  Windermere Luxury Foreclosed Homes for Sale in Florida   Winderemere has more luxury homes for sale than any other city in Central Florida.  It also has some nice high end bank foreclosures.  Currently Windermere has six bank forclosed homes priced from $500,000 to $1,000,000.     A Windermere foreclosure simply means that the Windermere home owner was unable to make the house payments and the bank re-posessed the property... no different than a dealership reposessing the car.   These Windermere Luxury foreclosed homes range in size from 2500 square feet to more than 5,000 square feet and range from $125-$200 a square foot.      Are all Windermere foreclosed homes a good deal? The short answer is "No".  The long aswer is that it "just could be" depending upon the bank negotiations fi...

Windermere Butler Chain of Lakes Home or just a Windermere Lakefront home?  The difference may or may not be important, depending on the home buyer lake needs.  A home on a Lake in Windermere is typically one that you can boat, ski and fish on but access is limited to that particular lake. The Butler Chain of Lakes is a group of 11 lakes in Windermere that are accessible to each other.  The largest lake on the Butler chain is Lake Butler at about 1,700 square feet and the smallest is Fish Lake at about 24 acres.  If you are into boating, the Butler Chain of Lakes is second to none, as you can meander through several lakes on the chain of lakes. There are about 60 lakefront homes for sale in Windermere with about 25 of those on the Butler Chain of Lakes.   Prices for a Windermere Lake fr...

  There are about 100 Windermere waterfront homes for sale, but not all Windermere waterfront homes are alike... Search here for Windermere Lake Homes  There is prime waterfront and undesirable waterfront...there is direct Windermere water front view and water views only from the second floor balcony...lakes for water skiing and lakes only for fishing...there are clean Windermere lakes and dirty Windermere lakes...lake clarity all depends how the lakes flow and other factors.  Windermere has both small lakes and large lakes with the  top choice waterfront property being part of the Windermere Chain of Lakes.  Windermere waterfront lots or homes that are on the Windermere Butler Chain of Lakes are the most desirable because they can access the other 11 lakes on the chain.

There are many who think that no one is allowed to renegotiate an "AS IS" contract after inspections.... Really? Says who?  Show me that rule... An "as is" contract only means that the seller does not WISH to do any repairs...it does not mean that seller won't, or can't...or that the Buyers Agent  should not dare ask.   I just had a client buy a  house in Windermere that was relatively new and looked good...real good.  Come to find out the pool heater did not work, the A/C handler was bad, the salt tank was shot,the dishwasher leaked plus a bunch of more small items. Yes, we had an "as is" contract.  Yes, the seller was not obligated to fix anything. YES, WE DID ASK FOR THE SELLER TO FIX SOME THINGS. Yes, the seller did fix the 6 items we requested, because sometimes sellers do not even...

"Home Buyers overpay for housing by more than $10 billion annually due to poor representation" according to Ralph Nadar of the Consumer Federation of America.  I heard him say that many years ago, which means that today with the higher price of homes, the number by which home buyers overpay for a property is probably greater than 10 billion.  Mr. Nadar has always been a supporter of the consumer and therefor a friend and advocate to good home buyer representation AKA Exclusive Buyer Agency, the purest  form of buyer representation with no conflict of interest.                     Good home buyer representation is an exception, not the norm and is practiced primarily by a specialty niche of buyer advocates; Exclusive Buyers Agents.  There are very few real estate agents that take on the ...

Some Home buyers with no intention or qualifications for buying a Windermere Million Dollar Luxury Home wants to view a few of these million dollar properties, anyway.  There are agents who chomp at the bit to show luxury homes to just anyone...not me.  I do not want to waste my time, the listing agents time or mislead the seller into thinking that a "qualified" buyer is actually viewing their property.  This "pretending" simply is not fair to anyone and I prefer to maintain my credibility of working with home buyer clients that have the ability to close on the property that I set the appointment for...there are also listing agents that require documentation before even setting the appointment.  That I can understand too. Some agents think that asking someone for proof of a higher net w...

This morning I was giving Mike an update on a Windermere waterfront home that our client wanted to see...he said "Why buy in Windermere on water if there is no water view?  Living on waterfront, is all about the view"  How true! Lets face it, a Windermere waterfront home on a prime lake is pricey...most people want the 180 unobstructed view.. and then there are the homes that have so many trees or are the home is angled wrong or the waterfront home has no windows on the back.  What's the point?  What were they thinking? This home could easily have been built and bought for less on a dry lot. Windermere waterfront homes range from $400,000 to about $8 Million...and yes, a couple much higher. If you are going to pay extra for water frontage in Windermere, then I think you should not have ...

Francisco Orchilles, a Realtor with Keller Williams Classic Realty in Orlando, helped a pair of first time home buyers purchase their first home in the town of Windermere, located in the Southwest portion of Orange County. These first time home buyers had been searching for their perfect home in one of the most competitive real estate markets that Windermere has seen in 7 years. By being aggressive and using his negotiation skills, the Orlando Realtor was able to find them a home in their dream location.   The purchased property is located in the Silver Woods neighborhood of Windermere, on the border of Windermere and the popular area known as Doctor Phillips. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a little over 1700 square feet. Silver Woods is a great starter neighborhood for first tim...

Buying a Windermere home?  Interview your buyers agent! Many Home Buyers will interview Buyers Agents before they hire a Windermere Buyers Agent  to work with...a excellent thing to do.  Lets face it having a relationship with a Windermere real estate buyers agent who is going to advise you on your most expensive purchase, is like dating...not everyone is a good fit for what you want. Here are some interview tips:  1.  Find an agent who advertises themselves as a buyers agent.  Skip the "top producers" as they are focused on getting more listings and will hand you over to the newest member of their team....typically someone inexperienced.  You want someone that is experienced in the business of being a buyers representative. 2.  Ask hard questions...ask them how they would handle situat...

Windermere was established in 1889 and works hard to maintain that small town feel. For instance, many local streets are still dirt roads.

What should a Windermere Home Buyer offer on the Windermere home? This is a question that we get asked often and I always have an answer..."it all depends".  Every property is different and I do have a real answer but first I like to "chat" with the listing agent.  Sometimes the listing agent will get miffed that I am even asking, but most of the time they will talk some...I like it when they give me some insight into the sellers motivation.  Besides It IS MY BUYER AGENT JOB to gather all the information I can when I am an Windermere Exclusive Buyers Agent representing only the best interest of the home buyer buying in Windermere Florida. So here is my honest answer to a Windermere home buyer offer... based on experience. How badly do you want the property?  If this is not the house of ...
