Tom Priester answered:

As you are aware the railroad tracks run parallel with the eastern border of Evergrene and the sound is certainly a factor for those properties that back to the eastern wall of the community. I have a client who purchased a home that does and has regretted it ever since. He tells me that they feel the vibration when the trains go by in the middle of the night. The train also by law has to sound its horn when approaching the intersections at Donald Ross and Hood Roads.

Further west in the community the impact is far less but when purchasing a home close to the track I recommend visiting the property at night when a train goes by and make a knowledgable decision.

Dear Ann,
Evergrene belongs to Marsh Pointe Elementary, Watson Middle School & William Dwyer High School.

About 95% of buyer's agents who cover Jupiter also cover Palm Beach Gardens, I'd recommend choosing one agent to help you find what you need.

Contact me at any time if I can be of further assistance.

"Excellent" is a relative term and so much will depend on the particular school zone you want to remain in. The local rental market remains very strong but we do have some furnished units available in the area that may fit the needs of you and your family. If you would like to give me a call I would be happy to assist you in finding the perfect spot.

I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Always at Your Service,

Hi Ann, Palm Beach Gardens & Jupiter are signature cities with a large population of children. There good high paying jobs in this area such as Scripps, FAU honors college, Max Plank. It is a pricier area than Boca. Schools are "A" rated, our beaches are the best with most households only 10 minutes from the beach. I am wondering why you are considering 2 cities so far apart from each other. Feel free to contact me, if you would like a tour of the area.

Joan Lorberbaum Moore answered:
The typical fee/commission is 10% of the gross amount of the lease. The listing will be placed on the MLS (which in most cases will also be fed out to all the online real estate sites)and the 10% commission will be split evenly between the listing agent brokerage and the tenant's agent's brokerage. The listing agent assists the owner with drawing up the lease if it is a simple one, which most are. However, if it is a more complicated lease than one will need to have an attorney do that because agents are prohibited from doing so. Often it is the agent who supervised the move-in and move-out of the tenant.
The tenant pays for a background/credit check which can be ordered by either agent but the listing agent will review it for or with the owner.
Also, many brokerages now charge a transaction fee in addition to the commission. My company has a rental transaction fee of $95.00.

I have found that they all require some sort of either golf or social membership as a requirement to own there.

Erika Atkins answered:
You will need to find a rental that you are interested in and then have a conversation with the landlord about what your situation is. There are many people out there in the same situation with poor credit and in those cases a landlord may work with you or may request upfront funds for the rental. It's going to be a case by case issue so best advice I can give is to find the property that meets your criteria and then sell yourself as a good tenant. ... more

There are some sources for " International" Investors . The Amount of the
purchase would have to be large enough to attract lender interest and
Down-Payment requirements would approach 30-35% in most cases.
Contact me direct on Palm Beach County Investments you would be
interested in. Best of Success!

During the initial building phase of the community, there was a project supervisor who was less than diligent about standards. WCI (the builder) remedied the problems as they arose. Hope this is helpful!

Commissions are normally paid by the seller, and are negotiated between the seller and the listing agent. As a buyer, it will rarely come directly out of your pocket, and therefore, your ability to influence the commission is limited. ... more

Hi Wayne,

Listings on Trulia come from the MLS. The MLS only accepts listings input by Realtors.

Helen Chong answered:
Are you using an agent for this transaction? Did you mean you bought a REO or you bought a property from a foreclosure auction? If you have an agent who represents you, your agent should be able to take care of that by providing "request for the seller to perform" and give them 24 hours to get back to you, so you can either move forward by cancelling the contract or at least get some sort of a response. If you really want this property, you may just have to wait it out. the problem with REOs is that, they sometimes have clouds on title and they have problems with locating proper deeds and proper signatures from different departments and sellers (depends on how many banks have owned this property before). I am sorry to hear that you are receiving such a HORRIBLE service! That's the problem when banks use their designated title company who is completely overwhelmed by the volume and ultimately, the consumer has to suffer and still pays for the service charges! They need to at least keep you informed! Is this a title company that is in your local area? You or your agent should just drive over there and demand a response from the title officer! ... more
