sellers: HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS! - 06/01/11 11:37 AM

Growing up in The Bahamas; I have experienced my fair share of HURRICANES.

As children; we were happy to miss school, and excited when a storm threatened
the islands. We secretly admired the steel gray clouds; swollen and heavy with
rain. Screaming every time a thunder roared, or a lightning striked seemed very KoOL        

As I got older I realized the seriousness of hurricanes, and how dangerous, and deadly they can be. My excitement turned to fear pretty quickly, and as a result; I helped my mom prepare for the storms instead of marveling at them.

sellers: 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)

sellers: Miami & the Beaches...... Reasons "King James" chose the Sunshine State - 07/10/10 02:34 AM
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.

One of the best reasons to live in Miami is the tropical balmy weather. During winter the average temperature is around 67 degrees. So on any day of the year you may find yourself indulging in boating, fishing, or water sports such as parasailing, jet-skiing or simply laying on … (0 comments)

sellers: 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)

sellers: 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)

sellers: Chinese Dry Wall...Are You Entitled to a Tax Relief? - 06/03/10 04:20 PM

About two years ago we realized that defective or tainted dry wall from China (Chinese Dry Wall) posed a health risk for home owners. Additionally this refers to dry wall that were not only directly imported from China, but that may have been manufactured in China by US branded companies.
If you own a rent a home that contained Chinese Dry Wall you may have been exposed to various respiratory illnesses including bloody nose, and itchy skin and eyes. Hopefully, you were made aware of this and took the necessary precautions in regard to you and your familys' health.

sellers: Flood Insurance....."Are you covered?" - 06/01/10 05:35 AM

Even though it's not officially summer, preparation for the unpredictable weather that summer brings should be well on the way. In the southeast it's important to prepare for the possibility of tropical storms and hurricanes that are associated with this time of year. Floods are one of the most common natural disasters in the United States and can occur in non coastal communities.
As a homeowner you should check the validity and strength of your home insurance coverage, take time to read the fine print and familiarize yourself with your insurance plan and what you're actually covered for. The … (2 comments)

sellers: CAN SOMEBODY SAY SABOTAGE? - 05/28/08 12:55 AM
I was just catching up on some of the Posts and comments made by our lovely ActiveRain members when I came across a post made by Kevin (the inspector from Ohio). He gave us insight on a situation he experienced while inspecting a vacant home where a tree had fallen in the neighbors yard. He went on to tell us how the exchange initially played out between the Realtor and the neighbor whose yard the tree fell in.
As I read Kevin's post, I couldn't help but think, "how often are we as real estate professionals placed in the middle of situations similar to this, … (4 comments)
