The idea of buying or selling homes seem incredibly stressful, regardless of whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned veteran.
If you are buying you need decide your budget. Consider how much you’re earning and how much your expenses will be, such as: mortgage, insurance, maintenance, taxes, electricity, HOA, CDD etc. If you are a seller, you need to determine your home’s value based on similar properties in your area and similar upgrades. If you have a unique property this will take more time and research.
You need to understand negotiating power without offending the other party, but at the same time being stern. Off course, you can find a real estate agent who’s willing to do all of the grunt work for you. If you are doing real estate in Florida, whether you are buying or selling a home, make sure you understand the type of relationship you have established with the real estate licensee that you have hired.
Florida is the land of sand, snowbirds — and real estate speculation. Whenever a real estate agent is representing both a seller and a buyer in a real estate transaction, all sorts of conflicts of loyalty and duty arise. After all, the buyer wants to get the property for as low price as he can while the seller wants to sell for the highest sales price offered. Dual agency is jumping right into the middle of that battlefield.
That’s why, Florida has outlawed a real estate agent from acting as the agent for both the seller and the buyer for most transaction types. Also, the amount of commissions is usually dictated by the customs and traditions of the market in the area. The real estate industry is continuously changing, and more agents are willing to negotiate their commissions because of increased competition. But best answer still is: "Find a real estate company that fit your needs"
