Living in Daytona Beach area is more relaxed and easier than in more humid Miami, and it is also the most affordable living by the Ocean.



To read Part 1 go to: Understanding Condo-Hotels. Part I Maintenance Fee. The simplest but the most confusing issue. The first question is always about the association (or maintenance) fee. Sometimes I would even get "give me the fees for different condo-hotels and we will make our decision based...
I read Patricia Kennedy's blog Weather Wimps? She is right. Weather (or better say our perception of it) is a funny thing. Same weather, same location, different perception. Take Daytona Beach. Several days ago: air 67F, cold by our Daytona standards. People came from Midwest, they are in the Oce...
There are 14 Daytona Beach Condo-Hotels. Understanding the Concept guarantees that you are not confusing apples for oranges. Because condo-Hotel is a confusing concept. And like with everything we do not fully understand, we are not comfortable. Legally, there is no such form of ownership as cond...

I am not sure anyone ever took the oath with their highest accomplishment - just getting to the White House. We all wish him the best. I h...

This man, the former Soviet lieutenant colonel Yuri Trushechkin, had to keep quiet about it, as Soviet Union repe...
There is a lot of confusion regarding dealing with the Lenders. I remember turning to Richard Zaretsky with a genius' (I thought so) question. If we do the short sale of the property and have the Lender agree to a significantly lower price, why can't we do this for the owner, who would love to st...
Soon after September 11, my wife had to fly to New York for a check-up after a major surgery. We did not travel much, and she could not find a right size suitcase or a bag for her stuff. Her closest friend, another Russian lady, and also Olga (looks like Olgas were making it to US in higher perce...
I am doing several short sales at this point. We figured that it is a better to work with the attorney, and a few of the deals are  with Richard Zaretsky. I have been his subscriber for quite some time, and his blogs are the authority on the dubject. My clients often want to start the short sale ...
