    As of 10/01/2013 Profusion Property Group closed on this beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1435 square foot, split floor plan home at a sale price of $90,000. The home which had an over-sized master bedroom that is separate from the guest bedrooms also has a large kitchen with newer appliances & a breakfast bar feature that makes it easier to entertain guests. A large living room with vaulted ceilings and a formal dining room that is large enough for your holiday gatherings. There was a large, screened in back porch wired for TV so you can enjoy the games while grilling out on the large concrete patio. And to top it off, the roof was replaced in 2009 which will leave the proud new owners worry free for many years to come.

  • There are more homeowners that now have enough equity to sell!

    Posted Under: Home Buying, Home Selling, Investment Properties  |  September 9, 2013 8:17 AM  |  227 views  |  No comments

    There are approximately 10.7 Million residential homeowners nationwide who owe at least 25 percent or more on their mortgages than their properties are worth, and another 8.3 Million who are now only slightly under or above water, which is putting them on track to have high enough equity to sell sometime in the next 15 months without having to resort to a short sale.

    The 8.3 Million include homeowners that have a loan-to-value ration from 90 to 110 percent, meaning that they have between 10 percent positive & negative equity. Those homeowners represented 18 percent of all U.S. homeowners with a mortgage as of the beginning of September 2013.

    In Florida, RealtyTrack has reported that 40 percent of homeowners with a morgage(2,075,484) were "deepy underwater" with a loan-to-value ration of 125 percent or higher. Florida ranks third nationally behind Nevada (46 percent) & Illinois (40 percent).

    However, 13 percent of those in Florida with a mortgage(703,474) are "resurfacing" according to RealtyTrac and now have or will son have equity. In addition to that, 12 percent of Florida homeowners are "equity rich" with a Loan-to-Value of 50 percent or lower.

    RealtyTrac is also reporting that 15 percent of Florida homeowners currently going through foreclosure have equity in their homes.

    “Steadily rising home prices are lifting all boats in this housing market and should spill over into more inventory of homes for sale in the coming months,” says Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. “Homeowners who already have ample equity are quickly building on that equity, while the 8.3 million homeowners on the fence with little or no equity are on track to regain enough equity to sell before 2015 if home prices continue to increase at the rate of 1.33 percent per month that they have since bottoming out in March 2012.”

  • A new spot for home listings, projected on your car’s windshield!

    Posted Under: Home Buying, Home Selling, Foreclosure  |  September 9, 2013 8:14 AM  |  203 views  |  No comments

    TOKYO – Sept. 5, 2013 – Japan’s Pioneer has unveiled its NavGate HUD, which is a head-up display for drivers that projects information on a car windshield equivalent to that of a 30-inch display.

    The system uses a small projector that attaches to a vehicle’s sun visor to project an image onto the windshield, which allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road even when consulting their navigation app, something not possible when using a tablet or smartphone.

    “Two essential elements for driving are having a clear view on the road and knowing where you’re going,” Pioneer Europe’s Car Product Planning Manager Geert Verhoeven said. “Our NavGate HUD has been designed with both of those ideas in mind, ensuring drivers navigate without losing focus, keeping distractions to a minimum.”

    The DLP projector’s beam creates an image Pioneer says has both high contrast and deeply saturated colors, SlashGear reported Wednesday.

    “As it’s an aftermarket device, the NavGate HUD mounts right onto the car’s sun visor and can easily be removed for theft protection,” Verhoeven said.

    The system will be available in October at all Pioneer car audio dealerships, the company said, although it did not announce pricing.

  • 5 Real Estate Resolutions for Buyers and Sellers

    Posted Under: Home Buying, Home Selling  |  January 10, 2013 8:13 AM  |  170 views  |  No comments


    At the end of every December, people make all kinds of resolutions for the coming year.

    Typically, these are things they want to improve about themselves, ways to make their day-to-day personal or work life better or ideas to put them on track for a change.When it comes to real estate, resolutions don’t necessarily apply as it’s unlikely that you do a real estate transaction each year.

    But whether you plan to buy or sell, there are some real estate resolutions that buyers and sellers can and should make. Here are five to get you started.

    Buyers:

    • Resolve to get your financial house in order

    Planning a home purchase takes time and effort, so you should consider meeting with a mortgage professional early in the year. Know your credit score and understand what your financial situation looks like from a lender‘s perspective.

    If you have credit issues, identify what they are and the necessary steps to correct them. Sometimes, it can take six months to see your FICO score move up the much-needed 20 points to get you a better mortgage rate.

    A good real estate agent can recommend an experienced, local mortgage processional. Local is always important, because many real estate deals are made on relationships, and being able to meet face-to-face with your mortgage professional can be a big plus.

    • Resolve to start feeling out the market early

    You may think you only need to go to open houses once you’re ready to buy. But in reality, a buyer needs a couple of months learning the marketing, understanding home values, the prices per neighborhood and the market in general.

    Going to open houses in the neighborhoods where you want to buy will allow you to start feeling out the market. It may also be the best way to meet your future real estate agent. Many agent/buyer relationships are forged at open houses.

    Once you engage an agent, you may make several offers before you get into your dream home. Having your agent along for the ride will allow you to compare and contrast homes you’ve visited to the home you eventually buy.

    The homes you see and your experience feeling out the market will serve as the building blocks toward becoming an informed buyer and making your best offer.
