Opinions and Advice Selling a Home For Sale By Owner: 11 Things All Home Sellers Should Know
When selling your home, it’s understandable that you’ll want to make as much money as possible from the sale, and you may be weighing the pros and cons of saving a little money by selling the home yourself without hiring a real estate agent. Real estate agents typically charge a 5-7% commission on the sale price of your home, so you could potentially save thousands of dollars by selling the home yourself, and this is the most common reason why home sellers make the decision to sell on their own. But is it a sound decision? While saving money on commission sounds like it could be a benefit, there are actually several drawbacks to selling the home yourself unless you happen to be very well trained and experienced in the field of real estate, have lots of time on your hands, are a whiz at marketing, and have some legal know-how.

The Future Miami Riverwalk is Taking Forever
Brickell The Future Miami Riverwalk is Taking Forever
The Miami River meanders through the heart of Miami, diving the twin, skyscraper-strewn districts of Downtown and Brickell before it bends northwest and heads toward the airport. Planners intend the river to someday have a riverwalk, also known as the Miami River Greenway, running along both sides, much like the one that already exists along the New River in Fort Lauderdale. An idea that has been in the works for decades, the river walk will someday add life and vitality to the downtown core. But the river walk is a more complicated proposition than its sibling, the Miami bay walk. The river walk has more obstacles and, unlike with the bay walk, there is no one central section that is mostly complete to serve as a catalyst for the rest.     The closest it gets to a functioning river walk is the area where the river opens to the bay. There the river walk is wide and inviting, festooned with public art as it wraps around either side of the gap. On the south side of the river, it...
