Living in Daytona Beach area is more relaxed and easier than in more humid Miami, and it is also the most affordable living by the Ocean.
A friend of ours, who recently bought a second condo in Sarasota, sent me this link to The 10 Best Big Cities To Retire In The U.S. Wow, they hit two cities on this list. Sarasota being #1 in the nation, according to US News & World Report, and Daytona Beach taking line 7.  By the way, one of the...
Recently read an article in Miami Herald “Condo rip-off: Tenant sues association over high fees”. If you deal with condos, you, probably, run into those high fees charged to Sellers, Buyers or Tenants.In Florida we got to the point that recently enacted legislation governing Estoppel fees…But the...
Hurricane Irma. Lesson to LearnA couple of years ago we helped buyers from St. Petersburg, Russia, to purchase a house on Daytona’s Beachside. They were not here when Hurricane Matthew hit, and knew about hurricanes only from neighbors. Majority of what they hear is that it is no biggie, you can ...
We ran from Irma to New Orlean, and I donot regret a single minute. We needed a break. Not such as Irma, but we needed a break.Yesterday we visited National World War II Museum in New Orleans. “Ranked by TripAdvisor as the #1 Attraction in New Orleans, named by USA Today as the #1 Best Place to L...
We ran away from Irma. Unplanned and unneeded sort of vacation, but hey, it is still better to have a forced vacation, than have to be forced to work :)So, here we are in New Orleans. It is our 3rd time, which tells you about the increased hurricane activity in Florida :) It is a fun place, so mu...
It is easy to assume that things in other places are the same as in US. But what if we look beyond United States, and beyond the developed Western countries?We may see Wild East there…In my 26 years in the US I have never seen so much news about Russia. Actually not as much about Russia, but abou...
I am a condo broker, which only means that I am too lazy to deal with anything other than condos :)One of the issues in condos - pets. Condos have restrictions. That’s simply the nature of the beast. I digress here, but when I see a 32-page Rules & Regulations for a condo on the beach, I shrug at...
- What is your ideal condo?I ask this question condo seekers, that call me.They tell me about bedrooms, view, pets, potential rentals… And then we get frustrated that we show one condo after another. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get all the details from the prospective buyers before taking them ou...
Too Good To Be Too GoodMarina Grande on the Halifax (aka MG on the Halifax) is a two 26-story towers (no 13th floor, though) in Holly Hill is the only Miami-style condominium in the area. It feels like Miami, it looks like Miami, yet, it is still not Miami.The towers hit crisis at the worst possi...
Our son has friends in New Smyrna Beach, spends a lot of time there, and he brought us to this nice cute little place on on a very busy corner on Flagler Ave in New Smyrna Beach. It is called Atlantis Bistro.He said they had the best lasagna, and when you hear this from our very picky son, you go...
