Crack down on Fake PCS and other news. . .

Standard

www.910homes.net

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you there have been lots of changes in the real estate industry in the last few years.  Rumor patrol is part of my job.  We had an amazing series of meetings with base officials, state organizations, and peers.  The result?  A few updates.

-Rumors have swirled for years that E5 and below are required to stay on base.  Not the case.  No USMC order exists nor is one planned.

-North Carolina has had some changes in the way fees can be assessed and collected for property management and tenants.  If you have questions regarding your lease, property manager, your rights as a tenant or owner, feel free to call or email.  If you are a tenant and have a dispute with the property management firm or the property owner, do not simply move out of the property and abandon your lease.  Consult an attorney or even a competing firm for help on how to constructively sole your problem and keep you out of the court system.

-FALSE PCS ORDERS.  Enacted in 2003, the Soldiers and Sailors Relief act (http://usmilitary.about.com/od/sscra/l/blsscra.htm) was drafted to protect Active (and later amended to cover Reservists) Duty Service Members.  With a simple thirty notice and a copy of PCS  orders(Permanent Change of Station), a service member could break their lease with no penalty.  For a variety of reasons: found a home they’d like to buy, tired of the current living arrangements, divorce, etc. there has been a rise in folks drafting FALSE PCS ORDERS to help them break leases or terminate a real estate transaction, abusing the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act and creating financial turmoil for innocent builders, property owners and managers.  In the instance of the USMC, there has and will continue to be a crack down.  My firm verifies each and every copy of PCS orders breaking a lease or a contract by contacting the Command which has had mixed results.  In several instances the result was the active duty member being booted from their respective service.  If you’re reading this thinking about falsifying pcs orders, there are other, legal options (ask me if you have questions, regardless of where you’re located).  From this week forward, there will be a point of contact (POC) at Camp Lejeune who will research each and every inquiry and report back directly.  Don’t be that guy that gets caught.

If this info wasn’t helpful in answering your questions. . .or even created more, feel free to shoot me an email and I’ll get you some answers.

***I would type out a LONG disclaimer here, however, I have homes to show and clients to meet.  In SHORT: No, I’m not an attorney but I know a few so don’t take anything here as the gospel.  I’m a North Carolina licensed Real Estate Broker and REALTOR so if you’re not in NC, things might be a little different.  If you’re looking to move anywhere in the world and don’t want to throw a dart at the phone book to find a talented and experienced agent you wouldn’t mind being locked in a car or office with for a several day long house hunt, it’s a handy match-making service I provide free of charge.  Thinking of buying, selling or renting?  I can help you weigh the pros and cons and navigate the process.  Give me a holler!

Spring has sprung which was cause for a new blog title.

Standard

   TheGlassHouseBlog.com is alive and kicking. . .feel free to pick up a rock every now and then and pitch it my way.  Love some feedback and more ideas. . .this year I think there are a few treats in store in terms of format, new topics, etc. so keep checking back.  New business cards are on order. . .and at some point this spring, I’ll get around to a new head shot but enjoy the snap to your left for the time being.

 Lots happening in the real estate market of Onslow County NC.  I have a few blogs-in-progress but work, handily, gets in the way at times and dampens the creative spirit.  Adding some new folks to the team this year as well, so, should you visit, new smiling faces to meet.

If you’d like a snap shot of the market conditions for your specific needs and timeline, it’s a free serice I provide as well as free relocation services. . .if you’re anywhere in the world, I can research and find you an experienced and friendly agent with a rockin’ track record so you aren’t just throwing darts at the phone book looking for talanted help.

Visit www.910homes.net . . .and if you know a talented computer geek (or happen to be one), I’d love some new layout ideas/options. . .thinking over web domain renovation and I’m open to suggestions.

In the meantime, I’m wrapping up some comparative market analysis projects for a few homes today and managed while out at lunch to find some cotton candy scented body spray at Walgreen’s to complete the Easter Bunny ensemble I’ll don for the annual office Easter party.  Like Elle Woods in Legally Blonde with her pink scented resume. . .I figured smelling less like a costume out of a box after a year, smelling like candy might be helpful with scared wee ones.  We shall see!
