He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Up from the grave He arose, With a mighty triumph o'er His foes, He arose a Victor from the dark domain, And He lives forever with His saints to reign, He arose! He arose! Hallelujah, Christ arose! "He is not here: for he is risen, as he said" - Matthew 28:6 (KJV) May the Lord bless you and yours this day, as we celebrate our risen saviour, Jesus Christ. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.

Keller Williams Classic short sale expert, Francisco Orchilles, gets another Wells Fargo short sale closed in Winter Park, FL. The short sale was negotiated with the lender with the help of a short sale negotiator. The buyer used cash to purchase the piece of Orlando real estate. The short sale process started in November 2012 and closed in March 2013, taking a total of about 4 months. Wells Fargo approved the short sale at the initial purchase price of the contract. Orlando short sale expert, Francisco Orchilles, says, “Short sale waiting periods have been consistently getting shorter and shorter in the past 12 months. Short sale inventory in the Orlando real estate market has also become scarce as more homeowners are able to sell their homes in a traditional equity sale. Nevertheless,...

I noticed a couple of expired listings recently that had each been on the market for over 300 days. If you read my blog or follow me on twitter @RealtyOptimist, you know there are not a lot of homes available for sale in Orlando. The lack of inventory even appears to be effecting our pending and closed transactions. It begs the question why did these home listings expire after such a long time on the market. These particular houses were both upscale custom homes in Winter Park. They were both listed in the $700,000 range which is pretty much the average list price in Winter Park. Again, you ask, why didn’t they sell? The answer is one that many sellers do not wish to hear, but buyers are really the ones who define the market. If you try to sell something, but nobody is buying you say th...

Winter Park Florida- Condo For Sale. Winter Park is a city within Orange County that is rich in culture and hertiage. Winter Park is a city of about 28,486 residents located just north of Orlando in Orange County, Florida. One of Florida's finest cities, it is famous for its stately trees, abundant parks, brick-lined streets, spectacular homes, museums, vibrant lakes and fine shops along Park Avenue. Chartered in 1887, the city was originally developed as a winter resort for wealthy Northerners seeking refuge from the harsh winters and a tranquil place to rest and relax. Fortunately, the city has maintained its natural beauty throughout the years. The city was originally named Lakeview in 1858 and re-named Osceola in 1870. Eleven years later, the name Winter Park was chosen by its foun...

2013 Outlook Promising for Winter Park Vacation Homes According to the National Association of Realtors®, last year the number of sales for vacation homes continued to rise following the staggering 64.5% gain in all investment home sales for 2011.  The consensus has it that promising statistics are likely to repeat in 2013. Perhaps it is an improvement in Winter Park's vacation homes outlook, or maybe it's because of the recent media focus on personal tax issues…whatever the reason, it looks as if 2013 may be seen as a particularly inviting time to make a first vacation home investment. Although I don't offer tax advice (your CPA and financial advisor take care of that), there are several general reasons it makes good sense for some people to consider investing in Winter Park vacation h...

Amazon Vision Ministries Amazon Vision Ministries The sun's setting in The Amazon before long.  Same as it did yesterday, the day before and the day before that. Folks in the Amazon Basin see the same sun the rest of us do- but might just see it a bit differently as they view it through poverty-stricken eyes. The Amazon surely has it's beauty and intrigue- and sights like The Meeting of The Waters (above, right) strain the imagination. The Rio Negro meets the Upper Amazon River here- yet the waters' temperature and weight differences prevent the two rivers' water from merging together and they run side-by-side for a while before parting. All's not well along The Amazon, though. The Amazon Basin is home to upwards of 1.5 million folks who live virtually isolated from the rest of civilize...

Christmas 2012- Upcoming events at Aloma (Baptist) Church Christmas 2012- Upcoming events at Aloma (Baptist) Church   “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy…” Psalm 107:1-2   Yes, it’s the Christmas Season, America! It’s not “Xmas Season”, not “Happy Holidays time” and most certainly not “Santa Claus Season”- for as cool as that fat fella may be, he does still owe me a pony.   No, we’re in the midst of that special time of the year when we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ- He who knew no sin, yet came down to take on human form so that we could understand His righteousness and His teachings. We still have a lot to learn…   My church- Alom...

 Operation Christmas Child 2012 underway! Operation Christmas Child 2012 underway! I’m so glad that my church- Aloma (Baptist) Church, Winter Park, FL- has once again partnered with Rev. Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse organization for another year. Last year, our church had a lofty goal:  filling, collecting and sending 1,000 shoeboxes.  When all was said and done, our church had collected over 1,300 shoeboxes- and they were on their way to other parts of the world where they were surely going to make a difference in some children’s lives.  Some children (such as the one from Haiti in the photo above) might never have gotten a gift prior to the shoebox nor one since- but I’m told there were smiles all around when the shoeboxes arrived. This year’s goal?  More shoeboxes, of course! ...

Winter Park, FL:  R.I.P., Free Speech Winter Park, FL kills Free Speech Death is always a strange thing- the most somber of stages in the circle.  What caused the death?  Was it expected- or was it a tragic accident that stilled the dearly departed? Here in Winter Park, Florida, there's no question what caused the death of our dearly departed Free Speech:  it was none other than the Winter Park City Commission. As the article discusses, there were a number of folks who chose to exercise their Constitutionally-guaranteed right of free speech a month or so ago.  Funny thing, though- Winter Park has chosen to side with Jenna Tosh, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando rather versus that dusty ol' "U.S. Constitution" thing. This is a decision that should shock the nation.  Our Consti...

I'm going to share a very personal story with you... the story of what has held me back in my life and I ask that you read it, and ask yourself the very same question,"What is holding ME back?". Hopefully it creates the breakthrough for you that it has for me and sees you through much future success.  Like many people who have chosen the real estate industry for their career, I am energetic, ambitious, full of life, friendly, social, and enjoy a little bit of crazy in my day. I'm a risk taker... not afraid to get myself out there and strive for something. Hey, if I fail, at least I know one more thing that won't work, right? Most people who meet me enjoy being around me because of my gregarious nature. Here's the thing though... I haven't always been this way and deep down I had doubts ...

Florida Home Buyers Beware when Seller cheaps out on repairs...    Sellers "cheaping out" on repairs happens much too often.  The Florida Home seller who is contractually obligated to fix a few things hires the cheapest handyman to just slap the job together...or maybe even lets the 14 year old son who needs an allowance do it. Sorry, but that is not acceptable.  The Florida Far-Bar contract calls for repairs to be completed in a workman like manner with a licensed person.  It also states that they have to provide buyer with receipts for any repairs or warranties.  I expect both. I have a closing right now that is being delayed because the seller does not have a invoice for replacing the electrical panel (lender condition) and Seller was contractually obligated to hire a licensed electr...

Exclusive Buyer Agreement Misconceptions   An Exclusive Buyer Agreement is a Buyer "Listing" agreement no different than a Seller "Listing" agreement.  A Buyer listing is an agreement to find the buyer a home, just like a seller listing agreement is to sell the sellers property. An Exclusive Buyer Agreement only means that the buyer will work "exclusively" with that licensee and not work with other offices. The Exclusive Buyer Agreement needs to have a start and end date, and the terms under which the buyer will buy and by what means the agent will be compensated.                                  Here is some clarity for  the most common Exclusive Buyer Agreement Misconceptions:   An Exclusive Buyer Agreement DOES NOT MAKE ANY AGENT AN EXCLUSIVE BUYERS AGENT...Exclusive Buyers Agents ON...

You may be the top producer in your office but did you know there are three parts of a successful real estate career that most agents completely leave out of their business? In today's world, we know how important these things are yet many of us don't take them seriously. Incorporate these three major items into your business and watch your life and business soar into the clouds of perfection. Master Agent Mobility Staying on the up and up in technology isn't about having the latest gadget. It's about making your life easier. Remember the days of the DOS MLS? Searching for homes by code in DOS, no pictures whatsoever, and then the continuous paper pile delivered by the dot matrix printer... I don't think any of us misses those days! Technology has done wonders for the real estate indust...
