A PIECE OF PARADISE-BAY LAKE RANCH UNIQUE EQUESTRIAN ZONED COMMUNITY- ST. CLOUD FLORIDA 34771 OSCEOLA COUNTY REAL ESTATE. What makes Bay Lake Ranch Unique?  There are very few equestrian communities remaining in Osceola County Florida-particularly in the St. Cloud-Kissimmee Area. A community of custom built homes, with no home owners association, which is well kept, peaceful, yet close in proximity to the Lake Nona Medical College, Orlando, Melbourne, and Disney. THE UNIQUESNESS OF BAY LAKE RANCH IS MORE ABOUT WHAT IT IS NOT: It is NOT your typical subdivision.  There are no sidewalks, community fitness center, community pool, or clustered living.  If you are looking for a cookie cutter community- this is not it.  If you are looking for an overbearing and super restrictive Home Owners A...

Build or Buy?   Back in May 2010  Homes in Bay Lake Ranch that were short sales commanded $200,000 or more.  Lots conversely could be had for under $50,000.  So the question arose would it be better to buy and refurbish an existing home in Short Sale or Purchase the Land, and build a brand new holiday home.  In May 2010 it was about even.   In the time it took to complete the brand new home, in Bay Lake Ranch, the market had shifted. And the shift was dramatic.  Several homes transitioned from short sales to foreclosed properties. When that happens market value is directly impacted. UPSIDE DOWN OUT OF THE BOX?  CAN IT REALLY BE WORTH LESS THAN WE PAID? As a result of the market shift over the five months time it took to build, the brand new home is now worth less than it cost to build. ...

JUST SOLD- WHEN YOU HAVE JUST HAD THE LOWEST SALE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD SHOULD THE NEIGHBORS BE IMPRESSED ?  As an active Broker, and Realtor®  in Bay Lake Ranch, St. Cloud Florida, we have always impressed upon agents the importance of using a mail push to promote a recent sale.  However, I believe there is an exception to that rule.  If you have just achieved the lowest sale in the neighborhood should the neighbors be impressed?   I cannot speak for other areas, but here in my market, the answer is a resounding NO.  Home values have taken hits everywhere. No one is disputing that. In Bay Lake Ranch like other parts of Osceola County, the values have dropped 30-50% off the high water mark back in 2007. When sales like the one in the photo here were strong and prices were still high,  But...

COMPARING APPLES TO ORANGES IN OSCEOLA COUNTY FLORIDA-NEW HOUSING VERSUS SHORT SALE HOMES.  The buzzwords of the decade have been foreclosures and short sales.  Certainly there are no shortage of either.  What works for some people does not work for others. Stuck in the middle are the Pre-Short Sale Home Owners (Known as Traditional Sales) frustrated by the market's inability to bounce back to previous unrealistic value and apprasiers adjusting downward the value of property based on recent comparables which of course include short sales and foreclosures.  Seems like an endless cycle doesn't it? Cash buyers have many choices.  After spending several days vewing the entore inventory around our home office we drew an interesting conclusion.  Homes which may be only a few years old, built ...
