We would be delighted to assist you with your property search in one of two ways as follows:
1) browse through properties by selecting search criteria on the property search features that are located on the Home Page or under the heading Properties For Sale. This feature enables you to become familiarized with properties determined by your choices of style, location, size and price range.
There is a provision for you to set up your own search that will auto-notify you with property matches for active homes for sale and Under Contract-Backup offers only homes
2) fill out a contact form to email me or phone me direct and I will set up an MLS search that will automatically email you with new listings and status updates.
These updates will exclude homes that show as' Under Contract-Backup Offers' homes (U-CB status) which are homes with a seller-accepted offer that is pending condition removal/financing approval or waiting on the lienholder's approval as the proceeds from the sale are "short" of paying out the lienholder(s)....this is what a Short Sale. Many buyers do not want to consider this type of availability.
I will be in constant communication with you right up to your departure. If you need assistance with travel, accomodations or car rentals please contact us or browse through the information that we have supplied on our Area Info tab under the heading Tourism and Travel.
Let's schedule some time together in advance. We have many Canadians coming down to shop for their vacation home or investment property especially during the months from December through April. To ensure that we give you undivided time while you are here, let's put our heads together to figure the best time for the Lavine Team to be available to you during this very exciting time!
Together we will view all of the available properties within our search parameters and once we find the right one we will suggest a good offer strategy, prepare the purchase contract, associated addendums, disclosures and then submit them to the seller's Realtor to start the negotiating process. We will be in close communication with you throughout the entire offer process which could take as little as a day to as much as a week or so in the case of a foreclosure type property or from 2-4 months in the case of a Short-Sale type property.
