Stay far away from Positano Place, the management is corrupt, HOA fees are rising yet services are cut. Trash compacted replaced with a open dumpster garbage is all over & rats are now present. The head of security is also a board member who is vile vindictive and frequently causes renters to be evicted based on her made up false allegations. The manager Jack is a putz and simply takes her word instead of researching the allegations. Your personal information in the managers (Jack) is NOT protected and he frequently gives this board member access to all residents files.
HOA fees are going up yet they are penny pinching in all aspects.
Also there are over a dozen hidden cameras throughout the property and your privacy is compromised. The psycho board member impersonates being a Collier County sheriff's officer when in fact she is a civilian employee. Watch your back if you dare look at her wrong because she can & will make your life miserable. A radar gun is used on the property to illegally fine residents for supposedly going over the 10mph speed limit. I could go on but the list of "wrongs" that go on here is very lengthy.
There are much nicer larger units reasonably priced at several other developments in Naples. Please do the research and cross Positano OFF your list.... more
They are asking you (the sellers) if you're willing to push the closing back 10 days. You have the right to respond "no".
But it might be worth a conversation as to the "why" they're asking for the extension. It's possible that their lender isn't prepared to close earlier, and if that's the case... you might be stuck with an extension, or cancellation of the contract.
Depending on your circumstances, you could also find out if it was possible to close 5 days later, instead of 10 days. Everything is a negotiation.

My realtor was Annie Clougherty in Newport Beach/Corona de Mar. Annie LISTENS. She shows properties that you express interest in. She does not waste your time looking at properties you have no interest in seeing. She remains dedicated and involved after the contract is signed, all the way to closing. She is willing to assist with the execution of tasks, and bids, and estimates to help you secure the home of your dreams. She has solid knowledge of the neighborhoods, the comps, and presently excellent options. She works tirelessly. She is always available. I have never know a more service oriented broker.

If you want to engage in a long term headache, go ahead and buy a DiVosta/Pulte home. Trust me, I bought pre-construction in 2006, Village Walk in Lake Nona, Orlando. Our first roof leak happened in 2013, where inspection determined that flashing was improperly installed, allowing water to seep into walls in two bedrooms over a long period of time. It went unnoticed until a 3-day downpour, when I discovered the paint BUBBLING on my child's bedroom wall. The response from Pulte? Sorry you
are out of your ONE YEAR roof warranty. The last time I checked, shoddy construction isn't part of a warranty. It is yet unclear how the roof passed inspection at the time. Our insurance would not cover the roof repair since it was a BUILDER'S DEFECT, even though the spineless, shady cowards from Pulte/DiVosta would never own up to it and only cited their sh*tty roof "warranty." Now, it is 2016, and we have a second leak in a different part of the roof altogether, because the screws used to secure the Spanish tiles to the roof were not properly fitted to the tile and had been loose.
Our home was built during the boom prior to the housing burst. Homes were springing up like mushrooms. DiVosta marketed itself as "Built Tough," but from experience I can tell you that is not at all true. Structurally, there are several short cuts that have been discovered that have resulted in great expense to us, and ZERO -- I MEAN ZERO -- care or customer service from Pulte. When we purchased our home, "Pulte" wasn't touted as the builder - it was DiVosta. Had I known Pulte was merely hiding behind the good reputation of DiVosta, I never would have considered buying a home associated with them.
It's not just our home. Google Village Walk/DiVosta/Pulte roof leaks, and you will find it has happened in SW Florida as well. To cut costs, the builder used a flimsy underlayment on the roof, another issue discovered upon inspection from the first time we had a leak. For this climate and under Spanish tile, it should have been a heavier weight underlayment.
This company only wants the *appearance* of quality & exclusivity. The interiors include corner-cutting as well - i.e., cheaply laminated cabinets that warped within one year, and the company wouldn't replace (same thing occurred in SW FL homes they built, yet, they built the homes in Orlando anyway using the same, crappy cabinet materials). ALSO - the baseboards throughout the homes are nothing but COMPRESSED PAPER. Yep, hard to believe, but that is all they are. This I learned when the water had permeated the walls and baseboards.
My BARBIE house was better constructed than this home I currently live in and can't wait to vacate. And we bought on the legacy street -- after several homes were built, they started using cheaper materials in the subsequent phases.
Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY from anything even remotely associated with Pulte.... more
The majority of your closing costs will be loan related, and typically based on purchase price. You should ask your lender for a good faith estimate of what your closing costs will be. But they can only assume so much. A lot depends on the property you buy, the type of loan you're getting, how much property taxes are, insurance, etc. Talk to a lender and a Realtor and they should give you a good idea of how much to expect.... more
