62* seems pretty excessive for Florida. That's just going to be expensive. You should set a standard for the summer. Probably 70* or 72* at a minimum. That should keep your electric bills a little more even across the board. ... more

It's funny you say that you like this. Most of the realtors with us are extremely unhappy with the functionality of Flex. Hopefully in the future there will be a lot of fixes to improve upon this.

@Robert. Maybe it's time to change residential listing agreements to read more like those for Commercial Listings, Business for Sale Listings. Completely harmless to the process, but allows hard working agents to be paid for their hours of work if a client suddenly changes their mind.

Inserting language like the above would help us avoid liens, reputations, lawsuits, collections, such as you're referring to.....this is a business transaction and our lives would change for the better if we updated the agreement. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

I would recommend either going to Deerfield on the beach or to FAU. Both of these places do a phenomenal presentation year after year.

Joseph Santini,

Your best bet is whenever you think you are ready to buy a home. The market in South Florida is really crazy right now with homes being listed and going under contract on the same day. So when you think you are ready to make your next move just make sure you are agressive in the home buying process as to not lose out on the home of your dreams.

Good Luck,

Hi Nadezda,

You are definitely it the right place, being unique to the traditional job search engines.
Are you licensed and or looking to become licensed. We are looking to have some one join our team that can work outside her boundaries so it would be a better fit if you were licensed. In any case I would like to speak with you further. Please contact me at to discuss.

Have a great day!

$14,000 difference can make a buyer interested in the property who may not be interested before, so i would have listed it for $310,00 and state in the brokers remarks that the bank had approved $310,000 so the buyers and agents would know wha tthey are dealing with. A side note when you have a new offer depending on the bank they will most likely do another BPO or appraisal and you may end up with another price. i would work with the bank and see how to make this happen as you ar close between the two agents the bank the buyer and the seller you can try to close the gap and make it happen do not give up ... more

Alan May answered:
In Illinois, out contracts include the appliances as they exist. So, yes, it would "techincally" be breach of contract if the appliances were removed or exchanged.

Now, does that mean the deal is dead? Not necessarily, but the seller has jeopardized the deal, because he is in breach. He's given the buyer an opening, if the buyer wants to walk away. ... more

FREE BPOS...haha let me tell you, 99% are SCAMS. Unless it's PAS (Wells Fargo) or another major institution, I'd never do a FREE BPO that puts my name license at stake. YOU WILL NOT GET LISTINGS. It's usually a lie, but agents get sucked right in. Walk with caution. ... more
