Dave,

There are always rental opportunities in the area. However, with this being our peak season for northern visitios, availability isn't as great now as it will be in a couple of months. There are still rentals just not as many. Our recommendation is to not do a 6 or 12 month lease but to try to find a rental that is month-to-month. In this way, should the right property to purchase present itself, you'll not have a lease holding you back. We would be happy to support you rental needs and buying interests.

Best wishes,

Bill

Tammy Hayes answered:
It depends on the auction company and their requirements. Some auction agencies will allow either the buyer or the buyer's Realtor to register and bid on the property. You ususally register online. Some will only allow the Realtor to make the bid for the buyer. You usually do not get to see inside of the home ahead of time, and some allow you to preview the home 1 hour before the auction. If they do allow you to go inside the home ahead of time, be sure to check everything or have an inspector go with you. Some charge a fee to the buyer in addition the price of the home. They ususally require cash or a cashier's check. Check ahead of time to see if there are any liens, open permits, etc. on the home. Get a comparative market analysis on the home. Just do your research before bidding on the home. Be sure to know the date of the auction. ... more

Hi Angela,

I'm not sure if I understand the question correctly. Are you wondering if you can do a 1031 Exchange of 3 for 1?

I also have a few blogs on my Trulia profile that may be of use to you when considering values on homes. That information is pertinent all across the country.

Gem,

The fact that there are only two golf courses in Port Charlotte may be a contributing factor to Port Charlotte Golf Club being considered the top course. There are a number of other area courses that you may wish to consider as well. Heron Creek, Bobcat Trail, Sabal Trace, and the other Port Charlotte course at Riverwood.

Feel free to contact us for additional information.

Good luck,

Bill

I would be happy to send you some listings to review from the MLS or you can search my web site. Most of the homes in our area do not have hardwood floors because of the humidity. Owners quite often install laminate floors that look like wood. We have engineered hardwood in our home in Port Charlotte, Florida. It has a lot of scratches in it from the dogs nails. We have light maple and it is a soft wood.

Wanda Phillips answered:
I am a broker in Florida and I think I know what you are referring to. However, in most cases, somewhere within all the fine print of the addendums or the bank's contract, it does give the buyer the option to get out of the contract and get a refund of thier earnest money deposit if there is a serious title issue that cannot be cleared. Also, you usually can request a copy of the title committment from the title company during the due diligence period so that you have a better idea of exactly what the exceptions are and what steps are being taken to clear them. Some exceptions cannot be cleared prior to closing but at least you know what they are within the inspection period timeframe while you can still cancel if you so desire.

I have closed over 100 bank owned properties within the past couple years and while I agree the contracts are pretty one sided in the banks favor, I have not seen one that would not allow the buyer to back out if a serious title issue occurred. In most cases, these disclosures and addendums are covering the bank for minor issues that are non issues in the overall investment or purchase. Each transaction is different though - so I suggest you have an attorney look over a sample of the contracts clauses you are referring to and give you a professional opinion.
