Apparently, someone forgot to tell Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic that the economy is shaky, and that Orlando real estate is a questionable investment. He just paid a record $8 million for a new home in Longwood. You can read all about it in the Orlando Sentinel. There is even a short video s...
I have to say, the condo in Baldwin Park that I have been blogging about for a while now, has turned out beautifully. My customers are closing on it tomorrow, and the home inspector Monday found just three very minor issues with unit. After the home inspection, we had the walk-through with the bu...
I will preface this by saying that I am a Central Florida native. I attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando. My MBA is from Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College right here in Winter Park. My wife was born in Orange Memorial now Orlando Health. So yes, I am biased w...

You may be checking out areas of town that are close to where you work or go to school. You might be checking to see how much your neighbor is asking for their ...
I am working with a couple buying their first home together here in Orlando, and yesterday they spoke with a couple of lenders about rates and loan programs. Both lenders were recommending FHA as an option for them, but the interest rates they were quoted were significantly different. One rate wa...
Centerline Homes in Baldwin Park held an American Dream Street Open House yesterday, and from what I saw it was a tremendous success. I don't know how many homes they sold, but there were quite a few people there when I went through. I live in the neighborhood, and stopped by to check all their f...
The current market reminds me of the story of the exodus in the bible. If you want to read about it check out chapters 13 and 14. The particular part of the story I am referring to is when they get to Canaan, the land of milk and honey, the promised land. When they arrive just outside of their de...
