Correct?<br/><div>The box checked indicates the document which Counter Offer #2 seeks to modify?<br/><div>(So, if both boxes are checked, this becomes legally ambiguous?)<br/><div>Which box is best to select for a given situation?&nbsp;<div>Is this determined by how much of the Counter Offer(#1) that Counter Offer #2 accepts? (Minimum rewriting and complexity)<br/><div>If any stipulation of Counter Offer(#1) is rejected, or modified, should Counter Offer #2 reference the original offer and re-list any stipulations of Counter Offer(#1) that are agreeable?<br/><div>The date blank helps identify the specific document of <u>either</u> type checked?<br/><div>Any other guidance?<br/><div>(FYI, I'm not filling out these forms.

We have had 1 open house, 7 private showings, &amp; 3 small price reductions totaling about 2% of our OLP. All price reductions have been under the direction/recommendation of our agent.&nbsp;<br/>We are concerned we are priced to high.&nbsp;She says we are priced right according to her market analysis but we aren't going anywhere. In fact we haven't had a showing for 2 weeks. Our latest price reduction was earlier this week and so far nothing.<br/><br/>&nbsp;She takes over 24 hrs to respond to requests, questions and/ or concerns (doesn't matter if it is phone,text or email). Most recently, she responded a week later to an email my husband wrote to her in regards to our major concerns. Her response was: I apologize, I've been sick &amp; out of town. I'll respond at length to your email when I get to the office this afternoon. The response to our concerns has never happened and that was 3 days ago.We are listed on the big 3 (zillow, trulia &amp; realtor) websites, have our own website &amp; have flyers in front of the house. We also are wondering why none of the agents affiliated with her agency have toured or brought buyers through.<br/><br/>There is also an issue that we have disclosed on our seller's disclosure that involves a neighbor. She says that we should get an written agreement our attorney states she is being over zealous and it is not necessary. She also referred us to a law firm that is affiliated with her significant other but failed to disclose that to us. We figured it out via an internet search. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Is there something she isn't doing? &nbsp;Are we expecting to much from her? &nbsp;<br/><br/>We feel like we are stuck with her &amp; not sure what to do.<br \><br \>12 replies Fri, 26 Sep 2014 21:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/To-Fire-or-not-Fire-out-Agent/560806/ 2014-09-26T21:04:00Z What are some safety tips for selling a home? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-are-some-safety-tips-for-selling-a-home/561480/ <div><strong>Security system &ndash; If you have a security system, it should be monitored and armed, especially when you're away from home. &nbsp;Most systems will allow you to program a temporary code that agents will be able to use based on your instructions.&nbsp;</strong><br/><div><strong>Prescription medications &ndash; remove or secure the drugs before showing the home. &nbsp;&nbsp;</strong><div><strong>Secure valuables &ndash; jewelry, artwork, gaming systems; &nbsp;mail containing personal information like bank and credit card statements, investment reports; &nbsp;wine and liquor can also be a security issue.</strong><div><strong>Remove family photos &ndash;pictures can be distracting to prospective purchasers but the concern at hand is to eliminate photos of a wife, teenage daughter or children that might provide information to a possible pedophile or stalker who could be posing as a buyer.</strong><div><strong>Remove weapons &ndash; the reason to remove guns should be obvious to everyone but a knife block on the kitchen counter can become an opportunity of convenience.</strong></div></div></div></div></div><br \><br \>2 replies Thu, 02 Oct 2014 18:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-are-some-safety-tips-for-selling-a-home/561480/ 2014-10-02T18:47:00Z How do you delete pictures? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-you-delete-pictures/561659/ I purchased this home and rehabbed it and so want to feature the improvements, not the horrible "before" pictures.<br \><br \>1 reply Sat, 04 Oct 2014 13:35:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-you-delete-pictures/561659/ 2014-10-04T13:35:00Z if you are a FSBO & paid to use the MSL option in selling their home, how was the experien http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/if-you-are-a-FSBO-paid-to-use-the-MSL-option-in-selling-their-home-how-was-the-experien/552014/ 2 replies Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/if-you-are-a-FSBO-paid-to-use-the-MSL-option-in-selling-their-home-how-was-the-experien/552014/ 2014-07-29T15:09:00Z How to sell the home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-to-sell-the-home/555806/ How to go about selling home on the internet.
