Cash for Keys

by Justin Willard

Cash for Keys

Recently our number of Cash for Keys assignments in Pembroke Pines and Southwest Broward County has increased significantly. So, I thought I would write a quick blog post to explain what cash for keys is and how the process works. 

Cash for Keys, or Relocation Assistance Money, is a tool that many REO Asset Managers utilize to incentivize the occupants to vacate the premises. Most of the time, this occurs after a home has been foreclosed on or acquired by the bank through some other means.  The process usually begins with the Realtor representing the asset management company or bank going to the home and posting a notice to the occupants.  The goal is to have the occupants contact the Realtor and make arrangements to meet and discuss a move out timeline.  During the meeting, the Realtor may offer a cash incentive, "Cash for Keys", to the occupant to move out by a specific date.  Once the Realtor and the occupant come to an agreement, a "Move Out Agreement" or contract is formulated and signed by both parties.  The agreement stipulates the timeline as well as all other conditions for the turnover of the property. Common conditions include leaving the home free of debris and personal property and in broom swept condition. The keys to the home must also be turned over to the Realtor in order to consummate the deal. 

On the day of move, out the Realtor will return to the home and inspect the property to determine if the occupant has complied with the contractual terms. If so, the Realtor provides the occupant with a cashiers check for the agreed upon amount and the occupant signs off that they received the check.  From that point forward the Realtor secures the property and notifies the bank.

A Pembroke Falls Fourth of July

The Fourth of July at Pembroke Falls in Pembroke Pines, Florida

On Sunday, July 4, 2010, the community of Pembroke Falls, located in Pembroke Pines, Florida, held its annual Independence Day Celebration.  The event took place at the Pembroke Falls Clubhouse Park located to the east of the Recreation Center next to the basketball courts. The celebration occurred from 1pm to 3pm and was a smashing hit with residents, families, children and guests.  There was something for everyone at the party.  Children had the opportunity to slide down giant inflatable slides, ride a mechanical train around the park, jump and play in the bounce house, take a spin on the twirling teacup ride, try to soak their favorite Athletic Director in the dunk tank, test their skills at traditional carnival games such as the water balloon toss, football toss, and pitching games.  The adults joined in the fun by conversing with neighbors and guests and supervising the little ones.  They all gobbled up the hot dogs, ice cream, and candy that was available for sale while listening to the classic oldies being spun by the DJ.  The sun was shining during the event and people were soaking it up. After enjoying the festivities, the participants headed over to the Recreation Center for a dip in the refreshing pool.  This is just another example of why Pembroke Falls is one of the best places to live in South West Broward County, Florida.
