BUYERS AND SELLERS BEWARE:  FORECLOSURE SCAMS ABOUND - KNOW YOUR CHOICES!   The Better Business Bureau recently published the article:       "Foreclosure 'Rescue' Scams on the Rise"  which highlights some of the typical tactics used by scammers preying upon homeowners in need of help: Are you facing the threat of losing your home? Be wary of individuals and companies offering to "help" you out of your difficult financial situation. Consumer advocates report an increase in complaints about foreclosure "rescue" scams. These scams specifically target homeowners who are in financial distress. Scam operators advertise over the Internet and in local publications, plaster posters on telephone poles and at bus stops, stick flyers in people's front doors or contact people whose homes are listed...

I had one of my 3AM wake up calls this morning - woke up, could NOT get back to sleep, so...I read.  I had just ordered a couple of books from Amazon, and I've been wanting to read one by Seth Godin for awhile, so I did...the whole thing.  Easy read, must say--and I highly recommend it: Purple Cow Transform your Business by Being Remarkable Anyone who is already familiar with some of the recommended practices of By Referral Only will easily recognize and identify with much of what Seth says in this excellent book, which boils down to:  to succeed in today's market, be different.  Not do different ads, market differently, present differently, but BE different--offer up something of value which the consumer cannot get anywhere else in quite that same way--to "...be the purple cow in a fie...

Palm Harbor citizens can celebrate the fact that the city is bringing reclaimed water to more homes! The city is laying pipes Belcher and US 19 (east-west boundaries) and Alderman and CR 39 (east-west boundaries) to expand the area already benefiting from being able to water their lawns and shrubs with reclaimed water.The additional eight miles of pipes is costing the city $1.5 million, but it is a project that we desperately need as we see our local water shortages increasing and drought conditions not improving. This is something that needs to be expanded throughout the county!

A short film I made, showing some highlights of Old Downtown Palm Harbor.  This is a place of "First Friday"s and plenty of artsy influences--local flavor abounds, as does the Historic charm of an old-time Main Street.  Within walking distance are several fine restaurants, as well as a unique and eclectic book store and coffee shop.  Next time you're around, be sure to stop in!  And if you should choose to stay awhile, be sure and check with Real World Properties for the best local info!

Baywood Village, Palm Harbor, Florida's Featured Waterfront Community - home to boaters for over thirty years.  With current efforts underway to dredge the direct-Gulf access canals, property values will be on the rise in the coming year, as premium Gulf-access homes such as these become more in-demand, yet much harder to find.So, how did this lovely community fare in this past year's challenging market?  To date, there are currently 34 homes on the market, over half of them with Gulf access.  Eleven homes have sold this year, with one under contract, ranging in price from $119,000 for non-waterfront, to $440,000 for limited access.There are 20 homes currently listed with direct Gulf Access, beginning at a very reasonable $419,000 - for Pinellas County waterfront, that is truly a bargai...

Here are more photos taken at Wall Springs Park last weekend. This first one is looking out into the estuary that leads to St Joseph's Sound. This area was full of small birds fishing along the shore in the shallow waters. This shot of the springs shows how isolated the actual former swimming area is. There is such lush vegetation surrounding the place that it is a photographer's paradise! I love this shot of the Juniper berries and the water plants along the shoreline! Blue skies and sunshine! Who could ask for more? Like so many of the parks in Pinellas County, Wall Springs Park in Palm Harbor has boardwalks everywhere! It is a wonderful place to take the family for a day outside! Bring along a picnic lunch and your camera! For more information about Pinellas County you can contact Ba...

A couple of days ago I wrote about Wall Springs Park on DeSoto Blvd in beautiful Palm Harbor and I promised to provide you with some photos soon. Well, here they are!!!This park has a wonderful spring that used to be open to the public for bathing until the 1960's. Here you can see what remains of the steps for the public to enter the bathing area. The actual spring is enclosed by a circular area and a small waterfalls allows the water to flow out into the lake.You can see how clear this cool spring water is! It looks inviting! But this former spa and bathing area is now off limits.  You can walk the numerous boardwalks and enjoy picnics and the playground in this 195 acre park that is located on St Joseph's Sound.Pinellas County is full of wonderful parks offering places for outdoors a...

Indian Bluff Island is located west of Palm Harbor and north of Ozona. It is connected to the mainland by a causeway. There was a time in the not too distant past when the island was full of raccoons and mangroves. Now that has all changed and every inch of the island is developed! Everyone wants to have Gulf front property!The homes are all large, modern and one is more beautiful than the other! You find the driveways filled with everything from Sherrif's Department vehicles to expensive luxury cars - everyone has one thing in mind: Being as close to the Gulf of Mexico as possible!When you drive past these homes you are likely to find a group of kids out front shooting hoops - many of the homes have these basketball stands out front -Large multi-car garages for the family with three ca...

Palm Harbor is growing constantly! The sleepy little town with it's small homes is developing and we are finding more and more luxury homes in this part of Pinellas County! Most of these homes are off on side streets where they have some privacy, so you need to know where to look- but they are definitely there and more of these communities are developing all the time. If you are looking for a quiet home in an up and coming area along the Gulf Coast that is close to the metropolitan areas of Tampa/St Petersburg/Clearwater than Palm Harbor is the place for you!
