SoliVita Home Values Continue To Increase For 2014

Posted by admin April - 16 - 2014 - Wednesday ADD COMMENTS

Hi guys. Here’s a market report for Solivita comparing the 1st quarter of 2014 with the 1st quarter of 2013. This will show you the trend for home prices in Solivita.

This data was pulled from the Mid-Florida Regional Multiple Listing Service and is deemed to be reliable. All Data is on Solivita

So what does this all mean? Well, the first thing, that stuck out like a sore thumb, is that 19% of the resales in Solivita his year were either REOs (bank owned) or short sale (SSs) properties. Compared with  23% for last year. So..distressed property sales in  SoliVita are declining. That’s a very good thing for the SoliVita community.

Now according to the chart  property values in Solivita have increased 9% in the last 12 months. The average sales price in SoliVita right now if $183,000 for a 1,731 sq foot (heated area) home. 9% appreciation is very good and is higher than the Florida average of 5%.

Inventory has been about the same all year. There are currently 126 properties for sale in SoliVita. That’s a little more than 6 months of inventory. It’s a Buyer’s market in SoliVita right now.

Here’s the lowest priced Solivita home for sale today.  A 1253 sq ft Zinfandel Model built in 2005. This SoliVita resale is located in the Venezia neighborhood and is priced at  $109,000. That’s only $87 per sq foot and is a good deal based on recent sales in SoliVita.

Here’s the highest priced home for sale in Solivita today. This 3057 sq foot home has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and an inground swimming pool. It was built in 2012 and is currently priced at $487,900.

My opinion, for the future, is that property values in Solivita should continue to experience appreciation in the 5% to 8% per year range. This is based on the fact that the baby boomers are a huge part of the 55+ Adult Community market right now and are very much attracted to these types of communities.

So there you have it, Broker Bryant’s SoliVita Market Report.  Any questions?

At Age 65 U.S. Homeownership Peaks At 81.2%

Posted by admin March - 6 - 2014 - Thursday ADD COMMENTS

Pool Day at SoliVita

Hi folks, I read an article that stated that………At Age 65 U.S. Homeownership Peaks At 81.2%

The analysis is based on 1998-2010 data culled from the University of Michigan’s Health and Retirement Study, sponsored by the National Institute on Aging.

I find it interesting that the rate declines to 77.7 percent by age 75, falling steadily thereafter to hit just 54 percent for 95-year-olds

READ THE ARTICLE

Then in another article I read……More than 2.3 million adult children are living with their parents in California, a 63 percent increase since the Great Recession began seven years ago and a phenomenon straining budgets and pushing some families to the brink of poverty, according to a study released Thursday.

READ THE ARTICLE

Now these two articles got me thinking…… I wonder how many adult children are living in SoliVita? One of the reasons my wife and I moved to SoliVita was to keep the kids out. Our kids that is :) Of course if they were homeless we would do the right thing and……..rent them an apartment!!!

I’m just sayin’

What say you?

New Home Purchases Up Sharply In January 2014

Posted by admin February - 18 - 2014 - Tuesday ADD COMMENTS

New home purchases were up sharply in January. According to the The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) sales of new single-family homes were running at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 543,000 units in January 2014. (data from MBA’s Builder Applications Survey).

The Mortgage Bankers Association estimated 38,000 new home sales in January 2014. That’s a 36 percent increase from the level of 28,000 units in December 2013 .The estimated 543,000 unit annual sales pace in January was a 35 percent increase from December’s pace.

This conflicts with data showing a decrease in existing home activity. However it is in line with what builders are reporting.

Mortgage applications for new home purchases are up by 27 percent relative to the previous month.

SoliVita New Construction is also booming right now. If you are looking for a Florida 55+ Active Adult Community then come check out SoliVita. We’d love to show you around Florida’s World Class Active Adult Community..

The 55+ Active Adult Community Real Estate Market Is Booming!

Posted by admin February - 6 - 2014 - Thursday ADD COMMENTS

Hi Folks, Here’s a good article from the Florida Association of Realtors. Confidence in 55+ housing market at 7-year high Click the link for the full article. Here’s a snippet.

WASHINGTON – Feb. 4, 2014 – Builder confidence in the 55+ housing market for the fourth quarter of 2013 is up sharply, according to the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) latest 55+ Housing Market Index (HMI) y.

All segments of the market – single-family homes, condominiums and multifamily rentals – had strong increases compared year-to-year. The single-family index increased 20 points to a level of 48, which is the highest fourth-quarter reading since the inception of the index in 2008, and the ninth consecutive quarter of year-over-year improvements.

“We’re seeing continued improvement in the 55+ housing market because consumers have gained confidence in the economy and are able to sell their current homes and move,” says Robert Karen, chairman of NAHB’s 50+ Housing Council and managing member of the Symphony Development Group. She expects builder optimism to continue through 2014.

There are separate 55+ HMIs. Each focuses on different segments of the 55+ housing market: single-family homes and multifamily condominiums. Each HMI measures builder sentiment based on a survey that asks if current sales, prospective buyer traffic and anticipated six-month sales for that market are good, fair or poor (high, average or low for traffic). An index number below 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as poor than good.

All of the components of the 55+ single-family HMI showed significant growth from a year ago: present sales climbed 26 points to 53, expected sales for the next six months rose 24 points to 62 and traffic of prospective buyers increased 9 points to 33.

The 55+ multifamily condo HMI posted a gain of 16 points to 35, which is the highest fourth-quarter reading since the inception of the index. All 55+ multifamily condo HMI components increased compared to a year ago. Present sales increased 20 points to 37, expected sales for the next six months increased 15 points to 40 and traffic of prospective buyers increased 9 points to 30.

The 55+ multifamily rental indices also showed strong gains in the third quarter. Present production increased 12 points to 43, expected future production rose 12 points to 46, current demand for existing units increased 16 points to 54 and future demand increased 16 points to 55.

“The 20 point year-over-year increase in 55+ HMI for single-family homes matches earlier gains in the NAHB/Wells Fargo HMI for the overall single-family market and surpasses the more recent gains in the other housing segments,” says NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe.

Retirement Homes in Orlando Florida

Posted by admin January - 13 - 2014 - Monday ADD COMMENTS

Many retirees are drawn to Central Florida, specifically the Orlando and Kissimmee areas. These folks relocate to Florida for its temperate climate and easy living. Our nation’s baby boomers are coming into their retirement years, and they are a part of this group. Modern trends are shifting to accommodate the lifestyles and needs of this largest segment of our population and the SoliVita located in Kissimmee Fl is a perfect example.

Florida’s Orlando area has Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World and is within 60 minutes of pristine beaches and beautiful natural landscapes. Life here can only be described as “Treasured Living.” The museums, restaurants, theatres, night clubs, recreational activities, and close-knit communities will add color, and vibrancy to your life!

When it comes to retirement, everyone has their own idea of what they want their retired living to look like. Some will want to live in larger, more metropolitan areas filled with lots of constant activity, while others want to get away and slow things down a bit. The type of housing desired, will also vary among individuals from condominium living, to manufactured home parks to large waterfront homes. Another consideration for folks coming into their well-earned retirement years is the opportunity to engage in the activities that they enjoy most such as golfing, fishing, boating, shopping, hobbies, and entertainment. The Orlando area can offer a wide-range of options to ensure that your retirement years are truly “Golden,” as you rightfully deserve.

Consulting with an Orlando Realtor is an excellent way to begin the search for your retirement real estate. As your Orlando Realtor I am quite knowledgeable about all of the housing and amenities available throughout the area, and thus, can be a great help as you decide where you would like to live, and what your retirement will mean to you.

If you enjoy an active lifestyle, you might consider relocating to SoliVita. Florida’s Premiere Active Adult Retirement Community for folks over 55 located in Kissimmee Fl.

SoliVita. The place for active adults to enjoy all that Florida has to offer. Amenities include 2 par 72 golf courses at Stonegate Golf Club. The Riviera Spa and Fitness Center with full gym, indoor track, indoor aquatic center, 2 out door spas, heated pool, dance studio and much more.

Also enjoy the Village Center with its restaurants, 17,000 sq ft Starlight Ballroom, pool hall, ceramic and art studios and waterways for canoeing, boating and fishing. And as if that’s not enough there are 11 heated pools through out the community.

And the new Palms Amenity Complex with it’s state of the art fitness studio and 4,000 sg ft pool. Professional staff on site. Oops! I forgot to mention the tennis courts, pickle ball courts, horse shoe pits, dog park, softball fields and nature preserves. You really just need to come have a look. Houses from the low 100s to mid $500s.

If a 55+ community isn’t for you, and you would rather be among families or professional singles, there are plenty of alternative solutions for your perfect retirement destination. Let me know how we can help you find your perfect Florida Retirement Home.
