Hi all!

Every once in a while I see a little squib from someone about using
real estate agents to sell houses.  What has been your experience?
Were the agent's fees included in your operating budget or were the
commissions paid from contingency fees?  At what point in your
development process did you use real estate agents?  From the
beginning or when down to the last few houses?  In general, did you
find using agents to be a satisfactory arrangement?  How much
educating did you do w/ various agents?  If you listed on MLS many
different agents can show a house -- did you have any surprises?  Did
you have a trailer on site or did you have "private" showings?

Any other tid bits gratefully accepted.

Thanks in advance!
