Are you a real estate agent or a home owner wanting to do for sale by owner? Trulia doesn't allow FSBO listings to be marketed on this site.

Read through your contract or consult with your real estate agent regarding any seller contingencies you might have in place. I am not familiar with the Florida purchase contract but there may be something in there allowing a cancellation of contract. Best of luck. ... more

You are on the right track searching for performance oriented can call the local mls or association of realtors or use a company that does the research for you. Good luck!

Many times real estate agents do not like it when people choose agents like this - frequently because they know they dont stand a chance at receiving the referra. Using sales data is, in my opinion, the BEST way to find the right person for the job!!

First I am wondering why you want to do a rent to own instead of selling the home. I do understand that if you think it is worth less money than you owe on it. However, I have done several rent to own deals over the years and at least 75% of them never close. If you do rent to own, you will get renters who will take better care of the property since they think of it as their home but they will also freely make changes to the home without permission. You can write in the rent to own agreement that they are not to make changes but unless you make regular check ups on them, you won't know what they are doing. I also agree that you should get them pre-qualified with a mortgage person. Also, in today's economy most renters do not have the extra money that is usually required to do a lease to own. In the past, 1% to 2% non-refundable was required. Today, they can barely come up with one month's rent. I know some good real estate agents in the Greensboro area, so if you would like to talk to one of them, please contact me. They could tell you what your property is worth and more about rent to own.

I live at 3896 Picciola Rd, Lot 423 - but the property at Lot 121 on Piccioa Rd (which was already submitted by the owner) keeps popping up, thus not allowing me to get my lot number submitted

Typically when a home is not selling it's the pricing. You need a professional to market your home. 81% of all buyers search the internet before ever calling a Realtor. If your home is marketed and positioned in the market place correctly, It will sell. ... more

I will gladly give you a closing cost estimate, please check my website and feel free to contact me for an estimate.

As a seller you have the right to choose which title company will close your transaction once it is under contract, by shopping around now and being proactive you will save yourself money. Instead of letting your realtor decide for you, shop around and check out a few title companies before making a decision. There are many different title companies in the area and some have higher and lower closing fees, above and beyond that, get references and check them out for your best deal to save you money at closing. ... more
