Graduation Season – Let us help!

 

Good Afternoon All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! As I’m sure most of you know, the school year is winding down to an end! Students are ready and excited to spend their summer break outside in the Florida sunshine!  What this also means for some is that Graduation season is upon us! It’s a time a celebrate your graduate and all of their education accomplishments since entering school. 

Are you using your home to host a graduation party? It’s a great time to have friends and family over to celebrate such a special occasion! What this also means is that you’re probably getting a little stressed about the planning and preparation involved. Use these simple steps to help guide you through the week ahead of your celebration. 

Day 1 – Plan! Get a plan together for your graduation party. What home projects need to be completed? Organize cleaning?  How many people will you have? What will you do food? Theme? etc. 

Day 2 – Brighten Up Windows and Entryway – Get out the soap and water and clean your windows. This will brighten up your home. For your entry way declutter as much as possible. Put away coats, hats or anything that would make the space cluttered. 

Day 3 – Bathrooms – Clean your bathrooms! Freshen up and make sure this space is ready for your guest. Put away used towels and make sure bathroom is stocked with soaps, etc. 

Day 4 – Guest Area – Make sure your living areas are ready for guest! Dust these rooms and put away anything that may clutter up space for guest (shoes, blankets, mail, etc.) 

Day 5 – Knock out the Kitchen! – This is the room that is used the most, where guest gather and it typically is the room in the home that gets the most abuse. Make sure all appliances are in working order for preparing food. Make sure any dirty dishes are cleaned and put away. Mop floors and clean surface areas. 

Day 6 – Decorate – Now is the time to hang banners, create photo collages, put out balloons and all the fun decorations to celebrate your graduate! 

Day 7 – Touch Up – Do a final walk through of your home and the areas you plan on entertaining in. Make sure everything is tidy and ready for your guest! It’s time to party! 

Rountree Realty wants to congratulate the Class of 2018!  We’re very proud of you and we wish you the best with the next chapter of your life!

Today’s Real Estate Topic-Flood Zones & Insurance

 

Good Afternoon All, 

I hope everyone is having a great day! Today, I wanted to discuss flood zones, insurance and why it’s so important to have coverage and do your research. 

Homeowners

-Do you have flood insurance coverage on your property?

-Are you aware that flood zones can change at any time? 

-If you aren’t sure, here is a link to check the flood zone. >>> http://bit.ly/FloodZoneCheck

 

Home Buyers 

-The #1 thing you can do while purchasing a property is to make sure you’re protected. DO YOUR RESEARCH! I cannot tell you how many Realtors do not check permits, foundation issues, flood zones, etc. for their buyers. 

-Like most people, you really aren’t familiar with this process and know how to do this. Make sure you ask your Realtor questions. Don’t be afraid to address potential issues. It’s better to ask before purchasing, then to close on a property and then find out. 

-Of course, flood zones change with time, so use this link to keep checking your property.      >>> http://bit.ly/FloodZoneCheck

-Link to check permits in Marion County >>> http://bit.ly/MarionCountyPermitSearch

-For more information check out this article that Florida Realtors Association posted >>> http://bit.ly/FloodZonesandInsurance

Today’s Real Estate Topic – Sellers Property Disclosure

 

Good Afternoon All, 

I hope your day is off to a great start! After the past couple of days of non-stop rain, I’m sure everyone is ready to enjoy this sunny Florida weather! 

Today, I wanted to talk about the Sellers Property Disclosure form that you may have heard of. At first I thought that was more a topic of discussion for property owners or sellers, but really buyers need to know this topic for when they go to purchase a home. 

Do you think a Sellers Property Disclosure is required in the state of Florida? Meaning, do you think a seller has to provide a property disclosure to a potential buyer? This answer may shock you, but a sellers property disclosure is NOT required in the state of Florida. I will say this though, as Realtors and Real Estate Brokers, we try to do everything we can to protect all parties involved. I know when I’m representing a seller, I strongly encourage them to complete a Sellers Property Disclosure. Also, when I’m working with a buyer and I feel we’re getting to the point where an offer maybe submitted, I also ask the sellers Realtor for a property disclosure. 

Please keep in mind even though a seller is not legally required to complete a Sellers Property Disclosure, a homeowner does have to disclosure facts about the property that would affect the property value. (sinkhole activity, encroachments, systems not working, etc.) 

For more information and insight on Sellers Property Disclosures, please feel free to check out this article that Florida Realtors posted on their website. >>> http://bit.ly/FloridaRealtorsPropertyDisclosure

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to email me at Info@Search352Homes.com or Call/Text (352) 577-9171
