When a tenant abandons an apartment and leaves personal property behind, what are the proper steps to take of disposing of the tenant's abandoned personal property? As a property manager, I witnessed a landlord removing a tenant's abandoned personal property as I went to visit my friend at the apartment complex where she resides. The tenant's were late in paying their rent and God knows what causes lie on the reasons for abandoning the rental unit. The landlord kept ranting about irresponsible tenants and how they had left personal things behind from the silverware to furniture, TV, DVD player and some clothing. Out of curiosity, I asked the landlord how long had the unit been abandoned. The landlord said that the tenant had just called and was going to pick up their ‘stuff'. But the la...

REAL-ity Bites - As long as homeowners continue to overprice their homes in the market for sale, the longer it will take for the real estate housing market to recuperate. If you are a homeowner and NEED to sell your home then by all means SELL IT but do yourself a favor price it at the right price - which means if your home is not in foreclosure, you would still need to price your home according to the comparable in your block - short sale, foreclosure or not. I just received a phone call from a friend of a friend who wants to sell their condo because they want out. The condo is not a foreclosure, however, if they wanted to sell right now, in this market, in this very current market, they would have to sell very low, which means that according to the comparable in the same building and ...

"The fog that thickens the mirror habitually prevents us from seeing beyond ourselves". Diana Perez Rivera When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror? No, not that mirror, the mirror of your soul. Too many of us focus on our exterior looks yet fail to look from within. You get up in the morning and go about your morning routines. Before you leave your home you do a quick glance in the mirror to double check that you hair is combed, your shirt collar is neatly tucked in place, your teeth are clean and your breath is fresh. But have you checked yourself lately? You know, the one that has been screaming at you for your undivided attention but you demisely ignore? We all fall victims of our hurried worlds, trying to get things done, meeting deadlines, going to work, dealing...

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke's' speech on October 15, 2008 at The Economic Club of N.Y., N.Y., titled, "Stabilizing the Financial Markets and the Economy",  rallies an unfathomable and rather revolting speech. Ignoring the core problem of the financial disaster that we are facing in today's economic woes does not prevail the Federal government tiptoeing on people's heads and brainwashing them to believe that part of  the root of 'the' problem is a loss of confidence by investors...in financial institutions...wanting to bring investors back into the market by ignoring the overall taxpayer's that will be responsible for executives' unscrupulous behavior and unethical business practices in the financing realm. In the past, the Fed's waited too long before the crash hit in 1929 ...

This old cliche reminds me of the times that we are facing today but after doing some careful thought and trying to decide whether to blog about the economy, the latest real estate trends and statistics, and so on and so forth, I have come to the conclusion about one thing: No matter what the news and media say about the economy, especially about real estate, it is the inner peace that we conjure within us that will determine our success at the end of the tunnel. We have to believe in ourselves with conviction that the capabilities and capacities that we set ourselves up to will embark an intangible inner strength that no one can take away. There is a sense of negativity that is emitted through the television channels and radio stations, and even though we should keep up with the latest...

As the US bleeds in turmoil, it seems  many of our foreign neighbors see this as an opportunity to invest in the USA!Globally, this nation is still viewed as a place to "BUY REAL ESTATE!", go figure! We`re seeing an increase in "Overseas" buyer`s looking to purchase Condo`s,Homes and Town Homes in South Florida. Majority of these people are looking for second homes rather than actual investors.They want a piece of the American Dream, and love the Florida Sunshine as well as our muliti cultural flavor!  What seems to be moving the market and why? I guess the Dollar vs the Euro is one reason. Maybe it`s the fact that regardless of what the media or how the stock market reacts many of these people still believe our country is a safe heaven for people from all over the world! Often we as Am...

The South Florida Housing market is Ripe for the picking! We received a call today from a couple residing in Missouri. They were anxious to begin looking at Condo`s near Hollywood Beach. They felt with all the carnage in the market it was time to "Buy". They`ve been receiving "Daily Updates" of active properties from us since April. Every few weeks we speak to one another. The South Real Estate   market is ablaze with homes which are currently under market value.Condo`s near the Ocean which were once in the $300`s are $200K and lower! Everything is negotiable! If you`re looking to relocate or purchasing a second home. Now is the time to buy! For a list of homes in South Florida Contact: The Scott Daniels Real Estate Group @ 954-275-0200.

So, why should you be interested in this information? Read on . . . If you have purchased, or plan to purchase, a home between April 9, 2008 and July 1, 2009, and have not owned a principal residence for a period of three years prior to this purchase, you are considered to be a first time homebuyer and may be eligible for up to a $7,500 tax credit. This means now is the time to buy! This sounds too good to be true, right? Well, let's take a look at the requirements: • Your home must be purchased in the timeframe noted above - 4/9/08 to 7/1/09 • There are income requiremen...

In the early 1980's, cell phones were used in analog and big enough to install in a vehicle. In the 1990's, technology advanced cellular phone use into digital mode, allowing users the advantage of text messaging. As we entered the millennium, we now have the advantage of emails, web browsing, camera and video phones, allowing communications at speeds of velocity beyond our imaginations from just a decade ago. As new inventions of technology in our present communications era emerges, a health concern has been brought to light in lieu of the appealing cell phones that allow us to communicate on a constant basis. Cell phones emit electrical magnetic fields at a minute frequency much lower than a microwave oven, but even at these small amounts, there is talk that cell phones may impose a h...

Or at least it used to be.   I love to travel, and there are so many wonderful places to explore, especially living in South Florida.  Not all of the places that I like to visit are dog friendly though, and we have two wonderful boxers, Faith and Buster.  This used to limit our travel, as I did not like to board them, no matter how wonderful the facilities may have been. A couple of years ago my friend, Angela Diskin, who lives in Hollywood, Florida near the beaches, started a pet sitting service.  I was unsure how my dogs would respond to this, but optimistically gave it a try. Angela came over.  We filled out paperwork, went over how her services work, and she got to know the dogs.  After signing on the dotted line, we went away for a short weekend to Isla Mirada, just south of Miami...

Educating Hollywood Florida Luxury Home Buyers & Sellers Everyone knows a large part of the life of a South Florida real estate agent is spent invested in educating buyers and sellers in our real estate market's ever-changing landscape. One of the ways I like to highlight these shifts in our local market over time is by offering graphs and historical data on market activity. Graphs and stats remove the emotion of the current market conditions and offers a compelling story how our market experiences its highs and lows. The International Influence on South Florida It's a given our current South Florida real estate market has an over supply of single-family homes for sale. The problem is far more severe with the South Florida condo market. Fortunately, I am seeing a trend, be it ever so sl...

Whether you are considering redecorating your home with furniture, art, or color, or you are staging your home for sale, you can add simple colors to match your décor without having to sacrifice the simple taste of minimalism. The basics of simplicity begin with clearing out your clutter. You can begin simplifying your décor by getting rid of clutter before you decide to redecorate your home by getting rid of items that you no longer need. The Basics: Getting Rid of Clutter Start by creating a pile of unwanted items to throw away, another pile to donate, and another for the maybe pile. It's funny how we never know how much junk we accumulate throughout the years unless we move or decide to unclutter our homes. You will find that organizing your home will give you more space and a sense ...
