It really depends upon the complexity of the situation. Some have been as short as 60 days. However, I had a closing a couple of months ago that took over a year to achieve.

Hi Natasha,

I worked for another brokerage before I switched to Blue Water and I couldn't be happier. Aaron is a great guy and very knowledgeable about our profession and is always willing to answer questions or mentor an agent on how to further their business. (Plus, being on 100% commission is great but he does have other options available.)

If you would like me to arrange a tour or have any questions feel free to reach out to me.

Barb, there are several ways to handle this. First I must congratulate you on being conscientious enough to have the house in order when it was left a mess. If the house was tenant occupied, what happened to the security deposit? There should have been a claim on the deposit. If the house was a second home then have the sellers pay to have it cleaned if they are not going to do it themselves. You know the condition of the house when you listed it so have a clearing company come and give you an estimate at the beginning of the listing. Have the seller send you a check so this is handled before a contract and before a closing. If the seller is doing a short sale they may not care so the buyer should realize this especially if they are getting a good deal. Everything is negotiable and you will be the key in this. I am surprised your broker has not helped you in this matter. If you like to come and speak with me I would be please to have an agent as conscientious you work for me. ... more

I googled it, and might be great idea for an evening exterior photo with interior lights on when shooting at infinity distance where a flash wont work. A kitchen though? Nah

I was confronted by an REO agent in my office this AM, so I need to clarify my prior remarks. There are still some good REO brokers out there -- I just have a difficult time finding one around here. How can an agent out of Orlando list and sell foreclosures here in SWFL? They never visit the house, no pictures available, know nothing about the house, have no information -- everything in the MLS is "other/see remarks" -- this is what I am talking about.
Thank you.

The credit card should be an unsecured debt...unless the CC company filed suit and was awarded a judgement. Then I believe it would be able to become a lien on the subject home.
As already mentioned...these liens can usually be negotiated down to pennies on the dollar due to the sellers obvious financial dilemma. If they don't accept a small settlement they will eventually loose all of the claim once the house goes into foreclosure and is sold by the bank. ... more

Give my partner, Neil Masse (239) 699-0859, a call. He has a house on NE 1st Ave, very nice 3/2/2 plus den that our investor wants to sell. We have been renting it for him the last few years. VERY nice home and it will be vacant within the next week or so.

Realtors aren't being singled out; rather, they're being included along with everyone else involved in short-sales.

I have been told by a few agents that they are having issues with Fannie Mae asset Mgrs. I know that I have had an issue a few times, waiting a couple weeks for addendums to come back, but in these cases I knew the list agent very well and I was not worried at all, it was just a poor system thing.. We are waiting now for an addendum to come back signed and its been 2 weeks... I guess you could call it a thing of the times.. Just remember to add this to chapter 17 in the book we write about how we all survived and prospered in what some called the worst market to ever be...

And the $10,000 above list price is not uncommon at all, I have seen bunches go for upwards of $20K above list.

Deborah Madey answered:
Hi Joseph,

I am not an exclusive buyer agent, but rather a broker who fully supports buyer agency. We have dual agency in NJ, and it's not allowed in FL, as you well know. I am not a big fan of dual agency, but do know of isolated instances when it has worked well. That is the exception, and I am a strong supporter of buyer agency.

How long have you been an exclusive buyer agent, and what benefits and drawbacks are there for both the agent and the client when working with an exclusive buyer agent?

Curious to learn more.
