realtors: Christmas Dinner 2019 at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, FL - 12/26/19 08:31 AM
Christmas Dinner at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida. Nice turn out and most of our "snowbird" residents have returned now. Those that have not, will soon be arriving now that the holidays are nearly over. I pity those driving down on Interstate 95 or 74. Those are typically one 1,000 mile parking lot that moves very slowly. I was in it twice and said never again. Wonderful weather though. Sunny and mid 70's during the day!
Many of our 55+ subdivisions have these dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas so that those residents who can't be with their families up north can … (0 comments)

realtors: Spanish Trails Village, Zephyrhills, FL has 2019 Xmas Golfcart Parade - 12/22/19 01:29 PM

Yesterday evening Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida held its annual golf cart parade. Many of the residents decorated their carts with flashing lights, tinsel, ornaments and even music to help usher in the holiday season. My mom and her little dog Daisy in her festive red coat rode along on a tour of all the streets. The people who did not have carts sat out to watch the parade go by. And those of us in the carts got to drive by all of the homes, many of which were elaborately decorated with lights.
After the parade, everyone retired to … (0 comments)

realtors: Last Post on Hurricane Dorian - Florida Bids the Storm "Good-Bye" - 09/04/19 09:32 AM

This will be my last post concerning Hurricane Dorian. As of 11 AM today, Wednesday, 9/4/2019, Hurricane Dorian is continuing its northern trek and is no longer a threat to most of Florida. It will pass by our northern border soon. The experts now say that it will likely stay just off shore in the Atlantic as it moves more northeasterly in the days to come. From what I hear on the Weather Channel, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina are preparing their coastal areas for high tides and possible flooding. With North Carolina being the most probably landfall site.

realtors: Finally We See that Hurricane Dorian Moving Away from Florida! - 09/03/19 05:25 PM

As of 8 PM today, Tuesday, 9/3/2019, Hurricane Dorian's is continuing its northern trek while skirting the east coast of Florida. Though it is still moving slowly, its direction is no longer to the west but to the northwest. Just as the experts had predicted. The experts now say that it will likely stay just off shore in the Atlantic as it moves more north and northeasterly in the days to come. Its track will likely become more NORTH. From what I hear on the Weather Channel, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina are preparing their coastal areas for high … (0 comments)

realtors: Projected Path of Dorian Still East of Florida with no Landfall Here - 09/01/19 10:00 AM

As of 8 AM today, 9/1/2019, Hurricane Dorian's projected path continues to be off the east coast of Florida by quite a few miles. The experts now say that it will likely stay out to sea in the Atlantic as it moves more north and northeasterly on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week. Dozens of different projections say this. If you look at the "cone" you will notice that most of western Florida, including Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa are no longer included. That should give us a modicum of relief. Those things could change, the experts say it is … (2 comments)

realtors: Storm Dorian Changes Path & Strengthens - Hurricane Could Hit Florida - 08/28/19 08:58 AM

As of today, 8/28/2019, Tropical Storm Dorian's has changed. As you can see above it has shifted to the north and now appears to just barely brush the eastern side of Puerto Rico before heading over mostly open water east of the Bahamas. This warmer water looks like it will add strength to the storm since now it is predicted to become a MAJOR hurricane by Sunday morning, September 1st. Nice Labor Day gift, right?? However, the change that took place last night changed things a lot. And changes could take place again between now and Sunday. Below you can download … (1 comments)

realtors: Tropical Storm Dorian enters the Caribbean August 27, 2019 - 08/27/19 03:28 PM

As of today, 8/27/2019, Tropical Storm Dorian has passed Antigua and Barbados and continues on a projected northwest path. We are still several days away from any Florida landfall, if it makes it as far as here. But if you look at its trajectory, you will note that the National Hurricane Center is predicting that it will remain a tropical storm for now. However, as in the past, these storms can be unpredictable and can strengthen quickly. It does appear to go over Puerto Rico and they certainly don't need more problems from the weather. I hope they are luckier this time … (1 comments)

realtors: Thanksgiving Dinner 2018 in Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, FL - 11/22/18 11:51 AM
Here in Zephyrhills, Florida, many of our winter residents have now returned. Often their families are back in northern states. This is also true for our permanent residents. So many subdivisions like Spanish Trails Village, a 55+ subdivision, have potluck dinners on special occasions and holidays. For Christmas and Thanksgiving they have a traditional turkey dinner with all of the fixings. Residents contribute a dish to the feast and for the past 4 years, I have purchased the turkeys/hams for the dinner. I also do this for Colony Hills, South Hill and Zephyr Shores subdivisions. As you can see by the … (3 comments)

realtors: 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)

realtors: Should You Retire Your Mobile Home Titles? That Depends! - 06/29/17 06:00 PM
Not long ago I got a letter from the Florida State Retirement Office. It appears that since I worked for 9 years in the public school system here in Pasco County, I could now start collecting early retirement if I want to. It is not a lot of money since I only taught 9 years here, and 12 years in Spain which don't count. However, a few hundred dollars each month is still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Many people do not realize that mobile homes also have a retirement option, and I don't mean demolition. A … (0 comments)

realtors: Florida is Bidding Hurricane Matthew a Fond Farewell - 10/07/16 06:14 AM

As you can see on the above image, the center of Hurricane Matthew is now near the Florida/Georgia border and a long way from Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa. Though it has been breezy last night and today the winds were in no way scary. When I drove a round town I saw some SMALL branches and palm fronds in yards, but nothing big. And the rains were not much more than our regular summer showers that happen. Maybe an inch or so. As far as I know we had no power outages locally.
Perhaps there is some isolated damage caused by … (0 comments)

realtors: Will Hurricane Matthew Visit Florida? Be Prepared Just in Case! - 10/02/16 05:06 AM

As of today, 10/2/2016, Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4, storm is still south of Cuba, but is predicted to make a northerly turn shortly. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in a northerly direction, skirting Florida's east coast on Thursday and Friday of this week. However, that is a long way off in the life of a hurricane, so anything is possible. We certainly hope that the forecasts are correct and that it does not move to a more westerly track taking it right up the center of the state.
This storm definitely bears watching. … (3 comments)

realtors: Tropical Storm Hermine Approaching Florida's Northern Gulf Coast - 09/01/16 07:08 AM

This is the track of Tropical Storm Hermine as it approaches Florida's gulf coast on Thursday afternoon on September 1, 2016. It appears that it may turn into a hurricane briefly before hitting land. Then it changes back to a tropical storm. With those we are not worried so much about high winds (unless you live on the coast) but with the heavy rain which can cause flooding.
Luckily, Florida is mostly flat so we don't have a lot of rivers that flow rapidly like you have seen in Texas and other states. Mostly it is standing water. However, that has its … (1 comments)

realtors: Thanksgiving 2015 - Little Change in Mortgage Interest Rates - 11/25/15 04:47 AM

Today, 11/25/2015, Freddie Mac reported that the average mortgage interest rate for 30 year fixed-rate mortgage was 3.95% down from 3.97% last week. The average interest rate for 15 year fixed-rate mortgages was 3.18%, unchanged from last week. A year ago the average rate for a 30 year fixed-rate loan was 3.97%.
A Freddie Mac spokesperson stated:
"In a quiet week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, the 30-year mortgage rate dipped 2 basis points to 3.95 percent. Economic releases over the last week contained no major surprises, and none are expected in the next few days. The year is winding down, and the only … (0 comments)
