waterfront: IRS Liens and Real Estate - 03/06/11 02:29 AM
The IRS is doing their part to help the real estate market.  They now will not file a lien on a property unless its for $10,000 or above. This limit used to be set at $5,000. This will help many property owners get their homes sold.

waterfront: Don't Overpay for Your Property - 02/28/11 02:33 AM
Its amazing to me how many people actually overpay for a property, especially in this market because they are not informed or they are not working with a Realtor who can provide them with the correct information about the property. 
Most of the time the buyers that overpay are the ones that are trying to get a great deal!  Whether its a foreclosure property, a short sale or a regular sale you have to be informed and be working with a Realtor who knows the market and can give you the correct information.

waterfront: Pay Your Rent on Time - 02/23/11 01:19 AM
Many people are currently renting with the hopes of building credit and buying a home sometime in the near future.  Its important to make your rental payments on time especially if you live in a large rental community that is managed by a management company. 
These types of communities are expected to start reporting to the credit agencies in the near future and late payments will show up on your credit report.

Mortgage rates are ticking up slightly and this trend is expected to continue throughout the year.  This is important if you are a borderline buyer as just a little increase will really effect your payment.  Keep an eye on this and if you are a serious buyer its time to wrap it up and take advantage of some of the best buyer conditions of all time.

The Boca Raton Riviera development located East of the intracoastal waterway and just North of Palmetto Park Rd. is a great community that is just steps away from the beach and is one of the original developments in the area. If you like the beach this location is for you and with a market like the one we are in now its a great time to buy in a neighborhood where in a stronger market inventory is low and the prices are much higher.
The neighborhood features waterfront mansions in the 3 to 4 million dollar range as well as nice … (0 comments)
