Food Fast that's not Fast Food. Try Fat Boys Bar B Q Kissimmee, Florida 1606 West Vine Street, This evening after completing a Brokers Price Opinion. I was hungry and needed to eat. I stopped into Kissimmee's longest standing restaurant. Established in 1971, Fat Boys is a Kissimmee icon. The Bar B Q is outstanding and so is the service. The prices are reasonable too. I walked in, and while I was being seated, I was asked what I wanted to drink with my meal. The beverage was there  before I had decided that I was going to have the same thing I always have, a super sized slice smoked pork sandwich on garlic bread. The sandwich is just $6.15. For $.50 more you can make a sandwich with garlic bread. As it was after 6:00pm, dinner time, I chose a baked sweet potato and Fat Boys coleslaw. The...

REO Pricing In Kissimmee, Florida Is getting very Competitive. Yesterday, I was with a man that wanted to put an offer on a property that has taken a few price adjustments in the last few weeks. The home was even cheaper that a competitive price. I called the agent and was informed that there were now multiple offers on this home. My buyer still wanted to put in an offer way below asking price sighting the repairs that needed to be made.I tried to inform him that the price was well below market and even below what repairs were needed. But he insisted. So in went the offer. These are banks, not homeowners. They know what the property is worth. There isn't an emotional attachment. They have researched the market and the repairs needed and priced the home accordingly. But, the low offer st...
