Homes in Coachman Ridge Clearwater: A Seller's or a Buyer's Market?

Many people dream of someday being able to own their own home. For others, they are looking to sell their current home and move into something larger to accommodate their growing family. Whatever your reason is for purchasing or selling a home in Florida, there is no time like the present to do so and Coachman Ridge would be an excellent choice.

Go here where you will see the number of days on the market in Coachman Ridge is only 52 versus an overall Clearwater average of 110. In addition, there are only 3 homes for sale right now out of a total of 255 in Coachman Ridge which makes this a seller's market for this area in my opinion. Keep in mind that it can also be a good choice for buyer's as prices have remained somewhat flat and are expected to go up considerable after the November elections which is typical. Also, the fact that Coachman Ridge is in one of the best locations in Pinellas County at an affordable price, makes this subdivision and excellent choice.


The economy in Florida is doing very well.

Because the economy is continuing to grow at a healthy rate rate, more and more people will be looking to purchase a home. This means that anyone interested in selling their home stands a better chance of being able to take advantage of the market right now and the Clearwater, Florida is an ideal place to live. Home prices are predicted to go up by about 5 percent, while...

Buying Your First Florida Vacation Home: Tips for You

When you decide to take the plunge and buy a vacation home in sunny and beautiful Florida, you may be unsure how to proceed with the process. After all, buying a home in top vacation destinations like Clearwater, Florida is both exciting and unnerving all at the same time, especially because you do not currently reside in Florida. This article will give you some great tips that you can use when buying that first Florida vacation home so that you can be sure you get the right home at the right price for you.


Tip #1: Never Buy Your Vacation Home Based Solely On Photos

Many people want to buy their vacation home ahead of time so that they will have a place to stay on their next big holiday. If this is your goal, then you may be tempted to simply buy a house based on the realtor photographs. This is never a good idea since some photographers can use special filters and exposures that can misrepresent the “reality”. However, real estate agents like Christopher Milson can take videos and upload them on to YouTube so you can get a much better idea of what you’re seeing. Ideally of course, you should see a house in person so that you can know with certainty that it is the right home for you.

Are Interest Rates Going Up?


Market Update

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

What's going on and why does it matter?

Mortgage bonds opened lower today, and are sitting right at their 100-day moving average, which has been operating as a strong level of technical support over the past few weeks.  This is a big week for the markets with lots of high-tiered economic reports that may sway the market wildly one way or another.  Of particular interest is Friday's non-farm payrolls report, preceded on Thursday by an OPEC meeting on oil, and an ECB meeting on European monetary policy.  If the economic reports are favorable this week, the Fed may be more inclined to increase rates in June.  If this happens, the Fed may bring an end to their mortgage bond buying program sooner rather than later.  The Fed is scheduled to purchase up to $1.4 billion in GNMA mortgage bonds today, and they'll be purchasing up to $2.375 billion in 30-yr conventional mortgage bonds tomorrow.  Today's personal income and core inflation numbers came out in line with market expectations.  However, expect lots of volatility this week as the market deals with the deluge of economic reports that will be released in the coming days.  In the midst of all this, it'll be interesting to see if mortgage bond prices can hold above their 100-day moving average.  If they break below that level, the next hard stop on the way down will be their 200-day moving average,...
