The community has 516 homes, at any time there are homes for sale. They are selling well now, with only a few available now. The community POA is in very sound financial position. There is an active Entertainment Committee sponsoring about 15 well attended events per year. In 2017, there has been extensive landscape improvements, sidewalk leveling and renewal, and canopy and root work to improve our canopy of Live Oak trees. Landscaping looks great, and the preserves are maintained well. Our Neighborhood Watch Committee has been praised by the St. Lucie County Sheriff's office.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
If you receive a permanent fixed salary and W2 to file income taxes, then all lenders need is 1 month of pay stubs before you close on a home. You can get pre approved by a lender with just a letter from your employer verifying your status, start date and type of income.

If you work as an independent contractor, are self employed, work part time or receive hourly wages (especially for shift work), receive a 1099, lenders will need 2 years employment to qualify for a loan.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area.

Scott Godzyk answered:
It depends, if they are getting a mortgage, the bank will mandate the home appraises. If it is a cash sale, most cash buyers assess what the home is worth before making an offer. It should say on your contract if the sale is contingent upon an appraisal. Check with your listing agent ... more

If he is an agent under that brokerage, he should be advertising the brokerage per state law. You can call the managing broker or the MA real estate commission

Jonathan Klurfeld, Esq. answered:
It's all negotiable. And as seller chooses title agent in St Lucie the title company would be able to give you a closing cost estimate; or some websites have very rough estimators.

If your agent doesnt know this stuff then I would seriously question their competence and ability to write a contract for you selling your biggest asset to protect your interests. You need to get yourself a real estate attorney as well before this agent costs you big money.

Cctoddins answered:
I had a buyer wanting to back out of our contract stating there were too many issues found in the inspection.although the house had a leak that sprung while I was gone. I had the roofers come and they said its all a quick fix. Several of the findings were eronious I could only surmise due to the inspectors total incompetence or lack of knowledge.
I fixed all the issues that were asked and were in the process of getting the.roofer to inspect if and or.qhat was damaged on my roof. All this plus more was scheduled and or already done or ready to roll or by the following Monday..we got a call Monday afternoon that he wantwd out.
This is 7 days before cloaing.
We signed the papers for purchase on 12/17/2016. My hpuse has been off the market all this time and I left my home in NY to.come and vacate my home before thw closing.
I dont want ro release the escrow money because I feel he owes me for all the time and money I have spent to.get to.thiss point this far.

Susie Kay answered:
I have to agree with the below, and I think your agreement with him is verbal so it's hard to say anything unless you can contact the previous owner to verify. If you are not happy with him, you can always work with another lawn company but I would suggest that you make sure that you ask what's covered and how much.

I hope this makes sense!
