There are currently 283 active Englewood FL short sale listings.  The highest price short sale listing is currently $485,000 and the lowest price short sale listing is $33,000.  There are 234 short sales that are currently under contract. Are you struggle to pay your mortgage payments?  Have you lost your job?  A short sale might help you avoid foreclosure and start over again. A short sale is where a lender agrees to accept less than what they are owe in order to facilitate a sale of the defaulted homeowner's property.  Recently the government has made it easier to resolve foreclosure and pre-foreclosure by enacting the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act.  This allows a homeowner in danger of foreclosure to seek a more favorable resolution.  Before starting my career real estate I wo...

I just got a Bank of America Short Sale approved for my customer on 1640 Faust Drive in Englewood FL in 60 DAYS.  I was able to get this Bank of America Short Sale Bank Approval using the new Equator system with Bank of America.  This was the first time using Bank of America's Equator System and was frustrated with it at first but was were able to push the Short Sale through in a timely manner and get bank approval in 60 days.  I am very happy to be able to help my sellers navigate through this difficult time and help them move on with their lives.  If you have any questions regarding Florida Short Sales in Sarasota County or Short Sales in Charlotte County give me a call.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have free of charge, no strings attached.

This little guy was crawling around in my back yard and I just had to take a picture of him and share him with you.  He did not like me getting so close to him and I found out just how quickly these turtles can move.  Contact Kari A.

This is something that I felt I must share with everyone.  Check out the fish my son and his friend caught a few nights ago.  After they brought this in, my son and his friend carried this enormous fish in their bare hands about a 1/4 of mile back to our house (being very careful not to drop it back into the water of course).  When arriving back home, the both of them ran as fast as they could up to the house (about 800 feet to the house from the creek).  They were so out of breath they almost couldn't tell us about their big catch.  Dad and his sisters all ran back to the creek to see what they caught, not believing the story they were telling us. This is a whopping 43" Snook!  I can't believe my son and his friend brought this gigantic fish in.  They were so proud of themselves.  The...

South Gulf Cove ~ Englewood Florida Between Port Charlotte and Boca Grande, there is an old Florida-style waterfront community called South Gulf Cove that will take your breath away! Only minutes away from the beautiful beaches of Gasparilla Island and Boca Grande, South Gulf Cove is the perfect place to call home.  You can enjoy all of Florida's favorite past times - boating, water skiing, kayaking, fishing, shelling - all so close to home!  It's not required that you be a beach lover to live here, however; South Gulf Cove is in close proximity to shopping, golf, galleries and every amenity that you could want.  With a private boat dock and ramp in place, South Gulf Cove residents can sail or motor their way into Charlotte Harbor and straight through to the Gulf of Mexico!  Even the ta...

Imagine sitting on that swing, watching the sunset over the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico - what a wonderful way to have a long autumn day come to an end - perhaps a sunset walk along the white sands of Englewood Beach, picking up the odd sea shell to add to your collection on the front porch -That is what life is like at this time of year down here in South Florida! Watching the seagulls soar over the foaming waves - the occasional dolphin playing in the surf - life is great when you live in heaven on Earth!!!

Englewood is located in Charlotte County and is in many ways reminiscent of Old Florida. There are still the quaint little shops and the beaches are almost never that crowded. It is a place that those of us who have lived in the state for many years long for. It is home!Englewood has newer condo associations sprouting up all over the place and there is even a Home Depot being build out on SR 776 as you head toward Port Charlotte. But it has not lost it's charm yet! You can run around in shorts all day here and it is totally acceptable!!!Englewood has some wonderful restaurants and is only a 10 minute drive north of Boca Grande, the fishing paradise of Florida!!!!

 Showing property early today took on a whole new dimension. As I left my home to venture out to my first appointment, I realized that today was going to call for some unusual real estate gear. With all the smoke from the Georgia and Florida wild fires being blown over southwest Florida today, even those of us in Englewood experienced ASH SHOWERS early in the day.  Yes, small particles of ash were falling from the sky and accumulating on our cars and making it hard to breath. Stinky too!  I had flashbacks to Mt. St. Helen's! I had to protect my customers!So, back into the house I went to dig out a few surgical masks (from the costume closet) and umbrellas (just in case) to provide to my two elderly customers.  As I approached the sweet elderly couple, equipped with ASH DAY trappings... ...

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE! A while back I posted information on a closing that took 3 years to happen. Today an agent told me their own horror story about a closing that took 2 years and another that was dragged out 3 months due to misunderstandings.  I'm currently working with a customer who has suffered through one failed closing (which luckily we accepted an offer on the next day after posting a classified ad on Craig's List! Woo-hoo!) to jump into another that is 60 days past the original contract closing date (Boo-hoo!).What's the record here for delayed closings? Is 3 years tops? or has someone else encountered more of a horror story than that?  What's been your longest delayed closing? Why? Was it something we could all learn from or is it just a sign of our current economic market ...

Saturday night, Baby Huey flew in from the Shadow Hill Kennel breeders in Missouri by way of a two hour lay over in Dallas. What a trip he had! Thankfully, he came from reputable breeders who had treated him extremely well his first eight weeks of life.  He is big and strong and healthy.  Thankfully, the Dallas airport cargo employees treated him to water and two hours of cooing and petting.  We know this because, like expectant parents, we were concerned for his safety and well-being during the long and potentially traumatic travel day--SO WE CALLED! We had never flown an animal anywhere and we were pleasantly surprised at the care these employees take with the animals. Most impressive!  Thankfully, he won the hearts of all who passed him by and he was treated like royalty all the way ...
