Home Moving Scandals To Watch Out For


With Terry Story, 25-year Veteran Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker in Boca Raton, FL

As part of the sale and purchase of a home, families move in and out of houses all the time. And while moving may seem trivial, Terry has a few surprising stories on how people paid a price by not being fully aware of contract terms and insurance coverage on the move. In one instance, a moving truck caught fire and someone lost all their belongings, with no recourse to insurance! Others paid a lot in additional fees to place their belongings in storage. In April 2015, there were over 3,600 complaints, 351 investigations and 11 arrests for wrongdoing… and that’s just in Florida alone! So while there are reputable moving companies, there are shady operators out there too, so tune in to get Terry’s tips on how to protect yourself while moving.

Terry informs us that people are also changing how they approach home buying… millennials, for example, prefer homes that support their values, healthier lifestyles and the environment – and view homes in ways similar to how they view investing in the stock market. Finally, Terry tells us who’s responsible for home related damages on golf-course facing properties.
