I myself am trying to figure out the most important question of all>???? Will this REALLY help the homeowner out, or delay the inevitable? The state of FL has issued a 45-day halt on foreclosures, that is if the foreclosure process has NOT already been started, I am also hearing that now a coalition of advocacy groups are wanting a 6-month halt on all foreclosures.  I feel that the 45-day moratorium is definitely not enough time.  It is in fact just delaying a major crisis for these families. Granted it is coming at a time when people need some sort of reassurance from the government, but is a 45-day grace period really enough time for people to work with their banks, get back on their feet and actually try and stay in their home, I honestly don't think that it is, I actually wonder if ...

The week of December 1st commemorates the grand opening of the Port St Lucie Civic Center. I had the priveledge of attending the community tour on Tuesday, December 2nd around lunch time. The center boasts a whopping 100,000 square feet that includes ballrooms, conference rooms, a fitness center, a gymnasium, a game room, art gallery, and many other nooks and crannies. Outside there is a stage in front of the entrance that I am assuming will be used for concerts and events. To the south west corner sits a 4 level parking garage. Here is a slideshow of some photos that I shot during my tour: The facility is on US1 at the Walton Road / Veterans Memorial Parkway traffic light.

Short Sales in Port St Lucie Florida and Palm Beach county are found in abundance. The amount of listings on the market and in foreclosure in Port St Lucie is staggering. Prices are going down as well they should be. The market is correcting itself. It is a great time to buy- we are selling short sales!   Each time our fax machine rings with an acceptance letter for one of our short sale listings we do our victory dance! We jump up and down and celebrate with a smile, a hug, a prayer of thanksgiving to God and a big sigh of relief for a fight well fought, a battle well planned and a victory foreseen! This week we received 3 acceptance letters! While much of the market is at a standstill we are cooking those short sales.We are getting our full fee on 2 out of 3 of these acceptances. Yest...

I thought this may be of some use to your clients.  Just some general information that they may or may not be aware of.  Just passing it along. I know what many are thinking, who in this market has Equity, but you would be surprised how many people ask me about this. ~Sharon~ Removing private mortgage insurance By Bankrate.com If you secured a home loan with less than a 20 percent down payment, chances are your lender required you to buy mortgage insurance to cover its exposure in case you default. Once your equity position in the home reaches 20 percent, however, you will want to stop paying mortgage insurance (unless you have an FHA-insured loan, which requires premium payments to the government for the life of the loan). Know your rightsBy law, your lender must tell you at closing h...

  Hello my AR Friends..... For once, I just want to write to say hello and to check up on all my AR friends.  I am tired of hearing (blogging) about the bailout, the economy, the desperate times we are having, as I am SURE you are too.  It doesnt mean I do not care about the situation, just the opposite, but I think that we need to take a step back and think about the little things every once in a while, the things that matter.  The friendships, our health, our children, I just wanted to basically say......... HELLO!  How are you?!?!   TRUE FRIENDS....... Yes I know that true friends, genuine friends, are hard to find, but I seem to always find good in everyone and therefore I tend to make friends very easily, so stop by and say hello to me....I will always respond.  In this crazy worl...

As you may or may not be aware, October is breast cancer awareness month, and it is up to us to get the word out and bring awareness to this horrible disease.  I myself can attest to this life altering disease when I say that it is an  ordeal for anyone to have to go through, my mother is DEALING WITH HER SECOND BATTLE w/ Breast Cancer, and I feel that I have a burden to carry in trying to get the word out, it is odd how such a horrible, awful, disgusting disease can bring something great out in someone, once it has hit a member of your family or a friend, you feel this compelling desire to get the word out and get the awareness out, I don't know what it is.  I am contemplating doing the 3 day walk for my mother, 60 miles in 3 days.  I know it is a challenge and it has been laid upon my...

Short Sales in Port St Lucie Florida do close! Nestor Gasset and Katerina Gasset close on another short sale listing in Port St Lucie Florida. We just closed on 1781 Effland in Port St Lucie. The sales price ended up being $175,000 for a 4 bedroom, 3 bath with over 2400 square feet under air just built in 2006. The lot that this house was built on went for $140,000 with NO house on it in 2005! Just the lot! These prices are heading back to 2003 prices quickly. This is great news for school teachers, firemen, police officers and many other folks that could not afford to buy a home in those boom years! The best part about this short sale is that Chase was the short sale lender! Chase is the best lender to deal with on these short sales in our experience. They are fast and efficient. We ha...

We just got a call from one of our sellers that we have listed as a short sale in Port St Lucie Florida. They were just served with foreclosure papers. As soon as the foreclosure process became a matter of public record at the county clerk they started getting calls and direct mail from all these people who suddenly showed up in their lives to help them. There are so many scams out there, be careful. First of all, DO NOT LET ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSE THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW! In our sellers' mailbox someone had put a flyer that was handwritten and copied. This flyer said that this person would take over the sellers' payments no matter how much they owe. They would just come and assume their loan no matter how much they owed. We are so glad they called us and faxed us this scam. Do not sign a qui...

Well to say the least this has been one heck of a month. Let me tell you about me....I have been a stay at home mom for the past 10+ years, I have been very fortunate to spend this time with my kids, but now is the time for me, to get back into the workforce.  My husband and I bought a home recently and working with my agent she inspired me to become one myself, soooo I just started my Real Estate Career, and I am SO excited to get started in the business and build a name for myself.

Short Sale Agents List Short Sales in Port St Lucie Florida Short Sales - Love Them or Hate Them- They Are Here To Stay For A While Short Sales have become a huge part of our business these days and we project that this trend will continue for the next 3 to 5 years. Agents who learn how to move with markets will be able to carve out quite a nice niche servicing short sales like we have. One of the biggest complaints we hear from agents is that short sales take too long to close. The average closing time we have is 45 to 60 days for short sales from the point of receiving an offer from a buyers' agent to the closing. When I first started in real estate Jimmy Carter was President and inflation was out of control, the interest rates hovered at 17% to 19%! There were no fax machines, no em...
