I had heard there was a new park in Clermont, Florida, so I decided to take my littlest one over to check it out. This is just one of the many reasons I love Clermont. In my opinion, it has a lot of things to do for families with kids.   The park is located over on 12th street, just before the bridge. For as long as I have lived in Clermont (over 20 years), the strip of land running alongside Lake Minneola had been vacant. Good to see that some people donated time, work and materials to make another nice little area for families to enjoy.       Nothing extravagant, but it gives you a nice of the lake as well. They also added several picnic tables under a couple trees.     The water was a little choppy today, but on most days, Lake Minneola is beautiful.     Apparently, everything was do...

I recently stumbled across this picture and was fascinated by it. This is the first Publix in Clermont, Florida.     It used to be an All American Grocery store back in 1958, but was purchased by Publix. This was located I believe on Montrose Street, just down the street from Hanks Electric. Publix used this store until the South Lake Plaza opened in 1965. For those of you wondering, the South Lake Plaza is now where Gold's Gym and Kmart is. The founder of Publix, George Jenkins, dontated this old location to the city of Clermont to be used as a civic auditorium. It was named Jenkins Auditorium. I bet many of you have been in Jenkin's Auditorium and never knew it used to be Clermont's first Publix!!!

Orchilles, a Realtor with Keller Williams Classic Realty in Orlando, helped the young couple purchase their first home in the 34711 real estate market. The home belonged to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD for short. It had come to HUD’s possession as a foreclosure and the first time home buyers used the HUD $100.00 down payment program on a FHA secured loan. The first time home buyers had been searching for a home for quite some time, and because of a very competitive real estate market in Central Florida, they had placed several offers prior to the Clermont home, only to find that they lost the bid to an investor, cash, or conventional loan buyer. When they began working with Francisco Orchilles, he suggested that they focus their search on HUD homes because the...

Post Office Closing in Clermont FLPost Office that’s located inside the Circle K on Lakeshore Drive in Clermont FL will be closing their doors on March 15, 2013.I personally liked the convenience of getting gas and take care of my mailing business at the same time. I will truly miss this location around Christmas! Lines were always short compared to other post offices in Clermont, I didn’t have to make it a mission to make a trip to the Post Office. If you live in SW side of Clermont and currently use the Post Office on Lakeshore Drive, you only have three more days to visit this tiny post office that served us well over the years.  No matter how small or large, it's always sad to see a business shut it's doors I will miss having a Post Office at the gas station!There are two other Post...

  There were 86 Single Family Homes Sold in Clermont Florida (Zip Code 34711) in December 2012. Another good month for traditional sales. The non distressed sale continues to dominate the Clermont Florida Real Estate Market. If you look at the stats below, traditinal sales also went up in price as well. The market is continuing to move to a sellers market. REO/Bank Owned sales continues a downward trend, which is very good for the traditional seller. Closed Short Sales stayed pretty steady. With the Debt Forgiveness Act Extended, I look for short sales to slow down a bit due to lenders not being under pressure now to close them as fast. Below are the average statistics: REO/Bank Owned:  $141,744.00 or $62.15 per sq. ft. Short Sale: $175,117.00 or $74.60 per sq. ft. Traditional Sale: $2...

Today was kind of a slow day, so I decided to just drive around Clermont Florida and enjoy the winter (well I say winter, I was actually in jeans and a tshirt) weather. I took a few pictures while I was out. Hope you enjoy them.   This is Lake Minneola. One of several lakes in the Clermont Chain of Lakes. The tall white thing you see sticking up is the Citrus Tower. It was one of Lake County's first "attraction". The white sandy area to the right is Jaycee Beach. There they have grills for cooking out, playground, volleyball nets and a covered pavilion. The Clermont Trail, which has 26 miles and runs to Apopka, starts right around here.   This picture just makes me smile. I love Clermont and the lakes we get to enjoy. So peaceful. There is so much blue in this picture that it almost doe...
