fl real estate: What "ReallY" sells a Home? - 09/18/10 04:08 AM
This question often comes up in a lot of real estate conversations. While most people focus on the actual house itself; painting outside and inside, rearranging furniture, removing clutter, cleaning windows and appliances, updating kitchens and bathrooms; which is a "must" when you're serious about selling your home, all too often the outside of the house is overlooked.

Painting, pressure washing and clearing out the garage are obvious "no-brainers", but unfortunately not much attention is paid to the yard. I'm not just talking about mowing the lawn and removing weeds. To really sell your home you must take it a step … (3 comments)

Sun, Sand, and Sea are just a few reasons basketball sensation LeBron James chose to sign with The Miami Heat. South Florida has thousands of miles of beaches; Miami and South Beaches being amoung the most popular. If you've never visited Miami and the Beaches; now is as good a time as any.

fl real estate: Short Sale vs Foreclosure - 06/19/10 04:32 AM
It seems that a lot of home owners are unaware of their options or what they should do once they find they are unable to keep up with their mortgage payments.Regardless of your situation you should always contact (do this face to face if at all possible) your financial institution and let them know what is going on with you before things get out of hand.

It could be a long and frustrating process to even get face to face and speak with somebody, but the last thing you want to do is leave a voice message thinking … (1 comments)

fl real estate: Buyers & Sellers....Have U HEARD?? - 06/11/10 11:01 AM

About a month has past since Coldwell Banker initiated it's nationwide "Buyer Bonus". On April 30th of this year the government closed it's doors on the Federal Homebuyer Tax Credit. Because of this, Coldwell Banker decided to implement it's own incentive of sorts to homebuyers, and sellers too for that matter.
The program works by sellers of residential property (REOs and shortsales do not qualify due to the distressed nature that accompany these properties) agreeing to participate in the promotion by offering buyers a benefit of up to 3% credit at closing toward … (3 comments)

fl real estate: FHA LOANS- THE PERFECT FIT? - 05/22/10 04:28 PM
Recently we've been seeing and reading about the housing market slowly making a comeback; that is, more real estate transactions are being closed now than they did a year ago.
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) plays a key role in the "turn around" we're currently experiencing. FHA really isn't a type of loan, it's actually insured loans that the Federal Housing Administration has agreed to reimburse the lender for financial losses, if the borrower default on the loan.
For buyers that are unable to qualify for conventional loans, FHA mortgages are more attractive, and the terms of the loan are more flexible.  These … (6 comments)

fl real estate: Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).....A Boost for Homebuyers - 04/05/10 03:31 AM
This past weekend I posted a blog regarding the $8,000 tax credit for first time homebuyers and touched on other government funded programs; particularly the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).
There has been a lot of hype about government funded programs and stimulus' since we've entered the recession. The $8,000 tax credit for first time home buyers seem to be the most popular; however it's not the only program available out there for home buyers. Therefore; I thought I would address one in particular that is available in almost every neighborhood yet a lot of people seem to be unaware of it. It's called The Neighborhood … (0 comments)
