My buyers offer was just accepted in the Plantation Bay subdivision in Ormond Beach Florida. She got a great deal on a beautiful 3 bedroom / 2 bath pool home. The home is immaculate and the owners were great when we toured the home. It is so nice to see the buyer and seller come to terms on a deal that was good for both parties. The listing agent did a great job as well. My business continues to increase each week, and it is looking like the last quarter of 2009 is going to be a very good one. It is hard to say that whether or not we have hit the bottom, but the buyers are writing better offers. The low ball offers are not so low any more. Multiple offers, on multiple homes by a buyer that only wants to buy one home on short sales are less common. It is definitely a good sign.  Visit My...

Next Thursday, October 2nd, marks the first day of the Ormond Beach Farmer's Market, I'm told that Thursday is the traditional day of farmer's markets; I'm just glad to have one in Ormond Beach! For years Daytona Beach has offered a fantastic farmer's marketing on City Island on Saturday mornings. Flagler Beach has offered a great market on Fridays and a smaller solution on Saturdays. However, Ormond has been forced to head elsewhere. No more! Ormond's Farmer's Market was established by Ormond Mainstreet, an organization dedicated to the furtherance of Ormond's downtown district. The new Farmer's Market is sanctioned by the City of Ormond Beach and should be a real asset to the community. The Ormond Beach Farmer's Market will be headquartered at the Rockefeller Gardens. The location is ...

Simple Pleasures. Mushroom "Hunting" in Ormond Beach, FL It is August, and we have a daily dose of torrential rains, which help keep Florida green. But I know that if it is warm and rains, and a calendar shows that it is summer (in Florida you can get easily confuse, as warm and rainy may as well happen in January), there should be mushrooms somewhere. My son brought some mushrooms that he picked on a vacant lot in a subdivision. Olga marinated them, and boy, they were delicious. In my life in Russia picking mushrooms was my biggest passion as I did not hunt and did not fish. I would go to pick mushrooms on my own since I was 8 years old. Was lost once, but figured it out. Always felt comfortable in the woods, always had a good sense of direction and knew where to go. When we lived in N...

First Time Homebuyers Nationwide are scrambling to find a home that they can purchase in time to receive the $8000 Tax Credit. Home sellers are competing to get offers from this very active section of the market. Competitive bidding is taking place on REO/Bank Owned homes that are priced aggressively. A common strategy is to price the home slightly below market value for a quick sale. We are seeing multiple offers on these homes and quite often  they end up selling ABOVE the listing price. Asset managers are seeking the HIGHEST AND BEST OFFERS, and quite often that means a cash buyer with no contingencies and a quick closing date will be selected. This can lead to 1st Timers becoming frustrated, as financing approvals can take 45 days for FHA Buyers. Many buyers are taking a second look...

John Anderson in Ormond Beach...What is in the name for us?  How often do we drive streets named after someone day after day and year after year ... and have no clue who that is? What do we tell our children if they ask us who was that person that they named the street, we live on, after? If you are in Daytona Beach, especially if you are in Ormond Beach,  you would hear this name: John Anderson. Yes, John Anderson Drive is one of the most beautiful streets with gorgeous residences along the Intracoastal. It starts from Granada Avenue (SR-40) right across from the Casements - the last home of the richest man in the world John Rockefeller,and it goes north following the curves of the river. It starts with Ormond Heritage Condominiums, which address is 1 John Anderson Drive. But who was J...
