Things to Do



February already!  The Florida weather has been almost PERFECT.  A bit more rain than usual but the flowers look glorious.  Of course, this is the time of year we all congratulate ourselves on being so smart to live here.


Be sure to read about Jupiter Lanes and learn more about fun things to do with family and friends.  Occassionally, we all need a few rainy day activities!


Lots of Real Estate news as well.  We have not been this busy in 3 years and we are loving it!


Happy Valentine's Day!
Laura & Tana

BallenIsles Sales*102A Palm Point
We are often asked, "What is the difference between a foreclosure, short sale and REO?". 

A short sale occurs when the lender agrees to take less than the full loan payoff of an owner's property. The homeowner is most likely behind on payments and owing more than the home is worth.

Foreclosure is where the bank takes possession of the property because of non-payment for a long period of time or an unapproved short sale.

An REO is a bank-owned property ("real-estate owned"), when homes go into foreclosure they are sold at a trustee sale, if no one purchases it at the trustee sale, they become REO properties. Later they are often listed by Realtors hired by the bank."

Just for the record, short sales are not really short; they actually take a long time!
