So you’re perusing listings and finally you find it: Staring back at you from your laptop screen is the perfect house that’s in the right location, has the amenities you’re looking for, and still, somehow, fits in your budget. There’s just one problem: It’s sale pending. But what does sale pending mean exactly? Are you too late or do you still have a shot?

Although Brevardians may refer to past storms as “hurricanes”, by the time they strike there, some of them may have subsided to tropical storms or depressions. Because of the threat of storm surge, the beach community on the barrier island is often required to evacuate well in advance of the storm. The possibility of storm surge is diminished when the storm comes across the state instead of from the Atlantic.
The county government has historically labeled the beach areas differently. The North Reach includes 9.4 miles (15.1 km) in Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach.

In the late 1800s, real estate brokers regularly gathered at the offices of their local associations to share information about properties they were trying to sell. They agreed to compensate other brokers who helped sell those properties, and the first MLS was born, based on a fundamental principle that’s unique to organized real estate: Help me sell my inventory and I’ll help you sell yours.

When discount and flat fee compensation arrangements started growing in popularity  in the early 2000s some MLSes changed their membership rules or rule enforcement to make discount/flat fee MLS listings difficult or impossible. In response, the Federal Trade Commission investigated, found several violations of anti-trust laws, and entered into settlements with five MLSes to enable free competition for listings. One MLS, Realcomp in Michigan, refused to enter a settlement/consent agreement with the FTC, asserting it had the right to hide listings of discounters because such competition is detrimental to the revenue of its members. In 2006, the FTC filed a lawsuit against the Realcomp MLS alleging violations of federal anti-trust laws and squelching free competition.  The lawsuit went to trial in 2007 and the FTC lost, but won the case in a 4-0 unanimous ruling on appeal in 2009.

Regardless, with the country’s roads, bridges, waterways, dams, and other public projects aging, some projects will be getting funds in the years ahead whether or not the plan is all or partly enacted. The question for you is, how will you get involved? Will you get involved upfront, when projects are in the planning stages, or will you get involved after projects get going? Often, bridge replacement means land transactions, because it’s not unusual for a replacement bridge to be built alongside the existing bridge. That means government might have to acquire or condemn nearby property. Or if a road is widened—will that involve acquisition or condemnation of land?

“We cannot think of anything Leslie could have done better in the sale of my late father’s home. While his home was beautiful and in a fantastic location, it was very dated and we live 400 miles away. Leslie knew the local market, gave us a realistic opinion of the value and put a lot of time and thought into what our priorities needed to be in order to sell the house quickly. She respected our thoughts and concerns throughout the process. The contractors she recommended for the updates did a great job. We have never had a real estate agent keep us as up to date as Leslie did. As closing approached, she went out of her way to assist us in tracking down the necessary documentation and signatures which was a huge help as we work and are so far away from Brevard. The most important things to me were that she was a pleasure to interact with and we came to trust her more and more as time went on.”

“We found Carol and Robert through their blog, and could not be more happy that we did. We felt an immediate connection, and knew that they were the team for us. Through countless conversations and visits to prospective homes, Carol and Robert always made us feel as if we were their top priority. They made the process of finding our new home fun and enjoyable, and really set the stage for the new life we would be creating in the mountains of North Carolina. I think what makes them such outstanding partners while looking for a new home is that they really listen. They could anticipate what we were looking for, and opened our eyes to properties we otherwise would not have looked at. The home we bought is an example of that.
