So I talked to Toyota Financial last week requesting to transfer the extended warranty on my dad's car who passed in Jan 2011 over to me.

I went the limited services route ($400 to get home listed on local MLS) and I'm not getting any traffic. I am offering 3% to buyers agents and at an asking price that is lower sq/ft than comps that sold within the last 6 months - one closing last week.
So do Realtors blackball these Brokers and...

So I don't want to have to spend 15K by selling my house with a realtor but I want to get on the MLS Listing. I'm willing to part with 2-3% for a buyers agent, but I bought at high point in 2007 so if I use a realtor with the comps in the neighborhood I'm likely to lose quite a bit.
I found a ...

Also, is it normal for them to give discounts if I want them to do it every other week and every week once it gets into summer? I normally mow so this if n...

Any thoughts on this as a primary/lone investment? My wife is going to a company without a retirement plan so we have to do it ourselves.
