melbourne voice: Spring Showers bring Buyer Powers! - 04/16/10 04:41 AM
Melbourne, Florida is happening right now!  Buyers are raining on the available inventory like a big spring shower.   Beware: these buyers are armed with sharp pencils instead of umbrellas!  Everybody is looking for the best deal - heck, aren’t we all?    The April 30th tax credit deadline is two weeks away and it’s just too good to pass up.  Sellers:  make sure your home is show-ready!!!Lots of excitement and anticipation out there for both buyers and sellers.   Play nice and keep a cool head.  An overly aggressive style usually bombs out during negotiations.  This is a good rule for both sides … (1 comments)

melbourne voice: Has Spring really sprung ?? - 03/28/10 10:45 AM
Not to be disrespectful to our northern and midwest relatives and friends,  but we’ve really suffered a cold and difficult winter here in Melbourne, Florida!  I realize that having to wear long-sleeved T-shirts for 5 months is no comparison to the folks who have suffered through blizzards and freezes.  Just the same, there’s a reason why we live here and this winter was a real bummer.  However.....   it looks like our suffering has come to an end.  We’ve spent the past several days trimming bushes, planting tomatoes, and installing new flower beds.  Feels great to have dirt in our hands.  No … (5 comments)

melbourne voice: What's Hot? What's Not? - 02/28/10 06:42 AM
We’re seeing home buying and selling activity increase in Melbourne, Florida.   There are more than our normal Spring time buyers out there looking at homes.  These shoppers are on the hunt to secure their home choice and take advantage of the government incentive.  If they contract by April 30th, qualified buyers will be eligible to receive the $8,000 tax credit.  The hot deals are the well-priced homes that are fresh, clean and sparkling.  For the right house, people are standing in line.  What’s not hot?  Overpriced homes that are not “show- room ready”. Inventory is plentiful, prices are very attractive, interest … (3 comments)

melbourne voice: Tails from a Cat House - 10/09/08 08:07 AM
We all know strict rules apply for our sellers with pets:  GET RID of pets during showings!  No odors, no fur, no pet food, and the biggest atrocity, no kitty litter !!  For 15 years I've played the hard-hearted Broker with my sellers by enforcing the "hide your pets" policy.  Everyone knows that buyers should NOT be distracted by pet odors or, heaven forbid, actual live pets wagging tails and jumping around! 
Holy Meow Mix, the pet rules have suddenly changed.  After 15 years in a "no pet" household we recently adopted 2 kittens from our local shelter.  Funny how being … (3 comments)

melbourne voice: SNOW DAY in FLORIDA ?? - 08/20/08 11:35 AM
Hurricane Fay is dancing over Brevard County, Florida for the third day in a row.  Actually a tropical storm, Fay is lingering like a long, 3 mile-per-hour slow dance - just not very enjoyable!  Everyone is hunkered down, making soup and hypnotized by the weather reports on TV.  In the past three days we've received nearly 24 inches of rain.
For anyone who grew up in northern states, this is like a snow day with schools and offices closed.   One big difference is that we're not freezing in our homes if the power goes out!   By day three, however, cabin … (0 comments)

melbourne voice: Happy Birthday America !! - 07/03/08 09:57 AM
Patriotism is alive and well in Melbourne, FL.  Our annual Independence Day barbeque is such a treat.  We're fortunate to enjoy a location directly across the river from our city's annual fireworks display.   We have front row seats to the biggest show in town on the 4th of July! 
Friends gather to enjoy the warm summer evening, good food and great music.  When the fireworks begin our music turns to patriotic favorites.   All ages sing along as they watch the show.  The crowning moment of the evening comes when the entire group jumps to its feet for the National Anthem.  This … (0 comments)

melbourne voice: Beware: The Perfect Storm ... - 06/27/08 03:19 AM
Today's buyers are navigating difficult waters.  Faced with tremendous inventory, lower prices, great interest rates, and willing sellers,  buyers are overwhelmed.  The moon and stars are beautifully aligned for them and yet it's not enough.   Today's only priority is getting a "great deal" or "stealing it".   What happened to the "location location" rule?  What happened to quality of life and nice neighbors? When did "are these sellers desperate?" become the major criteria in choosing one's home? 
Caution:  very rarely will the perfect elements come together and still be a "steal of a deal".   Buyers should not succumb to the pressure of … (3 comments)

melbourne voice: Now is the time for all good agents to come to the aid of their colleagues! - 05/17/08 08:37 AM
Does anybody else think it's time to go back to Real Estate 101?   Back in the old days (not all that long ago) we received courteous service when calling another brokerage to schedule a showing on a listing.   Agents were appreciative to have their listings shown and were happy to assist a selling agent with instructions. 
It seems today that some of our brokerages have forgotten a basic premise.  Selling agents are actually "customers" of that brokerage.   Few agents seem to grasp this basic concept.  If a selling agent has a potential buyer for your listing, try a little courtesy.  Provide … (2 comments)

melbourne voice: LIVING IN PARADISE - YES, REALLY !! - 04/30/08 08:13 AM
Living in Melbourne FL is a dream come true.  We enjoy all the benefits of true coastal living - cool sea breezes and beautiful beaches.   The lifestyle is quiet and laid-back, people are friendly;  "it's all good" here!    Do not, however, confuse us with an outdated  "Florida retirement area" moniker because we're much, much more. 
We are often called "little silicon valley" for good reason.  A well-defined industry cluster, we are home to many major hi-tech corporations and the network of local "spin-off" companies is tremendous.  Young, hi-earning professionals flock to Brevard County for our tremendous employment opportunities.  The article in … (0 comments)
