Why You Should Retire To Florida

Posted by admin May - 2 - 2014 - Friday ADD COMMENTS

Early Morning In Solivita

Folks here are 5 reasons why retiring to Florida may be for you.

1. The weather, of course! Florida is known as the “Sunshine State” for the beautifully warm weather residents experience all year round. With a name like that, you can’t deny the gorgeous weather you’re sure to enjoy. Located in a tropical climate, Florida residents enjoy ample rain and sunshine throughout the year. As we all know, rain and sunshine make for the perfect recipe for a lush, green landscape, which is exactly what Florida has to offer.

2. The beaches. Florida is home to over 600 miles of beaches! Wouldn’t you love to spend your retirement exploring every beautiful beach in the state? Beaches not only offer a beautiful setting, but also provide a long list of activities. Sailing, walking the beaches and enjoying sunsets and sunrises could quickly become your daily activities.

3. Low cost of living. The overall cost of living in Florida is slightly lower than the national average, with Florida’s cost of living index at 98 and the national average at 100, according to Areavibes.com. In addition, Florida is one of the few states that have no state income tax, not to mention social security benefits are also not taxed.

4. Attractions and activities abound. Retiring in Florida is never boring! With Disney World, SeaWorld Orlando, Wellington Equestrian Center, Florida Aquarium, Orlando Magic, Spring Training games, and a long list of beaches and towns to explore, Florida residents never run out of new things to do!

5. Large number of 55-Plus residents. It’s no secret that Florida is a great place to retire, which is why so many retirees have moved to Florida to spend their golden years. This is great for potential Florida retirees, such as yourself, as it allows for many opportunities to meet and interact with others your age. It also means that there are a large number of 55-Plus communities in Florida to live in.

And of course if you are looking to retire to Florida there is no better place than SoliVita located in Poinciana/Kissimmee.

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.

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.

55+ Active adult community-SoliVita

SoliVita View

I am living in the fifth house I have purchased during my 28 years of home ownership. To some that may seem like a lot of houses, to others it may seem like I’ve just started. The simple fact is we Americans move a lot… 11 or 12 times in a lifetime depending on whom you consult. Chances are you are going to purchase a house during quite a few of those moves and somewhere along the line you may have the opportunity to build a new home. Or you may be looking for the perfect retirement community in Florida.

Should you buy a new home?

Everyone has fantasized at some point about his or her dream retirement home. You may want closets big enough to live in; a bathroom that doubles as a spa; a kitchen in which you could produce programs for the Food Network But, as in most fantasies, there is usually some epic journey required to achieve the goal. And building your dream home in SoliVita  follows that plot line all too closely.

But isn’t it the dream that makes the quest worthwhile? Yes, if you can weather the storms and battles along the way. And the determination to keep moving forward is usually a function of a strong will and a big heart. But it helps to use your head before you set off on your personal version of “The Lord of the Rings.”

It is likely that you have options when you begin the process of buying a home in SoliVita. There are existing homes in SoliVita that are affordable and that may meet your needs. But there are always things about any property or house that don’t exactly meet with your approval.  It is virtually impossible to buy an existing home without making compromises. However the savings on pricing will help offset this.

Building a new home in SoliVita allows you to imagine, design and build the home that accommodates needs and amenities that are important to you… within a budget of course. And that is one thing that must be considered. A new home will be more expensive, on a cost per foot basis, than an existing one. That is due to the cost of land, the price of building materials and labor expense.
The ongoing costs associated with an existing house are more predictable. However, there will likely be more maintenance expense than for a new house and energy costs tend to be higher with older properties because newer homes are more energy efficient.

Commuting costs may be an issue. Developers must go further and further out to find enough land to accommodate a new subdivision. That may mean higher costs for commuting to work and to access other businesses and venues that may be closer to the nearest major population center. You should consider this from both a monetary perspective and to determine if you are comfortable with an additional investment of time.

If your new house is built in a subdivision there may be ongoing fees required. In addition, there may be covenants that are designed to protect property values that may apply serious restrictions on your ability to enhance your home and/or your property down the road.

Beware of construction delays! Building contractors are notorious for setting deadlines they miss and making promises they can’t keep. Make sure you do some thorough research about the builder and his track record before you commit. Weather is always unpredictable and may have an effect but that should be factored in from the start.

A new subdivision can be a hornet’s nest of building activity.  If you move into your home early in the process be prepared for hammering, sawing, trucks, mud and general chaos for quite a while as the subdivision progresses. This is a lifestyle issue and is a temporary inconvenience. But some have found this level of activity disconcerting and disruptive especially when they are settling into their “dream home” and trying to savor the experience.

If you build new be prepared to stay for a while. With new construction all around you it would be difficult to compete with the rest of the properties available for others who want to build a house from the ground up. You would have to make it worth their while and that usually means a compromise in price.

All this being said (and trust me there is more that could be said) there is nothing quite as satisfying as showcasing your new SoliVita home to family and friends that you designed and built and that reflects your unique vision and personality. If you survive the journey, you will likely have turned your fantasy into reality.

So….whether you are looking for a new or a resale home in SoliVita then give us a call. We can assist with both.

Real Estate Market Predictions For 2014

Posted by admin January - 4 - 2014 - Saturday ADD COMMENTS

Experts Predict 2014 Housing Market
2013 Real Estate Review, Buy, Sell

By: Michele Lerner

The U.S. real estate market made a robust comeback in 2013, surpassing expectations of many economists, as the combination of low inventories and historically low interest rates caused home prices to rise and even helped fuel bidding wars in some markets, surpassing the expectations of many economists. While positive trends, such as increasing home values, are expected to continue into 2014, mortgage rates are also expected to rise in the coming year and could put a damper on home buyers’ abilities to afford new homes.

Looking back at some 2013 data can give us a hint of the year ahead:

Predictions – Inventory

1. Inventory Should Gradually Stabilize and Return to Traditional Seasonal Levels

The beginning of 2013 could be characterized as the “year of low inventory” as buyer demand ramped up and homeowners waited for further price increases and evidence of a solid economic recovery before putting their homes on the market. The year began with a significant shortage of inventory (reported by realtor.com®), and then as early as February the level of shortages started to decline slowly. As 2013 comes to a close, inventory is approximately the same as a year ago. However, homes are selling faster than in 2012, with the median age of the inventory down by 11 percent.

2. More Homeowners Are Likely to Return to Positive Equity

Rising prices helped 2.5 million homeowners who were previously underwater regain positive equity status during the second quarter of 2013. However, approximately 7.1 million homes were still in negative equity at that time and an estimated 10 million homeowners, or about 21.1 percent of all homeowners with a mortgage, remained “under-equitied,” with less than 20 percent in home equity. The good news is that prices are expected to continue rising in 2014, which will lift more homeowners into positive territory. According to realtor.com®, median list prices for homes in October rose 7.57 percent above the same month of 2012.

3. Mortgage Rates Are Expected to Rise

Mortgage rates increased approximately 100 basis points in 2013 and are likely to rise in 2014. The new chairman-designate of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, is expected to continue the policies of Chairman Ben Bernanke, including keeping mortgage rates low by buying blocks of mortgage-backed securities. However, the Fed has considered tapering its bond-buying activity as the economy improves, which could lead to a slight increase in interest rates.

Predictions – Foreclosure

4. Foreclosure Activity Is Expected to Slow

Foreclosure sales are likely to play a minimal role in the housing market in 2014. September 2013 was the 36th consecutive month with a year-over-year decrease in foreclosure activity. Foreclosure inventory has dropped to multi-year lows, down nearly 33 percent since the end of 2012. Foreclosure starts were down 39 percent in the third quarter of 2013 to the lowest level since the second quarter of 2006.

5. Further Declines in Home Affordability Are Expected

The National Association of REALTORS®’ Home Affordability Index, which compares home prices with income, dropped to a five-year low in 2013 as price increases outpaced income growth. If the U.S. economy begins to grow at a faster pace and incomes begin to rise, though, the affordability index will slide further from rising mortgage rates.

While no one can predict with certainty what the housing market holds in store for 2014, a constant in real estate is always that local markets vary widely in their performance. National numbers can tell a story about the economy in general, but home prices, inventory and foreclosure activity depend on local market conditions.
