Each side like to gain points with voters in an election year. A big one is interest rates for all us little folk. So in an election year, interest rstaes always stay low until AFTER the election so as not to tick off voters one way or the other.

Sarina Nichols answered:
Hi, It must be requested for release by the escrow co., and if there are no disputes on who the money should be returned to, and the contract & addenda state the offer has been cancelled formally, then it should be only a matter of processing time. Some local places I've seen quickly cut a check, however, I've seen some places take up to a week to formally 'process' the check and mail it, etc. It just depends, as the escrow holder is bound to the contract terms and not who placed the money into escrow. Your Realtor should be assisting you with your return in a timely manner, OR should be explaining clearly to you what the delay is and an anticipated time frame to return it. Please let me know if you have further questions. Best of luck! Thanks!

Excellent attorney for these type of case. Who was the realtor and who was the broker? Never heard of a deposit not being returned under those circumstances.

What your looking of is someone to give you a radius you need to look in to be the correct distance/time from the amenities and areas of town you want. The city of Naples by legal aspect is small, but Naples is the major city in Collier county and most properties carry a Naples address. If you need help please feel free to contact me, I have lived in "Naples" for close to 30 years and can shed a lot of light on the area.

Sorry I don't know Firserv and the article wasn't much help. However, First remember all real estate is local and general stats don't always reflect the local market. That said I don't have a crystal ball, but with reduced inventory, increasing buyer interest and an improving economy I don't agree with that sentiment. We have had the busiest summer in a number of years (even over last year's which was terifically up). If the econony bottoms no one is safe; but locally 4-5 builders have reentered the market, which they have been out of for a number of years. I have a great track record and would enjoy sitting/talking with you more on this subject. Call KathyBC 800-448-3411 ext 601. (8/23) ... more

Of course. Why are you asking these questions if you are a broker? You're asking on the public forum and I think you'd want to go to the agent to agent section.

Sandra Gold answered:
A real estate agent (or salesperson) is usually the first step to selling real estate. An agent is technically not allowed to collect commission, but rather works for a broker who takes a share. In most states, you must be an active agent for a certain period of time before you can become a broker.

To be a broker means agents work for you, and you can collect and share commissions. You can also open and run your own office, or teach real estate. There is also additional education requirements to becoming a broker.

A Realtor is only a designation that real estate agents are entitled to for being members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Most, but not all agents are members of NAR. Agents that are members are held to higher standards of ethics, training, etc.

Patrick Fields answered:
I've heard this question from prospective buyers who fear that by submitting their pre-approval letter with an amount that is higher than the offer on a particular property compromises their negotiation leverage. I don't think the buyers financial status has a negative impact with regard to the amount of the offer.

The offer is most likely based on market value and local market conditions, so should the price of the home when pratical, well-advised sellers are involved. So a buyer's ability to pay more doesn't suggest a willingness to OVERpay.

Just A Suggestion :-) answered:

In general you do not hear noise from 75 in this area, but you or your representative should always view a particular unit to decide for yourself. What you think is noise may not be so to someone else. People also do not hear some regular noise after living somewhere for a while. Noise is one of those annoyances that are subjective.

As far as the sound wall question are you asking if you install a sound wall in a property? At the time properties were built they had to conform to whatever the current codes were so that is what each has, multiple unit dwellings have firewalls and ways of reducing noise in each dwelling is always a possibility from using certain flooring materials to insulation. If you are concerned with noise maybe you should purchase a single unit on multiple acres further from any major roadways or neighbors.

Living in an area where there a lot of others will also allow you to hear cars/trucks starting, their doors opening and closing etc. Not to mention that property maintenance workers are always around mowing, blowing or weed trimming things.

Good luck!
