"One small step for man, One giant leap for Mankind."     Things To Do in Central Florida while on vacation. While in Central Florida, most visitors are drawn to the worlds #1 tourist attraction, Walt Disney World Resort. Or they find time visiting Sea World, Universal Studios, our great beaches, or Bush Gardens in Tampa.       But the attraction that many visitors pass up, or just forget, as many of Americans watched their black and white TV sets in the summer of 1969 and heard the proclamation, "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped off Apollo 11 and took man's first steps on our moon. Such pride was never felt by any nation on this earth. We did it, we captured John F Kennedy's vision just 8 years after he addressed congress with ...

FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS WANT FREE ST CLOUD FLORIDA HOMES?  We get calls daily from potential first time home buyers who many have been scouring the internet trying to find Free or low cost First Time Home Buyer Incentives.  Several years ago, there some programs designed to stimulate the home buying market which offered very little buyer contribution towards the purchase of a home for fist time home buyers.  I These programs were Federally Funded and have long since been exhausted. Back in 2009, the market was struggling to recover, the glut of foreclosed homes flooded the market and buyers were scarce. A lot has changed here in St Cloud Florida since then.  The inventory of homes has dropped significantly making the selection much smaller and the competition much stronger.  So what is a...

THREE THINGS EVERY BUYER NEEDS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN BUYING A HOME.  It is no secret that the shift in real estate has created a sellers market.  What that basically means is that there are more buyers than there are homes for sale. As a result, the choices a buyer may have are more limited. There are three things that separate a successful buyer from a frustrated one. DESIRE NEED AND ABILITY BUYERS DNA.  What makes a potential buyer, a successful buyer is their desire, need and ability.  Desire: The romantic notion that owning a home is what you want.  The style, age, type vary. But the overall idea is that you no longer want to rent, you want to own a home of your own. Need: The time frame in which you intend to find a home. Without a defined time-line, the search can be endless. Abilit...

THE HOUSE IS PRICED FINE, IT IS YOUR SALES CHART THAT IS IS UPSIDE DOWN- AT LEAST WHEN BUYING 3 BEDROOM 2 BATH HOMES IN ST CLOUD FLORIDA.

Quick Flip, bite your lip, the comp may come back to bite you.  We have been searching for the perfect St Cloud Home for a lovely couple. A "New listing" just hit the market. Having been unsuccessful previously, the buyer wasted no time in making an appointment to preview the home. The smell of fresh paint, and the hollow "ting" of new ceramic flooring, the appliances gleaming and sparkly new, made the home very appealing.  The price was paletable.  Given what we have seen, and the market attempting to rebound, we thought we had found a real gem, in this freshly renovated home. The Buyers disclosure had had written "Unknow" as the answer to EVERY Question.  In bold letters in the public remarks section of the listing were the words: "SELLER AND LISTING AGENT HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF PROPERT...

Wish List vs Reality: How much is too much to ask for when an offer is signed?  In my market of St. Cloud Florida homes, we are experiencing a Seller's Market.  Whch means buyers are fiercely competing for homes.  When a well kept, well priced one comes on the market, you can be assured there will be many lookers. And there will be offers. Recently, a contract got kicked, because the buyer simply asked for too much.  The offer was $10,000 below asking price. One Concession on the sellers part. The seller accepted the "As-Is" Offer, wishing to settle their loved ones estate. Things were going fairly smoothly, until it came time for the Apprasial to be ordered.  The appraiser had already pulled the comps and was confident that the property was within the correct value range, on his prelim...
