There are a number of home valuation websites out there. I have referenced one below. To get the most accurate value of your home would require a Realtor to visit your home and perform a market analysis on it, which takes into effect current market conditions, home features and condition, and comparable properties. ... more

Fort Pierce has a wonderful downtown waterfront with boutique shops, restaurants, Saturday Farmer's Market, Sunrise Theater, festivals and much more. In fact, USA today has noted Fort Pierce as being a number one location for it's beautiful downtown area. Hutchinson Island is part of Ft. Pierce with two parts; there is South Hutchinson Island with 21 miles of unspoiled beaches from the Ft. Pierce Inlet to Stuart. North Hutchinson Island is the northern section of the Ft. Pierce Inlet with beautiful coastline into Vero Beach. Hutchinson Island has the laid back tropical feel...

Port St. Lucie is only a short drive to the beach. It is much larger than Ft. Pierce. Great city also.

$450-$600/month. and it increases slightly every year. :-( You are better off getting a manf. home that includes the land. A few places in the Sebastion do such as Bare Foot Bay. If you buy a new manf. home or a Block home in Spanish Lakes then HOA is around $440/month and it is guaranteed for life. No increases. Financing is avl. for both as well. ... more

This question isn't quite as simple as it may sound and there no address attached, so the second part can't be answered at all, which is probably why no one ever responded. in the 34982 zip code in Fort Pierce, the closest beaches are probably South Jetty Park Beach, locally known as "South Beach" or Fort Pierce Inlet State Park, locally known as "North Beach" or "Pay Beach" (because you have to pay to get in) To get to "South Beach" you have to go up to Sea Way Drive, to get to "North Beach" you have to go a little further up the road to the North Causeway. If you're into surfing, North Beach is the better of the two. You also have the option heading south to the Jensen Beach Causeway, either way there are a number of nice beaches in the area on Hutchinson Island and everybody has their own opinion about which one is the best, so you'll have to figure that out for yourself. depending on where you're at in the 34982 zip code If you go up through Fort Pierce, it should take about 15 to 30 min about 6 - 10 miles, if you go down to Jensen Beach, probably about 30 to 45 min about 15 - 20 miles ... more

You can use Google maps to type in the address of any property and then type in the address of the beach you want to go to, it will give you the distance and travel time.

There are numerous available properties in Port Saint lucie that would meet you budget. It just depends on where in Port Saint Lucie you want to be located and what you are looking for in a home. Additionally, I will be listing a home near Gatlin Blvd and Port Saint Lucie Blvd very soon and the asking price will be around $45,000. The home needs work but a good value.

If I can assist you in any other way, please feel free to contact me

Thank you,

Julie Rosenthal answered:
Your astute question points to the recovery of the local markets. Investors have cash and can close the sale quickly. Investors are snapping up bargains while prices are low and rental demand is high. Investors may have resources to repair and improve properties that need work. That is attractive to sellers especially now when they are selling at bargain prices. ..Ask your Realtor to come ready with comparable sales and a contract offer . Often now many people are bidding up above the asking price if the property is a bargain. Rely on your realtor's advice. If you can not pay cash, it may be 6 to 8 weeks to close your loan. Work with your mortgage broker to get fully pre-approved for your loan in advance. Your mortgage broker then can produce a pre-approval letter to accompany your Offer to Purchase. If necessary, bid higher than a cash buyer would, to entice the seller to wait the extra time for your loan to be processed. Your Realtor and Mortgage broker will be your greatest resources for success. .

Stephen McRory answered:

REALTOR REBATES are 100% legal in FL and 40 other states and educated buyers are obtaining this savings.

In fact, a portion of the REALTOR REBATE can even go towards the buyer's Separate Attorney Representation to oversee the entire purchase process!

There is no doubt many realtors will try and discredit this savings anyway they can as it threatens the 6 points "Extraction Of Equity" they have in place that the American consumer has been conditioned to pay and except.

It's like a Lender who is charging 6 points and offering a rate of 10% telling consurmers to avoid going with a Lender offering better service, 2 points and a 3.5% rate simply because they want to make 6 points and a 10% rate

Congratulations on your move to Tradition, a lovely community of homes with many amenities, as is all of Port St Lucie. Altho' the real estate prices are seemingly a steal to any one in New England, (I have lived in MA. RI, CT, & Hudson Valley NY), please keep in mind the salaries are relative. A teacher of public or charter schools here gets paid 2/3 rds of what you are paid in RI. There have been 100's laid off here mainly because of state & local budget cuts, no salary or step increases since 2007, & reduced benefits. Ex.: As a 25 yr secondary teacher with MA degree & continuous post degree studies, I am "frozen" at $52,000. New, St Lucie will now reduce credit for yrs u bring in by 5 yrs,, Substitute teaching is approx. $70 a day. Most openings are filled before the end of the school year. When any positions become available, there are many good available teachers already FL certified & experienced, and quickly re-employed. It would behoove you to get your FL certification now, as well as ESOL & Reading Endorsement asap. The FL Dept of Ed website has many links with specifics. Stay on top of openings in Martin, St Lucie, Palm Beach Counties (you will be in a great location to commute), by visiting their websites for job openings updated weekly. Restaurant work opportunity changes continuously,... so many good restaurants, many good chefs, many talented students graduating from culinary colleges..., but sadly effected by the economy. ... more

Hi Urbain. Edith gave you GREAT advice. It is very important to find an agent in the area you are searching who is familar and knowledgeable. I suggest you start with Friends, Family and co-workers to see if they have any recommendations for you. If not, let me know and I would be happy to refer someone to you from my nationwide network.

Best of luck to you.

Hi Longhaul,

I cannot tell you the lot rent on 14 Lagos del Norte, as it is not our property, however, if you call Shannon, (772)466-1553, in the Spanish Lakes Country Club Village (SLCCV) business office, she will be happy to assist you.

Generically, lot rents in SLCCV range from approximately $470 to $530, depending upon home size, location (waterfront, golf course, etc.). Many original renters have locked-in lifetime rent at around $140, but that is not transferable to a new buyer.

Coincidentally, we have two properties on the same street currently available. One we own outright, and one is listed with us. I'll not go into detail here, but we have others in SLCCV, which is our specialty, and since we live here, please ask any questions you might have. Best regards, Roland693

Deluxe Realty answered:
Hello Bo,

Basically... it's selling your home for less than what you owe on the mortgage, so you sell with the lender's approval, in which they take a loss in the difference (and their insured for a portion). They have ratios and other criterias that must meet certain levels for approval.

The person doing the short sale will save their credit and history by preventing foreclosure.

Here's a thorough wikipedia page about short sales:
