The Harder The Fall The Taller The Climb Markets hardest hit by foreclosures will show the biggest five-year increases in home appreciation. Realtor.com says Florida has more cities than any other state that show the strongest signs of a housing recovery. Market researcher CoreLogic said  that U.S. home prices rose 0.6 percent in March from February, the first month-over-month increase since July. This is the largest monthly increase in home values since January 2006, and it makes April the second month in a row in which home values climbed up.    Coral Springs Florida   Investors are driving much of the momentum, first-time and trade-up buyers will eventually follow. Good affordability and declining inventories are the key factors. Suitable mortgages are now at attractive rates. Meanw...

That's great!  Our family has more in our recycling bin than in our garbage bin.  I'm big on recycling. In fact, I need to order another recycling bin. If you need one, simply call Waste Management at 954-974-7500. What can you recyle?

  Prices Rising   In some parts of Coral Springs, the prices of homes for sale are rising. Experts watching the market are seeing the increase. The key factors are the low inventory and increase in buyers. Multiple offers are starting to come into play because there is just not enough houses out in the real estate market for buyers. The cash investors are snapping up the foreclosures before other buyers make the appointment to view them. The folks that short sold their property 3 and 4 years ago are back on the market because they are now eligible to purchase again. First time buyers and trade ups are also in the mix. Even though Broward County has more than it's fair share of “shadow inventory”, it's not being released all at once. Instead, it's just a steady steam of foreclosed homes ...

Officially opened tonight to a welcoming crowd!  Since Gold Coast Grill closed their doors recently, the regulars that met there had no place large enough to meet-up for a quick and casual - "HI! How Have You Been?" A lively and colorful atmosphere with comfortable hi-top and bar counter seating as well as indoor and outdoor dining. The surfer motif screams FUN and COMFORTABLE through out the place.  A looped video plays on multiple screens of the AMAZING AGILITY of surfers.  Leaves you feeling like you want to try it too!  (Thank goodness I am smart enough to know, this is one feat, beyond my abilities ;-) An abundance of very friendly staff!  Normal names to identify the restrooms.  I was expecting, WAHOO or MAHI and then worried how I would figure out which one was me? Warm and comfo...

Coral Springs Home Sales Market Report for March 2012 - what's selling in your neighborhood? Coral Springs single family home sales Increased this month by over 66% to 89 homes sold - WOW - we love seeing a bustling homes sales market when you're trying to sell your home. Of these Coral Springs homes listed for sale below, Sellers who completed a short sale were at almost 25% which is below last months Short Sales of 32%. We did see a large drop of REO/Bank owned sales down to less than 12% which is a large decrease from last month's 22%. The pattern of up and down is hard to predict the Bank's strategy. Maybe they will consider Short Sales as a better alternative. Time will tell as we see how we go through summer into the fall. This month has concluded in an overall drop in Distressed...
