My first night as a bartender at Ariani restaurant www.chefdario.com, my first guests at the bar, I meet a Realtor couple team on thier way to a showing.   We chatted a bit about the market and the changes it's been going through, they said I was brave to get in now.   So I told them my firm specalizes in negotiating short sales, foreclosure or pre-forclosures, and that most of our buyers are coming from other realtors.We created an excellent synergy as they, like many realtors, don't want to deal with short sales and would love to refer them to a specalist.   I in turn will keep them informed of our new offerings, many of which don't hit the MLS at all.Any one who would like to be added to my hotsheet list, please shoot me an email at mikeurbinato@gmail.com and I'll get you in the loop...

Wow, what an unexpected event tonight in Cape Coral. A Tornado hit in SW Cape Coral tonight around Skyline Blvd. According to the news there was only 1 minor injury & no deaths.But 59 homes were damaged or destroyed. Many cars were destroyed as well as power lines down & carports mutilated.There was also damage on Ft. Myers Beach, FL as well. The funnel cloud moved through quickly knocking out power & damaging structures.Most of Cape Coral now has power & they expect to restore power to the remaining homes by tomorrow morning. I live about 2 miles away from the hardest hit areas & luckily we have no damage in my neighborhood or house.Just a reminder to take these warnings seriously. A hardhat like the one to the right is not enough - make sure you head warnings & get into an interior ro...

Lee County, Florida Property Taxes <!-- body,td,th { font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif; font-size: 16px; color: #003399; } --> If you own property in Lee County, Florida you should have received your new trim notice. If you do you would have noticed a pretty significant decrease in your taxes. I think the biggest reductions are on vacant land. FYI, vacant land in Cape Coral maxed out in 2005 about $90-100,000 & decreased in 2006/2007 to about $25,000 for the same lot worth $100,000 then. Mind you, vacant land in Cape Coral had values of $1,000-5,000 from the early 80s up until about 2002 when we watched them steadily increase up to those highs in 2005. Here's a couple of samples:   Vacant lot - Cape Coral Last year valued at $72,000 Taxes $1,292.43 This year valued...

         Joe Kendall Realtor with Sandals Realty a Waterfront and Foreclosure Specialist writes, Home owners should always look at all options before losing their home back to the bank from a hardship, maybe it's a health issue or a work related/financial problem. I have several years of experience in dealing in Pre-foreclosures and short sales in Michigan and Florida. The future could get even harder to buy a home with possible higher interest rates as the Sub Prime Mortgage Market continues to tighten their restrictions. This should give you even more motivation to keep your house! Save your credit and get out of your situation the best you can.  I can help you with the questions to ask your bank? The forms you need to fill out and allow me to help you work toward selling your home an...
