Bank of America and Green Tree just approved this Indian Lake condo unit, Destin Florida for short sale. This was an investment property, never occupied by the owner. Here are the details: Bank of America – Senior Lien – Balance: $165,000 appr Green Tree Servicing – Junior Lien – Balance $16,500 Sale Price: $65,000 appr NOTES: In this case, Green Tree had recently taken over the servicing for the junior lien, which was previously held by Bank of America. We asked Bank of America for $3000 to pay the junior lien, Green Tree, from the sale to release its lien. They agreed. Green Tree was going to issue an approval, but would not mark the account settled or "paid in full for less than full balance", for the $3000. I asked Green Tree what it would take to “settle” the account, so the selle...

Almost everyday I hear this statement on my phone, "what do you mean the isn't the Destin Pelican Beach Resort"? I go on to explain that this is one of 342 units at the resort. About 4 years ago I purchased a condo in destin(on rental program now) and immediately started a blogger blog advertising it. My Destin Pelican Beach Resort blog looks like a regular website. During the last 4 years I have learned so much here in the "rain" about long tail key words, key words in post title, key words, fresh information, keywords in photos, the use of free directories, climbing up the page rank of Google, how to dominate page one of Google, do blog comments pass link juice, adding header tags to blog posts, use of organic links and the list could go on and on. Early on I also submitted several se...

Re-inspections Are Smart Business | Destin Realtor It is my #1 goal to make my clients happy.  In most real estate transactions, it is important that a good inspector is hired and it makes good sense to have the inspector come back after all repairs are made for a re-inspection.  I have a decent understanding of construction, but I am far from an expert and this is why I do not like verify that repairs have been made.  About a year ago, I asked my inspectors to include the re-inspection in their proposals to my clients.  I close anywhere from 40 to 50 transactions in a year and I have learned that inspections and repairs can be one of the hardest parts of our job. You will definitely have an upset client if the repairs are not done or done correctly.  it really is smart business to remo...

This gorgeous home in Kelly Plantation, Destin, Florida is now under contract in only 30 days.  What are my favorite things about 4517 Olde Plantation Place? The kitchen...  marvelous slabs of black granite counters, an enormous center island, the tube light above giving just the right ambience.

  Amazing renovation to this 1900+ sq ft 3 bedroom gulf front luxury condominium.  Oceania offers 60  panoramic ft of floor to ceiling glass (the average gulf front homesite in Destin is 50ft!).  This condo building constructed in 1996 did everything right in terms of quality and allowing the owners as much view as possible.  Oceania 202 was totally renovated a few years ago bringing an updated/modern kitchen, and all bathrooms.  Oceania is a gated development which offers a quiet haven for primary and 2nd home owners….but also has excellent rental income for those looking to offset their ownership.  I am providing below a link to the details and photos for Oceania 202.

Destin FL Beachfront Homes For Sale | Condos | Lots Destin and Hwy 30A Beach Front properties are very popular right now because they are available at record low prices.  I stay very busy with Beachfront buyers and sellers on the Emerald Coast.  I recently set up a web site dedicated solely to Destin and 30A Beach Front Real Estate and the address is www.DestinGulfFrontHomesForSale.com.   Beach Front Real Estate can be very complex and it is important that you hire an agent that has experience working with buyers and sellers of waterfront properties.  When purchasing Destin and 30A Beach Front, you should carefully consider the items below. What is your flood zone? is it in a COBRA designated area? Is there a sea wall? What is the Elevation? Did they use the correct type of construction...

Weather has been gorgeous at the beach the past few weeks.  If you have been lucky enough to sneak away and travel here you will know what I mean.  Water temps are warm and colors crystal blue and green along the shore line.  This time of year Cobia migrate along our coastline on their way to spawn at the mouth of the Mississippi River and Louisiana coast.  I took some time to enjoy the weather and fish this week and landed this 75 pounder just off the beach.  The 'Crab Cruncher Classic' Cobia Tournament at Harbor Docks is this weekend.  If you are in town swing by the docks to see all the fish being weighed in!

Beautiful top floor condo now under contract in one of Destin Florida's finest gulf front condo developments, Oceania.  Oceania is located on Gulf Shore Drive in the heart of the Holiday Isle area of Destin Florida.  This location has been extremely popular for owners and guests due to it's proximity and access to both the gulf and Harbor.  Oceania sits gulf front with expansive beach access, gulf front pool, workout facility, and views of the East pass and Harbor.  They just simply do not make condos like Oceania anymore.  Sweeping panoramic East to West views, floor to ceiling glass, and some of the largest patio/decks on the gulf.  This condo was a great opportunity for this buyer....but there are still a few remaining.  Please find below a link to view all available Oceania Condos ...
