Hello,

The buyer is not required to give you a copy of the inspection report. You can ask for it and maybe even offer to pay a nominal fee for a copy.

Good Luck

June Buerkle answered:
If your contract is specific in it's wording and is clear that the seller will cover no agent fees, then you will pay nothing.

If your contract is silent on the matter, the seller will be assumed to cover the costs of the agent and pay half of the standard commission to the buyer's agent and half to any selling agents.

Alternately, you could reach out to the agent and negotiate a fee structure directly.

Unless the deal is overly complicated or valued over $1 million, a real estate attorney is overkill.

I suggest you hire a Real Estate Attorney to make sure contract and disclosures are in order to protect both sides.

Generally closing costs are 1.5% + commissions. I'm not sure if it's customary for Lee county sellers to pay for Transfer taxes, but you will provide the Owners Title Insurance Policy.

Hope this helps.

Craig Fialkowski answered:
Generally speaking it's a painless process and you likely won't need the services of an Attorney. The Real Estate Agent and Title Company does all the work.
Please remember if the home is in Palm Beach County, you typically pay for the transfer Taxes (Doc Stamps) and Owners Title Insurance Policy. If you pay a 6% commission your total closing costs will run about 7.5% of the contract price.

All taxes, and HOA fees are pro-rated. Since property taxes are paid in arrears, you will have to credit the new buyer from January 1 - the closing date for property taxes.

If you have any additional questions ,please click on my contact information and I'll be happy to help.

You cannot post a FSBO listing directly on Trulia, try Zillow instead.

Your best bet to hire an agent and your condo will be all over the internet.
More than that: we usually advertise our listings within our client database and sometimes it's the best as we are working with investors a lot here in S Fla.
Good luck.

Save, Both Buyer and Seller in Miami Beach, FL

Save answered:
eAgent.me is based in South Florida and will list your property on MLS and hundreds of other web portals worldwide. They use the latest smart technologies, like blockchain, automated market analysis, and more, allowing their clients to save time and money.

They work for a nominal fee which the seller pays ONLY IF the property is sold. So their sellers have nothing to lose and save at least 3% on every transaction--sometimes even more!

Their automated process allows you to put up your property for sale in a few easy steps and lets you create professional videos, photos, and 3D tours. Their technology allows them to reach a larger pool of potential buyers and opens up the opportunity of international buyers by translating listings to other languages.

Diane Christner answered:
Your closing agent should have done a separate utility search in addition to the title search as unpaid utilities do not always show up in a title search. Whether you have to pay the utilities owed by previous owners is something I would take back to my title company for clarification. Did you take notes at the time of closing? Do you know who you spoke with at the city? If so, you could also go back to that person who told you not to worry and see what they now have to say as well.

One last thought - did anyone put their "don't worry about it" regarding the utilities in writing?

Buyer Beware. Its important that you have done all your research to be comfortable enough to sign a hold harmless. Ive seen this mostly with Bank Foreclosures. Typical deals dont require a hold harmless. If they are asking...my guess, its for a reason. Good Luck

Diane Christner answered:
First, some basic info about owning mobile homes in FL. In Florida, a mobile home is a motor vehicle and requires a certificate of title as proof of ownership just as your car or truck does. There is a separate title document for each section of your mobile home (there is one title document for a single-wide mobile home, and two title documents for a double-wide). If your mobile home has been paid for in full, you will receive the title(s) from Tallahassee.

If you own the land on which your mobile home is located and the home is permanently affixed to the land, it is considered "real property" and property taxes are paid each year as set by the county property appraiser's office. If you rent the land on which your home is located, or if your home is not permanently affixed to your land, you must purchase and display a decal each year for each section of your mobile home.

If you purchase a new mobile home, the dealer must be licensed with the Division of Motor Vehicles, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Used mobile homes on rented lots may be sold by licensed dealers or the owner may sell his own mobile home just as with site built homes. If the mobile home is permanently affixed to land you own, then it can be sold through a FL licensed real estate agent.

On a used mobile home on a rented lot, the selling dealer is responsible for fulfilling the terms specified in the contract. The title should show the correct model year of the mobile home. If the home is purchased from a dealer, the dealer must apply for title in your behalf. If no dealer is involved, follow the same procedure as you would to transfer any other motor vehicle title.

Your county tax collector's office will be able to answer any questions you might have concerning the title transfer once you find a buyer.

Gary Hitchcock answered:
Hello Dawn if you are serious about selling your home you'll need to find a good Realtor that can list and market your home appropriately. Go to the top of Trulia and click on Find An Agent, then input your city. The top Realtors will appear, click on their profile AND read their recommendation letters. If a Realtor has been in business for a minimum 10 years and has lots of recommendations then I’d call and interview the top 3 that have that level of experience and success. ... more

Maria Cipollone answered:
Short sales are a complicated and time consuming process. If you really have a hardship, tell your real estate agent to get more offers on the table, higher than the asking price, therefore, the bank can accept and approved one. The bank will start the short sale process only after received an offer that will be close to the numbers that they already have.

Best of Luck,

Maria Cipollone

Lewis Berkow…, Real Estate Pro in Boca Raton, FL

Lewis Berkowitz answered:
Donna,

Your realtor told you $60k was the current value, why would you offer $70K? This is not a used car, where you might pay a couple hundred more because you like the color. Even if they accepted 70K, what would you do when the appraisal comes in at 60k or 62k? Your lender will only lend on APPRAISED value. I think your time would be better spent finding another property. ... more

You are correct Michael, I think an appraisal will give you the truth. I had one short sale a couple of month ago where the buyer submit an offer and the bank came back asking $20k more. The buyer submit a higher offer but at the same time he did an appraisal and the appraisal came lower than the original offer. The buyer made an addendum reducing the price to the appraisal value. Short sale was approved and closed. ... more
