Thinking about doing a Garage Conversion?

Wed, Apr 3rd 2024 11:13 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

Thinking about doing a garage conversion?

If you need more living space, a possibility for more space would be to convert your garage to a living area. Two car garages average about 400sqft living area while a one car garage will give you about 300sqft. This can be a big addition to your living space if you do not need the garage for your cars. Some of the options could include a large bedroom with a bath, family room, office, craft room, movie theater, game room, gym, in-law suite to name a few.

What does it take for such a project? I would recommend getting a professional licensed general contractor to accomplish your goal. This will ensure your conversion is up to code requirements. ...

I received a Low Appraisal Value, what do I do?

Wed, Mar 13th 2024 2:41 pm by David Shippey Winter Haven News

I just received a low appraisal value on my home or the home I am purchasing. What do I do? Although the report may look intimidating, there are several key points to investigate to make sure something was not overlooked. Two of those key points are the condition and quality rating. I have received some very low appraisals that just don't make sense only to find the condition and or quality were incorrectly entered. You will find these on each of the properties used in comparison and most importantly the subject property.

Here are the Condition Categories:
C1 - Recently constructed; not previously occupied; new components, fixtures, and mechanical systems
C2 - No deferred maintenance; mini...

Have You Filed for Your Homestead Exemption Discount?

Wed, Feb 28th 2024 8:58 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

If Florida is your primary residence and you own or are buying a home, you can qualify for our Homestead Exemption discount. What is that? The discount can take the first $50,000 value of your home and make that portion property tax free. How much is that? It depends on your millage rate. But, it can save you $1,000 to $2,000 a year in property taxes. If you are paying a mortgage and the lender is paying your taxes, that could reduce your payment by $80 to $165 a month.

In addition to the Homestead Exemption discount, Florida offers another savings in the Save Our Homes program. This program works with the Homestead Exemption discount and limits the amount your property taxes can increas...
