cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Beach Resort & Conference Center. Market Snapshot. April 2018 - 04/30/18 07:27 AM
Daytona Beach Resort & Conference CenterWith 322 rooms Daytona Beach Resort & Conference Center is one of the biggest condo-hotels in the area. It is one unit short of The Plaza’s 323 room.
While they are comparable in size, these are very different condo-hotels, but both are at the top of the chain.
The resort changed the management team in Spring last year. A Maryland-based management company, Coakley & Williams, is now in charge of the resort. Libby Gallant is the new General Manager.
The new management came a few months before Hurricane Matthew, which wrecked a lot of damage to the resort. First, … (1 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Bellair Condos in Daytona. April 2018 - 04/27/18 08:31 AM
Bellair CondosThere are 6 units for sale in Bellair Condos as of April 14, 2018.
Starting price is $65K for a small studio and all the way to $299,900 for a top floor penthouse with 360-degree panoramic views of the ocean and the Intracoastal.
3 one-bedroom units, 2 of them are $89,900, and one is for $110K, and then 1 two-bedroom for $110K. 2 units are under contract now.
A clear sign of changing market. Just 2-3 years ago you could buy a 2-bedroom unit for the price of today’s one-bedroom.
But when these two units are gone, then the price for one-bedrooms would be … (4 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Condo-Hotel Market in Daytona Beach Area. 2016 Outlook. - 01/07/16 12:48 AM
Condo-Hotel Market in Daytona Beach Area. 2016 Outlook.
Before going into specifics and details, let’s have a glimpse at the overall market in Florida. I visited St. Petersburg, Treasure Island, Clearwater 2 months ago and was surprised to see quite a few cranes. Prices are going up, seems like their market is warming up.
2 articles last month mentioned Miami as a place with real estate bubble…
And Daytona Beach area market, while behind, is exhibiting some interesting signs. Seems like inventory is not increasing even though winter is the seasonally our slowest time. And prices for residential condos are holding up. Usually by … (2 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Inn Beach Resort. October 2015 News. - 10/13/15 06:09 AM
If you are looking for the least expensive condo-hotel in Daytona Beach area, you will stumble into a $22,500 unit in Daytona Inn Beach Resort. Of course, resort is not the best word to describe this budget (very budget, forgive me my English) condo-hotel in Daytona Beach, but this is the name, so I use it.
If the price sounds too good to be true, you are both right and wrong.
Wrong because contrary to many other areas in the country our market is stagnant at best, and is slowing down as we speak, even though it feels that we have exhausted this … (2 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Can I Stay In My Own Condo-Hotel? - 06/13/15 02:47 AM
Actually, the right question is "How long can I stay in my own unit?"
Are you kidding me? Can you be serious?
Actually this is the reality of owning a condo-hotel unit, at least in Daytona Beach Shores.
Let's make one step back. Lately more and more questions are coming from people, who are looking for an affordable oceanfront retreat. The idea of a condo-hotel is quite attractive. Mainly because of the following:
Location Price Rental Income to offset the expenses So, you own it, use it and when you do not use it, then the Front Desk would rent it for you.
Even if … (40 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Beach Shores Condo Market. April 2013 - 04/07/13 04:36 PM
So, what is happening on the condo market?
There are currently 27 condos for sale in Daytona Beach Shores, which are priced between $100K and $200K, 40 units priced between $200K and $300K, 13 condos priced between $300K and $400K, 1 between $400K and $500K, and 2 units are priced higher than $500K.

The smallest number is for one-bedroom condos: only 11 one-bedroom condos for sale in Daytona Beach Shores at this time. It is not that there is more demand for one-bedroom condos, than for 2- and 3- bedroom inits, it is because there are fewer one-bedroom condos in … (8 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: So, Did You Like It? - 10/08/12 12:36 AM
Often times condo rules do not allow MLS locks, and listing agents have to either provide keys or come and open the condos for showings.
This is the case for me with a beautiful two-bedroom/ two baths fully remodeled condo in Oceans Seven Condominiums in Daytona Beach Shores. 5-6 showings a week give me enough opportunity to watch buyers’ agents in action. Some of the agents I know, and some I have not met. And some agents are so busy….Like yesterday… The agent stopped her car in front of the entrance door and I let her customers in. She proceeded … (14 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Beach. Fountain Beach Resort. September 2012 - 09/17/12 11:14 PM
Time to visit Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach. Looks like Fountain Beach Resort is more in line with a normal market tan many other condo-hotels and condos in the area. For a 148-room resort 11 units available for sale per our local MLS is a healthy number. Since August 15 to today there were 3 units sold. This is a darn good number, and actually, it is higher than average number of units sold in one month in the Fountain Beach Resort Many other condo-hotels and condos have much lower inventory percentage-wise. Why at the same time properties, which are … (2 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Beach Shores. Oceanside Inn. Septemeber 2, 2012 - 09/02/12 04:02 PM
Oceanside Inn is one of the best condo-hotels in Daytona Beach Shores. This 191-room hotel was converted in 2003-2004, was tested by 4 hurricanes of 2004, and we thought that we were not going to see any Special Assessments there any time soon, and I was wrong.
The parking garage concrete structure had problems, and it turned out trying to fix it was too expensive and did not make sense, so the decision was to replace it, and this was an expensive proposition.

It is still not clear what the final verdict would be, but for now the announced … (3 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Too Good To Be True? - 09/02/12 12:52 PM
Otherwise reasonable people often get unreasonable ideas about Florida real estate market. I am not sure whether they could buy a parking space for $50K in New York, but they call and ask for a 2-bdr/2-bath condo on the ocean and expect it to be for under 50K.
Isn’t $50K too good to be true in the first place? Shouldn’t there be a reason why a condo on the beach is only $50K? That it might be small, noisy, high maintenance, etc?

Yesterday we showed a direct oceanfront studio in the Fountain Beach Resort to a visitor from New … (2 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Beach Condo-Hotels. Sea Dip Condominiums. August 2012 - 08/12/12 04:03 AM
Sea Dip is one of Daytona’s direct oceanfront condo-hotels. 134 room resort, indoor and outdoor pools. Resort is owner managed. Unit sizes start from 216 sf. Some have city views, some offer ocean view and oceanfront.
There are 8 units for sale in Sea Dip at this time. I checked the data on MLS and was stunned that 6 out of 8 listings were showing wrong, and you guessed it, much larger sizes. The condo-hotels are usually small, but there is a huge difference between 400 sq. ft. and 250 sq. ft.
Price list is always deceptive. It is what Seller … (2 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Yes Or No? - 07/20/12 03:12 PM
I was looking at the listing in Sea Dip Resort, a Daytona Beach condo-hotel. 14 Active Listings I noticed the confusion regarding pets. 4 listing avoided this information whatsoever. There is a blank space in place of the answer. 6 agents put “No” and 4 put “Yes”. Interesting. Yes or no? The majority says “no”, but will you pass on buying a unit there to only find out later that it was “Yes”? I sent e-mail to Denise Hutchinson, the listing agent of a few units there. In about half an hour, I was driving by this condo-hotel, and I stopped … (13 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Right of First Refusal And Short Sale - 07/15/12 09:20 AM
I posted Right Of First Refusal…What You Need to Know. It is a simple concept. If the price is low, it may trigger interest among other condo owners and they will have the right to buy the property under contract, provided they offer the same terms. Not all condos In Daytona area have this provision. Some only have the right of first refusal by the Association, and I only heard of two cases where it was used. But some condos have both the Right Of First Refusal by the Association, and also the Right of First Refusal (if the Association is … (4 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Binoculars As Closing - 07/01/12 02:32 AM
Joe is from Chicago. Jokes fly out of him and being with him is fun. He is dreaming about a vacation condo in Daytona Beach area. His wife is used to his jokes and does not pay any attention, even when he is telling me that he will spend time sitting on the balcony and watching girls on the beach. As a true northerner, he knows what he wants, and cuts me of the moment I try to widen the search parameters. He want direct oceanfront with no gimmicks, no ocean view or side units… he wants penthouse level, so that … (2 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Daytona Beach. Ocean Walk Wyndham Resort. June 2012 - 06/24/12 01:39 PM
Ocean Walk Wyndham Resort is by far the best and nicest condo resort in Daytona Beach area. We count it as condo-hotel simply because the minimum rental is one day, and they have the Front Desk running rentals. They consider themselves condominiums, which legally is correct. But by the same token, any other condo-hotel is legally a condominium, which defines the form of ownership.
Ocean Walk Wyndham Resort consists of 2 buildings with nearly 600 rooms total, but over 350 of units are time-shares, and a bit over 200 are so called whole owners.
Excellent amentities, the best in the area. 19-story … (0 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Frequently Asked Question: Can I Homestead a Condo-Hotel? - 05/23/12 02:55 AM
Homestead in Florida is a great thing. It is more than just a reduction in Property tax, but even this is a great benefit for any homeowner in Florida. If you have asked me this question a year ago, my answer would be “No, except for Castaways and Ocean Jewels”. And this answer was based on my conversation with the people in the Property Appraiser’s office, who told me that if the condo docs prohibit use of the condo as primary residence, then you could not Homestead it. We represented the Seller in the sale of a unit in the Fountain … (10 comments)

cheap daytona oceanfront condos: Frequently Asked Question: Why I Can’t Retire In My Condo-Hotel Unit? - 05/21/12 12:06 PM
- Why can't I retire in my condo-hotel unit? The simple answer is “because it is a condo-hotel”. If you see the word "Condo", please also note the word "Hotel". I am always tempted to ask why is the question in the first place. But I know the answer. It is because the price for condo-hotel units is so attractive. So, it is very tempting to start considering a condo-hotel unit as a place to retire. It is on the ocean, there is a pool, some other amenities. Plus even though Association Dues are relatively very high per sq. ft., but … (12 comments)
