Since we are in a BUYERS market and there are an abundance of homes on the market.....HOW Well do you know the inventory out there?? It's soooo important to preview 10-15 homes a week, so you KNOW about the inventory in the area you work. It's also a chance to see the type of condition they are all in, so when you do work with the buyers, you can be Very educated about the inventory and Quality of the homes on the market! Buyers are educated, because alot of them shop online for a long time, before they come to Realtors to actually show them homes. What do you do to show BUYERS you KNOW the inventory in the area?? What Ideas do you have to show BUYERS the value you bring to the table?I see alot of companies/Agents go on Caravans or go to Broker Opens weekly!  BUt how do you remember tho...

The competition in this current Northeast Fl real estate market has never been keener. The wonderful opportunities that currently exist for buyers of new homes in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach S, Ponte Vedra Beach N, St Augustine, and the newest community, Nocatee, is exhilarating and dynamic. Searching the multiple listings, television ads, newspaper advertisements, and most importantly the internet websites that specialize in Northeast real estate, new and thrilling opportunities are offered almost routinely each day. Some of the most exciting real estate ads are those by builders who have inventory in a community that they are trying to close out. As a real estate professional, I am excited when I identify those wonderful buying opportunities and can pair it with a client who has b...

Currently called "Jacksonville Municipal Stadium" the home of the Jaguars is waiting anxiously for its new sponsor.  None of the newscasts even hinted at who or what that might be, but does it really matter?  The stadium is beautiful.  There isn't a bad seat in the house.  Of course the price of a ticket is obscene, but what professional team ticket isn't? Having attended the two home pre-season games (both won), I'm inclined to buy tickets to the season opener for this weekend.  There is the threat of a blackout of the first game because there are still tickets available.  The problem is that these available tickets are so far out of my entertainment budget that it's not even funny.  The stadium must meet the ticket-sales requirement by Thursday of this week in order to have this game ...

Don't you get irratated with Realtors that DON'T take more than 1 picture for a home they are trying to sell! I can't tell you how unprofessional it is. I work with buyers alot, and if there are no pictures, I'm not going to take them to see a home, that may be in shambles?!?! It does'nt take much training to learn how to use a digital camera these days. I pride myself in taking GREAT pictures and my OWN Visual Tours!! These days, pictures are worth MORE Than a 1,000 words!!! Pictures can SELL HOMES!! So, I apoligize to BUyers out there for the incompetance of some of my fellow Realtors?!!? Please don't lose Faith in our profession, There are Still ALOT of GREAT Realtors, like myself, out there!!

It really is a journey when looking for a new home in any Northeast Fl city. There are so many communities and builders competing for our attention. Jacksonville Florida homebuilders have been doing themselves proud with the variety of housing and the price range of the new housing made available to the Jacksonville Fl homebuyer. Tarragon TARR is one of the nationally recognized Fl homebuilders that occupy a prominent position in the Jacksonville real estate home market. The Jacksonville and Orange Park real estate landscape would look much different without Tarragon as an active player in the Northeast Fl real estate market. Who exactly is Tarragon Corporation?  Tarragon Corporation TARR, is a leading developer of multifamily housing that is either rented or is for sale.

Jacksonville Real Estate It's not hard to understand why homebuyers are looking at the Jacksonville Real Estate market. The climate, recreation, and job growth in North East Florida is hard to beat. Homes for sale in Jacksonville are very popular with buyers from around the country. Although it may seem like it's been forever since the Super Bowl was in Jacksonville, the city has not stopped building new homes since the big game. All of these factors continue to draw people and businesses to relocate to Jacksonville, making for a solid real estate market. New Homes in Jacksonville The abundance of land on the Southside of Jacksonville and on the Westside of Jacksonville has led developers to create some very desirable new neighborhoods. Along the J. Turner Butler corridor toward the bea...

REPOST from my Website...   Just a thought... Buying a Home is a Good Idea The Best Investment As a fairly general rule, homes appreciate about three or five percent a year. Some years will be more, some less. The figure will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, and region to region. Five percent may not seem like that much at first. Stocks (at times) appreciate much more, and you could easily earn over the same return with a very safe investment in treasury bills or bonds. But take a second look… Presumably, if you bought a $200,000 house, you did not pay cash for the home. You got a mortgage, too. Suppose you put as much as twenty percent down – that would be an investment of $40,000. At an appreciation rate of 5% annually, a $200,000 home would increase in value $10,000 during the...

The Jacksonville Landing is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer with two free concerts. Eddie Money will be performing the first concert on July 27, 2007. The Little River band will be performing on August 25, 2007.  Both concerts are free and will start at 8pm. The Jacksonville Landing has plenty of restaurants so get there early and grab a bite to eat and relax while overlooking the downtown skyline along The St. Johns River.  Also, you want to get there early to get a good parking spot.

With all the national news about the real estate market it is hard to know the actual condition of the real estate market.  There are several things to keep in mind if you are thinking about buying a house right now.  First, interest rates fell to 6.2% in 2007 from 6.8% in August 2006.  This is GOOD NEWS if you are buying!The correction that the news media is covering has been greatly misunderstood.  The correction is in sales voume and price appreciation.  Volume has slowed greatly because there is so much supply on the market - this is also GOOD NEWS is you are buying!If you are hesitating because of the 1% price drop expected in 2007, remember that that drop comes after a 5-year spurt where home prices increased by about 53% nationally.If you thinking about buying a home anytime soon...

Hi everyone!  I am getting ready to head out to the block party Downtown, but is there anything else going on this weekend in Jacksonville?  It's too hot to do anything outside until the evening...  I have had my fill of beaches and boats lately.  Just looking for ideas!  Thanks! :)
