Florida Foreclosures For Sale

Foreclosed Mansions 1 Mil+

WILL YOU SEND US ADDITIONAL PHOTOS OF THE PROPERTIES THAT INTEREST US?

 Of course.  After you have “proofed”……….

Some of the property details you receive will have numerous photos attached and some may only have one. In most cases we are NOT the agent for the Sellers and have no control over what information they may or may not make available. 

Due to the tremendous interest in these Florida foreclosures we do not go out and take additional photos unless the Buyer has “proofed”. What this means is we need to see proof of funds prior to sending our photographer out to take additional photos. This proof of funds can be either a bank statement or letter of credit from your banker. The account balance MUST be stated in USD. 

When buying foreclosures, ALL Sellers (banks) will require proof of funds before they will consider an offer, so it makes sense to go ahead and get this requirement out of the way now. 

Part of my job as your Broker is to make sure you are in position to act quickly and smoothly once you see the right deal. The best deals will sell fast so it is important to be ready. 

Mortgages are available for properties over $150,000 (USD) and with a minimum of 40% down. If this is something you want to check into just let me know and I will connect you with one of our preferred Lenders. However, it is far easier to procure financing in your country and pay cash over here. 

Once we get the money side of things sorted out we will be happy to assist you in anyway that we can. Here is some additional information about purchasing foreclosures that will help.

Broker Bryant’s New Buyer Lead Generation Project

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Hi there fellow Rainers, here’s my Growth Leader update. Hey wait a minute…I wasn’t invited to test out Growth Leader. That’s OK. Let me just change the name of my update to……Broker Bryant’s New Buyer Lead Generation Project.

I’ve been reading all of the reports about Growth Leader so thought I would give you something to compare it to. First, I do not use PPC (pay per click). Secondly, I don’t have any exclusive zip codes and I don’t have a fancy landing page.

What I do have are three very strategically placed property ads on the Internet. I started this program on December the 27th.

Since then I have:

  • Received 342 Buyer enquiries of which 136 have registered for and are receiving auto property updates.

 

  • I have active communications going with 30 of them. By active I mean multiple contacts about specific properties.

 

  • I have presented 7 offers of which 4 have been accepted and are closing this month. All are cash deals.

 

  • One Buyer I actually met and only two have I ever spoken with. All others are strictly by email.

 

My goal is to sell 2-4 properties a week without ever getting out of my jammies!!!

Not bad for a guy that 6 months ago didn’t work with Buyers! So let me know how that Growth Leader thingie works out for you!!!

If you are a REALTOR® in Central Florida and are ready to step into the World of Internet Real Estate business PLEASE give me a call. OK that’s it for now.

Free Teleconference on "The Art Of Preparing The Persuasive CMA"

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Sell with Soul! Jennifer AllanOK folks. This Saturday is a HUGE day for me. I am participating in my very first teleconference webinar thingie ma giggy!!! My friend Jennifer Allan the author of Sell with Soul sent me an email a few weeks ago and invited me to be a participant. She is soooooooo good looking (just like me) so how could I possibly say no? I couldn’t.

I have to say I’m a little nervous. I have 15 to 20 minutes to talk about preparing a persuasive CMA. Heck….it doesn’t even take me that long to prepare one!!! BUT……I think I have managed to come up with some ideas that may help you in persuading your potential seller to not only list with you but to price their property correctly. Anyway………here are the details provided by Jennifer.

Join us on Saturday, February 7th at 8:30 am (Pacific) / 11:30 am (Eastern) for a teleconference panel discussion with me, Broker Bryant Tutas, Borino & Katerina Gasset – four very different personalities, four very different approaches to the Art of the CMA. Each of will have 15-20 minutes to spill our beans, and then take questions from the audience. We expect the conference will last 90 minutes or so.

The cost? It’s FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Actually, we’ll be giving away some cool prizes, so you might actually come away from the show a little bit richer! And certainly wiser…

How does it work? You have to register, and once you do, you’ll get the details on how to tune-in to the conference.  You can listen online or over the phone line.

Hope to see you there!!!

Desperation Creates Depreciation!!!

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Call me 407-873-2747Once I had a Seller. This poor guy had his house on the market for 7 months with another Realtor and only had 3 showings during that period. Well, fortunately for him, he listed his property with me when his listing expired. As usual I gave him the talk about leaving the house for showings. It really is simple, REALTOR(R) knocks on the door, Seller opens and says “hi” and then takes the dog for a walk around the block. What could be easier.

Anyway, I phoned him on a Monday afternoon to let him know he had his first showing coming by in about an hour. “Hi, Mr. Desperate, this is Broker Bryant. A REALTOR(R) is bringing some Buyers by in about an hour. Don’t forget, cut on all the lights and when they show up, take the dog for a walk around the block. By the time you get back, they will be done.”

He says, full of excitement, “Wow, Broker Bryant, I can’t believe you have people looking at my house already. I’ll be ready” So all is well.

I call Mr. Desperate the following day to make sure the REALTOR(R) showed up and he says, “Oh yes! They really seemed to like the house. WHILE I WAS SHOWING THEM AROUND they were asking questions about the utility bills and schools. They were here about 45 minutes.” Ok, now being the good little Realtor that I am, I chose to ignore his comment about showing them around and said, “Great, sounds like it was a good showing. I will contact their REALTOR(R) and see what they thought of the house.”

I call the Realtor, “Hi, SellmyListing, just checking to see how the showing went yesterday at my listing at 4321 Depreciation Ave.”

He started laughing! I’m not kidding, he was laughing. Then he said, “Broker Bryant, what is wrong with that Seller? He would not leave us alone. He followed us from room to room and would not be quiet. I finally gave up and just let him give the Buyers the tour. We had to see every inch of his house and listen to him tell us how we will never find another house as nice as his and blah blah blah.”

In shock, I asked “Well that sounds like fun. Did the Buyers like the house?”

His response was, “Broker Bryant, my Buyers were scared of this man, they actually did like the house but told me they would never buy a house from this guy. They said he was too desperate and there must be something wrong with the house, or neighborhood, that is making him act that way. If he had not been there, we would be writing you an offer on the house.”

Ok, SellmyListing, I really am sorry that happened to you and your Buyers. My Sellers know they are supposed to leave. Listen if you want to bring them back or any other Buyers through, I will make sure Mr. Desperate leaves. I am going to call him right now to reiterate this with him. Again, I really appreciate you showing my listing and sorry that happened.”

SellmyListing responded, “Don’t worry Broker Bryant, I know it’s not your fault, I have sold several of your listings in the past and know that you’re a true professional, in fact, you are the best Broker I have ever worked with.” Ok, Ok maybe he didn’t say EXACTLY that. But is was close. Maybe.

Anyway, I called Mr. Desperate back and gave him the news. He seemed to be a little shocked that he blew a possible deal out of the water but did, hopefully, learn his lesson. I made him promise to not do that again or I am coming over, getting my sign and going home. “No, no Broker Bryant, I promise to listen to you from now on.”

“No problem, Mr. Desperate, you are paying me a lot of money to get your home sold, so I am always going to be honest with you whether you like it or not. Deal?”

“Yes, I’m sorry, Broker Bryant.”

So the moral of the story is: Desperation creates depreciation! What say you?

Don’t Sell Yourself Short
A GUIDE TO SUCCEEDING AT SHORT SALES
An E-Book
By Broker Bryant

Introduction

“Short Sale”. The new buzz word. We’ve all heard it:

 “I owe more than my house is worth and I WANT to move. I’ll just ask the lender for a Short Sale.”

 “I don’t want to live here anymore. I need to do a Short Sale.”

“I want to take a new job up north but I just bought my house last year. I need to do a Short Sale.”

“I’m tired of making these payments and want something smaller. I need to do a Short Sale.”

 “I quit making payments because my lender said once I was behind 60 days I could do a Short Sale.”

 I NEED………blah, blah, blah!!!!!

Folks did you notice all the “I’s” in these statements? These folks have an entitlement attitude. They believe they are owed a Short Sale. Personally I pass on these types of listings. Completing a Short Sale is very time consuming. I want to make sure that the folks I decide to help have a legitimate hardship.

A Short Sale is for folks that are experiencing financial difficulties and who can no longer afford to keep their house. It is NOT for someone who just feels like moving. Now having said that, these folks may very well apply for a Short Sale and it may be granted BUT if you are going to be making your living handling Short Sales you should work with Sellers that give you the highest possibility of getting the “short” approved. Having a legitimate hardship is very important to this process.

Hopefully, after reading this book, you will be in a better position to pick who to help. You will know how the process works and you will get paid for helping people out of a difficult situation.

The first thing you have to understand is that Short Sales are here to stay. For the next five years or so they will be a major part of the real estate market. If you are in a market like mine, Poinciana FL, Short Sales could very well be your ONLY business.

So you have to learn how to do them. And you have to learn how to do them right. Just the fact that you purchased this book shows me that you have the desire to learn.

OK, so first, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am NOT a short sale guru. I’m a full time working REALTOR®. I’ve been licensed for 14 years and have had my Broker’s license for 10 years. By choice, I pretty much work by myself and from my home. I work in a blue collar area of very inexpensive homes and average 37 closings a year. In my best year I sold 67 properties and in my worst I sold 17. I’m just an average Joe…..a blue collar Broker.

In 2007 my market took a drastic turn. Values started rapidly declining and foreclosures started increasing. I was primarily a listing Broker and it was getting very difficult to find home owners who were not upside down on their mortgages. I convinced myself that this was temporary and I could just wait for things to get back to “normal”. I was in denial.

I figured I would just have to work harder to find sellers with equity. I would avoid dealing with Short Sales at all costs. They…..“weren’t worth my time”, “never closed”, “wouldn’t let me get paid a commissions”, “were misleading to buyers”. I was ignorant.

Due to my denial and ignorance my business started going down hill quickly. Closings were far and few between and prices were still declining. My future looked bleak. Something had to change. Sound familiar?

That something was me. I decided to embrace the market. If all the market would give me was Short Sales then I needed to learn how to do them and I needed to learn how to do them quickly. This book teaches you what I have learned thus far.

This book is by no means a comprehensive course on how to complete Short Sales.  BUT…..it will show you what works for me. It will without a doubt make you better at listing and closing short sales. It will help you build the confidence needed to jump into the Short Sale game. So go for it. Don’t sell yourself short.

To be continued………………….

Coming in late February March**** Broker Bryant’s  E-Book, “Don’t Sell Yourself Short”, will be available to help you succeed in this more difficult market. 

OK Broker Bryant, how much is this E-Book going to cost me? Well that’s a darn good question. Let me ask you this…If I could help you make 10,000s of dollars over the next 12 months how much would it be worth to you? $500? $299? $199? Well how about………$47? That’s right folks $47. For this low price you will receive:

  • My E-Book “Don’t Sell Yourself Short” 
  • Complete short sale listing package
  • Weekly newsletter (12 months)

You can reserve your copy of “Don’t Sell Yourself Short” right now! Just send me an email at BrokerBryant@gmail.com and  put   “Short Sale E-Book” in the subject line. Once the book is launched I will send you payment instructions. Once paid……BAM!…..the book and listing package will be in your inbox and your journey towards helping folks with their Short Sales will begin.

****Folks I am so sorry for the delay in getting this book finished but I have been extremely busy. I don’t want to release a product that is not up to my standards. If you have any questions on short sales please feel free to pop me an email at brokerbryant@gmail.com and I will see what I can do to help. If you need personalized help, training or coaching let me know.  I do offer these services for a fee. Just pay for what you need. You can call me for a confidential consulatation at 407-873-2747.

 Commentary from Bryant Tutas
Broker/Owner
Tutas Towne Realty, Inc
 

I broke this analysis down to month by month in order to give you a true picture of what is going on in Poinciana Fl. Yearly averages will not work in a declining market. As you can see, the market in Poinciana is in dire straights. Properties ARE selling. In fact sales are increasing but…… 

There were 672 sales in 2008 compared with 420 in 2007. That’s an increase of 38%. However, 519 of these closings, for 2008, were distressed sales(either bank owned REOs or short sales). That’s 77%!!! 

There are currently 1,051 active listings (single family homes) in the Poinciana neighborhoods. This time last year there were 1,065. Not much movement there. 

The last 4 months we have averaged 87 closings. Using that figure there is currently 12.5 months of inventory on the market. That’s pretty good since last year this time there were 25 months of inventory. Prices are low enough that properties ARE selling. 

I find it incredible that the median price for homes sold in January of 2007 was $225,000 and 24 months later it’s $82,900. That just boggles my mind. What’s even worse is that the median price for houses that are under contract (pending) is $79,900. That means that prices are still declining. 

What can you buy in Poinciana Florida for $79,900 today?

 Cheap florida foreclosures 407-873-2747

 

How about this 2113 sq ft banked owned property with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths built in 2006?

 

Cheap florida foreclosure 407-873-2747

 

Or this 2093 sq ft REO with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths built in 2003?

 

 

If these won’t work there are 308 more properties for less than $80,000. 

Folks, this about sums it up. 2009 is going to be quite the ride. Foreclosures are going to increase and values are going to continue to decline. Unless you absolutely need to sell you property DON”T!!! If you must sell….call me. 

If you are a buyer, you need to be buying. Prices are awesome and rates are low. If you are waiting on the bottom you may very well miss it. The only way we will know we have hit bottom is when it is in our rear view mirror. 

So there you have it…. Broker Bryant’s year end market report for Poinciana Florida. I showed you mine will you show me yours?

10 Things, From Broker Bryant, To Help you in Your Business!

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Florida Real Estate Broker 407-873-2747Hi folks. Here are 10 things you can do that may help you in your business.

1. Use Google Docs (forms) to capture leads.

2. Set up a Google Calendar for all of your listings and invite your sellers to “share”.  Every time you take an action with their listings enter it on the calendar and the seller will get an email.

3. Set your Sellers up with auto property searches through your MLS. Anytime a property is listed or sold that is similar to theirs they will get an auto update.  

4. Place all of the photos for your listing in a “Picasa Web Album”. Invite the Seller to share this album so they have pictures to send to their friends.

5. Use feedburner to subscribe to your own blog. When your new article comes through your email looking all purdy use it as an E-newsletter and blast it out to your data base. 

6. Write long winded email responses and then use them as blog posts 🙂 

7. Tell all of your competitors that short sales suck. Then list as many short sales as you can.

8. Only work with online buyers that are willing to buy sight unseen. Send all others to C-21.

9. Have a library of email templates so you don’t have to write the same responses over an over again.  

10. Stay away from Twitter!!!

Ok that’s it for now. I just bet a couple of these things will make you more productive. What say you?

Foreign Investors Buying Foreclosures in Florida.

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Florida Real Estate Broker 407-873-2747Purchasing a property over here is pretty straight forward. When you see something you like I prepare a 5 page written purchase offer with the price and terms you want to offer. This is presented to the sellers agent with proof of your ability to purchase i.e. bank statements, letter of credit or mortgage approval letter.

Once the transaction is negotiated you will sign the final contact and place a deposit, usually $1,000 to $5,000 in escrow. That can be handled by wiring funds to the closing agent(title company) in Florida.

All foreclosure properties are purchased “As Is” with right to inspect. This means that within 7 to 10 days of contract date you can have the property inspected(surveyed) to make sure it is structurally sound.

The seller makes no warranties and and after the inspection you can either move forward or cancel the transaction and get your deposit back. This right to inspect is called a contingency to the contract.   Once this contingency has been removed we move towards closing.

The Title Company will do a title search and provide a title insurance policy guaranteeing you equitable title. This search and policy is normally paid for by the seller but with some of the foreclosure properties the seller(bank) will not pay for this and it becomes your cost. For a property priced below $100,000 the search and policy will be less than $1,000.  

Once all the contingencies have been removed from the contract and the title has been cleared to close(settle) closing documents are sent to all parties by the Title Company either via email or FedEx. Some of the documents will require a notarized signature so you may need a solicitor for this. After you have signed and the documents have been notarized you pop them back in the FedEx to the Title Company while also wiring the funds to close. Once the Title Company receives the documents back, from both buyer and seller, the transaction is closed and funded. The house now belongs to you.   

As your Broker, I will assist you with:  

  1. Finding the right property
  2. Preparing the offer
  3. Negotiations
  4. Arranging inspections
  5. Connecting you with an Insurance Company
  6. Making sure all contracts are proper
  7. Reviewing the closing documents
  8. Arranging property management if needed
  9. And what ever else needs to be done to make sure it is a smooth transaction for you. 

I think this is all for now. Did I miss anything?

A cry for help!!!

Posted by admin December - 31 - 1969 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Sold!!OK folks. I need help and I need it bad. I’m looking for a few good Buyer agents that want to work. No part timers. Full time agents with technology skills. I have leads. Lots of leads.

I’m losing business because I can’t get to them all. But Broker Bryant how many leads can you possibly have? Well let’s see……..yesterday alone I received 53 international buyer leads!!!!

On an average I’m getting from 10-20 buyer leads a day and I expect that number to rise quickly. Being that they are International buyers they do take some time to germinate and hopefully won’t be your entire source of income BUT they sure would be a nice supplement to your normal business.

By the way, I’m looking to HIRE not refer. Interested? Give me a call…….or click here.
