With the market still inundated with foreclosures, you may have wondered whether buying a foreclosure is right for you. Although purchasing a Phyllis Frankel Realty Group foreclosure could result in a great deal on your first (or next) home, there are a few misconceptions about foreclosures. Therefore, purchasing a foreclosure is not always the best option for many homebuyers. Here are the top three reasons when buying a foreclosure is the right decision: You’re willing to wait – Any time a property is bank owned, such as in a foreclosure situation, you can expect the process of purchasing that property to take much longer. The red tape involved with purchasing a foreclosure may turn many buyers off; therefore, it is best to understand that buying a foreclosed home can take a considerab...

Recently I was taking a home buyer around to look at properties. She and her family are moving from another state where the homes have large basements. Her current home is nearly 4000 square feet (plus a basement) and she's looking at homes between 2000 - 3000 sqft. She knew she wanted to downsize, but had a really hard time with the room sizes.  When we would find a home that would fit all of her needs, inevidably I heard, "I don't think my living room (or bedroom) furniture will fit in here." Respectfully I tried to remind her that she was losing half her living space. She was moving to Florida for a more simple life, part of that would mean letting go of "stuff".  When you are ready to downsize, be prepared to let go of your stuff.  I downsized when I moved to Florida too. My two old...

RiverTown is scheduled to be sold to Mattamy Homes for $43.6 million dollars, according to an article in the Jacksonville Business Journal today. 4,057 acres of the 4,170 acres owned by the St. Joe Company will be sold to Mattamy Homes, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. RiverTown sits on land that has been owned for years by the St. Joe Company. During the Great Depression, Edward Ball traveled around Florida buying up land for Alfred duPont, who wanted to own a million acres of land in Florida. The St. Joe Company has managed the land and Arvida, their development arm, has developed many Florida communities. The St. Joe Company moved its headquarters from Jacksonville to the Panhandle a few years ago, and now they are selling most of the land in the Riv...
