When I sold my home in Florida, I "interviewed" several realtors. Each one gave me an estimate of my costs based on the sales price. I did select "Assist2Sell" in Florida, because they are very big and the commission was $2995. We had a signed purchase agreement in 3 weeks. They worked hard and did a fine job. We even sold the home for more than the asking price. The cost estimate my agent gave me was right on target.
Taxes in Florida are due in December for the prior 12 months.
When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
