Yes that is correct, that is the current "standard rate" been like that for awhile now. Although there is no set rate, this what what most realtors charge their clients. Anything more, the agent will have to justify why.

I'm a realtor myself and that is what I charge my sellers.

However, I just sold my house in April, and we used the "standard" rate:

Commission = 7% on first $100k and 2.5 on remainder
Buyer's agent gets 46.5% of the commission + HST
Seller's agent gets 53.5% of the commission + HST (because he has more expenses than the buyer's agent, my agent had to pay his agency + REBGV for listing on MLS)

All of this can be negotiable...

The cutting bit is a die, the handle is a die stock.

It's a pretty standard tool, Canadian Tire and KMS both carry them.

When I still lived with my Mom years ago, she also hired a crack head looking team of two guys who went door to door offering to clean gutters and windows for $40~.

They did a decent job, but still

They did a decent job, but still
A couple of years ago, when I first started my biz(reno) I quoted this guy for painting his garage. We were talking and he seemed decent. Tells me he had this sketchy looking guy that said he'd do it for $500, but needed the money up front.

Tells me that he'd much prefer to have me do it, as I look all clean and professional. This other guy would probably flake on him(um, yeah?)

I tell him that I can't meet heroin addict pricing, but I can come in close and do things by the book. I think I quote him $800 or some shit.

Calls me the next day to get me to meet the $500 price by saying, "well, I do have this other guy willing to do it for 500..."

And I say: "Let me get this straight. You don't want to hire the heroin addict, but want heroin addict pricing?"

...I didn't get that job...

People just annoy me. Had another guy in his negotiation say "oh, I've got a guy that will do it for 2k"

Get the other guy to do it then. Oh..right. There IS no other guy. This is a line.

I did get that job.

People shock me at the things they do. You see on the news, and you say to yourself like, how do these people fall for it?

That guy was going to hand a sketchy looking addict 500 and then wonder A) why my garage looks like shit or B) why this heroin addict guy stole my money?

Some crack head came knocking on my door not to long ago offering the same clean your gutters service for $50

He said i took a look at your gutters and they are really dirty. I gave him this look , cause I just cleaned my gutters the day before

Another question for everyone, I'm thinking about getting some lowering springs for my 93 EG, but not too sure if that's a good idea running them on the stock struts. My EG is at almost 297k km now, and I'm not sure if the struts are still the original ones but I'll just assume that they are. Would they last another 20k km or so if I were to put aftermarket springs on them? The springs atm are stock and I'm assuming that the springs on the struts have been OEM their entire life since the car was never modified before.

You are better off changing the struts at the same time to save you the hassle but if you don't your ride might be a bit rougher until you do change them. Why wait the 20k change them now so you will be ready to go for the summer!!
