The Power Of St. Joseph

Posted by fortlauderdalebeachrealestate on February 11, 2009

I wanted to share this great story with everyone.  It has long been said that burying a St. Joseph statue in your yard is supposed to help you sell your home.  One of my sellers listed his condo for sale on July 2, 2008.  Despite numerous showings since then, we hadn’t had any success selling his unit.  Someone told him the story about St. Joseph and he purchased one at a religious shop on January 14th.  He was at home opening up the package and was about halfway through reading the prayer that is included when there was a knock on the door, an unexpected showing with a buyer from out of state.  Well long story short, 16 days later we received a cash offer, fully executed on the 4th of February and scheduled to close 23 days later on February 27th!  What a great story-if you are local there is a store named Moroney’s located at 535 NE 13th Street in Fort Lauderdale.  Please share this with you family and friends, could be the best $7.95 any seller could spend in todays market-

More Tax Reform Information

Posted by fortlauderdalebeachrealestate on August 18, 2007

During the June 2007 Special Legislative Session on Tax Reform, the Legislature required local governments to roll back millage rates to 2006-07 revenue levels, and enact an additional rollback of up to 9% based upon a particular local government’s 5-year history of cutting taxes.  

In addition, the Legislature approved for an amendment to appear on the January 29 ballot enacting a “Super Homestead Exemption.”  If approved by the voters, homeowners will be allowed to opt out of the current “Save Our Homes” cap and $25,000 exemption and opt into a new 2-tiered exemption.  Tier 1 will exempt 75% of the first $200,000 of assessed value.  Tier 2 will exempt 15% of the next $300,000 of assessed value.There are many other details completing this plan.  Click or cut and paste the following link for complete details about the reforms passed by the Legislature, some of which still require voter approval.  http://www.floridarealtors.org/LegislativeCenter/TopInitiatives/upload/HGS_property_reform.pdf

Smooth Move

Posted by fortlauderdalebeachrealestate on May 19, 2007

Finding a mover can be stressful.  I suggest before hiring a moving company you check out www.protectyourmove.gov, which is run by the Federal Motor Carrier Administration.  The website features a moving checklist, tips on spotting “rogue” movers and resources to check a company’s registration with the U.S. Department of Transportation.
