While at a closing last week I was speaking to a couple who was purchasing some Florence, AL real estate to build their home on. Our conversation moved towards accumulating and investing money. They were of the mind of investing their money into CD’s and interest bearing accounts which is a very safe and smart thing to do. But, as of this writing these types of investments pay very poorly with inflation almost exceeding your moneys growth. Upon learning their investment ideals and understanding I suggested that they look into investing into (0 comments)

A few months back I remember meeting with a couple that wanted to sell their apartment complex in Florence, AL. During our meeting we discussed many things that related to their property. While discussing price I asked how they had arrived at their asking price. They said that the previous real estate agent had looked at the tax records and based the asking price on the assessed value (tax record). Not a very accurate appraisal of the properties value. Based on my experience with local assessed values, they can over and under estimate a properties value by as much as (2 comments)
A few weeks ago we listed a really unique home on 1145 Wildwood Park Road in Florence, AL. It’s called a Lustron Home. Lustron manufactured one of the first prefabricated homes in the USA. They had a plant based in Columbus, Ohio after WWII where they manufactured these all metal homes. Once the parts and pieces were manufactured, they were loaded onto specifically designed trailers and trucks that rolled down an assembly line as the parts were loaded.
This “Home Hauling Truck” weighed in at 46,000 pounds when fully loaded! When the home kit arrived at its (0 comments)
