                Buy a House in Countryside Community in Beautiful Port Orange Florida We're nearing the end of my series on the benefits of living in the beautiful community of Countryside in Port Orange Florida. For this post, we're going to take a look at "The Meadows", which is a section of Countryside, consisting of duplexes, quads, and triples, of condos and townhouses. Some are one-story, and some are two-stories. And location-wise, The Meadows is the closest mini-community to the Countryside pool, clubhouse, and tennis courts. If you're interested in buying real estate in Port Orange, or anywhere in the greater Daytona Beach area, I'd love to help. As a native of this area, I have comprehensive knowledge of the entire Daytona Beach area, as well as the surrounding cities. I've s...

                                        Fun at the Fountain at New Port Orange Pavilion Yesterday, I decided to try to get some sunset photos at the new Port Orange Pavilion. Unfortunately, it was overcast so I didn't get any obvious sunset photos. But I did find a beautiful fountain. Then for some icing on the cake, a very nice "mom" let me borrow her adorable children who were very nterested in the fountain. First of all, this little boy was inspecting the fountain from every angle. He seemed certain he could eventually figure it out The mom was taking pictures too. And she actually got brother and sister to hug (no way! lol) So of course, I wanted a repeat. So with the slightest bit of coaxing (I told them how cute they were; flattery gets you anywhere, at any age?), they happily ob...

               Villaggio on the Lakes, Luxury Condominiums at Countryside in Port Orange Florida. I hope my readers have been enjoying my coverage of each community in the Master HOA Community of "Countryside" in Port Orange Florida. While we do have one more "official" Countryside community, I'm going to skip it for now, in order to tell you about a luxury condominium complex on the edge of Countryside. The Condominium of Villaggio on the Lakes is within the boundaries of Countryside, as you do have to pass the Countryside entrance signs. But Villaggio has it's own amenities, including, a pool, hot tub, fitness center, lake with fountain, and walking bridges. And it just so happens I have a new listing for lease in Villagio ;-) Villaggio really is a beautiful condo complex, as you can...

     Lake Pointe in Countryside; Beautiful Port Orange Community. A Great Place to Buy a Home. If you're looking to buy affordable home, in a classy, conveniently located community, consider buying a zero lot-line, low maintenance house in Lake Pointe Community in Countryside, located in beautiful Port Orange Florida. Many home owners in Lake Pointe have chosen that particular section of Countryside due to the smaller lots, which require less work to maintain. But while the lots may be small, the houses are well-positioned so you still have your privacy. And of course, there's a good chance of you being able to buy a house directly on one of the many lakes in Countryside. If you read my post about the master community of Countryside, you already know that Countryside is the main HOA (H...

   Steeplechase in Countryside; Beautiful Port Orange Community. A Great Place to Buy a Home. This week we've been discussing the beautiful community of Countryside in Port Orange Florida. This gorgeous master community with pool clubhouse and tennis courts, holds several other communities. I personally live in The Hunt Club, which is the gated, all brick housing community in Countryside. For this post, we're taking a look at arguably, the most upscale community in Countryside; the spectacular, deed-restricted community of Steeplechase. When comparing the differences in each Countryside community, the most noticeable differences about Steeplechase are the brightly painted stucco exteriors and tiled roofs, which give Steeplechase a distinctive "South Beach" feel. Most of the homes have ...

   The Hunt Club in Countryside; Beautiful Port Orange Community. A Great Place to Buy a Home. A few days ago I posted information about the community of Countryside in Port Orange. This post is about the gated community called The Hunt Club. An important thing to know about Port Orange, is that most of the communities have Home Owner's Associations (HOA's), with governing codes and rules that actually supersede some of the city's codes and rules. When buying a house in a deed-restricted community with a strong HOA, it's important for buyers to do their own research about the Conditions, Covenants and Restrictions (CC&R's) of each particular community. If you work with a REALTOR® who uses the FAR/BAR real estate contract, it states that a copy of the CC&R's, and most recent HOA Financi...

                    Countryside Community in Port Orange. A Great Place to Buy a Home. Countryside Community in Port Orange Florida is a great place to buy a home. And I should know... I live there! Over 11 years ago, when our family was looking to buy a home, we knew we wanted to live in Port Orange. I'm a native of the Daytona Beach area, and have worked and played in every nook and cranny of Volusia county. Our family found the city of Port Orange to have the best combination of qualities we wanted. Even better, the Master Association Community of "Countryside", with it's pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, and plenty of walking and biking paths, was in an incredible location, convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. Countryside is a large "master" community that holds several "mini" c...

                   Buy New Condo in Port Orange FL with Lisa Hill, Port Orange REALTOR® Last Thursday when I was working with my international real estate clients, we were in Port Orange, looking at 4 parcels of vacant land that were all adjacent to each other. (The plan is to combine these parcels and build a muti-family investment property) As we were standing on edge of these parcels, we couldn't help but notice a beautiful, obviously new condominium, within walking distance for us, and located directly across the street from the Intracoastal Waterway. For this post, I'm simply sharing a photo I took that day. I actually took many photos, and I'll be sharing those with you soon. For now, I hope you enjoy the image of this gorgeous building, and call me if you're interested in buying...

       Speechless Sunday - More (hopefully) Embarassing Photos of My Daughter Series =) Yep. I'm continuing with my quest to embarass my daughter, by posting silly pictures of her when she was younger. (Love the braces with the blue bands in this one) But this photo is somewhat bitter-sweet. We love guineq pigs in our house. But this one had upper respiratory problems the entire time we had her. We tried everything. But she only lived a few months. And this is one of the few pictures I have of her. She had burrowed into the sleeve of my daughter's nightgown and just stuck her nose out. lol. I thought it was adorable. As for her short little life, I viewed it as her having the best home she could have, with people who loved her and took good care of her. I'm glad we were able to share o...

                            Port Orange Real Estate - Listings - Sales - Foreclosures in 2009 As a follow-up to my recent post titled "Port Orange Real Estate Listings and Sales 2000-2009 Market Report", I decided to write this post, which shows just how many of the 2009 sales were foreclosures and short sales. Once again, I've included a bar graph. For statistical purposes, on this graph I've also posted the actual numbers of how many of these real estate sales were along the lines of foreclosures, pre-foreclosures and short sales. As indicated in the bar graph, for the city of Port Orange, the 2009 real estate Foreclosure Sales and Short Sales were not as high as some other cities in Volusia County. For example, a significant number of the 2009 real estate sales for the city of Dayto...
