Michael Morton answered:
There are some condos that have membership fees associated with them in a golf course community. It really depends what community you are looking to purchase a condo in. The best thing I can say is to contact me and I will check into different developments to find you something that best suits your needs.

Thank you,

I am so sorry to hear about this...I'm assuming that the house was sold at sheriff's sale, the sale was confirmed, and the sheriff evicted you or the tenants. I find it hard to believe you would have had no notice. This is a long process and you should have received a whole lot of paperwork over several months. If all of this has taken place, then you likely have no rights to your property. I would suggest contacting the sheriff or the new owner to see if they will allow you to go get your stuff. Outside of their permission, you're out of luck. ... more

We have a due diligence addendum that allows a buyer to walk away in the time period for any reason or for no reason at all. It can be for anything at all. Any means any and if you have gas that day you can walk away. ... more

Unfortunately, no one here will be able to tell you if it's enough to get out of a contract. That's a legal question and we are not allowed to answer those. Consult with your agent and a real estate attorney. ... more

Hi Mimi-

That's a good question! You should work directly with an agent who can help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Annette Lawrence answered:
You are right, this information is important...even critical!
Here is what Trulia says, "Trulia receives listing from ListHub, a third party listing provider. As part of Trulia's syndication agreement with ListHub, Trulia has agreed to limit data edits on core fields (e.g. price and status) specified by ListHub.'

What this means is real estate agents are NOT RESPONSIBLE for the data appearing on Trulia.
Furthermore, those agents who recognize an error such as incorrect SF or # of rooms can not correct this data.

A recent report revealed that 30% of homes listed for sale on real estate aggregate websites such as Zillow and Trulia are actually NOT FOR SALE. The study further points out that homes appearing on these websites appear 7 days after they first appear in the local MLS.

I would think a serious buyer would want to use resources that give them a chance to win, not have their time wasted chasing the illusion of homes for sale and vapors of homes sold long ago. Contact a real estate professional in the area in which you have interest and have them enroll you on their MLS search program.

But, only do so if you are a serious buyer.
The service is FREE.

The bank or Fannie Mae are not going to play games with buyers making low bids, especially from buyers who have not even taken the bare minimum steps to obtain a pre-approval letter and deposit more than a $1,000 (which is a complete joke of a deposit) in a title company's escrow account to obtain an escrow letter.

I see it every day, buyers stepping into this crazy 2012 market with their so called "experience" and "know it all" attitude, telling you they've purchased homes before as 5 or 6 purchases in their lifetime can somehow compare to a Mortgage Broker or realtor's THOUSANDS of deals we've been involved in and refusing to take good advice on how to how best to make their offer.

It's like Michael Jordan trying to give advice to a High School basketball player with few games under his belt back in Jr. High and that player refusing to listen, saying they've played before and know what they're doing, Then watching them lose game after game, still refusing take professional advice, still claiming how they have played before.

Two items that will greatly improve chances

1. Pre-Approval Letter- for as much OVER the asking price as possible, don’t make it look like you can barely afford the property, rather go in from a position of strength.

2. Escrow Letter- with a substantial amount in it, not some weak $1,000 either, put at least 3% or more to show you are a serious buyer

If you have seen a ton of houses and you do not see a PENDING sign ( (within 4-5 weeks) on them, they are not priced within the PRESENT market value.
Well priced property (for their condition) sell well!

You can pick the school then work with me to find a place to live in that schools boundaries. Go to for public schools. Taxes are based on the tax rates, most of them are similar in broward county. If you go with private schools then you can just pick nice communities to live in.
