Interview Questions by Home Sellers Kwee Huset received an email from buyers who need to sell up North first before they buy in Florida – What interview questions should I ask the real estate agents so I can choose the best one?   Interview questions to ask your potential listing agent: 1. Call and see whether he/she will answer your call (or how soon they return your call).  Are they a part time or full time agent?   Agents who answer calls or return calls within a reasonable time will be easier to work with. Part time agents may not be able to show your property when he/she is working at another job.   2. How many transactions or properties have you sold - lately and in the past? Experience comes from the number of transactions sold, to provide more knowledge and negotiation skills.  ...

Venice, Florida is Named Top Retirement City When deciding where to spend our retirement years, a number of elements have to be considered especially the cost of living, the climate, and the crime rate. It is also important for most to be near family, banks, medical facilities, or houses of worship. Tranquility, however, may be the most important factor. Many will look for a community where they can simply relax and live as worry-free as possible.   The Huffington Post recently investigated America’s small cities and towns, looking for the most relaxing and tranquil retirement destinations. For a town or city to make the Huffington Post’s top 10 rankings the community needed to have evidence of a peaceful atmosphere: a good climate, low crime, civic-minded neighbors, and plenty of outdo...

This morning begins with confusion.  The stone had been removed from the entrance and the tomb was empty – Jesus’s body was missing.  Mary arrived; saw the Angel and later Jesus standing there.  Then confusion was replaced with hope, the weeping woman became the first to confess her faith in the risen Lord.       Happy Easter to all who celebrate Easter, especially friends and staff of ActiveRain and all who read my blog.

East Gate Community Picnic Venice FL This morning 29 children in East Gate had great fun with their Easter Egg Hunt. In the afternoon about 40 adults and their families enjoyed a community picnic with another beautiful day in Paradise Venice FL. Normally my husband and I volunteer to cook the hamburgers and hotdogs for the community. This time he had to do it by himself, because I was home late from showing property in Sarasota near the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.     I missed the fun of cooking BBQ for East Gate community picnic, but there was plenty of food for me to eat when I arrived.   I just ate and ran again for another showing to a different buyer.   When we arrived at the property, there were three different sets of buyers looking at the same house at the same time.

 Tiki From Tree, Venice FL We have a friend from South America in town for a visit. She likes to experience new things. We took her around as well as visited the Venice Art Center in Venice FL. We found this original hand painted Tiki from a palm branch by creative artist Mary Jo Floryjanski. It was for sale at a cost of $50.00. It can be hung out doors in a covered or protected area to avoid direct sunlight and rain to prevent the colors from fading.

Q & A: In Florida Can a HOA foreclose for unpaid Association Fees? # 1 Q: In Florida Can a HOA foreclose for unpaid Association Fees? A: Yes.

  What Can Be Recycled?  Aluminum can…   What can be recycled?  There are many household items that can be recycled; however I chose aluminum cans as my topic for the post. Aluminum cans are one of the most regularly recycled drink containers in the world.  It takes a maximum of 60 days to recycle and return to the store a new can. One can - can save enough electricity to power a TV set for 3 hours.   The benefits of aluminum cans: 1.They do not corrode easily. 2.They can be recycled over and over again; fewer new cans would have to be produced.  Cans that end up in a landfill will be there for 500 years. 3.They are very light weight and reduce transportation costs. 4.They can be rolled into very thin foil and still retain much of their strength, they add value as a light packing materi...
