You have applied for your mortgage; your lender has verified your employment history, income, bank funds and credit report, and has now issued you your mortgage pre-approval letter.  Now that you have your mortgage pre-approval letter, please don’t: go out and buy new furniture buy or lease a new car apply for any other loans open a credit card account change employers co-sign on a loan or do anything else that can change your income to debt ratio, savings account balance or your credit score.  Any change can make it harder for you to obtain the loan you had been pre-approved for. Just because you have your mortgage pre-approval letter in hand doesn’t mean it’s a done deal.  It is not unusual for a mortgage company, just before your closing, to again run a credit report, verify your emp...

Today is a fantastic time to buy in Pinecrest. The real estate market has is given home buyers are fantastic opportunity in acquiring real estate in Pinecrest at a very low price.

You can get this pre-qualification over the phone. Speak to your Florida bank that is familiar with Pinecrest.

You can adquire a wonderful property today in Pinecrest at greatly reduced prices. Who would have imagined that that property values in Pinecrest would be so low? An important number of the transactions are either foreclosures or short sales in Pinecrest. You have real opportunity to find your new home Pinecrest.     If you will be financing the property that you are interested in buying. Don't be afraid and contact your local Florida bank and get pre-qualifed.

Should I sell now or wait it out?  That is the question so many homeowners are asking themselves today.  I do not have a crystal ball but I tell my Pinecrest Florida homeowners that if they want to sell, they need to get their home on the market ASAP!  You will most likely get more money for your home today than you will 6 months from now. Here is a current example of what the Pinecrest Florida real estate market is doing.  Eight months ago, in April, I was asked to do a market analysis on a Pinecrest Florida home.  At that time I told the homeowners they could expect to sell their home for $825,000.  I met with these same folks yesterday to go over an updated market analysis.  I showed them that today they could expect to sell their home for $785,000.  The expected sales price of their...

Pinecrest Farmer's Market at the Pinecrest Gardens What an absolutely gorgeous day for the opening of the Pinecrest Farmer's Market at the Pinecrest Gardens! I woke up and it was a breezy 52 degrees, and when I arrived at the Farmer's Market, it was 62 degrees. And the location has changed this year. The market is at the back of the parking lot, in the shade! And it's much larger. The Market Company has done a phenomenal job of creating a true farmer's market! You could be anywhere USA! Here are some of the things that caught my eye today.                                                                                                                                        The first photo is an amazing Jack Fruit from Jourdan's Beautiful Food, the second photo is of organic radishes from...

If you don't see a graph below, please click the title of this blog to be taken directly to our blog page. In Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, no one has had greater success in the luxury market than Coldwell Banker this year.  In total sales, we have sold more listings than any other company and we have had more buyer controlled sales this year than any other company in the luxury market.  For the first ten months of 2010, Coldwell Banker Realtors have sold 2.3 homes for every home sold by the number 2 broker in units.  In sales volume in SE Florida, we have sold 2.09 times the sales volume of the number broker in that category. There's no better reason than this for a Seller to hire a Coldwell Banker Realtor. We are proud to be part of the Coldwell Banker family, working from the Pine...

The South Florida community will get a chance to see one of the finest aerial demonstration teams in the world and the 482 FW is proud they have elected to come to Homestead." Last year my family and I, and over 200,000 other people, attended the "Wings Over Homestead" air show and we had a wonderful time!  It's one of those events that makes you feel proud to be an American.  Gates open at 8:00am both days, get there as early as...
