Windermere, FL Real Estate News

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...

Exclusive Buyers Agent for Windermere Florida Attorneys do not advocate for two clients with opposing interests...so how is it that some Windermere Real Estate Agents claim to be able to represent or "partially" represent both the seller AND the buyer in the same transaction?  The honest answer is they can't!  If that were really possible, only one attorney would be needed for each courtroom.  Lets face it...the seller wants the highest price and to repair nothing...the buyer wants the lowest price and everything fixed...both want the most favorable terms...and the agent is stuck in the middle with a major conflict of interest. For more buyer information go to NAEBA.org the National Association of EXCLUSIVE Buyers Agents. So who is REALLY representing you?  Probably no one...  The only ...

The Windermere Real Estate Market is good...real good.  Properties are selling and inventory is shrinking.  The proverbial "supply and demand" is making multiple offers a common occurrence.  It is not unusual to get many offers on a nice home within a day or two, so sellers are getting to pick and choose which offer they like best.  Cash still talks loudest in Windermere Home Buying. Here is why a CASH offer is still "King" in Windermere... 1.  A CASH offer is usually a solid offer for the seller, so the seller can make real plans to move.  No financing to fall through at the last minute and no delays over an underwriter requesting a yellow copy of a bank statement from 5 years ago years, or the DNA of the mother-in-law who is co-signing. 2.  No appraisal requirement.  Even though the ...

Florida Transaction Brokers and the Illusion of Representation  If you think that a Florida Transaction Broker will really represent you, think again. The Florida Transaction Broker Notice form says that the licensee will ASSIST the party in a LIMITED form of representation.    "ASSIST" DOES NOT MEAN REPRESENT and "LIMITED" means you are giving up your right to undivided loyalty...note that the word licensee is used so that no one gets confused and thinks that they really do have an "agent". While the average person thinks that "represent" means that they are a client and have someone advocating for them, Florida inserted a very different meaning for the word "represent".  The FLORIDA DEFINITION SAYS: that "LIMITED" representation only means that a buyer or seller is not responsible for...

What are those dead animals doing inside Windermere home? I showed Windermere homes last week.  Nice Windermere neighborhood.  Dark Windermere house. We walk into the great room and froze...spread eagle on the pool table is a 12 foot white wolf skin complete with the head and teeth...as I quickly turn my head I see more dead stuffed foxes, and a bobcat...they were everywhere...even owls and who knows what else...I stopped looking...it was awful. OK, so I may just be a serious animal lover, but so was my buyer...and the color of the big wolf reminded her of her Siberian Husky Dog.  The energy was dreadful ... I was ready to burn sage.  Seriously. What a turn-off! What was the Windermere Home Seller thinking? Or bettter yet....did the listing agent even see the house?    We are not in Ala...

How about a good Home Inspection for Windermere Florida? I always recommend good home inspectors for Windermere Home Inspections and there is nothing in it for me besides a good home inspection.  I have been told that I am crazy to do that and I should just tell the buyer to find their own inspector.  Sure I could do that...I could just close my eyes and wash my hands of any liability but my fiduciary duties call for me to use my "expertise" in Real Estate to guide my buyer to use a competent home inspector for Windermere properties, or any property. I care if my buyer gets ripped off by a home inspector that does a lousy job...and there are a lot of lousy home inspectors out there inspecting homes. Experienced and Competent Home Inspectors are never the cheapest and they charge by the ...

Windermere and South Winter Garden             On the far west side of the Orlando MSA this developing area is growing by leaps and bounds. Just drive down the main road (SR 535/Daniels Rd.) and you will see the new home builder signs dotting the sides of the street as the area continues to build. Existing homes however, are still priced well below comparable new homes, offering opportunity for great deals. Located just north of Disney’s “cast member” entrance, the areas primary driver is the hospitality, tourism and entertainment market, with accompanying financial, small business, government, and real estate related industries. Windermere “The Town Amongst the Lakes” is one of the most premium communities in central Florida; known for multi-million dollar homes owned by local and nati...

Windermere Buyers Broker and Buyer Confidentiality If a Windermere Home Buyer client is rich and famous and another Windermere Buyer client is living on a credit card, they both receive 100% confidentiality from me.  There is no leaking of Buyer's Confidential information that is not in the buyers best interest. Home Buyer confidentiality means there is no bragging or blabbing about the buyer clients.  Total Confidentiality in Real Estate is rarely offered in Florida because "Transaction Brokers" cannot offer full Fiduciary Duties, and agents that represent the seller keep nothing about the Home Buyer confidential.  Total Buyer Confidentiality means you say as little as possible about your Buyer client as necessary and you keep anything personal about them private.
