P, Other/Just Looking in Palm Bay, FL
Tue May 19, 2009
P answered:
Fredrick, The county offices have lists as long as the state for taxes certificates for unpaid taxes and even liens. Also city's like Palm Bay that make it a habit of fining people up to more than the homes are worth in there misguided wisdom. Thet fine for mold on the side of the house, if the soffits are not repaired and even if you have a rusty shed that can be seen from the road. They don't even care of the man that owns the house is dying, in a home, or has been dead for 3 or more years. They just keep fining and making better excuses for them.

If you go to the Brevard County website you will be able to find tax certificates and so on available., to purchase. Now as for title information you also can fine this information from the County by gooing tot he Clerk of the Courts and Taxing site. We use the County Porperty Appraisers site to see the owners and addresses currently on file. But they may not be up to date either. Good Luck. If you need additional help give me a shout.

The offer received was not accepted by the seller. If is important that a buyer understands that short sales are a good deal and to further discount the price is not the best idea in the world unless the buyer knows for sure tha the lender will accept his offer. Lenders will side with the realtor's price 99% of the time. A short sale agent must show a lot of background paperwork to justify the list price. If you are interested you need to make a move now. We have had 14 showings since December 23rd and many have positive feedbacks. I am Josephine Carpenter, Realtor 321 243 4519 ... more

Mott Marvin…, Real Estate Pro in Sunny Isles Beach, FL
Fri Aug 15, 2008
Mott Marvin Kornicki answered:
Yes, you do have the right to know what the selling price was. Usually, the final price is confidential- when it closes the sales price will be recorded in the county court.

If you are bidding on short-sales, the asking price usually has not been approved by the lender- the lender waits for offers to come in and only then do they determine what offer to accept based on certain criteria.

Perhaps the terms were better on the other offers. Price is just one element of the transaction.

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.

We contacted Mark on a Friday, saw houses on a Sunday, and had a new address on Monday. Mark is very dedicated to continuously searching for appropriate properties, while keeping us updated with each new finding. His efforts significantly helped us with a stressful search for a new home.

William Alex…, Home Buyer in Ballymena, N. Ireland
Wed Apr 9, 2008
William Alexander answered:
I would recommend the agency we dealt with in Melbourne. Realtors are friendly, courteous and professional. I believe they are the no 1 agency in Brevard for buyer sales, most of the agents working exclusively for buyers. We live in Ireland and they helped us source a home in Viera (highly recommended area with super schools and shops). Mitch Ribak the owner is excellent source of information and you can read all his blogs on the website. Lew Veltri was our realtor and we have nothing but praise for his efforts on our behalf. ... more

Tman,  in 30642
Mon Jan 14, 2008
Tman answered:
That area grew fast and so did the prices ....

But if you take a real long and strong look, most of the prices have (or will) fallen somewhere in and around the 20% area ... when you see the beach area's falling like Indian Harbor in price, you can certainly bet the other area's are coming down - and have.

Be patient and try to find a good experienced and savvy agent, shop around and ask questions .... and don't be afraid to spend some time doing searches on your computer and dissecting the areas and their prices ..

As an example only, some houses there have gone from $500,000 "asking" to $420,000 "asking" ... usually your best deal is going to fall with the seller that has the most amount of equity and has been on the market the longest.

Good luck and happy hunting.!
