4414 Sunstate Dr. New Port Richey Florida has Sold.  This impeccably maintained condominium in the Gated 55+ Community of the Gardens of Beacon Square had tile throughout, updated kitchen and bathrooms and located close to parks and local beaches. This condo was purchased 2 years ago by my customers. They relocated to New Port Richey from Oregon.  I met David the husband who came to visit for 3 days and chose to buy the condo.  Shortly after, his wife Beth joined him.  Last summer David called me and said that their home in Oregon had sold and they were ready to buy a single family home in the New Port Richey area.  We searched for a few weeks until a beautiful home in Port Richey came on the market.  We went to see it and they made a full price offer that day.

Your potential home buyers should be treated as house guests for their appointment times.  Treating your buyers showings like having a short visit from a family member or friend will help you prepare your home for the appointment when selling your home in New Port Richey Florida.  This idea was given to me by one of my customers who consistently received feedback that said the house was clean, well maintained and inviting. I asked Mrs. Seller if she cleaned every time there was an appointment and this was her response.  "The time my home was on the market I kept it in my mind that we had out of town guests coming. This way I was always ready for the call for an appointment and the house looked nice" Another way this home showed well was that the sellers would leave the home for every sh...

Burning A Hole In The Florida Sky,  At sunset a couple of nights ago I was outside checking out the Sandhill Cranes who were sleeping in our pond and saw this interesting sight.  Of course, I ran back in the house to get one of my many cameras.    The clouds were like upside-down sheep and the sun just seemed to be burning through them.      I love sunsets and sunrises, there is always such an infinite variety, and I never get tired of seeing them and taking pictures of them. Enjoy! Toni and Craig Weidman Re/Max Sunset Realty 727-237-0083
