real estate: I Love Real Estate! - 04/01/09 07:11 AM
While everyone else is looking doom and gloom. I am running around like a cheerleader, go team go. Sales in my market are off the chart. Contract pendings have doubled over this time last year. Granted quite a few are short sales, but eventually they do get to closing. The media is even jumping on board. I read an article today that the housing market had a "Surprise jump in Home Sales". Now this is noteworthy news. Lets ring the bell loud, the home buyers are coming, the home buyers are coming. I see a great real estate Spring and Summer. I'm … (7 comments)

real estate: County Code Enforcement and Vacant Short Sale Properties - 02/12/09 02:10 AM
Swimming pools and spas on short sale properties are starting to give me grief. Just when I thought nothing else could slow down the short sale process for me, WHAM!, here comes County Code Enforcement slapping fines on bug infested swimming pools and spas. It doesn't take long for a pool or spa to turn green and ugly when the power has been turned off. Sellers don't want to deal with maintaining pools or spas after they vacate their homes. These fines have to be paid before you close on the property. Seller has no money and the bank doesn't want to … (1 comments)

real estate: 2009 is Starting off Great in My Market Area - 01/30/09 12:52 AM
2009 is starting off great in my market area, Riverview, Ruskin, Gibsonton, Apollo Beach & Sun City Florida. Over 206 homes have gone contract and 109 homes have closed since Jan 1, 2009. Mortgage rates are helping drive these sales as well as low home prices. Based on whats happening in January, I would say the rest of 2009 should be great. I'm Happy!

real estate: Short Sales - 12/29/08 05:54 AM
I have had great success lately with getting short sales approved by mortgage companies in record time. Recently, I had one approved in 10 days. I think that mortgage companies are finally getting their act together and getting short sales approved in less than 3 to 4 months. I want to thank the hard working loss mitigation specialist that are getting short sales approved in record time.

real estate: Property Taxes Hillsborough County Florida - 09/04/08 06:31 AM
I recently received my TRIM notice and was pleased to see that I am going to pay less in property taxes this year. Obviously Amendment 1 that was approved by voters on Jan 29, 2008 on property taxes is working. Owning a home is becoming affordable again in Hillsborough County Florida. Home prices are pretty close to bottoming out, mortgage rates are at an all time low, and now property taxes are affordable. WOW! What a great time to buy a home.

real estate: First Blog - 08/12/08 07:21 AM
This being my first BLOG on Active Rain. I would like to dedicate it to all the hard working real estate agents that are helping people buy and sell properties all over the world.
I am a real estate brat. My parents have been Realtors for over 23 years. My grandfather was a real estate agent for over 40 years. So needless to say I was pretty much born into real estate. I am very fortunate that I didn't have to recreate the wheel to be successful in this business. I have learned a lot from family about how to be … (12 comments)
