Cware,

Considering many frame homes have survived the hurricanes of the past. I would say yes. However its important to keep your home termite free and maintained.

Sue,

If you are looking for a single family home to rent in North Palm Beach you will find very few with only 2 bedrooms. Over the past 12 months a total of 6 two bedroom homes have rented through the real estate community. They rented at monthly prices between $1,100 and $2,100 with a median rental price of $1,450.

With a 3 bedroom home you have many more options with a total of 22 rented over the past 12 months at prices ranging from $1,250 to $6,500 and a median rental price of $1,750.

Of course, this information is just an overall snapshot and there are a multitude of factors determining what a home will, or should, rent for. The rental market for single family homes in North Palm Beach, and throughout the Northern Palm Beaches, remains red hot and if we can be of assistance in any way please fell free to give us a call.


Fins up.....

When you want to make an offer on a house, the price should be based on the recent sale, homes under contract and homes on the market. It does not make a difference whether it is a condo or single house. Some sellers price the home too high and some may price it at fair market value and some may list at less than FMV in which case they may get multiple offers and above asking price at times. A good agent in your area can do the comps and guide you. ... more

Hi Ann,

Great question and a problem for everyone. Many public web sites and mobile app's are not updated as frequent as the MLS sites that agents use. Entered Dates need to be viewable to listings, articles and postings. Maybe an expiration date is also needed like we have for food products.

Click on www.chriskotowicz.com to create your own personal web search and chose instant updates to get changes as they occur.

also see http://realtor.com/bio/chriskoto for Listing Book and or call me or send your email and I'll set you up with everything including an app for your phone and mobile tablet that gets you aacurate information.

Good luck and happy shopping.

Dear Manitoudental,

The building you are inquiring about is the Seamark and you are correct it was built more recently than other buildings in the North Palm Beach area. It was constructed in 2003 and is a very stable building with very few units that hit the market. The building is in a wonderful location just south of PGA Boulevard and owners have easy access to all the area has to offer. Units will feature impact glass higher ceilings, granite counterops, walk in closets, bathrooms with Roman tubs and washer and dryers in the unit. The community has only 39 units and features a wonderful private pool and tennis courts and also was equipped with an emergency generator.

Over the past year we have had three sales in the building; all were two bedroom units but of varying sizes and sold prices range from $195,000 to $218,000. It is interesting to note that all three were short sales which tells you that the people who live there are very happy unless they have financial circumstances that did not allow them to hang on.

As of this morning we have only one listing and it too is a short sale listed at $199,900 so if you would like to take a private tour of the unit and building please feel free to contact me at your convenience. It is priced very well as it is a larger 2 bedroom floor plan with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and 2,006 livable square feet. It is a first floor unit so does not enjoy as great of views as others in the building. The current owner purchased the home back in 2005 for $333,000.

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,

Lisette, 



As I said in my original response, something does not add up! First, why isn't the agent representing you raising hell? Why isn't your agent speaking with the broker in charge of the listing?



I am also wondering how your original question, posted on March 6th at 5:16 PM, states that on THAT day you went to the house but couldn't get in even after you called the listing agent three times. Now you post that you signed a contract on March 5th the day BEFORE your original post on March 6th. 



Like I said, something does not add up. If you are truly looking for a professional to properly represent you please feel free to give me call at your convenience. I am easily reached at 561 308-0175 or via e-mail at tom@tompriester.com and would be very happy to see if we can help you reach your ultimate goal.

Ton Ali answered:
I have the same issue with a client currently and you really have to ask your self if the house is really what you want. I'm not here defending banks, but they are short staffed when it comes to short sales and backing out just because you think their taking too long could cost you a great deal on a great house. Have you tried having your agent call the seller's agent to get an update on the progress? You might be closer to an answer than you think. ... more

Ton Ali answered:
It is really up to the bank. Some banks don't want to deal with anything like that; some will offer to pay some closing costs if you finance with them. As a short sale you only need bank approval of the deal for it to close, they're not the seller; it may be more difficult. ... more

Where are you finding interest rates that aren't around 5%? Even FHA is at 5% right now. Do you have bad credit?

If you don't have $5000, you can't afford a $220k house. Set up a budget that allows you to save money, then come back to buying when you have savings in place. By that time, home prices will have decreased even more, so your $220k will go even further than it does now. ... more
