PAPERWORK AND PERSONALITY!

As you prepare to sell your home, you must begin by making a choice: to seek the services of a professional or to proceed without representation. You realize that your home is probably your biggest financial investment, with a value that could be hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Now imagine if you had a legal problem involving that kind of money – would you prepare and present your own case to the judge without an attorney? Not surprisingly, managing legal issues is just one of the top reasons that most sellers seek the representation of a qualified real estate professional.

On the paperwork side, there are offers to purchase, sales agreements, inspection reports, title investigations, and more, all leading up to the final closing. On the personal side, there is the experience and skill required to successfully negotiate between parties, as well as to anticipate and resolve the myriad issues that can arise from listing to offer to sale.

Considering the size of your investment, why would you put any of your stake at risk by forgoing the assistance and advice of an experienced professional? Maximize your returns with a minimum of hassle and cost. You wouldn’t go to court without an attorney, and you wouldn’t operate without a surgeon. It’s easy to see that some things are just too important to handle without an expert.

If you’re planning to sell your home soon and would like professional representation, the Gabe Sanders real estate team are the ones that can and will sell your home, give us a call at (772) 323-6996 or come by the office at 2391 SE Ocean Blvd. in Stuart, Florida.  Visit us on the web at www.GabeSanders.com

Martin County Florida Schools Report Almost Straight A’s

The state of Florida came out with it’s latest report card for each school in the state. Based on the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test), each school and district is tested on reading, writing, mathematics and science.
This year, Martin County received 18 A’s and one B, according to reports released by the state in June.

Martin County Schools Superintendent Sara Wilcox said: “This is certainly a good pay day for us, It validates how hard our teachers, administrators and students and everyone’s been working.”

Schools that improve a letter grade or maintain an A grade are rewarded $100 per student. The school recognition money is largely used for faculty bonuses.

Grades weren’t as good across the state as in Martin County. Statewide, the number of A- rated schools dropped, and the number of F- rated schools went from 21 in 2006 to 82 this year.
The Treasure Coast also received its first batch of F’s since the state started issuing school grades in 1999. For the first time this year, the test was scored for the science section and in math by the lowest performing 25 percent of students.

Martin received the second-highest percentage of A schools among the state’s 67 counties. Gilchrist County had the highest percentage of A’s, though the county located in northeastern Florida only has four schools.

Two Martin schools received their first A’s ever: South Fork High and Indiantown Middle.
“It’s something we’ve been working for for a long time,” said Indiantown Middle Principal Debra Henderson. “It was great that the grades came the last day of summer school because we still had about 75 percent of our kids here. We were able to have a little celebration.”

The district’s lone B school — J.D. Parker School of Science, Math & Technology — had enough points to be considered a “high A school,” said Teresa D’Albora, the district’s director of school improvement and curriculum.

But because the lowest 25 percent of the school’s students didn’t make learning gains, the state dropped the grade to a B.

Wilcox said she and other education leaders believe there should be a change in the grading system.

“I would prefer to see a system that rewards schools for their work with the lowest quartile rather than being punitive, I’m hoping that maybe sometime in the future we can see some kind of change in the grading system that rewards rather than punishes schools.”

The Clark Advanced Learning Center, a charter school at the Chastain Campus of Indian River Community College, received a B from the state.Charter schools are public schools operated by an individual, company or group and get the same per-pupil money from the state as other district schools.

Martin County continues to be a unique and desirable area for families looking for quality education for their children. A strong tradition of limited growth and superb Florida lifestyle remains in place in Martin County which includes the towns of Stuart, Jensen Beach, Palm City, Sewalls Point, Hobe Sound, Hutchinson Island and Indiantowwn.
