I had a call from someone who was driving around the Phillips Landing neighborhood in Rockledge, Florida over the weekend.    They wanted to know if the prices were low because there were lots of homes for sale in Phillips Landing. The caller's  assessment of the market was based upon "lots of signs" in the neighborhood.  After explaining the home sales process they understood that just because you see the signs doesn't mean a home is for sale.  (Most real estate agents leave their signs out front of a home to generate phone calls.) I did provide current market information on Phillips Landing to the caller by email later that day.  Here is some of the same information about homes sold as well as for sale in Phillips Landing in Rockledge.There are eight homes in Phillips Landing in the p...

Why should I take a course like this? Choosing to do your Florida Real Estate Course Online is really a matter of convenience and quality. Convenience means you can do the courses on your schedule, not somebody else's. Start when you want, work at your own pace, finish when you want...it's all up to you.

  Sometimes you just need to skip the big chain restaurants and sample the local cuisine. Although it is not really "local,"  the Himalaya Asian Bistro offers a great experience in Asian cuisine.   Located at 634 Barnes Blvd in Rockledge, Florida Himalaya Asian Bistro is one of my favorite local restaurants.   Offering a nice atmosphere plus good value, this little gem should be on your list when sampling the Rockeldeg and Viera restaurant scene.   Although Himalaya Asian Bistro offers a wide array of Asian dishes ranging from traditional dishes such as Beef Lo Mein to new style entrees such as Indonesian Sambai Fried Rice,  I seem to almost always have the same thing – Mango Tango.  (Give it a try!)   But, so as to not get in a rut, I always change up my choice of appetizer or roll.  W...

We had a buyer but it looks like they got cold feet (from Canada so maybe it is cool up there!). Located at 1244 Admiralty Boulevard in Rockledge Florida this 2 bedroom 2.5 bath 2 car garage town home is located directly on the ninth fairway of Rockledge Florida’s Turtle Creek Golf Course. With association dues of only $60 (Lawn service) this $64,900 price can only be described one way…very attractive!   Near Viera, excellent schools, several golf courses, 45 minutes to Orlando, 20 minutes to beaches. Priced to sell "as is". This short sale town home does have an issue with the back wall.  An engineering estimate for repairs is around $15,000.  Of course, any buyer would want to have their own contractor take a look and give them an estimate.  Anyway, this unit will not last long so if ...

We have quite a few really nice riverfront restaurants along the Indian River. Many allow for boat parking and great views. One such restaurant is River Rocks on US1 just north of the Pineda Causeway in Rockledge, FL. This place is sort of like three restaurant/bars in one. A sit down casual dining restaurant with a great menu....a large covered patio bar with a dockside menu...and an outdoor riverfront seating section that is perfect for cocktails and live music. They do have a really nice dockside menu for those who want to eat on the patio...they have a good wine list...and they offer breakfast/brunch on Sunday starting at 11am. The sit down restaurant offers a nice array of choices from seafood to steaks....and the Veal Osso Bucco is as good as any on the Space Coast. My suggestion...

If you have four or maybe six months to wait,  which would you choose, new construction or a short sale? I ask this only because while looking over recent activity in Rockledge, Florida’s Phillips Landing subdivision I noticed most active listings fall primarily into two categories – new construction or short sale. Of the six active listings in Phillips Landing on June 14th,  there were two short sales , three new construction properties and a lone foreclosure. I will dismiss the foreclosure in this discussion as foreclosures are not the same as either of these. Several of these homes are very similar.  The prices are not that far apart either – perhaps $10-15,000 once you get a reasonable offer signed off by the seller. The new construction properties are listed with four months as the...

Chelsea Park Subdivision in Rockledge- Homes are selling…Act Now! In this buyer’s market homes don’t sell, right?   Wrong – at least if Chelsea Park in Rockledge, Florida is the subdivision. During May 2011 there were three closings (seven since March 1st) in Chelsea Park: 405 Cobblewood Drive – 2,385 sq.ft. sold for $189900 467 Stonehenge Circle – 3,156 sq.ft. sold for $219,000 428 Stonehenge Circle – 2,416 sq.ft. sold for $198,000 And the homes that are selling?  Six are under contract awaiting closing (two under contract in past two weeks!).  Of course five of these are short sales which may take some time to get closed.  One that is not a short sale, 292 Barrymore Drive, went under contract in about a week because it was priced nicely at $199,900 for a four bedroom three bath three ...

When considering whether a home makes the cut or is "the one" for purchase what property characteristics  and factors do buyers consider most often consider? Some of the factors include age,  square footage under air conditioning, view, bedroom count, bathrooms, garage space location, school quality, curb appeal, direction front door faces, condition, type sale - standard, short, foreclosure, yard/lot size,  seller motivation Every buyer weighs each characteristic differently although ultimately price is the major factor! For example, here is a snapshot of the five properties currently on the market in Rockledge, Florida's Chelsea Park subdivision. Looking at the above characteristics of homes currently on the market in Chelsea Park, which would you choose? Listing A is a short sale, th...

I went on a listing appointment recently in Rockledge, Florida.  The house was almost twenty years old.  In preparation for the appointment I did my research based on my experience for 1988-1992 built houses. And I was still wrong.... This house, in an excellent location, had a one year old roof, a new water heater, an air conditioner system less than two years old...immaculate paint, superb presentation.  It was clean, tastefully decorated.  It had a new deck out back. It had newer appliances. It was so nice... And it was in better shape than some of the newer construction properties I had seen recently in the Viera Florida area! The key in marketing a property like this is to let the prospective buyer know...it is as good or even better than new! It is a challenge at times to price an...
