Daytona Beach News - Port Orange Updates

On the heels of a huge sell off of financial stocks on Monday, the Fed made a surprise announcement to increase the length of time banks can use funds through the "Fed Window". Keeping things simple, banks have longer to "pay back" the Fed on borrowed funds. This should help banks increase the amount of money available for loans with less risk to their shareholders. The Dow Jones Average was up over 400 points on Tuesday as a result.

People have been afraid to make big ticket purchases in times of uncertainty. Consumer confidence will need to be restored in order to begin to get America spending again. There is a Fed Meeting March 18, and there are signs that point to yet another rate decrease. If you are rate watching, next Tuesday and Wednesday are

Short sales in Port Orange are popping up daily. I have noticed a few opportunities that may be attractive to the right buyer.

Villaggio On The Lakes has a few short sale options available. One that sticks out is the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom option. It's one of the largest units in that development and a buyer may be able to "snatch it up" at a great price if the bank agrees.

A few short sale opportunities have recently become avialable in Venetian Bay just outside Port Orange. Three properties come to mind. All three options are asking close to the 200k range. The bank may or may not accept an offer in that range, but it's definitely worth a try if you are a serious buy in that neighborhood.

Lending guidelines at Bank Of America may get even more strict next month. I was just informed that Bank Of America will require 40% down for a condo purchase in Daytona Beach. This may not be 100% accurate and I'm trying to verify this information right now.

This will not help the Daytona Beach condo market! There are very few buyers that have 40% to put down on a condo purchase. I'm hoping that this new policy does not apply to all condo purchases and only applies to buyers with damaged credit. I will update this post when I have more information.

A few months ago I decided to "take up" the sport of Golf. Little did I know how physically and mentally challenging the game would be. After a few rounds of golf with my friends I decided to get lessons. So, I called Mike Kelly over at Spruce Creek Country Club in Port Orange, Florida. He has worked with me over the past few months and really helped me improve my golf swing mechanics and score!

Looking for a Sweetheart Of A Deal? You probably have several to choose from in Todays market. Rates continue be low, and Port Orange homes continue to sell for less than in previous housing market boom years. Many of my clients have contacted me in the last few weeks for a home finance check up. Tax season is a great time to get up to speed on finance options currently available, as well as discuss the numerous changes that have occurred in the last 6 months. Many have found that the programs they wanted to use are no longer available, and that there are few programs available that do not require full documentation. It is safe to say that these meetings have helped my clients walk into their negotiations with the proper expectations for rate, payment,
