People ask me all the time whether it costs anything for buyers to work with a Realtor. Usually, the answer is no. In the state of Florida, commissions are typically paid by the seller. This means that having an experienced Realtor by your side, which is an essential component to your success, comes at no cost. Having the guidance of a real estate professional is crucial if you want to earn the best possible deal.

What can you expect to pay in terms of closing costs when it comes time to sell your home? This is a question on the minds of many sellers, so let’s get to the bottom of it.


The first cost to consider when selling is, obviously, the expense of paying off your current mortgage. By taking care of this, you’ll be able to pass the property on free and clear. Also, here in Florida, we may lack a state income tax, but we do have a Documentary Stamp tax on real estate, which costs 70 cents for every $100 of the purchase price. 


Florida home sellers will also need to account for the cost of a tax and lien search (approximately $250) and a title search. In Broward County, these are typically counted as a seller's expense, but this can be negotiated.

It’s time for another market update for the third quarter of 2018. For the purpose of this blog, we’re only going to be talking about single-family homes in the city of Coral Springs today.


When compared to the third quarter of 2017, the number of homes we saw come on the market in the third quarter of 2018 is up 9.2%. At the same time, the number of closed sales is down by 3.7% during that time frame.


The median price now sits at $410,000, which is up 5.81% from the $387,500 mark it was at during third quarter of 2017. The average days on market is down to 24 days. Homes are still selling quickly, there are just fewer of them selling overall.


In a balanced market, we will see about six months’ worth of inventory. This means that if no more homes hit the market, it would take six months for all the homes on the market to sell. ...

Home staging is an essential component to the listing process. This important step can help you attract buyers, sell more quickly, and, ultimately, earn top dollar for your property. For this reason, I recently met with staging expert Bridget King of Captiva Design so she could share some insight on this essential real estate process.


Bridget has had a star-studded track record of success in the staging industry. In fact, you may recognize her from her HGTV appearance, when she helped actress Gabrielle Union with her home transformation. With credentials like that, I think it’s quite clear that Bridget knows what she’s talking about.


So, that said, there are two steps Bridget says you’ll need to take to get started on your staging journey:
