Why home buyers don't need to shop during the summer

Shopping for a home during the fall months may be ideal for Florida residents. It may represent a period in which there are fewer people looking for homes, and this may result in fewer offers being made on those properties. When there aren't multiple offers on a property, it reduces the odds of getting into a bidding war, which may allow a person to get a home at a fair price.

Pop-up stores offer options

Major disruptions in the retail sector across Florida and around the country have created changes within the commercial real estate market. Many retailers have either gone out of business or have retreated from brick-and-mortar stores to concentrate on e-commerce efforts. As a result, landlords and property managers are actively seeking new commercial tenants while entrepreneurs are likewise seeking opportunities.

Do you know what unlawful detainer means?

An unlawful detainer action is a way for a landlord to remove a person who refuses to leave a rented residence  despite other efforts. As a Florida landlord, you may find yourself dealing with the unpleasant process of eviction and tenant removal from time to time, and it is in your best interests to know how to do so legally and peacefully.

Increasing home prices make ARMs more popular

As property values increase, Florida residents may be willing to get creative when it comes to financing a home purchase. According to Inside Mortgage Finance, there was a 40 percent increase in adjustable rate mortgages between the first and second quarters of 2017. While they offer lower rates and a rate that is fixed for five years, they may be riskier in the long-term compared to the traditional 30-year fixed mortgage.
