Get to know Lois Ermatinger
I love Florida and I love real estate! As a Realtor, investor and 35+ year Florida resident, I know the market. There has never been a better time in history to buy Florida real estate. Contrary to what media reports, Florida property, especially beach property, is still in high demand, and available properties are fewer in number than even one year ago. So NOW is the time to take advantage of the low prices and low interest rates and buy your Florida dream home or investment property before someone else does!
RE/MAX is the #1 real estate company in the world for both buyer and seller satisfaction according to J.D. Power & Associates and RE/MAX Preferred is the ORIGINAL RE/MAX office in Pinellas County, Florida!
Whether you are looking for expertise to sell your property or savvy assistance in finding the best deals on the market to buy, call me today!
For HOME BUYERS...Because I am an experienced home buyer myself, I know that many of the available properties in Florida are short sales, bank owned properties, or homes in need of repair or updating. These homes may not qualify for FHA financing,which accounts for most of the residential home loans today. FHA offers a renovation loan called 203k which allows a home buyer who is going to occupy the property for at least a year to roll the renovation costs right into their mortgage and in some cases, even to defer up to 6 months of their mortgage payments while renovations are being completed. I am a certified 203k specialist and can help walk you through the process of preparing to buy your home, taking advantage of FHA's 203k renovation loans.
For INVESTORS... In the process of buying and selling properties with my husband and business partners for more than 12 years, I've mentored with Dean Graziosi, the most innovative and giving real estate investment teacher out there. Dean has bought hundred of investment properties with strategies that few investors know about, and my husband and I were guest presenters at Dean's "Gain the Edge 2011" event in Phoenix, speaking to 300+ investors about how we bought and sold real estate using none of our own money. I love helping brand new investors get started and helping seasoned investors be more efficient in their search for great investment deals.
For SELLERS...When it's time to sell your home or investment property, there is a balance between getting the best possible price for your property and getting fast results. I will use all the tools and experience at my disposal to help you price your property appropriately and the #1 branding of RE/MAX to be sure your property is seen by the greatest number of qualified buyers.
