“I’m the key to your new home.”~~Your Favorite Love Broker
The Florida market is booming and getting stronger every day–and I’m not talking about Real Estate.
There is a singles’ tsunami going on right before your eyes. Dynamic duos may have broken up, thousands of singles have moved to the area during the pandemic and countless others have given up on dead end relationships and online dating. Add this to an already dismal bar scene and you will come up empty handed and empty hearted every time.
Singles Beware of the following pitfalls when it comes to our current dating climate. MANY risks abound today, more now than ever before. During our pandemic era, the dating stakes are high.
The Short Sale: Typically, a disgruntled male or female that doesn’t want to be single. They didn’t choose this label per se, and they are mad at any and all things that made them single. There is some hope with therapy and a healthy time-out to rebuild thy soul. Please contact us for recommendations.
The Foreclosure: This is a man or woman you want to stay away from at all costs. This person is likely damaged or destroyed, sadly. They really should not be dating as they are in some kind of a crisis. They are likely in shambles–from financial to emotional or physical destruction. This is the saddest type of single to encounter. They need so much work–it may be impossible. This will take a long commitment on the buyer’s part to rebuild. The question remains: Is it worth it?
The Renter: He or she is not secure for whatever reason. They may be new to the area (which is okay, as long as they are rooting down in some way here in Florida). How long is the lease? What are their intentions? Are they financially sound or amidst a financial setback? Why do they rent? Find out before you proceed, without judgment. Just the facts, please.
Lives with Family: What is their age? Occupation? Cultural position? Why do they live with family? Is it a home with an east wing? Or is it by default?
Lives with a Roommate: What is their age? Why? How? Who? What? When? Have fun exploring this topic as some have valid reasons and remain age appropriate while others are not.
New Construction: Usually upscale, up to date, and likely financially secure. This person knows what they want and are customizing it to suit their needs and wants. They may be demanding and uncompromising. They may be rigid in and out of the bedroom. They may be worth it though! I would not rule them out.
Old Construction: Worth the wait. Look for a solid foundation. Choose cement over wood. Look for good lines and structure. Don’t be fooled by an attractive outward appearance and forgo the inspection! Get a reliable second and third opinion and listen to your gut. We all have untapped intuition–if you listen to your inner voice. Seek out the opinion of a true friend when in doubt. Even easier, when in doubt–don’t proceed.
Waterfront vs. Western Communities: This is a matter of preference. Do you prefer mountains or the ocean? You can also have the best of both worlds too–if you date smart!
It’s a seller’s market and let’s face it, when you date you are selling yourself and buying someone else in a sense (comparatively speaking). Hopefully you don’t have to try too hard. There’s such a thing called “over-staging.” Be you. Aim true. Believe in yourself and move with care and kindness at your center.
