orlando realtor: Great Orlando home deals we sold in January 2014 - 02/03/14 06:58 AM

orlando realtor: Market Statistics February 2009 for Orange County, FL - Orlando, Winter Park, Apopka, Ocoee, Winter Garden - 03/10/09 12:52 PM
The Orlando Regional Realtor Association ® released the market figures for Orange County and Seminole County today. For the first time in several years now, I am optimistic about where the market is headed.  We still have a long way to go by all means, but the numbers are encouraging.  Inventory continues to decrease while sales continue to remain steady.  New listings are less than there were in February 2008 and days on the market continues to decrease.  Here is a direct link to all the statistics.  Orange County market statistics.
Orange County covers Orlando, Winter Park, Maitland, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Windermere, Apopka, Belle Isle, … (2 comments)

orlando realtor: 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 realtor: Central Florida market statistics for June 2008 – Orange & Seminole Counties - 07/12/08 01:29 AM
The market statistics for June 2008 have been released for Orange County and Seminole County, Florida.  The numbers are finally showing some real change.  There is no question to me that the market bottomed out during late 2007 / early 2008.  You can see the detailed reports provided by the Orlando Regional Realtor Association at this website.
Existing home inventory levels are down another 440 properties to 24,575 - compared to 25,923 in June 2007.  New listings are down yet again for 6 months in a row now (not counting April) at 4,189.  New pending contracts are at the … (1 comments)

orlando realtor: Investor friendly real estate services in metro Orlando and Central Florida - 07/08/08 12:17 PM
The next time that a real estate agent tells you they work with investors ask them one question. "How many investment properties have you personally purchased or sold in the last 24 months?" If they answer "none" do you really think they can truly understand your needs??? At Sand Dollar Realty Group Inc. we have agents who do invest in real estate on a regular basis.
We work with investors interested in foreclosures, short sales, fixer-uppers, rentals, lease options, seller financing, no money down, and other creative real estate deals. We do our best to creatively solve real estate problems.

orlando realtor: The best investor friendly realty services in Central Florida - my pledge to you - 06/17/08 09:11 AM
Do you want the best real estate investment deals around?  With the real estate market the way it is, now is the time to buy property.  Interest rates are low, the inventory level of properties allows you to be choosy, and sellers and banks are sacrificing their properties in order to unload them.
I have lived in the Orlando area for over 3 decades and know the region inside and out.  I have personally bought or sold nearly 100 properties in the Central Florida area over the last 15 years. I have been involved in nearly 1,000 real estate transactions since I … (2 comments)

orlando realtor: The good things about today's real estate market - 05/22/08 02:32 AM
What can I say?  I won't lie.  The real estate market is definitely very tough right now, no doubt, for nearly everyone throughout the industry.  However, as in any industry there are also plenty of good things going on.  I have always been one to have a positive attitude as best I can and try and find the silver lining behind the rain cloud.
I have repeatedly said over the last several months (and maybe put my reputation on the line) that the market appears to have bottomed out.  A market bottoming out does not mean in any way that the market will be flying high … (5 comments)

orlando realtor: National Real Estate Investors Association's day in Washington - 05/03/08 11:27 AM
This past week I was fortunate enough to represent Central Florida Realty Investors (along with other members of the CFRI legislative committee) at the National Real Estate Investors Association first annual "Day on the Hill" in Washington D.C.
It was a thrilling and very eye opening experience for me.  I have been to Washington before, but this was the first time meeting with Representatives and Senators.  Actually we mostly met with their staffers because the Prime Minister of Ireland was addressing Congress and a big FAA vote was also happening (at least that is the excuse I was given :-). 
Besides trying to bring … (0 comments)

orlando realtor: Flip this house - Post #13 - 04/13/08 03:31 AM
I have not posted much lately about the house flip.  As I stated before with the market slow, there is not much to talk about until I can get a qualified buyer ready to do something.  Our average days on market in Central Florida is nearly 4 months, and this house has only been on the market about 2 1/2 months now.  The price has been reduced to $154,900 as of last week which puts it as one of the cheapest houses within miles that isn't a fixer-upper or a short sale. (The price of a short sale property does not mean the bank … (6 comments)

orlando realtor: A poll - What will you spend your income tax rebate check on? - 04/10/08 04:20 AM
If you haven't already heard the news, the federal government will be issuing IRS tax rebate checks to most people this year. President Bush and the feds are hoping that people will spend their checks buying goods and services. By doing so, this will hopefully stimulate the economy and help financial conditions to improve. 
    In order to get a rebate check you must file a tax return with the IRS this year.  Even if you don't normally file a return you have to file this year in order to get a check. You can get specific details about how much, when, … (6 comments)

orlando realtor: Great deals on houses are everywhere - 04/08/08 12:57 PM
March was another great month for deals.  It hasn't been since the hurricanes of 2004 that I have seen so many great deals out there.  Sellers are dumping properties left and right, and savvy buyers are jumping in and buying them up.
   Some deals our firm was involved with in just the last month:  Pine Hills 4/2 for 72K. Lockhart 3/2/2 for 101K. College Park 2/2 for 115K. Poinciana 3/2/2 for 79K. Debary 3/1 for 95K.
These are great values people.  They can be flipped and still leave a lot of profit for an end buyer.  They can be rented out with a … (10 comments)

orlando realtor: Orlando's Church Street Station status in limbo - 04/05/08 02:08 AM
I remember growing up in Orlando with Church Street Station as a local hotspot.  In the 1970's the skywriting planes would fly out every weekend and write "Rosies" in the sky (for Rosie O'Grady's club) to invite everyone down to the establishment. 
In the 1980's the Church Street Market opened up with lots of restaurants, stores, and attractions.  Horse carriage rides were common throughout downtown Orlando.  You could see the beacon lights shining up in the clouds from Church Street all over town.  I remember in high school going down to Church Street many times on weekends. Downtown Orlando even became a cruising spot to drive around … (0 comments)

orlando realtor: County and city leaders abusing Florida's retirement program - 03/24/08 04:38 AM
Has anybody been following this ongoing story? Many Florida city and county employees are getting paid their regular salary in addition to an early retirement check.  Where else could something like this exist but in the realms of the government???
    The local governments continue to complain at even one penny of a tax cut yet they can pay thousands of dollars to employees and elected officials in giant paychecks and retirement checks.  Workers in the private sector could only dream of such compensation.  The government wants the public to continue to believe the urban legend of how underpaid their employees are.  What a … (2 comments)
