The housing market is booming across the state, but how can you make sure you're getting the most home for your money?

From the Keys to Broward County, prices for homes are increasing by as much as 30%. Condos have also been going up in price. John Taylor, President of Troubadour Realty, says buyers are experiencing a historic market.

As far as foreclosures and short sales go, Taylor says they're almost nonexistent. While everyone is looking for a deal, properties are going for top dollar. So what do you need to be competitive in this market?

"Unfortunately there's a lot of misinformation and bad practices done by the local agents," Taylor says.

For instance, some agents will require cash where it's not necessary. Taylor says you would only need cash for a home that's uninsurable or has severe defects. Things like this push homeowners further from opportunities.

"When you do have financing, you can leverage an appraisal," he says. "If you guarantee a small amount of cash against an've ensured that that transaction will move forward, most likely."

Taylor can provide everything you need to sell your house. He helps you sell your house, with a listing commission of just 1%.
