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.



Debe Maxwell from Charlotte, North Carolina, has crossed the 600,000-point mark. I am surprising nobody, unless they are new to Active Rain. So, if you are newbie, follow Debe and copy the way she works (but not her blogs – LOL). Debe is pretty much the embodiment of what AR is about if you are l...
What do we call the image of the industry, when we are talking about real estate? There is a stereotype of a real estate agent…Many are not really happy with that…In general, it is not flattering. When we know a person better, we know that there are great people, who sell cars, as well as there a...
A man with a camera instead of his face (;-), - does it sound familiar? Yes, the Ambassador from San Diego, a prolific blogger, avid photographer, a true gentleman, and a very good man William Johnson, who for many of us became the voice of San Diego, has crossed 500,000-point line. He became the...
Here’s the story. My friend sold his house. The house was old, maybe 100-years old, but in that area it was not unusual. The Buyer was an investor and had a tenant for that house. For some reason the closing was delayed by one week, and the Buyer asked the Seller to allow the tenant to occupy the...
“Members Only” or “Public”? I recently even posted A Bit Of Real Estate Febreze... Will Ya? and, yes, I am still a strong proponent of blogging Public. But as many of us do, I ran into a situation today, where I wanted to share it with my friends on AR, and then I stopped at the thought that I wo...
This over 4,000 sf living and 6,000 sf total direct Intracoastal house built in 2002 is scheduled for foreclosure today at the Volusia County courthouse. We notice it from the publication, which is required by law. Checked MLS, the house has never been on the market. Judgment amount is $1,014,000...
I have not visited Ocean Jewels Club since January this year. Today I have received the e-mail from the hotel manager, Tim Oliver, and I stopped at Ocean Jewels Club, Daytona Beach Condo-hotel, on my way to the office. First pleasant surprise, the Lobby is open and I was greeted by a gentleman at...
The answer is really simple. Shoot your own movie and star in it. As long as we are all stars, and there is no problem with starring, let's move to the technical part of it, i.e. how to create a movie... or at least a video... or even a slide show. A couple of times I was asked what I was using t...
We closed on a condo-hotel unit in Oceanside Inn – a Daytona Beach Shores premiere resort. And it was not a short sale… but it still took us 1,061 days to get to that Closing… Even those, who are not in distress, eventually start losing faith in the market. My clients are the first buyers in Ocea...
For the last 6-7 months we are watching the foreclosures. It is a bit tricky, because you have to go through several sources to figure out the real picture. The properties scheduled for Foreclosure Auction, but taken off the auction still stay on one the sites we use, so it is a balancing act to ...
