Why is it so hard to find a good agent here?

Answer

the best way to hire a listing agent is to get recommendations from people you know and trust.  We are doing the majority of our business by referral.  In this way, you're getting a track record of the agent based on experience with your trusted friend or family member.You also have referral comments on the Zillow site and this is another way to get some background on an agents reputation.Good Luck!Lee BialekRE/MAX Unlimited Northwest

what to do with garage

Answer

It would probably be to your advantage to remove the garage, the potential buyer would have to figure the cost of removal in his offer and buyers will usually over estimate the real cost.

How can I find out the real market value of my home?

Answer

You have several options.  One is to have a REALTOR perform a Comparable Market Analysis, which compares recently sold and active properties similar to the subject property in the same market area.  Another is to have a licensed fee appraiser perform an appraisel.  The appraiser will use only sold proerties, usually 6 months or less from the date of the appraisel.
