The following are the market sales statistics for Maitland, Seminole and Orange Counties, Florida for January 2009.  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 numb...

Now may be a good time to become a REALTOR or Mortgage Broker! Hard to believe? We see so many agents that got their license when the market was booming and they didn't need to market themselves as a local professional. Now someone could get their license and learn how to market themselves while others would have time to teach them the basic skills needed for marketing not just sales. We are expanding our offices in Maitland and Daytona Beach so if you are thinking about a new career or a new company to help boost your productivity, visit www.FloridaRelocationTeam.com today! Refuse to accept that the market stinks - lear how to be a top producer from TOP PRODUCERS!             Florida Relocation Team 670 N.

Reasons why homes don't sell If you have had your home on the market for several months and haven't seen much activity or any offers, chances are that one or more of the reasons below are to blame.   Your price is too high No doubt about it, the most common reason for a home not selling is that the asking price has been set too high. The reasons for setting your price too high to begin with are many. Ranging from over enthusiastic listing agents to unrealistic seller expectations. Regardless of the reason though, if you've priced your home too high, you've set yourself up for a number of obstacles to selling your home. Even if you do get an offer for the overly high asking price, the deal may fall apart before closing because the buyer may have problems financing at too high a price. Lo...

Even if you didn't vote for Obama, it's time to rally behind our new president and get everyone in the mood for recovery. If you don't believe that the economy is on the road to recovery, how can you expect buyers to be motivated to buy and feel good about their purchase?   We have all the things needed for a housing recovery; Low Prices and Low Interest Rates. With FHA Financing and only 3.5% required as a down payment, it's easy for a buyer to buy.   We all need to change the attitude of buyers and the media to stop putting a negative spin on the housing market. We are actually busy and selling a lot of homes and condo's! It's not as busy as 2006 but that was an unusual time!!!     FLORIDA RELOCATION TEAMA "STRESS-FREE" Move Across Town or Across the Country!Richard Shuman P.A.  Mortg...

Let's talk before the market gets better! I'm sure that you've heard in the news that prices in our local real estate market are CHEAP, or at the very least a GREAT DEAL.  That's certainly great news for buyers.  But, there's a chance that it won't last for long.  A BAD ECONOMY combined with a lot of first time buyers lead me to believe that NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY.  If you're looking to get into the market when prices are fair, but there's still a great opportunity to build equity, the time is now. With my background in the industry, and experience in working with buyers and negotiating with other agents, I'm perfectly suited for your needs.  Give me a call so we can talk about some of the best listings in our area that will meet your needs. Sincerely, Richard Shuman P.A.Real Estate an...

The statistics shown below indicate how fast ... or s-l-o-w ... houses are selling in your area. If you have to sell your house, you must take into account your community’s Absorption Rate. The concept is easy to understand once you understand the formula. First, you must know how many homes sold over the last year. Then you must determine the Absorption Rate, or average number of homes that have sold on a monthly basis. From the Absorption Rate, you can easily estimate how fast the current inventory of available homes will sell. The larger the current inventory—or ‘active listings’—the longer it will take any one home to sell. If there are twice as many active listings available for sale than the current absorption rate, it will take twice the amount of time, or 2 months, to sell out c...
