Commercial Real Estate investors in Panama City and Panama City Beach have some hurdles to jump in 2010. Commercial loans are coming due and values have decreased over the last 12 months. Investors are being forced to come up with additional equity to renew loans. However, I believe Panama City / Bay County will be the first real estate market to turn around. The new international airport, widening of Highway 79, widening of Highway 77, realignment of Highway  331 near Freeport, are a few projects that are attracting national companies to Panama City.  We all need to thank our State Representative, Jimmy Patronis, for going such a good job. Thank you Jimmy!

Home Buyers Tax Credits Expansion & Extension - What Does It Mean?       Recent legislation not only extended the popular home-buyer tax credit - it expanded it."The Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009," signed by President Barack Obama, will allow certain, select existing homeowners to take advantage of the credit.  Under previous rules, the homebuyers' tax credit had been only for prospective homebuyers who had not owned a principal residence during a three-year period prior to purchase. Eligibility Defined:     A first-time home buyer is defined as an individual who has not owned a principal residence during the three year period prior to the purchase.  For married taxpayers, the law tests the homeownership history of both the home buyer and his/her spouse.

This is to all the active military and retired veterans.  Thank you for defending, loving and protecting this country and the freedoms that we take for granted. Please don't think that one day of thanks and recognition is all you deserve. 352 days of praise every year is not enough thanks for all you do. God bless you all!   To my Daddy.... Thank you for serving and defending our country. I love you and miss you so much. I hope I live to make you as proud of me as I am of you.  Rest in peace Daddy,  I love you.        Lynn is a licensed Realtor in Florida and Georgia.

The best part about selling in a buyers market is that once you close you can take part in the low interest rates and low prices of homes today and make up what seems to be a loss. Here is what happened with my recent customers. We just closed yesterday and they got a home that was almost twice the size of their previous home for about the same monthly payment. They paid approximately 5k to buy a new home with a lot more square footage that would accomodate their growing family. Oh and did I mention that they bought their previous home in early 2006? Not everyone is upside down and just like these customers, you too can take advantage of the market. If you have been waiting to buy your dream or if you have outgrown your current home, now is the time to upgrade. You might find that the h...
