venice florida: Gulfcoast renters are getting more for their $$$$$ - 05/19/07 01:56 PM
RealFacts research firm has compiled the following data for rentals in the areas that I service for property management.
According to the study, monthly apartment rents in the Manatee, Sarasota and Venice markets averaged $973 for the first quarter of 2007. This represents a 3.5% increase over the same reporting period in 2006.
The greater market area of Manatee and Sarasota counties is the third most expensive in the state of Florida behind Naples and Miami.  Apartment occupancy rates at an average of 91.5% were down 3.5% over the same reporting period in 2006. 
The Englewood area was not included in this study due to … (2 comments)

venice florida: Case Study: FAIR OR FOUL? - 05/17/07 10:45 AM
Having lunch today in Venice, Florida at Sharkey's On the Pier, a rather large group of gregarious REALTORS got on the subject of how much our local Board of Realtors dues had gone up over last year.
Many feel that the increase is due to the decline in the number of REALTORS who renewed their annual dues, others feel that they are being gouged. 
I happen to feel it was time for the dues to go up, even though I don't like paying more for anything. It is logical for increases to happen just to keep pace with overhead costs, etc.
All inclusive annual … (3 comments)

venice florida: When Your Hut's on Fire! - 05/17/07 09:33 AM
I just finished reading and commenting on an inspiring "true-life" post by Maggie Dokic that should help many of us continue to have faith in our choice to maintain our status as a REALTOR.  Read it and you'll see.  The life and times of a REALTOR are challenging enough without drastic economic changes impacting our market places. Today, our profession is more challenged than ever with markets declining and continued negative press. 
Even the Real Estate Giants, who appear above the risk range, are reporting sharp concern for the negative impacts to their business. 
For Maggie and for all of us, I share this comforting story that appeared recently … (6 comments)

venice florida: HICCUP! ONE DAY BEFORE CLOSING--SOMEBODY TELL ME WHY? - 05/11/07 12:23 PM
Why is it that you can get right down to the day before closing and still have a hiccup in the lender process?
I just don't get it. Here's an example of what I mean and maybe somebody can tell me why the consumer (both the buyer and the seller, actually) must suffer through a lender's inability to do their job with an eye for detail, accuracy and down right pride in providing excellent service to their customers. (Not all of them, mind you, but enough are deficient in these areas that this example happens quite often!)
Here's the example:

venice florida: Got Vacant Homes? Can't Flip 'Em? - 04/22/07 10:24 AM
The vacation rental inventory in the local Florida market (from Casey Key to Boca Grande) for both annual and seasonal rentals along the coast line has sky-rocketed over the last couple of months.  Luckily, the demand for seasonal cottages, condos, villas and single family homes is quite high as well.  Visitors are seeing fantastic deals on rental accomodations along the coast right now.
Europeans and South American visitors generally come to Florida during the summer months with our traditional US visitors still flocking to the Florida coastline in winter.  I need more inventory to keep up with the demand, especially for seasonal rentals that … (1 comments)

venice florida: Case Study: Closing day SQUEEZE? What would you call it? - 04/10/07 09:29 AM
Buyer and Seller have a a fairly amiable relationship throughout the initial stages of the transaction. Unfortunately, the transaction does not close in 30 days as agreed. The closing date is extended for an additional 20 days and then another additional 15 days to allow the Buyer to obtain his (100%) financing.
Finally, approved for his 100% loan, the closing date is set. Both parties receive the HUD a day in advance. No issues are raised....everything appears to be in order.  Both parties arrive for closing at the same time.  Outside the building, the Seller greets the Buyer with extended arm and … (7 comments)

venice florida: Who's on your AR MOXIE list? - 09/17/06 02:41 PM
These were cut and pasted from just so we are all on the same page for this blog. 
My family uses the word MOXIE all the time, but many people I know have never heard of the word.  My family has used this word for as long as I can remember to describe a person who is determined in spite of severe challenges.  I love the word and its me, the word itself has the feeling of a determined spirit and strength.  Anyway, MOXIE isn't hard to find, but not everyone has it. In my opinion, most people who have it, are … (6 comments)

venice florida: PETS RULE! - 09/09/06 12:14 PM
 ( I know animated pictures on AR are not everyone's favorite, and I promise not to post them often, but I just couldn't resist this cute little guy.  Doesn't he just make you smile and help you let the stress melt away?  PETS RULE! )
REALTORS like many other professionals, often times have difficulty relaxing after a long day's work.  Many times, the stress of making or not making a deal can just about push you over the edge........ if you let it. 
It is a proven fact that pets help to relieve stress. Growing up amongst the dusty corn fields of … (4 comments)

venice florida: How to Make $$$ in Real Estate Investing - 07/13/06 01:58 PM
How to Make Money in Real Estate Investing
Lower Your Taxes
Tax incentives for real estate investors can often make the difference in your tax rates. Deductions for rental property can often be used to offset wage income. Tax breaks can often enable investors to turn a loss into a profit.
For which items can investors get tax breaks? You could claim deductions for actual costs you incur for financing, managing and operating the rental property. This includes mortgage interest payments, real estate taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs, property management fees, travel, advertising, and utilities (assuming the tenant doesn't pay them). These … (1 comments)

venice florida: 5 Secrets to Buying the Best House for your Money $$$$ - 07/13/06 01:55 PM
1. Get "Pre-Approved" - Not "Pre-Qualified!"
Do you want to get the best property you can for the least amount of money? Then make sure you are in the strongest negotiating position possible. Price is only one element in the negotiations, and not necessarily the most important one. Often other terms, such as the strength of the buyer or the length of escrow, are critical to a seller. <!-- insert ad block -->
In years past, I always recommended that buyers get "pre-qualified" by a lender. This means that you spend a few minutes on the phone with a lender who asks … (0 comments)
