palm coast homes: Weekly Flagler County & Palm Coast Market Update 10/26/2013 - 10/26/13 08:21 AM
The area is still seeing a decent amount of buyer traffic and closings.  For the month we are slightly down compared to closings for the same period last year when 132 closed compared to 114 this year or 14% below last year.   One of the things to keep in mind with this year is the Government shutdown which lent to buyers holding off a bit and causing some loans to be delayed.  But, again, we are still seeing decent activity in the area.
The number of homes for sale is still on the low side at 883 for all of … (0 comments)

palm coast homes: Kemper Still Aiming For Palm Harbor Golf Opening In Fall 2009 - 06/11/09 01:15 AM
Despite an excess of recent rain, Kemper Sports stated that they are "are still aiming for a target opening date in the Fall" in a letter to the Friends of Golf dated 5/18/09.  While driving past the course it is noticeable all of the work that is being done, the progress, and the challenges faced to restore the course.  Residents near the course are eager to see the course brought back to life.  Many of whom built in that are specifically because of the golf-community aspect of the subdivision and know the potential impact to their property values without an operational course.

palm coast homes: Are ISP's Stopping You From Servicing Your Customers? - 02/13/08 02:28 AM
What used to be "nice" services in our industry such as automated emailing of listings, has quickly become standard practice.  Consumers have voiced their wanting of this type of convenient and easy notification service when shopping for a property.  As most know, you can't send this type of information driectly from your own computer and most of us don't have our own personal servers (well, maybe some of those gamers out there that are Realtors by day and Halo'ers by night).  But are your customers getting their requests?  Not always.
Here's the issue.  Since these automated listings are being sent from the MLS company's servers (most … (1 comments)

palm coast homes: Great Deal On A Tablet PC - 02/13/08 02:19 AM
If you've ever looked into buying a Tablet PC, you've probably noticed the prices are high and very difficult to find under the $2000.00 range.  I've been keeping my eye on them and constantly checking, and found the best deal I've seen yet . . . The Gateway C-141X.  The specs are great with a Pentium Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive for $999 plus a $70 off coupon (kind of a wacky thing, but it's there!) bringing the price to $929.  This is a full-size laptop with the tablet feature with a decent weight of 6.2lbs.  … (6 comments)

palm coast homes: Finally! A Real Estate Book That is Fun and Informative! - 02/10/08 01:43 PM
 Click here for more information on this book.
I recently picked up a copy of "House Lust" (as seen above) by Daniel McGinn, and am mezmorized at how much we forget and far housing has come over the years.  This book is a cultural study into what drives the obssessions with Real Estate (i.e. checking listings even when you aren't considering buying, visiting the neighbors open houses, home shows, etc.).  It's not a book filled with stats and economical analysis.  You'll often find yourself laughing while reading because you do some of those same things.
The book also does a great job at … (6 comments)
