How LOW can we go? That seems to be the most popular real estate question I hear on a daily basis. Neighbors, friends, newspapers, realtors, mortgage people and even the cashier at the grocery store ask now. Pending foreclosures are coming, adjustable rates are coming due. Banks have changed the lending policies and aren't making loans or even refinancing. Palm beach County real estate seems to be 20% off the highs and the properties still sit and sit and sit. Is it 30% or 40%?.......... Are there people on that proverbial fence? http://rmlsfl.mlxchange.com/Pub/EmailView.asp?r=605513485&s=RML&t=RMLhttp://www.bocairecc.com/Club/Scripts/Home/home.asp

As so many of you know, my granddaughters are involved in our lives, both personally and professionally.  Michelle does a lot of the website content, and putting the ads on the web.  It is important for her to see the homes and have a feel for them.  Recently we went to one of our properties, 17069 Ryton Lane, Hampton Court, Polo Club in Boca Raton to take pictures and Michelle fell in love with this home.  It is great, because having big dreams leads to big realities.  It is fun for us to have the views through her eyes and words.  Here is her vision of the home."The other day I went and looked at a house with my grandparents who work in Quantum One Realty. It was a beautiful home over in Polo Club in Boca Raton.            We arrived there at about 5pm and as we went through the entry...

Why Use a CRS? You have valued clients who are moving to a city in another state. But you do not know a REALTOR® there. How can you find another REALTOR® who cares for their best interests as much as you do? And who'll send you a referral fee promptly when the clients closes on a home? It's easy when you look up CRS Designees, who live all across the country and in virtually every town in the United States. They number more than 39,000. More important, they are pre-qualified for your clients. Because you know they have completed unparalleled training in both education and production to earn the CRS Designation. Like you, they are consummate professionals. And you know your client is being cared for as if you were their REALTOR® in the new city and state.   Annette Failla-Phelps CRS,ABR,...

The Pitfalls of Buying Without an AgentPosted by Roz Bryant under For BuyersYou've got a high speed Internet connection, your own car, and a brain right? So why bother with real estate agents? Nobody's really interested in a "hard sell" these days......Including me, the Realtor.Still, you should know what you're in for when you casually stroll into an open house or sales center without your own agent. You're utterly unrepresented, and here's what that can mean:1) You're vulnerable to the upper hand of an agent who's representing the seller. If you start talking about how much you love the place and your need to move in the next 30 days, the seller's agent will definitely "have your number." These are not inherently bad or unethical people, but they are professionals who know their missi...

Redfin on 60 Minutes: Are Realtors Paid Too Much?May 14, 2007 in General Info + Opinion, National + California News, Buyer Basics, Seller Issues This week, 60 Minutes aired a piece about an online Real Estate company called Redfin, whose extreme "do it yourself" Real Estate transaction services got some valuable airtime to slam the traditional Real Estate business model. Should Realtors at traditional brokers worry? I don't think so.Do-It-Yourself Can Be Penny-Wise and Pound Foolish. Now that we have computers, we don't really need anyone else at all. Robots performing surgery and vending machines spitting out everything from sandwiches to ipods at the airport are real-life examples of technology replacing human interaction. Why, soon, we won't even need to go for a consultation when we...

City of Boca Raton Area Profile Boca Raton Map - Demographics - Strategic Plan - Future of Boca The meaning of the name Boca Raton has always aroused curiosity. Many people wrongly assume the name is simply Rat's Mouth. The Spanish word boca (or mouth) often described an inlet, while raton (literally mouse) was used as a term for a cowardly thief. But the "Thieves Inlet," Boca Ratones, appeared on eighteenth century maps associated with an inlet in the Biscayne Bay area of Miami. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, the term was mistakenly applied to Lake Boca Raton, whose inlet was closed at the time. The "s" and later the "e" were dropped from this title by the 1920s, yet the correct pronunciation remains Rah-tone. The earliest known inhabitants of the Boca Raton area were the ...
