Bought a townhouse here last year. Could not be happier with our decision. Quiet and beautiful. Surrounded on two sides with State Park land, another side is the Miles Grant Golf Course and the fourth side is another very quiet and lush development, WoodRidge.
There is no new townhouse development in Martin County that matches River Pines.
Martin County is one of the jewel counties in all of Florida.
Super cool living here.

Hi Melody ... Great question ! I am asked this often during my last 25+ years in real estate ! My answer is the real estate market is the simultaneously behavior of both the Buyers and Sellers and is always changing. Therefore, when is the best time for "you" ? When you feel comfortable making your decision. Then to make it a lot easier for yourself when you are ready is working with a Realtor who is very professional and has the local expertise to help you. When you are ready I'll be very happy to personally help you. This is a really beautiful area of Florida ! ... more

In Florida if a mobile home is permanently attached to land that you own it is considered real property, can be bought and sold like a "regular" home and you pay property taxes each year on the value of the mobile home and land. If the mobile home is on a rented lot, it is treated by the state as a vehicle, you have to pay for license tags each year - 1 for each section, so a double wide would require 2 tags.

Although there are now specific tie down regulations for mobile homes, they are still considered high risk in hurricane situations and residents of mobile homes are always included in any mandatory evacuations.

I would suggest you contact a local real estate firm to assist you. If you are looking to m buy, I do believe Florida is like NC in that a buyers agent does not cost you anything. This could save you from waiting for a local agent to find you here and tell you the same thing. This also gives you professional representation. Good Luck ... more

Hi John,

I can tell you are very affluent in the real estate market, which I highly respect and appreciate. It sounds like you may own a condo in Stuart by what you wrote, but I'm not completely certain. It is hard to say when you will no longer be underwater. I wish I could answer that question for every homeowner who bought during the boom. But know that prices are going up and things are looking much better than they did 3-4 years ago and even 2 years ago. If you are able to hang in there I would definitely suggest it, but worst case scenario you could short sale your home. There are some creative ways to still purchase a home, even with a short sale. If you have any questions or need any assistance at any point in time, please let me know as I am here locally and can definitely help you. If selling right now, even a short sale, isn't an option, the best thing to do is just be patient and hang in there. I know it's frustrating and rough, but it's unfortunately the only other thing to do. Please do contact me though if you have any questions. I'll be here when you are ready.

Hi John,

Unfortunately no as it is very generic. If you are looking for the value of a home you would ultimately either need a Realtor or an appraiser to help you with that. If you would like assistance I can definitely help, please just let me know.

When buying from an auction you should try to research the property prior to the sale. The county can let you know of any outstanding liens on the property. You will be responsible for paying for the liens including outstanding property taxes. ... more

- Drive traffic to lead capture page with postcards
- Send sellers to lead capture page with google adwords and facebook ads
- Send sellers to lead capture page with craigslist ads
- Send a monthly email newsletter to your entire database

My landing page is through boldleads which comes with the training that taught me how to drive the traffic. I'm getting 3-5 seller leads a day now, and more on weekends. If I call them right away, I convert 1 out of 10 to a listing appointment with the scripts from the site.
