Hard to believe that February is already behind us and we are into the 3rd month of 2014 now.  Lots of Florida real estate deals closed last month.  Here are some of the highlights of the many deals that our Realtors sold in February 2014.                    Marsh                                            Sunshine                                           Gowalt 1.  Marsh Road, Deland, FL 32724.  This was a huge 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home in the country on a 1-acre plot.  It did need a little TLC but sweat equity goes a long way in Florida real estate.  This sold for $119,500. 2.  Golden Sunshine Circle, Orlando, FL 32807.  Townhouse in Florida Villas just east of downtown Orlando.  3 bed, 2 bath end unit.  You can see how deep the building goes.  Lots of space for the money.  Sold for...

We all get them. The calls and emails from other agents that are asking for things that they really should be able to find on their own. A perfect example is an agent wanting HOA docs before they even show the property. I get these types of requests quite often. And they can be anoying when we are busy. BUT.......I have no issue at all sending them a link to the public records so they can pull up the docs. We spend a lot of time bloging and and working social media to increase our internet presence and build relationships. My goal is to be the go to guy for all things Real Estate in the Orlando Florida. It would make ZERO sense to not help these agents if I can. I have built my business for almost 20 years by helping other agents. Agents are used to other agents blowing them off. Why n...

So this morning I was reading through some of my older articles and found the one below from October 2007. At that time we were heading into the worst of the real estate market crash. Many agents were struggling so I used this article to dish out some perspective. You can read the original comments here. To give you a real picture of how fast the market changed here are my personal sales figures for this period.  2005  50 Sales   Average price of  $160,000 2006  26 Sales   Average Price of  $229,500 (slowing sales but prices still jumped) 2007  22 Sales   Average Price of  $119,500 (almost a 50% decline in value) 2008  19 Sales   Average Price of  $119,500 (this was the year of the mortgage crisis) 2009  36 Sales   Average Price of  $ 93,500 (transitioned to short sales) 2010  54 Sales ...

Kissimmee Florida Short Sale  Hi folks, Here's another great testimonial from one of my happy Kissimmee Florida Short Sale sellers. Are you looking for an Orlando Florida Short Sale Specialist? Hi Bryant,   Here is my testimonial:   I was under water with my Kissimmee Florida Short Sale condo, due to family illness and reduced work hours, I could not keep the unit.  When I first contacted Bryant Tutas, he put ease in my mind that, with his experience and expertise, he would no doubt be the one to steer me through the process. I could not believe my luck!  Through the long, grueling 11 months, he negotiated with the bank, the  crucial parties involved, the buyer, buyer's agent on all sorts of issues, and eventually helped me sell it and closed the deal.  Bryant is true to his words, del...

     Hi Bryant: I'm a Realtor myself, but I hired Bryant to sell my two personal short sale properties because I knew what a great reputation he has for getting short sales SOLD. Both of mine turned out to be quite complicated and difficult, but Bryant got them closed... after lots of hard work and perseverance on his part. Both times, the process was relatively easy for me. He kept me informed of what was happening and what he needed from me at every step. I couldn't have asked for a better experience... and I've worked with MANY Realtors over the course of my career. I'd gladly work with Bryant again and recommend him to any of my friends or colleagues. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns regarding his service.

Center State Automotive in Kissimmee Saves the Day!   When our car broke down on the way to Disney world our road hazard assistance from Allstate helped us to find a tow truck to get our car towed. That process alone took Allstate about one to two hours and then another hour for the tow truck to get there.   I wrote about what happened here, click here.   We ended up being on the Florida Turnpike for 3 hours, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. just 17 or 18 miles south of the Osceola Parkway exit.   Center State Automotive showed up with not one tow truck but two. That is because we had four people to transport along with the car.     The problem was that my Mercedes had to be put on a flat bed and we needed a king cab or a cab large enough to also fit four of us. Center State Automotive only charg...
