When selling a luxury home, a real estate agent must have a comprehensive marketing plan/system and cannot list a luxury home, wait and hope it sells. Description from rochesterrealestateblog.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
I never understood why you shouldn't buy a house unless your planning on staying 5-10 years and have a 20% down payment. But now I do! Without a 20% down payment you will pay over 100k more in the long run (interest/fees, etc.) but most houses won't accumulate 100k in value until at least 5-10 years.
