Right off the bat--do not move twice if you do nto have to. Are you buying a new house while your current one is on the market?
We don't plan to buy another house until the current one is sold. What we were thnking of doing was moving into an apartment townhome closer to DC, based mostly on my wife's crappy commute between Baltimore and DC. But moving back to apartment life just wasn't appealing and we've decided to stick it out at least for the next six months.
Also, not paying a mortgage and a apartment rental payment is a perk, though we had seriously thought of renting out our current home. Would have had to pay multiple moving costs, etc. I felt much better once we decided to stay put, at least for the next six months.
I'm on a quick lunch break so I'll e-mail later tonight but I know you get paid for this stuff and don't want to take up much of your time. I just didn't know if the % and nominal fee were way off-base, if I should shop around for agents/brokers, etc., havning not done this before.
