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.

A lot more information than you currently are showing.

1. Name (everyone likes to know who they are working with)
2. Address, (everyone likes to know what they are selling)
3. Description of the property
4. Motivation
5. Price you hope to gain (don't necessarily need to share that publicly, but it's nice for an agent to know if their sellers are realistic)
6. Your expectations of your agent

Knowing these things can save a lot of heartache on both sides down the road. Below find some interesting tips on pricing and selling your home, I'm available for any questions.

I think you should list now. Prices have risen and buyers are extremely serious this year as they have watched our inventory go down and our prices go up. We also have lots of cash buyers right now as well.

Interview some more real estate agents to find the one you are most comfortable working with. I would be more than happy to run a cma and meet with you to discuss your real estate goals.

Unless a mobile home is on owned property we cannot sell it per Florida law. You will have to speak with whatever sales office is in your community.

Danielle Sharp answered:
Market America is a local real estate company that does happen to list foreclosed homes. I'm not sure who told you they're "pirating" listings or what proof they have. Many of us have websites that share data from the MLS that includes foreclosures, short sales and equity (owner) sales.

This is a very serious allegation for someone to accuse a company of pirating listings from the MLS. One real estate office did not create a foreclosure nightmare for anyone - it was a combination of many things that created the current economy and housing market.

I would have your agent explain......something does not seem right. We have a methodical approach to our marketing and know where our properties are being marketed.

I have found that many buyers will pay more for a home that is in great shape, and can close within a month of so. Now a foreclosure in great condition might actually be more competitive with you because they close quickly. ... more

Hello Kathy,

Sorry to hear about the problems that you are having. Your ability to fire your realtor will depend on how your listing agreement was filled out. All of ours offer you the chance to leave anytime you like if you feel that we are not living up to your expecations, however, not all realtors offer you that some protection. If your house is in the condition that you say it is, there is no way that you should price your home to compare with the foreclosure and short sales that are selling out there. Once you get a contract on the home, the appraiser will understand the benefits of your home and appraise it that way. You are correct as well, the whole Daniels Corridor area has been doing wonderful as far as sales go. If you would like to talk a little more about what price your home should bring, please feel free to give me a call: 239-246-3004 or shoot me an email: jrmartin.mig@gmail.com so I can get some more information from you. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

There is no average. Each agent charges their own amount which includes varying degrees of service. Anyone that says otherwise is in violation of the Sherman Anti-trust Act

Carlos Herrera answered:
At a time when your dollar seemed to go a lot further with renovations and repairs I think it was fair to say that there was a lot being done to have that house looking sharp for a sale...These days...not so much. If you are referring to home owners, I think they are doing as little as possible assuming that it will not have a big effect these days on price and that they will be "lowballed" anyway.

This is where we come in and can make a real difference in educating our sellers. Showing them what still makes a difference when selling, how NOT making some changes will affect their sale and the true power of staging.

Great question...I think it's something we ALL need to consider whether selling, being an agent or even buying.

See if you the buyer will negotiate at all and contribute, maybe the agents will help out. First talk to an attorney though to determine what your legal obligations will be in either scenario.

Good luck.

Are you wanting to load a listing as "For Sale By Owner" or are you looking to list with a Realtor??? Realtor fees are negotiable and can not be discussed in an open forum.

Please feel free to email me or call me with any questions you may have.

Natalia Hunter answered:
Hi there, sorry to hear about your situation, but you are not alone. Many homeowners in our area are in the same position. To tell you the truth, you have to decide the best option for yourself. I would recommend calling your bank first to see if you would qualify for the loan Modification (which has not been very successful with other homeowners), depending on your situation you may have an option of doing a short sale, which is much better when just walking away. To help you, I would like to talk to you in person, since I have helped people like yourself before. Please call me 239-344-6462
Thank you and good luck!
