 Tampa homebuyers...ever just think "Ug...the process is too much!" Many home buyers, in Tampa and throughout Florida, like to have a plan when going through the process of qualifying for a mortgage and buying a home.  There is so much information available on mortgages, but sometimes it is just too much for a consumer to sort out on their own.  When my customer is a first time home buyer,  I can anticipate they like to know what to expect from the home buying process.  I will never forget one experience I had with a gentleman that was referred to me by a past client.  He was 36 and had lived with his parents his whole life.  He made good income at his job and was sure he was finally ready to buy a home.  After the closing he said, "Leah, if I would have known buying a house and getting...

Tampa Bay, Florida ~ What has happened to the courting process in our mortgage services industry?  I receive at least one call a week from a potential home buyer or home owner looking to refinance in Tampa and these consumers are just interested in "finding out their mortgage options".  It's okay!  I am happy to discuss options with a consumer without having to pull a credit report or push them into a mortgage with me.Many times, consumers are just looking to discuss their options with a professional.  And they have every right to do so!  I believe that our industry has been filled with order-takers who have been trained to pull a credit report and then sell a mortgage program.  This is so unfair to the consumer who really needs to be educated and understand all the options available.  ...

Forbes Magazine recently reported that according to Moody's Economy.com, Tampa can expect a burn off of its inventory of homes in the first quarter of 2008, followed by an increase of 10.8% in prices.  Tampa is considered to be in a "V-Recovery" in part due to its previous rapid decline, strong local economy, and low subprime lending.  So, perhaps this prediction of a bottoming of the Tampa housing market followed by a quick increase in prices will motivate buyers to act sooner than later.For the complete article, click on Forbes.Russ Perlowski:  Selling homes in Tampa, Land O Lakes, and Wesley Chapel, FL

OK so we wrapped up a little earlier today to meet up with some of our favorite gals for our 2nd Wednesday of the month "Girls Night out at The Melting Pot".Normally it's $35 for a 4 course fondue meal with Tip and Taxes included.This week it was $45 because they donated $10 from each meal to St Judes.  What a great donation huh?!This event is open to the public, you just have to call the melting pot the 1st day of the month and make your reservations and pick the seating time of 5:30 or 8:00 pm.This event has started to become popular in Tampa!  If you are not in Tampa, you gals should check your local melting pot (if you are fortunate enough to have one) and see if they do it in your area.  We really enjoy it, its a great way to reconnect with some of your friends once a month - kidle...

Don't Be!It would be unwise to take too much to heart the many naysayers' laments that real estate has tanked in Hillsborough County, Florida. Sure, it's a Buyers' Market, and, yes, it will take 1-1/2 years to sell off all of the existing inventory.  But the good news is we have strong job growth in our area, mortgage rates are low, and the investors are all but gone.Are you a seller wondering if now is the right time to place your home on the market? Are you ready to move up....or downsize? Are you living in a cramped apartment and want to experience the pride of owning your very own home?I believe that it is nearly impossible to "time the market."  And I'm here to advise you that a FLAT or SLOW market does not matter (very much) and should not be causing you to lose sleep at night won...

St. Joseph's Cancer Institute in Tampa, Florida, has received permission from the Food and Drug Administration to offer a potential new therapy to treat breast cancer that has become advanced liver cancer. The new treatment is called SIRT (Selective Internal Radiation Therapy) and it is hoped that the treatment will kill tumors selectively without harming the liver. The cost for the therapy will be about $50,000 and, since Medicare has indicated it will pay for the treatment, we can hope most insurance companies will follow suit. You can contact St. Joseph's Hospital at (813) 870-4160 with any questions you may have.Read the full story at St. Petersburg Times Online.    Please click!  You will be taken to the Breast Cancer Site.  Thank you! Peggy Edwards, RealtorCitrus Park/Westchase, F...
