Windermere, FL Real Estate News

Francisco Orchilles, Orlando Short Sale expert with Keller Williams Classic Realty, has recently sold another Bank of America short sale listing, with no deficiency towards the home owner, in the town of Windermere, FL Orchilles began the short sale process by assuring that the home seller’s hardship would be sufficient enough to warrant a short sale on their home. As one of Orlando’s leading short sale specialists, Orchilles was able to analyze the seller’s needs and, using his strong negotiation skills, was able to get the deficiency waived by Bank of America.

Similar to what the Marine slogan says..."I only want a few good home buyers" for Windermere. Last week someone asked me how many home buyers I was working and then proceeded to tell me that they are working 25 home buyers...Is that really something to brag about?  Not in my book, because it is simply IMPOSSIBLE to do a good job or even a halfway good job...even half that amount is too many at one time. Working with home buyers is not running an assembly line...it takes time and effort and doing an expert job means you do not take on more bodies than you can handle. I do not want every home buyer that has a pulse, I just want a few quality home buyers... ready to buy a home realistic about buying a home have the funds to buy a property appreciate my time, effort and hard work If you are...

My Windermere Home Buyer Client will never see me sweat...even if I am sweating.  Windermere Home Buyers hire me to solve their problem, not create more stress. Lets face it...if you are doing a good job for the buyer and trying to get the most you can for them, there will always be some level of conflict.  I like to stick to business, remain calm and simply promote the buyers position.  I do not call up the buyer and give them a "blow by blow" report on how unreasonable the seller is or how annoyed the listing agent was.  My job is to stay cool and just solve the problem.  I have found that agents that "flip out" over an issue, have clients that will follow their lead and do the same.  I do not want my home buyer client to sweat...ever...which is why my Windermere home buyer client wil...

That wacky Orlando Sentinel….HOA rules   That wacky Orlando Sentinel….HOA rules http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-beth-kassab-hoa-rules-101112-20121010,0,1907203.column   OK….now they’ve done it.  That wacky, left-leaning Orlando Sentinel has gone and let columnist Beth Kassab write another one of those dang common sense pieces.  In this one, she addresses HOA rules both generally and as they specifically relate to the case of a local Windermere lady who has chosen to disregard the rules of her Summerport neighborhood’s association and plant Bahia grass instead of the prescribed St. Augustine or Zoysia. Kassab has written a number of real estate-related columns over the years- some of which I’ve agreed with, some I haven’t.  The job of a columnist being to offer opinions and commen...

Home values in Windermere, FL are among the highest in the country...maybe even the world!  Real estate in the 34786 zip code is among the most coveted and sought after around.  Home values in this area are greatly influenced by the value of the land.  Windermere is a small Orlando Neighborhood, tucked away among the Butler Chain of Lakes that has been around for quite some time.  Many lake front homes have access to a system of 13 bodies of water, all connected for the enjoyment of this luxury home market.  For this reason, the value of a home in Windermere is significantly higher than in any of the neighboring communities.  The seller of one of these luxury homes has to keep in mind that the buyer of his house will most likely not be an Orlando resident.  The price of the Windermere h...
