south florida: New Condominium Governance Form Requirement in Florida - 01/01/09 10:03 AM
As we bring in the New Year so do we bring in the new laws and new requirments of 2009. Florida Law Makers see a need to require a document, notice I did not say form, that will become reqired as part of the paper work of any sale that deals with an association. The document is 5 pages that explains in detail all the rights and obligations of the seller, buyer and the association.

south florida: The ugly picture of South Florida Real Estate - 02/16/08 07:04 AM
The chart below is current as of this month. What it is showing is the number of listing on the market (Green), the average price per sale(Yellow), the number of new listings add(Red) and last the number of listing sold (Blue) in the past two year on a monthly period.
