KISSIMMEE FLORIDA   The area was originally named Allendale, after Confederate Major J.H. Allen who operated the first cargo steamboat along the Kissimmee River - the Mary Belle. It was renamed Kissimmee when incorporated as a city in 1883. The name, Kissimmee, came from 'Cacema', a Native American name meaning 'long water'. Its growth can be credited to Hamilton Disston of Philadelphia, who based his four-million acre (8,000 square kilometer) drainage operation out of the small town. Disston had contracted with the financially wobbly state of Florida to drain its southern lands, for which he would own half of all he successfully drained. This deal made Disston the largest single landowner in the United States.  See New Construction Homes In Kissimmee       As of the census of 2000, the...

Today in the news, our fair city is celebrating along with thousands of its residents and visitors a rise in property values for anyone with homes for sale in Kissimmee Florida…oh wait that’s not what the big party is for, is it? Sorry, I always seem to have a case of real estate brain... Three months ago, the city completed a multimillion dollar renovation of the Kissimmee Lakefront Park. (Saint Cloud’s park renovation is only just barely nice I guess, in comparison.) I took a walk around today so I could share with you our great, newly modernized civic areas.   The grand opening is later today (January 30th, 2015) with a free concert by Frankie Negron, Uncle Kracker and Sugar Ray followed by a firework show! Thousands are expected to be in attendance. (View Event Info & Upcoming Even...

    Choosing The Right Tenant Can Make or Break You.        What happens if you, the property manager chooses the wrong tenant? Isn't it a direct reflection of your service to the landlord? As well as the time and effort you have to deal with issues from the wrong tenant, you double it by having to explain and deal with the home owner. It's a double whammy and you have a good chance of losing your rental, being fired. So, where did you go wrong? We have compiled a list of 7 things successful property managers do to ensure they choose the best tenant possible for a happy tenant/landlord relationship.   1. Adhere to the Federal Fair Housing Act. Start out by not discriminating race, religion, sex, familial status, or disability when advertising and selecting.   2. Collect a throughout ren...

Here in Florida we have two seasons: Warm and Hot! Spring comes early for Floridians, and usually buyers begin looking for properties again as soon as the holidays have passed. Inventories are lower this time of year and the amount of buyers is elevated making it of the utmost importance that your homes for sale in Kissimmee Florida stand out against the competition. Springtime is the season of competing offers for some homes if they’re competitively priced. No matter what time of year, the following remains true: homes sell during any season, the three most important things that will affect your sale are location, condition and price. If one of those three things is off-kilter, you’ll have a harder time selling your home. You cannot change your home’s location, so it’s important to ma...
