Tropical Storms, Hurricanes, and Tornadoes oh my!!!  We are all fine here in Pensacola Florida.  We had a lot of wind and rain and numerous tornadoes.  None of the tornadoes touched down as far as I know.  I was getting my early morning coffee at Circle K and the lady there told me she watched as 5, yes, 5 tornadoes passed by the store.  Thankfully none of those touched down.  Now that Gustav is gone, we are watching Hannah and the dreaded IKE.  I might be a little concerned about Ike.  It is the Hurricane season and I will be glad when it is over.

 The information coming in from all areas shows mortgage rates going up and will continue to increase! We have rate protection. Lock in without a contract, up to 90 days no fee to lock! If rates go up one is safe, if rates go down 1X float down no fee to float down to current lower rate. Call me! Anytime! Our company offers rate protection and I personally think this is great. Why not be protected when your shopping for the right home. If you already found the perfect home why not be protected through the underwriting process. Things unexpected come up and you may lose your rate. I'd rather be safe especially in today's market. Amanda

  It's a tough market out there for home sellers! Pricing are continuing to drop with no definitive end in sight BUT there is hope...Homes are still selling! Buyers are still purchasing homes! In fact, July 2008 was one of  Team Sandy Blanton's biggest months ever in terms of sales. How do we do it, you may say? We provide our sellers with the most up to date market information available at the time of listing the home and during the listing process. This gives our sellers the chance to interpret the numbers and place their homes competitively within the marketplace. We also advise sellers that they have to win "the beauty contest and the price war". Ugly houses and houses in need of repair are especially difficult to sell in this market for anything more than investor prices. Buyers w...

Looking at a graph of residental sales for the Pensacola real estate market could make you feel a bit like you are racing down the back side of a roller coaster's big loop. The number of sales has fallen dramatically from the late 2005 and early 2006 highs. However, actual Pensacola area home sale prices haven't fallen nearly as dramatically. What are the numbers and what do they mean? Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties (Pensacola Area) Total Number of Single Family Resales Last week I attended a presentation by Al Muller from Metro Market Trends, a company that has been tracking and reporting on real estate sales since 1990. Some of the points he made about Pensacola area real estate home sales trends are well worth sharing. The graph above shows a 12 month moving average of actual home ...

Are Foreclosure Homes Truly Deals? Foreclosed homes have become the mantra to first time buyers and real estate investors. It is important to know the pros and cons of foreclosures, particularly if you have never worked with distressed properties before. Don't be taken in by late night promises of buying pristine properties for pennies on the dollar. It rarely happens. Every experienced investor knows that foreclosures are rarely bargains and almost always include expensive renovations. Furthermore, the best deals generally get snapped up before they go on the block. Foreclosures are generally distressed properties, often in poor shape with undocumented deferred maintenance. Once bidding begins ...  You can read the rest of this article at: http://gibbons-realty.blogspot.com/2008/06/are...

Buyer's Market in Pensacola . . . But Things Look to be Changing! Most experts agree, once you exceed six months of housing inventory in a local real estate market, you are in a Buyer's Market. And like most of the country, the Greater Pensacola Bay Area has found itself in a buyer's market for more than two years now. But is a shift afoot? The numbers seem to say so. Our average selling price has stabilized, or crept up, depending on which month you choose as your cutoff point. And our inventory, while at a whopping 15.44 months for the month ending in May, was a far cry from the height of 24.46 months back in January. And while there was plenty of bad news to focus on in the annual "State of the Nation's Housing" report issued today by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard U...

Pensacola Real Estate Headlines Don't Tell the Entire Story . . . Today's Pensacola News Journal's feature story on the local real estate market was headlined "Area Home Sales Continue to Slide." But within the same newspaper another real estate article was headlined ""Prices Remain Higher Despite More Competition, Fewer Buyers." Both of these headlines ring true, but there are back stories (Aren't there always?). The first article points out that we are seeing significantly fewer sales; 599 in May of '08 vs. 870 in May of '07, but doesn't really explore the fact that actual prices aren't declining by much.  The second article hits this, pointing out that our prices aren't coming down in relation to the declining number of sales. Sellers (potential sellers!) are clinging to their higher...

Downtown Pensacola - Fiestas, Festivals and French Architecture - Could you have more fun than watching the merriment of costume clad people tossing candy and beads? Every summer Pensacolians line the downtown streets for the Fiesta of Five Flags procession and parade. And every summer I do my  best to be in town to catch the goodies during the Fiesta festivities! The parade route winds its way through the center of downtown Pensacola, passing bystanders on the street and merry makers lining the balconies of upstairs New Orleans style condos and apartments. The parade usually boasts twenty or more floats, McGuire's bagpipe marching band, twirlers, and more. This year marks the 59th Fiesta of Five Flags. The event started in the 1940s as a way to promote tourism. It marks the landing on ...

It's Raining Real Estate Contracts in Pensacola - Okay, it never fails. Those of us who have been in real estate for ANY time know the scenario well. Get in your car or hop on a plane; anytime you head out of town, HERE COME THE REAL ESTATE CONTRACTS! In my small office on Pensacola Beach we joke that if we hit a dry spell in terms of real estate contracts all we need to do is plan a vacation. So, on Wednesday as I got in the car for my six hour drive to Atlanta to start my vacation the first call came in to negotiate a real estate contract. Thank goodness for real estate teams, portable computers and cell phones. By the time I hit rush hour traffic in Atlanta I had three properties under contract. The great news about this is that they are all properties that have been on the market fo...
