santa rosa beach: Adopt a Mile - 04/21/09 11:32 AM
Tomorrow is Earth Day.  I have recently adopted a mile in my neighborhood and walk it daily now with a trash bag and pick up mostly beer bottles.  Why is that beer bottles are the number one item found along our roads anyway?  Cigarette boxes are also another popular found item.  Once in a while I find a coffee cup or a Subway sandwich wrap and cup.  I like it best when I find money.  Mostly pennies.  I guess that is why they say pennies from heaven?  Who knows, but I would prefer quarters if you are going to be throwing … (5 comments)

santa rosa beach: Is there anything short about a short sale? - 04/20/09 12:10 PM
Okay, I have to admit I have written 31 short sales in the last year and a half.  Zero have closed.  Am I excited about them?  Not in the least.  In fact, I advise my clients now that the name of this sale is a joke.  There is nothing short about a short sale at all.  I have waited and waited and waited.
One of them made it all the way to the closing table and I was representing the buyer.  The buyer's funds were there and all of the papers were signed.  The seller, who was a real estate agent … (16 comments)

santa rosa beach: Walton County, Florida March Market Report - 04/07/09 12:49 PM
The report just came in moments ago for the month of March 2009. 
New Home Sales Year to Date over 2008 are down 65.08%  No one is building new homes right now.
Resales of Homes is actually up 2.82% over last year.
New Condominium Sales are down 55% over last year.
Resale of Condominiums are only down 6.30% from 2008.  Incredible considering that loans on condos are very difficult to get.  Most require 25-35% down hard cash and an excellent credit score.  However, there are a lot of buyers in the market right now buying up Gulf Front Condos.

santa rosa beach: Head's Up on Foreclosures - 04/07/09 01:09 AM
Foreclosures in my market area are selling in an average of just 58 days now, down from 71.  Multiple offers are appearing on the market again and buyers are bidding over the foreclosure prices.  Just want to give you a head's up because now is the time to buy.  Waiting may only make you pay more in the long run.  Don't get me wrong there are other foreclosures in the wings.  Plenty of them.  I looked over the Lis Pendens list just now.  However, they are selling at a quicker pace. 
I cover the following areas along the beautiful Gulf of … (1 comments)

santa rosa beach: Eglin's F35 Strike Force coming to Okaloosa County, FL - 03/14/09 03:23 AM
Yesterday I attended a rally in support of the new F35's coming to our area in Okaloosa County.  I signed the billboard that will be placed in Okaloosa County.  Not that anyone will see my signature, but to show support of our military families coming into the area.  This will be a great boost to our economy here.  I took some photos while there.  Enjoy them.

That is me on the right.  The billboard is behind me.

The high school band played some old time favorites.  The drummer was excellent!  Way to go!

santa rosa beach: Buyer's Final Selection List - 03/11/09 02:27 PM
Often times I work with investors who have specific needs.  We look at comparable units within a certain price range and then line them up side by side for further comparison.  We look at rental income and taxes and quarterly costs to determine the final net we can expect on a unit.  In doing so, here is one of my more recent lists.  Which would you choose?  Just curious.

santa rosa beach: Market is Up, I am Down - 02/16/09 06:30 AM
After 3 days of being with 3 different sets of buyers this past weekend, I can only tell you that I am learning the market so well.  The more you know the inventory the better.  I worked with a house buyer on Friday, a condo buyer on Saturday, and another home buyer on Sunday.  Nothing on paper yet, but they will.  They each had to go back home think about the options, talk with their lenders (which are closed today) and then move ahead from there.  The market is definately showing good signs of picking up.  Occupancy rates in the area were … (10 comments)

santa rosa beach: Westminster Dogs -- Best in Show - 02/10/09 02:18 PM
NEW YORK (Map, News) - Asleep in his crate, Domino looked like the most peaceful, innocent pooch on the planet. Ha! Just wait, handler Paul Clas cackled. These Portuguese water dogs can cause all sorts of mischief, he said. And if President Barack Obama really does decide to make one the First Dog, look out.
"They'll bring comedy to the White House. Interesting things would happen," Clas said Tuesday at the Westminster Kennel Club show. "I think it would be hilarious."
Pacifying this active breed - among the two the Obamas are considering - isn't always easy, even with a big … (9 comments)
