I'm looking for a buyer's agent who is willing to offer a rebate on the commission.

Answer
Why do you feel you should get a rebate on a buyer's agent commission just because you search for your own property?Over 85% of all buyers start with their own research on the internet & buyers agents do not just present an offer. Who shows you the property, who represents you thru out the whole buying process and has more experience than you at buying properties your REALTOR and the seller pays all the commission so its free to you!!

Mortgage for house purchase from the UK

Answer
ImperialEagleAs an ex-pat living in Fl and a Realtor the process of buying a property in FL is quite straight forward. Firstly you have to decide how you are going to finance the purchase, cash, English or American mortgage, set up an American bank account and use the services of a local Realtor who will guide you thru everything at no cost to you! (Your Realtor is paid by the seller). Your Realtor can find you finance contacts, advise you as a visitor to the U.S.A. that you will probably have to pay at least a 30% deposit, how to transfer your funds, utilities, taxes etc etc. This is a general small overview but gives you an idea that a good local Realtor can help you with everything!! Good Luck.

What are the basic utility and tax costs of an average home ownership in Florida?water,heat,elect

Answer
Tony,Its very difficult for anyone to answer your question because of the large range of answers you can expect. For example are you buying a 1,000 Sq. Ft. home or a 3,000 Sq.Ft. home and in the summer do you like your average room temperature to be 79F or nearer 72F. Have you got lots of children that want to bathe twice a day and is the yard sprinkler system if there is one fed by a well or city water. In other words your monthly electric could be $50 in the winter and $300 in the summer and the same for water $25 and $100. But for the best answer ask your local Realtor when you are going thru the buying process.Best RegardsPaul Whitehouse (Realtor)Power Realty LLCMelbourne, Fl.321-609-1812.

Are all the listings for houses for sale accurate, current and updated? Some websites are outdated.

Answer
Justlooking34Zillow and other national websites accuracy is mainly down to the accuracy of the sources of the info. ie a lot of the info is only updated at the speed of the agent responsible for the listing or the office they work out of. The most accurate info is the one supplied by the local MLS of the area you are interested in. ie always contact a local Realtor.

Looking to buy

Answer
Dear CavalierhomeMay I suggest that the coastal areas near Melbourne are ideal for what you are looking for. We are about an hour from Disney, within sight of all Shuttle and Rocket launches and Brevard County as a whole has 72 miles of very good safe beaches for you to enjoy. I would be happy to help you find a suitable home but obviously require a little more info.Best RegardsPaul Whitehouse(Realtor).
