Livtaylor44 answered:
If you have a sophisticated buyer who is representing themselves, it is not really accurate to say that the listing agent "does twice the work". The caveat, of course, is "sophisticated buyer", or a buyer who has contracted an attorney who charges by the house, as opposed to an agent who charges 3% of the purchase price. The listing agent will still represent the best interests of the seller, which they should. From that perspective, if a buyer does not know what they are doing, they're just unrealistic, ignorant, and most likely a pain in the rear for the listing agent.

So given that sophisticated buyer, they should just reduce the final sales price by the amount of commission saved. I don't know how a listing agent can keep that money, it is unfair and unethical. Period. I'm certain that this will create a firestorm from agents, but as a previous agent, this is only fair, and very indicative of the future as websites like Trulia and Zillow provide better tools for self-representation. Don't hate me, it's just the flow of technology-enabled "innovation" and an Uber world of disintermediation. It DOES make better agents though, that's for sure!

It's BluWater Beach Apartments, a luxury beach apartment complex.

As of July 2014 we have finished construction on a portion of the property and have residents on site already. Total luxury units too! We have granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a dog park, a rooftop lounge, washer and dryers in the unit, etc.

Only 7 blocks to the Beach. Actually in our Sapphire Building we are almost at capacity.

Thanks Dot for asking, we are thrilled with how beautiful the construction has come along.

It's a risk but overall a lot of circumstances come into play. What is the crime like in the area? If it's high and the area isn't that great I wouldn't purchase a home there. Of course if it get's cleaned up it would increase in value but if it doesn't you are stuck with a home you may lose money on or be stuck with. ... more

I received 162,000,000 results in 0.2 seconds. There is no shortage of place to advertise.However, we all realize, there may be a shortage of time. What you are REALLY wanting to know is what venues have been successful for real estate professionals to find 'real' and qualifed buyers.
If you are serious about selling your home, you should pick up the phone and call a Jacksonville Beach professional. They will help you with your DIY efforts. However, that does not mean you will have access to all the ready, motivated, qualified buyers that are working with real estate professionals. But there are the 162,000,000 resources ready to aid you. But you knew that already, didn't you?
