Palm Aire Condo Association #1 is currently trying to change its rules for purchasing & refinancing condos, villas, and townhouses along North Palm Aire Drive. Last night there was a big meeting at the Herb Skolnick Community Center so that residents could find out more information and ask questions regarding the changes that the Board of Directors is trying to enact.Several years ago PACC #1 changed their bylaws so that all buyers who were taking out a mortgage had to put down at least 20% in order to get condominium approval. However, given the foreclosure crisis which is occuring across the United States there have been several owners within Palm Aire that are defaulting on their loans and also cease to make their quarterly maintenance payments.When maintenance payments are not made ...

In a recent survey released 77 percent of adults said it is a good time to buy given that market conditions are so favorable for a qualified buyer. Availability and variety of properties have peakedSellers are giving more and greater concessions Mortgages rates are at historic lowsWith the lapse in sales many homeowners have chosen to upgrade their propertiesProperty taxes are droppingWe have seen what values can reach and now prices are down. It is only a matter of time before prices begin to increase and prospective buyers realize that they can make good long term equity by buying a quality primary residence soon.It seems that many people are now saving aggressively so they are able to buy within the next twelve months.I rented a property to a woman yesterday afternoon who said that s...

I am glad to say that real estate in Palm Aire is looking great this week. So far this week, we have sold four properties, three of which were in Palm Aire. The other was a house in Oakland Park. We are also starting to see a turnaround in phone calls and the number of keys that are going out with the agents who show our properties.It might be a random fluxuation, but we are glad to see that buyers are interesting in buying property in Pompano Beach once again.As a real estate office that has been in Pompano for twenty years, we understand that there are good periods and bad ones, but if you position yourself properly, work hard and maintain a reputation of quality service and ethics you can survive. I truly believe that. It is the smart person who turns adversity into opportunity.By th...

Misty Oaks features some of the best homes within Palm Aire. Built in the mid-1990s Misty Oaks was one of the first mixed use communities, combining townhouses and single family homes.Spacious & pet friendly townhomes with garden and golf views located on Carriage Drive are some of the largest I have seen in Broward County. As of today, March 21, 2008 there are four townhomes available from $299,000 to $525,000. One story and two story single family homes located on Misty Oaks Drive and Misty Oaks Lane. Three, four, and five bedroom homes are available with access to this small knit community's pool and playground. As of today, March 21st 2008 there are four homes on the market ranging from $375,000 to $411,000. Visit www.PalmAireRealEstate.com and click Our Listings to view those prope...

Mortgage rates on the average 30 year fixed loan dropped from 6.13% to 5.87% and the average 15 year mortgage fell from 5.6% to 5.27%. It is a breath of fresh air for many buyers who were not seeing mortgage rates come down much even though the Federal Reserve has dropped the short-term interest rate several times in the past few months. This is a good sign that the Fed's efforts to stimulate the economy are starting to take effect.Depending on your loan amount, this could significantly lower your payment by thousands or tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.With the South Florida real estate market being the hardest hit in the nation combined with favorable mortgage rates and falling property taxes, it creates a perfect storm for buyers to buy now. Whether buying a co...

I write a lot about Palm-Aire Country Club because it is such a large property in Pompano Beach, however I want to take some time out to discuss other properties. Directly across the street from Palm-Aire is a little known development called Cypress Bend.Cypress Bend is technically in Pompano Beach, however it sits just North of the border betweeen Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale. It is also located close to the cities of Oakland Park and Wilton Manors. Like Palm Aire, Cypress Bend is centrally located near both major highways. Lots of restaurants and shopping can be found nearby along Powerline Road.Cypress Bend offers some fantastic features that are not found in a lot of condos in Broward County. First and foremost, it is a pet-friendly community. Most associations allow pets (cats...
