The no down payment part is going to be a hard hurdle to get over. I know of a one bedroom condo that might meet your needs but you would have to have a down payment. Call me if you want more detail.

I just dealt with a Foreclosed property. The bank was asking 125K and we got my client in on the house for 90K. Make sure you get an agent who has a great relationship with the banks. Feel free to contact for more information if you are not working with an agent already. Good Luck on your search

This is a difficult question, because the closer to the ocean the higher the insurance. If you are asking about the mainland I would say maybe around $1500 but that is a guess because it would depend on many different factors. ... more

Hello, please feel free to give me a call. I have done short sales for the past 5 years & just got a homeowner a $3000.00 re-location package & sold her home. It usually takes approximately 18 mths before the lender gets to an actual foreclosure. I would not suggest paying a lawyer when as a real estate agent I will work for you & your lender will pay me. This is an awkward situation & I can help!

You better find a place to live right away, the writ gives you 24 hours to move out. If you do not do it voluntary, the sheriff's crew will move you out even if someone is sick, pregnant or if you have another good reason why you should not move out of the property.

Best of Luck,

Heather Crivello answered:
Sites like Realty Trac are very misleading. If these home we available for sale, they would be listed by a real estate agent and in the MLS. These homes may still be in a foreclosure process, and not legally able to be put up for sale yet.

To get the most accurate and up to date information on homes that are on the market right now, search on my website-the listings come straight from the Brevard MLS where we input all listings as agents.

Good luck on the home search!

Paul Whitehouse answered:
Steve......Hi and Merry Christmas.The Short Sale home recently withdrawn (12/18) is 2658 Lowell Cir. which has been on the market for nearly a year and USED to be a very fine home with quality professional interior design and landscaping. However because the home is in need of complete refurbishment of the second floor and all round general neglect you may feel the last listed price of $329,000 a little high. IF you could purchase this home at the right price and had the money for the remodeling then you would finish up with a fantastic family home. If you have further questions please email me.(I have previously viewed this home).
Best Wishes

Paul Whitehouse.

First make sure you have some patience... Then get pre-approved for a mortgage, you will need this before you can make any offers. You should find a buyer broker who specializes in bank owned homes to assist you. The basic rules are be pre-approved, do you inspections prior to putting in an offer because the sale will be as is, base your offer on the inspection and.or any needed repairs. Make sure you dont ask the bank to fix anything, dont include any contingincies, make sure your deposit is in teh form of a bank check and at least 1% of teh sales price, be prepared to close within 30 days. Ask if the foreclosure deed has been recorded or at least completed, this could cause a delay in closing. i have more tips on my website if you want to tak ethe time. Good luck with your purchase dez. ... more

Client Testimoials

Mark is a genuine friend! He remembered our anniversary and invites Dave to go surfing and play poker! He helped us narrow down our selection based on exactly what we were looking for and wasn't pushing us to a specific house or area. He worked really well with the other Realtor and we were both very impressed at how friendly he was with everyone we came in contact with during the whole process! We got our dream house and we have Mark to thank for that! We will absolutely go to Mark for any other real estate needs that we have! We absolutely recommend him to any family and friends that need to buy or sell!

Hei, hei og takk for sist! Da vil vi få lov å takke for alt du har gjort for oss Mark. Du har sannelig brukt mye av din tid på oss, noe vi setter stor pris på. Nå gleder vi oss bare til å komme tilbake til Florida og ta i bruk vår nye leilighet. Det var veldig betryggende for oss å kunne ha en kontakt som bor i nærheten og som kjenner til systemet i USA når det gjelder investering i bolig etc. Vi satte også stor pris på at du tok oss med og viste oss parker og nærmiljøet slik at vi lettere kan se hva vi går til. Håper vi også kan få ta kontakt med deg når vi kommer neste gang. Ønsker deg en god tur til Norge og riktig god sommer!!
-Grethe og Bernt, Stavanger, Norway. Mai 2008

Etter mye surfing på internett og flere kontakter med andre eiendomsmeglere, fikk vi kontakt med Mark og her fikk vi en stor positiv overraskelse. Mark engasjerte med engang og fulgte oss opp hele veien. Han var oppriktig interessert i oss og vår behov. Etter mange e-mail, telefoner, med hurtige svar på alle våre spørsmål, fikk oss til Floridas Space Coast og ble bare overbevist om at her skulle vi kjøpe. Etter 2 dager på visning fant vi vårt drømmehus, takket være Mark. Han hørte hele tiden på oss, jobbede med oss som vi var de eneste i denne verden der skulle kjøpe bolig. Etter vi fant vårt hus, stod han der stadig med utstrakt hånd og hjalp oss gjennom alt det praktiske. For en person du er Mark, pålidelig, engasjerende, en fantastisk megler, som alle vil få stor glede av. Vi kan på det varmeste anbefale Mark til alle de som ønsker seg bolig på Floridas Space Coast og andre steder i Florida. Takk Mark !

Mark, you truly are the Somerset Oceanfront Specialist. I really appreciate the way you have worked with me as an owner of two units. I know listing with you is the right choice as you are well connected both in the local community and to the international buyers. Each time I talk to you, it seems you have my best interest in mind. Thank you!” S. Veal, MD 03/22/08

I met Mark Palace at the Curves Vibrant Womens Conference and decided to have Palace Properties help me find a place to rent or buy. He had a place within an hour and I could see it that evening after work. Mark works hard for his clients and always kept in contact with me by e-mails and phone calls when I needed to talk to him. Never had to wait long for a call back. He is very professional, courteous and respectful. There are some realtors out there that should take lessons from Mark Palace, Palace Properties.
