St Petersburg Florida was my destination on Sunday and while down there I could not resist taking time to video the windsurfers out by the Skyway Bridge.     The Skyway Bridge separates Tampa Bay from the Gulf of Mexico and it is also the connection between St Petersburg, in Pinellas County, and Bradenton, in Manatee County.       As you can tell from the videos, it was a windy day, with temperatures only going up to 77 degrees......still a LOT warmer than the snowstorms hitting the Northeast! What are you waiting for? Call today to start your relocation!

With just under 10,000 homes for sale in Tampa currently listed in the Tampa MLS, buyers have many choices to review when they go shopping for a home in the higher price ranges. But homes priced below $350K are actually fairly competitive for buyers, while homes above $500K have so much supply that it will take years for the market correction to finish. The real estate graph below shows recent sales and current listings by price range in the Tampa MLS, through September of 2011. The red bars measure the number of homes currently on the market in Tampa, while the green bars shows the number of homes sold in Tampa in September 2011. The blue line is the measure of relative supply of homes based upon the past year’s number of homes sold in each price range. Note the yellow shaded area whic...

  St Petersburg just announced its new rebranding campaign - Surprising St Pete Art scene.  Bay scene.  City scene. What a scene. A haven for sports fans, art connoisseurs and serious foodies. The campaign touts the variety you can find in St Pete from helicopter rides to museums to great restaurants and lounges. Rodd up the streets at 9 pm? Hardly. Bars now stay open until 3 a.m. Just look at Tryst, next door to us, if you want to see activity. Read more and see more photos. The announcement was made in front of the Museum of Fine Arts, which is right across from our office. As Beach Drive has come alive once again, we're right in the middle of it all.

PURCHASE AND REHAB YOUR HOME IN SAINT PETERSBURG FLORIDA WITH THE FHA 203(K) LOAN - Most home buyers are turned off at the sight or even thought of buying a fixer-upper; a foreclosure or an older home today. However, educated and informed home buyers are utilizing the FHA 203(k) loan to buy their new home and fix it up with no additional out-of-pocket expense. The FHA 203(k) loan is a tool that savvy home buyers, successful contractors, Realtors and mortgage originators have been using since 1978. An FHA 203(k) loan is very similar to the traditional FHA loan. The only real difference is that with the FHA 203(k) loan, the home buyer is adding money to their mortgage balance to finance-in any repair/improvement cost. Whereas the traditional FHA loan requires that certain repairs be done ...

Florida's do-it-Yourself Loan Modification Process Listen to someone who has had not one but two loan modifications approved by Bank of America in the last 3 years. I have heard horror stories from people who have tried unsuccessfully to get a loan modification due to loss of household income or lack of income to repay the debt. My advice is be persistent, provide the requested documentation and don't give up. Once you are given a trail modification period make the required payments on time and in return you will be awarded a permanent modification. If you are attempting to get a loan modification because you are solely upside down on your mortgage then forget it. However if you have had a reduction in your income, job change or other type hardship or change of circumstance and the prop...

Scuba Tank Explodes Killing St. Petersburg Diver A man carrying a scuba tank into his home died when the tank suddenly exploded. The explosion damaged the home and blew out several windows and the front door. Two witnesses inside the home were shaken but unharmed. Because scuba tanks require regular visual inspections by qualified professionals, this type of accident is fairly uncommon. An investigation into the cause is pending. Sarasota Real Estate
