Some customers have been with them since the very beginning giving them the opportunity to work on their homes, condos and lake homes. Being avid fishermen they wanted to move closer to the water and since St. Augustine is one of the top fishing spots it was the perfect choice to expand the business to cover Alachua, Flagler, Putnam and St. johns counties and continue to give their customers a dependable work force. Their expertise is in interior and exterior painting; pressure washing homes, driveways, pool enclosures and decks; concrete staining and waterproofing. Slate is also licensed in resurfacing of showers, counter tops, tubs and tub surrounds, giving them a new look at a minimal cost in just a fraction of the time compared to re-tiling or replacement.

Let them put their experience and knowledge to work for you.

L I V E G R E E N & S AV E G R E E N The following is a list of simple, everyday ways to contribute to a greener planet and save money while doing it!

5. Think before you buy and shop smart. •

1. Save Energy • • • • • •

Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs.  Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).  Turn off lights and televisions when not in use.  Unplug appliances when you're not using them. Or use a power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts energy use.  Wash clothes in cold water.  Use a drying rack or clothesline to dry your clothes.

2. Save water • • • • •

Turn off the water when you brush your teeth.  Take shorter showers.  Install a low-flow showerhead and toilet.  Landscape with native plants.  Use a rain barrel to conserve water.  

3. Eat Smart • • •

Shop at a farmers market or buy locally grown fruits and vegetables.  Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy.  Eat lower on the food chain.  

4. Skip the bottled water • •

Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bottled water.  Use a reusable water bottle, preferably aluminum rather than plastic, with you when traveling or at work.  

Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Checkout websites like Craigslist or Freecycle to track down furniture, appliances, and other items that are gently used, low cost or free.  Check out garage sales and thrift stores  Buy in bulk. Purchasing food in bulk saves money and packaging.  Wear clothes that don't need to be drycleaned. If you must dry clean, locate one that uses fewer chemicals.  Invest in high-quality, long-lasting products.  Borrow when you can and check out your local library for books and movies.  Use a reusable bag whenever you shop  

6. Reduce your landfill utilization •

Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible.  • Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem.  • Start a compost! 

7. Make your own cleaning supplies. You can make very effective, non-toxic cleaning products from a few simple ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda and water. Making your own cleaning products saves money, time, and packaging-not to mention improves indoor air quality. 

8. Educate yourself and spread the word…

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Dear Fellow Association Members: The real estate market has improved – finally! At long last, and after several hard years, it seems that improvement has occurred. While this is certainly great news and is welcome, there are many challenges still before us. Your Board of Directors for the Realtors, the MLS and the finance committee are working hard to protect and improve the services available to you. Be sure to check out the NAR 2012 Convention and Expo to be held in Orlando, November 9 thru 12. http://www.realtor.org/convention.nsf/ There is a lot of education, updating, networking and fun to be had at the convention. Look it up! Volunteer to make your Realtor profile better in the eyes of the public! Your Board of Realtors and MLS have contributed to the St. Johns Housing Partnership the materials to build two ramps for homes in need in Hastings. The work will take place Saturday, September 15th. Please contact the Board for details and to sign up. Come on…it will be fun and it makes you feel good to help someone! SYNDICATION OF LISTINGS DATA – MLS – WEBSITES AND MOBILE APPS – IDX-IN THE CLOUD…. there is no more ‘good old days’ of simple business with the technology challenges we now face. To be relevant as a practitioner you MUST understand the meanings of and workings of these NEW technologies. That is where education and keeping in touch become so important. Upcoming elections on the MLS Board for Secretary, Treasurer and 3 Directors is an opportunity for ‘new vitality’ in our organization. We need more member involvement in governance of the Board of Realtors and the MLS to insure that we stay relevant as an organization by providing the best services to our members. Please consider getting involved at a Board or committee level or just be a more active participant at our Board functions. One fun way to keep up is to attend the Board Mixer. The next mixer will be held Thursday, September 20th at the St. Augustine Beach pier facility. Sounds like fun! Wishing you all a good fall season leading up to the Holidays!

“YES ON AMENDMENT 4” The “YES on Amendment 4” movement is helping thousands of Floridians discover they can do something about Sudden Posterior Reduction Syndrome, more commonly known as getting your assets taxed off. Sudden Posterior Reduction Syndrome can occur when politicians in Florida raise your property taxes, even when the value of your property has gone down. This is a painful tax gimmick called recapture- and it has happened to thousands of citizens across Florida. This year, you have the opportunity to fight for all Floridians who have been affected by this painful condition. Amendment 4 will give the Florida Legislature the authority to end this devastating practice and help get Florida’s economy growing again. Sign up today at http://taxyourassetsoff.com/volunteer/ to learn how you can get plugged into the campaign in your community. There are YES on Amendment 4 activities happening throughout the state, so we have a place for you!

Secrets to Success Selling Distressed Properties by Wally Conway, Host of The Home and Garden Show, Saturdays 7 to 9 AM on WOKV AM690 and 106.5 FM, and President of HomePro Inspections 904-268-8211 WOKV AM690 and 106.5 So you’ve been working with a buyer for months, visiting house after house. Finally! A decision is made! It’s a foreclosure, so you put in the offer, and wait. And wait. One day the offer is accepted! Since the deal is a foreclosure, it’s obviously an “as is” purchase, so your buyer asks if the home inspection and WDO inspection are really necessary. You think silently to your self – that would be nice, less to deal with. No meeting the WDO inspector, no letting in the home inspector. And they’re getting such a “good deal” on the home… So is this the perfect time NOT to do the proper inspections? Of course not! Buying a home under “normal” real estate conditions is risky enough. There is a lot for your client to consider. But when dealing with distressed properties, it’s more important than ever to protect your buyer, which in turn will protect you as the REALTOR. Truth be known, I’ve never done a foreclosure or a short sale. Not as a buyer, seller, or agent. But here at HomePro, we’ve inspected A LOT of short sale and foreclosure homes. So what have I learned that might help bring you success? Here are but a few reasons for all real estate professionals to encourage their clients to have all the proper inspections, even if the home is being purchased “as is”:

1. Now more than ever it’s a “buyer beware” environment. As a professional real estate agent, it’s important to have your buyer’s best interest at the top of your mind. Most distressed homes are sold under SHORT due diligence timeframes. Yet many of these properties contain unpleasant surprises that may not always be obvious, and can be very costly to repair. Your buyer needs to know what to expect in the future, so they can budget for repairs and ongoing maintenance once they move into their new home. 2. Most homes subject to foreclosure/short sale have more problems than similar homes in the same neighborhood. Did I say short sale homes are bad, broken, or to be avoided? Absolutely NOT! But the reality is that when financial problems strike, the care and repair of the home are among the first expenses to be trimmed. Neglect and deferred maintenance are common when the mortgage can’t be paid. Deferred maintenance often leads to moisture intrusion and mold issues in vacant homes, some of which is not always evident at first blush. Pest infestations are also common in distressed properties, from snakes to mice, bats, bees, termites, and raccoons. And unfortunately on occasion, the frustration of losing the home has resulted in owners/sellers doing intentional damage before their departure, sometimes in ways that are malicious and often hidden to the untrained eye. 3. Vacant homes have often been broken into and vandalized. Fixtures, copper wires, heating and air units, and other items may have been stolen – these conditions can only be found when an inspector goes into those places that most buyers will not venture (crawlspaces and/or attics). 4. The true condition of a home in a foreclosure/short sale situation is not known by the lender. The lender’s loss mitigation department is in the business of recovering money, not spending money to properly determine condition. This leaves assessment of the condition of the home to the buyer, but most buyers are not sophisticated enough to view the home objectively and without emotion for their possible future home. This is where a professional expert like HomePro comes in! 5. What about after the sale? Is the buyer ready for the costs of fixing and maintaining this home? Maybe the house was a “great deal” in relation to other homes in the neighborhood, but was it truly a “good deal” for this buyer? How will they know what it will take to fix the home if it isn’t thoroughly inspected? Are they guessing? Are they trying to save money by foregoing some or all the inspections? This is when a good agent will step in to RESCUE the buyer! If a buyer is considering no inspections, or cheap inspections, then the buyer of a short sale home is probably not truly ready for the costs of home ownership. It is critical to have electrical power on in the foreclosure/short sale home for its inspection. Yes, expert and knowledgeable inspection companies like HomePro can inspect without power, but the most thorough assessment of a foreclosure/short sale home comes only from turning on all mechanical systems. The power company can temporarily put power into home in many cases for a small fee or deposit. Do not expect the lender to reimburse this expense, but turning on the power (and assuring it will remain on for your inspection appointment) is usually a very simple task and one that is important to the process. A thorough inspection process is essential to educate buyers about their new home, so they have a clear picture of the situation. Remember, most homebuyers, even in this market, are first time home buyers OR haven’t purchased a home in long time or not in this area in the country. There are many things for buyers to know and understand about purchasing and maintaining a home, and your home inspector can assist with this educational process. And don’t skimp by referring a cheap inspection service – only an in-depth inspection by an expert can discover many of the issues often present in a foreclosure/short sale property; so your buyer will get what they expect!
