I have met with one of the top agencies in my area and have listed some questions below.<br/>Questions:<br/>1.)&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Agent pitched a 7% commission and went down to the traditional 6% after I refused the 7%. Is this a red flag? Why would an agent charge 7% when 6% is the standard?<br/>2.)&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Agent is trying to charge for what they call "extras". An example is they want me to get a "nicer sign" for the front yard for a $50 fee. They are also trying to charge $150 to generate and include floor plan images with the listing. They are also trying to charge several hundred dollars extra for a video tour. Is it normal for agents to charge a la cart like this? I feel like it should be a 6% flat fee and they should include everything needed to sell the property?<br/>3.)&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Agent has provided a CMA using comparables without seeing the house in person. Agent stated she could come and look at the house if I wanted advice on anything. The pricing sheet also shows a $150 fee for an on-site consultation.<br/>What do you all think about all this? Should I run away? This agency does a ton of business in the area and would provide great exposure but I do not like the pricing structure and nickel and dime feeling I am getting. I have never sold a house before so I don't know what is normal.<br/>Any advice is appreciated.<br \><br \>24 replies Tue, 20 Jan 2015 21:31:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-it-normal-for-an-agent-to-charge-extra-fees-for-specific-services/572862/ 2015-01-20T21:31:00Z home value http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/home-value/523267/ 3 replies Sat, 04 Jan 2014 12:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/home-value/523267/ 2014-01-04T12:24:00Z How do I sell my house that is in a flood zone? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-sell-my-house-that-is-in-a-flood-zone/555452/ My house has been on the market for 88 days. We are averaging 1 showing per week. But no offers as of yet. All the feed back we are getting is that they like the house but don't want to be in the flood zone. We are priced competitively. Actually a bit lower than some houses and our house is in better condition and for the most part all of the homes are in the flood zone. Is there anything we can do to bring serious buyers who are willing to buy in a flood zone?<br \><br \>6 replies Tue, 19 Aug 2014 16:28:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-sell-my-house-that-is-in-a-flood-zone/555452/ 2014-08-19T16:28:00Z You have many things wrong on my home...5516 Mountain Village Dr.,Roanoke Your phone number is____ http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/You-have-many-things-wrong-on-my-home-5516-Mountain-Village-Dr-Roanoke-Your-phone-number-is/550205/ My home is incorrectly represented.&nbsp; I paid $206,000 for it and it has a finished basement.&nbsp; The square footage is over 2,400.&nbsp; Not sure what else is incorrect but how can you sell a home with this poor representation?&nbsp; Please call me at 5409158562&nbsp;&nbsp; Thanks and have a great day!<br \><br \>1 reply Fri, 18 Jul 2014 18:14:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/You-have-many-things-wrong-on-my-home-5516-Mountain-Village-Dr-Roanoke-Your-phone-number-is/550205/ 2014-07-18T18:14:00Z What is my condo worth today, right now on the market http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-my-condo-worth-today-right-now-on-the-market/497506/ 3166 sq feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 car garage attached, finished basement, and patio<br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 17 Jun 2013 13:52:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-my-condo-worth-today-right-now-on-the-market/497506/ 2013-06-17T13:52:00Z top selling realtors in Roanoke, Vinton VA http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/top-selling-realtors-in-Roanoke-Vinton-VA/515129/ looking for a top selling realtor to sell my home with a price that will move it.

The listing agent was not clear in advising that a LEAD paint home will cost us more money if the company that removes the LEAD paint for the <strong><u>HUD</u></strong> sale is over $4000. Oh yea ...Before I knew this - they had me sign a lead-based paint disclosure addendum that stated" seller has NO record or reports pertaining to LEAD based paint and/or lead based paint hazards". What a crock. They should have been up front about it.&nbsp;This house has been sitting forever - like they did not know?

I have repeatedly ask the agent to remove her contact information from my listing on Zillow, but it has not been done although the home is no longer listed on the MLS. While I had the listing originally, her contact information over-rode my contact information when she had additional photos uploaded to Zillow.&nbsp; She says the videographer&nbsp; put the information on Zillow and she cannot get him to remove it.
