The Orlando real estate market has started off the year quite strong.  Properties are not hard to sell but they are a challenge to buy.  Most of the good deals sell almost immediately and often with multiple offers.  Take a look at the latest group of deals that we sold in February.               Selma                                            Aurora                                                    Neuse 1.  Selma Road, Longwood, FL 32750.  4 bedroom, 2 bathroom concrete block with a carport. This home was a fix and flip deal.  It was acquired by the sellers as a bank REO and quickly fixed it up.  A landlord investor bought it for $80,000 which is a heck of a deal for a 4 bedroom home in a great school district. 2.  Cypress wood, Winter Springs, FL 32708.  This 3/2/2 remodeled home w...

Hi folks.  Dealing with Short Sales all day can be very stressful and frustrating. In my market I have worked as long as 2 years on a short sale that sold for $50,000. I’m sure I worked for far less than minimum wage. But hey.....I learned a long time ago that I get paid by the year. Not the transaction. And great testimonials like the one below make it all worthwhile. Bryant,   Thanks so much for everything you did. I’m still in awe of what you accomplished. I would be happy to speak directly to any potential client directly if ever needed. Please know that you will always be the first and only name that will come up if I am ever asked to refer a realtor. I’ve never worked with anyone like you and I truly think God was looking out for us when he sent us your way.   Thanks again and aga...

What does buying a home "AS IS" mean? There are many misconceptions about what an "as is" home sale is.  Some think that "as is" means that the buyer has to buy the property in "as it is" condition with all its problems.  Others erroneously think that buying an"as is" property means that the buyer cannot do inspections and/or the seller does not need to disclose deficiencies. NOT SO...buying an "as is" home  ONLY means that the seller wants to sell the property "as it is" and is putting everyone on notice that seller is not willing to do any repairs. Buyer still has the right to do inspections for anything that they wish as long as the inspections do not damage the property, and they still have the right to re-negotiate the contract with the seller for anything that is important to them...

Alaqua Lakes Real Estate sales, accoring to the Mid Florida MLS, for the first month of the jear 2012  have been very slow indeed. 50 % of the inventory is distressed which translates into further decline in values. Good new for home buyers, Alaqua Lakes real estate is becoing more attractive and should sell faster.

I thought grass was supposed to be green... I thought grass was supposed to be green... http://www.seminolecountyfl.gov/extensionservices/adults/fynclasses_principles.aspx I might've slept through parts of Colorin' class when I was a tyke, but I'm pretty sure grass is supposed to be green.  I mean, how can it be greener on the other side if it's not your basic green to start with?  Hmmm.... For those outside the area, the good Lord has been holding back on the liquid sunshine lately.  When you can't remember the last time it rained, you've gotta bust out your wallet or the ol' Crayolas if you're looking so see something green. And this is a good time to discuss lawn care- and how tenants can do their part in keeping lawns looking their best in the worst of dry seasons.  Seminole County ...

PURCHASE AND REHAB YOUR HOME IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA WITH THE FHA 203(K) LOAN - Most home buyers are turned off at the sight or even thought of buying a fixer-upper; a foreclosure or an older home today. However, educated and informed home buyers are utilizing the FHA 203(k) loan to buy their new home and fix it up with no additional out-of-pocket expense. The FHA 203(k) loan is a tool that savvy home buyers, successful contractors, Realtors and mortgage originators have been using since 1978. An FHA 203(k) loan is very similar to the traditional FHA loan. The only real difference is that with the FHA 203(k) loan, the home buyer is adding money to their mortgage balance to finance-in any repair/improvement cost. Whereas the traditional FHA loan requires that certain repairs be done before t...

I would like to commend Brownie's Wastewater Solutions (of Orlando) for saving the day this past weekend! All 6 of my toilets had stopped working on Saturday, so I called for service. They informed me they could be out Sunday morning...not a moment too soon since I woke up to sewage lying in the bottom of all showers. In the meantime, I was preparing for a baby shower that I was putting on for my daughter-in-law. 2 trucks showed up Sunday at 10:00 AM, and the 2 men worked feverishly to get me up and running again in time for the guests to arrive. Turns out I was a year behind on having my septic tanks cleaned out, as well as having a burned out pump and alarm! Let this be a lesson to all who rely on septic for plumbing...get it done once every 3 years! ;-)

Would You Like Some Humility With That? "#3 Property Manager in Florida" Active Rain says.  "#9 Property Manager in America", Active Rain says.  That's nice.  We must be careful and try not to get caught up in Active Rain numbers, though- for sooner or later, you're going to be sitting in a meeting as I was this morning and thinking to yourself: Would You Like Some Humility With That? For background purposes, fellow Active Rain member and active blogger Jeremy Wrenn from Wake Forest-land had once suggested that I might do well in joining a BNI (Business Network International) group.  I forget the exact number, but I seem to recall that he gets about 1/3 of his business through BNI referrals. "Great", I said.  Then I asked myself "What the heck is BNI?"- as I'd never heard of them. I did...
