5 Ways to Boost Curb Appeal on a BudgetIt pays to make the first impression a lasting one. Here are 5 tips which will not break the bank: Update the front door. Replacing an outdated door can be just what your home needs. This simple change can go a long way in changing the appearance of your home. If your door doesn’t need to be replaced, adding a pop of color can make for a bright change. Spruce up the landscaping. Landscaping is one of the first things people notice walking up to a house. Give your home a quick face lift by cleaning up your yard, mowing the lawn, trimming bushes, and keeping your steps clean. Freshen up the paint. New paint has the power to totally transform the look of your house in less time and for less cash than any other remodeling project. A new coat of paint w...

Up 13%, up 16% and down 39%. If you read my blog regularly, you already know what these are, because we have been in this trend for quite some time. The first number represents the increase in home sales last month compared to a year ago. Sales were up 13% with 3,999 closed transactions compare with 3,539 in August of 2020.  The second number represents the increase in the median sales price for Orlando real estate which was $320,000 last month. The third number represents the decline in inventory available for sale which stands at 3,638, a 39% decrease from a year ago, but a 3% increase compared with July.Check out this brief video breaking down the #OrlandoRealEstate market results for August 2021.

Just how challenging has the Orlando real estate market been for buyers this year? I took a look at the percentage of closed sales, in Orange and Seminole Counties for the last six months that closed above asking price. I looked at the numbers for this year compared with 2019. I went back two years for obvious reasons, given the special circumstances and challenges of 2020. Below is a table that illustrates just how much more challenging our market has been for buyers this year.  Month 2019 2021 March 8.5% 19.8% April 9.8% 27.3% May 10.2% 30.8% June 10.7% 38.2% July 9.8% 38.0% August 9.7% 36.5% You can see that in a 'normal' market nearly 10% our sales in Orlando close above the asking price. In our super heated market of 2021 that percentage has more than tripled. We have seen inventor...

No major changes last month. Sales and prices continue to climb double digits, while inventory continues to run low. Total sales in July rose 14% compared to a year ago with 4,183 homes of all types closing last month. The median price of the homes sold in July rose 18% compared to July 2020 with a median sales price of $320,000. While inventory was still 43% lower than a year ago, we did see a rise of 14% compared to June. As of the end of July there were 3,524 homes available for sale representing about a 26 day supply of homes on the market.

The #OrlandoRealEstate market continues to burn red hot as the summer selling season got under way last month. Sales and prices soared double digits, while the inventory of homes available for sale remains extremely low. June saw a 42% increase in the number of homes sold, compared to last year. The 4,414 closed sales last month is the highest number so far this year. The median price last month jumped 19% compared to a year ago, skyrocketing from $265,000 a year ago to $315,000. The inventory of homes available for sale did increase about 10% compared to May, but was still 53% lower than a year ago. There were only 3,098 homes active on the market for sale, which represents only about a three week supply of inventory. Check out this video breakdown of the market.

So you get a title report in and find an IRS Notice of Federal Tax Lien (NFTL) in public records that encumbers the seller’s assets. In a state of panic you realize that this $1.3 million dollar closing next month is in serious jeopardy. You need help to fix this IRS problem like yesterday.Unfortunately, settlement agents and closing attorneys will see more of this in the near future not less. It’s critical to be proactive now and form relationships with specialized tax resolution experts. A target has been placed on the assets of high-income taxpayers by the IRS and they intend to collect by any means necessary. Why now? Part of it relates to COVID-19 and how it slowed IRS enforcement activity because offices closed. A larger factor, however, is a report issued May 29, 2020, by the Tre...

Take the sales increase with a grain of salt. Remember last year, May sales were way off due to COVID-19. That being said, sales did climb 82% compared with a year ago, and the median price soared 15% compared with May 2020. Over that same time, the inventory of homes of all types available for sale has plummeted 61%. Sales last month outpaced the inventory, meaning we have less than a one month supply of homes available for sale in Orlando. That may be starting to turn around though, because the 2,822 homes for sale represented a 6% increase in supply compare with the month before. Also, the median price has remained steady for the last few months at $300,000. #OrlandoRealEstate #Remax #Realtor

Homes are now routinely selling above the asking price, and many times sellers are requesting that appraisal contingencies be waved. Five of my last nine sales have been at list to as much as $25,000 over the asking price. When you watch this video breaking down the #OrlandoRealEstate market for March you will see why. Sales are soaring, and inventory is in a freefall pushing prices up double digits compared to a year ago.
