You would have to pay for what's called a flat fee listing service for your home to be on Trulia. You can easily post on Zillow, though.

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us out at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Hi Maggie,

Of course you can make these arrangements.....dreams do come true! This is the perfect time of year to make this type of move since our seasonal visitors have returned north and there are plenty of rental opportunities. Trust, there is a difference between an annual rental(off season) rate and a seasonal rate. Generally annual rates are much lower than seasonal rates.

Being realistic, there are very few 3/2 beachfront rentals. The vast majority are 2 bedroom units. You'll find that there is a difference in rates on the island. Rates tend to be higher the nearer you are to the beach and northern portion and are generally lower nearer the airport or east of route 41 business.

I offer you two important websites that you can use to help with your search. These are two long established rental management companies that do an excellent job and are recommended companies. Their websites are very informative, offering rates, descriptions, availability, and photographs of each property. They are, Horse & Chaise and Home & Condo.

Feel free to be in touch with us should you require any additional information. We'll be happy to support your interests.

Best regards,

Bill Eckler

I come across many For Sale By Owners like your selves a lot. The best way to get a lot of local exposure is probably Craigslist. Then you get a lot of other spider web sites thru IDX. Because you have no land, your mobile home is classified as real property only. I hope this helps ... more

A pre-listing inspection has great value when trying to sell fast. Most homes will have an inspection before the sale is completed, 90% of the time it is paid for by the buyer but the benefits of having a seller have a pre-listing inspection are huge.

5 reasons you should have a Pre-Listing Inspection.

1. Buyers are 89% more confident when they see a property with a pre-inspection report.

2. Property sells 30% faster when they have a pre-inspection report.

3. Pre-inspection reports elevate unnecessary negotiations and discounts.

4. Pre-inspection report helps the seller get more for there property.

5. Helps your home sell Faster and with less aggravation.

How many times have deals fallen apart because of a hidden fault?
How much time have you waisted because of a hidden defect?

Pre-listing home inspections performed for the seller are now becoming the first step in fast tracking the sale. By moving the inspection to the beginning of the sales cycle agents are able to shorten the process by removing obstacles before they can interfere with a potential sale. Pre-listing home inspections are not new. They have been a part of the home inspection business for a number of years but are now being recognized as a valuable sales tool.

Michael Saunders and Coldwell Banker depending what month are number one or two and Signature Sothebys run third. That was the latest report I read yesterday. I may ad also, 3% of all agents sell 95% of the business. When it comes down to it, it is every agent's activity that determines a great agent. Call me and I would like to interview to sell your home for the amount you want in the time you want. Lets set an appointment. My name is Rick ... more

Hi Mary,
Preparation for purchase is the best way to get into a bank owned (REO) property. First, you need to get proof of funds for a cash deal or a qualification letter from a major financial institution. Second, You need a good agent to promote your offer over competing offers; most banks will price the property below market in order to spur competing offers, then wait 7 days and select the best offer, which may be more than list price. Once an offer is accepted it can close as soon as 7 days or, in the case financing, it could take 30-45 days, depending on your lender. Most all REO's are sold "as-Is" with right to inspect. If you want to get your foot in the door and would like a sneak preview of some pre-foreclosure properties, then please call me at 941-349-6465.

Hello Vicki,
Has your daughter and SIL spoken to their agent about their disappointment? Every agent around would be willing to help them but they did sign on with their current agent and that's where their conversation should begin. An updated market analysis would be in order and exposing the property on as many internet sites possible is important. But most of all, pricing is critical. Regardless of the unit being updated, it must be priced based on other 1/1 units. We all think our property is better than most. Let go of personal points of view. Have them sit down and have a serious conversation with their agent about where to go from here. A good agent knows what to do.
