There certainly are a lot of things to consider whenever you’re selling a house. A fee agreement that does not clearly specify that VA is to pay the agent or attorney out of past‑due benefits or that specifies a fee greater than 20 percent of past‑due benefits awarded by VA shall be considered to be an agreement in which the agent or attorney is responsible for collecting any fees for representation from the claimant without assistance from VA.agent fees

The NZ & Australia service is in my judgement a very high touch service, certainly as compared to the UK which I do have experience of. Online solutions such as Purple Bricks would struggle in NZ as they are likely to do in Australia due to the lack of real incentive for ‘agents’ and the legal liability any legal operation needs to manage in representing a seller.

If your property has been on the market for months with very few viewers, you may be happy to accept less than the valuation price just to be rid of it and move on. However, if several offers come in during the first two weeks of the sale period, you would be well advised to stick to the asking price.agent fees

I suspect that UK based buyers would look in horror if such a suggestion was made and then tell the agent what to do with the fee; your source must have been particularly unlucky to find agents that do so or of course the writer was an agent who thought “I know, I’ve got a great idea, let’s charge the buyer a fee too and if we get it into the papers, this will be picked up and turned into a reality”.agent fees
