Florida police crack down on homestead fraud

MIAMI – Oct. 14, 2013 – Deploying police detectives from nine local cities to bolster homestead fraud investigations in Miami-Dade County is reaping fast results, according to the property appraiser.
 
Miami-Dade Property Appraiser Carlos Lopez-Cantera said with the extra police muscle, $6.2 million in violations were identified across Miami-Dade for September and October, compared with $3 million during June and July before the task force got started.......

I'm wondering how rampant this is across the state?  My guess is it's pretty bad as Floridians have been hammered financially over the past few years.  I'd love to hear from the professional real estate community out there on the front lines.

I heard about “toxic molds” that grow in homes. Should I be concerned about a serious health risk to me and my family?

The term “toxic mold” is not really accurate. While certain molds are toxigenic, meaning they can produce toxins (specifically mycotoxins), the molds themselves are not toxic, or poisonous. Hazards presented by molds that may produce mycotoxins should be considered the same as other common molds which can grow in your house. There is always a little mold everywhere – in the air and on many surfaces. There are very few reports that toxigenic molds found inside homes can cause unique or rare health conditions such as pulmonary hemorrhage or memory loss. These case reports are rare, and a causal link between the presence of the toxigenic mold and these conditions has not been proven.
 
In 2004 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people; with asthma symptoms in people with asthma; and with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals......  [read more below]

Having their home professionally inspected "before" listing it to the public, provides numerous advantages to the seller and their listing agent alike.  I appreciate any and all feedback from Realtors perspective, on this service I provide to home sellers.  Do you know of any current situations that would benefit?  Thank you in advance....

+Bill Gassett , a really good guy (you should follow him!), posted an article recently that reminded me of an interesting advantage for the #Home Seller and their Listing #Agent .  A Pre-Sale Home #Inspection !   What... you ask?  Having a property professionally inspected by the current owner, "before" listing it to the public, provides numerous advantages to everyone involved.  I would love feedback from the Real Estate Professionals amongst us. What are your thoughts?

Please consider this:

1: The Seller has the opportunity to repair any deficiencies that may be found beforehand.  This eliminates most, if not all of any "last minute negotiating" a buyer may attempt, based on their own home inspection report of your property.  When your home is in tip-top condition, there is very little wiggle room!

2: The Seller and their Listing Agent receive a link to the final report that I host on my web site in a private, secured location, indefinitely.  This link to the digital report can then be shared and included in marketing venues such as the property's MLS listing, Agent's website, social media, etc.  What better method, to make your listing stand out from the hundreds of others, than with a Pre-Inspected home?

3: You can provide printed copies of the final report to those interested buyers visiting your property, creating "piece of mind" that your home not only looks nice, but has no major deficiencies!

4: All my reports are "digital" and always include the selling Agent's info right at the top.  I host all reports indefinitely on my site, making it convenient for the client to retrieve the report if they happen to misplace their copy.. even years later! The Agent's information is still immediately available to the client, reminding them how hard you worked for them previously!  If they are interested in selling the home, or perhaps purchasing another, who do you think they will contact?

Ok, ok.... enough of my sales pitch.  I offer this to all my clients as a value added service, but I do feel very strongly that this is yet another great sales strategy which benefits all involved, and has lasting value for years to come!  (seller, buyer, agent, inspector)

Turning the A/C up or leaving it at the same temperature all day.
Which is better on your electric bill?
