Florida Realtors Mid-Winter Meetings 2014
 
Well, we've officially wrapped up our Florida Realtors Mid-Winter meetings for 2014.  This was my first trip to the meetings as a sitting Director of both our Orlando Regional Realtor Association and Florida Realtors, and it was a pretty good weekend.
 
There were lulls over the past 4 days, to be sure- and I'll be frankly honest in saying that some parts of the weekend were abject bore-fests...bore-a-paloozas.  Aside from the few bore-tastic moments, though, there were a lot of instances that reinforced my knowledge of how much … (2 comments)

Tenant code violations?  Owner pays

Seems there's been a bit of trouble brewing down on Marco Island.  Some of the goings-on with the Code Enforcement folks of this seemingly idyllic area of Southwest Florida should serve as a reminder for homeowners elsewhere, though:  if you rent out your property to tenants who don't comply with codes, you're ultimately responsible for paying any fines that accrue.
In this story, a property owner (technically their daughter) appeared at a code enforcement hearing to answer complaints that their tenant had had committed a number of … (2 comments)

This can be a tough one for some:  telling clients what they really don't want to hear.  It's something we have to do in this business, though.  Whether a listing agent on the sales side of life or a property manager looking to list a rental property, all are best served when clients are provided with current, accurate information and honest assessments....

I've seen it a lot in real estate/property management, but the scenario plays itself out in other facets of life as well:  passing up good while holding out for great leaves one with nothing.
In property management, for instance, an owner with a place on the market and vacant might require that applicants meet a higher credit score than our usual one.  That's well within their prerogative- and some would argue it's human nature that another applicant will soon follow any that are sent on … (2 comments)
