Property taxes are the sole responsibility of the home owner. Are you the Landlord or the Tenant? Personally, I have never heard of such request in my 14 years in the business and I do quite a number of rentals. ... more

if less than 6 months rental then 6% is due although some counties like Miami-Dade may add a penny or 1/2 of a penny for local revenue.

It seems you are not asking the question because you may be concerned as a Landlord and therefore I will not recommend to inquire with your accountant. What are you really trying to find out? Are you "investigating" your Landlord? I admire those who have answered your question because I truly don't understand it.... ... more

I think Short-Sale is more the appropriate term????? Foreclosed homes already were re-possessed and pre-foreclsoure means that it is in the process of bank/association taking over.

Let me know what it is that you are looking for. Shoot me an email, I can assist.

Yes. The owners still have possession. It is their decision to sell or not. They don't have to show if the dont want to. Contacting the attorney is not going to help much either. Once its foreclosed on the banks assign an asset manager who who assigns the property to a competent broker who rehabs the property, markets it and hopefully sells it. That has been my experience with those difficult sellers.
Best of luck,

Properties that are in foreclosure and listed for sale are also reviewed by an appraisal shortly after it is foreclosed. Many times the Realtor that does the first review of the market value was too low, or the bank has changed the conditions of the property by fixing the damages that the house once had. There are many reasons for a property to change its value after foreclosure. I hope this helps you in understanding that there are too many variables and reason. Ask the Realtor you are working with to see if he has the answer to your particular property.

If you are not working with a Realtor and need assistance please feel free to contact me at my direct number. 786-337-0063 Ana McNatt

Good evening,

While I do agree with the advice some of the professionals have posted, I was informed after speaking with the mortgage banker on my team that if you have a FICO score of 720 or above there are financing programs available if you wish to purchase a property in South Florida as a second home allowing 10% down payment. In addition, the terms are more favorable if it will be your primary.

You may want to give us a call to discuss further...(786) 379-5626.

Luis the idea is a good one. If I was you, I would get an estimate on the value of the land and depending on the area, you will know if you need to use the equity in your homestead. Order an appraisal on the land and used that as basis. Construction is very slow and you can get good deals on the labor and materials. What you need to watch out for is that we are in a depreciating market and the lender will take that into consideration. Also you need to consider the Hurricane season is coming up. The first thing I would do is get an appraisal and sit with the lender. You also need a professional contractor and also Realtor to help you market your homestead once your dream home is finished. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you ... more
