It depends on how things were worded in your purchase agreement. Most builders have something to the effect that if there are cosmetic issues you must still close and cannot force the builder to escrow money for the repairs. The roof is a different topic. My suggestion is to contact a local FL real estate attorney to review your contract and tell you what options you have open to you. ... more

I advise anyone purchasing any real estate to obtain title insurance. Especially when purchasing a property from a bank.

I suggest talking to a Mortgage Broker... not a Bank about getting a loan.
If you have established credit again, like a credit card, car payment ect... after your bankruptcy then you should be good to get another Mortgage.

Good Luck

I did a quick search for you in the MLS for similar homes and here are the results: Active listings (your "competition") are listed for $242,500-$340,000. Pending lists are listed for $300,000-$389,000. Recently sold listings, within the past 6 months, sold for $242,500-$325,000. The average marketing time for a home like yours, if priced at market value, should be on for 65-125 days. For a thorough market analysis, please call or email me so I can arrange to see your home and provide you with a more accurate estimate.

Best wishes!

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Annette Lawrence answered:
In most instances the listing agent and the owner have already discussed the types of offers that may be received that will prove to be a waste of everyone's time.

Such offers could be:
1. Offer 80% or less of 'market value.'
2. Offers close or equal to the zestimate.
3. Offers contingent on selling existing home without executed contract
4. Seller financing
5. Funded by unreliable banks.

Because laws in Florida are extremely biased in favor of the buyer, it becomes increasingly important to insure the buyer is vetted and serious, otherwise the seller can inherit REAL DAMAGE as the result of a seller who did not have serious intention.

It will not matter what agent submits the offer, the result will be wasted time and effort. In such cases the agent for the buyer should apply a per/submission fee to keep things real.

If you are looking for a home to purchase, you want to look at the listings that say For Sale, and Not Lis Pendens or For Rent. I would be happy to help you find a home.

On the top right of any Trulia page you can see your name when you're logged in. there is a drop-down arrow right next to your name. Point to it and there will be a drop-down menu - Click on My Profile - On the right hand side under the green Trulia banner/ header click on "Edit my profile" - Your profile page will open up with the "Personal Information" field open, but right above that there is the Email and Password category, which is not opened automatically, so you might have overlooked it. To the right of the category header there's a " + " sign (almost transparent), click on the " + " sign and "Email and Password" field will open up.

Here you can change your email address and/ or your password - Click on Save.

Hi Jacquelyn!


Just Friday, the fast, efficient, friendly folks at Goodwill Industries collected furniture for my sellers from Sunset Towers in Downtown Sarasota on the 8th floor because the buyer was renovating and bringing in their own stuff Monday.

Call them directly to find out when they service your zip code: 941-351-8946.

Hi Tim,

That depends on if you are the buyer or the seller. I'm going to assume you are the seller and if that is the case you would be responsible for tax on the deed at .007 times the sale price. ... more

Janet,

There is not as much difference between a Canadian buyer and a US buyer as you might think. The offer,contract process is the same, the biggest difference is in the financing arena. But since this is Florida and we happily sell many homes to fellow Canadians there are many with the experience you are looking for. Ask around with friends and family or local Canadian Clubs for some personal references. ... more

Hello Carol,

Charlotte County has records on many homes that have been built after 1989 or so. You can call the building department and ask them, they are very helpful and can even email it to you if they have it. You can ask the current owner if they have a copy or you can do it the old fashion way and pay to have a survey company do one for you, it will cost you between $150 and $250 depending on who you pick. ... more
