After 20 years I've had my fill so I'm selling my townhouse and moving out of state. If anyone knows of a realtor who will work for less than 6% commission, let me know. I'm ready to get out ASAP.

Uhh, ok.

Not sure how you can have an issue with the whole entire city. Wow...

What did Lexington do to you?? Or what did you do to Lexington??

There are several that work for less than 6%. The main thing you want to make sure of is that the agent you use still pays the buyer's agent a full 3%....otherwise buyer's agents may be less likely to show the place if they can make more from selling something that pays 3%. When I do a 5% listing, I always pay the buyer's agent 3% and take 2% for myself.

Thanks for your advice. I'm currently selling it on my own as I don't have that much equity paid into it unfortunately and I'd like to sell as quickly as possible.

Sorry for my earlier comment, I thought this thread was started by a troll.

That's fine, I'm just trying to find options on what I can do to sell my home quickly. I'm currently doing it on my own and my impatience sometimes gets the best of me. Also, if anyone in Lexington knows of a good place to post flyers or if anyone is looking to buy a home in the area, please let me know.

Impatience in selling a home is never a good thing. But since you have decided you need to get out of Lexington ASAP, why don't you tell us a little about the townhouse your offering - if your motivated to move I might be motivated to buy it from you. What's the adress?

When I moved back to Chicago from Lexington last year I had my house (which I owned outright) auctioned. I took a small hit but it was worth it to get out quick and easily; Hell, I probably would'a taken a hit anyway selling it conventionally. When it's time to go it's time to go.
