As you know, renting has two big problems - the rent can go up, and you don't have anything to show for it except a pile of rent receipts. Me, I like knowing that every month I'm $50 or $100 richer, no matter what. That doesn't sound like much, but if you saw a $100 bill lying on the ground, you'd sure as heck pick it up, wouldn't you? Owning a home is like that - Uncle Sam gives you such incredible incentives, they're just lying there on the ground, and yet some people step right over them, and never scoop them up. In this article, I will show you in real dollars how you can benefit by owning a home. Maybe no one's ever explained it to you in detail before, or you didn't "get it". Well, if you stick with me though this discussion, I think the light will go on for you. One of the facts...

By Liz Streed, GCREP-GL-Realtor PRUDENTIAL Holley Properties R.E. The key to an easy move is careful planning. There are many action items that need to be taken prior to the move all the way up to the actual day the first box is loaded on the moving truck. Take time to write down and organize the decisions and activities that will need to be accomplished prior to the move such as securing a mover and changing your address. Ideally, you should try to break up the tasks over a two-month period. By doing so, you won't overload your schedule, plus it can save you time and money.  To get you started, consider using the checklist below as a guide. Eight Weeks Prior ü      Get estimates from at least three professional movers. If you are going to do it yourself, get estimates on rental trucks....

By Liz Streed, GCREP-GL-Realtor PRUDENTIAL Holley Properties R.E. As a homeowner, you begin to accumulate all sorts of records and papers the moment you made the offer on your home. Loan documents, inspection reports, title insurance policy, home improvement receipts, appliance warranties are just a few of documents that you may at one time or another need. Would you be readily able to locate these items? Are they filed away or in different junk drawers around the house? Knowing where these items are can save you a lot of time and even money in the long run. Consider investing in a record-keeping system. It doesn't have to be expensive. You can purchase an accordion file and label each flap with a different category. Then use the following tips as a guide to get started. Contracts and L...

By Liz Streed, GCREP-GL-Realtor PRUDENTIAL Holley Properties R.E. It's not surprising that two of the most popular rooms for home makeovers are the kitchen and bathroom. When potential homebuyers are searching for homes, they generally are more attracted to homes with updated kitchens and baths. These same rooms rank high in return on remodeling investment at resale, according to Remodeling Magazine's Cost-vs-Value 2008-09 Study. However, both can be pricey ventures. According to the same study, the national average for minor kitchen remodel was $21,246. A sample remodel at this cost includes replacing cabinet fronts, flooring, laminate countertops and oven and cooktop; installing mid-priced sink and faucet, adding wall cover and repainting trim. The national average for a mid-range ba...

By LIZ STREED, GCREP-GL-Realtor PRUDENTIAL Holley Properties R.E. The last step in the home buying process is what real estate professionals commonly refer to as "the closing." The closing, or settlement or close of escrow, is when all the progressive steps in buying a home from the acceptance of the offer, title search, home inspection, mortgage approval, and so on, come together in a final transaction. The documents are ready to sign, the buyer is ready to hand over the purchase price and the seller is ready to transfer title-and most importantly the keys!  Usually held in an office setting, most require about an hour and may be attended by some or all of the various parties in the process: the buyer, seller, real estate sales professionals or attorney, and title-company representativ...

By LIZ STREED, GCREP-GL-Realtor PRUDENTIAL Holley Properties R.E.A sale can be made or lost as a direct result of your home's curb appeal. When it comes to selling your home, the first impression is probably the most important impression. If the outside of the property doesn't create interest or appear well-maintained, a buyer may choose to not even come inside the home. Here are five ways to create curb appeal. Paint and polish. A fresh coat of paint breathes new life into a tired-looking home. If your home looks dull or suffers from peeling, cracked or chipped surfaces, a paint job is a great investment. Polish the doorknocker and mail slot on the front door, as well as any light fixtures by the entry. Re-condition your deck. Consider renting a power washer to clean dirt and mildew fr...

The Department of Veterans Affairs has a specially adapted housing program.  An eligible veteran or servicemember may receive a VA grant of not more than 50 percent of the cost of a specially adapted house.  This amount is allowed above the standard VA loan limits.  The grant is available for servicemembers to construct an adapted home or modify an existing home to meet their adaptive needs. Whitworth Builders, Inc. recently had the pleasure of completing a home for a servicemember who has a specific service-connected disability.  The whole process takes longer than an average build given we had to send the selected plans to the VA for review, which added about 5 months to the build time.  During the build, Whitworth Builders were given specific guidelines to follow and were monitored ...

Surprise....It's BEEN open. At least it has been for a little while.  It has been so long since the 12-mile road through Gulf Islands National Seashore was clear that I forgot to keep up with it's status.  This road connecting Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach is open for the first time since 2005 when Hurricane Dennis destroyed the recently completed repairs from Hurricane Ivan. J. Earle Bowden Way (or Beach Road as most people call it) has a very special place in my history.  It's where my husband proposed to me in 2001.  I remember driving the stretch of road and marveling at the miles and miles of pristine white sandy coastline.  So we, as in my husband and I, have decided to make a commemorative bike trip along Beach Road.  We drove last time, but we need the exercise this time.   ...

  I recently attended a 2 day course in Pensacola, FL on distressed properties and it was worth its weight in gold! I am now a Certified Distressed Property Expert©. I was a little skeptical of the course at first because "expert" sounded over the top to me, and how could a 2-day course turn me into an expert? Well I may not be an expert -yet, but I'm well on my way to becoming one! One day after completing the course I called my first ever expired- a short sale! They'd had their home on the market for one year and to my horror I discovered the homeowners had been in the foreclosure process for the past 11 months! The wife and husband had separated and the wife didn't know the listing had expired. She was terrified of losing her home. (I'd hoped that meant losing her home to foreclosure...
