage of 2700 to 2900 under air. The results vary quite a bit for per sq ft selling price. It ranges from $175.00 to $320.00. It depends what other amenities the home may have - how many bedrooms, baths, garage, pool, lanai, and other extra features. I would be happy to prepare a free comparative market analysis for you if you could send me the address of the home and your contact information.

Christine Groves answered:
Unfortunately there is no per square foot basis to build. Cost is determined by builder via market value and is dependant upon location, amenitites, upgrades, lot size, garage, basement finishes, etc. Developments and subdivisions tend to offer more incentives and choices versus building on a particular lot.

What area and features are you looking for?

The best time to sell is when you need to, and are ready to sell. Time on the market does vary by exact location, pricing, size, condition, etc., therefore consider contacting a few local agents from different realty companies and ask for a cma, comparative market analysis; review the data, ask opinions and go from there.... ... more
