Melbourne is Centrally Located to Five Cruise Ship Ports

We’re so fortunate here in Melbourne on Florida’s Space Coast.  We are within 3 hours of five different ports to head out on a cruise ship.  Port Canaveral is practically in our backyard, just 30 minutes away.

For the past 7 years we have taken a Caribbean Cruise out of four of these ports.  We’ve haven’t travelled out of Jacksonville yet.  We’ve enjoyed visiting some incredible destinations including … Cozumel Mexico, Roatan Honduras, Nassau Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Belize, Virgin Islands, St. Martin and Puerto Rico just to name a few.  My favorite destination so far has to be Cozumel Mexico.

How Old is Your Business Card Picture?

Today, in real estate it seems that all of the advertising we do has our picture on it. Get

How Old is Your Business Card Picture?

How Old is Your Business Card Picture?

to know our faces by seeing our picture. In time, the customer will begin to feel comfortable with us.  After all, don’t we want people to recognize us, and put a face with a name by looking at our pictures? Isn’t that part of our branding when we advertise? We look at websites and blogs and house listings and agent flyers and business cards with Realtor pictures all day long. We want people to grow accustomed to seeing our warm, smiling, familiar faces.

But, have you ever, finally met a Realtor, after talking to them on the phone or seeing their print advertising for months, and wondered who the person standing in front of you was?  The first thought might be, is this the same person in the pictures?

Well, guess what, this happened to me.  But, I was actually meeting a very old friend that was moving back to the area, and I was the Realtor!  My friend is a bit of a smart butt anyway. He’s always throwing out a funny one liner, always good for a laugh. We hugged, exchanged hellos and as always, I reached out and handed him two of my business cards, one to keep and one to give to a friend.  He did a double take when he looked at the card.  Here it comes, I thought.  “How old were you in this picture?” he asked. 

“What do you mean, how old was I?” I asked.

“You look like you’re 16 years old in this picture,” he said.  I didn’t know if I should take that as a compliment or an insult.

“Do I really look that different?” I asked.

“Well, it’s not really your face that is that different, but your hair is a lot lighter now. ”  True, I thought. Covering that gray hair can be quite the challenge these days.  I had to think about it for a moment.  I realized the picture had been taken about 6 years prior. Wow, how time flies.

I have since changed the picture on my business card a couple of different times. I try my best to keep it up to date, since I am always ordering cards.

But, when I reach a certain age, I may have to stop updating the picture on my cards.

How Many Licks Does it Take to Get to the Tootsie Roll Center?

How Many Licks Does it Take to Get to the Tootsie Roll Center?

Do you remember the Tootsie Roll Pop commercial from television? The little boy asks Mr. Turtle, “Mr. Turtle, how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop?”  Mr. Turtle says, “I don’t know, ask Mr. Owl.”  The boy takes the tootsie pop to Mr. Owl and asks the same thing. Mr. Owl takes 3 licks and then bites the lollipop. He tells the boy it takes 3 licks to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop.

It reminds me of homebuyers looking at real estate...some people buy the first day they’re out looking at houses, some people take their time, and some never buy at all.

A buyer tells us they are looking for a house to buy. We show them several houses and the first day out they write an offer and buy a house. They’re like Mr. Owl. They do it quickly.

In our current market today some buyers are ready, like Mr. Owl to get to the tootsie roll center and buy that house, however our inventory in many areas is drastically down.  So, there is a shortage of good, clean, affordable properties for sale.

Then, there are buyers that take their time. We look at houses with them and months go by.  They do all their homework and they do it again. We call them.  They’re in no hurry. They eventually call us back and they want to look at more houses. They do eventually buy. They are the ones that savor every lick of the lollipop, until they finally get to the tootsie roll center. 

Some never buy. They’ve got a lot of time to look. They find ways of talking themselves out of buying each house they see, for one reason or another. They talk to friends, and more confusing the decision becomes. Perhaps, they’re not ready to buy. They spend months looking at houses.  They just can’t seem to take the plunge or get off the fence. They’re like Mr. Turtle, they don’t know how long it takes to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop.

So, how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop?

The Property Becomes the Buyer’s on Closing Day

The Property Becomes the Buyer's on Closing Date

The Property Becomes the Buyer’s on Closing Date

When purchasing a house, here in Florida, typically, on the day of closing, the buyer and the seller sign their closing documents.   Sometimes the buyer and the seller sign their documents separately, at a different closing table, at different times, depending on scheduling and the complexities of the transaction. It takes the buyer longer to get through his documents, especially if he is getting a mortgage. (If the closing is a mail away, the buyer and seller may sign a day or two ahead of time.)

Customarily, the buyer does a walk through on the property before heading to closing, to be sure that the house is in the same condition that it was when he last saw it. He should be sure that all the appliances, fixtures and any extra items written into the contract are left with the house. And, he should be sure all of the seller’s belongings have been removed from the property.

The walk through is also the time that the buyer should double check to be sure that all of the repairs that had been agreed to on the contract, have been completed.

By the time the buyer and seller sign their documents, the seller should have all of his belongings out of the property, with no expection of returning to the house. The seller must be prepared to hand the keys over to the new buyer once the documents are signed, as the buyer takes possession of the home on closing day.

But, what happens when a seller hasn’t gotten all of his belongings out of the property prior to signing? Well, it can turn into a bit of a precarious situation for both parties. Technically, when the buyer and seller sign the closing documents, the house becomes the property of the buyer. And, if items are left behind, they can also become the property of the new buyer.

I have heard that in some parts of the country the seller has time after settlement/closing day, when papers are signed, to get their belongings out of the house before turning over the house and the keys to the buyer. Is this true?
