Closed a deal today with an awesome agent who was professional, courteous and a pleasure to work with. I am sorry to say that this is an anomaly in my market. He was an out of area agent and if he was in my area I'd try to recruit him. Awesome co-broke.
Logged onto Trulia to adjust my local ads and find that they won't let me make my own choices alone now. I have to call the 800# to talk to a consultant to change my ad locations. Really? #FAIL. This backfired on you T. Now I am pissed and will be calling that 800# tomorrow, to re-allocate the money I spend on something where I don't have to talk to a salesperson to change my settings.
I have sold houses as low as $4000, and has high as over a mil. Each one is different. But no in my experience the price of the home is in no direct correlation to the commission price. DIsconnect. I've had high end homes go smooth, very little "work" and low houses take years to sell.
They are common in my area, but honestly I think most people go for the free lunch and to socialize. I don't see the benefit to the home seller. Any broker/agent worth their salt (I now sound like my father) knows of all the new inventory on the market and if a property might fit their clients' needs, they will preview them on their own. All that being said, if I see one advertised with a particular good local caterer, I've been known to do the BS dance in exchange for a good meal. I do not hold them for my listings.
