Things might be down, but not out.  In the Four Corners area, there is construction going on for 270-unit apartment complex which is expected to bring affordable housing to the Polk County portion o f U.S. 192.  This according the reports published in the local reporter.Despite this fact, they are expecting a large portion of their tenants to come from the tourist industry.The first apartment would not be ready for occupancy until January of 2009.  These apartments are expected to rent for $700 to $1,400 per month.Some of the features of the apartment complex will include children's playground, swimming pool, clubhouse, business center and an executive fitness center.

Today, I decided to go out and show a couple of foreclosure homes to a potential buyer. The buyer's a Broker from up north ....so, it was fun.The house, we looked at, sounded pretty decent in the MLS, 5 bedrooms 4.5 baths with over 2800 sq ft living area and only 4 years old with an in ground pool!! You know, I know that REOs can look pretty rough inside but I figured it's only 4 years old and it's in a very good neighborhood, how bad can it be?The home sold for $375,000 in 2006 and was foreclosed on mid 2007. It's currently on the market for $204,900!!!! I figured it would be worth about $250,000 if it was in pristine condition. Well needless to say it wasn't exactly in pristine condition.When we pulled up front it didn't look too bad. Good solid structure and roof. Upon opening the do...

 The Great American Hot Air Balloon Ride ~ Good Morning Davenport!A good friend woke me very early this morning with a phone call.  While on the phone I heard this strange noise in my backyard...  Open up the shades and there were two Hot Air Balloons flying rather low in my backyard!  Never one to miss an opportunity to feature something on my BLOG, I run grab my camera and take a bunch of photos.  Only after I sit down to look at my photos do I realize I was waving to the people in the balloon in my nightgown, hair not brushed -- they must have had a good laugh...  Thank God they didn't land here, that would have been even more embarrassing!   Here are some of the Hot Air Balloon Companies in the Greater Orlando area:Blue Water BalloonsSoaring Adventures of America Inc.   Bob's Balloo...

In this slow market, many developers are finding that it is a struggle for them to find buyers for their new homes.  Despite the many incentives that they are offering buyers, there are still few takers.  Many buyers are still not impress with the free appliances, upgrades galore, or the builder pay closing cost deals.  What buyers are looking for is affordable homes.Some builders have heard these buyers and are responding.  Take Mercedes Homes for example here in Central Florida.  They have started construction on three model homes at a new gated community - Park Ridge which is located just minutes fromj Disney and other area attractions.  These homes will consist of three-five bedrooms and prices are expected to start at under $200K.Again the target is not investors or foreign residen...

According to recent reports, the state approved growth plans for north of Davenport.  This would increase potential future development in a 16,000-acre area north of Davenport.What does this means?  There will be tens of thousands of new homes in addition to new commercial buildings and industrial development into the area.The county had the opportunity to appeal the state's decision however they did not challenge the state's decision.  This means that this growth to the area will come when developers are ready.
