Rosedale Golf & Country Club in Bradenton Florida Florida is one of the most appealing properties which grace the Bradenton real estate market. This results from its association with the Hunt Group, headed by Robert Hunt, a developer and builder with more than thirty years experience in the real estate. Its appeal likewise rests on the property's location which is less than a mile away from Interstate 75. This allows easy transit to and from various points in the urban centers of Bradenton, Sarasota, Tampa, and St. Petersburg.  A 22,000-square-foot clubhouse further gives a premiere billing to the Rosedale real estate complex consisting of 440 acres.

The Concession Golf Club is one rare star in the Bradenton real estate market in Florida.  This club’s idea germinated from that magical moment in the 1969 Ryder Cup when Jack Nicklaus conceded a putt to Tony Jacklin for them to tie their classic final round.  Two cities, Bradenton and Sarasota, can take pride in hosting this tribute to friendship through golf, as The Concession is located between their boundaries.  This unifying location also comes as more than a blessing, for in very practical terms it  gives the golf enclave’s residential community in close proximity to the commercial and business centers of Bradenton and Sarasota, and to their hubs for entertainment, culture, arts, and sports. Moving to and from the community is easy from Interstate 75 that is only two miles from Th...

Our team had a transaction (on the listing side) recently when the buyer, only a week before the closing was scheduled, decided to give her employer '2 weeks notice' ... since "she was planning to move anyway!"  Of course this action delivered a 'death blow' to that particular transaction. After having that unfortunate experience, I thought that assembling a list of things that a homebuyer should NOT do before closing on a new home purchase  might be helpful to others. Now most of these things might seem like common sense to most people ... and they are common sense.  But sometimes stating the obvious is absolutely the best insurance for successful communication between a home buyer and their agent. That being said... Here' a list of 15 things NOT to do if you're buying a home: Buy a ne...
