Key Facts Realtors Need to Know about Divorce and Selling or Buying Real Estate

key factors realtors need to know about divorce

Divorce is a major precedent in many real estate transactions. For better or for worse (no pun intended), divorces are as common as they have ever been in American history. Often when couples of a certain means divorce, this creates the need for two housing transactions, which in the plainest sense can be a boon for Realtors. However, the dissolution of a marriage is far from a positive in any sense of the word, and as Realtors we have to support these people as best we can without exploiting the vulnerabilities that they may be experiencing.

In addition, divorce adds many transactional challenges, emotional currents, and other struggles that the bifurcation of housing opportunities hardly makes up for. If you’re prepared to represent a recent divorcee or are a cog in an in-progress divorce, be ready for these and many potential roadblocks that lie ahead.

The Importance of a Home Inspection When Buying a Property in Boynton Beach

the importance of a home inspection

Are you looking into buying a slice of Boynton Beach Real Estate? Between the rigors of South Florida weather – heat, humidity, heavy rainfall, and the occasional hurricane, and the expensive and rising nature of the property, home buyers need to know everything they can before moving forward. This is where a home inspection comes in. A home inspection is a professional assessment of a property's condition, often conducted at the behest of the buyer. Here are a few reasons why having a professional inspection conducted by a reputable service can make all the difference in your home selection.

Detect Potential Hazards

First and most important are deficiencies that can lead to tragedies, such as structural defects, faulty circuitry, gas lines, and water damage. In a Boynton Beach home, residents can expect a greater exposure to moisture than most areas in the country, leaving the home susceptible to both observed and invisible water damage. Often A/C ducts, roof insulation, and even interior walls can be impacted by the damage.

The Do's And Don'ts of Buying Foreclosed Property | Boynton Beach Real Estate

the do's and don't of buying a foreclosed property

Foreclosed properties can often seem like a tempting option for those looking to invest in real estate in South Florida. Though we’ll likely never see an event as calamitous as the 2008 recession, savvy buyers are always looking for bank-seized properties and fixer-uppers. Foreclosed properties come with their baggage, but offer often substantially lower prices and thus, greater profit potential. However, the risks and challenges associated with foreclosures are something every Boynton Beach home buyer should be keeping in mind. While there’s no perfect formula for a standard real estate transaction, there are certainly plenty of do’s and don’ts that home buyers and Realtors should be aware of.

Do: Work with a Real Estate Agent Experienced in Foreclosed Properties

Buying a foreclosed property can be a rigorous and unique process, so it is important to work with a real estate agent who has experience in this area. Bonus points to any Realtor who served the people in 2008, when the mass of foreclosures completely tilted the market.  

Don't: Skip the Inspection

A foreclosed property doesn’t always equate to a “fixer upper” but even the prettiest Boynton Beach home foreclosure may have hidden risks and potential pitfalls. It may be that the previous owner was financially...

Boynton Beach Birdwatching | 5 Of The Rarest Native Birds To Look Out For

boynton beach birdwatching

Before it began its ascent as an artistic and cultural hotbed, Boynton Beach Real Estate was long renowned for its access to nature, both over the water and the grasslands. With a largely deciduous ecosystem that gives way to pine scrublands, brackish estuarine waters, and endless seas of grassy wetlands, the city of Boynton Beach is a preeminent destination for ornithologists and amateur birdwatchers. Despite the scale and ongoing development of the many new gated communities in West Boynton Beach, such as Valencia Isles, there are still numerously designated and undesignated wildlife habitats rife with beauty wherever you turn. For those of us keen on witnessing some of the rarest and most stunning birds in America, look no further than Boynton Beach - the Loxahatchee Reserve, Green Cay Wetlands, and so much more. These 5 birds are not all endangered, some aren't even too uncommon, but all represent a taste of the vibrancy, color, and natural beauty that inspires our communities that we share in tandem with nature.

The Owl Country Grille

We always feel good about a breakfast restaurant with the word "country" in its title. Yet, not every meal served up by this well-regarded breakfast and lunch locale is a decadent biscuits and gravy or cinnamon buns reminiscent of a deep South breakfast.

Boynton Beach Home Selling | Avoid These Common Home Staging Mistakes

avoid these common home staging mistakes

Home staging is a rudiment of going the extra mile to sell a home. It's important to disconnect the home buyer from either the space or the family room they're currently viewing. A tactful arrangement of furniture, artwork, and even the light and scent of the room play a drastic role in helping your home buyers visualize themselves occupying the space, rather than dealing with the conflict of the occupant's design contrasts, or an empty room that leaves too much to the imagination. However, there are plenty of ways to make common yet significant mistakes when home staging. Here is a short list of 5 common home staging mistakes you should avoid at your next open house!

too much furniture in home staging

Using Too Much Furniture

Well-positioned furniture is a staple of good home staging, but the temptation is there to do too much and try too hard. When staging furniture, remember that the idea is to give the home buyer a realistic idea of how to use the space, not overwhelm them with things to look at. Furniture is there to show the buyer's potential, rather than a finished room. The right blend of open space and thoughtfully placed furniture gives visitors the chance to see themselves in the space without feeling too oppressed by what's already there. This is similar to why neutral colors are suggested for paint, as it leaves the buyer with less to distract their eye and more time to think...

Clean And Organize Your Boynton Beach Garage | Boynton Beach Real Estate

tips to organize your boynton garage

A garage is a make-or-break arrangement for every homeowner. It seems like there is no middle ground here - just a bipolar expression of garage-togetherness. There is never a "nearly clean" or "almost tidy" garage, there is perfection without a single screw out of place, and an unmitigated floor-to-ceiling disaster. For our Boynton Beach homeowners, there's always something to do around town, and always a reason to work on projects from the garage. We put together a... *ahem*, tidy list of ways to get the most out of your garage and revolutionize what for many is their most untapped space in the home.

garage floorplan

Draft a Floorplan

You don't need to be a sketch artist or drafter to produce a cogent plan that brings immense organizational value to your garage project. This includes both vertical and horizontal planning - incorporating the walls, floors, and existing or new shelving to install. Knowing what and where you want to store your garage belongings is crucial to decide before lifting a finger. Items and areas outside the garage can also play a significant role in your project planning. A backyard shed, for example, could serve as a place to offload and store numerous garage-friendly objects. Lastly, decide if you want your garage to be a man cave or an open space, and prepare your home and driveway to park outside.
