Here are the February 2009 stats and February 2008 for comparison - 2009 3 Homes Sold Lowest price: $228,000 Highest price: $385,000 Shortest Days on Market: 192 Longest Days on Market: 385   2008 3 homes sold Lowest price: $186,000 Highest price: $403,000 Shortest Days on Market: 105 Longest Days on Market: 412 The number of homes sold year to year has remained flat, however, that is much better than a decrease. Also, the lowest sold price increased very nicely year to year, which is not the story for many other parts of the beaches overall.  The overall days on market has increased slightly - this points somewhat to pricing, as a properly priced and property presented properties generate showings, which in turn, bring in offers. If you are not getting showings, you are not priced cor...

I know we all talk about how to price homes in the current market.  I myself check multiple avenues to ensure I'm helping my sellers to price their homes correctly.  Of course, this research takes into account the motivation of the sellers, and their timeframe, both of which are crucial components. How do you know if you are, in fact, priced correctly? One easy way is to see how many showings you are getting in the first few weeks of the listing being active.  If you have none, the unfortunate answer is your home is NOT priced correctly for the condition, age, and location of the home. If you have less than 1-2 showings per week, you are not priced correctly also. I am currently working with a seller who has had 8 showings in the first 18 days of a listing - this confirms the home is pr...

I don't know if you were able to watch part or all of the race today, or if you were one of the many who raced - if so, I applaud all of you! I watched near the half-way point, up Seminole Road, and was amazed at how many people I saw not just running or walking but supporting this fabulous cause and event. Many of us have a family member, or dear friend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and raced in their honor. The weather today was about near-perfect for the race, and we saw many smiles and happy racers.

Have you noticed how when you yawn, you prompt others to yawn? Or, how you are induced to yawn when you see another person yawn? We know yawns are an involuntary respiratory reflex, which regulates the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the blood. Therefore, yawns are, essentially, contagious. My theory on the new "yawn" is the smart phone/PDA addiction. I've noticed when I see someone check their smart phone/PDA for email, or voice mail or to text, I feel absolutely compelled to do so - hence, the new yawn. What do you observe about your own behaviors in this arena, or your coworkers?  You might be curious....   Carol Zingone is a Broker Associate with a 100% Customer Satisfaction Rating in Jacksonville Beach, FL with Prudential Network Realty.  She helps buyers and sellers throughout...

  Here are the January 2009 stats and January 2008 for comparison - 2009 1 Home Sold Price: $2,000,000 Days on Market not available   2008 2 homes sold Lowest price: $278,000 Highest price: $445,000 Shortest Days on Market:45 Longest Days on Market: 141 This shows a 50% decrease mathematically in homes sold, however, the price of the one sale already in 2009 is significantly higher than the prices reflected in 2009.  Add to this the $2,000,000 oceanfront home sold in January was a For Sale By Owner listing, or a non-represented listing the agent approached and negotiated an agreeable sales price for all parties, and you see there really is an active, thriving real estate market. If you are ready to list your home, call me for a comparable market analysis to see what price range you shou...
