 FSBO Help Part 1:"Thinking INSIDE the Box:  Packing to Stay Ahead of the Pack"No matter whether you are using a realtor or selling your home yourself, the first thing you can do to make your home more appealing to buyers is to pre-pack your things.  Before you repaint, before you think about staging, before you even think about putting a sign in the yard, you should take all of the things that aren't necessary to your everyday life and put them in boxes.  Many sellers don't pre-pack for a variety of reasons.  Read on for the most common excuses.#1 Excuse for Not Pre-Packing:  "I Don't Have Anywhere to Put the Boxes"This excuse is usually the most common, but makes the least sense.  Self-storage facilities are plentiful and cost very little.  You can generally find them for less tha $10...

Jupiter, Florida has an area called Abacoa which houses the Spring training facilities for the Florida Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals.  Yesterday (Sunday) was another picture perfect day in South Florida for this time of the year. I was able to take my son (6) along with my Father and Uncle to go watch the Florida Marlins practice.For those who have not made it out to these practice facilities, (Roger Dean Stadium) I am here to tell you that they are so fan friendly.  From the even Staff asking if they can help you find anything down to the players themselves.  My son was able to have his baseball signed by 9 players from the Marlins. (some are very big names) All the players where very nice and took their time to sign all the kids baseballs.  Unfortunately, you also see the ugly s...

When you are ready to sell, you'll want to maximize the emotional appeal of your home. People who are enchanted with your home upon walking in the door are more likely to buy, and at a fair price. Here are some tips to enhance the emotional appeal of your home: * Turn on the lights to create a warm glow and remove the shadows.* Make sure the windows are clean, and open the curtains or blinds.* Keep the kitchen and baths clean and sparkling. Don't leave dishes in the sink.* Remove all clutter, make the beds, and pick up toys. * Pack away items that may detract from a buyer's ability to mentally move into your home such as family pictures or teen posters.* Make the closets look bigger by packing up the clothes you are not using.* Create a relaxing atmosphere with soft music.* Make people ...

 We've all heard it a million times in the past year or two.  "Oh, you're in real estate?  Pretty slow now, huh?" or "The market's pretty bad now, right?"  AHHHHH I want to pull my hair out!  The market isn't bad!  That's actually an impossibility.  According to the laws of supply and demand, if the market is bad for one party, it must be good for the other.  LOW SUPPLY = HIGH DEMAND = GREAT SELLER'S MARKETA few years ago everyone was talking about what a great market it was.  Prices were going up and up and up!  Homes were selling like hotcakes!  The market was GREAT!!!!...... for sellers.  Buyers were facing bidding wars.  Full price offers were being outbid by offers over the asking price.  Who wants to pay MORE than the asking price?  The market was actually only good for the seller...

I am out there looking for suggestions. I have a client coming down looking for an oceanfront estate and I want to know your thoughts. Where are the best places to show in Jupiter? We have a limited time and as much as I love Jupiter I was wondering if anybody had any good ideas of exotic places to show. As much as I love this area, I do not know what it looks like with new eyes. If you were moving to an area, What is the most valuable thing that area could have to you? What would you want that location to have?I was just wondering everyones thoughts as I am planning a tour of Jupiter Island and want to show Jupiter and Hobe Sound.

The down turn in the housing market hurt a lot of people who thought they would make it rich flipping houses. Heck, everyone was doing it. It looked so easy. Just tap the equity in your primary home and wham! We’re raking in the money. No problem it’s easy money. Right about now is where you remember the saying, if it sounds too good to be true…it usually is too good to be true. The clean up of all of this mess created by neophyte investors will take longer than necessary. Coupled with the finance problems in the mortgage industry and the tightening of money by most, if not all lending institutions, have created instant landlords out of flippers. I guess here is where I trow in the line with the realization that something is better than nothing. Yes my friends, we have a surplus of rent...

It's crazy in a slow market how the high end homes are still doing well. I recently read that Palm Beach Island went up over 15% while all areas around it went down. More high end homes have sold on Jupiter Island the last two years then the two years prior. Interest rates don't effect the high end buyer. Inventory will always be lower than homes that are for the average buyer. There is a bit of safety in the market when buying a home that is higher end. True there are not as many people who can afford this type of home, if you can afford these homes you say a price you stick to it and it doesn't affect you if it takes time to sell. So, I fully expect the high end Jupiter Island and Palm Beach home and real estate market to hold strong even as others don't fair so well.
