• Does fiber cement siding have to be repainted?

    I've read that you can repaint it if you decide you want a different color, but if you like the color can you just leave it or do you have to repaint it every few years, like wood siding?

  • Is anyone else upset that Jamie got sent home on Top Chef?

    She got canned even though her dish was better than Hosea's and Leah's, which proves the judging is a joke. I think H and L got to stay because their love affair adds plot interest.

Isn't there a higher probabability of cancer or other diseases when women give birth to very large families?

  • How much commission should I give a realtor?

    My house has been on the market for 6 months with no offers.

    My house has been on the market for 6 months with no offers. The prices are falling in our town and I've cut the asking price several times but the competition seem to be cutting their prices even faster. My realtor's listing expired and now I'm trying to decide whether to re-list with the same realtor or use someone else. When I hired this realtor I put the commission at 5 percent instead of the standard 6. She said she would accept this but since then she has repeatedly told me the house is not selling becuase the buyers' realtors are put off by the 5 percent (of which they get 2.5 percent). She supposedly put on a special bonus for seller's agents--I never saw proof that she did---but no results from that. Now she is saying if I re-list with her I should put the comission at 6 percent. I am thinking of canning her instead. It just seems she has a conflict of interest in giving this bit of advice and I don't trust her. What should I do??
