orlando real estate: Realtor tips - Protecting yourself when working with buyers - 08/15/08 11:18 AM
The following are some tips for Realtors® when working with buyers.  If you are a buyer, then you know you have a good Realtor® when they make you follow these steps.  If they don't make you follow these steps that tells you something about your Realtor® too.
With the high inventory of homes for sale, it has been a buyer's market for quite a while now.  Today the Realtor® who has access to a steady stream of qualified buyers is in a golden position.  The issue that most often plagues buyer agents is working with a buyer only to have them flake … (7 comments)

orlando real estate: Central Florida's depressed real estate areas - 08/05/08 10:26 AM
Wow!  I was out showing properties last week in South Orlando.  I typically do not get in that direction often because my office is across town a few miles north of Orlando in Altamonte Springs.  I was literally stunned at what I saw.
Granted, I am very aware that some areas of town are more depressed than others.  But I could not believe what is going on out there.  I drove through several gated neighborhoods with nice homes.  Homes built just 2 or 3 years ago, big, spacious, 2500 square feet+ homes with swimming pools. 
What I saw was house after house after house … (3 comments)

orlando real estate: Flip this house - Post #14 - 06/14/08 10:06 AM
I have good news to report.
After about 4 months of marketing, some price reductions, and some praying, we did get what appears to be a solid contract at a reasonable price on this house about a week and a half ago.  The buyer did come through the MLS via another Realtor. The buyer is obtaining a VA loan through a local bank. The inspections and appraisal were done earlier this week. Now we are in the process of making a few minor repairs that always come up as a result of the inspection. If all goes as planned the property will close during … (3 comments)

orlando real estate: Market statistics for April 2008 in Orange & Seminole County FL - 05/14/08 01:51 AM
The latest monthly market statistics for Orange County and Seminole County, FL have been posted by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association for the month ending April 2008.  Link to statistics.   
The trend from previous months has continued, and that is a good thing in my opinion.  The overall listing inventory has declined for the 4th month in a row and has not increased beyond the 26,000ish mark for now 10 months in a row.  This trend of a decline is very slight, but it is a decline.  Unfortunately, the decline is mainly from listings expiring or getting withdrawn and not from properties selling.  … (2 comments)

In the first article, I discussed the law changes to property taxes and homeowners insurance.  In this article, I will go over the rest of the changes. Like I had said before, I am not going to discuss any bills that did not pass, and I am not going to discuss any bills that do not affect real estate or mortgages. So here is what else I could find that passed and his headed to the governor's desk for his signature ...
