There’s something to be said for staying organized, regardless of whether we’re talking about your busy schedule or keeping things in order throughout your home. Much like how staying organized in your work life or social life can save you time, effort, and a whole lot of headaches, keeping your cupboards and food storage areas clean and organized can also make cooking a meal much less stressful, and do we dare even say…fun?

As you probably already know, however, keeping a pantry organized is much easier said than done, especially given items are constantly coming and going. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn't at least try to have a set of systems down that will help keep things in order and perhaps save a little space along the way as well.

Numbers are in for 2017 real estate sales, and we continue to see some challenges for buyers, especially first-time and entry level buyers. Constrained inventories in the lower price ranges are often producing multiple offers, and buyers with finance contingencies are losing out to cash buyers in many cases. In fact, 46% of closed sales in the Boca Raton real estate market had no financing at all.

A Look at the Numbers

2017 Market Update

Boosting Your Home's Curb Appeal As a prospective home seller or perhaps someone who has plenty of experience selling homes in the past, you hear it all the time—curb appeal matters. It goes without saying that first impressions can make or break any potential deal, regardless of whether it’s for a job interview or first date, or attracting somebody to possibly buy your home or condo.

But what exactly is “curb appeal” in today’s digital world, and how much does it impact home sellers? Well, just like well before the days of the internet, it’s still a vital part of generating interest and getting people through the door. After all, if you can’t grab someone’s attention from the exterior photos of your home, chances are they won’t bother clicking through to the interior photos.

So before…

Do You need an attorney when buying or selling a property in Florida? This is a question that we receive frequently in our real estate practice at our Boca Raton real estate brokerage. The answer is both yes and no. It is not required but you do need one.
Unlike many states, Florida law does not require you to involve a lawyer in closing a real estate transaction. Real estate agents are trained to complete contracts (i.e. fill in the blanks) which are prepared by the Florida Bar in conjunction with the Florida Association of Realtors. Regardless of the experience or expertise of your Realtor, most are not attorneys. In my opinion, you do need an attorney to represent your interests as well as to protect you should problems arise. There are many potential…
