Need an agent familiar with the Orlando and surrounding counties.

Answer
As above. May I suggest that you also use Zillow and do some preliminary searching. The homes you find that peak your interest may be in a similar area, which would make searching for a pro a little more refined and helpful. You can search Zillow for a pro by zip code so this will support a local expert. Welcome to Central Florida!

Me my wife and 13 y/o daughter are locating to Florida this September where are the good schools?

Answer
With everything, location, location. Do take note though of the school zones, and know they change. I've included the links to both Orange and Seminole for you too. www.OCPS.org and www.SCPS.org.This should help and SO should your Realtor! Great goof hunting!

FSBO, where can I print a generic real estate contract?

Answer
I'm hopeful that at some time you have been approached by a licensed Realtor, and if so, they would be happy to provide a contract for you. They are willing to do this IF they come from service first and foremost, and most do :)They of course would like to help you sell it if you find trying yourself is not the best solution (and honestly statistics have consistently proven that with an agent you'll actually net more, even with the commission paid). I say this because it's important to know their motivation, but this does not change the fact that almost all will want to help. That's why we love what we do... we get to make a difference!  I hope this helps!

Zestimates: Price History + Tax History

Response
As a whole I have seen Zillow and the Zestimates improve greatly over the last few months, partly due to more homes for sale and closing, as well as the matrics they use conitually getting better. A note to all those using this as a starting oint though; Zillow will never take into consideration the inside of the home, they way it is maintained and even some subtle but importnat improvements. It is a VERY useful ttol, and I use it regaularly, but please get a professional to fine tune it for you. It's your house, your profit (yes the market is going up so I hope you have some for a change! :) )
