I hope that you have found a Realtor that you are comfortable with and that you can trust. Congratulations to you on doing the right thing and getting pre-approved before you start your home search. You are ahead of the game :)
George,Your Realtor can change the facts on the site for you. Good luck in selling your home!Sheri
Yes, contact a local Realtor to help you with this. While you have access to what homes sold for and are looking at the tax assessors site for sold values, the square footage, bedrooms, baths, etc. can be very wrong on this site. The Realtor will be able to see if the seller paid closing costs for the buyer and other concessions that might have been given on the sale. You can not find out this on your own. Another option is to hire a licensed appraiser and pay for an appraisal on your home. Good luck!
I really feel that it is totally up to your agent that you are hiring. It is a question that can be asked of him and he will have the option to say no if he does not want to do it. Best of luck to you in your home sale and the purchase of your new home!
I strongly recommend the use of a buyer's agent also. They can provide all of the information that you need and can also negotiate a better deal for you. Good luck on your home purchase!
Your Realtor can find that information out for you. Good luck!
Please see "what is a Zestimate?" It describes the data used for calculation of Zestimates.
In my opinion the agent should be reported after the closing takes place. It is real estate agents like this that make us look bad.
There is no set commission rate. The listing agreement is between the Seller and the Listing company. The terms of that agreement are put in writing at the time the paperwork is signed. The agent that will work for the lowest commission may not be the agent that is the best for you. Interview a few Realtors in your area and let them tell you their marketing plan and what rate they charge. Good luck to you!
melou,You will need to speak with a lender to see what your options are. If you would like for me to send you some lenders names and contact information I would be glad to do so.
