Online sources pull information from a multitude of locations. The listing of 11 Laguna Court at $599,000 is from when the house last sold in February. Your current listing of the property shows up as well at the $665,000 list price.

Hope this helps....

Rockin- thanks for the plug...
the best method for getting this data is to have someone pull sales stats on the MLS. You can also get that information by calling the MLS directly.
But... I think you can also find that just by asking for a referral to a good agent!
I know a few in that area that are great and would do a good job... in fact I would consider co-listing it with another agent in my office - meaning you would get me on the listing and have another whole agent out there working for you for the same money. (I'd take 1/2 and she would too)...
just a thought

Instead of a bonus, we looked at our homes for sale that realistically, a 5k-10k price reduction truly isn't going to get everyone sooooo excited they are all of a sudden going to come look at your home. Instead, we decided to get the other agents in our marketplace on our side. We bumped the commission up and we and our sellers are offering the agents that brings an acceptable offer a 5% coop commission.

The reality is that real estate is a commission business and people in a commission business are definitely more excited about sales that have higher commissions. I am not suggesting that the higher commission is going to get an agent to convince someone to buy your home. I don't know if you can MAKE someone buy a home they don't really want. However, what it definitely does is get them to SHOW IT! There is absolutely no reason to take your home out of the "look at" stack if you are offering a commission way above anything else for sale in the area.

The reason this can be so effective is because National statistics still show that over 75% of all sales will come through an agent other than the person you have your home listed with. Therefore, you are increasing your odds of finding the buyer that will pay the most....must faster is every agent in your area has a huge incentive to sell your home.

Two other great questions to ask a realtor:

1) How many homes have you sold in 2008? and how many were your listings (not buyers)?

2) What is your average list to sale price ratio?

for example: The Korn Team in '08 averages between 98%-99% of the list price based on an average of 50+ listings sold every year. Our competition is averaging 93-95% of list price. That means that even though our sellers may be offering a little higher commission...they are still putting 1-2% more equity in their pocket by chosing our team. We can help you find those agents around the country. We are very well networked throught United States and Canada.

yes.. it can be done. A seller can offer a bonus to an agent or both agents for a successful transaction.

Hi Paul,

Where do I begin?

I am assuming that the owner of this Condo in Palm Beach Gardens is in a Severe Financial Crisis, where he/she cannot make any payments on the Mortgage(s) or to other Lien Holders.

There are many aspects that one has to consider in order to be qualified for, and then, to do a Short Sale.

I am a Short Sale Specialist and I work in the Palm Beach Gardens, as well as Palm Beach County and Martin County.

The first thing to do is to get Good Advice, from Short Sale Savvy Real Estate Agents, Attorneys, and Financial Advisors.

If the condo is not listed with another Real Estate Agent, then I would like to help you with the Condo Owner's situation.

Part of the help and assistance that I can offer, to My CLIENTS, is a FREE, 2 hour session with a Real Estate Attorney, to make sure the HomeOwner will be qualified for a Short Sale, and what other options are available and/or what repercussions can be expected.

Please give me a call or send an email.

And if anybody in Palm Beach or Martin County, or surrounding areas, needs help with a potential Short Sale Situation, do contact me,,,
