All commissions are negotiated.
Discussing them is illegal for us; it smacks of collusion and we can get our hands slapped.

But, what do you care; Buyers don't pay any commission anyway!
So it is really noneya!

The rental market was affected in a positive way in that displaced homeowners needed to rent until their homes could be repaired or rebuilt. There was a slight pause everywhere as the entire north east got the electricity turned back on and so forth but after that it was pretty much business as usual. ... more

It is nice to expose and let people know abouot scams like this. They are running rampant. You should also report the scam by flagging the ad where you see it. Renters need to know if it looks to good to be true it usually is. Houses do not rent half price becuase they like you. Also never rent a home sight unseen and do not wire money overseas. ... more

Julie Barnett answered:
Brenda, someone would really need a little more information than that to make an informed answer to your question. I'm a bit confused about when and why the buyer lied about losing his job and whose home was affected by Sandy. I am not a lawyer and I do not have very much information, but I will say that if the buyer had an accepted offer and it had already been signed by the seller, then usually the only reasons the buyer could pull out of a contract would be if the contractual agreement entered into with the seller included the exact reason that he pulled out of it, otherwise, the buyer would be liable for breach of contract and, thus, open to be sued for the damages the seller incurred from the buyer pulling out.

A preponderance of real estate contracts have provisions where the buyer can break the contract if the inspection comes back with major problems, or because they can't sell their existing home, there can be any number of reasons, but in general, the contingency for the breaking of the contract on either side, buyer or seller, should be written into the purchase agreement at the time the buyer is making the offer prior to the seller accepting the offer.

Any offer is only valid and accepted at the time it is actually signed, and not before it is signed. So verbal agreements are not enforceable in a court of law.

I have to agree with you on that! If something is too good to be true, it usually is. You can
scroll down to the bottom and put your info in contact agent box, but this probably is a scam! ... more

Usually, property insurers won't issue insurance for incomplete buildings. If you're a builder, you'll have to get the appropriate umbrella and liability insurance. If you're waiting for a spec home to be completed, let the builder worry about the insurance. ... more
