The following are the market sales statistics for Maitland, Seminole and Orange Counties, Florida for June 2010.  Maitland is made up of the zip code 32751.  For purposes of this analysis we will be 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 divided by the numbe...

Greater Orlando/Central Florida Luxury Short Sales in January 2010 You may have heard that selling a house as a Short Sale is difficult. Short Sales aren’t difficult. They are tedious, time-consuming, frustrating, require a great deal of patience and enormous quantities of aspirin. In the end, Short Sales are worth the headaches because they allow homeowners to avoid foreclosure, keep their credit from being destroyed, and move out and move on.

Maitland, one of the oldest municipalities in Central Florida, is a beautifully historic town made up of elegantly lined streets and spectacular housing communities. It is a very quiet suburb about 30 minutes outside of downtown Orlando, and as a result many families with children move here for its unfussy nature and respectable school system. Surrounded by many beautiful lakes and picturesque parks, Maitland is home to many distinctive and historic places. The Enzian Theater, Central Florida's only full time independent movie theater, is home to the Florida Film Festival. Also, numerous houses are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Maitland Art Center is another facility that attracts many visitors. Many well-known companies are headquartered in Maitland, like EA ...

Don’t lose your home to foreclosure. These smart homeowners didn’t. Instead, they put their home on the market as a Short Sale.   Street Date Sold Original List Price Sold Price Beds Baths Sq Ft Pool MELANIE 10/30/09 $1,025,000 $417,000 4 4 4313 N   Properties have been listed and sold by various MLS members. Data drawn from the My Florida Regional Multiple Listing Service.   Because the payoff of a loan will be ‘shorted’ by a significant amount, the mortgage lender must approve a Short Sale. Handled properly, the likelihood of successfully selling your house as a Short Sale is high. Once the Short Sale is behind you, you can often get on with your life with hardly a backward glance. A Short Sale is nothing more than putting your house up for sale in the usual manner, waiting for a qual...

These smart homeowners didn’t have to lose their house to foreclosure. Instead, they hired a real estate agent to help them sell their house as a Short Sale. By finding a ready, willing, and able buyer, they were able to stop foreclosure proceedings in their tracks and walk away with a clean ‘financial’ bill of health. In some cases, they may have had to sign a promissory note for a percentage of their total obligation. The important thing, however, is that they were able to salvage the ruinous credit rating they would have incurred with a foreclosure. Better yet, in as little as two years — or even less — they’ll be able to purchase a new home with a conventional mortgage.

I'm going to make this a short one... it's Saturday after all, but wanted to put this out there just the same. With all the negativity out in the world today hitting us from every angle, let's face it, it's tough to keep ourselves from feeling anxiety, from being stressed out, from being worn down. Yet in spite of all of this, there are still people out there with big smiles, boundless energy, and they're selling real estate like crazy. How are they maintaining this glow around them? How are they keeping themselves so incredibly pumped up and excited? On the opposite end of this, there's people out there so unbelievably depressed they are actually shutting down their entire lives one little piece at a time. So... the question here is this: What is it that makes the happy people happy an...

If you read my blogs, you know a bit about what I do but what I've recently discovered is that agents and brokers out there seem to think they either can't afford me or aren't sure I can do what I say I can. So this post is, as titled, an admittedly shameless plug, that will hopefully put an end to these terrible myths ;) First off here's a run down list of things I've done for others that I can also potentially do for you: Saved them hundreds of dollars per month by consolidating systems/services subscribed to and actually made them more efficient and profitable for having done so Took an agent apologizing to her sellers for taking a 4% commission to proudly bringing in listings at 7 and 8% commission Trained agents in ways their offices never did, enabling them to have total confidenc...
