Questions and answers for Denver-area homesellers

J. David Lampe, RealtorQ: Who pays Colorado real estate sales commissions?
A: Sellers typically pay real estate commissions in Colorado. The commission is usually split between the buyer’s and seller’s agents and is paid at closing. The sales commission is deducted from the seller’s proceeds at closing.

Q: How will you market my home so that it sells quickly?
A: I use extensive Internet marketing, including your own promotional Web site, exposure on realtor.com, my Web site, the RE/MAX Alliance Web site, twitter.com, facebook.com, youtube.com, Google Base, and regular postings to craigslist.org and backpage.com.

Q: What is included with my home when I sell?
A: Anything attached to the home is a part of the sale. These attachments include light fixtures, window treatments and blinds, built-in shelves, and cabinets. If you wish to remove any of these attachments when you move, you need to exclude them in your listing contract.
