It is unfortunate that some realtors, do not understand that their job is to advertise the home to get it sold. I hope you get it sold.....
Having an open house depends on the home. If the home does not show well than I would not suggest an open house. Yet I have had buyers walk in on an open house and put an offer in that day. So yes the impossible can happen. Some realtors may not feel comfortable doing them due to safety issues. You never know who could walk in and threaten or hurt the realtor. So if thry are unwilling do not be surprised. Good luck I hope it sells soon!!
Depends on your situation. You should have someone to be your representation. As a buyer you need someone to be on your side and NO you do not pay for this. As a seller you may need someone to advertise, put the home on the MLS, and work for you by negotiating with buyers and buyers agents. It is up to you what you need. Good Luck
Well they implimented this law due to a lawsuit in OKC I think. It has sure been a damper, trying to explain to people that I can't tell you what the square footage is. No one understands it and blames it on "Oklahoma" which is unfortunate for our state. FUN FUN FUN!!!
I asked the same question Kelly, the system has changed so now we just wait and they will upload. UGH!!
Ok, I have to say something about this. Yes I know there are people whom feel they do not need an agent, I get that. Some people can do the entire process themselves getting the paperwork done, the negotiations, the inspections and all. I get that. The one thing missing is the help. My clients have (used) me not in a bad way, to get through the process. They may need reassurance, some one to help them destress or guidance, an extra pair of eyes during the walk through, a babysitter during inspections or closings, a friend that will tell them that it is ultimatley their decision. We bond during this process, we talk daily for at least 30-60 days. As far as sellers they may not have time to deal with showings, advertising, and such, it can be stressful. Yes this is how I support my family, but my morals and ethics are more important than a sale. Most of my past clients are friends, I know their kids, their hobbies, and I am happy for them. So yes you are right that you can do it on your own, but I hope that I am helping clients and that they love their new homes that is better than the commission split... Ok off my soapbox :)
I understand your response that we are supposed to know when is the perfect time to buy. Yet it is up to you and your comfort level of when you are ready to buy. Honestly we can not predict the future, we can hope that the stats that we get are accurate, but really is it the right time for you?? I am sorry your past transaction did not work out well I understand the issue with everyone not having the numbers straight. We do work on commission that is why we work for you. If you do not feel ready don't buy, my job is to help you along the way not to make you buy the most expensive house so I can get more money, that's not ethical!!!!
I used to be able to list a home for free, than it was $9.99 now it is $39.99 what is going on? When did this change???
Actually this is sort of midtown, which is the hip place to live for the younger proffessionals...
It is for sale right now through the MLS the price is $77,900. I hope that helps.
