Saturday April 30 was a Turtle Day in Ponce Inlet, FL. Run by Marine Science Center (MSC), the event started at 10 AM at the MSC in Ponce Inlet, and ended somewhere after 3 PM after the release of a few seagulls, pelicans, and two turtles back into their natural habitat. «The April 30 event will culminate in the likely release of an adult loggerhead sea turtle. Akasha arrived at the center Nov. 6, 2009. Akasha is a remarkable story in resilience. She was admitted to the MSC near death, with a severe head injury caused by a boat propeller. The injury not only split her skull open, but also broke her jaw in 2 places and put gashes in her shell, and also sliced her right front flipper. Her broken jaw did not allow rehabbers to tube feed her, so a feeding tube was surgically inserted throug...

This is a market report for condo units in Harbour Village, Ponce Inlet. If you would like to see the prices in the Links, which is part of Harbour Village, check The Links at Harbour Village, Ponce Inlet. This blog covers condo units in Harbour Village, which are not in The Links. Presently there are 23 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units for sale. Traditionally, in this part of Harbour Village between Peninsula Ave and the Halifax River, where there is a main pool, 142-slip Marina, prices were always a bit higher than in The Links. And if you see the same in the 2 bdr unit category, where in The Links the units start pennies under $200K, and here the lowest priced 2 bdr unit is $211K, the difference is not as significant as it used to be. As for the lowest price for a 3 bdr unit, this...

The market is moving. I can say it again and again. I was checking for a client the units there just a few days ago, and 2 condos are already gone. At the same time the prices are pretty good, but do not expect lower prices in the Link. These were the same prices as in January 2010. Who listens, listen. The Links are two cloverleaf-style 7-story buildings with a circular garage in the middle and 4 wings. Though it is a part of a larger development – Harbour Village, the Links have their own gate. The buildings are surrounded by a 3 par 9 hole executive golf course. If you play, great. If you do not play -  enjoy the scenery, as there are not many condo development with any land, and, subsequently with much green. The buildings are across the street from the Ocean, and some unit have vie...

The email read: "Could you explain how much would it cost me in taxes if I buy a condo in the Links? I heard that Florida has very high taxes." You often hear that we have high property taxes in Florida. There is no simple answer here. First, your taxes and Seller’s taxes may be not the same. Taxes are being assessed every year, and they will be based on the purchase price and many other parameters, so I won’t be able to predict the exact amount of taxes. But we sure can guess, and will be pretty close in our guess. Because the taxes are calculated not from the market value, but rather assessed value, and assessed value is the function of the budget, and not the reflection of the market values for these properties.  The Links is part of Harbour Village, a gated residential community in ...

In 2010 there were 34 homes sold in Ponce Inlet, which is a quiet Daytona neighbor on the southern tip of the island. The population is just a bit over 3,000 people, and this is an excellent place to be whether you are a young family raising children or a retiree looking for quality time. Somebody joked that if you believe that Ponce Inlet is a quaint fishing town, as Ponce Inlet often been touted, then you would need to add that fishermen are retired generals and other elite from Washington, DC,  New York, and other cool places. Let us look at real estate, mainly at sale of single family homes. The lowest price was $161,000 for a 3/2 small home (1,456 sq. ft.) home built in 1976 and the highest priced 4/4 home (4,423 sq. ft.) was sold by a fellow ActiveRainer Joyce Marsh for $2,000,000...

Towers Six Condominium in Ponce Inlet was built by Dimucci Development Corporation of Port Orange, a developer of commercial properties in Chicago area since 1935. I am not sure whether the company builds any commercial properties in Central Florida, but it s well know in Volusia County and in Daytona Beach Shores – Ponce Inlet with condos under Towers name. Nine of them are in Ponce Inlet, a quaint small town on the southern tip of the Peninsula. Perfect place to live or have a vacation home. maybe the best place of all complising greater Daytona area.  Later the company built Towers Ten in 2001, Towers Grande in 2004 and DiMucci Twin Towers in 2007. They are all easily recognizable. Not really fancy architecturally, they are sturdy and simple properties. All outside corridors, all pre...

Ponce Inlet is the farthest town from the bustling Daytona Beach, a quiet small town ending at the Lighthouse Park washed by water on three sides. The park is very popular and it is not unusual to have difficult time finding parking by the pavilion. The sky never fully cleared, but over the ocean toward the horizon there was a blue opening and the sun played with the colors of the clouds changing them from bright white to pink going into light magenta… The soft light of the evening painted the beach in the most unusual color combinations, which were changing with every wave washing away the God’s creation only to be immediately replaced by another magical scene. The sun broke through the clouds, and sent still filtered light onto the beach and the sky. The condos, dark in the counter li...

And I am the hijacker... After all this time I finally succumbed to my wife's pressure to take the account over. Olga is a wonderful wife of 40 years, but she is not a blogger, and my attempts to make her one did not succeed. She does not like her phone to ring on business, as she is much better with customers face-to-face rather than on the phone. She is better than me with showings, and I exploit it. She can remember such details about the houses that I am stunned by it. I do not remember these details about the kitchens of houses that I have seen 2 years ago, I actually do not even remember that the house had a kitchen… I guess I am better at some other things and she exploits it. But at least now she will be happy to know that I will stop harassing her. The funny thing that I am sur...
