Gulf Coast Associates posted this 3,845 Views

With Hurricane season officially underway, we thought it would be good reminder for those home buyers getting close to closing on their recent Florida purchases to remember two very important homeowner and flood insurance facts: If you're going to need flood insurance on your home and haven't gotten it in place yet, you're going to have to wait 30 days for the policy to go into effect. Once the season starts, you are locked out of coverage for a month from the time you apply. The lone ...

I have done some crazy things in my days as a web developer to test theories, or prove points, but I think this one will probably take the cake.

We have what some might call a small wager going - a bet if you will: I think I can sell a house (Without any prior real estate sales experience or training)...

One of the perks our Real Estate Company provides is a Cruise each year for their top producing Realtors from Columbus and Phenix City.    Donna and I were benefactors of that trip this year.    We cruised from Fort Lauderdale to Key West and on to Cozumel.   We had a great time to relax and experience new things.  In Cozumel we took an excursion where we zip lined, repelled off a 60 foot tower, and snorkeled.    In Key West we ...

A Buyer's Market for Arlington VA Real Estate in Clarendon -- NOT!!!

jseville posted this 2,403 Views
