Tampa Bay market is starting to heat up!

November 8, 2009

The statistics show that the real estate market in the Tampa Bay area is really starting to pick up. If you’re thinking of buying a new house or condo you might want to start getting serious now. Have prices hit rock bottom yet? There is no way to tell, but most people in the business don’t see them going much lower. If you can buy real estate priced relatively cheaper than comparable properties you should be in good shape over the course of the upcoming months or even year.

Breaking News: Congress Extends Tax Credit

November 6, 2009

Tax credit extension passes House and Senate

By Florida Realtors®

WASHINGTON – Nov. 5, 2009 – The $8,000, first-time homebuyer tax credit has not yet been extended beyond its Nov. 30 end date, but it’s very close to gaining a longer life.

The extension was added as an amendment to an existing bill, HR 3548, that extends unemployment benefits. The U.S. Senate passed that bill on Wednesday and, after debate, the U.S. House passed HR 3548 this afternoon. It now needs only President Obama’s signature to become law, and the White House has indicated it will sign it, perhaps as early as tomorrow.

Until the president signs the bill, however, it is not law.

In addition to extending the tax credit for first-time homebuyers under the current rules, the bill adds a smaller tax credit for move-up homebuyers who have lived in the house for five of the past seven years. The bill also increases the income limits of homebuyers from $75,000 (single) to $125,000; and from $150,000 (married) to $225,000.

Florida downpayment assistance

After the president signs the bill and extends the tax credit, the Florida Homebuyer Opportunity Program – a downpayment and closing costs assistance program relating to the federal tax credit -automatically gets extended too. The state still has about $28 million available for homebuyers. The money is essentially a loan to first-time buyers; they receive it upfront, use it for a downpayment or other costs, and pay it back once they get their federal refund.

The Death of Print Newspapers is Near

November 1, 2009

I think it is inevitable that, in the near future, most print newspapers and magazines will go 100% electronic. Fewer and fewer people will be interested in receiving information the old fashioned way. Only those businesses that embrace the new communication technologies will survive.

The other day I was talking to my wife about how newspapers are going out of business across the country and I thought of a new way to deliver the daily paper to consumers. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to order and receive the newspaper directly on your television set? Imagine not having to hold the huge paper in your hands. You could use a remote control to flip through the pages, click on links, access videos and even save and email favorite articles. Advertisers could include direct links to their business web sites.

I guess what I’m saying is…the Internet will probably soon be available through the TV in your living room. And I know it already is if you use an Apple TV, but I’m more talking about a system where the Internet is available, by default, on all cable TV systems.

The death of print newspapers and magazines is near. He who accepts the future can capitalize on it.
