I write for RE Technology and Realty Times, just finished the first article in a new series about Foreign Investors, hope you enjoy reading the article as much as I had researching and writing it!I hear so much about foreign investors in the real estate industry, some agents run scared, some agents embrace the foreign investors and most just don’t have a clue and don’t understand that part of the business.  I am one of those who had no clue about foreign investors, Visa’s, IRS and many other questions.  Where I live in Central Florida is apparently a hot bed for foreign investors so I decided to look around for help so all of us understand more about the foreign investors and what opportunities a REALTOR® might have.My research started with finding an expert in the business and seeing i...

Why You Should Drive by a Home Before You Decide to See it for Real!   Most buyers use the Internet to search for homes these days, and there are plenty of good reasons for doing so.   You get to see lots of photos…hopefully plenty of good ones…plus you can read details about the home, including features, size, bedrooms and baths, garage and parking spaces, fees (if there is an HOA), and the list goes on.   Usually there is a map, and you can explore the area online, too.   And in these days of the pandemic there are virtual tours, Matterport 3D tours, and plenty of videos so you can really explore the homes that interest you, inside and out, and safely from the comfort of your home or office. All before you decide the home looks like a great fit for your needs and budget and take the ...

When will the home prices start going down as a result of COVID19?We all know real estate is local. By reading the market data for the West Coast, there’s no way a home buyer would learn what the real estate market is doing in Central FL.There are many factors that affect home prices to go up or down in any market. One of them is DEMAND. I read many posts on social media from real estate professionals who seem to think home prices are on the decline. While this might be true for some parts of the country, it hasn’t been the case for the majority. On the contrary, home prices continue to rise, at least in Central FL.Yesterday, I had a conversation with a home buyer who wanted to see a home that came on the market nine days ago, listed at $380,000. Since she is a cash buyer, she asked if...
