miami shores: Certificate of Re-Occupancy - 09/06/06 02:03 AM
I don't know if you have this in your market but in South Florida we have something in some Municipalities, known as re-occupancy. In Miami Shores, North Miami, Hialeah, Miami Springs and other ares we have to get a form signed by the buyers notorized by the sellers and dropped off to building and zoning office. They than set up an appointment to come out and look at the property. They are making sure that if it is zoned single family that there is one kitchen in the home.
The charges are anywhere from $75.00 to $150.00 for the re-occupancy certificate. You have to have … (3 comments)

miami shores: Giving Back and having fun - 09/02/06 03:49 AM
In two weeks I will be heading down to Key West on the Peterson's Harley Davidson's Poker run. This has been put on for the last 33 years this will make 34. The monies use to go to MDA but in recent years has been going to Diabetis research. It is of course a unbelievable great time and the ride is second to none.
I have been giving back in my Real Estate career since I got into it. I am very fortunate to make the kind of money that I do and feel that it is important to give back. I … (2 comments)

miami shores: Bad press in the local newspaper - 09/02/06 03:08 AM
Every wonder why the market changed so fast? I know why in South Florida we had a storm called Whilma. After that our market started to rebound when our local press (The Miami Herald, Sun Sentinel) wrote articles that the buble was going to burst in the real estate market. Interest rates were on the rise and basiclythis was not the time to buy.
I should have taken a vacation than. The market just fell out. Buyers were hard to come by and of course thesame numbers of listings were coming on the market but with no buyers to buy. This of … (5 comments)

miami shores: Title companies vs Real Estate Attorneys - 09/01/06 08:23 AM
I have used many Title companies over the years. To date I have had nothing but problems. Rude people, not trained people, eagar to get you off the phone but not eager to do the job. I have a list of bad Title companies and if a client offers on one of my listings and is thinking of using one of those companies it becomes part of the negotiating process. I am tired of being talked to as you are the Realtor OK will call you back. In ALL CASES if we don't follow up on a daily basis the deal … (2 comments)

miami shores: Real Estate Professionalizm - 09/01/06 02:07 AM
In todays market with so many properties and so few Buyers I have a question? Why is it so hard to make appointments to see properties?
We all are trying to make business happen but there is a lot of agents who can't be bothered to answer calls for showings. It can take 24 hours for an agent to call back when setting up appointments. You would think that we are all in the same business and that we want to make our life and the life of fellow agents easier. When setting appointments we put a list of properties (That are paying … (6 comments)

I thought I would take the time to track a real estate sign. The following takes place in Hollywood Florida.
I listed Client #1) a property with great sign exposer on Hollywood Blvd near the intracoastal waterway. From that sign I got a call from a buyer(Client #2) who had a property he wanted to sell three blocks away. I listed that property and the buyers (Client#3) who came to see the property came through me. I sold both sides of that transaction and than wrote a contract with that seller Client #2)  for the property on Hollywood Blvd.
Sold both sides … (2 comments)

I worked a referral from the head coach of an NBA team. I picked up the client three different trips to South Florida. She was in a divorce situation and was looking for a nice place to raise her child but close enough to go out to meet someone.

On the second trip again I picked her up at the airport took her to her hotel to check in. she … (15 comments)

miami shores: To lend or not to lend, that is the question - 08/29/06 02:58 AM
At the end of 2004 a client referred me family member moving down to the North Miam Beach area. I had one of my Buyers agents take her out and in four showings find a property she liked in Eastern Shores. After a long negotiating process we came to price and terms for the transaction.
Our client was short $3,000. dollars. After trying every negotiating tatic I decided to loan the buyer the money to close. It was for two reasons, first my buyers agent made the deal, and second my referral was happy I took care of there friend. Five months went by with checks … (3 comments)
