The lenght of time will depend/vary by pricing, marketing, condition, etc.; therefore consider listing with a broker. As for selling/buying at the same time--it may be possible, for a personalized answer visit with any licensed loan officer; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. If you need additional assistance feel free to contact me directly. ... more

Yjami75,

As in real estate, there is no "typical" fee. Each one prices based on the value they place on themselves. Discounted service may result from discounted dollars.

I don't believe you can; however, this is a great sight to help you get Realtors to come in and interview to work for you.

Let me know when we can set something up...be happy to help out.

Not necessarily. Today people are looking for an open floor plan and if done correctly this could add value!

Thomas Brady answered:
Hi Kevrod, you should get a free CMA from a realtor. The CMA should provide you with some available comps and closed comps as well as expired and under contract. The variety and amount of comps will almosr paint a picture of the market for you so you can see and understand the pricing and where the pricing for your home should be. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions or would like a CMA.
Thank you

Alo webb answered:
The profit margin is higher on a new house and it also sells faster. In New York City (Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn), cost to build a new house is approximately $90 a square foot. A 2000 Sq Ft house cost (Raw Materials and labor only) to build is therefore $180,000. After considering cost of land and other related fees a decent builder total cost should not exceed $250,000. These homes at $400,000 can sell in a week.

It's just math.

If you intend to sell your current home, I suggest you connect with an experienced local Realtor (if you need a good recommendation for one, e-mail me and I send you one) this Realtor will take inventory of your current home, consider all recent improvements and upgrades, and take measurements and then
compare your current home to those recently sold in your area. As the Realtor proceeds to do so, he or she will also take into consideration, for those comparable homes the differences and make adjustments, like for example either reduce the value of your home when and where a comparable property let's say has a 4 car garage and yours has 2, or when the more or less exact home, has a great room addition... after all those adjustments the Realtor will present you with the comparable properties and the adjusted current value of your home, discuss with you the most market friendly and competitive asking price (list price) possible % of negotiations to come up with an app. final sale price and your Realtor should also provide you with an app. net to seller, after you pay all your closing expenses, including title company, recording fees, commissions etc. etc.

And more importantly the Realtor should also assist in preparing your home well, may be a few walls painted in a modern color, or something done to improve the curb appeal, minor repairs, cleaning,
etc. etc. and after that market and advertise your home, take care of showings, open houses,
negotiate on your behalf the best terms and price, and pay attention to every details throughout the
process up to a successful closing.

So connect with an experienced local Realtor....and you will be good to go.
Sincerely yours,

No, FSBO activity is relatively small in this market. The only somewhat success I see with FSBO is through a traditional listng agreement and they are accommodating with showings.

Ron Thomas answered:
The wording is; the Seller has to disclose any material fact which impacts the value of the house.
If the Seller lived in the house, it would be taken for granted that they knew or whitnessed almost everything.
If it came out later, that there was an Inspection, that they had access to, it would be problematic.

Ejna,

This is something Realtors often do, especially for legal cases, estates, divorces, etc.

Check with a Realtor in your area.
