You can't post your own house by yourself. You would have to look into flat fee listing services.
I know commission rates for agents can seem daunting, but the statistics show that going FSBO (for sale by owner) isn't the best choice. We hope you do whatever you feel confident doing, but want to educate at the same time.
Only ~30% of the transactions listed through For Sale By Owner actually get sold. At http://www.upnest.com/ , we often run into sellers who can't sell on their own and came to us to compare agent rates and services.
FSBO homes are often mis-priced, which often leads to the home sitting on the market and becoming undesirable.
Selling a house on your own also opens you up to huge liability, even if you disclose everything properly in your seller's disclosure. Buyer agents can often times steer clients away from FSBO homes, too, possibly giving you a smaller market of home buyers. And often times if a for sale by owner home is sold, they may have to lower the price, negating the who reason for not hiring a realtor.... more
Chasity, I have a home for sale by owner at 10687 Belforest Cemetery Road in Daphne. We have 2.82 acres and a huge L shaped pool!! You can view my listing on forsalebyowner.com. It is a wonderful family home!... more
I've just sold one there not too long ago. The average at the time was about $77 dollars a square foot. That is not the most current CMA, so I would have to do another before I can give you current conditions.
If your buying a condo that lets say is 80,000 and your putting down 20%, then your looking at a $64,000 mortgage. If you finance a 30 year mortgage at 4.5% interest your looking at $325 dollars a month in payment. Be aware that YC does have HOA fees that are about $400 a month. So your looking at spending $725 monthly.
Hope that helped! The numbers were only an estimate and not fact. A lender would give you the exact amount, because it would vary depending on interest rate and home value.

MS. Pompey, I grew up in Houston, and loved it!! I now live in Daphne, very near Japonica. I would need the exact location & size to give an accurate price to sell. I can say, unless it is priced under market value, you most likely would not have a quick sale. But, you NEVER know, until it is out there with a sign on it!! I would be happy to help you establish a price, and market this property for you.
Please contact me: 251-767-3097, or GretaCollinsRealtor@gmail.com, and we can talk.
Thanks! Greta... more
Most condos DO allow pets, but they require a pet deposit. Usually there is a limit on number of pets & size of the dogs. Each condo association has its own rules. I have shown many units at this Yacht Club Drive location, and each section is different, but, most allow pets within a certian criteria of numbers, and weight.
I would be happy to show you these condos, and we can get specific answers from the Sellers.
please feel free to call me, Greta Collins, 251-767-3097, Fairhope/Daphne, Alabama... more
If you are getting mortgage, the mortgage underwriters will tell what types of coverage the required on the specific property in order to guarantee their interests are protected.
However, if you paid cash, you have to decide what amount of risk you can afford to take. Basically, can you afford to cover all the damage and loss of belongings if a flood damages or destroys your home.... more
This is a property and company specific question. That's why it's very important to contact multiple agents for quotes once you have decided on a property, as they can vary by hundreds of dollars. It is also dependent upon the deductibles you choose to absorb at each coverage level.

The taxes run about $650. per year if you are claiming this as your homestead. If it is investment property the taxes run around $1,300. per year and if you are going to rent the property the taxes would be approximately $1,950. per year. If you claim H-1 homestead you will get a credit lowering the taxes to approximately $600. If you do not have over $12,000. of taxable income you could be exempt. If you are totally and permanently disabled your taxes could be 0. If you are over 65 years of age there is a discount for that!
Now that I have probably totally confused you, you may contact me for further information or to help you relocate to Baldwin County.... more
Reasons properties are sold are as varied as the people who own them. However, Daphne, and especially Lake Forest, seemed to have been hit extra hard with foreclosures over the past several years. Now that many of the bankruptcy properties are selling, those that have been wanting to sell who didn't need to do a foreclosure are finally entering the market. Buyers are also realizing that prices are starting to go up and properties are moving, so if you like a home, it's important to make your offer ASAP.
Please give me a call if I can assist you in visiting this or any other properties. I will gladly research active listings to target a search specific to your needs.... more
