Homebuyers have to get their hands a lil dirty
Jacksonville, FL - The homebuying market is starting to get a bit thin. Inventory is dropping a ton and prices are stable if not climbing in some cases so a buyer needs to be steeled for aggression. Quick decisions and execution is more important than ever.
Thats exactly what it takes and what my fabric is built for. When my customer's were in a multi bidding situation this weekend we had to get awfully creative to find the right price and the right deal. So using digital paperwork, Ipads, creative contract proposals, and a terrific rapport with the other Realtor we were able to put ourselves in a position to be the best deal for all parties. It doesnt work all the time, sometimes seller's can…

In case you didnt know it, this literally may be the best time to buy a home, ever in North Florida. All the stats show it, the rates defend it, and the prices are awesome. This quite possibly could be the day of the bottom.
By Diana Olick - CNBC Real Estate Reporter: For the first time in seven months, home prices as recorded on the S&P/Case Shiller Home price Indices saw month-to month gains. The press release even referred to it as a “spike.” A 1.3 percent rise for the 10 and 20 city composites. When you seasonally adjust, the number dips to 0.7 percent, but it is still in the positive, and these days in housing, that apparently constitutes a spike.
“Some of this is probably because this is the spring selling season really hitting…

Thanks Jeff and Kristie,
for winning a multiple offer short sale home on the water. I love buyers who understand that a list price is just that, a list price. When you guys heard there were other buyers interested in the same property you realized bidding list price wasn't going to get you into your new home. You then bid what you felt the home was worth to you and won the bid. You guys were great to work with, enjoy the water front and your new pool.

Jacksonville, FL - If you have a good Realtor (ahem) they may be able to tell you what "As is" means becuase it may not mean what you think it means. I hope that reads better than it sounds. See, many of these banks are selling their REO's and claiming "As Is" and that worries a lot of Jacksonville's homebuyers. Why? Because getting the loan is fight enough but imagine having to stroke some checks after you move in to get the home livable. That is what is the reality for some....but.
If you have a good Realtor (cough) they may be able to show you how the banks will actually pay for many of the repairs needed for the home. I have some customers right now who are buying a foreclosure and the bank to remain nameless but rhymes with Bells…

Fighting for a Home
versus Fighting for a Loan
Jacksonville, FL Real Estate - You know over the last few years we have watched the turmoil hit the housing market from close up and while many of you out there have experienced it as well we get the pleasure of experiencing the pain over and over again. Our customers have stories to tell and each one is unique but for both home buyers and home sellers they do have a few things in common and one of them is: Horrors Surrounding Home Financing.
Today's buyers should be steeled for the fight of trying to get a loan. They're going to peel you open and check everything. Just recently, one of my customers had to justify a $400 deposit that their son gave them, paying them back for a loan that they…

Jacksonville's Southside was at one point the hottest area or luxurious Jacksonville homes
Deerwood, Deercreek, James Island, Glen Kernan, and Jacksonville Golf are staging a comeback!
Jacksonville, FL - It has been a while since homebuyer's turned their eyes towards some of the luxurious homees on Jacksonville's Southside since most of them have seen 20 or so years since their heyday.

However, with interest rates so low and the recession seemingly looking to be loosening its grip people are beginning to see the value in buying a home in a great area, near the bottom and taking the time to make the home their own througha wise investment inside.…
