Wilbur-by-the-Sea is a small community nestled along the Atlantic, south of Daytona Beach.  It is a quiet residential, unincorporated area without a condo or hotel, but with stunning beachfront homes, on a no-drive part of the Daytona Beach (these are protected sand dunes which provide a natural nesting habitat for our native sea turtles). The beach consists of approximately 100 yards of soft, white, rock-free sand. Wilbur-by-the-Sea is surrounded by uncrowded, pristine beaches, nature reserves, golf courses and historic attractions.  A few minutes' walk away is Boondock's restaurant, where you can dock your boat and stop in for fish and chips (or any of their other fresh seafood dishes). Within minutes' drive is Racing's North Turn restaurant, which in the early days of motor sports se...

          Daytona Beach Shores Real Estate Reports and Events. By Lisa Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!" It's time for me to continue with my first quarter real estate reports for each city in East Volusia County. For the 1st Quarter of 2009 we're comparing New Listings, Total Number of Listings and the Number of Sales for each city. And for some cities I've separated the condo listings and sales from the houses or in one particular city (Daytona Beach Shores) we looked at the totals for each category, then just pulled the condos into a seperate category. So far we've covered Port Orange, South Daytona, Daytona Beach and Daytona Beach Shores. In this post we're going to take a quick look at Wilbur-by-the-Sea. Why are we only taking a quick look at Wilbur-by-the-Sea? For starters because Wilbur...

Ponce Inlet Real Estate & Community Events blog. By Lisa C. Hill, "THE SMART CHOICE!" Believe it or not, the photos in this post are of a house I recently sold. We just closed last week. You should know that these sellers are experienced at buying and repairing houses that need a lot of work. But this house brings new meaning to needing a lot of work! It needs a LOT of work! And just before closing we had one more problem that caused the entire ceiling in the garage to collapse. Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of that disaster. However, I do need to mention that during the course of this transaction, I had the extreme displeasure of working with the most incompetent listing agent I've ever met! I'll probably elaborate on that in a future post; with no names mentioned of course. So...

In my blog titled Daytona Beach Real Estate: 2007 Year in Review, I gave many details on the history of the Daytona Beach area real estate market over the last few years. Since Wilbur-by-the-Sea is closely linked to Ponce Inlet, and is part of the Daytona Beach area, I highly recommend you read most importantly, the Daytona Beach post, but also view the charts in each post. As I said in the Daytona Beach post, it was at the beginning of 2006 that some real estate agents in east Volusia County, where the Daytona Beach Area Association of REALTORS is located, began to report slower sales, while I personally didn't experience the market drop until July of 2006.  Meanwhile, much of the rest of the country was already a year into the real estate decline.Before I provide the real estate sale ...
