Re: Lawyer to finalize a will

An important criterion in the selection is what area of law the lawyer specializes in. There are those who work on family matters, divorce proceedings, there are those who specialize in criminal cases in the field of economics, someone is engaged in cases related to cars and traffic police. You need to choose a lawyer or even several lawyers who have extensive experience in the field you need. Specialists who offer their services in cases of any profile often do not know any of them perfectly. I can recommend you my favorite company https://www.hm-attorneys.com/st-louis- ... wyer/truck-accident/since they have already helped me solve the road accident problem twice. I hope they can help you.

I would love to hear any stories (most I've heard have been very negative) people have about Foxtons. Granted, they went out of business more than 10 years ago, so that's probably a tall order. Their business model made no sense - while a seller could save a lot because of the lower commissions, what incentive would a buyer have to use them? A real estate transaction has to work from both sides of it to successfully sell a property at a good price and Foxtons couldn't do that with their business model. I remember seeing their small billboards around Jersey City on occasion.

On a somewhat related and funny note, for many years after Foxtons went out of business, I would see their badly faded purple and yellow umbrellas attached to hot dog carts all over Manhattan, presumably purchased in the bankruptcy sale! Haven't been into Manhattan too much lately for obvious reasons, but you may *still* see those umbrellas today.

This is 100% correct. Who works for free? Sales people are motivated by money. Especially in real estate where their commission is their only form of compensation. Don't waste time haggling over a commission. The realtor or broker will not be as motivated to work for you as he or she may be to work for the client who is paying him or her more. How would you feel if your employer kept requesting that you take a cut in pay because he or she can find someone who can do your job for less?

Remember Foxtons? They were one of the original low commission real estate agents that charged 2% and eventually 3% when the 2% commission just wasn't sustainable. In any case, let me put it this way - you get what you pay for. I heard a lot of horror stories with regard to them and then they went out of business entirely when the housing market tanked in 2008 I think.

While many full-service agents will agree to a lower commission than 6% - I've heard some go with 5% from the outset - anything too far below that and I'd wonder how much attention they would give my property. That said, I do know some people who used eRealty or RedFin, where you pay a flat commission of a few hundred dollars plus 3% to be in the realtor's Multiple Listing Service and claim they got the results they desired while saving a lot.

Really, the best thing to do is find an agent that others have highly recommended that will work their hardest to get the highest possible price for the property. Some agents are well worth the 6%, others just get lucky when the home sells quickly, having done hardly any work, but the reality is, while you may want to save on commission, no buyer cares what agent you are using. If you miss out on any potential buyers because your low cost agent didn't market it to enough people, the savings probably isn't worth it.

Thanks for the feedback...

I haven't had to deal with an agent in years. My overall impression of the industry (as a buyer), from past experience, is pretty low.

No-shows for appointments
Trying to sabotage a written contact so not to have to share a commission.
Blatant lying / deception
etc. etc.

I ended up finding an agent that gave me access to the MLS guide (this was before everything was online), I printed stuff out, saw the properties, and gave the agent the ones I wanted to see. Then again.. I was still in my 20s, so nobody took me seriously.

The last sale I did I put an ad in the paper and on the internet and sold it myself. However, I was single then with no kid, so I had more time.

I am putting properties on the market in early summer, after a number of minor upgrades are complete. Just trying to figure out how I am going to go about the sale.

No... last year there was a process in place, working with the Mexican government to process these migrants LEGALLY in Mexico. Despite all the best wishes of the progressives to validate their continuing TDS affliction, there were no "death camps" and and no one was starving in Mexico. Amazing how you lefties have gone silent on current conditions @ SWB. And now Biden wants to restart wall building? Where are the court injunctions?

Instead we now get great progressive intellects like AOC waving her finger and leading a semantics debate about "surges" and "insurgents" and of course global climate change. I have the Border Biden Body Count at about 40 people between multiple SUV crashes, multiple drownings and people just disappearing with coyotes.. of course, the deaths of innocents, must happen in order to balance the social equity scale.

Whatever is going on is a direct result of Trump cutting off aid to the countries in Central America, and prompting a mass migration.

The difference between now and last year is that we just tossed people back over the border, or blocked them in the desert. The pileup of people in our facilities may be a crisis, but at least I know that asylum seekers will have their cases heard instead of illegally being deported or blocked.

And of course, children will not be sent to random places and lost.

Talk to me when you pretend to care about the abuses of the last fur years. Cynical fake concerns don't impress.

Jersey City Makes Top 5 Most Expensive Places to Rent in the US
#19
Home away from home
Home away from home


The general rule to remember when renting is that you pay for location. If a place is highly populated due to its atmosphere and nearby attractions, demand for it is going to be high. When something is in high demand, the price to live there increases, and Jersey City is no exception. Which is why Howmuch.net has recently named Jersey City among the top five most expensive places to rent an apartment in the country.

Ask anyone what they love about Jersey City and they’ll rattle off a list that seems never-ending. Bars, restaurants, and the stunning views will definitely be included. It is home to some of New Jersey’s most notable places and busiest attractions that add to its exciting ambiance. With every turn, Jersey City’s bright lights lead you to a new adventure. What isn’t so fun is how much it costs to live there. Let’s talk about what led Jersey City to rank as the fifth most expensive city in the country to rent.

I wonder (hope) these incidents were bad coincidences. We rely on emergency responders.

I've had to call 911 on numerous occasions in the Heights over 20 years for both crime and medical incidents. Fortunately I've always had the police or the paramedics show up within 10 minutes (max) of calling. When the system works it's truly life saving.

Unless the city government rewrites its rent control laws and allows tax pass alongs, this means nothing. No renter will pay this addition and no affordable housing tenant will pay this either. It is just another tax on the small homeowner.
