Your first step should be to talk to a bank regarding whether you can qualify for a loan. There are programs out there that may provide some assistance to first-time homebuyers through the State of Florida. However, more than anything else, buying right now will allow you a much nicer home for a lower cost. ... more

Santiago Vitagliano answered:
Commercial Real estate agents are typically paid a commission upon the signing of a lease. The commission is paid by the owner of the building and is typically paid one-half upon lease execution and one-half upon tenant occupancy. The commission is most often calculated as a percentage of the lease value and usually ranges between four and six percent. For example, if a tenant signs a 3-year lease for 2,000 square feet at $20 per SF per year, a 5% commission equals $6,000 (3 yrs x 2,000 SF x $20 x 5%).

To further complicate matters, the agent's Broker is the one that gets paid the commission. The Broker then pays a portion of the commission to the agent, depending on the agent's split. Commission splits range anywhere from 50/50 (most common) to 90/10 in favor of the agent. Using the above example, the agent would receive anywhere from $3,000 to $5,400.

Here's the thing... there's not a single unit on the market that fits that description. North Port to Miami Beach is a pretty unusual move... can you give me a hint as to what you're after, and maybe we can come up with a different, but equally appealing, option?

Normally it goes like this:

850 - 780 excellent
780-750 great
750-720 good
680-720 ok
650-680 needs help
below 650 - need to work with a credit repair agency or read a few books about credit repair.

However credit is not the only factor when renting, so don't be discouraged. Things like credit can be overcome by offering to place 2 months of deposit and looking for a for rent by owner instead of an apartment complex.

Please feel free to contact me at (407) 325-4344 to discuss further but most places along the beach are desirable. If you're interested in a single family home we would look into Surfside. Coral Gables is probably the best 'family area' in my personal opinion where you will be able to purchase a nice single family home. Great community! ... more

It's probably best to talk to a lawyer, because even if we did have more detail, it's really a legal question that depends on your specific condo documents.

Juxin, Trulia isn't really a forum for this sort of thing. You'll be better off on Craig's list. However, you need to be careful, because there is a lot of fraud. Before you agree to any long-term arrangement, make sure you've seen the place, that you will be safe there, and that the person actually has some right to actually rent it out. ... more
