Very long and complicated back story but the short of this question is:
If financing contingencies are not met (the buyer had 45 days to obtain financing and that started back in Oct. 2015)…

Tammy Hayes answered:
You probably won't. Most seller financing requires 20 to 30% down. They want to protect their investment. Also, seller financing is very hard to find these days with the interest rates being so low. Discuss options with a local lender. If they can't help you, then you most likely will need to rent. ... more

Arcadia has properties to market within your price range from from time to time. Sometimes they are mobile homes, though. Are you interested in a mobile home?

If you are in fact looking to purchase in the near future, why not simply work with an agent of your own....

If you have talked with banks and mortgage lenders and they have told you that you need Seller Financing, you could have received wrong info. as Banks and other Mortgage Lenders are generally very limited of what they can offer.

Hi Roger,

There is a condo at 149 Ventnor J in Deerfield Beach. That condo has a contract pending. If you are interested in other listings in Century Village in Deerfield Beach or the surrounding areas, please let me know. Keep in mind that Century Village is a 55+ community. There are a lot of good deals to be found in this community.

In order to qualify for the homestead exemption you must use that residence as your primary residence which typically means you spend a least 6 months and 1 day there in any calendar year. The effect this will have on your property taxes will vary depending on the value of the property. The homestead exemption in Florida is $50,000 so if your property is valued for property tax purposes at $100,000 your taxes if homesteaded would be about 50% when compared to what they would be in you did not homestead the property.

If your property is valued at $250,000 the percentage of property tax increase would be much smaller. Remember also that in Florida the assessed valuation of a homesteaded property cannot be raised more than 3% a year and this is not true of a non-homesteaded property so this can also have a huge impact on future tax bills once we start seeing some meaningful appreciation which is still probably at least 2 to 3 years down the road in most areas of Florida.

Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please feel free to contact me at your convenience..

Always at Your Service,

Hey David,

Call your lender immediately to be sure your agent has submitted a contract at the price you signed. It may be possible your Realtor is trying to do a same-day flip and not showing the bank your contract but a lower priced contract! One way to be certain what is going on is to contact your lender directly.

If it turns out your lender has a falsified contract that you didn't sign then call the FBI immediately and have the Realtor prosecuted!

From what I heard today the FBI has added about 200 extra agents in Florida to do sting operations on Realtors/Investors/Owners committing short sale fraud.

Hope this helps you. Hopefully your Realtor is acting in your best interest and not their investor or themselves! Unfortunately I see shady deals every day in Short Sales in Tampa Bay--especially by certain listing Reators and well known Real Estate firms. Why their brokers allow these agents to get involved in these suspect deals seems like pure stupidity to me...

There is no set time limit to close. Since this was left out of the contract you could have an addendum written and signed by buyer and seller to correct this. There should always be an on or B-4 close date. ... more
