Hurricane Irma Impacts on Pending Real Estate Contracts

The Far Bar Contract has a new change this year that impacts Real Estate contracts with relation to Natural Disasters like Hurricane's. 

The change of the contract on paragraph 5 section b of the contract references Standard G which is below: 

Standard G. Force Majeure

New time frames apply when transaction involves Force Majeure.

Closing may be extended up to 7 days once insurance becomes available and closing services are restored following the Force Majeure.  Previously the contract provided for an extension up to 3 days. 

In the event Force Majeure delays performance of the contract, the parties are now bound to the contract up to 30 days after Closing Date. Previously, the timeframe to extend performance under the contract after a Force Majeure was a negotiable term with a default of 14 days after Closing Date.  

Of course if a property you are buying or selling is impacted by a Hurricane it is best to consult an attorney to learn how your transaction will be affected.

Tesla's New Solar Roof

If Your In The Market For New Roof Tesla Has You Covered

Tesla is coming out with a roofing solution for home owners with it's solar roof panels. At first glance the panels seem very expensive and when you factor in the tax credit and the cost savings of generating your own energy that may not be the case. 

After further review my initial thought was that these panels wold be prone to breaking or cracking and it looks like these solar panels are stronger then some traditional roof tiles. 

Take a peek at this short 1 minute video for everything you need to know.

How An Agent Can Alleviate Stress

Purchasing a home can be a stressful experience, whether you’re a first-time buyer or you’ve been through the process before. But that’s one of the reasons that working with a real estate professional is so worthwhile. With your agent’s guidance, buying a home should be enjoyable, rather than stressful. Here are some of the more unique circumstances where your agent can make your life much easier.

Out-of-town buyers: If you’re looking for vacation homes or moving to a job in a new city, there’s a good chance that viewing homes will be difficult—you could be a long drive or even a plane ride away. With today’s video messaging apps like Skype or Facetime, your agent can walk you through a property virtually. It’s not the same as walking through in person, but it will at least give you an idea about whether a property is worth pursuing further.

When life is just too crazy: If you’re just getting too busy with everything else going on in your life, a good buyer’s agent should be able to recognize the situation and help you take a step back. They can suggest that you take a few weeks off from your home search to recharge, or only focus on properties that exactly fit your wants list.

Inspection issues: You’re dreaming about move-in day, and then some unforeseen issues turn up during inspection. A good agent can work out those issues by negotiating a lower offer—to cover costs of repairs—or by getting the seller to fix the problem.

Requesting A Flyby-Stuart Air Show


Visiting the Stuart Air Show and luckily witnessed a F-18 high speed, low altitude flyby. My girlfriend wondered if the pilot was asking permission to buzz the tower. To this I said "negative the pattern is full" and then laughed and an instant later this video happened.
