Price has been reduced again on this building lot on Forbes Road in Zephyrhills, Florida. It is located just to the south of Proud Mockingbird Road and north of the Lynbrook Drive turn-off. The county says it can be used for either a single-family home or a modular home. However, according to them, no mobile homes can be placed here. County says lot size is just over 3/4 of an acre, but owners have no survey so buyers should confirm this parcel size if it is important to them. Due to its location just to the east of Zephyrhills and (0 comments)

Average Mortgage Interest Rates Just Barely Stay Below 5% This Week - 03/25/10 02:06 PM
Today 3/25/10, Freddie Mac reported that the average mortgage interest rate for 30 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.99% (4.99% in the southeast), up from 4.96% a week ago. The average interest rate for 15 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.34%, up from 4.33% last week. A year ago the average 30 year rate was 4.85%. Bond Rates climbed higher and mortgage interest rates went along for the ride. However, for the 4th week in a row the average interest rate is below 5%! The financial burden that consumers are carrying, in relationship to their disposible income, went down some in the 4th quarter of 2009. Was (0 comments)

Just Sold in Village Grove Subdivision in Zephyrhills, Florida - 03/22/10 05:28 PM
Our snowbirds are still here and properties are selling quickly here in Zephyrhills. While much of the country is in the middle of the economic and meteorological doldrums, I am still working with many customers who are still in the area. Things may be slow up north, but not here in the Sunshine State. As an example, I just found a buyer who purchased this home on Vulcan Circle in Zephyrhills, Florida. The new owner of this home will enjoy all of the advantages this subdivision has to offer its inhabitants. If you are thinking of selling your home or would like to live (0 comments)
Average Mortgage Interest Rates Hardly Move This Week - Remain Below 5% - 03/18/10 08:13 PM
Today 3/18/10, Freddie Mac reported that the average mortgage interest rate for 30 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.96% (4.94% in the southeast), up from 4.95% a week ago. The average interest rate for 15 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.33%, up from 4.32% last week. A year ago the average 30 year rate was 4.98%. The rates hardly changed at all this week. Not enough to really affect payments that one would make of a 15 year or 30 year fixed-rate loan. New home construction was down in February, but much of this was attributed to bad weather both in the north and the (0 comments)
Improve the Curb Appeal of Your Home to Make it Sell Quickly or Just to Improve its Looks - 03/13/10 03:51 PM
All around the country, spring is slowly arriving. We are already in March and many of you are thinking of ways to make the outside of your homes look more attractive. This is especially important if you are trying to sell your home. Nothing can hurt a home more than for the buyers to see a "blah" exterior when the drive up to it. Even before they enter the home, they are already forming a negative opinion that even a great interior may not be able to overcome. I know that we had a couple of very cold nights here in Florida (0 comments)
Average Mortgage Interest Rates Drop Just a Little Bit More says Freddie Mac - 03/11/10 08:36 PM
Today, 3/11/10, Freddie Mac reported that the average mortgage interest rate for 30 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.95% (4.94% in the southeast), down from 4.97% a week ago. The average interest rate for 15 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.32%, down from 4.33% last week. A year ago the 30 year rate was 5.03%. Mortgage interest rates dropped just a little more, again based on the forever present "mixed economic signals". Boy, I get tired of hearing that. Just once I would love to hear a government spokesperson say "based on CLEAR economic evidence"! In January of 2010 existing home sales fell 7.6%, more (0 comments)
Home Buyer Tax Credit to End Soon: National Association of Home Builders - 03/09/10 07:01 PM
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) wants potential home buyers to be aware that they still have the opportunity to take advantage of the $8,000 first-time home buyer or $6,500 repeat buyer tax credits, as long as they act quickly—the credits expire on April 30, 2010.
“It’s not too late to take advantage of the home buyer tax credit,” said NAHB Chairman Bob Jones, a builder and developer in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. “There are plenty of existing homes on the market, and even though the move-in ready newly constructed homes inventory has dwindled, builders may still be able finish (0 comments)
