Mack McCoy answered:
I do $500,000 listings routinely using a very simple method - I print out the comparables on paper, and I print my marketing program on paper - including a screen shot of my website - and I sit down at a table with the client and talk to them while they're looking at the pages.

We need to remember the basics of selling. It's not just about sizzle, the sizzle has to belong to the steak. Don't focus on being Mr. or Ms. "Super Tech," instead - use your presentation as a platform for talking to the customer.

All the best,

Anita McEvoy answered:
The acceptance time depends on a lot of factors. The buyer may have to check with the lender to see if they can qualify for a higher loan, the buyer or seller may be out of town and the agent cannot reach them. I would say that under normal conditions 3 days would be acceptable. ... more

Please email me at: and I'll send you a copy of the Arizona Seller's Disclosure Statement. Every state has different laws and rules surrounding disclosure - for instance Arizona laws are very different in some respects from those in California. It's always a good idea to know what information a seller is required to share with a buyer. Our general rule? When in doubt, disclose!

You can do a for sale by owner...but you wouldn't be able to put it on the MLS. I'd be happy to help if you decided to list it.

Tom Sloyan answered:
I would recommend that you not be there. Most buyers feel uncomfortable when the seller is around and might not let the agent know what they like or dislike about the home. This is important for the seller's agent, so they can share with their seller's what buyers are saying about the home. ... more

It is highly unlikely that the buyer will release any money to you from escrow, prior to the closing.

Josh Barnett answered:
As long as the buyer and seller agree in writing and the action is not legal, everything is negotiable. On your next purchase, you should hire a Realtor.

Sorry, don't understand the question completely. What are you as the buyer attempting to accomplish, purchase the house after it was canceled? First step is to talk it over with your agent/broker. ... more

Tina Lam answered:
Sounds like your buyer had cold feet. If the buyer cancelled within the inspection contingency period, then his agent will have to send over a cancellation form to you. Once you sign and send it over, escrow will refund back any deposits the buyer had made and you can sell the home to anybody else. ... more

Around here a bedroom needs a closet (built in or added or with a wardrobe) and a window of adequate size a fireman with a oxygen tank on can get through.

Barbara Hubble answered:
When a listing is "under contract" someone has placed an offer on that property and the seller has accepted that offer. The Seller can still accept back up offers in the event that the current buyer cancels their contract. ... more

Susan Job answered:
I recommend being sure to get an agent with experience. She can help you with pricing your property properly and giving you hints to make the property show better and be more sale-able. Having someone you can trust to give you good advise is very important and then you need to work with your agent. The goal is to get your property sold for the highest price in the shortest period of time. You are paying your agent to help you reach that goal and you need to work together as a team to get it done! ... more

That is correct "Net Proceeds" is the amount you will get at close of escrow.

Sonny Shrivastava answered:

It doesn't mean anything. You should only be concerned with the payoff amount of your mortgage(s) and that the sale proceeds will pay that debt. If not, then you need to do what's called a short sale. A Realtor® can provide you with comparables in your neighborhood to help guide you on a realistic selling price. Based on that price recommendation, if the net proceeds will pay off your mortgage then you are fine. If not, then you are in short sale territory.

I am a top 1% producer at West USA Realty - the #1 brokerage in the valley - and have been recognized by The Phoenix Business Journal for my accomplishments. If you'd like to speak to a top valley agent, give me a call to discuss your needs. You can get top dollar in this market, but only if you have professional representation with professional photos, descriptions, and featured listing status. The quality of our listing photos and presentation are unmatched by most listings under $1 million.

It's a negotiated rate, Mark. And, sometimes there is also a fee that some companies charge.
