sarasota florida real estate: An Investors Dream on Longboat Key Florida - 10/26/08 02:06 AM

Here's a fabulous opportunity to purchase an investment for now and the future!  This old florida concrete block home is situated beautifully on a deep water canal front lot (almost 10,000 sq ft).

sarasota florida real estate: Can Peacock Poop Kill A Real Estate Deal?! - 10/28/07 01:15 AM
A Peacock Kills the Deal...
As I was unlocking the door (2nd showing) to this beautiful home on the north tip of our glorious Longboat Key, the buyer, who had taken a stroll out back, came running around the front and said, "Nicki, don't bother with turning on the lights..." and as he was saying it, I opened the front door and there they were, female Peacocks sitting on, pooping on and dropping their feathers on, the beautiful architectural balcony of the $1.2 Million Dollar home.
..."that killed it for me,"he said.
He said when he went out back, they were sitting on the … (3 comments)

sarasota florida real estate: No Closing and Buyers are In - 08/24/07 09:34 AM
Okay, it happened.  In a previous post, I asked for help in convincing a seller NOT to allow the buyer in before closing on her Sarasota Florida home and I want to thank you all for your comments.
Do you think the Seller listened?  Instead, she not only let them in her garage, but allowed them to put their things inside the house.  I documented everything and sent her in writing my stance on the matter.
Here's what happened.  Day of closing, the buyer walked.  Since all contingencies were met including a loan commitment, he released the $30,000 escrow deposit and requested that … (18 comments)

sarasota florida real estate: Help me! I Have a Seller Who Insists on Letting the Buyer In... - 08/15/07 10:54 AM
...Before the closing.  Finally, after four months of heavily marketing the home at 718 Shadow Bay Way, in Sarasota Florida. I have a great contract to purchase this beautiful piece of Real Estate!  However, the buyer somehow got in touch (by phone) with the seller and asked her if he could move stuff into the garage BEFORE the closing.  She told him YES.  Then she asked me if it was okay.  I told her NO WAY and immediately contacted the agent for the buyer.  I told him to PLEASE sit down with his buyer and explain that in no way, should he … (12 comments)

sarasota florida real estate: In the House before Closing....cont'd - 06/03/07 10:00 AM
You guys may remember my little story about the folks who wanted to install a carpet BEFORE closing on the house in Sarasota Florida. 
Well, the seller signed the real estate closing papers last Thursday and the walk through for the buyers was supposed to be at 6:00 pm on that same day.  The buyer's agent called several times to tell me that no, they couldn't make it at 6:00, but perhaps 7:30..then no they couldn't make it at 7:30, but perhaps 9:00...Then finally, could we just do a quick walk through at 6:30 in the morning?  I agreed to it.

sarasota florida real estate: A Realtor's Lament - 05/11/07 08:54 AM
Tuesday, I have a closing in Sarasota, Florida.  The couple is divorced, but both are very nice...just not to each other!
The Ex-husband was here from up north to "help" the ex-wife move.  He went on a bender.  The ex-wife had to move stuff out herself.  The other night, a neighbor called me to tell me they found the man in the middle of the street, lying face down and groaning.  There was a box of take-out nearby.  The kindly neighbors took him to his house (which is her house, but she moved out and left him 1 bed).  They cleaned him … (3 comments)
