Horizons CondominiumHorizons Condominium with it fancy rounded elements look quite modern, even though it was built in 1979.This 19-story building (20 if you consider that penthouses are in two levels) has 69 2- and 3-bedroom condos, all of which are oceanfront. Excellent view of the ocean, and the river from the middle of the building and up.Popular partly because of only 1-week minimum rental requirement, which is relatively rare in Daytona Beach, it is more common in Ormond Beach and Ormond-by-the-Sea.Currently, there is one unit for sale in the Horizons Condominium. A three-bedroom condo unit on the 4th flor for $389,750.2 units in the building are under contract. Both are 3-bedroom units.2 units have new owners since the beginning of the year.

Beachside Сondos in Daytona Beach areaThere are currently 1,136 condos for sale in Daytona Beach area as per our Daytona MLS. 369 of them are on the beachside, between the ocean and the Intracoastal (aka Halifax River). Lowest price is $59,900 for a 344 sf-studio. The condo building is across the street from the ocean, and for that low price you even have the view of the ocean, believe it or not.The top of the list is a $4-Mil oceanfront penthouse in 3 levels, where you own 2 full floors and a rooftop. Magnificent, yet seriously overpriced condo… Needless to say, that next highest priced condo is $1,125,000.We are not anywhere close to Miami both geographically, and price-wise, so out of all 369 beachside condos only 5 are $1 Mil or more.Which in plain English tells you that our condos ...

Daytona Beach Condo-HotelsThere are 2,448 condo-hotel units in 14 condo-hotel properties in Daytona Beach area.I am pulling the data from MLS thinking that the lowest priced units would be in Sea Dip Resort. It is an easy prediction to make, as Sea Dip is going through yet another major concrete restoration, and it usually results in low prices.And yes, first two units are in Sea Dip: $32,900 and $34,500. And while these are the lowest prices among 128 condo-hotels units in oceanfront condo-hotels in Daytona Beach area, they are showing the increase. No more units in the $20s…Anyway, there are 128 condo-hotel units for sale on the beach in Daytona Beach area. A pathetically small inventory, only about 5% of the condo-hotel market, which has not resulted in prices going crazy. But this m...

Aliki Atrium condominium is only a 27-unit condominium in Ormond Beach, but it is not the one you can discount and pass. It is a 7-story building, but the elevator stops on three levels.All two-bedroom units are in two levels, and 3-bedroom units are in 3 levels. This is how 3 condos put one on top of the other with two 2-bedroom units and one 3-bedroom get you a 7-story building.I hope your head is not spinning 🙂Of course, when there are only 27 units, you can’t expect a bunch of units for sale. So, the fact that there is only one unit for sale as of today, shouldn’t shock anyone.This is a penthouse level 3-bedroom/4.5 bathrooms, occupying 5,6 and 7th floor with a total of 75 linear feet of oceanfront balcony. Price $795K. Considering relatively recently similar unit listed at $1.2 Mil...

I am posting about Plaza quite regularly. This one is about the inventory, sales, and some fascination with predictions. Active units There are 13 units for sale in The Plaza Resort & Spa. The lowest priced ocean view unit is $45,900. There is another unit for sale for a bit less than $50K making a total of 2 units under $50K. 6 units between $50K and $60K. Then there are 3 units in the $60s, one for $75K and one for $99,900. If you are trying to make sense of these numbers, figuring that the unit for $99,900 is somehow better than less expensive units, don’t. There is no rhythm or reason for that. Let’s say the lowest priced city view unit is $50K, and the unit for $45,900, which is ocean view, should have more value… First direct oceanfront unit is for sale for $69,900 and a unit for...

The Plaza Resort & Spa I have wanted to attend a meeting at The Plaza Resort & Spa for years now, but it somehow did not happen until very recently. It was an annual meeting, and you can read about the election here. Here I would like to pay attention to things happening in The Plaza Resort & Spa, changes that we soon would see in Plaza. Plaza suffered a serious blow from hurricane Matthew in October 2016. 12 and 14th floor of the tower got a lot of water damage and were out of commission for several months. The front of the resort lost quite a lot, making the service elevator shaft naked. Just very recently the tower was completed. I do not know whether it were hurricanes, or it was a coincidence, but the resort did a serious concrete restoration job replacing Spaulding oceanfront bal...

Early morning sunrise on the beach in beautiful Daytona Beach Shores, Florida.  As the morning sun peeks out from the clouds, and the waves crash against the shore, this is your daily routine... this is what beachfront life is all about.If you don't like the sounds of waves crashing against the shore, and the sounds of birds flying overhead, this isn't the life for you. If you don't like the changing tides, and the smell of the ocean, then you won't be happy living here by the beach....On the other hand, if you think you would enjoy waking up to a beautiful ocean sunrise, and taking a morning stroll along the beach, we can definitely help you find your dream home in the sky in one of the many beautiful condominiums in Daytona Beach Shores and surrounding areas, or a single family reside...

The Plaza Resort & SpaI attended the annual meeting of condo owners Association at the Plaza Resort & Spa recently. I communicate with a lot of owners, and I feel a lot of frustration. But I wanted to see and hear the Board members, the management of the resort.Plaza has suffered a serious damage from hurricane Matthew in October 2016. 12th and 14th floor got a lot of water damage and were out of rentals for many months. The front of the resort was ripped off exposing the service elevator shaft. Just very recently the tower was finally dressed up.I do not know whether it was because of the hurricanes, or it was a coincidence, but the resort did a serious concrete restoration job replacing oceanfront balconies in the Tower.After the election, Lex Hollender, the General Manager, made a pr...

Plaza Elections I was very curious about the Plaza elections, as 100 condo units out of 323 units are in the hands of the lender, that got the property from the developer in a bankruptcy case. The lender now owns 100 condo units besides the commercial space and the operation of the resort.There are two associations, and the Master Association controls the commercial space, the Front Desk, and the operation, and it is run entirely by Lender’s representatives.Then there is the Plaza Resort & Spa Condo Owners Association. So, when after the election the results were 112 votes for Michele Howe, who is Lender’s representative; 108 votes for William Caulfield, who is also Lender’s representative, and 38 votes for Anina Devanguardia, whose company owns unit 1401 since the conversion to condo-h...
