John Anderson in Ormond Beach...What is in the name for us?  How often do we drive streets named after someone day after day and year after year ... and have no clue who that is? What do we tell our children if they ask us who was that person that they named the street, we live on, after? If you are in Daytona Beach, especially if you are in Ormond Beach,  you would hear this name: John Anderson. Yes, John Anderson Drive is one of the most beautiful streets with gorgeous residences along the Intracoastal. It starts from Granada Avenue (SR-40) right across from the Casements - the last home of the richest man in the world John Rockefeller,and it goes north following the curves of the river. It starts with Ormond Heritage Condominiums, which address is 1 John Anderson Drive. But who was J...

Open house on Saturday for this direct Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Home in Ormond Beach on exclusive John Anderson Dr. This home fell victim to the crisis like so many others. If asked about it 4 years ago and I would laugh at the idea of these properties going for less than the price of land. Similar lot a bit farther north was sold in September 2006 for $837K. But this is exactly what happened. This 2,877 SF direct riverfront home was listed in 2007 for $1,199,000. And on Saturday we are running an Open House hoping to get an offer in $500s. The house underwent a massive remodeling in the last 3 years. Intracoastal Waterfront with magnificent views of Tomoka Basin over protective island.Short walk to the beach. Potential and room to expand. Everything is new from Jenn-Aire Applianc...

Ormond-by-the-Sea Real Estate. Information & Market Reports by Lisa Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!" This real estate update is for the 2009 1st quarter real estate listings and sales report for Ormond-by-the-Sea Florida. As I've done with some of the other city reports for the 1st quarter of Volusia county, in this report I'll include a short explanation of the Daytona Beach area, and the 7 cities it encompasses. Ormond-by-the-Sea is quite simply, the city on the farthest north side of Volusia County, but it's only on the beachside. Ormond-by-the-Sea is a unique city; unlike other cities in Volusia County. It's the last city before Flagler county, and it seems appropiate that it feels like it bridges that gap.  The further north you travel on A1A, the more it begins to feel like the Flagler ...

I am a bit behind with the calendar, and this event took place already a week and a half ago, but knowing that better late, than never, I am blogging about it now. This was a perfect Sunday afternoon. Ormond Beach. I never heard about a Confederate Memorial Day, and could not expect it in our politically correct society, but hey, here it was. The event took place at Pilgrims Rest Cemetery. Actually, this was a 100-year anniversary of the cemetery, and it was fascinated to see and hear Nancy Partridge, a descendant of the cemetery’s land donor. Activities were free and included the cannon fire, gun salutes by Confederate re-enactors, readings at the grave sites… I did not know that there are 7 grave sites of confederate soldiers, who lived in the area. They mostly died at a rather good a...

Yesterday I posted a price reduction on one of my listings, a 3/2 close to Ormond Beach now listed at $209,900. I thought the best way to show buyers and the sellers the competition, was to run a search of like homes.  RealBird lets you use zip code, or city, or neighborhood - it's an open menu box, and then you limit by distance from there, price range, bed/bath, type of property, and key words. So here's my widget showing 34 matching properties.  Limits were zip code, distance 3 miles, single family, $175,000-$275,000, 3 bedrooms/2 baths.  These aren't solely MLS listings but may be - the data source is Google Base. It gives you one more tool to provide property information to your clients and provide more service. RealBird has a free version (with ads) but I chose the $99/year ad-fre...

In an effort curve further contractings in US economy the Federal Reserve decided to buy up nearly $2 Trillion of non-traditional assetts while leaving key interest rates low. "Job losses, declining equity and housing wealth and tight credit conditions have weighed on consumer sentiment and spending," the Fed's monetary-policy committee said this afternoon in announcing its move. Now the Fed previously stated it planed to buy just $600 Billion in mortgage bonds, U.S. Treasury Bonds and other securities on the open market, but is now planning closer to tripple that amount at $1.75 Trillion. So, how does this affect housing? In the short run...offen these policies impact mortgage rates causing them to lower.  In this case...rates should be back a records lows.  Experts are saying this cou...

A Great Time To Buy Ormond By The Sea Homes & Condos This is a great time to buy Ormond By The Sea homes and condos. The inventory of properties for sale is high giving buyers many choices in any given price range. Mortgage rates continue to be low and are very attractive. Values and prices have come down to where they were prior to the significant increases of a few years ago. All these factors make Ormond By The Sea homes and condos more affordable than in the past several years. Add to that the fact that many sellers of real estate are becoming more flexible due to the economic conditions and their inability to sell at the "peak" prices. There is also the availability of the $8,000 first time home buyer credit. Go to http://webapps2.planetrealtor.com/idx/pkg_IDX.pr_IDXSearch?sStateID...
