In New Port Richey, FL -Low Home Sales Inventory Creates A New Challenge to Real Estate agents and buyers. Buyers swept in like a tornado last year and as a result inventory levels have fallen and that means we have very little to sell and not as many choices as we would wish for our buyers when they are looking for a home. Clients tend not to believe that we really don't have more than one or two homes to show them. In zip codes 34652, 34653, 34654, and 34655, the number of single family homes for sale is now at 779. Last year at this time, the numbers were well over one thousand. The range of prices is from $3,749,998 (Gulf Harbors South Beach waterfront) to $18,000 (for a bank-owned in Shamrock Heights). REOs = 80, Short Sales = 95. In those same zip codes, condo, townhouse, and vill...

The elevation certificate is a FEMA approved form used for filing the results of a ground elevation survey.  This elevation certificate gives the homes elevation from the base flood line.  This elevation certificate is important for obtaining homeowners insurance when the home is located in a "flood zone".  The elevation certificate will provide the information needed to give you a fair insurance rate since not every home in a flood zone has the same elevation and should be insured based on their individual elevation. Let's say your home in at an elevation of 10' above the base flood line and the home 2 doors down has an elevation of 3' above the base flood line, we can assume that the house down the street may flood more easily while yours may not flod at all. This information may resu...

Shayna  wants the warm weather to return; it's cold in Florida but not for long. Yesterday was too cold for her, it was 33* and she didn't like it. Today is a few degrees warmer. (41) and she still doesn't like it. I know we are much warmer than most of you and you are probably laughing but it's all in what you get used too. Our sympathies to you all.      According to the weatherpersons; it will be in the 80's on Saturday; hard to believe right now. We all hope you are safe and managed to keep warm.     Recent Posts The Yellow Dog Project- What Is It? Suncoast Art Festival at Wiregrass Everyday I’m Shuffling Do You Hear What I Hear?

New Year's Day dawned wet and chilly. It rained almost all day and sometimes the rain was heavy. But did that stop the golfers from playing the Timber Greens course....don't be silly. And, I stepped out in the rain to get this photo so who is the silliest?     They had their side curtains up and were trying to brave it out but finally gave up and went back to the Clubhouse. So does this make the golf cart the new Ark?   Recent Posts The Yellow Dog Project- What Is It? Suncoast Art Festival at Wiregrass Everyday I’m Shuffling Do You Hear What I Hear?
