The loan type will help determine what is the requirements for a new build home. If you are purchasing using a conventional loan the minimum loan requirement would be 3-5% down if the builder is using their funds to build the home. If you are looking at FHA loan then the requirement is 3.5% down payment. I would be delighted to provide you with some mortgage options, this does not require us pulling your credit and will allow you to make the best decision for your family.

You may be able to do a short sale. To avoid owing a balance, have a real estate attorney represent you in the short sale process with the lender, many FL real estate attorneys are versed in short sales. Then list your home with a real estate agent who is experienced with short sale listings. Between the attorney and the real estate agent, you should be fine. ... more

Diane Christner answered:
Your listing is with the broker of the real estate company, not the listing agent. So when your agent moves to her new company, your listing would stay with the old real estate company. You can ask that broker to release you, but I suggest reading your listing agreement carefully first, see what terms are involved with a cancellation.

Sometimes brokers are cooperative in letting listings go with the listing agent when the agent moves on (for a referral fee or percentage, of course), others can be real sticklers about the listing staying with the original brokerage.

Your agent technically cannot and should not be encouraging you to move with her, that would be a violation of most local real estate board rules regarding listings.

Talk to the broker and see what you can work out.

Any Realtor, who doesn't list HOA fees because they will scare buyers, is telling a lie of omission. Full disclosure is the best and most honest practice.

Yes, Naples is very family friendly for the most part. Like any city, there are some areas more desirable than others, and no, despite any articles to the idea, the streets are NOT paved in gold.
However, they are very clean in comparison to some other area cities. Punta Gorda gulf area might be comparable to in cleanliness. Some areas are prone to some crime, such as theft and vandalism, but you do not hear about it often, and when you do... it's big local news. Areas like Marco Island, Ava Maria, Port Richey... hardly any real crime. That you hear of locally, anyways. There is big money and subsequently, big lawyers/ law firms.
So. NOT. New York City.
More like Manhattan, eh Upper New York State. Parts of New Jersey, minus shore smell. Elizabethtown comes to mind.

Much more friendly than some parts of Fort Myers, which is our next closest big city. Although I have found that some residents in Lee county area (Bonita Springs, Estero, San Carlos) can be equally, if not MORE friendly, there are many areas of Naples that still have that down-home, slightly country feel that makes you welcome to walk in and hang about for a while.

The Naples area boasts many elementary, middle and high schools to choose from; my best suggestion is to contact the schools personally and vet them as if your student already attends the school. Skip all the fluff, get to the real facts.

Some things to keep in mind: If you are looking for a very active city, with lots of family-friendly activities, and tons to do every weekend - I would be looking in a different area. Unless you LOVE (and I do mean - LOVE A LOT) many watersports, as it boasts an ENDLESS variety; Fishing, skiing, scuba diving, boating, fishing, jet skiing, swimming, and did I mention?
It does have some annual and holiday/festive activities, mind you; however, I would judge the level of activity based on your preferences and level of busyness you currently enjoy. The is a zoo, a kid's museum, a lovely park in downtown area, some fantastic beaches (once you live here, you may not visit as often, AKA= THE HEAT INDEX) , a waterpark (open most of year-not all) and BUNCHES AND BUNCHES of shopping areas. The central mall is Coastland Center, and next is closest is only about 20-30 minutes North, out of Naples, depending on traffic.
The most active and newest shopping center out of the bunch is Mercato, which is centrally located off of Highway US 41, AKA Tamiami Trail North, AKA 9th St North in Naples (yes, it goes by several names, this road.)

Well, anyways, hope this helps a bit in your search. It really is a quiet, nice place to rest your head and know the kiddos are all right. ~ Courtesy of

~ Sincerely,

Caro, personally
