It is hard to call Viera a neighborhood...it is really a group of dozens of small neighborhoods or sections that when all smashed together make up the Master Planned Communities of Viera East and Viera West. The population of the two together is approaching 20,000 residents. Each of the sections can have a very different feel but all the homes within any given section will fit within the HOA (home owner association) guidelines...so you never have to worry about buying the biggest home or most expensive home within the neighborhood...they all fit nicely together! As with any Master Planned Community the HOA will have strict guidelines to what you can or cannot do with your property (if you like to park cars out front on your lawn up on blocks...this will not be the right place for you.....

Heritage Isle in Viera, Florida (Melbourne, Florida) – Homes for Sale in 2013 As of today there are 21 active listings in Viera’s premier gated 55+ community - Heritage Isle community. Of these properties for sale there are only two distressed properties – one short sale, one foreclosure.  There are five distressed properties under contract as well. The reduced distressed property inventory in Heritage Isle is consistent with the picture throughout Brevard County as the supply of short sales continues to fall. Listing prices for these active listings range from $154,900 to $365,000.  By the way, there is only one listing above $300,000 and more than half are under $215,000.     February 2013 sales in Heritage Isle were down a bit from the five sold in January with only two closings.  On...

When many people see an “estate sale” sign posted they think bargain - not just another garage sale!  I think the same thinking occurs when home buyers see an MLS listing that includes the magical words "Estate Sale." But bargains may or may not be on the agenda at these sales. First of all the context of the "estate sale" could be anything from an owner relocating to an assisted living facility, a recent death or even the owner is just simply moving. Depending on the circumstances an estate sale can bring out a lot of emotion on those involved with the selling.   It may be in the form of an emotional attachment (memories) that makes the offer price too high for the market.  It may even be in the form of greed by one of the survivors. (It happens!) On the buyer side it may very well bri...

Sunset Over the Viera Wetlands in Melbourne, Florida. Officially known as the Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands, it is home to hundreds of differnt species and thousands of migratory birds. It's a nature photographer's paradise on a nice day with the right lighting. Unfortunately, most of my day was overcast and jacket weather. I think all of the exotic wildlife was hiding but it was an enjoyable day none the less.    Great Blue Heron.   Bufflehead Duck.   Loch Ness Two Foot Gator. Natural Habitat.    Sign at the Entrance.    Soar Like an Eagle. Flora and Still Water. It's time to have some fun in the the Sunshine State!

I have the question many times, does a Pool make that much difference? It always comes down to supply/demand.   In Brevard County, Florida, the Challenge these days is a lack of supply of existing inventory. In parts of Brevard such as Viera, buyers are demanding quality luxury homes with Pools. Pool Homes are selling at a faster rate and yes they are selling for more. Supply and Demand always dictates the market price. In Viera, Builders are competing for new land to plan for 2014 as most of the land for 2013 is spoken for. With the lack of existing home inventory, many Viera buyers are resorting to Building New...and for those that do not have 7-9 months to wait for a new home in Viera, they are rushing in to bid on homes coming to the market.   See these interesting facts about recen...

Home Sales are on Fire in Viera Florida and in most of Brevard County Florida. Viera has been experiencing an increase in demand for all of this year and last year. New Home Sales and Resales have had very high demand due to the lack of inventory that we have seen over the past 2 years. Home Builders such as Christopher Burton and Lifestyle Homes have seen huge demand for much of the past year. The New Home sales are at a apce we haven't seen since 2007. My activity has seen a steady demand for homes throughout Viera and Suntree, buyers are seeking homes in communities with great schools and lot's of amenities such as shoping and restaurants. If you are seeking a local expert that knows the market for buying or selling, then please contact me for an appointment.   Please view my most re...

Should I decorate for the Holidays? Should I decorate? One of the most asked questions when I meet with a potential home seller during holiday season. I’m not one to tell someone they should not decorate and get festive for the Holiday Season, however the key to staging the home must include being uncluttered. While I don’t do holiday staging, I will give examples of keeping the decorating to a minimum during selling.Sellers must remember, everyone has a different taste for their own decor, so neutral is best. We certainly do not want over decorating to turn off potential buyers! Making sure the decorating doesn’t take away room space, counter space and wall space. I have seen some homes decorated with a minimum amount, but looks very nice.In the case of holiday dec...

We have many fine Pizza restaurants on the Space Coast (because of the large influx of residents from the East Coast) most of them produce really good thin sliced New York style pizza (my favorite). Pizza Gallery & Grill has a different take on pizza. They have been producing California style pizza right here in the Melbourne area for over 20 years...think California Pizza Kitchen...only much better. For starters the restaurant is located in The Avenues Mall in the Master Planned Community of Viera...just west of I-95 and Wickham Rd. The 260 seat restaurants is separated into a bar area as well as a family style Italian eatery...and here is a bonus...all the art work on the walls is available for sale...some from local artists...so check it out while you are waiting for your pie.
