So I was reading the paper today and came across an article that Broward County Property Appraisers are going to business that owe in back taxes. The county is looking to collect around $8 million in back taxes. FORT LAUDERDALE - Tax collectors hit the streets Wednesday in a sweep of hundreds of business -- demanding they pay delinquent bills or have their equipment and furnishings sold at auction. Customers were exercising at a downtown Fort Lauderdale gym when collection agents posted a lien for $9,900 in back taxes on its doors in the morning. Workers at a Quizno's sandwich shop on nearby Las Olas Boulevard were preparing for the midday rush when the agents arrived there moments later to tape a lien for $3,400 to its front door. Broward County hopes to collect up to $8 million in pas...

OK  I know that many of you think that as a REALTOR, we shouldn't have a job on the side. Let me ask you this? Does having a job make me less of a REALTOR? My answer to you would be ABSOLUTELY NOT! First let me explain.... I have a job, had this job when I got into Real Estate and plan on keeping way after business picks up. I enjoy the job I have and I enjoy Real Estate. But having a job doesn't make me less of a REALTOR to my customers, and quite frankly, my customers know I work. I tell them up front, but I also tell them they can always reach me even if I am at work. None of my deals and I mean none gets neglected. I keep all my files with me and make my calls when I need to make them. I keep on top of them as if I was in the office or at home. If a customer calls me and leaves a me...

We found a Turtle in front of my house the other day. We got a tank for it and we named him Prince Comit. The kids are so happy about it, they won't leave him alone. I am happy to see it. It is a baby turtle and they will be able to watch him grow. So here is a short clip of the kids putting the turtle in his new HOME (tank).

Being a REALTOR and being a mom can get hecked at times. Inpsections, buyers, sellers. You know how things can go and being a mom is my number one priority. So there are times that as you may know from previous blog post, that I take my kids along. This particular day was no exception, but this time I decided to take my Flip camera with me to share a day with you. I had an inspection to go to and took the boys along. Hope you enjoy A Day as a REALTOR mom!   Jeannette Neerpat9000 Sheridan StreetPembroke Pines, Fl 33024www.Neerpat.com Would you like a Free Market Analysis?

You are ready to buy your First Home, you found your Realtor not you want to know the next step? Getting your Pre – Approval letter. Here is some information on Pre – Approvals. Know the steps you need to take, know what you are getting into before hand. You don’t want to take any risks after you bought your First Home..... Signing on the Dotted Line What is it? “Pre-approval” means you have met with a loan officer, your credit files have been reviewed and the loan officer believes you can readily qualify for a given loan amount with one or more specific mortgage programs. Based on this information, the lender will provide a pre approval letter, which shows your borrowing power. You can visit as many lenders as you like and get several pre-approvals, but keep in mind that each one carri...

So you know you are ready to buy your first house. But now you don’t know which way to go. Who do you work with? Do you get a Mortgage broker first and how do I find one?   Most people have friends who know a REALTOR or who have worked with one. My first advice is to ask your friends and family members to help you with that one. Its better to go with someone you know has worked with a friend, better references that way. If you don’t know of anyone that does, Internet search is your next option. Find someone local to the area you are looking at. Not every agent works all areas. Someone from Miami may not know the Coral Springs neighborhood or stats, and vise versa. Does the agent specialize in working with First Time Homebuyers? Interview a few and see which one you click with. Things r...

OK you know its pretty bad when another REALTOR says to you after they call for showing instructions and I quote "Thank you for answering the phone!" You see I got a call yesterday for showing instructions on one of my Rental listings in Hollywood. I was on the other line but asked that they would hold while I answered the call. Very pleasant lady on the other end wanting to get more info and lockbox combo. I gave her all the info and told her good luck and thanks for showing. Her reply to me was thanks for answering the phone. Why do so many agents not answer their phone. Do they not want to get the house sold or rented? How many sellers or landlords are not getting the proper service they need? I know I am preaching to the choir on this one, but come on people get with the program. AN...

Looks like there are several schools that will be changing there time schedules. As a parent with a child in Elementary school I believe in knowing ahead of time. So I wanted to get this info to you before the start of the new school year. I know we haven't finished this one yet, but you can never be too prepared!!   Heads up, students and parents: 15 Broward schools are changing their start and end times for the 2009-10 school year. In addition, two new elementary schools opening in August are setting their schedules for the first time. The School Board must approve the schedules on Tuesday, but they are unlikely to tinker with the times. One of the new elementary schools is located on the corner of Commerical Blvd and Pine Island Road. It still doesn't have a name yet. The schools aff...

If you have questions here are some answers. There are many people who still do not understand how the credit works. These answers were listed on the FAR website and it has great explainations. · The deduction is worth 10 percent of a home's value up to $8,000, which means all homes worth more than $80,000 could qualify for the maximum amount.   · There is an income limit to qualify. A married couples' modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) should be under $150,000 and single filers' MAGI should be less than $75,000.   · Partial tax credits may be available for married couples with MAGI incomes over $150,000 but under $170,000, and single filers with incomes over $75,000 but under $95,000.   · If married couples file separately, they can both claim 5 percent of the home purchase ($4,000 ...

I am watching The TodayShow and one of the places they are at the Statue of Liberty. As many of you know that she has been closed since 9/11. But it seems that she will be opening up again. Please tell me this is true. I remember going there on school trips. I have been back to NY several times and wanted to take the kids there. But you were not able to climb up to the crown. Well as it is now announced the Statues Crown will now be open as of July 4. What a day to choose the same day she has in her hands. How amazing is that?!?! I am so happy to hear this. And I will be there at the end of July and will be making a speacial trip to see her! Yeah She is open again! Selling Houses and Creating Homes!

OK I am so excited I can't contain myself!! My favorite person in the world is getting married!!! MY DAD!!!! He is getting married on June 6 in Las Vegas!!! He met this lady and it was love at first site, REALLY!! He met here this past Christmas. When he came home it was like a new man. I asked him what was up with him. He said I met someone, as who looked at me to see what kind of expression I was going to give him. He was like a little school boy! I said OK, tell me about her. And he was going on and on. She came down one weekend and I got to meet her. She really only speaks spanish, but we got to talk since of course I speak spanish, but my husband doesn't. She understands some english, so they got to talk a little. She then came back down for my son's birthday. She bought him a cake...

OK the other day you read my rant on not being able to find my buyers a house. We went back and forth and all over Coral Springs, then to Plantation and then ended up back in Coral Springs to a house I showed them a day before and recorded for them a week prior. I had tried to figure out what was it that I couldn't find. I read all the signs they were giving and pulling up homes that I thought that suited them perfectly. When we came across this one in Coral Springs I thought this is it. But at the time they still didn't feel it. After another day and a half we went back to that house. We sat in the backyard near the pool. The house was vacant so this was easy to do. There was a patio set. The wife kicked off her shoes and sat by the pool and said this is it! I pulled out the contract a...
