The best way would be to speak with a Realtor. You could also have it professionally appraised.

Hi Juanito,

My best advise is to let a professional agent work for you, you may have to pay them for the job, however, statistically, a Realor will sale for 14% more than a by-owner, thus you will end getting more money ,, and without the hassle and expenses related to the sale process, sign postings, showings, inspections etc.
Feel free to call me for a consultation with absolutely no obligation

Happy New Year!!!!

Thank you, Fabio

If you own a single family home a good courb appeal is very important , it is the first impression a buyer will have.Weill maintained homes get more showings . Make sure the prize is reasonable ,if you prize it too high it will just sit on the market. Fix all the little problems before selling and make sure they are no open permits. Any other questions ? Please feel free to call.

Bet regards

It would depend upon the BUYER:
Some people hate Garage Conversions, (I, being one of them).
Your prospective Buyers may like the Master Suite and love the Conversion.
Some will not.
If you are doing this for YOURSELF, and plan to stay there a while; go for it!
If you are doing this for RESALE; I would not advise it.

Comps should be sold properties within the last 6 months. Sometimes they will go up to 1 year if there were no sales that were comparable to the subject property but that is usually in areas where houses do not close in the winter months. ... more

Robinson Seda Jr answered:
In today's market a lot of developers are financing the construction of their projects using the deposits from their buyers. As a spec home is conditioned to your liking and the developer will need to do a lot of upfront payments for the permit fees, underground utilities, impact fees, etc., it is not unreasonable for them to ask for the 10%.

What I suggest is that you conduct a background on the developer and have an attorney review the contract.

Also, make sure that timelines are clear on the contract such as duration of construction, etc. so that the developer does not take 2-years to build a home that on average should take 4 - 6 months.

good luck!

Ann Ryan answered:
Eduardo, there are a lot of factors to this that are best explored via a conversation, rather than a guess made based on the MLS. Particularly important is why are you selling and how fast do you need to sell (Is this a short sale). That said, 4 bedroom homes in your zip code have sold between $61K (tear-down foreclosure) and $535K (gated Coral Way Estates property). I can see no sales of neighboring 3 or 4 bedroom homes in the last 3 months. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
In a nutshell you can rent it out and hope the market returns in the future, you can sell the home and write a check for any shortfall or you can list the home for sale as a short sale.
The short sale option carries with it several ramifications you need to be fully aware of. It will affect your credit, your capacity to obtain another mortgage in the near future and you may be financially responsible for some or all of the deficiency depending on the lender(s) involved.
If you pursue the short sale become fully informed, consult an attorney and only hire an experienced short sale agent. Someone who just took a class on short sales, but never closed one may not be your best choice.
