You are not always in control what happens to you, but you are always in control of how you respond. Your attitude is the only thing you have control of 100% of the time. What you think about leads to habits. Your habits develop your character and your character develops your future. It all starts with your attitude and your mind.The sky is the limit if your attitude believes.

Buy New - The pitfalls of buying a Foreclosure.......  Maybe you have seen this ad recently? That's the latest ad campaign from many National Home Builders. While the Home Builders are using this campaign tactic to drum up new home sales, there are some valid points that any prospective home-buyer should consider when performing a home search. Now to take a neutral stance, there are some great Foreclosure Deals out there if you have a good grasp for this process or a very saavy agent, and quick reaction. I believe the dilemma is less of an issue if your area lacks an over supply of homes and not burdened with excess Foreclosures. For instance, here in Viera, Fl, the lack of existing Foreclosures/existing homes has sparked a mini New Construction Housing Boom on the West side of I-95.

The Fairway Lakes development in Viera offers gated, golf course living on one of Brevard County’s most desirable course – Duran Golf Club. Fairway Lakes homes are being built by some of the most desirable custom builders around – like Christopher Burton Custom Homes, Arthur Rutenberg, and Viera Builders.   Although not presently building any new homes at this time, many of the resale properties were constructed by Toll Brothers. Remember to take your own real estate agent with you when considering new construction.  The on site representative works for the builder (seller) not the buyer. Located near The Avenues at Viera shopping mall, the new Viera Hospital, Viera High School, and more, Fairway Lakes offers homeowners a great location, quality homes and very reasonable prices!

The mindset of a champion: POWERFUL Key Ingredients 1. Begin with the end in mind. How do I want others to view my accomplishments? Plan your goals to build toward the final end result 2. Always think Positive and share Positive...Yes I can do this! Yes, I know you can do it, I believe in You 3. Winners Never Quit, Quitters Never Win 4. We Can Do This 5. Now is the Time to make a stand 6. Don't let Emotions control you, You Control Emotions. 7. A champion is someone who get's up after falling and has a strong finish to the fight...Keep this one written down on your refrigerater or somewhere close by 8. Hold yourself Accountable for your actions! 9. The ones who don't have dreams are usually the ones who try to discourage others. Try to turn this around and lead those people to have drea...

While showing homes earlier this week at Heritage Isle, Viera’s premier 55+ gated community, I commented about Heritage Isle’s really nice fitness center within it's 19,000 club complex.  My clients also asked about other nearby fitness centers as they were not totally committed to 55+ living - yet. The first fitness center that comes comes to mind is the Health First Pro-Health Fitness complex in Viera next door to the new Viera Hospital (opening scheduled for April; open house to be held March 26.) The Health First Pro-Health Fitness Center is a two story state of the art 68,000 sq ft facility offering pools, an indoor track, fitness and nutrition classes, personal trainers, indoor racquetball courts, gyms with regulation basketball and volleyball courts, sauna, steam room, free wi-fi...
