Good news when you can get it – that's our motto. Condo sales are creeping in the right direction, up 13 percent compared to same period last year, based on stats from Florida Realtors®.
Home sales are up 12 percent in 3Q -- that's 46,759 homes sold statewide, about 5,000 more than same period last year (41,728).
Median prices are stable – that's good – and they continue to stabilize. Not much of a change from the $136,000 price in 3Q 2010, to $135,900. (The "median" is a typical market price where half the homes sold for more, half for less, not to be confused with the "average" which is the total dollar amount for all houses sold, divided by the number of houses sold).

However, foreclosures have slowed, because the number of loans that are delinquent more than 90 days has declined. hence, more borrowers are paying late for a shorter period of time, and getting back on track with their payments within a three month period... Continued after the break.

Construction has begun on phase 1 of William Sheffield Park on New Berlin Road adjacent to New Berlin Elementary. The park master plan was released in 2006 but ground has just been broke on this ambitious project that will eventually have tennis, soccer, baseball, football as well as an indoor swimming pool. There are also two ponds that will have fishing and canoing. This will give the Northside a world class park.
9 new townhomes are still available from Ryland in the Villages of Northwoods townhomes located across the street from the new park. There are also several resale homes available in this community as well. Prices range from $106,000 to $151,000 for the model home. Ryland expects all construction to be complete in this 160 unit community by early next year. The location is great with the Elementary School and this new park within walking distance.
Elvis Presley put on several shows on August 10 and 11, 1956 at the Florida Theatre, but not without ruffling some feathers. Juvenile Court Judge Marion Gooding warned Elvis after his first show that he must “tone down” his act. Elvis told reporters “I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong”. He modified his show nonetheless, wiggling his little finger suggestively with a gesture that replaced some of his less restrained body movements, but still driving the largely female teenage audience wild. It is said that Judge Marion Gooding sat next to the stage throughout the remainder of Elvis’ performances to ensure that the King’s body movements would not become too “suggestive.”
Heed the words of one of our most notable U.S. Presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt: "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself." There's the low prices, low interest rates, and you're a qualified 25-40 year old professional making $60K – $90K. You and your significant other are renting a townhome for $1200 a month, and you don't plan on moving soon.
The stars are aligned, and there's only one thing preventing you from buying a house: Fear. "It's a big investment." Well so is the $1200 month rent. The difference is that the return on your $1200 per month is $0.00.
