Answer

Woow.  In my epxerience I would ask for a list of all showings and the feedback.  I would start pushing my agent hard....what is the marketing plan?...heir professional opinion why isn't it selling?  what would you do differently?  If I renew the listing contract what would you do differently (indirectly saying you may not be renewing, light a fire)  In the meantime I would look for agents who have sold homes in your area and ask them to give you a marketing plan along with a suggested list price and an epxlanation as to why that price. This will hlep you decide if you want to leave your agent what other agents have to offer.......

what questions should I ask realtors about selling my house?

Answer

There opinion of how your home shows..what would they recommend you change bly improve upon prior to listing your home.  Comparables for the area.  Marketing strategy.....when do they expect to get offers, how many days after listing or how many showings.  Most important one how do you feel about working with this person.  A real estate transaction has highs and lows, is this the person you want to work with if the going its tough?  Best of luck

How do I know if my Realtor is doing a good job?

Answer

I would suggest calling a meeting so you can all sit in the same room face to face and discuss the marketing progress.  If I were in this agents shoes I would appreciate the time to answer your questions and provide data.  If after the meeting you still don't feel confident or have a n acceptable plan than I would suggest talking to other agents to get their input ....Give your agent a chance...you chose this person for a reason...best of luck

listing at well below comps

Answer

In my experience, I would only listing below comps if I expected a bidding war.  you must be in a sellers market to do this an d it is quite risking.  What if you don't get a bidding war and you end up with an offer at your listing price?  It is easier to lower a price than it is to increase the price....best of luck

Do Realtors do prelisting assessments?

Answer

what about hiring an inspector and having the home pre-inspected? Sewer, general home inspections and mold if you are in a mold state and radon test if you are in such an area. Call your preferred agent to get a list of inspectors....Best of luck, sorry to hear your soon to be x is being difficult.

Can we take action against a mortgage broker that wasn't honest?

Answer

Sorry to hear of your experience.......if it were me I would have your agent call the lender to work out an arrangement so your property will close quickly. Your agent after speaking with the lender should be abale at that time to give you guidance. In the meantime, have you asked about a bridge loan to purchase your new home? FYI the earnest money should have gone hard so I would push to have it released to you......
