I've been out and about on listing appointments lately. Activity in the market is picking up. But we still need buyers to get off the fence. Buyers have been concerned with not overpaying because they know the appraissal may or may not come in at the offered price. It's tough trying to find out how motivated a Seller truly is in this market. My experience has been the Seller wants their price but are willing to sit back and wait. I have motivated Sellers who want to sell and these are the Sellers I want to work with. Why would I want to spend marketing dollars on something where there isn't motivation to sell? I spend countless hours online setting up the right mix of web sites and promotions -  not to mention the emails of all sorts that arrive in my Inbox. These must be answered no ma...

Please take a look at this video when you get a chance: www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/07102009/watch2.html I'm back. Palm Beach has seen plenty of foreclosure activity. Sales of condos are up and the prices are low. It was a long, hot summer in Palm Beach. Weatherwise, we had rain almost daily. This is great and keeps hurricanes far away from us, as you can see so far. Real estate sales have heated up. I've sold one of my properties through short sale successfully and I had the privilege of working for a couple who purchased a dream condo, direct ocean view on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale. www.tropicaldreamteam.com Feel free to search properties on my site. It's also a great time to buy if you are an investor. Many of the properties on market have to be sold. So many bargains on properties ...

Recently I have been walking over the Lake Worth Bridge in the mornings. It is quite a bit cooler at this time of day and very peaceful. This morning the water was like glass. The morning brings fishermen, runners, bicyclists, and other walkers out to get the juices flowing. get a head start on the day or to just relax in the gorgeous South FLorida breeze. It doesn't hurt that I could use the exercise. Most of my day is spent sitting in a car or behind a desk. I feel better and my dog Spanky loves it too. I have been working on several transactions including a couple of short sales that have been very very difficult.  One of the short sales has been in the works for 6 months with no end in sight!
