Ok, you are now ready to retire and you have always dreamed of sunny winters in Florida!  You Google "Florida Retirement Communities" and are amazed at the results.  You realize that you need to narrow the search and remember the neighbor went to The Villages in Lady Lake.  Your boss retired to Legacy of Leesburg and your friends have visited Lake County and are raving about Lakes of Mount Dora!  How do you make a decision on where to visit during your one week stay?  First consider your lifestyle.  Do you love fishing? golfing? nature walks? or plenty of activities to get involved in?  Will you be on a fixed income?  If so, you will need to consider the cost of insurance in the middle of the state verses the coastal areas.  It is much cheaper inland.  What hidden costs are there to a c...

Working Real Packages Takes Patience   Posted: Thursday, April 09 2009 at 09:26PM Edit     For those who are chasing thier tails...Looking for an answer to Small Bulk REO Packages.....Take heart.    There are real packages, nice small packages that can be bought. They are not always where you want them.  They are not always in your back yard. They do not always look like a package. They will have some houses that aren't pretty.  PS.........this is REO, right??? These home were not paid for, sat empty without maintenance, possibly stripped of interior fixtures. WHat do you think you get for 30 cents on the current BPO...... Imagine that you wanted to buy an entire car lot at one time......Imagine that Car Lot A is all used cars, some ready to go, some not  ...... Now imagine Lot B is al...

Lets Act Like Proffessional Realtors Hello All,With prices continuing to fall, and the mortgage industry all but drying up, we had better just spend our time listing homes that will pass inspections and appraisals. Our job as Realtors is continuing to evolve into total consulting position with a well rounded understanding of the entire home buying, financing, and marketing process. Contingincy offers make you feel good for a minute, but when the property, or the buyer cannot qualify, then we have done all our best efforts for nothing. I am on a record pace for deals that have fallen apart due to a myriad of reasons, but the final outcome is a disapointed seller(and buyer) and no money for me. We do get paid well for the amount of time we actually spend on a transaction,that closes; we s...

Hello...This is to buyers reps or direct buyers only please. I am in contract with a ACTUAL DIRECT Sellers Rep who is Currently assigned the task of breaking down a larger package and selling them in smaller bites. It is a simple protocol. Call me if you will, and we can discuss the different areas that are available right now, and whats coming up. We don't need a big FancyLOI POF deal, but if you have one that's OK too. These are small deals, and will go quickly. All we need is a basic NDA, which I will provide, and a very generic outline of what the Buyer is looking for. Price, Location, Terms...again, from the BUYER. Some of these are Midwestern Packages for as little as 500k take down, and they have an included exit strategy in place to either assist in the cleaning/marketing/sales/...

  This post is probably a bit overdue. I have decided ( a while ago) to form a consulting business as my primary marketing arm for what I do. Yes, I still am a Licensed agent, not a broker yet, maybe I will never get a brokers license. In the next week I will make a decision as to where I want to hang my agents license. You can bet it will be with a group that deals primarily in investment and commercial deals. I have great leads on Builder Closeouts, fractured condos, stalled projects, and all kinds of deals that should be ready to go here in FLorida. Or I may just stay where I am at, you never know...... Rick and I have been Friends for nearly 20 yrs... But, aside from just being a Realtor, I love the business of Marketing & Consulting. This title takes into account many skills, allo...

  I am a Realtor in Central Florida. I have had a license for nearly twenty years. During that time I have worked mainly with investors and bought many good Real Estate Deals myself. In the last year, I took off from regular Real Estate and did other business, working with investors doing evaluations on larger projects. But in Fla, the numbers always came out the same....Don't Buy...Don"t Buy I did a lot of study into the market, and Last Jan, 2008, I could not actually do a pro forma that used current info that would justify a purchase at normal Realtor CMA pricing. We did attempt to factor in downward pricing, but the values were continuing to fall. The banks were in total denial at that time, and short sales were all I was doing. Suddenly I had over 70 deals and no one that could clo...

The Lake and Sumter Counties Home Builder's Association Parade of Homes kicks off this weekend, Saturday February 21 with great deals on new, never lived in homes for sale. The great incentives being offered by builders, coupled with the new $8000 tax credit for first time buyers makes it an excellent time to buy. Also remember if you want to have a home built to order, and want to be able to collect on your $8000 credit, you need to start construction within a few months so you can be closed by the November 30, 2009 deadline. Yu can get more information at the Lake/Sumter HBA website here. Look forward to seeing you there, and Happy Parading! Gerry Suarez, Jr. Your FHA Loan Pro!

    Hello all Its been a while, but DevelopersCapitalRealty.com   has gotten a make over on its old website. Now, its not perfect yet, just much better. We have big plans, and its just in the beginning stages.....   We are working on some things, like auto responders and the contact me forms, but all in all, its a cleaner look. We are also working on the Fla Deals page, which will showcase Fla properties and bulk purchase opportunities available to some qualified buyers. We will soon have an auction page, full of details and final dates to get in your bids. I will of course love to listen to any feedback.   Thanks, and I will see you at DevelopersCapitalRealty.com

  Hey guys,,I thinks its all going to work out... I am the featured neighbor for my area,YES I AM THE KING, but I won't retain it because I won't buy it..I have learned to write posts with titles and content that get found in search engines..and I also write posts as good therapy for me. In fact, thats where this started.  I was writing on a blog called Planet Realtor that got very little in the way of feedback, but allowed me to reach out to others across Fla that were experincing the same related issues......One day Broker Bryant invited me to Active Rain..I was immediately hooked. All in all, in my area, I am the number one Realtor by about 60,000 points only because I started so much earlier...I certainly don't consider myself the number one Realtor. I just ended up with more points...

  On a Saturday morning, I am reading the paper in my small town of Leesburg Fl. Its a bit cloudy outside, and the squirrels are running about preparing for the coming rainfall. Its a small town compared to our neighbors, Orlando to the East and Ocala to the North. It nice to know that there are these big cities around us, keeping all their traffic and crime away from our area. But Leesburg has some really great qualities. We have access to the Harris Chain of Lakes, a nice sized mall, and most of our area schools have good ratings. I remember when I came here over 20 years ago. The rat race of traffic and crime from the Daytona Beach area where I had been living seemed far away once I had moved over here. Now, years later, I still feel the same way. I tune into the local (Orlando) new...
