How do I find a realtor who will list my home for 5%.

Answer

Well, in some States even higher fees are being negotiated and paid to agents. If you cannot afford to pay any commissions due to your equity, just hire an Help U Sell agent who will assist you in the sale process and pay him a commission on a contingency basis at time of close of transaction. But if you wish to see quick results pay your agent/broker his full commission. A good broker puts enormous time and energy beside marketing cost to sell your home and well worth it.

Can I buy a house in cash baais

Answer

Of course, it is the best way; why would anyone take out a loan when sufficient cash is available for the purchase. That way you can open and close the purchase transaction much faster and get the keys to the home for move in.

How is the earnest money determined? Is 1% of the Sales Price the norm?

Answer

Well, even though it is negotiable I'd recommend no less than a 3% good faith deposit in any case to make sure the buyer is serious and capable. But make sure the agent bringing you an offer has prequalified the buyer and attached a letter from a major lender to the offer who qualified the buyer for the needed loan amount. Any further concerns please contact me anytime. Ben Sepian, Beverly Hills [contact information deleted by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy for posting guidelines]

how you can make sure if the owner is legit..

Answer

Hi Nikki, the easiest way to check ownership is to contact the county tax assessor within which the property is located or call any local title company customer service who would be glad to assist you. It is usually also possible nowadays to check property ownership on the county tax collectors website where the property is located or just call a friendly local real estate agent/broker who could check ownership for you in a few seconds.

When is it a good time to drop the price of your home

Answer

Honestly, had your agent/broker listed the property at the correct list price in a market such as today with low supply and relatively high demand a price drop within 30 days would not be necessary. If you have further questions please feel free to contact me who has priced homes and sold properties for more than 1,800 home owners in my 25 year career including the federal government, institutional as well as private clients such as celebrities, attorneys, doctors, CPAs, and many other professional who chose my services with both local connections to buyers via a grand scale online marketing in addition to international exposure to cash overseas buyers. Please make sure you chose the right agent for the job and stage your home properly to attract the qualified buyers. Best regards! Ben Sepian[contact information deleted by Zillow moderator.

what are lots 7,550 SF selling for in Beverly Hills

Answer

It very much depends on location; up to 3-4 blocks South of Wilshire you probably could sell it for around $1.2M if you have some type structure on it and based on its condition up to $1.5M if the home on it is in reasonably good condition. Above Wilshire we can sell it at a higher price again based on size of structure on the property, age and condition. Here we could get anywhere from $1.8M-$2.2M for the property if you have a nicer house on it in good condition. If you have absolutely no structure on the land, it will obviously have to sell to a cash buyer for less. If you are serious, I'd be happy to do a complimentary evaluation for you. I used to appraise all type of assets for The Prudential Company for years and completed more than 700 in the Beverly Hills area alone. As a Beverly Hills broker, I have evaluated a couple of thousand properties in my 25 year career. You may reach me at [Contact information removed by Zillow moderator.
