A seller typically pays around 6% of the closing cost in commissions. That's 3% for the listing agent, and 3% for the buyer's agent.

But in Miami Beach there are companies like that offer full real estate services and at a flat fee. Rather than taking commissions, only charges a nominal fee at the closing so sellers save at least 3% every time. ... more

Hi Orlando,
There are currently 13 one bedroom units on the mulitiple listing service for sale in the building. There is no way to know if there are unis for sale by owner, I only can see what is listed on the system and they are all with realtors. The prices for the one beddrooms range form 90,888 to 175,000, with the lowest few being short sales of course.
The only thing you have to consider is that people may opt to try for the short sales first before the reguar sales, so you will have to compete with them for now.
I do suggest that you list your property on the Multiple Listing Service, it is the best way to reach buyers worldwide as oppossed to the local market you may be able to reach as an owner.
If you feel you would like to discuss that option feel free to contact me, I would be glad to assist you.
