There are individual Homeowners involved.
There are probably multiple Banks involved.
Surley, there are many reasons for the hardship.
The timing undoubtedly a coincidence.
There cannot a conspiracy.
The only consistant thing is the economy.

It is a well kept small gated community and shows pride of ownership. It is centrally located 15 minutes away from the Pristine beaches of Boca Grande & also Manasota Key. It is on the West side of Rotonda and is a great area. Like many condos built around 2007 they had their challenges with the market but have come through it nicely. It is for sure one of the best values on a condo in this entire area & especially being a newer 3 bedroom.
Feel free to contact me direct if you would like to see this property.

When you see a property listed as a "pre-foreclosure" it is almost always a short sale. With these transactions you are dealing with a homeowner who is underwater on their mortgage and will be submitting an offer to the lender, or lenders, for less than the amount due from the seller.
These transactions can be lengthy and frustrating but do not have to be and it really depends on a number of factors, the number of lenders, who the lenders are, other liens on the property, who is negotiating the short sale, the willingness of the seller to provide timely information required by the lender; the list goes on. If you have some time and some patience and know how to play the game you can get some very good values through the short sale process.
I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to contact me at your convenience.
Always at Your Service,

The low cost of homes in the Rotonda area is a result of the housing boom/bust that hit SW Florida harder than many other areas of the country. We're at the bottom of that now, and prices are already rebounding slightly.
Insurance is a factor no matter where you live in FL, for many reasons. Coastal areas like Rotonda have a greater risk of wind damage and storm surge from a hurricane. However, the building codes, especially with newer homes as are typically found in Rotonda are among the highest in the country.
Defective drywall is part of the home inspection/due diligence with any house built or modified in the 2000's. Be sure to hire a home inspector who will check for tell-tale symptoms. Probably one in a hundred homes built here in that time frame actually have it, just make sure it isn't the one you decide to buy.

Recent home sales in Rotonda West have gone for $94 to $120 a sq ft for that size home. This is all dependent on age of home, what neighborhood in Rotonda West etc.
If you could provide me with more information on the particular home, I would be happy to provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis for the specific home you are interested. Without knowing more specifics it is difficult to give an exact number.

There has only been one lot sell in the last year on Caddy Rd. It was golf course frontage, which is the most expensive type lot, and it sold for $17,000.
In Rotonda, lots are selling from $8,000 (very low side) to $25,000+/-.
Can I help you with anything else?... more
Here is a web site that will give you some information on moving to Florida: http://www.stateofflorida.com/Portal/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=40
For homeowner insurance you can go to www.floodsmart.gov and type in the address of the home you are interested in. It will give you the flood rating, insurance estimates and insurance companies to contact. Homeowner insurance rates vary quite a bit based on location, size of home, age of home, structure of home, etc.
Lawn maintenance is only the cost of gas to mow if you do it yourself. If you are looking for someone to do it for you then rates vary for that as well. You can pay per time or pay for the year or by the month. It can range anywhere from $15-$20 per time and up.
Property management. You can go to www.rentmeflorida.com. They are located in Englewood. They offer different property management options, again the prices vary according to what you want them to do for you.
Another expense would be pest control. That can vary depending on what you get. You can have your lawn done or just your home. They have quarterly plans or you can do it yourself. Most people use a pest control company but others buy the pesticides at Home Depot or Lowes ad do it themselves. You would want to have general pest control as well as termite protection. We use Truly Nolen. http://www.trulynolen.com/

Why wouldn't a seller want a cash sale? No appraisals, no lenders to potentially deny borrowers the loan, faster closing.
Not that financing a purchase is bad. Most sellers will choose cash over finance due to less fuss, stress and waiting.... more
The HOA fees on Rotonda West are paid annually. Here is the Rotonda West homeowner association web site if you want to read more information on the community. http://www.rotondawest.org/
I would be happy to show you homes or send you information on the area if you would like.

Rotunda West is a large and desirable community in a close proximity to Englewood and Venice beaches so your interest in the area is justified.
The short sale process is initially between the buyer and seller...once they have reached agreement the process is between the buyer and the bank. With these transactions, the lenders will often try to negotiate the price upward to minimize losses.
Our recommendation when dealing with these types of sales is to "wordsmith" your offer to protect yourself from this as much as possible...requesting that the lender pay a portion of the closing costs as well as the total fee for professional services. This may not endear you to them but you will have made your point...and it they really want to sell the property....they'll come around!
Area "foreclosures" may be a better route to go: easier, faster, often cheaper, and definitely less stress and worry.
We would be happy to provide you with additional information on other local opportunities. Best of luck with your search.

If the agent knows about it they must disclose according to the Transaction Broker Notice in Florida.
Also, the seller must disclose if they know there is chinese drywall.
Many home inspectors are specializing in determinng if a given home has chinese drywall.
June, the link below will take you to the transaction broker notice. Please pay special attention to itme #4
I am also providing a link that will provide the chinese disclosure along with an explanation.
I hope that was very helpful to you.

To answer your question I conducted reports in the local MLS system using the criteria of a minimum of 15,000 square feet in all sections of Rotonda. Each section has different features, deed restrictions and desireability so you must tailor your results to the exact neighborhood. This report will be general for all sections but you will be able to look at the results and see where a home sold and for how much.
The first report is for all lots now for sale in Rotonda, larger than 15,000 s/f and under 1 ac. http://mfr.mlxchange.com/Pub/EmailView.asp?r=202047789&s=MFR&t=MFR
As you can see, prices start at under $5,000 in Rotonda Meadows, the least desireable section, and go much higher inside the circle, adjacent to golf courses and upscale homes.
This report is for larger lots that have sold in the last six months. Sale price is a much better indicator of value than asing. It shows what people are actually willing to spend, not what a seller is hoping to get. http://mfr.mlxchange.com/Pub/EmailView.asp?r=631896331&s=MFR&t=MFR
As you can see, sold prices range from as low as $6,000 in Rotonda Heights to $25,000 in Rotonda West, inside the circle.
I hope these reprots have been helpful. If you have a chance, visit our website where you can conduct your own searches. Our map search section is updated on a continual basis so you get up to date results.

Our information shows that 95 Sportsman Rd. a 3/2/2 pool home was listed in November, 2008 for $250,000 and is now and "Expired" listing.
We would be happy to provide you with additional information on this home, other similar homes, information on the general area, or the buying process.

Hi John - 15 Sportsman Terrace is listed ffor $119,500 and being a fair price all depends on who you ask. My professional opinion is that this is a very fair price if you can get the house for the $119,500. Of course having a professional home inspection would help with that assesment. You would need to know what if any problems there might be with the house and what is would cost to get the house into shape. Then we could form an educated opinion of a fair price. But again based on the listing it appears to be a very fair price for Rotonda. I ived in Rotonda for 4 years before building a home in South Gulf Cove. Keep in mind that the house is being sold as a short sale and after reviewing the listing I see no indication that the price has been approved by the lender. It's been on the market for 81 days and the price has been lowered TWICE since it was first listed back on 10/29/2009 for $159,900. So the seller and listing agent are being aggresive with the pricing which is a good sign for a buyer. We just hope the lender is as motivated. Should you want to take a look at the home and/or decide to take a shot at it contractually, let me know I'd be happy to assist you. I'm experienced with Short Sales and all in entails. As far as rental restrictions there are none but as you may know there are Deed Restrictions in Rotonda that all homeowners have to abide by, and that goes for tenants as well. Please fel free to contact me with any questions.
