This beautiful three bedroom two bath two car garage home in Melbourne, FL just sold and closed for $320k. The seller purchased it with me about two years ago. We fully updated the unit with new floors, updated kitchen, new bathrooms, patio pavers, a new roof and a newer a/c unit. He also updated all the windows to double pane. He had planned on making it his forever home...but plans change!He called me a few months ago and asked me to start searching for a new home that had a big private yard. We found the perfect home (and he bought it). Now this beauty needed to be sold. We sold quickly and closed on it!I love selling homes and helping people achieve their dreams!If you are looking for a home along the Florida Space Coast, do not hesitate to reach out, so I can help you achieve your ...

This is a question I often get when I represent buyers on new construction homes. While most builders will not (at least outwardly) discourage home inspections, they will make sure to have their sales force let the buyer know that the home has been inspected throughout the process. They will tell them about the 10-2-1 warranty...and many will talk about keeping a record of anything that is wrong and call them before the one year anniversary to fix all the 'little issues".I represent many new construction homes, and I always require my buyers to get an inspection. The fact is many issues will not show up in the first 12 months of ownership. I just represented a buyer on a home that was two years old and quite a few issues showed up that would have been caught had the owner had an inspect...

I get asked this question quite often. I always have the same answer...it depends.It seems like a straight forward idea. Have an inspector come out, have the home inspected, and use this inspection as a punch list to take care of repairs before the home even goes on the market. Here is the issue: You will be required (in most states) to disclose everything on the report. This includes those things you repaired, as well as those you did not repair. Maybe the report said the A/C unit is 10 years old and working well, but nearing the end of its useful life. This type of language is often used as a CYA phrase by the inspector in case a repair is needed shortly after the report. That A/C unit might have 3-5 more years of life, but the potential buyer could see it as a potential problem that ...

This is a situation that happened to me recently. I actually have respect for the Realtor who did this. I think everything we do comes down to how we present a potential deal to our clients (either buyers or sellers).I have a client looking to buy a home for a family member. It would be one she wants to completely remodel. We found a home my client loved, and we put in an offer. (full cash, short inspection period, reasonably close to list price, quick close). The listing agent let me know that the seller accepted another offer with what she told me was "better terms"My client was upset that she was given no chance to up the offer or sweeten the terms. The next question from my buyer was: Did the listing agent double side the deal? (unfortunately, I had to inform the buyer that, yes, th...
