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.



It’s turtle season.   It is the Turtle Time in Daytona.   Every year in the Daytona area we have the turtle time.   “From May 15 through October 31, the area beaches host an unusual marine visitor - the sea turtle. These magnificent animals emerge from the surf at night to lay their eggs in nest...
The first mention about Zillow gobbling Trulia was days ago, as well as the first discussion on AR, and wow, it is now pretty much official. It is simply hilarious. For AR with its adversarial attitude towards aggregators, Trulia, and Zillow, first AR was gobbled by Trulia, and now it is becomin...
