Paradise in Southwest Florida Awaits You!

Have you ever thought that you might want to move to Florida?  If you have considered purchasing a new home, condominium, vacant lot or any other type of Florida real estate make sure you look into Southwest Florida.  The Florida Gulf Coast from Sarasota down to Punta Gorda is one of the best areas in FL to live.  If you enjoy big city living, then check out Jacksonville or Miami as they might be better suited to your tastes.  If you enjoy a more relaxed way of life, one that’s not spent in traffic jams or in hour long lines waiting to get into a restaurant, then the beautiful cities of Englewood, Port Charlotte, North Port and Venice are just the place.  The Gulf Coast of Florida offers nearly any amenity you can imagine, with a beautiful blue ocean and gorgeous white sandy beaches. There are many terrific areas to live here, and if you like fishing, boating, sunbathing, shopping, dining, entertainment, and endless things to do, then you have come to the right place.

The West coast of Fla is much less populated than the East coast.  There is less of the hustle and bustle here as well as a significantly lower crime rate.  This area is old Florida at its best.  The weather here is absolutely perfect, with the average daily high temperatures in the winter of 72 degrees and very little precipitation.  The summers are a little warm, usually in the upper 80’s every day, but the summer thunderstorms along with gentle gulf breezes keep these summertime temperatures more than tolerable.

Florida property values are much more reasonable on the West coast of Fla than on the Atlantic side.  The type and size of home that can be purchased here in Englewood FL or Port Charlotte FL will be much nicer than a comparable home in many areas on the East coast.  These prices have risen sharply over the last few years, but are still very low when compared to many other areas of Florida.  Recently due to pullback in the Florida Real Estate market, we have even seen a decline in Florida realty prices. With the coming arrival of the retiring baby boomers in the next few years and the current dip in prices the time to buy has rarely been better.  Act quickly, because is seems that the Englewood Florida Real Estate market and surrounding areas have recently been “discovered” and people are realizing what a true “Gem of the Suncoast” this place really is.  Give us a call today and find out how to get your very own piece of Port Charlotte Real Estate, Englewood FL Real Estate, North Port Real Estate or Venice FL Real Estate.

Foreclosures, Short Sales, and Auctions oh my!

The real estate market in Southwest Florida has gone through some big changes over the last five years.  Property values went from years of steady growth to an absolute mountain of increase which culminated in a market high sometime in late 2005.  Since this high water mark was reached in late 2005, we have seen a powerful retreat in pricing, possibly even more violent than the increases were.  As the prices fall in this dynamic and every changing real estate market place, a few new terms have come to light.  Bank owned, REO, real estate owned, BPO, foreclosure, short Sale, and absolute auctions are some of the new real estate buzzwords of today.
PROGRAM Realty, being a small and aggressive company, has decided to change with the times and welcome these new sales tools.   We offer programs for buyers and sellers to be able to take advantage of the current situation.

For Buyers:

PROGRAM Realty offers help in finding foreclosures, short sales, auctions, and bank owned properties (Sometimes referred as REO or Real Estate Owned.)  We know through experience how to negotiate directly with banks and mortgage companies to get our clients the absolute best deals possible.  We can get these types of transactions to close in a matter of days instead of months like many in the business would have you believe.  The truth of the matter is that many people are scared of what they don’t understand.  We understand short sales.  We understand foreclosures.  Don’t be scared; let us show you the way to a great deal.

For Sellers:

For clients that find themselves the victim of a poor market or predatory lender, we can offer a reprieve to avoid foreclosure.  We will help you negotiate with your lender to structure what has become known as a short sale.  Short sales are when a home is sold for an amount that is less than the mortgage payoff.  In many cases the bank involved will just write the shortage off instead of going through the costly process of foreclosure.  This short sale allows our clients to escape the situation that they are in and still not have a foreclosure on their credit report.
For banks, we offer full management programs to clear out your foreclosure inventory in a timely manner.  We can offer exposure for you properties like no other brokerage in Southwest Florida.

Times are changing and in order to survive real estate brokerages must adapt.  Please give us a call to find out what we can do for you today.  941-740-8000

PROGRAM Realty Goes Hollywood!

There are some exciting things happening around the office at PROGRAM Realty. This week Jason and Amanda Painter were approached by the producers of a television show for Home and Garden Television (HGTV) called “House Hunters.”  The show follows buyers and their real estate agents while going through the process of buying a home.  

The show works like this.  It starts off by filming the buyers in their current home.  The show then shows the meeting with the Realtors and the viewing of three perspective homes.  The buyer chooses a home to purchase, then is followed up with after the closing has taken place and the new owners have moved in.

The shows that Amanda and Jason were picked for is for Gulf Front homes and Million Dollar homes.  If you are currently in the market for either of these types of homes in the Southwest Florida area and feel comfortable with being in front of a camera, then give us a call.  If the producers like what they see you could be on the next addition of House Hunters!

PROGRAM Realty is your go to source for Venice Florida real estate , Englewood Florida real estate, and Punta Gorda Florida real estate.   If you are looking for Sarasota homes for sale try our affiliate in Sarasota, Marc Rasmussen.

Sneaky Fees on your Closing Statement!

I have experienced a few surprises at the closing table recently and I thought I might blog about it here on this website.  It seems that a new trend in real estate is hidden fees at closing.  

Usually for a new home there is a commission of 6-7% that is usually split between the buying agent and the selling agent.  This commission is evidently not enough for some unscrupulous real estate companies as they have decided to charge their customers an extra $250 to $400 “Documentation Fee” or “Transaction Fee.”  This fee will show up whether you are buying or selling with these agencies, and if you use that same agent to both buy and sell your property, you can get hit with the fee twice!

When asked to explain this new fee, your agent will normally tell you it is for preparation and storage of your closing documents.  If this is the case, what is the rest of the commission for?  On an average 250k dollar home the commission before splits can be as high as $17,500.00.  Is this not enough money to prepare and store your documents?  You would think that surely they could pay their document storage fee out of this commission.  How much does it cost to store a folder of paper nowadays?
