Mary,

Being a small town any great deal on residential investment properties tend to sell quickly in Hobe Sound. We do have a great duplex available with advertised NOI of $13,700. The cap rate is a little over 6 so if that works for you be happy to send you all the details. Some deals pop up in south Stuart as well so a lot has to do with what your goals are.

We advise everybody when doing anything real estate to interview three brokers. Find out what they are capable of, how they are going to help you meet your goals and what it is going to cost you. Ask lots of questions. Paradise Sharks loves being interviewed and we dig answering questions so please feel free to contact us anytime.

Dear Owoto,

The local real estate market is starting to pick up some steam after a rather slow summer and fall. There are opportunities out there but you need to clearly identify your goals, have a broker on your team who can fully educate you as buying decisions need to be made quickly on the best opportunities and offers need to be written in a way to attract the sellers' attention. Here is a link to our latest market update and we do update our readers weekly so stay tuned.

jderek,

Not sure where you are getting your information but very few single family home communities would have an issue with your dogs. Condos, yes. Town home, yes. But single family no. Hobe Sound is home to some of the most spectacular and unspoiled beaches our state has to offer. Home to Jupiter Island, one of the wealthiest towns in America, the list of well know residents continues to grow. In Hobe Sound there are a myriad of waterfront communities east of Gomez Avenue making it a top location for boaters. The southernmost town in Martin County, Hobe Sound is perfect for those who want to get away from it all in a small town atmosphere in close proximity to the ”big city” life to their south. A visit to Blowing Rocks Preserve on Jupiter Island should be on everyones’ list of things to do. If you are seeking an active outdoor lifestyle the town of Hobe Sound is certainly one worth exploring.

Buying a home should be fun. However our industry has changed and many of these changes have taken customer service and fun out of the equation. A closing should be a celebration and here at Paradise Sharks we want to set you up with a game plan to success.

There are tools on Trulia for you to search listings to your hearts content but know that knowledge will only take you so far. Let’s start by discussing your goals and get into as much detail as possible. We will put you on a path to success and promise to keep fun in the mix.

Knowing what is happening in each neighborhood is critical to you finding the perfect home at the right price. We know the waters around here better than anybody and look forward to being of service to you and your family. We invite you to check out our blog for the most up to date and accurate information on the real estate market in Palm Beach and Martin County that you will find…..anywhere.

Feel free to call Tom Priester at 561 308-0175 and find out what buying with the sharks is all about. You will find out we are different…..by design.

Fins up………

Hi D'shea,

Gabe is correct, the Martin County Clerk's office would have that information. You can find that information on their website, www.martin.fl.us , and go to the Clerk of Court tab. Or, you can go to their offices and they will help you navigate through the paperwork.

However, be aware that just because at THIS TIME there isn't a lis pendens filed, does not mean that the owner is not in default of their mortgage. Also, it is advisable to make sure that the person who is representing themselves to be the landlord, actually OWNS the property. There are many rental scams out there (especially on craigslist). I would suggest that you find a realtor in the area to help you locate a rental property so that you are protected as a prospective tenant.

I hope this helps in your search

Debbie

Alma Kee answered:
Only if the Seller is willing to sign a contract with "you" can you have an opportunity to try to buy the property at a bargain price "before it is foreclosed upon". Nowadays the Sellers are able to get principal reductions and some will also opt to stay in the house and do a Deed for Lease and rent at below market rates. Some Sellers may try a Short Sale and it could take 2 years before the Short Sale will eventually sell.

After foreclosure then the property is normally listed by a Realtor for all to bid on.

All the best,
Alma Kee

Der,

Tranquility is a great little development just west of Banner Lake and south of Bridge in Hobe Sound. The association fees are running $341 per month and that number does include your building insurance and maintenance as well as your basic cable. Some tremendous units in here and still some very good values even as strong as the local real estate market has been.

Inventories in the community are higher than average mainly due to listing prices that are too high in relationship to market conditions. Over the past 12 months there have only been 7 sales in the community with a median sales price of $145,000. As of today there are 11 active listings with a median list price of $194,750. That being said there are some tremendous units here in a great location and now is probably a very good time to be negotiating a great deal in Hobe Sound.

I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.



Always at Your Service,

There is only one that I know of that some of the properties were identified with the Chinese Drywall, That was the "Oaks". The builder is still building in this community and is working with the owners on this problem. Further down the Street is Mariner Gardens, Not to be confused with Mariner Sands, or Mariner Village. Mariner Gardens is a townhome community that is reported to have a predominate problem with Chinese Drywall. Other than these, there may be some properties that were rehabbed, but they would be isolated cases. ... more

Not in Tequesta, but there are some in Hobe Sound. Off of Dixie, and in Stuart where you purchase the land and home together and yes pets are acceptable. BUT, for the same price you can get a nice condo and not have the worries of being blown away during a tropical storm!!!!!!! Best choice is a condo, you still have to pay the fees in a mobile home park . ... more
