Mr. Castro,

There are plenty of prior questions on For Sale By Owners - commonly known as FSBO- I would suggest reading them for pointers, first. Here's a link to start you off on your search.

Since it has been a couple of years, did you ever sell your condo? Did you get out before the prices dropped a lot or did you get stuck in the place?

Get a good real estate attorney to advise you, get some good photographs taken and advertise here and on the NY Times real estate website. Hold open houses every Sunday between noon and 4pm (any 2 hours within) and just make sure you keep in close contact with your attorney. I'll be happy to refer a good attorney to you and give you tips if you like.

if you're still here on voices, i'm curious to know how it turned out. was the flip tax on the profit [difference between the price you bought it for and the current contract selling price?]

you have choices....

Is your flip tax really 17.5% of your sale price? Can that fee be negotiated if you get interest from mulitiple buyers? You may want to start with a written explanation of why it is so out of whack. Standard flip-tax is 2% of the purchase price paid by the seller.

Maybe you should consider taking a few weeks to try to sell it on your own, if it doesn't work, call a professional. I'd be happy to help.
