    As far as possible, buy first and then sell your existing apartment...

    agree wif ur view on agents working for maximum gain for themselves.
    Tis is the sad part abt selling. There is no transparency at all wif all this agents ard.

    All in all this whole episode had taught us a lesson. Now we r at a cross roads of rili pushing on wif the sale coz we have found a unit tat we rili like and wish to buy for home stay or to just to cancel and stay put. We may decide on either but wateva it is, tis lesson will be remembered in a long long time.

    Ask your agent to collect the deposit plus forms, talk is cheap (be it x -20 or x-25). You then take from there to decide you want to accept of decline in the case of yours..

    On the other hand…if you considered that is your dream unit. Consider to offer abit lower to offset your selling , the whole mechanism may just balance. Loose some, win some…some time we can not win all ….

    unfortunately, I hv oredi tol d agent we r pulling out n won't proceed.
    I guess it's natural instinct to pull out once there is doubt in the whole process.

    Wat u say is true..I did consider accepting one of the offers n offer to buy the lilydale at a lower price..however ultimately I feel I jus doubt the agent to the extent I dnt wan to the whole ting go tru at all.

    it is better not to nego directly with the buyers....u may ended up getting even lower offers or buyers back out....

    before selling....ask urself whether u r serious in selling or merely testing market?

    all buyers wana buy low low....and all sellers wana sell high high....i believe agts goto tell lies here and there inorder to close a deal...smtimes it cud be a white lie? depends how u see it....very often , u will hear agts telling u as a buyer tat the last offer was xx....imagine u nego with the buyers directly...den u say the last offer was actually lower or better still...no last offer at all....the whole lobang blow up....lol

    may ended up in serious argument....if u wana nego with buyers directly...y engage an agent in the first place? u shd sell the hse urself and advertise on the newspaper on ur own....i have tried b4...doesnt work one...haha

    i remember last time...i was ignorant....i viewed a place and i straightaway match seller asking price without bargaining on the very SPOT....ended up, the seller up the asking price and i walk away....if i were to go back hm and make the offer via the agt and make my first offer 1-2% lower den asking price...i wud have probably bot the place oredi....we nid middleman one lah....

    another way to get higher offer is to 'motivate' ur agent.....tell him let say fetch me this x price...u will pay him X more comm....if not only 1% comm...it works for me

    performance based comm

    I have met agents who offered to let me nego directly wif the seller and the agent takes up the facilitator role.I feel this way is better as both seller n buyer can rili show sincerity n seriousness in dealing.

    I agree wif ur view on tings may go out of hand but I belief if all parties are sincere n objective.. Then most prob tings dnt go out of hand.

    I hv tot of selling the unit myself. However I oso realise it may quite tedious n the results may not be favorable.

    It can be said we r serious abt selling, however we jus wan a honest process n of course fetch the price tat we wan.

    as a seller, ur job is too engage a best performing agt(negotiator)

    y wud u wana nego the prices urself and yet paying the agt the same comm??? agts most impt role is to nego and fetch(pyscho) the best price for u and not just merely advertise and bring buyers to view the place...

    only CMI agts wud want sellers/buyers to nego the price as they themselves duno how to close the deal....haha

    try performance based comm lah...or change another agt
