You have more time than you probably think you have. You've missed a few months of your mortgage payments, you've received the default notices, you're smack dab in the middle of a foreclosure, you've been summonsed to court, you've received an auction date and your home hasn't sold. Now what? You're really anxious with your home not selling.  If you're attempting to sell your home, with a Realtor, through a short sale that has been approved for a short sale by your lender, do you know that your lender can be approached with a strong approved buyer the day before the scheduled auction sale date and you could stop the foreclosure if the buyers offer is approved? Keep in mind that your lender does not want to own your home. They are in the business of loaning money not owning homes so if y...

  Coral Springs became a city on July 10, 1963. The first structure was a covered bridge, built in 1964 at  NW 95th avenue, off Wiles road. It was painted red and no there was no other building in the whole city at the time. Hurricane Cleo passed this bridge in August 1964 and due to its strength, it was not damaged.The first building was the Coral Bridge Properties Real Estate office, opened in 1964. They developed the entire city of Coral Springs including roads, canals and parks.In 1966, the Real Estate office became too small so they gave it to the city of Coral Springs, who moved it to the NW corner of Wiles road and Woodside dr, where it became the first Police station.By 1972, it was too small for the police department. The police moved to a bigger station and the building became...

Just last week, I was working with a client who I was showing multiple houses to.  While showing homes in a particular neighborhood, we came across a Buy Owner listing.  I showed the listing to my buyers, who ultimately put in an offer which was accepted by the owners.  The owners agreed to pay me a commission for bringing them a buyer.  A week later, I was browsing the Buy Owner website to see the listing that my clients were purchasing and to my amazement, I saw an Under Contract status on the listing, similar to the photo above.  I thought, "What did Buy Owner do to help facilitate this deal?"  Isn't this false advertising because my buyers never saw the listing on the website: BuyOwner.com and only came across the listing because of the sign in the front yard as we were looking at o...

You know you have to do something about your home that's facing foreclosure but where do you start? First and foremost, you need to contact a REALTOR and not just any REALTOR but a Broward County REALTOR who specializes and consults in avoiding foreclosure through a short sale. You want to make sure that your REALTOR has received the proper training and is knowledgeable in the negotiations of short sales. Most REALTORS haven't received the training, as most REALTORS do not want to be bothered with short sales as they require a lot of extra work that is not typically required in a normal real estate sales transaction and their outcome is not guaranteed.  It really takes a special person who wants to help the distressed homeowner. I know that I will have greater fulfillment in my life if ...

Be a Real Estate Investor - 10 Important Secrets When it comes to investing, everybody has certain goals andaspirations. However, we have found that there are certain guidelinesevery aspiring real estate investor needs to know: 1. Compare Property Values and RentsFinancial statistics only go so far; the best measure of a property'smarket value is often the sale prices of nearby properties. The sameholds true for area rents. A low price can often be justified by areasonable rent; renters who can afford a high rent can afford to buy instead, so reasonably priced rent is a need. 2. Be Careful - Tax Laws May ChangeDon't base your tax investment on current tax laws. The tax code is constantly changing, and a good investment is a good investment regardless of the tax code. The right property ...

Purchasing a home that is being sold by the seller as a short sale can provide a buyer with a wonderful opportunity but keep in mind these things:The short sale properties quite often are priced below market value. Wow, so imagine investing in a property that has the possibility of instant equity.  A number one reason and benefit of purchasing a short sale home.The seller is a distressed homeowner and will not have any money to contribute to closing, repairs, etc. And the lender does not allow the seller to have any money to contribute.  With this in mind, you cannot expect the seller to contribute any money in any way. You as the buyer will contribute all money to transaction.You will be purchasing the property "As is". This means any and all repairs that you see are needed will be you...

There are many financial and personal reasons why you should own your own home rather than rent. The obvious reasons include pride of ownership, building your own equity instead of someone else's, no more landlords, and of course the tax benefits you reap. There are a multitude of other reasons why owning your own home can make your life better. One of the most overlooked reasons for owning a home is the freedom you get once you have achieved this major goal in life. Many first-time homebuyers find that once they have bought a house, many other aspects of their personal life seem to fall in place. The security and piece of mind that come with home ownership is a great accomplishment in many people's lives, and once they have overcome the obstacles, they find that other goals they had se...

Buying a new home can be an exciting time, whether it's your first home or your fifth. However, your savings, your credit rating, and your financial freedom are all on the line when purchasing a new home. You want to feel comfortable when it is time to sign on the dotted line and feel good about the home you are about to purchase. It's important not to let your emotions cloud your judgment when you set out to buy what is most likely the largest single item of your life - your new home. Before you get to actually looking at homes, take the time to establish your needs and wants. Make a careful assessment of what you absolutely must have in your new home compared to what would just be nice. Be as specific as possible when determining your needs prior to purchase. It will save you much tim...

You've signed the contract and are looking forward to moving into your new home, but there are a few steps that cannot be overlooked.

The seller will then be notified of these problems and will usually agree to take on the repairs.Set up an appointment with your mortgage consultant and be prepared with the following financial statements: W-2 forms or signed tax forms for the past two years, copies of your most recent bank stateme...

This report will inform you of ways you can purchase a home with no money up front.If you find yourself caught in the endless cycle of paying your landlord's mortgage, why not take the time to examine what it would be like to build your own equity in a home and stop paying rent?

Getting pre-qualified for a loan by a professional lender ...

Anyone who has ever had a bank account, mortgage, credit card, car loan, or account with a retail store will invariably have a credit rating. Most information in your credit rating comes from companies you have credit with, as well as from certain public records such as tax liens, bankruptcies, judgments and lawsuits. It is important to know and understand your credit rating, how the information is compiled, and how it affects your ability to acquire a loan for your new home.Credit reports are usually divided into five sections:1. Your credit history.2. Who has reviewed your credit history.3. Information you have provided for the credit company.4. Specific identification information about you.5. Explanatory notes and comments.Different states have different requirements and it is import...
