Choosing a Brevard County Real Estate Agent.

OPs is a term I heard years ago referring to the cigarette brand some cheapskates smoked – OPs - other people's.

These were the guys who never had their own but was quick to ask for one from you.

I quit smoking years ago.

As a real estate agent in Viera, Florida when I go to work for you, either as someone selling a Viera home or buying a Viera home, I can’t discuss your circumstances, strategies or plans with anyone else.

Real estate agents have a duty to their clients. 

If your home is on the market and your neighbor asks what is going on my response will be simple.  Ask yourself because I can’t talk about OPB…other people’s business!

As a single agent representing you I owe you confidentiality.  I owe you loyalty.  I have a fiduciary responsibility to you.

And these, as well as other obligations, I take very seriously.

Considering selling your Viera Florida home?   Call me at 321-693-3850 or email me for a free market analysis.

Florida Home Prices – There is a very real reason for the low list price.

Here are the cold hard facts about the really really low priced Florida home.

If the listing price is extremely under market price, the investment money required to get it in shape may be higher than the cost of the house.
The secret is even the most generous sellers do not give away homes for pennies on the dollar.
  1. Sometimes the value is in the land.
  2. Sometimes the value is in the potential the structure or land holds.

Investors may indeed be purchasing homes (or what is left of one) for pennies on the dollar when non-investors would not buy the same property.

The reason – investors know what they are doing.  The value may be in the land or, more specifically, the potential value of the structure or location.

Not too many years ago novice investors got caught up in the real estate market only to end up losing it all.

As a buyer sometimes the greatest value is in knowing it is time to move on and look at something else!

When you are ready to buy or sell real estate in Brevard County, Florida, call or email me.
