Housing slump done?

A top Florida economist has declared the housing slump a done deal. “It will take another 18 months or so before closing volumes reach more normal levels, but the worst is behind us,” says Hank Fishkind.Read the full story: http://click.email.floridarealtors.org/?ju=fe6210767660047e7010&ls=fe291071736c0578731576&m=feff1070756103&l=fecc177274660379&s=fe611c70756d027a7514&jb=ffcf14&t= How about another one?? The worst of the housing slowdown is over, UCF economics professor Sean Snaith said today – the second time this week a high-profile Florida economist made that proclamation. Hank Fishkind earlier predicted a slow rebound over the next 18 months.Read the full story:http://click.email.floridarealtors.org/?ju=fe6210767064067d7c17&ls=fe291071736c0578731576&m=feff1070756103&l=fecc177274660379&s=fe611c70756d027a7514&jb=ffcf14&t= For additional information about Ormond By The Sea Real Estate contact Ocean View Realty Group 1350 Ocean Shore Blvd. Suite A Ormond Beach, FL 32176 http://www.ovrealty.com/ Toll Free USA & Canada 1-800-356-3409 Local phone 386-441-8245 Fax 386-441-2407 For buying or selling contact Marion O’Connor at ovforsale@aol.com For Rental information contact Deanna Thomas at ovrentals@aol.com Vacation rental information is available at http://www.ormondbeachcondorentals.com/

Slow Real Estate sales impact the local rental market

Higher than normal real estate for sale inventories are causing the rental market to be flooded with homes and condos for rent. Many who cannot or will not lower their asking prices to try to sell their property are looking to rent to help pay the increased taxes and insurance on their property. Buyers who paid a higher price for their home or condo in the past couple of years are unable to sell without (in many cases) a substantial loss. The prospect of a rental income from the property to help pay their expenses is very appealling. The new competition for tenants will probably keep Ormond By The Sea rents depressed. There is such a wide variety of choices now for tenants, both vacation renters and full-time residents, that the landlords no longer have an upper hand.

Price your property right to sell

How do you tell a seller that he should have a lower asking price – something less than the amount his neighbor got when his similar home sold a year ago? The correction phase that we are in now requires your asking price to be very competitive. The relatively strong economy and relatively low interest rates are a good thing right now, but a seller unwilling to accept a drop in asking price today could be forced to swallow an even greater loss tomorrow.
