As the other realtors have said, Whiskey Creek is a very nice community with a nice neighborhood feel to it. U.S. Homes/Lennar was one of the original builders when it was built back in the 1990s.

While you are contemplating the purchase of a re-sale home, you should also stop to consider the purchase of a brand-new home by Lennar Homes, built to today's stringent building codes and presented with an "Everything's Included" philosophy of including a myriad of builder upgrades, such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, crown moulding in all the living area as well as the Master Bedroom suite, in the base price of the home.

You will probably encounter your first problem with the mortgage company, there should be an "over 55 " addendum with your contract, the lender will see your age on the mortgage application and wonder why you ar buying in an over 55 community. You will also have problems with getting approved by the association. The associations approve all new residents and typically the selling price, they will probably ask for a copy of your drivers license. You better get an attorney if you are going to do this to make sure you don't get into trouble.

The most important thing a buyer can do is first of all work with a buyer broker.” As stated by AARP and the Consumer Federation of America from REALTOR® News.

Having lived in Florida since 1965 and selling real estate in Southwest Florida since 1981 I am happy to talk with you about the different areas. Call me anytime. I’m friendly and easy to talk to. I am Beverly Howe, the original Florida Buyer Broker and one of the only “genuine” buyer brokers in all of Southwest Florida. There is NO extra/hidden or additional cost for you to obtain my specialized “exclusive” buyer broker services in your real estate transaction.
On my informative homepage www.FloridaBuyerBuyer.com you will learn about:

The #1 Mistake Real Estate Buyers Make
20 Critical Mistakes Buyers Make
20 Things the Listing Agent Does Not Tell You about Short Sales
Short Sale Fraud
Foreclosures - the Wild West of Real Estate
Unrealistic Buyer Expectations
Buyer Beware
Chinese Drywall

There is no obligation required of you to access this important free educational information on my homepage. The site is informative but does not give the buyers the benefit of my 30 years experience working in the Southwest Florida real estate market unless they call me to schedule time for me to work with them. So, don’t hesitate to call. I am the broker who will actually assist you in finding the best property in your price range and have extensive experience working in 2 counties to help you make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck. It’s best to schedule my time in advance.
On my general “Search Property” link you will be able to search property anywhere in Florida. Please see “Search thru MLS Data” on my homepage to for instructions on how this search link works.
On the “Search thru MLS Data” on my homepage you will find instructions on how to access the different searching options including local REALTOR® MLS data to “search like an agent.” Once you set up a profile on these links, you can save your search and you will automatically be notified when new listings or price changes become available which meet your criteria. It is important that you give yourself at least 15 minutes to sign in and complete an entire search prior to leaving the system in order to set up the program properly. Your search will then be saved and you will be able to change your criteria anytime in the future. I recommend scrolling down the criteria choices and putting a “don’t want” in the short sale box. You want to get a good idea of what is available, don’t base your decision to buy on a short sale.

You will need to copy the links below and paste in your address bar OR go to the Menu Bar on www.floridabuyerbroker.com to click directly on the links to access “Collier Search Link or Lee Search Link.”

To Search Lee County - Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, Estero, Pine Island, Lehigh, Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Springs:

Many homes built between 2000 and 2009, including some renovated homes in Southwest Florida were built with Chinese Drywall. I hope you will take time to learn more about this serious problem at the Chinese Drywall link on my homepage.
I assure you it does not cost you more to obtain my specialized buyer broker services. In the State of Florida only a buyer broker can legally negotiate for a lower price for the buyer and must take care of the buyers’ best interest through out the transaction. A buyer broker is required to give the buyer loyalty, confidentiality, care and diligence, accounting, disclosure of all known pertinent facts and your financial status is protected.
This is my 30th year selling real estate in the Southwest Florida. I have been working as an “exclusive” buyer broker since 1993 and licensed to sell real estate in Florida since 1981. Please feel free to call me anytime on my toll free number 1-800-283-7393.
I am friendly and easy to talk to.
