Jennifer Mackay posted this 873 Views

Many of my customers are surprised to learn that yes, I do work weekends and some holidays.  Why? Home buyers and sellers are typically at work during the day.  They have very little time during the week to look at or discuss Panama City real estate purchases.  The time they typically do have to view real estate purchases in Panama City and the Beach area is evenings after work.  As the days grow shorter, some properties may be difficult to view during early...

Marin posted this 687 Views

In recent years lenders have become very creative in their strategies to sell mortgages.  You can find jumbo loans, hybrids, pledged asset mortgages, and a variety of other complicated schemes, including shared appreciation, wraparound, and simple interest plans.  I find that even the most savvy of my clients who are looking for real estate in Marin County or lofts in Oakland are often confused by all the options available. Not understanding the implications of the different lending strateg...

When most people think of Pasco County, they imagine smaller older homes at huge discounts along the west coast of the county, and wide open rural areas more inland.  But there's way more to Pasco County than that.  In fact, Pasco County over the past few years has entered the luxury market. Buying a luxury home in Pasco County takes on a new meaning of luxury.  For the same price as a luxury home in South Tampa, you just might be able to add on a waterfront view or a few ac...
