The most important thing a buyer can do is first of all work with a buyer broker.â€ As stated by AARP and the Consumer Federation of America from REALTORÂ® News.
Having lived in Florida since 1965 and selling real estate in Southwest Florida since 1981 I am happy to talk with you about the different areas. Call me anytime. Iâ€™m friendly and easy to talk to. I am Beverly Howe, the original Florida Buyer Broker and one of the only â€œgenuineâ€ buyer brokers in all of Southwest Florida. There is NO extra/hidden or additional cost for you to obtain my specialized â€œexclusiveâ€ buyer broker services in your real estate transaction.

There is no obligation required of you to access this important free educational information on my homepage. The site is informative but does not give the buyers the benefit of my 30 years experience working in the Southwest Florida real estate market unless they call me to schedule time for me to work with them. So, donâ€™t hesitate to call. I am the broker who will actually assist you in finding the best property in your price range and have extensive experience working in 2 counties to help you make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck. Itâ€™s best to schedule my time in advance.
On my general â€œSearch Propertyâ€ link you will be able to search property anywhere in Florida. Please see â€œSearch thru MLS Dataâ€ on my homepage to for instructions on how this search link works.
On the â€œSearch thru MLS Dataâ€ on my homepage you will find instructions on how to access the different searching options including local REALTORÂ® MLS data to â€œsearch like an agent.â€ Once you set up a profile on these links, you can save your search and you will automatically be notified when new listings or price changes become available which meet your criteria. It is important that you give yourself at least 15 minutes to sign in and complete an entire search prior to leaving the system in order to set up the program properly. Your search will then be saved and you will be able to change your criteria anytime in the future. I recommend scrolling down the criteria choices and putting a â€œdonâ€™t wantâ€ in the short sale box. You want to get a good idea of what is available, donâ€™t base your decision to buy on a short sale.

Many homes built between 2000 and 2009, including some renovated homes in Southwest Florida were built with Chinese Drywall. I hope you will take time to learn more about this serious problem at the Chinese Drywall link on my homepage.
I assure you it does not cost you more to obtain my specialized buyer broker services. In the State of Florida only a buyer broker can legally negotiate for a lower price for the buyer and must take care of the buyersâ€™ best interest through out the transaction. A buyer broker is required to give the buyer loyalty, confidentiality, care and diligence, accounting, disclosure of all known pertinent facts and your financial status is protected.
This is my 30th year selling real estate in the Southwest Florida. I have been working as an â€œexclusiveâ€ buyer broker since 1993 and licensed to sell real estate in Florida since 1981. Please feel free to call me anytime on my toll free number 1-800-283-7393.
I am friendly and easy to talk to.

An avenue to look at is to have you and your mother on the deed, as Joint Tenants in the entirety,with right of survivorship. I suggest, you also verify with a Florida Attorney.
In this case she will qualify for the 55 plus community.

I would be pleased to do some research for you on this question. Would you mind providing me with a little additional information? What community are you looking at? What is your objective in purchasing 55+ at this time? Do you plan to use it as a vacation home for you and your family? A future retirement home for your mom? I would be pleased to work with you to achieve your objectives.
Thanks for the question.
