What is the most surprising real estate question/issue you have heard or handled? What was your solution?
I have had many difficult and funny closings over the years. One of the funniest I have had was an “island” in the Caloosahatchee River. It wasn’t so much an island as a sandbar. It was impossible to get title insurance because it was considered “bay bottom” and navigable waters. I tried desperately to convince the client not to buy the island, but he wanted it for a snack bar for boaters.
What advice do you have for anyone looking to buy or sell right now?
1. A good real estate agent can help you with all the details of a residential purchase or sale. He/she can keep you on the right track.
2. You need an attorney to handle the contract and legal issues.
What are some current trends/issues in the real estate world you find interesting?
Interest rates remain low, home prices continue to climb. In theory, this should allow people to get more house for their money, but inventory has stayed low so movement isn’t happening as quickly as it should.
