Here in Palm Bay Florida in Brevard County many buyers are still sitting on the fence...not knowing what to do.  What should I do, they ask?  Should I buy now? Should I rent?  Should I wait?  Is the market going to continue on the decline?  When is the market going to change? All of these are excellent questions...if only we knew exactly how the market was going to respond. My question is, What are you waiting for?  If prices decline, but interest rates begin to go up due to the recession, with fear of inflation, then what were you waiting for?  It may just be a wash.  Lower prices + higher rates = Unnecessary money paid out in rent, because they waited, and could have owned? I did a little research myself to see if homes today truly are affordable here in Melbourne Florida located in B...

Is this it?  Is this the turn in the market that we have been telling buyers about? Are interest rates heading up?  Is it truly time for buyers to get off the fence and take that step to buy NOW before rates go up? This week the Federal Reserve opted not to cut the Fed Funds Rate again.  In the past, a cut in the Fed Funds rate often times was followed by a drop in mortgage interest rates.  However, that has just not always been the case, recently, as there has been so much money lost in all sectors of the banking and real estate industry.  We have seen rates sometimes fluctuating on a daily basis. But, what about the Fed's decision this week?  The Fed has been aggressively cutting interest rates, hoping to avoid recession.  They opted to not cut the Fed funds rate at all. What does thi...

Palm Bay Palm Bay is a growing community of approximately 100,000 that sits just south of Melbourne and in the Southeast portion of Brevard County or , “The Space Coast.” It includes large tracts of land both east and west of I-95, some frontage on the Indian River Lagoon (which is the ICW or Intracoastal Waterway), and on the east shades into adjoining (and currently more rural) residential areas of Malabar, Grant, and Micco extending south to Sebastian.

Did you know that you can cut years off of your mortgage and save thousands?  By making one additional principal payment each year on your 30 year fixed rate mortgage, you can cut approximately 8 years* off of the length of your loan and save tens of thousands of dollars. Have you heard about bi weekly mortgage payments?  These are when your mortgage payment amount is divided in half and you make the payment every 2 weeks, in effect adding one additional payment to your loan by the end of the year. Often times they cost a hefty fee to set up and the lending institution charges a monthly fee to process the payment. You can create the same effect by making an additional mortgage payment each year.** Are you thinking that you just don't have the extra money to mail in an additional princip...

As s landlord, I am often asked the question...should I rent to tenants with a foreclosure or a bankruptcy? And often times people are shocked at my response... Every tenant should be looked at on an individual basis. What is the reason for the bankruptcy or the foreclosure? Did they get caught up in the sub prime mortgage mess and their taxes, insurance and interest rate adjusted up? I know many people that were comfortable and able to pay their mortgage payments until their payments went through the ceiling. I am a landlord and have been since 1996. I have no problem with renting to tenants that have credit blemishes. The right ones make good long term tenants. What was their previous payment history on their last rental? How long have they been at their job? I know many good hard wor...
