house: Brittany vs Dinosaur (part 2) - 09/08/10 07:21 AM
OK, so this post is not about real estate, since I'm still enjoying the photo (and picture) blogs, and I do tend to get stuck on my favorite image subject... my fabulous daughter! (Biased? What makes you think that?)
On Sunday I posted a picture of my daughter "fighting" a big, bad dinosaur. *Gasp!* There was much deliberation over who would win. Well, according to this shot, I think my daughter showed the dino who's boss! he he.  She took care of one and moved right on to the next one! (lol)
Umm... Notice the sign in the foreground? *sigh*


house: Wordless Thursday? Doesn't Have Quite the Same Ring to It - 06/10/10 04:03 PM
Yep. I'm a day late. That's what happens when your blogging actually works, and you're suddenly overwhelmed with real estate buyers. (Yay!) So all I could do yesterday was leave a few comments. But since I love the photo-blog days so much, I decided I wasn't going to miss out completely. So here's my mid-week photo-blog post, on Thursday... let's face it. I don't usually get my Wordless Wednesday posts done by midnight anyway ;-)
So here's another one of Nick's beautiful photos. I aboslutely LOVE this shot! It is so peaceful. And if you look closely, there's actually a house … (16 comments)

house: Photo: Port Orange Lake-Front Park and Gorgeous Clouds at Sunset - 12/02/09 09:06 AM
For this week's Wordless Wednesday post (with words =P) I wanted to share a photo from a beautiful Port Orange lakefront park with walking/running paths around the lake, and on wooden bridges across the lake. This area is small but peaceful. I've walked this park and paths myself, and can attest to the pleasant atmosphere, and the relaxing sound of the fountain in the lake. But on this particular day, the sky was spectacular!

I hope you enjoyed this peaceful shot. And if you're interested in buying or selling real estate in Port Orange, Lisa Hill is a Port … (7 comments)

house: Mid-Week Photo on Lisa Hill's Port Orange Area Real Estate Blog - 10/28/09 07:05 PM
Today's photo is once again a photo by my friend Nick (used with his permission of course). This photo reminds me of the many beautiful birds that migrate to Florida at this time of year... right along with our seasonal residents =)   We may not have leaves that change colors, but we have entire species that arrive every winter! And we welcome the many real estate buyers who come to beautiful Central Florida who are looking to find a warmer climate, out of the snow.

If you're a "snowbird" I'd like to extend a warm welcome to beautiful Central Florida! … (4 comments)

The pure statistics shown above show a clear trend to a declining market.  Numbers don't lie.
How many consumers knew that the securitization of mortgages was going to cause a meltdown at Fannie Mae???  Very few.  Why did Fannie and Freddie lower their standards to purchase Sub-Prime and Alt-A mortgages that would reset in 2-3 years??  Did Fannie and Freddie warn the consumers buying homes in 2003-2005 that home prices could implode once the price got too high for the average American consumer to qualify for the price, even with … (6 comments)

house: New Real Estate Listing with Boat Dock, Electric Lift and More! BUT... - 10/04/08 01:06 PM

Spectacular waterfront home for sale... and no Postlet yet =(
Has anyone tried to create a Postlet for a real estate listing in the last couple of days? I'm so frustrated. I have a beautiful new real estate listing on the St. John's River, (yes, these are actual photos of the listing!) that I'd really like to advertise. But I don't like to blog about my real estate listings until I have Postlets for them. For one thing, Postlets makes the blog presentation look much more professional, and in addition, when you create a Postlet for a listing, it sends … (6 comments)

house: Would You Buy This House? - 09/20/08 10:25 AM
Believe it or not, the photos in this post are of a house I recently sold. We just closed last week. You should know that these sellers are experienced at buying and repairing houses that need a lot of work. But this house brings new meaning to needing a lot of work! It needs a LOT of work! And just before closing we had one more problem that caused the entire ceiling in the garage to collapse. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of that disaster.
However, I do need to mention that during the course of this transaction, I had the … (11 comments)

house: How Would You Sell This House? - 09/03/08 04:57 PM
  Isn't it amazing that as a REALTOR®, no matter how long you've been in the business, you're constantly encountering new situations in real estate? But there's a good chance that another real estate agent has already experienced a situation that you have not, and vice versa. So this blog post is to ask for advice from other real estate agents who may have already experienced what I did today. Or even if you have not experienced this exact situation, you might have some fabulous ideas and advice. So here's my story and some questions...

house: Daytona Beach Now Has a State College! - 08/19/08 08:12 PM

A while back I wrote a post to this blog, listing all of the colleges and universities in the Daytona Beach area.
I was born and raised in the Daytona Beach area, and can remember when all we had was Daytona Beach Community College, and of course Stetson University in DeLand. Not long ago, Daytona Beach Community College (DBCC) dropped the word "community" from their name, as they had expanded so much over the years. But the most recent addition was the "The School of Hospitality and Culinary Management", donated by local real estate builder Mori Hosseini, aptly titled the Mori … (3 comments)

house: Port Orange Real Estate Buyers and Sellers: Good News! - 07/28/08 10:22 PM

Port Orange real estate buyers and sellers, I have some good news for you. I've been tracking the Daytona Beach Area MLS records regularly, so I've known for a while that Port Orange was faring better than Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, or any of the other local cities.
Last week I sold a Port Orange house that's been on the market for a long time. It's a great house on 1 acre, in a fantastic location near Spruce Creek High School. And the sellers were (and still are) great people. But the sale took so long because the price was … (6 comments)

house: Daytona Beach Real Estate in Golf Communities - 07/14/08 04:38 PM

If you're interested in moving to the area of Daytona Beach FL, and you're a golfer, you're probably just as interested in the golf courses as you are in the real estate. And even better yet would be a residential golf community, and we have plenty of those. Let's start with what is probably the most well known of all the Daytona Beach golf communities.
LPGA. TheDaytona Beach LPGA residential golf community has two world-class courses. The Champions golf course, designed by Rees Jones and opened to the public in 1994, has natural marsh areas, strategic mounding, numerous expanses of … (8 comments)

house: Real Estate Listings on other web sites. Who controls the data? - 07/11/08 07:07 PM
This is such an overly discussed topic that I'm reluctant to bring it up again; but I'm concerned with what I'm finding on other real estate sites, about the houses and condos that I've listed. I was recently reading a post by Brian Brady about Zillow's new program that allows their advertisers to have their face and links show up at the top of their real estate pages, while Trulia is penalizing their advertisers by inserting the "no-follow" code into their advertiser's links. So I clicked Brian's link and sure enough, his face is at the top of every page I … (9 comments)

house: Follow Up to Real Estate Housing Market Hits a New Low? Yikes! - 07/05/08 05:07 PM
I recently wrote a blog post titled "Real Estate Housing Market Hits a New Low? Yikes!" That post was referencing the sotry about the woman who was offering her hand in marriage along with the sale of her house. I guess there's a reason for the old saying "desperate means call for desperate measures".
In my comments I was told that someone else had posted a blog about this story also. That's no surprise. We all have access to the same information. And I've seen mixed comments about this woman who was so desperate to get married and to sell her … (7 comments)

house: Strange REALTOR® Experiences - 05/31/08 03:42 PM
As a REALTOR®, I've encountered many strange things over the years. I'm sure I'm only going to only scratch the surface in this post, but I thought I'd share a few things memorable experiences.
The filthiest house I've ever seen: This one was very early on in my career. I scheduled an appointment to show a listing, and when I showed up with my buyers, I couldn't believe the condition of that house. The owner opened the door to let us in, and we couldn't even walk on the floor since the floor could not be seen. It was completely covered … (14 comments)
