It’s no secret that Florida has been, and continues to be, the top retirement destination in the country. Wonderful weather and astounding affordability are just some of the factors that drive droves of early-retirees and soon-to-be seniors to our scenic coasts in search of serenity. But with more than 65,000 square miles of temperate land and nearly 1,200 miles of coastal opportunities, a relocation and retirement to Florida can make dropping your pin on the map a bit more difficult. And, as Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”
When planning for retirement, many of us often seek out professional financial advisors and services to make us aware of options and set a road map for the future. Often

The new year is here and you know what that means; tax time! Sorry to bring this bad news to bear, but as Mark Twain famously opined regarding the difference between a taxidermist and a tax collector: “the taxidermist takes only your skin.” The good news is that this article is actually meant to help you save a few bucks by detailing the Florida homestead exemption.

The Daytona Beach area saw an incredible influx of home and condo buyers recently as work-from-home flexibility becomes the new-norm. For those buyers who purchased in 2020 and made this property their permanent residence, the deadline to file for homestead exemption is March 1st, 2021. The Florida homestead exemption includes a $25,000 initial exemption and an additional $25,000

Central Florida and the Daytona Beach area have long been a leisurely landing spot for snow-birds, second-home buyers, and retirees, but in typical 2020 fashion, the surprisingly surging home market here is becoming the new norm. Recent real estate and lender data shows a strong rise in demand for second homes as more Americans seek out warmer and more welcoming scenery for remote offices or self-seclusion. Whether it's Daytona Beach Shores oceanfront, Ponce Inlet riverfront, or a popular golf neighborhood in Ormond or New Smyrna Beach, our second-home destinations are drawing a socially-distanced crowd. 

With this sustained demand, it is no surprise that 60% of Florida home listings are going under contract in less than 30 days, and locally, most

Have you ever been flustered over real estate phraseology or acrimonious over acronyms?

Check out the list below and let us know if there are any additions you need!

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year: Tax Season! Said no one, ever. But as the year comes to an end and we look forward to the holidays, many of us are also considering our tax implications for the coming year. It is no secret that Florida does not have a state income tax, which is fantastic, but unfortunately that’s not the only taxes to consider, especially for retirees. The good news is that a recent study by Kiplinger’s found that Florida was the 8th most tax-friendly state in the country for retirees. Florida has an about average sales tax rate, an average property tax rate (if you’re not on the oceanfront!) and there are additional homestead exemption benefits for homeowners aged 65+. Plus, there is no estate tax or inheritance tax

Everyone knows that purchasing a home can be one of the most enjoyable and exciting times of your life, but before the keys to your new Daytona Beach area home or condo are in hand, there is a process that can include some hurdles and stress.

Home inspections are a vital part of the home buying process. It is always recommended to have a professional, licensed inspector perform a full review of your potential new property. Inspectors verify basic items like the age and condition of the roof, HVAC, hot water heater, appliances and more. They also look at visible plumbing, electrical, and

Most would agree that no matter where you live, at some point, you begin to take the most desirable aspects of your hometown for granted. This is not to say that you completely forget the unique and appealing attributes of your area, but rather that a lack of parity creates a veiled look at life in your city. While the name Daytona Beach is very recognizable, it often elicits an array of associations. From its stock car racing roots, to motorcycle madness twice a year, to a fabled Spring Break past, Daytona Beach has made memories for millions over the years. But one of the most overlooked yet alluring aspects of life in Daytona Beach is found along the Atlantic coastline, where the
