1. Make sure that your moving quote is based upon a visual survey. One of the biggest mistakes that people make when booking a move is assuming that a phone quote is guaranteed. The only way to obtain a binding quote is to have your household goods visually surveyed by a moving company. 2. Use a reputable mover for your move. The American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) has established the ProMover program to provide an easy way for consumers to separate reputable professional movers from rogue operators and con artists. All of the movers in the Van Line Express Network are ProMover certified. 3. Read all documents before signing. Once you have been provided a written quote, make sure you read before signing. The quote should document weight, distance, and services to be rendered....

This home in Lighthouse Pointe, Navarre Florida, was just approved for a VA Compromise Sale.  A VA Compromise Sale is similar to a short sale, but is used for loans guaranteed by the Veterans Administration.  Since the Emerald Coast is home to Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field, Whiting Field and Duke Field, many local sellers have VA mortgages and may be able to use the program if they are unable to sell their homes to cover their mortgage balance. One of the key differences between a typical short sale and VA Compromise Sale is the disposition of the deficiency.  According to the VA website, " If your loan closed on or after January 1,1990, you will owe the Government in the event of a default only if there was fraud, misrepresentation, or bad faith on your part." So, in most cases...

  This gorgeous home at 2408 Kodiak Ct., Navarre Florida was just sold using the HAP program.  What is HAP?  It's short for Homeowner Assistance Program, and is a Department of Defense relocation benefit to U.S. Armed Forces members who meet certain requirements. It's a terrific help for Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field and Duke Field airmen whose property values have declined.  How?  HAP may cover most, if not all, of your upside-down mortgage when you sell your property in order to PCS.What are HAP requirements? Here are the main criteria, but HAP will do a full review of your situation to see if you qualify, and what your benefits may be:1.  You have PCS (permanent change of station) orders to move more than 50 miles away2. You bought your home or entered into a contract to purch...

Top 10 New Kitchen Trends seen in 2010 More and more homeowners are remodeling and making the most of their space with these top 10 hot trends in the kitchen.

By Liz Streed, GCREP-GL-RealtorPRUDENTIAL Holley Properties R.E.     Every homebuyer has a vision of their perfect house and the rooms that are most important to them. Because of their relatively small size in comparison to the rest of a home, bathrooms are often overlooked in the staging process, but for many, it could be the most important room in a buying decision.      A bathroom is more than just a place for grooming; it’s a sanctuary. It’s a place one can relax in a hot bath and escape the stresses of daily life for a few moments at a time.     Updating a tired-looking bathroom is one of the best things you can do to increase a home’s resale value and the fixes are not too costly or labor intensive.      Easy fixes include adding new, luxurious-looking towels, replacing the showe...

This home in Tom King Estates, Navarre Florida, has been approved for short sale.The senior lien, Wells Fargo, had a balance of $230,000The junior lien, HSBC, had a $65,000 balance.The sale price was about  $185,000, so there were not enough funds to fully pay the senior lien.  In these short sale scenarios, the senior lien will normally pay an amount to satisfy the junior lien.  The "junior" might only release  its lien, not waive the deficiency.  Initially, HSBC requested $6000 to approve the short sale. Wells Fargo, the senior lien, would only pay them $3700.  HSBC asked the seller to bring $1500 in additional funds.  The seller agreed, and the deficiency was waived by both Wells Fargo and HSBC.If you need to avoid foreclosure by short sale for your home in Navarre, Florida, contact...
