Restaurant Review - Primanti Brothers is the Best Pizza in Broward - 03/31/08 07:19 PM
Just thinking about this place makes my mouth water. If you live in South Florida and you enjoy a great slice of pizza then you have to go to Primanti Bros. in Fort Lauderdale or Oakland Park. Originally started in 1933 in Pittsburgh (known as a die hard Steelers fans hangout) these guys really know how to make a pizza great. It doesn't matter if you like plain cheese, mushroom, or the 5 topping special on your plate - it is all phenomenal at Primanti's. It isn't the pizza that delivers too. I think all of the pasta dishes are all delicious, although I always seem (0 comments)
The Power of Advertising - Palm Aire Gardens Just Rented! - 03/31/08 07:01 PM
I was speaking with one of my clients today about the delay in renting out his property. Like a lot of listings it received a lot of showings and interest when it was just put on the market, but then things seeem to quiet down and that listing kind of goes towards the back of your mind, if you let it. However I have a great relationship with this gentleman and we talk every couple of days to review what is going on. I really felt the need to help him find a good tenant quickly because his last tenant, who rented (0 comments)

Which Upgrades Bring Sellers the Best Return on Investment? - 03/31/08 01:25 PM
It is a great idea for sellers who have decided to wait for better market conditions to upgrade their homes in the meantime. The two best upgrades that you can make are for your kitchen and your bathrooms. Typically homeowners can recap 75-100 percent of the cost of remodeling their kitchen and bathrooms. It also makes your home much more inticing to potential buyers and eliminates a lot of objections during the house shopping process. In my 9 years of working with buyers I find that there are two types of buyers. Those who are willing to do major work, and those that just want to move (0 comments)
Did you hear about the potential changes in buying requirements for Palm Aire Condo 1 properties along North Palm Aire Drive? - 03/28/08 10:30 AM
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 (0 comments)

Palm Aire properties in Pompano Beach are selling again! Real Estate has a pulse. - 03/26/08 02:54 PM
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.

Restaurant Review: Canyon in Fort Lauderdale - 03/26/08 07:28 AM
Last night my fiancee and I went to Canyon, one of the absolute best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. We discovered Canyon about a year and a half ago on Zagat's, the restaurant rating system and fell in love with it upon first bite. Located in the coolest section of Fort Lauderdale next to the Gateway theater on Sunrise Blvd (just west of the Galleria Mall) Canyon is one of the many establishments there worth patronizing. If you have a to wait and you have ecclectic tastes in furniture and clothing, be sure to walk around the adjacent plaza for some fo the neatest stores that (0 comments)

South Florida Real Estate Update - Prices on Properties for Sale drops - 03/24/08 04:16 PM
The good news is that homes sales increased unexpected last month on a national scale. Sales actually rose by 2.9 percent. The bad news is that home sales in South Florida fell in both price and amount of properties sold. Last February Broward County's sales for the month were 360, while the year before the month of February 498 home sales. Palm Beach County's sales went from 401 last month to 560 this time last year. Second to that is that the median price of a single family house in Broward County dropped 15 percent compared from last February to this February, which in real terms means from (0 comments)

Great News for Buyers in Pompano Beach properties & All of South Florida Real Estate, Mortgage Rates dropped this week! - 03/21/08 07:20 AM
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 (3 comments)
Cypress Bend in Pompano Beach has great condos for sale - 03/19/08 03:31 PM
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 (0 comments)

New Two Bedroom Condo for Sale in Palm Aire Pompano Beach - 03/17/08 03:53 PM
A large two bedroom two bathroom garden apartment was just listed in Palm-Aire. It has some seriously nice upgrades and has a completely different feel than a highrise building. A garden apartment is a two story building of usually twelve properties total. There is no lobby and no elevator. It is convenient because the parking lot is much smaller and you park your car steps from your front door. It offers all the savings of a condo, but more of the feel of a single family home with its private entry.

If I have a medical condition involving my heart I do not go to a general practitioner, a pediatrician, or a proctologist. I go to a cardiologist because his or her sole focus is on that which is most important to me in that moment. Especially when it could be a matter of life or death.

Is it a good time to buy in Palm Aire? - 03/11/08 03:53 PM
I speak to people every day who say that they plan to buy in a couple of months once "the market hits bottom". I have news for you, the bottom is here and the smart folks are buying right now. I am not saying that everything you see is a worthwhile buy, but if you are paying attention to certain markets and your timing is right you can find the best deals of the year right now! The conventional wisdom of most real estate pundits say that the market will start to recover by mid to late 2008, which would certainly be a big breath of fresh (1 comments)
