We have our house for sale in encino, totally remodeled and price reduced, why wont it sell?

Answer
Without having the home available for all of us to see here I have one suggestion.  Have your agent let the other agents in their office visit your property to give their own opinions.  PS  Don't be home when they arrive.

MSN wants to know: What makes a property languish on the MLS?

Response
I agree it could be a variety of reasons but it all boils down to price, doesn't it?  Property is placed on the MLS not for location, or bad floor plans but for $$$$$.

Can a seller pull out of escrow after all contingencies have been released?

Answer
Not that I know of without the buyer asking for specific performance.  It may be best for you to avoid this issue by sitting down with your realtor or broker for an informative talk.

Do realtors avoid flat fee listings?

Answer
I don't.  My job is to find the buyer the best value meeting all of their criteria.  I want to get my clients into a home.  The commission comes after the sale remember.

how does an MLS listing agent work with no commission

Answer
Ask the agent.  I'm sure he has his reasons.  Then you can determine the level of service you require for your dollar.  Then counter his offer...

Where do I find a list of recent home sales in my area? I would like to see what has been selling .

Answer
Your most reliable information will come from a realtor with local mls access.  What a great way to interview agents too.  Have an agent set you up on an email program sending you sales data as it occurs.  Good luck.
