Today while I was in Palm-Aire I witnessed a Google Street View car very similar to the one shown in the photo driving in Cypress Estates. Street View in Google Maps lets you explore places around the world through 360-degreestreet-level imagery. You can check out restaurants, visit neighborhoods, or plan your next trip. I am pretty sure that I am going to be able to be seen in the shots as I happended to be standing in a parking lot on East Cypress Drive at the time. Wouldn't that be a kick!

I don't know about you, but I am not a big fan of Day Light Savings time, especially in that first week or so when my body has not acclimated to the difference. However there are some definite perks... 1. I can now exercise safely well into the evening. Personally I tend to bike a lot in the summer time because it is easier to make time late in the day. 2. If I want to sleep in on the weekends, I can because the sun is less likely to wake me up. 3. Waking up before the sunrises. Some might see this as a drawback, however I have witnessed some breath-taking sunrises in the last week and for that I am appreciative.

According to an article yesterday in the Sun Sentinel newspaper, a new 10 acre Sports Complex is potentially in the works on the northwest side of Atlantic Boulevard and Powerline Road. The land was donated by Palm-Aire Associates, which also plans to build a 907 unit project at 3401 W. Atlantic Blvd. However, there is no guarntee that the project will be approved by the city advisors given the overall costs. "The city has a few options for the property. One option calls for a football field, a six-lane running track, parking, bleachers that would seat 1,300 people, a plaza, track and field area, and a multi-use facility with two access points to the property from the north and south. The project would cost between $4.9 million and $5.6 million, depending on whether real grass or artifi...

Many people are shocked when I tell them the vast majority of the sales I did last year were cash sales. In fact 85% of my sales in 2010 were cash sales. Of course I'm happy about it. Financing can be tough these days. It also says a couple of other things that may surprise you. The discount you think you will get with a cash offer might not be as big as you expected. It also means that there is a lot of cash out there waiting to be spent. I was inspired to write on this subject because of some recent examples of buyers making some very aggressive offers. Some as much as 40% below asking. I think they were even a little insulted that I didn't want to waste our time even writing it up. Making an agressive offer is fine by me but once you are more than 20% off the asking price the possib...

You call on the telephone and say that you are interested in me - you even ask that a chaperone accompany to my place of residence. You look me over with a fine tooth comb - you check me once and perhaps twice or even thrice - You may even desire to have me inspected by a professional until you prove that I am worthy  and nice- You also place a desire upon me to show your willingness to purchase me - but so far I am owned by another...name your price? How much would you pay for me to take me away from my present owner - a fair market price you say? In this time of my life - only a a buyer who must have me shall own me - all others are just playing a game - A real buyer will own me and make me a real estate - make me a legal destination all the same!

The Silver Thatch Atlantic condos are two high rise buildings located on the west side of A1A in at 525 and 531 N Ocean Blvd in Pompano Beach. They are connected by a parking garage and shared amenities like pool and tennis courts. There are a total of 361 units in the two buildings. Both buildings are 18 stories tall. Most of the units have ocean views. The views improve as the floors get higher. And of course the units closer to the east sides of the building get an even better view. Don't confuse Silver Thatch Atlantic with Silver Thatch Intracoastal which is located close by on Riverside Dr and overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. I think Silver Thatch has become an especially good value because for the last two plus years it has been going through a massive $18,000,000 renovation ...

A huge development and precedent set in Florida.  Palm Aire Condo Association located in Pompano Beach, FL filed a foreclosure action about a year ago, and claimed that Wells Fargo purposely delayed foreclosure proceedings.  Next step, Palm Aire filed a lawsuit against Wells Fargo, and a judge awarded Palm Aire Condo Association the property without any mortgage.  This is a huge precedent set, and I am sure many associations will follow suit.  Maybe the banks will start taking notice and not hurting these associations which in turn hurts the homeowners in these associations. What are your thoughts?
