Gated vs Non Gated Communities in Delray Beach FL
 
People are often confused when they come to Delray Beach FL, or one of the neighboring cities, about where to buy a home.  They've seen commercials on TV, their friends have told them about this or that community, but they're really not sure.  It can definitely be overwhelming, especially if you're not familiar with the area.

delray beach: Honey, let's not use a Realtor! - 08/18/16 08:23 PM
If you are thinking of selling your house without a realtor, please take a few minutes to read Andrea Swiedler 's post.  There is a lot more involved in selling a house.  While Andrea Swiedler is in Connecticut, the same holds true for Boca Raton or Boynton Beach, Florida. 
You need a real estate professional to sell your home.  There is much more to it than meets the eye.
The idea behind not using a real estate agent in the purchase and sale of a home is a simple one, to save yourself some money. I get that.  Buyers think they will … (13 comments)
