pinecrest community: Dog Park in Pinecrest, Florida - 09/02/10 03:16 AM
It's looking very good that The Village of Pinecrest will finally have a dog park. The Village of Palmetto Bay, a much younger municipality, has had a dog park for a couple of years now and it's a big draw for families with their kids and dogs. It's only appropieate that the residents of Pinecrest have one too.
On Sept. 14th, the Village Council will have its last meeting to discuss the issue. The park would be located at Veterans Wayside Park on US 1. I think it's a perfect location for a dog park.
Presently it's a park that is rarely visited. I … (1 comments)

Absorption Rate in Pinecrest, Fl East of Ludlam Road As a mentioned in Part 1 of my post concerning the Absorption rate of  homes in Pinecrest, Fl, the term absorption rate considers dividing the current number of homes for sale by the rate at which they have been selling.

Monday, January 19, 2009 Part I: What You Get for the Money: $500,000-$550,000 I am always browsing real estate blogs. Yesterday I was browsing and stumbled across Anne Rain’s blog series "What You Get for the Money". I loved the idea and thought that I too would try this type of series, which she based off the HGTV's show, "What You Get for the Money". Maybe you’re familiar with it. If not, it compares three different cities across the nation and shows what type of home you can get in various price points. It's a great way to show different property … (1 comments)

pinecrest community: Pinecrest, Florida Farmer’s Market Opened Today - 01/11/09 04:17 AM
A truly wonderful winter tradition in Pinecrest is the Pinecrest Gardner’s Farmers Market located at 8287 SW 124 Street.  It has grown substantially through the years and now fills the entire parking lot of Gardner’s Market. I believe the Farmers Market is now organized by the Market Company, which is a  special events and farmers market production company. If this is so, it was a terrific addition. Open every Sunday through mid-April, a variety of venders sell vegetables, fruits, plants, orchids, oils, herbs, jams, salsas and baked goods. Bee Heaven Farm~Pikarco, occupies the west side of the parking lot selling only … (3 comments)
