Holidays are a special time of year. Many people will be traveling to their favorite places. Some of us will be spending the season at the homes of family or friends. Others will head off to a nurturing, peaceful vacation home. For a lot of us, the holidays mean hitting the road and going someplace fun.
Although we often associate vacations with summer, some of the most memorable getaways occur during the December-to-January holiday season. And the truth of the matter is that not everyone wants to make merry in cold weather! Pretty as it can be, a white Christmas can also mean shoveling snow, icy roadways, windy blizzards and hazardous travel. Sometimes the best winter holidays are those spent in warm and balmy climes.

As you’ve probably seen, we have made some upgrades to our website. The new features had actually been in the works for about five months as nothing we do here at Carlos German And Team is taken lightly. Our online presence has really been a hit with customers and we didn’t want to take away the things you already love but we certainly wanted to make sure we stayed on the leading edge. However, in order to do that, some upgrades had to be added to our website to make your experience much easier than it has ever been.
Not only that, but there were many upgrades that needed to be done behind the scenes for performance, management of listings, management of inquiries, leads, follow up emails, property emails, etc. In the end, what we have today is…

At last there are rebounds in the real estate market… Vacation Home sales have been reported at soaring levels that have not been seen since the days of the housing boom, according to The Wall Street Journal.

In the world of New-Home sales, the future is beginning to brighten up. Surpassing expectations, the government reported that sales of new homes increased by nearly 7 percent in September. But you’re thinking, what should I expect if I’m looking to sell my current home? Recent reports show that sales of existing homes rose 10 percent, leading experts to believe the housing demand is again on the rise after it bottomed out in late summer.
While this is good news, new-home sales are still 21.5 percent below where they were last year. The first-time homebuyer tax credit is much to blame for this difference. Prices are rising slowly, but rising nonetheless. Barclays Capital economist, Nicholas Tenev says that it looks like new home sales have finally…

Haven't seen just what you want in a home? Do what many people are doing and consider building your own! The recently-adopted federal tax incentives are spurring new home construction – in fact, 174 new residential and vacation home communities in our area report that building is occurring right now! Prices are in a great range from affordable family houses to luxurious estates.
The same rebound is happening all over the country. Construction companies KB Homes and Lennar Corp. both posted fourth-quarter profits this year for the first time since 2007 – and are still purchasing land for building.
Building your own home can be as simple as picking a floor plan or as detailed as you like, with choices of layout, flooring, counters, cabinets –…

Here’s something we can all be cheer about – Florida home sales are up and have been increasing steadily each month for the past 15 months!
2009 Florida Realtors President Cynthia Shelton states that, “Housing affordability is at its peak and the highest on record: Along with still-low mortgage rates, it means that the buying power of a typical family has never been better.” Interest rates for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 4.88 percent last month, a significant drop from the average rate of 6.09 percent in November 2008, according to Freddie Mac. Becoming a homeowner is now easier than ever!
The news is not only good for buyers, but also sellers are finding it a good opportunity as the market is beginning to balance.
