The best real estate agent in St. Lucie West or any market for that matter depends on a few things. The number one consideration should be what you (the home buyer or seller) are trying to accomplish. Are you trying to Short Sell your home, or are you trying to avoid a Short Sale? Are you trying to buy a home? If you are looking to buy, how quickly do you need a home? Do you have time for the sometimes lengthy process that a Short Sale can be? Should you look at Bank Owned properties and do you have the temperament to deal with the struggles and frustrations that buying bank owned foreclosures can sometimes be?   If you are looking to sell your home in a Short Sale, do you have time to accomplish this before the bank forecloses?If you need help with any of your real estate needs in Port...

  Shopping mortgage rates can be confusing, especially if you are dealing with a loan officer that has no integrity.  It's just a sales job to them.  You hear people say... Shop Rate...Shop APR (Annual Percentage Rate)…..  Shop mortgage fees….. So which is it?  Shopping for a mortgage can be very frustrating also to say the least. I hear so many called experts tell the average consumer to shop APR. This is not the wisest of decisions and can be argued by many professionals. Keep in mind, this is my opinion on this subject. Lets add some more confusion. Most of us know what the rate is in regards to mortgages. Lets define rate and APR.  Rate :  A charge or payment calculated in relation to a particular sum or quantity: interest rates. (from answer.com)  APR (Annual Percentage Rate) :  Is...

                          Ocean access waterfront real estate in Port St. Lucie Florida may be the best real estate investment in this buyers market. Hidden River Estates on the north fork of the St. Lucie River in Port Saint Lucie is among the best values for ocean access subdivisions on Florida's Treasure Coast.      Ocean access waterfront real estate on Florida's east coast is at a 10 or 15 year low in price. Waterfront real estate is not immune to the foreclosure and short sale epidemic that has struck the rest of Saint Lucie county. As a rising tide floats all boats, a falling tide has the same and reverse effect. When this cycle turns (and it will) one of the first locations in this real estate market to show appreciation will be ocean access waterfront real estate on Florida's T...

                         Ocean access real estate is not what Port Saint Lucie is best known for, but maybe it should be!                 Ocean access real estate in Port Saint Lucie on Florida's east coast is perhaps the best kept secret about Port St. Lucie.  Ocean access real estate that is affordable and desirable is not always attainable, but Port St. Lucie's ocean access real estate proves the exception to that rule. Ocean access real estate in Port St. Lucie on Florida's east coast is perhaps the best kept secret about Port St.Lucie. The developers of Port Saint Lucie knew back in the 1960's that one day prices for ocean access real estate in south Florida would get too expensive for mere mortals. When General Development Corp. laid out the city back in the 1960's they designed t...

                                                   A foreclosure agent also know in the business as a REO agent has a very difficult job here on the East Coast of Florida. A  REO agent is a real estate agent that specializes in listing foreclosed properties directly from the banks, or asset managment companies that represent investors that have purchased the properties for resale to the home buying public. On the surface foreclosure agents would seem to have it made, they get the best listings of homes for sale at the best prices and they know about them weeks sometimes months in advance of becoming available to the home buying public. In Port St. Lucie and Port Saint Lucie West on Florida's east coast also known as the Treasure coast, these types of agents have been working overtime as...

                     Short Sales in Port Saint Lucie Florida and Short Sales in Port st. Lucie West, are not part of the market, they are the market. Short Sales and foreclosures in Port St. Lucie have been common place for some time now. What hasn't been common (until now) is the growing number of short sales, Bank owned property and foreclosures popping up in St. Lucie West. Located on Florida's East Coast also known as the Treasure Coast, St. Lucie County and the surrounding areas have been hit hard by the housing collapse. If you are falling behind on your mortgage payments, call me so we can discuss your options. Short selling your home may be a much better option then forclosure. My services are free to the home buyer, but the value could be priceless.                             ...

After looking at the numbers I am even more convinced that Lake Forest in Port St. Lucie Florida's Saint Lucie West is a great value. In the past 3 months from 3/1/2009 to 6/23/2009 (7)houses have sold in this gated community. The average sale price over that same time period averaged $79 per square foot of living area. No doubt the Bank Owned property, foreclosures and short sales in the area are effecting peoples perception of what is a fair price. This is a great opportunity for a smart home buyer looking to move into a nice neighborhood in a great location.                             The HOA fees seem reasonable at $145 per mo. especially when you consider that comes with two pools, a fitness center, a club house, a security gate and what ever else this place has to offer. All thin...

Once again I'm reminded why I love this profession! A year ago a former customer referred her daughter to me as an excited first time home buyer. Having a potential buyer in this market was incredible and I couldn't wait to call. But, it didn't take long to realize this sale wasn't going to happen in 2008. The young lady and her fiance, while very excited hadn't faced the realities of getting a loan. Explaining the process of pre approval led them to the conclusion that they would have to secure their jobs, save money, pay off debt and work to improve their credit score. They were disappointed especially since prices seemed to be finally affordable but they said okay. I kept in frequent contact with them and often sent homes within their criteria. It motivated them to continue on their ...

The First area I will be investigating with you is the gated community of Lake Forest. Lake Forest located in The City of Port St. Lucie's, Saint Lucie West area seems to boast some of the lowest price real estate of any of the gated subdivisions in the entire St. Lucie West development. My question is why? I looked at a very nice 3br / 2ba home with a pool for under $175,000.                      Based on what I saw driving around the neighborhood the price seems low. Lake Forest like most of the communities up and down the Treasure Coast of Florida is experiencing a low in it's market value. This community like many others in this part of Florida has a growing number of home owners in distress. As some fall behind on the mortgage payments more and more deals seem to pop up. The Short ...

                                                                                        FHA loans seem to be the most used mortgage program of 2009. Is it because it's the best mortgage out there?  Probably not, but it does fit more borrowers profiles than most other loans, making it easier to obtain. Which mortgage program do I think is the best out there?  VA loans, followed by USDA loans, then FHA loans, and lastly.... conventional loans.     Let's break it down very easily, so most can understand. And if your loan officer is selling against one loan or another, yet you fit the profile that I mention below, then I would seek outside help from a loan officer that can break all of this down for you.  Trust goes a long way, yet some loan officers use key terms and or phrases to make you...

First week of this month( April 2009) I left Century 21 Duncan & Associates and joined family of Re/Max Masterpiece. And I say family with all the meaning. I always thought of Remax offices as impersonal and big with tens and sometimes hundreds of agents that don't even know each other. Not this office. After week of being there, I felt like I knew agents, brokers and stuff for years. And we do a lot of business too . I am not bragging. I am just sooooo HAPPY. If anybody living in Port Saint Lucie wants to visit ( and office itself is a beauty too) , we are located at 1775 SW Gatlin Blvd ( across from Walmart) Ste #101, PSL, FL, 34953. www.annacrealestate.com 772-485-4188 Anna Chroscicki

In this morning's local news paper there were a few articles on real estate in Port St. Lucie.  It looks like our average home price has leveled out and we should see a rise in sales because of it.  People are looking for hot deals, and Port St. Lucie has them.  Picture this:  The average home in PSL has these features:  CBS Construction, 2300+/- sq. ft, 3-4 bedrooms, 2 (or even 3) bathrooms, 2 car garage, built within the last 3-5 years, 1/4 acre lot.....Selling in the low 100's These deals are everywhere....some are short sales and foreclosures, but a deal is a deal; especially if the buyer is a first time home buyer.  Not every home is "move-in" ready, but if you are purchasing a foreclosure, you have to expect that the property won't be perfect.   Our office has many deals like this...
