Their OPINION was the TV "agents" had very little interest in selling homes that were not new in the new areas and their home was just a second thought for the agent. We bought ours through an outside agent. We also had a TV agent and all she wanted to do was push us into the new Fenney area at that time which we did not want.
We sold our pre-owned home, listed with our original TV sales agent from whom we saw it. it sold before the agents came through, and before the pictures hit the TV web site. Someone must have been talking about it in the sales office. It was a clean, uncluttered designer with many (but not a fantastic amount of) upgrades, had a privacy wall behind it, and some lovely landscaping. I think the extra pantry with coffee station we had built across the back of the kitchen (begonia, like a gardenia but with a golf cart garage) might have done the trick. Only two people viewed it, and both made overprice offers.

I wouldn't hesitate to go with a TV sales agent. Especially Tommy Incorvia (sp) or the one Gracie recommended.

We bought our CYV in the same village of Tamarind Grove, privately. Our luck was the owners had what we wanted, when we wanted it, in the exact spot we wanted, and a friend let us know about it. We bought it long distance, sight unseen, although the friend went through with Facetime. So you might try FSBO. That and TV sales agents would be my preferred choices.
Happiness is when your life on the outside matches your life on the inside.
