Today's Star banner had a great article on home sales in Florida. 
It seems that in addition to being a great place to live, Ocala had the greatest gain in home sales in the state in May, as well as the lowest home prices in all of Florida!  This makes Ocala a great place to buy, or if you need to, to sell.

ocala florida real estate: That’s O.K. . . . Before I became a Realtor® I worked as a cat wrangler . . . - 03/17/09 03:35 AM
A common theme here in Active Rain is the poor treatment of the buyer agents, these poor folks receive 85% of the liability in exchange for 50% (or less depending on the attitude of the listing agent) of the pay.  Sadly, the term cooperating broker is not in some brokers' and agents' vocabulary.
 One area that has increased exponentially in our area is the number of expired listings.  This can be a wealth of listing opportunities, but it can be very revealing as to why the listings did not sell in the first place.  One of the most revealing areas is … (1 comments)

ocala florida real estate: MR. BAUER'S HAMMER - 09/08/07 08:58 AM
Years ago before we were in real estate we lived in a rental.  We were care takers for a commercial property in exchange for reduced rent.  Our responsibilities were generally lawn, yard and minor exterior maintenance.

My wife Sara had remained back in NY to close our house there (we had a home in Ocala under contract) and I had to get started.  After signing … (0 comments)

ocala florida real estate: ARE YOU ANY BETTER THAN THE PHONE COMPANY? - 07/11/07 06:20 AM
Just before thanksgiving we had a home built.  Just before moving in I had to make arrangements for utilities.  The big decision was the television, Internet and telephone service.  I priced individual and bundled service from the local cable monopoly that serviced our new neighborhood, then I called the phone company.  They checked my record and told me that I could continue the same package I presently had for just $45 per month plus a $55 fee for installation.
