Here are the official #OrlandoRealEstate market results for April 2019. I came up with much higher sales at just over 3,700 and a higher median price of $239,900, so I don't know what the discrepancy is.

  In Brevard County, our area code is 321. This came about because we are the "Space Coast" of Florida, and it comes from 3...2...1...blast off. For a while now, many of our 321 area code numbers have been going to the Orlando area. This is because the Orlando area code of 407 has been running out of numbers and they have been taking some of ours. Well, that will change as of June 4, 2019. Orlando will be getting the new layover area code of 689. I was in telecom back in the olden days before I got into real estate and I remember when all area codes had a 1 or 0 in the middle. How strange these new numbers look to me...

You have spent days looking for that dream home…you find it!  You buy it. You do inspections, get a mortgage, order a survey and secure insurance.  So now you are happy and can’t wait to move into your perfect home. Except… After signing the closing documents, you go look at the house and it does not look the same.  Your agent hands you a gift card and tells you what a wonderful property you bought…you are puzzled…and not so happy. Appliances that you thought were to stay with the house are missing… Seller took the waterbed so now carpet is missing where the bed was. There are holes in the wall where the pictures were.  The inground pool is green and the grass is 3 feet high. Seller agreed to repaint the family room and instead did some spot touch ups with gloss paint on the walls that ...

Truth about Florida’s Real Estate Flippers is something most home buyer are not aware of. Home Buyers love pretty houses…buyers like new stuff.  Buyers like to see updated homes. But is the “new camouflage” really worth it? Are these renovations hiding more secrets than home buyers suspect?…you better believe it!. True stories below…   What is House Flipping?   House Flipping is a quick-profit strategy in which an investor purchases real estate under market value and improves the property in order to sell at a higher price. A flip house is defined as a home that is bought and sold within 12 months. How fast a house will sell depends upon the curb appeal of the property.  Statistics show that “move-in-ready” homes sell 12% faster.   Orlando has a very healthy real estate market, which i...

      Let’s face it, we have all had failures. No matter how hard we tried, some things just didn't work out.  As Real Estate professionals, I think it’s ok to admit that there were challenges that we weren't able to overcome. That’s how we learn and grow and become better sales people and better leaders.  "Acknowledging your struggles and shortcomings can be very beneficial" says Harvard Business School Assistant Professor Alison Wood Brooks.  “This can be inspiring for others to admit you made mistakes along the way” Brooks co-wrote the February 2018 working paper, Mitigating Malicious Envy: Why Successful People Should Reveal Their Failures, with HBS doctoral students Karen Huang and Nicole Abi-Esber and professors Ryan W.

Slower sales and slower price appreciation highlight the December 2018 #OrlandoRealEstate market results. Look for more of the same in 2019, in my opinion. I am expecting flat sales and a return to historically typical appreciation after nearly eight years of double digit increases.Check out this brief video detailing December's market results.

We love to visit The Wilderness Lodge in Orlando.  This is one of the most beautiful Disney hotels in my opinion.  We try to stay there at least once during the year and visit every Christmas to admire the amazing Christmas tree that they have all decked out with wilderness and native American themed ornaments. We enjoyed a casual dinner at the Whispering Canyon Cafe and a few cocktails before dinner at The Territory Lounge.What I love about this hotel is the casual vibe in a family friendly atmosphere.  We have stayed here with my daughter Megan and her friends when they were growing up and have really enjoyed this hotel for many years.  The staff is very friendly and accomodating.  Another of our favorites, for "very" special ocassions is the Grand Floridian which is also a Disney Hot...
