I like to contact expired listings of Ocala Florida Homes . It is my opinion that many sellers weren`t advised by their former Realtors about the market shift in prices reduction. I don`t know how many Realtors call expired listings, but for a great education of "Seller Denial" you should! Many s...

The first fundamental of investing is value.  Value or market value of an investment is the most basic concept of investing.  Value is what a willing buyer will pay.I remember back in 1974 I was a freshman in college and one of the courses I took was Investment 101.  This course focused on the st...

Property values are declining, the key thought now is buyer options.  There are more options for the serious buyer than ever before.  Two years ago sellers faced competition from only a few other homes on the market in their subdivision.  Now, savvy buyers are expanding their searches north to Ga...

 It may be hard to believe but Ocala does have an airport. The Ocala International Airport to be exact. Now we don't actually have major airlines. Scheduled air service was discontinued in the early 1980's after Eastern and Allegheny Commuter Airlines terminated their operations here in Ocala. Wi...

  Marion Oaks was built without sidewalks and that over sight will be rectified in the not so distant future. The original developer laid out wide 2 lane boulevards with tree studded grassy meridian dividers but didn't install either sidewalks or many street lights.  A recent article in The Ocala...

The pace of life is slower here, a southern style of living unusual for Florida, but it is what makes Ocala unique from any other part of the country. Sometimes it is easy to forget about the r...
