Florida Homes for Sale - Viera, Suntree and Rockledge Florida Properties. Gary Waters, Realtor, Century 21 Baytree Realty" Having recently worked with several buyers in teh Viera and Suntree areas of Brevard County, I noticed how  their views on homeowner associations and deed restrictions were nowhere alike.  Some want rules to make sure things stay pretty much the way the neighborhood looks today.  Some want the freedom to do as they please. Not surprising as we all have an opinion of these entities. In the Viera and Suntree areas of Brevard County you will find no escape from HOA rules. Both of these areas are planned unit developments  consisting of many newer (and some older) developments with rules. A few of these have rules that sometimes throw up a roadblock for potential buyer...

I have written about the Viera planned unit development in Brevard County, Florida quite a bit over the past year or so. After all, I work and live in the area.  My office, Century 21 Baytree Realty is at the exit off I-95 and we do have a huge billboard at the exit so...we sell a lot of homes in Viera and Suntree! In the office this Saturday morning I got a chance to read the newest issue of the "Viera Voice." This is a nice little local periodical that is all about Viera - nothing else. A great source for information on Viera and its resources. Sure you can read the local countywide paper, Florida Today but this is neighborhhod specific! If you are "out of the area," you can still acess the Viera Voice at www.vieravoice.com. Just another resource if you are considering a move to Viera...

I have sold "short sales"  just as many real estate agents in today's market. This is a difficult and challenging process.  And, it does take patience - from the buyer and the seller! Buyers of short sale properties should  must have very flexible time lines.  Most agents tell me to give them 60 days. This seems like a long time if you are trying to purchase a home and get moved! I am not sure the banks understand they are losing sales because of the inefficient process.  Actually, I am sure they know it.  But, more importantly, I believe they do not care.  Seller's of these short sale properties want quick answers.  Sellers want the contracts, when offered, accepted. Buyers want the same. A lot of buyers would like to purchase that short sale but they have scheules.... What do the lend...

In the land of equally priced and similar homes the one that looks the best will be the one that is first under contract Staging is twofold.  It preps the house physically, then it preps the house visually. When the market is down its is even more imperative that you see the value of having a house move in ready for the prospective buyer. Your house needs to STAND OUT in a see of ugly houses or ordinary houses or houses that appear to need work. This is what a buyer looks at - its an emotional decision.  This is why you NEED TO STAGE.  *You need to help the buyer to imagine themselves living in your home. Call today! The sooner you stage, the sooner you sell!! Melbourne Home Staging, LLC  (321) 795.8761 Nora Marek, The most experienced Home Stager in Brevard Licensed, Certified, Insured...

I was conducting a little research yesterday, not specifically looking at the 55+ communities in Viera but afterwards I thought about the number of houses I saw for sale in Viera. This morning I decided to research this a little further. My initial feeling was confirmed...there are lots of deals in the 55+ communities of Viera. One that struck me was the new Heritage Isle community. There were 55 properties for sale this morning (strictly coincidental it is a 55+  community.). The prices ranged from a low of $174,000 for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath single car garage unit to $434,000 for a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, three car garage unit with a private pool. What a difference! It does appear that most of the properties in Heritage Isle are listed in the low-mid $200,000 range. Most of the properties wer...

Well here in central Brevard County (in the immediate area near Viera, Rockledge and Suntree) you will find it!There are three really nice 55+ communities all in the Viera area.With listing prices running from about $130,000 to $475,000, the choices are abundant.

Wow, what a summer day! Spent the last three hours attempting to hold an open house but the showers sort of washed the day out. When you schedule an open house you have no way of knowing if the weather will cooperate. I am not complaining - the weather in Florida is almost always cooperative (read that as "beautiful"). Anyway, while sitting out the rain I decided to take a look at the sales figures for the Viera area only of Brevard County for the past 30 days.During the period of  June 15 to July 15, 2007 there were 44 homes sold according to my research of the Brevard County MLS data. If you are not familiar with Brevard County, Viera is a planned unit development in the central county, located about 15 minutes from Cocoa Beach, 40 miles from Orlando, 15 miles north of Melbourne - a p...
