I think the "tax" you might mean is if you do not live in the home you short sell within the past 5 years. In that case you would pay the tax when leaving the state.

Krista Bell answered:
I am pretty sure you are able to post your own property for sale, whether or not you are a real estate agent or not. I would highly recommend your at least consulting with a top real estate agent in your area for access to all the needed forms and disclosures to make sure you have minimized your risk of litigation. FSBO's can be tough - especially navigating legal contracts, disclosures, and ensuring you negotiate your sale for top dollar - yielding the highest net possible to you - so, best of luck to you and the sale of your property!

Warm regards,

I recommend calling an insurance professional as there are many factors to consider. Size of home, elevation and proximity to water are just a few. I also recommend calling someone local and familiar with the area. Hauswirth & sons on Route 9 in Forked River is fabulous. I highly recommend calling them @ 609.693.3123. ... more

Andrew Tisellano answered:
Taxes are not a problem just an expense.
If you are selling it for more than you purchased it then you will have to pay taxes on the gains.
The only other tax is the transfer fee tax which is less than 1% of the selling price and is paid at the closing table. ... more

Leonard Dunikoski answered:
Kindredsoul, did you decide to put your home on the market?

If not, you may have been lucky- selling prices have gone up in most towns in Ocean and Monmouth Counties.

If you text, call or email me and give me the name of your town, I'd be glad to give you a 5 month year-to-date comparison of 2013 vs 2012, including number of sales, median selling price, number of homes currently in the market, and the real estate absorption rate. That last one is important, and if you're not familiar with it I'd be glad to explain what it is and why it's important.

Susan Fletcher answered:
That's correct. The rental would have to be year round. Yes, $80 to 95,000 is good for a rental property but not if looking to flip after putting in $20,000. You'll never get your money back, with realty transfer fees and taxes, this is not even considering a commission should you list the house. ... more
