Jupiter Farms Jupiter Farms  is located west on Indiantown Road. One of the main things it's known for is the tremendous amounts of land it has to offer its residents. Minimum lot size is a quarter of an acre, so it's perfect if you have pets that either need a lot of room to run around or have a tendency to be vocal. On top of that, there are absolutely no pet restrictions. Many houses in Jupiter Farms have barns, suitable for raising and keeping horses. It's an equestrian community, so it's not unusual to see horse crossing signs on some of the roads. Whether you prefer ranch style or more modern looking houses, Jupiter Farms has it all, depending on what you want. Because of the enormous lot sizes, Jupiter Farms is very quiet and an excellent place for solitude and escape. If you do ...

Other than Mother's Day, this past week in Jupiter, Florida, has been the busiest all year! And, from what I'm hearing and reading, all agree. My market reports so far this month surpass April's numbers... and I thought those were good. Speaking of Mother's day, did anyone do an open house that Sunday?  We intended to... but my family persuaded me to breakfast in bed.  And, while I was thoroughly enjoying my Bellini & fruit, I felt odd (a bit guilty) not holding an open house somewhere. By the end of the day it proved to be pretty quiet. I had one call about a waterfront rental. Did anybody have an unusually busy Mother's Day?

With 18 years of the mortgage industry prior to becoming a Realtor in Jupiter. I can answer your question easily. The problem is most loan originators are 'order takers'. Few, understand how to deal with red flags prior to loan submission to the underwriter. If they do understand, chances are their loan processors don't.  So, if there isn't proper communication between LO & loan Processor, red flags aren't addressed. Thus, the 11th hour loan declination!  My suggestion is a top mortgage professional - one with a good loan processor.  Smaller, boutique type shops are the best.  Each loan is given careful thought at loan origination and during processing. With a small company the underwriter is usually available to the LO. Everyone works together towards the mutual goal which is closing t...

With our economy in South Florida working at a snails pace many of us our opting to hold on to our cars longer these days.  This in turns mean we will have to perform more maintaince on our vehicles.

 FSBO Help Part 7:"Drop the Price Before You Pay the Price"I know, I know.  The house behind you isn't as nice as yours so you should price yours higher.  Or, you spent $30,000 remodeling last year so you should be able to add that amount to the asking price.  Or, the house down the street is the same as yours so you should be able to ask the same amount that they got last year.  Well maybe you should be able to do all these things, but the fact is that in this market you can't."But, the house behind mine isn't as nice..."Don't decide on a price based on the "niceness" of your home compared to others for sale in your neighborhood.  If you neighbor is asking $500,000, and your home has better upgrades, your first impulse might be to price yours at $525,000.  Remeber, just because your ne...
