Alex Pereira and Secure Realty answered:
Thats a question I would recommend you take up with the building department in your city since it involves contractor codes. Some places may allow you to grandfather yourself in since you live there but the moment you try to sell they may make you bring it up to current code. A legal in law is one you know the city has legally passed. If you are unsure and deliver the wrong information you could be taken for damages by the new owner if they choose to process litigation against you. Better safe than sorry. ... more

Michael Lefebvre answered:
Haven't looked at your listing yet (I will), but my first question is how did you arrive at your listing price? How many people are showing the home? If after three months you are consistently showing the home, but receiving no offers, you need to look closer at the price. If no one is showing the home, you need to look at the marketing. Being on MLS is a good choice (better than the Boston Globe ads IMHO). Post a free ad on Craigslist. How about posting here on Trulia? 2% is not totally out of whack for a commission rate (2.5% probably more common), so non-lazy, commission hunting Realtors should not avoid your listing because of that. I will take a look at the listing and feel free to contact me at the address below if you want some additional insight to what you might want to try.

Good Luck!
