john elwell century 21 bill nye realty: Hurricane Irma Set to go All the Way up the Florida Peninsula - 09/08/17 05:04 PM

As of today, 9/8/2017, Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, is about to skim over the northern coast of Cuba and then take a right turn and head directly up the Florida peninsula in a northerny trajectory. It had been thought that it would go up along the eastern coast of the state, but this afternoon the projections show it going further west. Now it appears that the eye will go up the middle of the state. Warnings and watches are up all the way to Tampa, mostly for storm surge and flooding. However, they say that very high winds will … (1 comments)

john elwell century 21 bill nye realty: Floridians need to keep a close watch on Hurricane Irma! - 09/05/17 04:46 PM

As of today, 9/5/2017, Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, is projected to move along the northern Caribbean Sea touching the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. If it continues along this path it looks like it will go directly over the Florida Keys and then move into the Gulf of Mexico. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in more or less a westerly direction, with its center going over the Keys on Sunday afternoon. That is still a few days off and its path could change. The most northern fringe of … (1 comments)

john elwell century 21 bill nye realty: Bid a Fond Farewell to the 2015 Hurricane Season in Florida - 11/30/15 07:30 AM
Today, November 30th, is the official "last day" of the 2015 Hurricane Season. Though it sometimes happens, it is very unlikely that a storm will form now. The waters of the Atlantic Ocean are just too cool. And warm water is what powers these massive storms.We did not even get a decent tropical storm this year that affected our area. Earlier in the summer we did have an abundance of rain, but not from any hurricanes or other major storms. 
Often people call me looking to buy a home and they want it near the gulf beaches. I work in an area … (1 comments)

LAS VEGAS – Jan. 23, 2015 – The 55+ housing market fared quite well in 2014, and 2015 should be no different, according to industry experts at a press conference held today at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders' Show (IBS) in Las Vegas.
"The 55+ housing market has been one of the healthiest segments of the overall housing market, and is likely to remain that way over the next several years," said Paul Emrath, NAHB's vice president of survey and housing policy research. "When you look at age-restricted single-family starts, there were as many in the first … (0 comments)

john elwell century 21 bill nye realty: Average Mortgage Interest Rates Rise This Week says Freddie Mac Survey - 03/24/11 11:20 AM
Today, 3/24/2011,  Freddie Mac reported that the average mortgage interest rate for 30 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.81%, up from 4.76% a week ago. The average interest rate for 15 year fixed-rate mortgages was 4.04%, up from 3.97% last week. A year ago the 30 year rate was 4.99%. . 
Even though rates did rise this week, they are still at historically low levels that make a home purchase more affordable for a lot of people. I can remember not all that long ago when we thought 6% and 7% were great bargains! The researchers following inflation saw it rise more than had been expected … (0 comments)
