Cheddar’s Casual Cafe’ is located on 1-92/New Haven Avenue in Melbourne. It is less than 5 minutes west of the Melbourne Square Mall. It is a popular spot. Each time that I have gone there is a waiting list to get seated. It’s popularity seems to come from it’s warm ambiance, the good sized portions for dinner, the large variety of foods and the affordable prices. It’s unusual for me to walk out of Cheddar’s without leftovers to take home for lunch the next day.

The night we went I had the dinner portion Grilled Whitefish with lemon pepper seasoning over rice, broccoli and a loaded baked potato for $9.49.

My friend had the Crispy Chicken Salad at $8.29.

Clean up the Clutter Before the Sign Goes Up

Clean up the Clutter Before the Sign Goes Up

The National Association of Realtors conducted a study to find out why houses don’t sell. Well, not surprisingly, price topped the list. An overpriced listing will sit on the market for months, and sometimes even years, without selling, and often without ever receiving an offer.

The study went on to indicate the second reason a house doesn’t sell is because it’s not ready to be put on the market. The attention to the small details has been overlooked. The house hasn’t been cleaned and cleared of clutter.

So, before the for sale sign goes up a good cleaning from top to bottom is ideal. Neutral paint and wall coverings appeal to a wider variety of buyers. And, clearing out the excess clutter, knick knacks and furniture help to show off the beautiful features of the property. If a buyer can’t see past the furnishings and the mess, the buyer will either make a low ball offer, or the buyer will turn away and never take a second look at this property.

Note:  The picture features a house that was for sale, that I showed to a buyer.

I remember when a buyer and I looked at a house that advertised a ‘newer’ air conditioning system and roof. We questioned what ‘newer’ meant. In checking further and asking for documentation we found that the system was 13 years old. The original paperwork for the unit was all we needed for clarification. We were also able to get an accurate age on the roof.

I Like Dates, Don't You?

I Like Dates, Don’t You?

When looking for a house to purchase, buyers like to know dates. Insurance companies also like to know dates. They like to know how old the roof is, how old the A/C is. Has the electric and plumbing been updated? When? How old are the appliances?

Time flies and sometimes these dates slip away from sellers.

In selling a house it’s important to gather those important documents to pass along to a buyer, should they or their insurance company ask for them. If those items have recently been updated or replaced those are items that should be included in the notations of the property listing. These dates often help a prospective buyer in making a decision on a particular house.

On traditional sales sellers fill out a property disclosure, noting any defects they are aware of. But, often, questions come up. With proper documentation and receipts there’s no question as to the age of the roof, air conditioning system, appliances or hot water heater.

Owners, gather all those important papers and keep them in a handy place.

And buyers, be sure to have your Realtor ask to see copies of these documents.

NOTE: On foreclosed properties, there are no warranties, no property disclosures and no documentation. The sellers that owned the property are gone. And, the banks selling the properties do not have any of these records. So, unfortunately we don’t have dates on appliances, the electrical system, the roof, etc.  But, check with your city or county to see what dates permits were pulled.

Homeowner Chased me out with Baseball Bat

Homeowner Chased me out with Baseball Bat

I remember years ago when I called a listing agent to show his occupied property in Palm Bay. He said he would call me back when he could confirm the time with the owner.  I didn’t get a confirmation to show, so I called back.  “They’re not returning my calls, so just go ahead and use the combination lockbox, show it and leave your card. No one will be home,” he said, so I proceeded to the house with my buyers.

We pulled in the driveway, got out and headed for the door.  I spun the dial on the lockbox,  I rang the doorbell and knocked.  No car. No answer.  I unlocked the door and carefully stuck my head in, calling out “Hello,” as I always do before entering any house to show. No answer. It was dark inside. All shades were drawn.  I began searching for the light switch, when I noticed a large stew pot simmering on the stove.  Someone was cooking, but they were nowhere in sight. “Hello?” I called out again.  No answer.  We began sticking our heads in the open doorways. “Is anybody home?” I grabbed my cell phone and hit redial to get the listing agent back on the phone.  “Is someone supposed to be home?” I asked.  ‘You’re fine, just go ahead and show it.’  Right then, my buyer, Mandy screamed.  She went running past her husband and I, heading for the front door.  “There’s someone in there.  There’s a woman in that bed, but she’s not moving.”  The front door slammed and she left the house. 

“Hello” I called, “is anyone home?”  No answer. I stuck my head in the bedroom door. She was right.  There was a woman, laying in the bed, not responding.  “We should go outside,” I said, ” we’re going to scare her, if she wakes up to find us here.”  We started making our way back down the hall.  I heard screaming in a foreign language coming from the bedroom.  As I turned on my heel, the woman was heading down the hall towards us,  wielding a baseball bat over her head. I’m not sure what she was saying, but judging by the look in her eyes she had every intention of using that bat.

Chris went running. I heard the front door slam again as he scurried outside.

I started backing up as I was trying to explain that I was sorry we had startled her and woken her up.  I told her I had spoken to her Realtor and he didn’t think that anyone would be home.  She was still yelling, waving the bat towards me.  I was pretty sure she had no idea what I was saying, nor did she care.  So, I backed up towards the front door and slithered out, slamming it behind me.  My heart was racing. I ran down to the end of the driveway to find Mandy and Chris hiding behind my van. Mandy was terrified.

I’m pretty sure that the crack of that bat against the side of my head would have been pretty painful.

Mandy and Chris did find a house to buy. This one was vacant. To this day, we still talk about the lady with the baseball bat that scared us half to death.  Thank goodness she didn’t have a gun.

Is this Decorating on a Budget?

Is this Decorating on a Budget?

Melbourne Beach foreclosures

I am never surprised at what I might find when I head out to a house to show it to my clients, especially when we are looking at investment properties.

Foreclosures often turn up things that become interesting topics of discussion and this one was no exception.

Would this living room be considered decorating on a shoestring budget? 

I bet they had a lot of fun doing it.

This picture was taken in the living room of a bank owned foreclosure offered for sale in Melbourne Beach, FL.
