are agent fees negotiable

Answer
Yes..keep in mind that agents are independent contractors and can set their fee based on the services you are requiring from them. It's always negotiable and between the seller and gent. So simply ask what they charge and see what you may be able to agree apon. I have been willing to reduce my commission. So just try.

how much is the average cost to list a home?

Answer
The cost will range based on the commission structure and the services you will require to get the home sold. The bulk of the expenses to list a home are taking on by the listing agent. No one gets paid until the home goes to closing. That beings said, the commissions can range from 7% to 3%. All this is based on what you expect your Realtor to do in getting your home sold. These are variables. Nothing is written in stone. Good Luck...

You have to contact the tax accessors office in your region to determine the porcess. You can also find out by going online at the cities website. You might find some links and info there. It's where you need to start. I have had sellers who did in fact fight the figure and win. They started at the tax accessors office to have the homes value re-evaluted. Good Luck!

My wife and I put in an offer below the asking price. Seller said he wouldn't accept below a certain

Answer
If you are not in love with this home, then wait awhile. If it's something you really want, make him another offer. You need to determine what you really want there. I have found sellers that get fixed on a certain price, only to change it after a buyer comes and goes. If you can step back, it might help in bringing them around. It all depends on you and your desires. Good Luck!

Finished Chapter 13, waiting for papers and trying to fix credit to buy house

Answer
The best way to know for sure would be to get with a lender. They are the experts in getting the funds to close. They know better than anyone what VA will and won't allow. Get with a trusted lender. Start with your bank and go from there.

Commission on new construction?

Response
It varies but keep in mind, the builders agent represents the builder. You might not realize it but you do need someone in your corner. Your agent will earn their commission before it is said and done. Builders pay these fees as part of the package and it doesn't cost you no matter what anyone says. I have had more buyers need representation in these transactions than those who didn't. It's better to be safe than sorry. Good Luck!
