UpNest Top Realtors answered:
The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

If you have kids, you need to know that most of the public schools in FL are not good, so plan on private school. Check crime stats in the area you are looking. Drive around A LOT to make sure you aren't missing anything (like a bad residential area, a coal burning plant, water treatment facility), etc. Ask about flood insurance, wind insurance, property taxes- all much higher than GA. Water/Sewage costs in FL are 5-10 times what they are in GA and in many cases, costs more per month than electricity.
But the weather is great for 8 months of the year!

To start by being repetitious all the advice below is pretty firm.

There are very strong reasons for both and the best answer isn't possible due to a lack of detail. The person who would know is your accountant, or if you don't have one, you need tax advice, not real estate. There are simply too many areas of concern to really give clear advice in a forum like this. Income is a factor, AMT is a factor, Investment strategy, your age, your family situation, your lifestyle and income, etc. Generally advising a client to lease option is to prevent a liquid seller for having to sell in the best buyers market in years. Let the crisis pass you buy and sell in a better market. Yes it is leasing, yes it has risks, yes you probably won't close but you still have the asset.

I might also suggest an investment opinion. Ask your investment advisor what the best inflation hedge is and what the probability of 70's style inflation is in the coming years. Between your Tax guy, Investment guy and realtor, the answer should become very clear.
