Laurie,

If the buyer wants to waive an earned commission payable on a transaction for themselves that should clearly be spelled out in the Additional Terms section of the contract. You will also want to have acknowledgement in writing from the broker in charge of the office the buyer/agent works out of.

Hope this helps......

If you want a "Jewish neighborhood" (since you mention it) then the Boca Raton is probably right up your alley. It is probably the largest Jewish community in the area being mainly New Yorkers. If you specifically want something that far north, north of West Palm Beach, there are certainly nice areas up that way.

There will be decisions like are you ok with an HOA, or want no HOA. Golf/club membership or not. And of course good schools.

If you need some assistance looking in our area feel free to give us a call at 561-771-4457 or info@hkrealtyfl.com and we can go over what you are looking for and send you some options.

Remember as buyer it costs you nothing to have an agent as seller pays all commissions so do not go into this without a local agent.

Sindgirl,

Absolutely not. Your best bet is speaking with a qualified mortgage professional to review your current situation and loans that will work for you. We have some great relationships in the mortgage business here in the Palm Beach Gardens area so if we can be of assistance in making a recommendation please feel free to contact us.

Hi Jblee,

There is a lot to choose from with regards to resort communities, many do not have mandatory golf equity.

Feel free to check out my website. There is a lot of information on these types of communities.
Look at the tabs on the left for golf and country club
Trulia will not allow me to place the direct link.

Good Luck

Dear Tjodaninc,

Buyers in today's market have to have a game plan in place, especially for single family homes listed under $400,000. Well priced listings in this price range will sell in days, if not hours, and if a buyer is not properly positioned to react lightning fast someone else will. A new home hit the market about 5:00 last night that one of my clients has been properly positioned to react to and I am meeting them there at 8:00 this morning as that is when the lock box is being installed. If the home looks to be the opportunity it does on paper they will have a properly presented offer complete with a pre-approval letter from a direct letter before 9:00. Anyone waiting to find this hot new listing on the internet will be too late.

That home happens to have a very limited HOA and in Evergrene with the higher fees and some homes close to the railroad you usually have a little more time to react, but not always. As of this moment there are 10 single family homes available in the community and believe it or not only one of them is a short sale. The new listings on Nature Court and Mill Creek Drive look interesting and if you want to send me your e-mail address I would be happy to notify you immediately of anything new that meets your individual needs. Be very careful as much of the inventory is either over-priced or has condition or location issues and you need to be fully informed of the metrics surrounding each parcel you may be interested in.

The best thing you can do is locate a qualified Realtor who can assist you in clearly defining your goals, paying close attention to not only location but budget and condition you are willing to accept. In this market you have to be ready to act quickly when the right opportunities present themselves. I would enjoy the opportunity to be on the list of Realtors® you interview be very happy to work with you towards meeting your goals.

Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please let me know.



Always at Your Service,

Tom Priester answered:
Beth,

The rental market is very strong locally and if you have not yet found anything please feel free to contact me. Moving in quickly is typically only possible in a single family home unencumbered by an association. Others will almost always have an approval process that can take up to two weeks and sometimes longer.

The facts of the eviction will be important as most new landlords are going to want an explanation. You will most certainly need first and last months rent and a damage deposit.


Best of luck......

Bastiaan,

Online sources pull information from a multitude of locations. The listing of 11 Laguna Court at $599,000 is from when the house last sold in February. Your current listing of the property shows up as well at the $665,000 list price.

Hope this helps....

Hi No,
Since you have access to the internet if you go to Mapquest and type in your address it will show you locations of anything you are looking for. Its a great tool when you are not familiar with an area.

Audrey,

There are all sorts of great education opportunities in the Palm Beach Gardens/Jupiter area. The public schools are some of the highest rated in Palm Beach County, there are world class private schools and also a great mix of magnet and charters schools and programs.

Bright Futures Academy is a charter school located in central Jupiter, Franklin Academy is a charter school in Palm Beach Gardens very close to Myrtlewood Circle. There are magnet programs in many of the local schools so it all depends on what programs you are seeking for your children.

If you need assistance finding the perfect home in close proximity to schools you are considering please feel free to contact us. Developing a game plan with clearly defined criteria is the very best way to meet your goals in a active market.


Let us know how we can assist you and your family.

I have used Angies list in the past for contract work. The nice thing is you get consumer reviews who have used them in the past. Some offer discounts.

Tom Priester answered:
Morgana,

You will find the rental market, just like the real estate sales market in Palm Beach County, to be red hot with prices under upward pressure. You will also find that it is not what I would consider an inexpensive place to call home. Worth every penny but not inexpensive. There are a handful of units out there at any one time in this price range but more questions need to be answered before determining if any are a fit. Will a 55+ community work, do you have any pets, how is your credit rating, do you have 1st and last months rent and a security deposit ready. The best new units will rent very quickly so you have to be prepared to act fast.

If you want to contact me we will be happy to see what we can do to help. You might also try sites where owners advertise their own properties as you may have more options.
