tampa: You Snooze, You Loose in Today's Housing Market - 01/25/10 06:01 AM
Are you familiar with the Idiom You Snooze, You Loose? You most probably have herd or will hear this term more than once in your lifetime. My use of the term here means that if you let yourself get distracted from buying a home today you are going to kick yourself in the butt tomorrow for not taking advantage of today's housing market. Home prices are at an all time low, mortgage interest rates at an all time low, and the government wants to give you money, $6,500 and $8,000 tax credit for buying a home. If you snooze to long, … (0 comments)

tampa: Perfect Real Estate Trifecta - 03/04/09 05:59 AM
I attended a brainstorming session that my agents were having in the office this morning. They were trying to come up with ideas for a Buyers Seminar. One of the conversations led to, why would anyone buy a home in this market? One response was; This is the perfect real estate trifecta: Low Mortgage Rates, Low home prices, and a $8,000 tax credit. WOW! What a great analogy. This is the information that home buyers need to hear. Not doom and gloom that the media talks about everyday. NAR is doing their part on TV with the now is a great time to … (2 comments)

tampa: Light at end of Tunnel - 02/26/09 03:11 AM
I am starting to see light at the end of the real estate tunnel. Our office sales are up over 300% for Feb 2009 comparable with Feb 2008. A definite increase in new home sales, banked owned and short sales. We have listings with multiple offers. One REO had over 15 offers. Our agents are working hard and loving it. I see a fantastic Spring and Summer buying season. If the stimulus plan does what it is supposed to do things should be wonderful all over. I'm ready to break our in a chorus of Zippity Doo Dah ZippityAy My oh my. … (5 comments)

tampa: Buy American and save a job! - 02/12/09 03:50 AM
The buzz word on the campaign trail last year was "Buy American". When you buy American you help Americans keep their jobs. Doesn't buying a home fit into the category "Buy American"? By doing so, you create a whole chain of American jobs. Congress should be focusing on getting the stimulus $$$$ to the housing industry. There would be lots of job creation here, and we would be buying American by doing so.

tampa: Tampa Florida Real Estate 2009 - 01/05/09 03:19 AM
The real estate maket in the greater Tampa area is looking great for 2009. End of year statistics for 2008 show that active resale inventory is in decline, pendings and solds are up. With interest rates hovering around 5% the 2009 real estate market in the Tampa area is positioned for continued growth. Even builder inventory is down. In some new home communities builders have no inventory and they are projecting delivery of to be built homes around second quarter 2009. The new presidents first priority is create jobs so that more people can afford to buy homes or keep the homes they have. 

tampa: Short Sale Mania - 04/29/08 02:34 AM
The media continues to focus their attention on the number of foreclosures taking place in the United States. National news  this morning had statistics on forclosures. It was reported that one out of 194 U.S. households received a foreclosure filing so far this year. More doom and gloom news for the U.S. consumer to digest. On the bright side, the one market area that they are missing reporting on is short sales. Short sale mania has made a big hit in Tampa-Bay area. The Greater Tampa Association of Realtors recently reported that one out of eleven homes for sale in Hillsborough County Florida is currently listed as a … (2 comments)
