Selling Your Home? How to Get the Most you Possibly Can

The single biggest issue on most homesellers’ minds when selling their home is how to achieve the highest sale price. And yet most homeowners feel disadvantaged and ill-equipped to achieve this goal. Pricing a home is an imperfect science to begin with, and market factors can cause large swings. So can the skill of the person responsible for negotiating.

However, negotiating effectively doesn’t have to be as difficult or scary as you would expect. Like anything else, if you have a proven system to follow – and know the signals and the language – you can successfully cause the tables to turn in your favour. Who better to borrow these skills from than professional negotiators who daily sit across the table to try to outbargain their opponent.

The system these professionals follow has been outlined in a new FREE special report for homesellers which outlines the 4 most common mistakes most homesellers make when negotiating the price they will sell their home for. One area resident credits his knowledge gained from the information revealed in this free special report with netting him thousands more than his original list price.

Order this report NOW to ensure you get the highest price you can when you sell your home.

A Tragic Accident – How the Treasure Coast got its name

The Treasure Coast Treasure on display

Why we are called The Treasure Coast, Exhibit returns – Island Condos on Hutchinson Island, St Lucie County Condos for Sale

Three hundred years ago, a fleet of treasure-laden ships crashed on the shore between Sebastian and northern Martin County.

In 1715, the newly married king of Spain, Philip V, ordered two loaded treasure fleets to return to Spain immediately.

Queen Elisabeth would not consummate the marriage until her treasures, which included chests full of jewelry such as a 74-carat emerald ring, a heart of 130 pearls, and a rosary of pure coral, were in hand.

Two separate fleets set sail, one of five ships, known as the New Spain Flota, loaded with gold, silver and emeralds from Mexico; the other, a convoy of six vessels known as the Tierra Firme, carrying chests of silver and gold and pearls from South America, convened in Havana, Cuba to regroup, restock and combine forces for the long voyage back to Spain. A French warship, the Grifon, sailed with the fleet as a patrol ship to protect against piracy.

The flotilla set sail for Spain at sunrise July 24, 1715. The estimated value of its cargo between $200 million and $1 billion in today’s dollars.

It was five days of smooth sailing for the almost 2,500 people on board as the fleet slowly sailed on gentle breezes and the natural currents of the Gulf stream. Experienced officers and crew members sensed the proverbial calm before the storm July 29, when winds became so placid, the majestic ships were almost still in the gray sea -captains’ logs tell of a strange silence.

Through the night, the storm encroached and the swells and winds grew stronger. The massive wooden vessels groaned and creaked as they dipped and rolled. Cargo was jarred loose and rolled about the decks. The next day the skies grew dark by early afternoon. Visibility was so poor, the fleet lit its lanterns to try to guide each other into the wind, away from the storm and clear of the jagged reef and shoals of our coast. They were unsuccessful.

Before sunrise on July 31, the storm hit the fleet full force, all sunk except for the Grifon, which strayed from the official course early on and survived, the entire fleet was lost. Accounts vary, but between 700 to 1,000 people died that night.

As dawn broke, the hurricane was over and the estimated 1,500 survivors tried to assess the scope of the catastrophe. Wreckage and lifeless bodies were strewn along 70 miles of the beaches we now enjoy. At the time, our shore was desolate, home to nothing more than rattlesnakes, disease-carrying mosquitoes and Ais Indians.

It was the end of August when several ships loaded with supplies and equipment began salvage efforts.

Most of the treasure ships had wrecked in shallow enough waters for free divers to recover some of chests full of gold, silver and other riches. Word spread about the recovery and pirates also came to our coast.

The salvage operation was abandoned in 1719. Accounts of the recovery of the king’s treasure vary from 30 to 80 percent.

Experts believe two thirds of the bounty remained on our beaches.


Much of this story went untold until the early 1960s, when Kip Wagner, an Indian River County resident and amateur beachcomber, recovered a silver coin known as a piece of eight from the 1715 fleet near the Sebastian Inlet. Wagner did extensive research on the doomed fleet and, with the help of the Spanish Archives, began to tell the story.

Wagner formed a salvage crew with famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher and by the end of 1964 they had brought up about $3 million in gold and silver coins, jewelry and artifacts from wreck sites in Sebastian and Fort Pierce.

Professional treasure hunters continue salvage efforts today finding gold, silver, cannons, porcelain and other items from seven known wreck sites.

Amateur treasure hunters continue to have success with metal detectors along the dune lines of our beaches. Steve Carr, a retired firefighter/paramedic and part-time history teacher, has found more than 1,000 artifacts over 30 years.

He found 14 coins on a St. Lucie County beach as recently as last winter.  Take a walk on our beautiful beaches after a storm – Who knows what YOU may find?
