My realtor has dropped one percentage point off her sales commission of 7% down to 6%. I am countering at $185,000 and am considering accepting if the buyer will come up to that figure.Who is representing the buyer? Your Realtor? If so, she can drop another point -- trust me on this. What are the average days on market for your neighborhood? In my area, expensive homes in good neighborhoods often sit 4 to 5 weeks before an offer comes in. What do the comps for your house show? Have comparable homes sold at $200,000 and, if so, how long did it take them to sell?All those factors, coupled with your motivation for selling, will determine whether $185,000 is acceptable to you.elizabethNational Relocation Realtor
