Real Estate News Intro to Miami Condos with Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Photo credit: Porsche There’re tons of savvy people who wish to go green by switching to electric vehicles, but not having an EV charging station closer home can really put a dent in plans.

Opinions and Advice How and When to Fire a Real Estate Agent
One of the most important factors to consider when selling your home is the real estate agent that you hire to sell the house for you, as this person needs to be knowledgeable, dependable, easy to work with, and experienced in achieving successful sales that fulfill the seller’s goals. Sadly, many people hire a real estate agent based on factors that aren’t always the smartest. Perhaps the realtor is a friend of your parents, they helped your neighbor buy their home, or they play soccer on weekends with your brother. But the reality is that not all realtors possess the same skill sets. A real estate agent that focuses on representing buyers will certainly possess a different set of skills from one whose primary focus is selling homes and making money for the seller. An agent that works with luxury single-family residences may not have much experience in selling condominium apartments and vice versa. So it’s important to take the time to interview any agent that you plan to work...
