If it's your house and not your wife's, you can do whatever you want! But...it still might be good to contact an attorney just in case. In your state, she may have a right to have of whatever you own. ... more

There are a number of factors to take into consideration, such as current sq ft living space of your home, the typical homes for sale in your neighborhood (how many have garage conversions), parking situation if you take away garage space, etc.

Whatever you decide, keep in mind that garage conversions require permits. Converting a garage to living space without the required permits could lead to problems later on when you sell your home. Lack of required permits will lead appraisers to discount the new sq ft living space. Buyers will also run into problems obtaining insurance. Even if you do pull all required permits for your conversion, many buyers actually want a garage, so they will skip your listing when searching for homes.

Would suggest weighing the pros and cons before making a final decision on garage conversions. Bigger is not always better.

Hello,

Your best bet for detailed questions like this is to contact either the listing agent or ask a local Realtor in the area.

Call your friendly neighborhood Realtor and they'd be happy to list it! (You cannot post homes for sale by owner, if that's what you're really asking).

Michael Joseph answered:
My last agent asked if me I was going to give him an escrow check when we made an offer on a home. I told him I wasn't going to provide him with a check prior to acceptance. I'm not sure why he asked for it but there was no way I was writing a check prior to acceptance of the offer. Being that your offer wasn't accepted you should get it back immediately. If an offer is accepted and the home doesn't close the closing agent would need the seller to sign for the release of escrow. Since it was never accepted you, your agent or the broker should be able to get it back now and I would demand it's return now and find a new agent. ... more

Dear Kayet

I understand your frustration over this and feel for you.

Shortsales can be tough and fall through all the time.

I would recommend to hire a Buyers Realtor and find a new home! Sometimes it's not ment to be and maybe this one wasn't the perfect home for you and there is a better deal and/or better home for you out there.

There are lots of great homes in Lake Worth right now.

I would be happy to help you find your new dream home!

Nadine Mauro answered:
Hi Gilberto,

Are you planning to buy a house, townhouse or condo?

With any property that is governed by a homeowners or condo association you will have to fill out an application for the community. This will sometimes involve an in person interview with the property manager or someone from the board of directors of the association. As the other agents have said, it could be as little as 7 to 10 days, or as long as a couple months.

Do you need help finding something to buy, or do you already have something selected?

If I can be of further service please contact me directly.

Annette Lawrence answered:
One approach would be to poison the environment and create a climate so toxic even the little black worms can't survive. History has taught us that is not the right approach. University of Florida has been on the forefront of teaching Floridians to co-exist with the environment as evidenced by the mountainous ant mounds on the main campus grounds.

Remove, not poison, from the area what is attracting or providing the habitat for these worms. Then, get out the chalking gun and seal the areas around the base and entry points where they are finding entry into your enclosed patio. 100 percent of every inch of the base needs to be sealed, annually. Reduce the use of exotic foliage and stay to drought resistant, native plants. 99% of celebrating the Florida life style is coming to terms with the need to acclimate to the climate and environment. Those whose intent is to change or avoid what is Florida seldom leave the state with fond memories. They only see, humidly, sand, ants, sea fog and crawling things.

Have you encountered the little green ones that parachute from the trees in April?
You may find the county or city arborist a good resource in identifying the prime cause and best remedy.

You can't determine what to offer like that!

You are not buying a used car here.

Do yourself a favor and get with a realtor

An offer has been accepted already. It will remain "under contract" until it closes. Closing can be one or several months.
