Ben,
Whom do you have to prove it to? The office you bought it through should be able to send proof of insurance to whoever needs it. You should have a copy of your Policy, but generally it is your agent or the company who will have to send the proof of Insurance.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Genny

The salient features which make this area so saleable are the central Venice location. Located between Center Road, west to the Venice beaches, west of River Road and north of 41, zip 34293 is proximal to golf courses, shopping health services and restaurants. The use of either Tampa, Ft. Myers, and SRQ airports makes it easily accessible. Of course the fishing and all water sports abound. I have many international buyers contact me from websites such as Trulia, etc searching from homes in Venice. It is affordable country living. I encourage you to call me directly for sales information in a particular neighborhood and current sale comparables.

Hello Phil: With many more available rentals lately, it's especially important to focus on LOCATION, as well as price. Venice Island has a track record of being highly desirable for seasonal renters, and you would be sure to enjoy your time there as well. Whether you're interested in a single family home or in a condo, there is inventory available for you to consider. In houses, those with 3 bedrooms are greater value than 2 bedrooms. In condos, the majority are 2-bedrooms, with only a few 3-bedroom units out there. 1-bedroom units also rent well in the right locations, and the prices are very competitive.
If your question of "evaluation in time" is asking how long it takes to close, plan on 30 days or less if there is no mortgage, and 60 days with a mortgage. If the question really means the time when you should make your buy, the answer is well before the end of the year, so that you'll have time to secure tenants for the winter months.

Venetia

Venetia is a beautiful Mediterranean style community in the heart of South Venice, FL. Centrally located near all services and conveniences, Venetia and its residents are close to I-75, US 41, shopping, golf courses, schools, airports, hospitals, entertainment and warm sandy beaches.

Venetia is situated on 322 acres just west of Tamiami Trail and south of Jacaranda Boulevard. The entrance to this gated, guarded community is graced by two large waterfalls, signaling the casual, natural environment that waits beyond the Venetia gate. A lovely, landscaped center island with fountains and flowers flanks the wide community road, and the neighborhood is designed to integrate with its natural surroundings, with many home sites backing onto nature preserves. Venetia features a 4,000 square foot clubhouse, two lighted tennis courts, an outdoor heated swimming pool, parks, playgrounds and nature trails.

When it is complete the Venetia community will be home to 450 families and individuals, with 180 multi-family condominiums and villas, and many single-family homes. The ‘builders of choice’ in Venetia are Venetian Homes and Waterford Homes. There are so many amenities and special touches here! As you drive through the Venetia community and pass the gentle curves and welcoming entrances of these Mediterranean style homes you will feel as if you are in a gracious, old Italian neighborhood. But all the homes here are new, with the modern conveniences and grand beauty you want in your home. Appointments and features include high 10’ ceilings in the bedrooms, tile floors, spacious rooms with plenty of built-in storage, and even solid marble window sills.

If you want the casual, Florida lifestyle, for an affordable price, Venetia is for you! Contact us today for more information about the Venetia community and the surrounding Venice area.

There are currently 12 properties for sale in Venetia. Here's the list:
http://mfr.mlxchange.com/Pub/EmailView.asp?r=713148935&s=MFR&t=MFR

There is a quarterly HOA fee and it depends on what section you are in. Some also have a monthly maintenence fee as well. This will be listed in the listing. The taxes are also listed in each listing.

Please let me know if I can help you further!

Hi Mary,

Title companies represent the closing of the purchase and sale. They do not represent you personally. You will receive a title policy. An attorney who specializes in Real Estate will represent you personally, and can be well worth the money.

Shannon Moore - The Moore Team answered:
Hi Mary,

I am not aware of any issue to date with those condos and Chinese drywall, although they were all built within the time period when the Chinese drywall was being used.

There are many "indicators" of Chinese drywall. First, all of the homes/condos I have been in that have Chinese drywall have smelled terrible. Next, you can unscrew a few of the light switch covers and look at the copper wiring. If it is black, then you likley have Chinese drywall. Another indicator is the A/C coils. They are usually black as well if there is evidence of Chinese drywall. You can also go in the attic and see if you can locate the backend of any of the drywall and see if it is marked with the name Knaff or Made in China.

I would recommend however that you have a qualified home inspector check out any place you intend to buy. They should be able to spot the tell tale signs.

Good luck and let me know if I can be of assistance in your condo purchase!

Hi Mary Ann,
As far as a financing side if the buyer makes an offer higher then the asking price and they are getting a mortgage they will have to come up with the difference in cash of the appraised value, plus the down payment plus closing costs. If the buyer is paying cash then it is a non issue.

Close on a house by November 30, 2009,and you can apply for your 8000 tax credit. There is a page on my website with the directions at www.DestinHomeRealtor.com that tells you more about it. There are some income limits, so read the instructions carefully--you can also call a lender and they can help you as well--they are well acquainted with all government program requirements.

Good Luck,

Jim and Marian,

Several clients have purchased homes in both Waterford and Sawgrass. Your question about city limits- in my opinion there is very little difference between living within the city limits and outside. City property taxes are slightly higher, but you have the opportunity to vote in city elections. As far as Chinese drywall goes, I have heard of no occurences in either Sawgrass or Waterford. The homes in Sawgrass are newer, however, and it is possible that there may be something there. There are inspections to determine the drywall origin, so a newer home can be "cleared" in that regard.

No, it sounds like the new standard is a 620 credit score. Apparently there are still a few lenders that do 580 FHA, but that's going away quickly.

Hi, Mary -

We all wish we had a crystal ball to know exactly when the bottom will hit. If you are looking under $300K, you have quite a bit of competition for the best properties, as this is the most active part of the market. There was a very good article in the Herald Tribune concerning the market that I would be happy to forward to you.

It is always more convenient and cost effective to move directly into a home you purchase, so I would base your timing on what best meets your needs. If you have very specific "wants", then it may take awhile to find the perfect property.

You can search all area listings on my website and/or request an automated search (www.VeniceFloridaRealEstateSearch.com. I am happy to assist and discuss your personal needs, to make your search the highest and best use of your time. I hope to hear from you and see you in sunny Florida soon!

If a home is priced right to begin with the selling is going to be 90 to 95% of the asking price. IF the sellers are highly motivated the selling price could be a lot less.

Brian,

This is a great question. Have you contacted the Venice Library or the Venice Historical Society? They may be able to assist you with your search.

We will ask around and notify you if anything turns up.
