Places to retire.This is a perfect time to think about the future. The Holiday Season and the end of the year are quickly approaching. We often think about both the past and future when each year changes. U.S. News & World Report is out with their annual best places to retire addition (for 2022). Florida is well represented with eight of the top 10 spots. The reasons (aside from great weather) are lower housing costs, zero state taxes, positive relationships with police and sheriff departments and lower infringement on personal freedoms. This year Melbourne, FL moved up to number Four on the list of great retirement destinations.Some of the reasons Melbourne (and the Space Coast in general) rates so high: Low density traffic patterns (people here complain about being caught in traffic f...

Terran Orbital is building the worlds largest satellite manufacturing facility here on the Florida Space Coast! The company announced it chose the Space Coast because of the amazing "ready to work" talent that will allow the company to ramp up quickly. The 660,000 square foot factory will be capable of producing “thousands of different types of space vehicles per year,” including 1000 complete satellites and over 1 million satellite components per year, the company said in a statement.The new facility will create about 2100 new jobs with the facility anchored in Merritt Island near the Kennedy Space Center. Below is a rendering of the facility plans:This is another incredible coup for our great Governor Ron DeSantis! Terran Orbital will be investing over 300 million dollars into facilit...

This beautiful golf and lake condo in Melbourne, FL sold in a matter of hours. The interesting story here was the buyer actually strolled up to the condo while my photographer was taking pictures. She asked if she could take a quick walk through. She looked around while the outside pictures were being taken.She let me know she had been looking with three other agents and none of them would call her back. I asked if she had been pre-approved for a loan. She let me know she had a letter and could send it to me. I asked if she wanted to work with one of the Realtors who had previously shown her property. She said NO. She was unhappy no of them would call her. She gave me her phone number and asked me to call her when it went on the market.The next day I gave her a call and told her the hom...

With the real estate market in many areas seeing a strong seller's advantage, many sellers feel they do not need a full service real estate broker. Some may opt for a limited service, input only agents.Here are a few reasons this can be a big mistake:1. The limited service agent will simply put the property in the MLS: They will not be responsible for negotiation. This leaves the seller to negotiate against a professional buyer's agent. I promise you nothing pleases me more when I am representing a buyer. I LOVE when the seller opts for a limited service agent. With my 30+ years of negotiation experience, my buyer will likely love the final results.2. No frills photos: The limited service agent may help set up photos, but they will likely not help stage the home, give advice on potentia...

Over the years I am sure we have all run into sellers who want to pick the buyers of the home they have for sale. This particular seller told me she did not care who the buyers were, as long as they had horses. I explained to the seller that I cannot limit buyers for ANY reason, much less tell them they are not welcome without a horse (crazy, right!). Well, I quickly went under contract on the beautiful home. it featured 4 bedrooms PLUS a formal study, a beautiful master suite, open, remodeled kitchen, a beautiful covered porch, 3+ acres of land, a four stall horse barn and much more. It was priced at $865k and we received multiple offers!Now here was the problem:Three offers came in. The first was above list price with an escalation clause and no contingency. The second was above list ...
