Gulf Coast Associates posted this 2,837 Views

If you're reading anything lately about the rise in foreclosures, changing ARM rates, or the depressed real estate market - then you've most likely heard about short sales.

It helps the lender out by eliminating the need for the expense of foreclosure (about $4,000), maintaining the upkeep on the property, and paying the bills for on-going taxes and insura...

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 3 3,258 Views

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist signed a bill today giving more relief to Florida homeowner's burdened by high home insurance costs. The new law extends the freeze on rates for the state-created Citizens Property Insurance Corporation through the end of 2008 and prohibits national property insurance companies from setting up any new Florida-only subsidiaries. While the new law is welcome relief for some, it still doesn't address the issue of the national insurers who set up Florida-only subsid...

CapeCoralHomes posted this 848 Views

Today in the local newspaper there was an article about the property tax issue. In the article the author appears to report that there is relief in site for the property taxes here. This is really not true. While it is true that legislators are working on developing a plan for property tax relief  unfortunately there is not  a proposal in place at the moment. The one that is currently proposed is simply to 'freeze' the current taxes. To me this is not a relief, it's actually ma...
