Franklin W. Chase Memorial Library - Windermere, Florida A quiet park like setting in the center of the Town of Windermere is home to the Franklin W. Chase Memorial Library. With an inviting wrap around porch, the library officially became a branch of the Orange County Library system in August 1991. The library was the recipient of many local donations, including the generous donation from the Franklin W. Chase Family - which enabled the construction of the new building in 1991. With several reading areas, a computer center, informational and entertainment DVD's, story programs, and a library meeting facility, it serves as a perfect location to enjoy a quiet moment, while reading your favorite book.

How to negotiate buying a home in Windermere Florida ... 1.  Decide how badly you want the Windermere house.  If the house is just the run of the mill and you don't care if you get the house, than you can gamble with your offer.  But if this is the Windermere home of your dreams or one-of-a-kind Windermere property, then stop playing games and buy it.  While you play hardball, your Windermere dream home might just be sold to another Windermere home buyer who recognizes the home value and moves quicker.  2.  Look at the home comparable properties of what has sold, but also look at what else is available in the community, and what is under contract waiting to close.  Is there an adequate supply of homes with your criteria?  When there is no supply in a desirable part of town, that makes t...

Buy a Home in Windermere without a pushy realtor... I love selling buyers homes in Windermere Florida, but hate pushy realtors, high pressure real estate agents, or SALESY agents...in fact I hate anyone in real estate that has a big mouth. You know the kind... Those that try to strong arm you into buying a property that you have no interest in buying...  Those that try to twist your arm when they show you their company listing... Those that try to convince you that this house is such a deal, that there are several offers on the home, but they will "get your offer in the door" if you move quickly and sign on the home contract dotted line today... OH PLEASE... Last week one of those pushy realtors opened up a luxury property in Windermere and proceeded to "SELL" the Windermere Home like h...

  Thurs evening in the gated community of Waterfort Pointe in Windermere FL, this 7,000 sq ft home under construction was destroyed by fire.  Investigation is underway but possibly could be arson.  Here is a picture of a home that is in that community that could be similar to the one the burned.  This home is 5800sq ft.  If it is found out to be arson, everyone pays with higher insurance rates.
