Jacksonville on Top Ten lists

We saw the housing report. We beat out Detroit as the worst housing market now, but there’s good reason to believe we’ll find the bottom soon. But if you’re going to talk about being the worst, we should talk about what we do best. Here’s where we showed up in the some formidable top ten lists:  view list after the break...

Nar Letter to Donavan and Geithner

I’d urge readers to take a look at the letter sent by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) Board to Secretary of Department of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan, and
Timothy Geithner, Secretary Department of the Treasury
 
The letter was in response to the HUD and Treasury’s request for input and real recommendations for selling REO, and distressed seller/pre-foreclosure properties held by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration. It’s a very compelling read for Realtors® as it ticks through the issues with homeownership in simple language, easy for our clients to digest, should you decide to share it. 
 
It clearly spells out what the Government should do, according to the NAR, with respect to the disposition of pre-foreclosure homesellers.
Real Estate Selling Strategy: Alcohol
 
Where was she when I was huddled in the corner waiting 14  months to sell my Tapestry Park town home. Three Forks, listen up.  A woman in Chicago had the same problem, until she started thinking “out of the bottle.” 
 
She proposed to her real estate agent that they offer $1,000 in food and drinks (easily done in a place like Tapestry Park), and this would work for the St. Johns Town Center’s Georgetown condos as well, where you can see Maggiannos from your dining room window. Eat and drink your fill, step out to the curb, look both ways, walk about 50 yards and you’re home. Genius.

With the Opening of Seasons 52 at the St. John's Town Center, Jacksonville joins Orlando and 19 other large metro areas where Darden Restaurants operates all of it's six brands: Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and LongHorn Steakhouse.  Operating under it's Specialty Restaurant banner are the Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze and Seasons 52.  Seasons 52 will open this fall, and in addition to it's seasonally rotated menu (hence the name), it's one of the few Darden properties that is "specialty-marketed" as a true venue for social and business events.
