PATTISHAP, if you're trying to get in touch with someone call the the Villages head or Talk of the Villages. Someone wanted to get in touch with me & I got an email from the head office, giving me a contact #. No one else saw the contact #. Try that! Good Luck

In a hot market like TV I would recommend anyone should try the FSBO route. I have sold five homes FSBO and bought our Villages villa FSBO. I have read all the replies on this thread and I think the positive ones have covered all the bases pretty well. Contact the title company before you begin advertising and they will walk you through the process. Follow the advice of those who recommend you list the home in the event you have an extra $15K or so to spend on convenience. BTW, I'm a former Realtor.

We really recommend Dan Foster with Grizzard Realty.
Be careful, very careful. Good luck.

This makes no sense. You first say that FSBOs are almost always overpriced, then you say a realtor can get 6% more than the overpriced FSBO price? Two totally contradictory statements.

I don't see a contradiction. If you price a fsbo too high, you probably won't get your price, but you will waste a lot of people's time. I believe that a good realtor can usually get a higher price than the owner can. It is called marketing and sales. I looked at a lot of fsbos before I decided that most people have an unrealistic view of the actual value for their house, and some tend to be greedy. They also seem to think that the buyer should share the commission that they think they are saving. When, in fact, the sales commission is not something the buyer pays. It is always a charge to the seller, and it should be.
Hi selling

Response to selling.
We plan to sell in the near future. Will do by owner and yes, photos do help, so it seems. If we go to a realtor, it will be OUTSIDE, like Dan Foster at Grizzard Realty or others. Good luck.
