Procuring cause/Buyer not working with agent anymore

Answer

I agree that it is an ethical issue.   Whether you did all the work or not, you are not a licensed agent.  I would contact an Attorney on this one.  The Appraisal issue was not the agents fault.  You are probably not obligated to the agent but I would follow the golden rule.  If you no longer want to work with her/him ask the Selling agent to give her a referral fee if you end up buying the home.

Can you help me price my house for sale?

Answer

Call your local bank and ask them for the name of an Appraiser.  Pay for an Appraisal and that is the best way to get a market price.  Objective and independent.  Not an opinion but based on facts.  When I go to a listing appointment and the Seller and I are not in agreement as to where to list a property I volunteer to pay for an appraisal at closing and encourage them to chose an appraiser not recommended by me.  Works everytime.  I list the property at close to the appraised value and am very successful on getting an offer without the home being on the market a long time

Buyer stated incorrect information on Disclosure

Answer

Hi Ryan,So sorry that your transaction is not going well.  It is really important to bend over backwards to get along with all parties in a transaction.  It is very emotional for both buyer and seller.  The seller feels that they are not getting what the home is worth and the buyer may feel they have paid too much.  A Sellers disclosure is not required by law in our state so as Seller does not even have to provide it.  The Seller may just have not know the correct information or made a human error rather than trying to deceive you. An "As Is Sale" is just what it states the buyer has the right to inspect and a stated time on the contract to cancel for any reason.  The Seller may have negotiated on the price because of the "As Is".  Good luck hope it goes better from here.

what are prices for some recently purchased properties?

Answer

43 Closed home sales since May 17,2012.  Average Sale price as shown by our MLS is $884,430.  Skewed by one sale of $4,100,000.  Low sale was $377,000.  These are statistics from our multiple listing system.  you can find a home in the $400++ range depending on what your are looking for.  Our inventory is down substantially from a year ago and our market is doing well.  Harder and harder to find that great "deal"   Give me a call if I can help.  I can put you on an automatic email for any new homes or condos that come on the market.Ann GeeSanibel Island SpecialistJohn Gee & Company Realtors239-850-0979www.johngeerealty.com

if my payoff is 73K abd zillow estimate sale price is 90K why agent will not take my listing

Answer

Not sure why an agent would not take your listing.  Estimate is just that not a guarantee as to what the home will sell for.  Factors are also your market condition of your home and what home will sell for.  Interview a couple of agents and ask them what your home will sell for in today's market.  You should be able to get a professional opinion from a Realtor in your area.

How much does the listing agent get paid

Answer

The listing agent gets paid a commission by his Broker who owns the listing.  Normally a commission is 6% (paid by the Seller) split between the Listing Broker and the Selling Broker.  The agent gets paid some portion of this depending on the arrangement he has with his Broker.  It also may depend on the area your are Selling in but the agent is always paid by his Broker.  In addition to commissions,  costs to sell depending on the area you live in are doc stamps and title insurance and any repairs required on the home.  The buyer would pay for Inspections and his mortgage costs.
