So Christmas in Florida is not like Christmas in the North. We don’t get that cold, and we don’t get any snow. But we have great skies and beautiful Palm Trees. This year we purchase a new Snowman, it’s 12ft high, and it looks just perfect in front of my palm tree here. What do you think? This is Christmas Florida style.
How do you decorate for the holidays here?
To be honest, its hard to really say how long it can take. I have seen short sales last 30 days and others for over a year. It really depends on the bank the lender is with, and who is handling the file. When you are using a CDPE REALTOR (Certified Distress Property Expert), they handle their own files. They will be on top of it, calling and checking on status. If a third-party is handling it and the many others that agents send, they can not call as often. Now I am not saying short sales handled by them or not handled properly, I just see that they take much longer.
Time frames can vary also based on the Listing price. If the home is listed at a fair market value, based on the most recent sales, then you can generally see the home being shown quite frequently. After that when an offer is made, at that point all papers are sent to the lender. At some point the bank will send someone out to value the house, this step usually can take up to 3 weeks. Once the value is in, they will compare it to the offer that was made and will either deny or approve it. If we have an approval, the buyer at that point will have 30 days to close on the home.
Based on the steps above, your average time it takes to sell a Short Sale listing is in and around 60 to 90 days, from beginning to end. Now remember I said AVERAGE….

You read right…Tax – Free week for 2012 is right around the corner August 3 – 5, 2012. The 2012-2013 school season is coming and now with having to buy school supplies this is perfect timing.
Now how it works when you are going shopping when you buy:
- clothing anything under $75 is tax free
- Footwear under $75 is tax free
- School supplies under $15 is tax free
I will be using this time to buy my kids their clothes and the supplies for my boys. I did my daughters back to school supplies at staples who at the time had some great deals as well.
Good luck and find yourself some great deals out there…..
What to do with the kids for the summer? How about the Aquatic Center here in Tamarac? They have a great water section and playground for the kids. I can tell you my kids look forward to going there all the time.
They sell annual passes, if you are looking to buy them instead of purchasing them as you go for adults $73, and kids are $53.
