In your case I would do a full blown appraisal, and not just a CMA. There is a reason banks use appraisals and not CMAs when approving a loan. This is just my opinion.

What is your title company telling you, they should be addressing this issue for you? I also own a title company but I would need more information to answer your question. Who filed the notice, you or the association? Has the work been completed? If you filed, normally, you (as the owner) can serve a Notice of Termination on the contractor and lienors (if there are any that have given notice) and record it, if the work has been completed or if the work ceased before completion.

Another option, if the contractors are cooperative, they would sign a contractors affidavit, you attach it to the Notice of Termination and file both. These are normal situations, but I would need more information to directly answer your question.

Most agents I talk to are motivated by price right now, if you are over priced they feel they are wasting their time. The better the price the faster it will sell.

You can do a lot of research on agents over the internet, type in their name and phone number into google. Then see what kind of advertising they do, how many sites are they on? Are the ads well written? Do they re-post often? Do your research then start calling agents. ... more

No...those are not "sales" those are Quitclaims.
Often someone gets married or divorced and they need to add/subtract their husband/wife from the deed.
Or a child is added on for estate purposes.

"Get our of your debts but buy it back at a cheap price?" is fraud
it is not arms length from one family member to another and therefore all parties in the transaction would go to jail. In this state, they do not take that lightly... there were literally hundreds of people arrested for mortgage fraud last year. There was one bust that got over 50 people all at once in a string of transactions.

Also - the foreclosure process will extend to ANYONE on the deed if the lien from the mortgagee (bank) is not paid off. So if a home is in foreclosure and you just transfer the deed, then you'll be in the mix as well.

There have been 60 sold condos in Kings Point from October 2008 to now. Sale Prices range from

$10,000 for a 1/1 726 SF in Brittany
$40,000 for a 2/2 883 SF in Seville
$109,000 for a 2/2 1200 SF in Capri

It would all depend on what model you had, the # of bedrooms/bathrooms, square footage, etc. I would be glad to provide you with a free CMA for your home. Feel free to call or email me.

Marilyn Farber Jacobs answered:
To sell, you must price it low by getting comparables from a real estate agent to know what recent sales are in the neighborhood. If you prefer, you can rent out the property for a year and then see how the market is to sell. If you want me to help, I'll be happy to do the comps and to list your home and do my best to sell it. Have just recently sold 2 listings of mine, and today I am writing a contract on a 3rd listing. Right now sales are HOT but again, the price has to be realistic, and somewhat above what you expect to sell the house for, as it is rare to see a sale that goes for the list price in this market. Marilyn Jacobs, 561-988-0070. Happy to be of help. ... more

Hi Natalie,
Many RE Pros will not answer this question on a public forum because they do not want to violate any anti-trust laws. But, if you call several Realtors in your area and ask them what their fees are, most will tell you an exact number or a range. Once you repeat the process 5 or 6 times, you will begin to see a pattern. It is important to gain an understanidng of what the listing agent is providing you in exchange for the fees charged. i.e. a low fee for nothing could be money wasted ,,,,, a higher fee for hardly any services might not be a worthwhile investment.......but a higher fee for services rendered that will promote, advertsie, protect and guide may be a worthwhile investment. Fees can range from a few hundred to many thousands. When comparing, make an effort to compare services and fees.

Good Luck.

Marilyn Farber Jacobs answered:
Keep in mind that this is a brutal market, sales going for units that are the lowest priced properties in their communities. Perhaps even then she will still be making a profit over and above what she paid for it. I'd be happy to be of help here with listing and selling her unit. Go to and scroll down to the bottom of the home page, under affordable properties. Perhaps her community is a similar one. Email me at for any questions or information. The market is picking up now, so it may be a very good time to sell.
