Teri & Tom Cranston answered:
Media says prices rose 3%. I am finding pricing to be the same. It all depends on list price, condition and location. However I can tell you that the market has been much more active and the people out looking are indeed buying. Please let me know if you are interested in listing or purchasing a home. I am happy to run comps for you of homes in malta and ballston spa to go over pricing. Thank you.

It should have been submitted promptly, and at the very most, within 24 hours.

The Escrow company will know that.
Your Listing Agent will know that.
Why don't you know that.
We couldn't possibly know that.

You are the buyer or seller here? You pose the question from both angles. Regardless, it's usually in the offer, a by when date for the loan commitment.

Unclear as to how you know there is an offer on your property if the agent hasn't presented it you--generally offers should be presented as they come in--keep in mind that it's not in an agent's best interest not to present offers, we only get paid when the deal closes.... ... more

Anna M Brocco answered:
Commissions are always negotiable between you and your agent, there are no set standards as it would go against Federal Laws. If two agents are involved in the transaction the fee is shared. Therefore if looking to sell, contact and interview in person a few local agents from different realty offices; choose the agent you loke best and who has the most to offer; choose your agent with care, and not by commission alone. ... more

Best thing to do is, research, research, research! Look in your local print advertisements (newspapers, real estate publications) & online websites (,, Active Agents will have quite a few listings, check out how their listings are portrayed (#of photos, description, tours etc). This is the best way to narrow it down. Once you get it down to 3 of the "best" agents, call them & conduct a phone interview. Ask how many active listings they have in your area, how many have they sold in your area this year, what they will do for advertising beyond what you had last time, etc.
Good Luck!

Phil Rotondo answered:
Has any agent showed your property?
Has your agent provided you any feedback?
Ask your agent to let you know the average days on the market....this will give you an indication of approximately how long you will have to wait to close on your property.
If the feedback is good and your home is listed above the average days on the market, you may have to adjust the price to draw attention.

Consider inviting and interviewing in person a few local agents, or as many as needed, from different realty companies, then choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer--ask what marketing strategies will be implemented; what plans will be put in place to coordinate meetings with buyers; what feedback (communication) can you expect and with what frequency; will data be supplied to help establish a fair and marketable asking price; will buyers be pre-screened and required to have mortgage pre-approvals when submitting offers; what other services does the agency offer, if any, etc., choose your agent with care. ... more

Maria Morton answered:
The best time to sell your home is when you have a reason to want to move. How fast a home sells depends upon the condition of the home, the asking price, the terms you are willing to give, how well it is advertised, and local market conditions. Local market conditions are very specific. They can vary from block to block within a town/city. The best way for you to determine what your home will sell for and the expected days on market would be to request a consultation from a local realtor. S/he will have all of the data available for your area as well as intimate experience with the particular homes yours would be in competition with, should you decide to sell. ... more
