Certain citites and Broward County, have increased the surcharge for increase water usage. In the being of January I posted a new law about water usage. Only being able to water your lawns once a week. Here is a clip from the Sun- Sentinel newspaper."In Davie, residents who use from 6,000 to 9,000 gallons of water will pay a 25 percent surcharge. And residents using more than 9,000 gallons pay a 50 percent surcharge. Commercial customers are now paying a 45 percent surcharge because of the new restrictions.In Fort Lauderdale, water users will see the new charge on their February bills. The city's surcharge for water use during a drought is 17 percent for a residential user. For a home using 8,000 gallons in a month, that raises the bill from $15.29 to $17.26, according to city documents...

I know the majority of you will disagree with me. I love the cold and winter snow. In fact the "Colder it becomes" the more our telephone rings. We certainly don`t have to be told by the Media "Florida Home Sales" are on the move!   In fact 2008 is starting off with an astounding amount of Buyer Inquiries. Maybe, it`s the fact potential buyers see how much prices have dropped. Value counts!In many instances it`s actually feasible and affordable to purchase.Why is this occurrence happening?: Markets run in cycles. The old adage "What goes up,must come down" is upon us! I`ve mentioned many times before people were waiting on the sidelines for housing prices to decrease. They`ve studied the area, know what they`re looking for in advance, they realize as many Realtors do, the prices will no...

Here I am in sunny Key West vacationing for the Christmas and New Year's holiday. We all need some quiet and relaxing times in our wonderful business of real estate.While I was here I received two contract offers on property that was priced well below appraised value, and also these seller's have the "Have To Sell Now" attitude which makes my job alot easier to negotiate on behalf of my sellers.I presented the offers to the sellers'  and they gave me the counter offers and I promptly e faxed the counter offers. Thank God for faxes and email. We can do virtually everything without even being in the same county. This helps when we are vacationing, and just about every realtor I know was away for the holidays as well. This is definitely not the way I would present offers and counter offers...

The other day I was cleaning out my garage and notice I had three boxes of toys that were not being used by my children. My husband and I spoke with our kids and asked that we give the toys to kids who don't have what we heve. They said they were willing to give up these toys. Now my kids are 5, 3, and 1. So I was proud that they understood what we were telling them.I called around to see where we could take them. Kids in distree don't allow you to come to there shelters because of safety for the kids. So my question is, Where can we take the toys that my kids can pass them to other kids. I want them to see how happy they will make kids who don't have. I know this will bring joy to both them and our kids.Can anyone help me with this. I would greatly appericate it.Have a Merry Christmas ...

I received this story and thought I'd share it with you.Once upon a time there was a man who punished his five year old daughter for using a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became very angry when he saw the child put the wrapped box under the Christmas tree. "We barely have enough to get by," he said harshly, "and you used up the only wrapping paper we had in the house. Go to your room and stop being so wasteful."Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning, and said, "This is for you Daddy." The father was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found that the box was empty. "Don't you know that when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside the package?" The little girl l...

I recieved this photo in an email and found it the most adorable christmas photo.I hope you all enjoy your holiday. Would love to see some of your holiday photos and know some of your holiday traditions.As far as for me, my family gets together on christmas eve and have a great big dinner. I come from a big family so its alot of people. We all get dressed up and enjoy the night, music, dinner. Then on christmas day everyone comes to my house. So for two days we are all together.Christmas is my favorite holiday. I decorate the entire house, from inside to outside, and every year I purchase something new for both the outside and in. The only thing I do miss is the snow. Can anyone send me a bag full of snow so my kids can see it??LOL.

What are your foreclosure options?Contact your lender for possible loan modification and modify loan if possible (your best choice)If loan cannot be modified, contact a Realtor who is knowledgeable in Short Sale transactions to sell your home as a Short Sale (you do not have to pay Realtors commissions out of your pocket as their fee will be negotiated with your lender)Consult qualified attorney to see if Bankruptcy or Deed in Lieu of Foreclosures are optionsWhen do you research your options?When you first realize you can no longer afford your mortgage paymentsIf you have already missed mortgage payments do not delay being consulted on your optionsThe sooner you act the more time you will have to resolve your situation.  Keep in mind however, that a foreclosure can be stopped with a Sho...

Put your home on the market during the holidays!  A few suggestions on why to list your home during the holidays.Buyers  need to buy during the holidays and you stand the chance of selling your home new year with quality homebuyers relocating to south Florida before the years end.  People who look for a home during the holidays are more serious buyers. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home.  Less demand means less money for you. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays, people want to feel like purchasing a home during the holidays is most special and rewarding. What better gift than ...

As an ongoing component of Coral Springs Water Management Dept. is to provide safe drinking water to their customers.  the City of Coral Springs Utility Division will perform its annual flushing program from November 5 through November 19. During this time, the Water Utility Division will temporarily change its method of chlorinating the water supply. This routine program will enable the Water Utility to comply with the requirements set by the Department of Environmental Protection. As a result, you may notice a chlorine taste or odor in the tap water. The areas that will be affected will be from Royal Palm Boulevard north to Wiles Road, and north of Wiles Road to the Sawgrass Expressway from Riverside Drive east to State Road 441."These temporary conditions should not be harmful to you...
