When you are ready to sell, you'll want to maximize the emotional appeal of your home. People who are enchanted with your home upon walking in the door are more likely to buy, and at a fair price. Here are some tips to enhance the emotional appeal of your home: * Turn on the lights to create a warm glow and remove the shadows.* Make sure the windows are clean, and open the curtains or blinds.* Keep the kitchen and baths clean and sparkling. Don't leave dishes in the sink.* Remove all clutter, make the beds, and pick up toys. * Pack away items that may detract from a buyer's ability to mentally move into your home such as family pictures or teen posters.* Make the closets look bigger by packing up the clothes you are not using.* Create a relaxing atmosphere with soft music.* Make people ...

HOA Documents I'm listing a property in a new subdivision and another agent just asked me why I'd want to read them before I list the property.  (When I say new subdivision, less then five resales have taken place in the whole community so far.) Interesting question- I've put a plan in place to become the most productive agent in the "New Area" of town.  I've lived here for over five years now.  Visiting association board meetings, reading HOA documents, talking to builders has given me a distinct advantage over other agents.  More importantly I become the sourse for all the real estate information in the community, Why do you think a listing agent should read the docs before listing?   Brian Sharkey Can be reached via email at Brian@Briansharkeyrealestate.com or by phone at 772-579-198...

Freddie Mac still does not come clean. They keep passing the buck. They keep making up excuses as to why they can not even just give one simple answer. They make empty promises. Read Freddie Mac- Does Anyone There Know How To Read- Part I, to understand the history of this short sale file. We have never lost a short sale due to our negotiations. Every listing we take goes through an intake evaluation to get everyone on the same page, to make sure the seller understands what a short sale is, to analyze the seller's commitment to the short sale process and to evaluate the chance for success of the short sale. We have a 100% closing ratio because we do not give up on our sellers no matter what monster shows up. This would be the very first file that we will lose to a short sale rejection. ...

Freddie Mac- Is there anyone there that knows how to read? Our last hope is that someone there in your office has the decency to respond to our many requests and the homeowner's many requests for help. Freddie Mac- You rejected a short sale work out program for this homeowner and we had 2 buyers ready to pay the appraised price for this property. Your appraisal came in below what the buyers are willing to pay for this house. Freddie Mac- The homeowner even hired an attorney to make sure there was nothing amiss in the short sale documents. You sent this file to your legal department and then never disclosed the reason it was sent to your legal department. So much for the transparency that was promised. Freddie Mac- Chase is the servicer for this note that you own. Our negotiator at Chase...

Florida State University's award winning film school is in discussions to partner with a Hollywood spin-off of a digital production group. Wyndcrest Holdings LLC is trying to tie up the loose ends on a deal that will create a 150,000 square foot facility within the Tradition development in Port St. Lucie. The new Wyndcrest company would be working on animated feature films and video games. Another division of the company would be working on military projects concentrating on combat simulations. This is another example of how much potential there is in the Tradition area of Port St. Lucie.

    FHA loans seem to be one of the main choice of mortgages in the last 12 months or so. There are many reasons for this. And FHA loans will definitely be the main choice for anyone buying a condo now. More on that later.. What I hate hearing is that FHA mortgages have taken the spot of the subprime loans. This is not true by any part of the imagination. This statement is from those that are inexperienced in both the mortgage and the real estate industries. The realization has been that 30% of the subprime mortgages from 2002 to 2006, should have been FHA mortgages, not subprime.   To compound this, so many said just because you had a conventional loan, you had the better loan. This was not always true when putting 3% or even 5% down. In most cases, you were told this, because that par...

  Time is $$ Money $$   How many times have we heard that time is money??? One thing that I keep hearing is how long it takes to close FHA loans. Just the other day, Michelle Gibson wrote : FHA loans approved & closed in 15 days? - I have been doing mortgages since 1992 and my first FHA loan was in 1993. On average, up until this past year, they could easily be done in 30 days or less. The typical time was 3 weeks. There are too many bad rumors that surround how FHA mortgages work and what they are all about. The main problem is that it's not rocket science and it never was, but that many loan officers never did FHA loans up until the last 12 months.       On another note, it doesn't matter if it's a FHA loan, a conventional loan, a VA loan, or a USDA loan....   it all starts with the l...

The urgency is clear and I'm hearing it from all angles - local buyers want to find something FAST before their $8000 tax credit runs out and our neighbors to the north feel that the deals are going to start drying up.For example, in the past two weeks I have worked with a buyer who is desperate to find a good home and get it closed before he misses the free government money. We've successfully found him something and we're on our way towards closing! On the other side of the coin I've been getting lots of calls from buyers in NY, NJ, and CT that are consistently stating that they feel that the good deals in South Florida are going to start drying up and they need to act fast. Most of the people that are buying from the North are looking for condos or smaller homes that they can retire ...

In law school, the most valuable thing I learned . . . is the answer to most questions is . . . IT DEPENDS.  And that truly applies here.  Yet another real estate website SmartZip.com is out there touting real estate advice on a national level, even though they have no clue what is going on in the local areas they are writing about.  Port St. Lucie is a perfect example. SmartZip.com has listed Port St. Lucie as a Top 10 for investors.  Yikes.  What do they know about what is really going on or what areas of Port St. Lucie are good, bad or ugly.  They know nothing, so beware. There are deals to be made in Port St. Lucie real estate, but it still not time for investors to step in unless they are prepared to another 1-3 years of losses.  Investors can buy foreclosure properties for 10-25% ...
