Did you know that each year, 700,000 Americans relocate to new towns to retire? Thats a bunch of real estate transactions. I found a very helpful magazine,, "Where to Retire", that is geared toward helping people with retirement relocation decisions in the US.
Where to Retire editor Mary Lu Abbott said St. Augustine possesses qualities important to today’s retirees. “Its colorful past as the nation’s oldest city lures many to St. Augustine, where beautiful beaches and an easygoing lifestyle add to its appeal. Retirees find it’s less crowded than some parts of Florida and not as hot, and golfers relish (2 comments)
With more than 1 million U.S. homes in some phase of the foreclosure process, great deals abound. Florida has more than their fair share, that's for sure. So many buyers, mostly from out of state contact me looking for the "steal of a deal" (really one actually used that term!) 2 or 3 bedroom home (not condo) with views of the ocean - does not HAVE to be Oceanfront, for no more than $150,000.
Really? Are you kidding me? Where does this type of property exist? Surely they do not…not in Northeast Florida, not in St. Augustine. Foreclosures can (1 comments)
Charming patio home on one of the nicest, most quiet cul-de-sacs in Marsh Creek Country Club. Conveniently located close to the back gate, this home is tucked away at the end of the street, backing to a private nature preserve. Make this your own island paradise with the addition of your custom swimming pool. The spacious back yard gives you ample room!

Newly painted on the inside, this home is in great (0 comments)

Vacant homes are hard to sell. They present unique challenges for Homeowners and Realtors alike.
Vacant homes holding costs are great due to repair bills, utility bills, landscape and pool maintenance. A vacant home is subject to unmitigated deterioration reducing property value and the opportunity for a good presentation. Issues may include: leaks, irrigation issues, loss of expensive landscaping and the breakdown of home systems such as HVAC and plumbing. These are common problems associated with vacant properties. Insurance rates can be as much as 7 times higher for a vacant home, if it is insurable at all. (2 comments)
