Short sales in Port St Lucie Florida- Today was a day that went up and went down fast and furious! A day in the life and times of short sale agents! We have a short sale listed in Port St Lucie Florida. We had been receiving super low ball offers from investors on this house that we knew would not fall within the lender's ratios for acceptance so the seller declined those offers. Then we had an agent we know bring us a very good offer on this house. It was going to be the best offer we could get. This was with a lender that is known for being quite aggressive with their phone collection tactics. The stress was absolutely getting to our sellers. They were afraid to answer their phone. No matter how many times they told the other side that they were doing a short sale and that they did no...

Why Should You Invest in Florida Lots?   We live in exciting times! The 2008 mortgage & credit crisis is creating spectacular opportunities to buy well located land at prices up to 80% lower than 2005 prices.  Rarely do buyers have the chance to buy at absolute market bottoms. Land will be the best way to participate when the Florida real estate market has its eventual price recovery.  The first five of months of 2008 have shown an increase in buying activity compared to 2007, especially for lower priced lots. After the real estate boom that topped out in mid-2005 we are seeing the bottom of a price collapse that has reduced land prices 60 to 80 percent.  Based on Florida's long term high growth rate from immigration, retiring baby-boomers, and others attracted to Florida's climate, bea...

Broker Bryant writes a lot of posts about what his market is like in Poinciana Florida which is a bedroom community to Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Some of his posts talk about how hard it is to get loans there and others about the sheer numbers of short sales and bank owned properties eroding the market there and really hurting the home owners who need to sell and can not compete against these short sales and foreclosed properties.  I love reading Forbes magazine and read it monthly. This past month there was a report in Forbes that San Diego was the city with the most foreclosed properties in the nation but lo and behold, the city that took the #3 spot on the list of most foreclosed properties in the entire nation was in Florida and it was NOT Poinciana. It was Port St Lucie Florida! Po...

Before you read this article, I want to remind you the reason to use a buyers broker, it is to have someone represent "you" in a transaction.  It is often the case that the seller will cover most or all of the buyer brokers fees.  In The Hunt's case even if they paid the agent they might have been informed property.  A no lose situation for the educated consumer.  I work, live and play right here in Tradition.  Preventing situations like this is the reason I got into the business.  My goal is to have a satisfied neighbor/friends.  If you or anyone you know is thinking of making a move and have not yet called a buyers broker to represent you call me 772-579-1981.

All the talk about short sales this blog outlines how to get ready to sell. If you've decided to go ahead and sell your house, it's important to have a sales strategy planned out before you even put your house on the market if it's short or not; your agent can tell you or just call me.  772-579-1981   It's also important to have a strategy that both you and your agent agree on, right down to the last detail. With all the details of your plan firmly in place, you'll have a strategy that will help your sale go more quickly and more smoothly when you start receiving offers from buyers.

MORTGAGE RATESRates on 30-year mortgages increased this week for the fourth time in the past five weeks, rising to an average of 6.13 percent, up from 6.03 percent last week, according to Freddie Mac's weekly nationwide survey. As suggested the mortgage rates are more likly then not going to increase over the next year.  If values drop another 10% and interest rates increase just .5% the buyer will pay the same for the house over 30 years. So why now, why not wait?  Well inventory is the highest, the newer homes will sell first.  If your interested in receiving more information please call.Brian Sharkey can be reached at All Florida GMAC Real Estate at 772-335-1995 ext. 192 or via email Brian@BrianSharkeyRealEstate.com   http://www.briansharkeyrealestate.com

According to a recent report, about 75% of homebuyers surf the Web to begin their home search. That means home buyers are well aware of what properties are available on the market and the prices they are selling for. Therefore, now more than ever, pricing is the key to selling your home. Some sellers think that a higher price will give them some negotiating room. But in fact many buyers don't even look at a property that is overpriced, much less make an offer on it. This can lead to the property's becoming "shop-worn." Buyers often inquire about the length of time a property has been on the market. If it has been on the market a long time, they wonder if there is something wrong with it. The sellers then have to drop the price, taking less than they might have if they had priced it corr...

Port St LuciePort St Lucie is approximately 120 miles southeast of Orlando and 120 miles north of Miami, along the Atlantic coast. A convenient highway network--including Interstate 95, the Florida Turnpike and State Road 70--makes it easy to travel throughout Florida.To the east of the city lies the attractive Atlantic Ocean barrier island and beaches known as Hutchinson Island (bridges at Jensen Beach and Stuart, both a few miles east and south). To the west lies the Lake Okeechobee area, and its recreational options.  The area offers plenty of golf and other outdoor recreation, as well as significant arts and cultural resources. The area shares advantages of both the small scale of some of its Old Florida smaller surrounding towns and its own larger scale as a rapidly growing mid-siz...
