Chamber Breakfast with Senator Jeremy Ring - 06/26/11 10:39 PM
I was at a recent Chamber of Commerce breakfast where Senator Ring was the guest speaker. I have received his newsletter in the past and enjoyed it, but when he gets up to speak, I enjoy the information even more. Senator Ring with President, Cindy Brief and 2011 Chair, Wendy King The following are excerpts that I took from the presentation. They were poignant to me.... On the positive side:I like how he described the technology corridor of Silicon Valley and how Florida has the same potential (with great effort and work to be done to get there, but (1 comments)

Why is the FHA 203K Loan so Misunderstood (Maligned)? - 06/13/11 03:19 PM
I like what Dee Dee says here. The 203K loan is a good program for repairing an under valued home. In the end you will have a new home at market value. Joy Via Deborah "Dee Dee" Garvin New American Mortgage (New American Mortgage): I have written several articles on the FHA 203K loan and continue to believe it is the most under used, misunderstood, and absolutely the most creative finance product available in todays’ real estate market.

DO I NEED AN ATTORNEY TO CLOSE MY HOME PURCHASE? - 06/13/11 03:03 PM
Yes and No. From our Past Experience & our Team strategy, we like to base our decision on how well the negotiations have gone during the home offer process. Keep in mind this applies to Florida for the most part. Some states require Attorneys to close the real estate transaction. There are transactions where everyone is reasonable, they play nice together and there are transactions where too many of the players have personal agendas and egos that get in the way of the progress. In Florida, a title company or an Attorney can process your closing, and many title companies are owned or operated by Attorneys. (3 comments)
