Buying in Coral Springs Florida
Steps to Home Ownership! Search Coral Springs Real Estate
Some 6 million new and existing homes are sold each year. There’s no shortage of housing options, but with so many choices the challenge becomes finding the property which best meets your needs.
The housing market is complicated because the inventory of homes for sale is always in flux. If it were possible to have a complete list of every home for sale at this very moment in a given community, such a list would become obsolete within seconds as new homes become available and properties now for sale are put under contract.
In effect, buyers are looking at a moving target in a marketplace that is never static. Because of this, it is important to know as much as possible about the choices in preferred markets, and the way to do that is by working closely with a local REALTOR® who has a good “lay of the land.”
A home is more than just a collection of bedrooms and bathrooms. Several properties — each with four bedrooms, three baths, and the same price — may well represent radically different designs, commuting distances, lot sizes, tax costs, interior dimensions, and exterior finishes.
Each of us is different and so it’s important to list the features and benefits you want in a home. Consider such things as pricing, location, size, amenities (extras such as a pool or extra-large kitchen) and design (one floor or two, colonial or modern, etc.).
Next, it’s important to consider your priorities. If you can’t get a home at your price with all the features you want, then what features are most important? For instance, would you trade fewer bedrooms for a larger kitchen? A longer commute for a bigger lot and lower cost?
Lastly, consider your needs in several years. If you’ll need a larger home, maybe now is the time to buy a bigger house rather than moving or expanding in the future. If you expect your income to increase, perhaps you should consider a more expensive home financed with a loan program where monthly payments increase in the future.
Where should you look?
All neighborhoods and communities have a special nature that gives them identity and value. One community may be well known for historic homes while another offers both suburban living as well as easy access to downtown office areas and others for schools and kids like the city of Coral Springs Florida.
How do you find a house?
Some buyers like to search the web. – use our search engine its free, by looking at listings on the basis of location or price; others prefer to have local REALTORS® suggest properties; and many buyers prefer both approaches.
Regardless of your choice, it’s important to target your search. By using basic measures such as general location and affordability, you can refine your search and focus on homes that offer the most desirable features.

What is a short sale? Very simply, a short sale is when a buyer purchases your home and negotiates with your Banks to take LESS than what you owe them. The Banks accept this short payment as “Paid in Full” and that is how the loans will look on your credit report after closing. The foreclosure proceedings stop and you will normally not owe the Banks any money at all after the house is sold. Your credit report will not show the scarlet letter of a foreclosure which can ruin your financial situation for the next 10 years! By almost any measure a completed foreclosure is the most damaging event your credit status can incur – worse than a bankruptcy. A foreclosure on your credit record will negatively impact your ability to borrow money or even rent a house for years.
The key is in knowing HOW to convince the Banks this is a smart business decision.
We have created a Team of experts to help you through the process so that the short sale can be accomplished in the least amount of time, with the least discomfort to you. We have accomplished this without adding additional costs to the seller or buyer. The following are what our team will do for both buyers and sellers to facilitate this process.
