General Discussion / Selling a home - Should I get a realtor
« on: October 22, 2018, 07:38:43 PM »
Iím selling my house, for the last 5 weeks or so I have been trying to do a for sale by owner. Iím listed on Zillow and Trulia. My wife is posting it on WhatsApp groups and Facebook groups. We are getting people to come see the house, even had 2 offers (they fell through cause of some contingencies the buyers wanted).

Iím getting lots of calls from realtors, they keep saying they have buyers, they want to come see the house. When do they come all they do is try to convince me to list with them. I have offered to pay them a buyers commission of 1.75%-2%. Once I officially reject them to list my house with them I usually donít hear back from them.

My question is should I go with a realtor, these days with Zillow and all the social media I just donít see what they would do different. Also paying them a 3-4% commission for a house in Brooklyn seems kinda steep. Any other DDers that sold a house FSBO, any tips you can give me? Itís just so shocking to me that some realtors still want a 6% commission, I have had a few realtors offer me 3%.

General Discussion / Thinking of buying a 2nd home for rental income
« on: December 29, 2015, 01:23:08 PM »
I'm posting this for my brother in law.

Him and his wife make close to 200k a year, they currently save about 4.5k a month, and have about 80k in savings account. They have a house with a mortgage in Brooklyn. They are thinking of buying another house preferably two family and rent out the entire thing. How hard is it to get approved for a mortgage on 2nd property? Is the interest and property taxes deductible? Would it be difficult to hide some of the rental income? Who pays for the heat and water bill?
