Brevard County Homes for Sale have hit an all time high. Every street, it seems has one home for sale or rent. The newspaper articles blame it on the economy, taxes, and insurances. Of course we all know about all the negative aspects of the declining real estate market, we're living it too. Let the truth be known,(you can check it out yourself) that there is more inventory that there has ever been. I'm sure that is true in more areas than not. The world is full of enough drama, is ther a ray of sunshine?

Lets talk about all the advantages this poses for families that were unable to purchase homes 3 or 4 years ago. There is more housing downpayment money available than ever before; the prices of the homes are adjusting in a more reasonable range. You can get a 60 year mortgage now! Check out my properties search or visit: http://public.brevardmls.com/cgi-brv/ACT_ainv?3168091.  You can also visit my website: www.abrevardagent.com

I spoke to our local newspaper, who is the main source of advertising in the community. They agreed that the newspapers, although getting most of their revenue from real estate professionals; have not been treating the real estate profession very well. As agents we need to contact the journalist who wrote these stories, and give them the positive side of the real estate news. The housing department is giving more grant money than I have ever seen.  The opportunity for investors to get some great deals is better than ever. 

The real estate professionals need to speak out and talk about some of the positive things that are happening in the marketplace.  The news will be sure to cover all the bad stuff.  Some of us are still doing enough business to be happy! Right?

Josephine, having grown up in Brevard County I read of the tremendous appreciation in prices the last few years. Now it seems it has gone the other way. Tops on the charts to now bottoms on the charts. Is the job market shifting or is it just the taxes and homeowners insurance have gotten so high people have to move to have something more affordable? That's my guess. I know the impact of the hurricanes really drove up the insurance rates.

Gary,

Although there is not a whole lot being accomplished in regards to Property Taxes, we can do something about Property Insurance.  Everyone should shop for Property Insurance every year. Don't ask your insurance agent to do it for you.  That is like asking the fox to guard the hen house.  

As homeowners we must take responsibility to protect our investment.  Shop, compare and analyse what works best for your pocket book.

In the insurance world of ratings there the AM Best rated and the DEMOTECH rated companies. Recently, I shopped for a client from Canada who was in the process of buying in Palm Bay only to find the big gap in premium. Exact same coverage.  

Here is a snap shot. AM Best C-- $2,700 while a DEMOTECH A- was less than $800.
