Thanks Ron for making other Realtors look like we all don't have integrity and are rude . Not cool.

But to be honest if you sell your house fsbo 92% of people that try fail and end up hiring an agent because they can't do it their self. Zillow is months and months of outdated information. And the average person that sells fsbo will get 12% less then their original listing price.
Also, why would you lower your asking price the amount of money it would cost to pay for a commission. That's silly. If you were to hire an agent with actual Integrity who was really good at selling Not only would you be able to list your house for everything that it's worth but in this market you're likely to get multiple offers and get more money bottom line then you could any other way and that's with or without an agent. But if you're going to do it without an agent you have to be willing to pay to put it on the MLS to pay for your own marketing your own mailers put it on a hundred different websites hold open houses private showings make sure you know the comps in the neighborhood make sure you know how that area and neighborhood is selling get your neighbors involved always be on the phone with potential buyers you may not think it's a lot of work but it actually is a lot of work. Especially when you get to the contracts and the addendums and then the title company n the home insurance and then if things go wrong you need a remedy. Inspections often go bad. All of this can be avoided if you can find a good Agent who has your interest at the Forefront. That's my two cents have a great day

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!

Hi Akazlak2,
Depending on the type of work which needs to be completed for a particular project, building Permits may be required, and consequently will require a licensed contractor. You can certainly manage the project and fire the contractors directly.
Best of luck!

Thanks for your service to our country from one Veteran to another. This is a question I get asked a lot by my fellow Vets and the true answer is, It depends on when you get the tax exemption (Usually you cannot apply for the exemption until after you have owned the home) and what supporting documents you can provide that grants you the exemptions) It works great when it comes to refinancing but not so well in some states when it comes to purchase. I would suggest that you gather all the exemption documents from the taxing authority in the area that you will be looking into purchasing the home and once that condition is sanctified the Lender can underwrite the loan without taxes. I would be delighted to assist you in making this dream a reality.

Speak to an attorney or just move on. You can ask to be reimbursed for the time & materials you put in, but your uncle doesn't sound like a reasonable person. Life is short and getting bogged down fighting over this probably isn't worth it. In the future get everything in writing and have it drafted by an attorney. ... more

My NC Homes Team answered:
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

thinz answered:
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.
