Hi folks. Here's a random list of things that will help Sellers and Agents with their Short Sales. Be prepared to "participate in the loss" by making a cash contribution and/or signing a promissory note at closing. This is especially true if the property is not your primary residence. You're going to have to move and start paying rent at some point. Start setting that money aside now to use as a cash contribution if needed.  Open every piece of mail from your Lender while going through the Short Sale process. Don't assume it's just a collection attempt. It may be a cash incentive. Provide documents promptly when requested by the Lender. Stay current on your HOA fees if at all possible. The purpose of a Short Sale is to settle your debt with the Lender NOT to see how long you can live i...

Hi folks. This article is my opinion based on what I see happening in my market area. Home ownership is declining in America. Past property owners have and are going through foreclosures and short sales and are no longer in a position to buy. Real Estate values are still declining in most of the major markets. Finally, real estate is affordable again. But who's buying? In my market, Central Florida, the answer is.....Foreign Investors. Investors from the UK, Canada and other countries are taking advantage of the weak dollar and low property values and are scooping up properties that Americans can no longer buy due to credit issues. Then of course these Investors turn right around and rent these properties back to us. Now being that I am a Real Estate Broker and make my living by sellin...

  Hi folks. Short Sales DO get approved. It just takes patience, organization and negotiating skills. In the last 7 days the following lenders have issued approvals for our Florida Short Sales. Orlando Florida Short Sale with Bank of America     Property sold for $127,000. The amount owed Bank of America is $200,000 on the first and $38,000 on the 2nd. The 1st agreed to $109,894 (55%) the 2nd $3,000 (8%). The property was listed in March 2010. Bank of America denied a contract of $130,000 in April. This week they accepted $127,000!! I guess their decision back in April cost them us another few thousand.     Davenport Florida Short Sale with US Bank (FHA) and PNC Bank     Property sold for $60,000. Since FHA will only allow $2,500 to be paid towards the 2nd the Buyer agreed to pay PNC Ba...

Providence is a luxurious gated community developed by multiple builders including ADB, Toll Brothers, Lennar, Meritage Homes and Contempo. This master-planned community is age-targeted rather than age-restricted and offers a wealth of amenities typically found at 55+ communities. Often times home buyers are searching for a community with all the fancy "active adult" amenities but are not ready to settle down in an age-restricted active adult community.  This open age concept has made Providence very attractive. The community was opened in 2005 and will have 4,800 homes upon completion. It’s beautifully situated to take advantage of a lovely natural lake within the community and a semi-private 18-hole championship golf course. The amenities of this age-targeted community are very simila...

Davenport is a small town with a population of around 2,000. It is located around 40 minutes outside of Orlando, Florida in Polk County. Davenport's proximity to Walt Disney World attracts many tourists, most of them British, that stay for long holidays during the summer and winter months. The small-town nature and charm of Davenport has long been a draw for vacationers wanting to visit Central Florida. Numerous short-term holiday homes in the city are rented out by British tourists, who travel from England during the harsh winters. In addition to an abundance of vacation houses, Davenport is home to large, sprawling mansions. Because of the availability of space in the town, and the low population, spacious lots are able to be developed into upscale residences. Since the late 1990s, D...
