Port St Lucie, FL - Welcome back Investors! Many savy investors remember Port St Lucie, FL as the fastest rising real estate prices in the United States in 2004/2005 when prices rose to as much as $130,000 per 1/4 acre lot.  And many of you also have watched the bubble burst, but don't realize just how far we really fell.  Well there is finally good news on the horizon... our prices have found their floor and they are finally on the rise once again.  With just a handful of these lots now left under $10,000, these lots are currently available for better than 90% off the previous highs.  I think we all know the history of real estate and that is "real estate is a cycle" and the historic average has been 5 year cycles.  And if you do the quick math, we started our decline in 2006 and here ...

Port Saint Lucie FL ‚Äď I've heard of debt collectors contacting people's family and relatives trying to reach them for "an important business matter." Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. When they tell the relative their business name, then it becomes obvious what is happening. They do this as an attempt to embarrass a debtor into paying them. Here is what most debtors do not know. This is actually a violation of a Federal Law called The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, provided the debt collector has your information already. I have seen this happen in many situations. Someone gets a call from a debt collector. A few days later that same person calls their relative and says they can't reach the debtor. They are not allowed ...

Port Saint Lucie FL ‚Äď A potential home seller asked The Stop Foreclosure Institute how we get paid on a short sale transaction. So I decided to answer that question in today‚Äôs blog post. Here is how most Realtors get paid on a short sale. They make a real estate commission from the sale of the property. When the property sells a percentage of the sales price is paid as a commission. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. Many sellers mistakenly think that since there is no equity in the property, then there is no way for the agent to be paid. In this situation the seller‚Äôs lender pays the commission. They are willing to pay a commission on a short sale because if the property is foreclosed upon, not only will the property sell fo...

Short Sale Specialists in Port St Lucie, FL What is a short sale?  This is anytime a lender is willing to accept lower than the payoff amount of the loan.  Now you may ask, "why would they do this?"  There are several reasons, but mainly any time they can prevent a foreclosure and receive some money for the property, they are making a better business decision. Without getting to deep in detail, the process is extremely complicated and takes time, but it can be most rewarding to a seller who has kept good credit only to now face foreclosure and extremely beneficial to a buyer who has the opportunity to purchase a wonderful deal on a great property.  As a real estate agent and CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT, Kevin Tolbert of Keller Williams Realty of Port St Lucie, FL has successful...

 EMC gets the prize for the servicer that is the best at Being the WORST Servicer to deal with. We have a lot of short sales with EMC and they have never been easy to deal with however lately, they are even worse . They are totally unresponsive. They are totally arrogant, nasty and unprofessional. But if you read their mission statement right here you will see that they say right in print- that they" do not tolerate abuse... " read for yourself. Facts are facts. Everything I write in this post is backed up here with facts. I am even putting the screen shots from the sources right here.  Their mission statement does not match their actions. You can read their mission statement right here directly from their website. They also have their "Best Servicing Practices" listed here. What a joke...

The Torino Area of Port St. Lucie Florida is one of the most desirable places to live for many home buyers. Recent homes sales in the area are reflecting the buying public approval of this nice little niche of Port St. Lucie. The Torino area of Port St Lucie is considered by many to be part of St Lucie West; with out the deed restrictions that some of the gated communities of St Lucie West offers. The Torino area of Port Saint Lucie was established years after the rest of the city was built. So the homes for sale in the Torino area are newer and larger than what you might find in other areas of the un gated sections of PSL. If you are considering buying a home in Port St Lucie's Torino Parkway area, call me. I would be happy to assist you. Call Dan or Denise Allen at (772) 708-1487 Vis...
