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.



We are all used to Creative Financing and now it often has a bad taste to it. But there is also creative buying. It often involves doing something beyond MLS. I might involve maybe even more than an extra step. Here’s a “fresh” example. When unit in The Plaza Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach hit MLS...
Living on the beachside in Daytona is a big advantage. Even with our busy schedule, it takes me only 5 minutes to walk to the beach. I love walking on the beach and do it religiously. The only difference that I envision for me when I retire (if ever), is that I will be doing it every day and not ...
Shake the Sand off Your Branding People usually like these bare feet. It is on our business cards as well, and every time I give the card to somebody, they notice these feet. I can’t take the credit for that, as it was Inna & Jon who came up with the feet. Often customers in the office will look ...
I read a blog posted by Ted Tyrrell What is a Friend?  It is a nice post, he uses a quote from C. Raymond Beran one that you read and think that it would be great if it were true, but it is not. This is not a rebuttal, no. Ted inspired me to write this post, which was due so long ago. Here’s the ...
Here is the classic scenario. A customer walks into our Daytona Beach office and asks us about the condo-hotel units. Because condo-hotel operation involves rentals, the question about income comes naturally. - What is the income here? I usually say that if the condo-hotel unit generates enough t...
First you have to have $100. Keep reading if you do. This brand new oceanfront condo building  with 53 three-bedroom units (Islamorada) in Daytona Beach Shores, was officially sold today for only $100... (plus what was owed to them) This condo building was just recently completed. At the time whe...
When on a highway, I usually use cruise control. It disciplines me, I am guaranteed from speeding beyond the speed that I set, and I do not need to watch and maintain it. And there are always cars flying by going at good 100 miles per hour only to slow down after they get in front of you. Why wou...
There is Biketoberfest in full swing just a few miles away in Daytona Beach, but here in Daytona Beach Shores you do not see that many bikes on the road, and the beach is serene and quiet. This is the time of the year when the daily temperatures still reach 80F, but the nights are in the 50s and ...
In the ocean of AR members I pay special attention to fellow Floridians.  Christine Bohn is one of them, a fellow broker/associate from Gainesville, less than a 2-hour drive from Daytona Beach. She writes good blogs, and very meaningful comments way beyond the required 10 words.  Last night I saw...
I was reading the article in News Journal, and found this phrase to be so true about Daytona Beach: “You never have to go on vacation while you're here because the vacation comes to you”.   The sound of Harleys signal the cometh to Daytona Beach Area of another sound, ringing cash registers from ...
