Beycome (

Saw them on HuffPost and listed for free (will probably be getting their MLS package soon though).

According to their site, they have 3 packages:

* Free - Free, but you only get your home listed on their site
* Flat Fee MLS (for FL) - $79 one time (honestly haven't found a better deal than this)
* $9 MLS + Yard Signs - I'll be ordering this one (they have a closing cost of $149 but only at the end of the home close)

I've seen their house signs in my neighborhood so I'd say they're pretty reputable.

Good luck!

We know many successful agents who do nothing but talk sellers into listing with them, usually for 20% more than the house would sell for. Then after 2 weeks, they inform the seller that the price is too high, and convince them to lower it, Then they move on to find more listings, and NEVER try to find a buyer. When some other agent actually works and finds a buyer, the lazy listing agent gets half the commission for doing NOTHING!!!

Not sure what your question is. However owning a property with someone else is always tricky as it's inevitable that the time will come where one or the other will want to sell and unless there's a clearly written agreement as to what to do when that time comes, it can often get contentious. ... more

I doubt it. The main reason is the seller has the right to sell their home for whatever they feel they need based on their circumstances. If this means a quick sale, then a lower price point is needed to generate an offer. Aside from that, most people would want the best price they can get for their house, and this would be true regardless of the motivation of the seller. Just changes the listing price based on their motivation and circumstances. If you live in a gated community or a community with very similar style homes (townhomes, condos) the price may be more of an issue for consistency, but still the sale should be based on the best possible price based on condition, and meeting the seller's needs. Here is my experience, most people think their home is worth more vs less, which is why many homes on are on the market too long, or have expired listings. Pricing is not a static should be flexible to accommodate condition, time on the market, and needs of the seller.

Yes, open houses are still done... good idea to ask your agent all these kind of questions before you sign the listing...also, don't sign for a 6 months or longer listing if unsure, go with a short term listing to test the agent and their performance. Tom Hinz ... more

Both the realty transfer tax and "exit" tax are reduced for seniors. The tax that is paid on the proceeds of the sale are normally recorded on the seller's NJ tax return. When a seller is moving out of state the tax is referred to as the "exit" tax and it paid for at the time of settlement.

Gerald DeMarco answered:
The term “exit tax” is misleading, effective Aug. 1, 2004, the state enacted P.L. 2004, Chapter 55, which requires nonresidents of New Jersey to pay an estimated tax on the income from the sale of New Jersey real property. If you plan on maintaining residency -whether renting or living with family or friends- you will still be a resident of New Jersey. At settlement you should complete Form GIT/REP-3 (Sellers Residency Certification/Exemption) and check box #1 under Seller Assurances. ... more

Jonathan E. Brill, Ph.D. answered:
Not being an attorney, I cannot offer legal advice. And since you seem to be represented by a Realtor, as a Realtor I cannot interfere by offering specific advice regarding your transaction. All I can and will do is answer your question in general terms.

Parties to any contract (e.g., a real estate contract for sale) can agree to revise that contract in any way they want provided that the modification does not require any party to do something fraudulent or unlawful. I have seen many proposed changes to real estate contracts, but I am sure I will not have seen them all even when the day that I stop selling real estate has come.

If your contract is fully executed and binding in its present form, you don't have to agree to change it and the parties will remain legally required to perform according to the provisions of the contract as it is written. In this case, you should consult with your attorney and your Realtor about the benefits and drawbacks of agreeing or refusing to modify the contract with a proposed Amendment.

If the contract is not yet signed by the buyer, then the buyer might refuse to enter into the contract without the proposed Addendum (or "rider"). If the contract is signed by both parties yet remains subject to attorney review (i.e., not yet fully binding upon the parties), then the contract is subject to cancellation by the buyer's attorney if you do not agree to change it with an Addendum or an Amendment. In these two cases, you must weigh the decreased value (to you) of the contract integrated with the proposed changes versus the possibility that the buyer will walk if you do not agree to the proposed changes.

The Exit Tax is for a non-resident of New Jersey who sells a property here. I do not know the Massachusetts real estate law and it would be good to call an agent there for this information.

If I can help you further, I can be reached at 609-519-0076.
