They say salespeople are not detail oriented. Well, they should be. My picky OCD personality has helped me market, sell, and close many Emerald Coast of Florida properties over the years.  Being picky helps the client.  Correct representation is imperative. Details can be dollars.Just recently, this picky agent sold a waterfront condo on Okaloosa Island with a boat slip.  Having sold two in the past few months made me dig further when the listing agent said he didn’t know anything about a boat slip transfer fee.   I was concerned, because I knew that there were boat slip transfer fees payable to the Florida DEP upon sale of a property.  I wanted to tell my buyer what this fee would be.  (Calculated at $1,000 x linear foot of the slip x 6% + 7% sales tax ).The association management comp...

The Florida Realtors/Florida BAR contract for sale and purchase of real estate will change effective November 1.   Updates to the financing clause addressing appraisals may affect you. Now, the mortgage approval deadline will also include the receipt of a satisfactory appraisal. The previous version of the contract did not have an appraisal deadline.BACKGROUND:Appraisals have been backlogged in the busy Destin, Florida real estate market, and all over Florida for the past year. Appraisals, or alternate valuations (for example, “desktop” appraisals, appraiser-assisted, or AVM “automated valuation models”) are part of the mortgage loan process, and how a lender vets a property they are lending on. Appraisals can take two to three weeks, and many assignments are turned down by appraisers d...

Just sold! Two condos in Palm Court Yacht Club - Unit 208 and another unit (to be named upon closing) on the penthouse level at 321 Bream Ave, Okaloosa Island, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida!Palm Court Yacht Club is a little known waterfront condo complex on Okaloosa Island. To get there, you must drive by the quintessential older buildings on Bluefish Dr. and Barracuda Ave. Prepare to be surprised when you see the more modern Palm Court Yacht Club at the end of the street at 321 Bream Ave., directly on the Santa Rosa Sound.  I didn’t even know it was there, and neither did my clients, long time residents of Fort Walton Beach.My buyers purchased two units in this complex, which is a prize catch! All the condos in Palm Court Yacht Club have boat slips. They are of various sizes and locati...
