First, we received a homeowners insurance cancellation notice for our Niceville Florida investment property.  Their mobile inspection had shown that there was some wood rot on the side of the house.  Although common in Florida, they said if it was not fixed within 30 days, they were going to cancel the policy. Scramble. My husband and I called a few contractors, and the price to replace the siding with comparable material was about $10,000.  So we thought, “Why not replace it with vinyl siding?”The only problem was, we couldn’t get any vinyl contractors to call us back.  One finally responded, and we accepted their proposal for $22,000. The issue was… when could they do the work? It turns out… maybe never.  New paperwork showed that the work was to be done “at a future date to be determ...

I’ve been learning to cook for 18 years. Ever since I gave my husband, new boyfriend at the time, the years-frozen shrimp appetizer. After he bit into it, the look on his face was frozen. I had some learning to do. Fast forward 18 years. I am still learning to cook, but sometimes my dishes come out good. We love fish. Living in Destin, Florida aka,  “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, we have lots of delicious local seafood options that are brought in from the fishing fleet at Destin Harbor, the largest commercial fishing fleet in the nation. One of my favorite catches is grouper. We hadn’t had it in quite a while, and my husband was hinting that it would be a good treat. We weren’t going out. I was going to make it. Grouper is not cheap.  At $32.99 a pound,  I almost had them put ...

Glass shower door rubs frame. Recommend repair.Sliding door needs adjustment.Cracked outlet cover in living room. Recommend licensed electrician repair.Sink drain assembly is loose. No leaks observed. Recommend review and repair by licensed plumber.Suspect MICROBIO GROWTH! Observed at air conditioner registers!!  Need microbio hazard specialist to inspect and eradicate! (This was accompanied by a picture showing a sparkling clean air vent!)And on and on.Florida home inspection reports, nitpicky like this one, raise the hackles of the seller, and sometimes the listing agent (who me?).  Of course, we know the inspector is covering himself by recommending all the varied and assorted “specialists” to come out and do further “investigations”. But, do you really need a plumber to tighten a fa...

I turned away two Destin Florida real estate buyers this week. Not intentionally. But I told them the truth. Each was an out-of-state purchaser looking to get a “deal”. One wanted to expand his rental holdings and another wanted to buy a tear down.I told them they would not get a deal. There are no deals. Almost every real estate sale along the Emerald Coast of Florida is for full price and higher, with multiple bidders.  Properties sell within hours, or a few days at the most. In all price ranges, from $200,000 to $10,000,000.  Properties sell “as is”.  Some buyers waive inspections, some pay the difference if a property does not appraise at purchase price if they are getting a mortgage. Successful buyers purchase houses and condos without seeing them in person. They allow sellers to s...

If you are looking for a mortgage to buy an Emerald Grande condo in Destin Florida, you may have a bit of difficulty.  You cannot go to any lender and get a loan for a unit in the Emerald Grande condominium complex.   Mortgage lenders who are not restricted to selling their loans to Fannie Mae (FNMA) in the secondary mortgage market are your best bet.  Why so? FNMA guidelines exclude purchases of condo mortgages for projects that have hotel-like amenities and also “time share” type activity. Emerald Grande, which has fabulous hotel-like offerings on-site, like multiple pools, restaurants, and full-service spa, also has dozens of “fractional ownership” units. Fractional interest is owning a “share” of  real property, for example, six weeks of usage per year.Fannie Mae’s “Ineligible Proje...
