Oakland Ca Real Estate posted this 1,554 Views

The other day I got an email from a rep at Meritage Homes, a real estate developer in the Central Valley. The email was to spread the word that they have slashed their prices on brand new homes. The oversupply of inventory is forcing them to cut  prices by large amounts. There simply isn't enough of a demand for the homes they have been building there. Even during the slowdown, developers who were already underway on their projects kept right on building. The combination of lower demand...

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 3,393 Views

While sales continue to slow in both Lee and Collier counties as Season begins, now could not be a better time to buy in Southwest Florida.

Unfortunately, like everywhere else in the country, if you listen to the national media, you'd think the sky is falling. I can't tell you how many inquiries we get from clients thinking that home prices are still at their 2005/2006 levels. The fact is nothing ...

Why would I begin my commentary like that? Mainly due to the horror stories we've all heard and continue to hear about the Real Estate Market. Let me explain: In recent years, many thought the real estate market  was a gold mine waiting solely for them to come along and buy up all the properties, make a f...

Indy Realtor posted this 1,425 Views

A new stretch of 146th street recently opened at exit 10 of I-69 in Hamilton County to officially connect I-69 to Cumberland Road.  This is one step in an effort to eventually connect I-69 to I-65 from Hamilton County through Boone County.  The plans to make the full connection a very vague and far from a reality, however, this stretch is one more piece of the puzzle.  The 4 mile, $53 million stretch will add one more reason for residential and commercial developers to ent...
