There is no set time limit unless you write it in your offer but that amount of time is not the norm, the seller may be waiting to see if a better offer comes in. You can ask your agent to request a response by a certain time and see if that motivates them, then you have to decide if you want to withdraw it or not...best of luck!
SoCal_Engr is correct, 3% is customary but you it can be negotiated to whatever you feel is appropriate based upon your circumstances and the price of the sale.
You are correct, if you are selling by owner you agree to pay a 3% commission of the sales price to an agent's brokerage if he or she procures the buyer. They will represent the buyer and you will represent yourself in the transaction.
Listing updates are the responsibility of the listing agent, not of Zillow. If you contact an agent from Zillow, he or she can assist you with all current listings linked directly to the Multiple Listing Service.
I have been through the process hundreds of time and would be glad to answer any questions you may have, my direct number is 440-897-9609, I'm glad to help.
A good lender can have a pre-approval letter the same day, sometimes your info has to be evaluated by numerous people. If you don't have it by the end of the week maximum, something is wrong. If I can assist you with pre-approval through a lender or help you with your home search. I am local here in Mentor with RE/MAX Traditions.
It is possible but most sellers who have a home listed for sale aren't willing to lease or they would have it listed both ways. I have followed up with many agents who have a listing and yet to find one with a seller willing to accept those terms.
