Controlling Moisture Fix leaks. Under sinks, in air conditioning condensate lines, ice machines. Make sure windows and doors close tightly and don’t leak damp air inside We have seen big mold problems develop in locations where the outside damp air was pulled into the structure for a week because a sliding glass door or window was not completely closed. Quickly (24-48 hours or less) get moving on correcting water damages caused by water intrusions from the above leaks. Associations need to have the ability to begin mitigating water damages in a condo because they often affect others in the same building. Keep it dry, Make sure the air conditioning system is working correctly and RUNS. Remember mold can grow at 60% relative humidity and around here that’s most of the year. In beach front condos your unit is insulated by your neighbors condos and how hot or cold they keep their unit can have and effect on yours, and whether your thermostat ever senses it’s hot enough to turn on the unit and cool and dehumidify the condo

Getting the Most from Mold Remediation

  Since we are located in a coastal area, moisture and mold is a real problem. I asked a friend of mine, Michael Conroy with “Expert Dry” for the rights to publish the article below. I think you will find it most interesting and helpful.   Getting the most out of mold remediation is like telling someone how to enjoy a root canal.  Professionals should do both processes, as painlessly and efficiently as possible and at a fair price but who wants to go there anyway? Rather than first discuss the blissful benefits of mold remediation lets discuss how to avoid them … [Read More...]

The importance of the letter of introduction The letter of introduction will require a great deal of thought and preparation. A simple letter stating your name and a little information about yourself, the company name and address and telling them you would appreciate the opportunity to be of service to them, just doesn’t cut it. This letter must grab their attention in the first couple sentences or they will trash it and you will have accomplished nothing. If your letter is well received it will make the next step much easier, however, if they perceive it as mass marketing effort, the next step automatically become much more difficult. The very appearance of this letter is so important that I suggest it should have a hand written address and return address. I believe it makes a difference when a fountain pen is used rather than a ball-point pen. We want it to be personal, and to leave an impression of great importance.

Farming—Step 2; Letter of Introduction

Throughout this series of steps to successful farming, you will notice a close comparison and use of terminology related to row-crop farming; such as raising cotton, corn and etc.. After you have selected the farm area you want to concentrate your efforts in;  it’s now time to prepare the soil for planting. This is a very important step because it is your first contact with potential customers that own property in the subdivision or condominium complex in which you plan to earn your living. The second step is to prepare a letter of introduction of which you will mail to all owners in your … [Read More...]

Generally most of my posts are adaptable to sales in any industry. Today I am specifically addressing real estate sales. If someone practices real estate very long, they will face legal issues; especially if they sell a lot of real estate. There is a very simple explanation for it too. It’s impossible to please everyone, and especially, if you represent both the buyer and the seller. In this type situation the buyer feels like the seller took advantage of them, while the seller feels like the buyer took advantage of them. As a Realtor® who is wedged between both parties thinking the agent showed partiality to the other party in the transaction. To complicate matters worse, in a typical real estate sales transaction there are numerous entities that have specific requirements and guidelines that must be followed.

Alabama is Different than most other States…. I can’t say for sure but based on my research, the only states that are still caveat emptor states are Virginia, Arkansas, and Alabama. When a person buys real estate in these three states, they need to fully understand it is their responsibility to make sure they know what they’re getting, that it’s in good condition and works properly. When the buyer does his due diligence to have the property inspected, their legal rights remain in place after closing should some latent structural defect appear. If a buyer elects not to have the proper inspection done, closes on the transaction and then a latent structural defect appears and the buyer sues for damages; numerous Supreme Court cases have ruled in favor of the seller and stated caveat emptor; the buyer is responsibility to inspect the property prior to purchase.

Understanding Caveat Emptor

This is a topic I try to talk about in every class I teach because it is the most important and the least understood law. I intentionally try to scare real estate agents to get them to understand the importance of the law and the effects it has on people buying real estate in Alabama. Today I will tell you how to see the law as it is written, disclose the other states that have the same law, and explain the dangers and remedies associated with caveat emptor. Caveat Emptor is the law in Alabama….. The Alabama Supreme Court has held caveat emptor to be the law in a consistent line of cases. … [Read More...]
