Sure do. I should find out how much YOU know about LBI, ever rent here? Like beach block or is bay side more to your liking? What i would love to do is come visit you, I can give you things to bring you up to speed. I am doing this on Monday in jersey city and last week I spoke to home seekers in their N. NJ. home. I know this sounds a bit 'different' but it works. It cuts searching time down to a mnimum number of hours. I was in HighBar Harbor (Barnegat light) last week and Holgate the week before but they are 15 miles apart and there is soooo much inbetween. my cell is 732-778-9933 my email is Of course i can email you many many many properties but it really works better FACE TO FACE there is no charge or obligation. I am the past president of the Burlington County Board of REALTORS in 1978 and a service IS the way of the future. Call / email me if i can help hope to see you soon, what about this weekend? My office is off rt 70 in Barnegat 609-607-8600 i am the manager. marc Williams ... more

It depends on what you mean by "good" - could you be more specific about what you're looking for?

Audrey if you have the time to invest on doing it yourself, and your comfortable with all the contracts, and you have a marketing plan then I wish you the best ...... if your main motivation for doing it yourself is to save the commission....... trust me a realtor is worth every penny...... interview atleast 3 and see what they have to offer you ...keeping in mind that not all broker services are the same and that you want someone that you can relate to , it always helps the process go by so much easier .... :) ... more

Depends on the goal. My preference is stop the car at any house that has a construction dumpster and ask "Who's in charge here?". It surprisingly has excellent results for listings. If you want to sell, craigslist. ... more

If it seems too good to be true it probably and usually is.

You get what you pay for and you'll either do most of the work yourself or you are correct, they will not aggressively market your home. ... more

Houses in Moutain View tend to hold their value and can be less affected by fluctuations in the market - so it can be a good place to buy. Mt. View is attractive as it has a pedestrian friendly downtown, and is, indeed, in a great location, central to the Silicon Valley and the city. There is good public transportation to Mt. View, too, and many of the businesses there offer shuttles to the Amtrak train. ... more

Paul Slaybaugh answered:
Great post, Jim. Most sellers just flat-out do not have a grasp on what market value actually is. In a slow market, you can't pull out comps that are 6 months old as evidence of current market value. Sellers also look at the houses around them currently for sale and think, "By golly, I am priced under all of the competition, so I must be below market value." Wrong! Until those properties sell, they do not constitute market value. Especially in an area with declining values, there is a high probability that most everything is overpriced. If the only homes selling are the cheapies, that is market value. People have a hard time accepting the fact that they can't go back to the high water mark from a year or two ago, circle it, and cite it as proof that their current list price is well below that "market value." ... more

Sometimes you can sell a home yourself and have good results. But many times what you dont know can hurt you. In our culture of litigation, not knowing what documents to use and what needs to be dislosed can come back to bite you. A good Realtor should be able to get you more for your home, will do all the work, pay for the advertising and other expenses, and protect your rights. And they only get paid if the actually sell your home! This should more than make up the commission. ... more

Nate Oskar answered:
Sure, Natalie, if all you want is to be on the MLS. This is what is called a limited representation listing and basically means that you get no representation whatsoever. Furthermore, you will still be paying the buyer's agent (most ofter) and therefore will have a pro representing the other side.

I love this:

A man sees a doctor and is told, "Your appendix has ruptured. I will need to remove it immediately and it will cost $4,000."

The man replies, "Will you take $1,700?"

My point is that if you are comfortable enough with the details of a transaction that you feel you can hold your own against someone that does this day in and day out then this may work for you. Please understand that when I say that there are many non-agents who have enough experience to pull this off. In that case a limited representation listing may be appropriate. But remember, when you are represented your overall liability is significantly reduced and the headaches are minimized.

Best of luck with your sale,
