  Our most recent short sale success closed last wek in Park Place Estates, Largo, Florida.  The seller’s lender was Nationstar, and our team overcame several obstacles, including negotiating counteroffers and inconsistencies with valuation from the seller’s lender.  The successful negotiations resulted in the seller being awarded a $3000 relocation incentive, and the short sale was approved with no deficiency to be pursued, and no promissory note due from the seller.  This short sale was approved by Nationstar just 67 days after the executed contract, and it closed only 9 days later.   The seller is very relieved to move on to the next chapter in life. The buyers are thrilled and looking forward to making this house a home for their family.  This was a “win-win” for all parties involv...

  Florida Botanical Gardens-Largo, FL What Is This Mystery Flower     We visited the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo a while back and encountered these truly lovely flowers. It was awhile ago, and I didn’t take a picture of the name so I can’t tell you for sure what it is. They have lots and lots of beautiful Rhododendrons there so I’m thinking it must be one of the more exotic ones.  If anyone can identify it, I would love to know.      You can visit their website here.   Recent Posts Pretty in Pink, Even Her Engine Holiday, FL Home Sales for April, 2013 Rock the Park in New Port Richey Keep Your Eyes Open Home Sales April 2013 New Port Richey   Florida Botanical Gardens-Largo, FL What Is This Mystery Flower
