Do you want to enjoy the benefits of owning a home, but just aren't ready to buy?Rent-to-own housing options have been around for years, a lot of them are often scams set up to sucker low income renters who, in most cases, will never be able to fulfill the terms of the agreement required to actually become the owner of the home. These "rent-to-own" homes are usually offered for sale or for rent to own or lease to own - however they may advertise it - by investors who will buy distressed homes and rehab them or "fix them up" to look appealing enough that it "beats renting" a home. Often times, the houses will be located in iffy areas in real estate markets that might never see an increase in value, so why bother? This doesn't sound like a better option than renting to me... We are happy ...

SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD! Yes folks, that's right 1309 Brooker Road in Brandon, FL IS SOLD!This beautiful and unique property was listed for sale by another agent and company for nearly 2 years.   The price had been dropped several times and an offer that kept the home off of the market for nearly 3 months fell apart 1 week before they were supposed to close. After a long 2 year battle these sellers were fed up and ready for a new agent! These sellers were set on going with a larger company this go around since the prior listing agent was more of a local brand.  A simple Google search for "Century 21 Agent in Brandon, FL" was the magic phrase that John (the seller) searched to find my information and online request form. I met with John and his sisters by the next day after calling and speak...

Having grown up in the Tampa area, I have fond memories of traveling from south Tampa to Ybor City along Seventh Avenue. We would often stop there to eat or pick-up food for a trip to Busch Gardens or Orlando.  My favorite as a kid was a Cuban sandwich and a Deviled Crab roll.  At some point my parents made me broaden my horizons and I tried Lechon Asado (roast pork) and black beans and rice w/plantains.  This quickly became my new favorite, and is to this day. I moved to Brandon as an adult, and I was delighted when La Septima Café, Brandon's first Authentic Spanish Restaurant opened. This is one of my favorites, when only Spanish food will do. "Septima" is Spanish for "seventh"- as in Seventh Avenue, the street that has for years been the heart of Ybor City. Treasured family antiques...

Right now, the buying experience has a number of variables to consider. First, I want to recommend to buyers that you are not in competition or bidding against the seller of a home. You are placing your offer along with three or four other buyers. If the home is in good condition, the seller may receive up to six or seven offers. I have many experiences when me and my client (the buyer) walk into a home and the whole family gets the "warm fuzzies," and this is the home we have been looking for. It took us three months! It is in their monthly price range and it has everything they wanted. One of them leans over to me and asks, "What was the listing price again?" I reply, "It is perfectly priced at its market value of $200k." Right at this point, something happens. I am smiling here, beca...

Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #58 Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #58   http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety   I hate using absolutes, but it's quite possible that this is the worst "tale" of the 58 I've written about thus far.  Pedestrians being hit by cars around here?  Seems to be a daily occurrence, with fatalities increasing.  Pedestrians hit by more than one vehicle?  Fairly rare, but it happens from time to time. But a guy getting hit by FIVE vehicles?  This is one that might just keep you up at night... Five vehicles strike pedestrian in fatal Brandon crash BRANDON — Ricky Polk was driving through Brandon to his job at a chemical plant early Friday morning when he saw two women on the side of the road, jumping up and down and crying.   Then he ...

  Thought this would be great Q & A to share as I have heard this question several times!      Pay Off a Student Loan or Buy a Home? Weighing whether buying a home will overextend a graduate with debt Q. I am 25 years old. I have a job and would like to buy a home before interest rates go up, but I have $37,000 in college debt. Should I give up the idea? --Dallas Getty Images Before buying a home, find out how long it would take to pay off your student loans. A. In the past, one of the best ways to secure a place in the middle class was to get a college education, which would assure a better income and the ability to buy a home. Over the long term, your home would be the cornerstone of your personal wealth. I still think this is true, but as the events of recent years have proven, it is...

He-Man’s Castle Grayskull for Sale Buy the Power of Grayskull!   EMBED INFOGRAPHIC   One of my earliest memories is the Christmas when my father gave me a He-Man action figure. I was beyond excited. I still have it floating around my parents’ house, beaten and bent like favorite toys should be. If you haven’t guessed, He-Man was my first fanboy love. I still think about the big guy sometimes. Thankfully, my job lets me geek out about the things I used to really care about. The past couple of times I’ve worked on novelty real estate articles, I’ve taken my cues from our loyal readers who wanted to know the value of Hogwarts Castle andSpongeBob’s pineapple. This time, however, I have to admit, figuring out the estimated value of He-Man’s fortress—Castle Grayskull—was all for me. What did...
