The following are the market sales statistics for Apopka, Seminole and Orange Counties, Florida for September 2009.  Apopka is made up of the zip codes of 32703 & 32712.  For purposes of this analysis we are only splitting the data according to single-family homes vs, condominiums, townhomes and villas.   A couple of definitions are in order. The median sales price means that 50% of the homes sold for more and 50% of the homes sold for less during a certain period of time - in other words, it's the midpoint of sale prices. So basically what this means, is that the median sales price is showing market activity in that it's specifically indicating which price range is more active.   The average sales price, as opposed to the median sales price, is the total volume of sold properties divi...

In the last newsletter, I wrote about the City of Apopka proposing a tax hike. (You can read it here.) What's more interesting is that TRIM (Truth in Millage) Notice that was just sent out shows this increase in both sections whether there is a proposed budget change or no budget change. So, I guess they'll have their public hearings, but really do they mean anything? Now I must admit that I'm thrilled with the several hundred dollar savings that I'm noting in investment properties. On the other hand, many people that have lived in their home for a while will note tax increases. This is partly due to the ‘recapture provision' of Save Our Homes homestead. It's interesting because the taxable value of my home rose $93, yet my taxes will rise a minimum of $63 to a maximum increase of $113....

When I go out of town I bring my dog, Cooper, to Bow Wow Resort.  If Cooper could talk he would tell you how much fun he has when he gets to stay at Bow Wow Resort!  As I pull up the driveway to drop Cooper off, he gets super excited because he knows exactly where we are.  I can't express how happy it makes me knowing that Cooper is well taken care of and truly enjoys going to Bow Wow Resort. Bow Wow Resort offers day care and over night boarding as well as a variety of grooming related services.  During the day the dogs have free roam of the fenced-in play area.  Many times when I have a long day ahead of me I take advantage of the day care service.  Its great when you pick up a tired and happy dog at the end of the day! For more information about Bow Wow Resort please go to their web...

The City of Apopka is raising the millage rate, but because of governmentese it is called a rate rollback. The reason they can do this is the municipality can raise the rate so that they can continue receiving the same amount of funds as in the previous year. The current rate is 3.5168 mils and the proposed rate is 4.1115, an almost 17% increase.   According to a city official that I spoke with he stated that we should not pay more since property values have gone down in the past year. This may be so in some instances, but not all.   With everything that has been going on for the past two years and the expected shortfalls, why did the city build an amphitheater? Was this a necessity, other than for more religious concerts? Seriously, have we forgotten about the separation of church and ...
