A lot more information than you currently are showing.

1. Name (everyone likes to know who they are working with)
2. Address, (everyone likes to know what they are selling)
3. Description of the property
4. Motivation
5. Price you hope to gain (don't necessarily need to share that publicly, but it's nice for an agent to know if their sellers are realistic)
6. Your expectations of your agent

Knowing these things can save a lot of heartache on both sides down the road. Below find some interesting tips on pricing and selling your home, I'm available for any questions.

Typically if split correctly, a 7% commission will make you look more desirable than the competition. Ethically a real estate agent is not supposed to look at commission first when deciding what to show a client, but people are people and it happens sometimes. With a 3.5% offering, you look VERY intriguing to ALL agents. The proper split should be giving out 3.5% to buyers agent and sellers agent keeping 3.5%. I hope this answers your question. Just ask what the split is before you sign the contract. Here in NJ it is BOLD on our contracts so you can not miss it, but I am not sure how it is in Florida. Best of luck! ... more

Hello, my name is Michael Collins and I am with Maxim Realtors. There are many mobile home parks in the North Fort Myers area that are very nice. There are some that you actually own the land. I would be happy to assist you with your search. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss. I'm sure that we can find one that would consider owner financing. I can be reached at 239-834-3664.

Looking forward to speaking with you soon!

Have a great day!

Lehigh has, like all areas, good and bad parts. Many areas are still undeveloped. There are less rules about how you maintain your property than say, Naples or Cape Coral. Personally, I think living in SE Lehigh is an affordable alternative if you are working in N Naples. ... more

Monika Wilson answered:
Hello, I believe the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area is still the place to be for investment. A cap rate of around 10% is still possible with certain properties. There are still single family homes and multi family homes well worth looking into. Vacancy rates are not very high for good properties in good locations. I am a Realtor in Cape Coral/Fort Myers since 1997. ... more

I live in the community next to this property. There are no shuffle boards, but they do have a community pool and club house with monthly activities. This property is 1/4 mile from Rutenburg park which offers baseballs fields, tennis courts and a play ground. Quiet area and close to everything. If you have any question feel free to contact me.
