  Upcoming changes in the Rural Development loan program should allow more families to qualify with ZERO down and ZERO closing costs! The income restrictions are expected to ease, allowing households from 1to 4 family members to make over $70,000/yr and still qualify. Households having 5 to 8 family members would actually be able to qualify even if they make over $92,000/yr! These are substantial increases so if you were told you made too much to qualify for an RD loan, please look again! This coupled with the fact that every home in Eustis is in the eligible area will allow many young families and first time buyers the opportunity to take advantage of some of the best prices we have seen in four years. In September, 2009 over 57% of the single family homes sold in Lake County were pric...

  Now more than ever government backed loan programs helping first time home buyers achieve their dream of homeownership. While talk of a credit crunch keeps some buyers sidelined many others are getting the best deals in years, with low rates and low or no down payments! Leading the charge is the old standby FHA loan. With as little as 3% down (increasing to 3.5% as of 01/01/09) you can get rates similar to those giving huge down payments. Qualifying is very flexible and most people with credit scores over 580 can qualify. The rules regarding the downpayment are very flexible too. For most buyers their tax refund may be enough, and gifts are allowed! We also have VA and USDA backed loans that allow someone to buy with no down payment. When you negotiate to have the seller pay your clos...

Have you ever had one of those days when dinner time rolls around and cooking is the last thing you feel like doing? Or maybe you want to meet a friend or client for a quick bite somewhere you can count on quality without breaking the bank. The answer to your dilemma is Tony's Pizza and Subs Italian Restaurant. I live less than a mile from the Eustis location and yet I had continually passed it up until last year when I wanted to pick up a couple pizzas and some wings to take to a friend's house for a gathering. Never again will I pass this place up. The menu includes pizza, calzones (the specialty), pasta dishes, salads, subs and a variety of side dishes. You can enjoy wine or beer with your meal and top off your meal with a decadent dessert like tiramisu, cannoli or cheesecake. Tony's...

I don't know about you but one of the things I don't like about moving to a new community is finding new service businesses. One of these businesses is the dry cleaner. In Eustis and Mount Dora I have found a dry cleaner I can highly recommend. I have taken my dry cleaning to Pugh's Dry Cleaners for 8 years now starting with the archiving of my wedding gown. Pugh's has two locations; one in Eustis and one in Mount Dora. I used the Mount Dora location for several years until I discovered the Eustis location was a better fit into my regular travels. Both locations have an excellent staff and I have always received good service. I recommend Pugh's for all your dry cleaning needs. Pugh's also offers alteration services, wedding gown preservation, and rug and comforter cleaning. Interested i...

The Community park in Royal Trails also has a nice pavillion. Plenty of room to place all your goodies for your next great event. Several residents will get together from time to time and have garage sales at the pavillion. Just recently, Embarq's representative came over to the pavillion to give information on the recent installation of High Speed Internet. We had dial-up for a long, long time. It is very nice to be able to run your business from home and have the capability of wireless internet service. If you have any questions on pricing.

  Gas prices are hovering around $4.00/ gallon (diesel is $4.75/ gallon on a good day,) airlines are charging for checked bags and talking of fare increases and surcharges, and restaurants are raising prices because their suppliers are raising prices. The family budget is feeling pinched and you might not be able to eke out the traditional road trip vacation. Personally I am faced with the children being out of school and I am trying to come up with fun things to do on the cheap for 2 ½ months. I have already checked out The Eustis Memorial Library summer reading program and put it on the schedule. We will travel to exotic locales through the pages of books. We will be limited only by our imaginations. We will also go to the park, take some nature walks and go to the Eustis Pool. We hav...

Downtown Eustis is experiencing a revitalization, a rebirth if you will. In 2003, Waterman Hospital left its downtown location to new state of the art facilities on HWY 441. The building which housed the hospital and formerly the Waterman Hotel was demolished. The Lake Eustis Foundation was established to develop the property. The vision the foundation has for the property is retail, restaurant and office space on a lower level with luxury residential living space above. Unfortunately the real estate market and rising costs of development has affected these plans. The Lake Eustis Foundation has placed the property on the market.    Some downtown businesses have suffered with the relocation of the hospital. The many employees, health care professionals, patients and their families provid...

How many of you read that title and muttered something negative about my proofreading? (It's okay, I would have done the same thing.) Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to DCUKS. Dcuks are from England. They are handcarved from renewable bamboo root. Each one is a unique character with its own name and attitude.These unique creations make a great gift and are available right here in historic downtown Eustis, Florida at Peddler's Wagon.

 I fell in love with the magnolia several years ago. I don't remember the title of the book I was reading but it was set in New Orleans. The author described the fragrance to such a degree I could actually smell the blossoms in the pages of that book.From that time on I took note of the magnolia trees. The beauty and the fragrance that author described have stayed with me. I have a magnolia tree and this picture was taken by me Friday. This was the first bloom of the season on my tree. Today that bloom is gone, destroyed by the heat and lack of rainfall. Fleeting beauty...Lately I have also been enjoying the wonderful scents of confederate jasmine and gardenias. Lake County Florida is in full bloom.
