real estate: Property tax challenges just got easier - 06/08/09 09:32 AM
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - June 4, 2009 - Home and business owners who think their local tax bill is too high caught a break today when Gov. Charlie Crist signed a bill that makes it easier to challenge how much a property is worth.
Flanked by business and real estate leaders, Crist put his name to HB 521. The bill lowers the burden of proof for owners who dispute property tax assessments to a preponderance of the evidence - a lower standard than the clear and convincing threshold they now must meet to overturn a property appraiser's estimate.
Local governments had successfully … (0 comments)

real estate: The truth about Real Estate Auctions! - 05/19/07 02:11 AM
I found this article in todays newspaper about a recent real estate auction held in Sarasota, FL. When I came across the numbers of the most famous deals I thought my calculator was broken. They sold @ 66% and 54% of the original asking price. Wowww!
Well obviously the company had taken the listings at horrible overpriced values and these couldn't sell. Instead of adjusting the asking price they intended for the fast dollar. IMO the only winner of this auction were the auctioneers as they charge not 6,7 or 8% commission. They charge 15% commission. Taking listings overpriced (to get them) and charge 15% later on. … (4 comments)

real estate: The Advantage of International Marketing - 03/23/07 10:30 AM
Market knowledge (technical)
Whether it's a buyer's market or it's a seller's market doesn't matter. Price is derived by the interaction of supply and demand. The resultant market price is dependant upon both of these fundamental components of a market. An exchange of goods or services will occur whenever buyers and sellers can agree on a price. When an exchange occurs, the agreed upon price is called the "market clearing price".
As a seller we cannot change the supply. There is an amount of similar assets on the market, so the supply is set in stone for us. Of course, you can … (0 comments)
