Today in Palm Bay Florida here in Brevard County there are currently over 1000 houses sitting empty. Most have been foreclosed on.  Many of these are providing excellent buying opportunities for smart, savvy customers.  Some are being purchased at pre-2005 prices.  Others are just sitting, empty.  Some are eyesores and are creating a neighborhood nuisance. Brevard County has been give $10.55 million and the City of Palm Bay gets about $5.28 million of those funds. The hope is to help move some of these properties off the market, and into the hands of caring new owners or new tenants. Brevard County Housing and Human Services believes that the need lies in more single family rental homes being made available to those that have lost their homes due to foreclosure. The funds have been appr...

My dog, Bailey the Boxer, loves the fresh air of being outside.  So, we let him out every chance we get.  He is very social and loves to meet other dogs.  We take him in the car for regular rides, as he doesn't like to be left out of the family fun.  We love to exercise and play with him.  Then, he's happy! For those of you dog lovers here in Palm Bay Florida, Palm Bay Regional Park has a dog park where you can take your dog to socialize with other dogs.  It is 40,000 square feet of fenced off section, with one area for small dogs and one for large dogs.  Here you can let your dog off leash.  All dogs that enter the park must have a current Brevard County license, with vaccinations up to date.

I love the smell and fresh air that an upcoming thunderstorm brings. It's almost as if you can feel the entire sky shifting, while taking on a new form.  I prefer to not be on the roads when it's raining or a storm is looming.  Curled up, in the evening with a great movie is the best time for a storm.  I was recently finishing up a day of showing houses in Palm Bay Florida and had to pull over to take pictures of the incredible sky. The sky and the land were completely separated by a black line of threatening clouds.

Here in Palm Bay Florida in Brevard County many buyers are still sitting on the fence...not knowing what to do.  What should I do, they ask?  Should I buy now? Should I rent?  Should I wait?  Is the market going to continue on the decline?  When is the market going to change? All of these are excellent questions...if only we knew exactly how the market was going to respond. My question is, What are you waiting for?  If prices decline, but interest rates begin to go up due to the recession, with fear of inflation, then what were you waiting for?  It may just be a wash.  Lower prices + higher rates = Unnecessary money paid out in rent, because they waited, and could have owned? I did a little research myself to see if homes today truly are affordable here in Melbourne Florida located in B...

Is this it?  Is this the turn in the market that we have been telling buyers about? Are interest rates heading up?  Is it truly time for buyers to get off the fence and take that step to buy NOW before rates go up? This week the Federal Reserve opted not to cut the Fed Funds Rate again.  In the past, a cut in the Fed Funds rate often times was followed by a drop in mortgage interest rates.  However, that has just not always been the case, recently, as there has been so much money lost in all sectors of the banking and real estate industry.  We have seen rates sometimes fluctuating on a daily basis. But, what about the Fed's decision this week?  The Fed has been aggressively cutting interest rates, hoping to avoid recession.  They opted to not cut the Fed funds rate at all. What does thi...
