On Tuesday, January 10, 2012, a group Green Realty Properties Realtors and our friends will be meeting at the office and then heading over to Green Wave Cafe for lunch. Green Wave Cafe is a delicious vegan restaurant in Plantation that I love, so I thought it would be a great idea to introduce everyone to it. I often get turned off faces when I mention vegan food, but this place has a delicious menu and I can't wait to share a meal with my friends.     After lunch we’ll be going to the Whole Foods in Plantation to do some shopping. For tomorrow only, 5% of all proceeds go to Abandoned Pet Rescue, Broward County's largest no kill animal shelter that is in need of the funds. I encourage everyone in the  area to please stop by and do your grocery shopping at the Plantation Whole Foods tomo...

  I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when I saw that tornados hit Plantation and Sunrise last night with 130mph winds! I’ve heard of tornados occasionally hitting Florida, but never this close to us and never this strong. Plantation and Sunrise are right in our backyard, so this is incredibly scary to me! We’re experienced hurricane preparers, but tornados are so sudden that I don’t think most South Floridians would know what to do if they were hit by one. Thank God no one was hurt, but there was a bunch of damage to homes, and I’m sure that these families don’t need the extra stress in this economic climate. I sincerely hope that the insurance companies will work quickly and the homeowners can be back home (and in their cars) in no time.   Photo Courtesy of Local 10 Photo Courtesy...

    The current U.S. housing market and national financial crisis has caused untold stress and heartache for many American families. Foreclosure is one of the most devastating financial challenges that a family can face and one that many times can be avoided. The options available to South Florida (Miami-Dade & Broward County) area residents for foreclosure are many. Following is a brief explanation of one of these solutions, including its benefits and drawbacks: Bankruptcy Many have considered and marketed bankruptcy as a 'foreclosure solution,' but this is only true in some states and situations. If the homeowner has non-mortgage debts that cause a shortfall of paying their mortgage payments and a personal bankruptcy will eliminate these debts, this may be a viable solution. Benefit:...

  What Affects Credit Scores? 7 Misconceptions If you’re trying to raise your credit score to get a good rate for a refinance or HELOC, you might be surprised by what affects—or doesn’t affect—your score.   More money improves your credit score False. Your level or sources of income don’t affect your credit score, although lenders may look at it when making loan decisions, according to the Fair Isaac Corp., the company that issues the commonly used FICO credit scores. Ownership of several credit cards can hurt your credit score Mostly false. Having many credit lines isn’t necessarily a bad thing, says credit expert Liz Weston, author of Your Credit Score. Multiple lines give you a favorable debt-to-available-credit ratio. But use them correctly: It’s best to keep any balances below 10%...

  What is a "Home Warranty Plan" & why YOU NEED ONE   Purchasing a home can be a daunting experience; especially if you're a first time home-buyer. There are many things to consider when buying a home. One important factor that should be at the top of your "to do list" is a home warranty plan. Home Warranty Plans Homes in Plantation Florida A home warranty is basically insurance on major appliances, and fixtures in a home. If something breaks or malfunctions; a warranty plan provides provisions for repairs or replacement. Protection is provided for items such as heating & air conditioning, ductwork, plumbing, electrical, and exhaust/vent/attic fans. You can custom the plan based on the type of coverage you would like to have. Other items that can be included on the plan are garbage disp...

Plantation attorney Eve Rosen, 55, was acquitted earlier today in a Miami federal courtroom of 13 counts of bank fraud, after a jury found she did not knowingly participate in a mortgage loan scam that cost three banks $7.9 million. From straw buyers to industry insiders, over 1,200 people have been arrested nationwide as part of "Operation Stolen Dreams," a mortgage fraud initiative of the U.S. Department of Justice reflecting the coordinated efforts of law enforcement in addressing the growing problem of crime within the mortgage industry.  Rosen was implicated in a scheme in which developer Jeffrey Phillips recruited South Florida straw buyers to create fraudulent loan applications in order to purchase vacant lots in North Florida.  Between 2006 and 2008, attorney Rosen was the closi...
