 It may be hard to believe but Ocala does have an airport. The Ocala International Airport to be exact. Now we don't actually have major airlines. Scheduled air service was discontinued in the early 1980's after Eastern and Allegheny Commuter Airlines terminated their operations here in Ocala. Wi...

   Ocala is one of the few cities that I've seen since I moved to Florida that actually has a formal down town complete with a town common. Now I'm from New England where every small town has a common. Town commons date back to colonial times and were intended to give people a place to graze thei...

  Marion Oaks was built without sidewalks and that over sight will be rectified in the not so distant future. The original developer laid out wide 2 lane boulevards with tree studded grassy meridian dividers but didn't install either sidewalks or many street lights.  A recent article in The Ocala...

The Marion County Clerk's office reported 142 foreclosures for February 2007 up from 107 in February 2006, a 33% increase.

There is a reason so many people choose the Marion County area of Florida as their place of retirement. The pace of life is slower here, a southern style of living unusual for Florida, but it is what makes Ocala unique from any other part of the country. Sometimes it is easy to forget about the r...

     Earlier this month almost 500 people met at the Marion Oaks Community Center to further explore becoming a city. There was another attempt back in 1998 that really didn't get anywhere.

    Its termite swarm season again. Termites cause $700,000,000.00 in damage each year here in Florida. Despite this scary statistic about half the homes in Florida have no form of protection. I'm one of the unprocted myself. I'm from New England and just don't worry about termites or poisonous s...

Another Reason Why You Need a Buyers Agent     Let's say you've found a house and decide to make an offer. A good question might be; How long has this house been on the market ? The seller's agent shows you that it was just listed 2 weeks ago. Is that really true ? Well the seller's agent can't l...

To be perfectly honest with whoever might be reading this, this is the first time I'm writing a blog. I've heard about them, but I can't say that I fully understand what they are, and how they work. If anyone can give a very simple explanation, I'd certainly appreciate it. A little about me.........

 Joe's Ocala Market Report   Home sales in November 2006 were up 1% from November 2005. The increase was 1% which is pretty great considering all the bad press we've had all year and considering 2005 was like a gold rush in this part of Florida. Perhaps more importantly, prices were up 6% over th...
