Gainesville Market is Picking Up !

Don’t be over whelmed with the Gloom and Doom on the news media. Our Real Estate market here in Gainesville is picking up….and right on schedule too.

It\'s a Buyers MarketOur busiest season is from April through September. Families start planning their move and begin looking for homes so they can “really move” once school is out. The student community that rolls into Gainesville has gotten started with searching for homes and condos too.

Many buyers may be coming to Gainesville for their professional careers, and they are starting to look now because of the low interest rates, the large inventory of homes that are currently on the market, and they are all beginning to realize that NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY !!

Don’t let the national press get you depressed about how things are here in Gainesville Florida ! Gainesville is Great!

A recent article in USA TODAY says that Gainesville has done very well in relationship to other areas in Florida.

If you have hopes & dreams of owning a home for the first time in your life, then pick up the phone and talk to your banker or a lender ( or call me). Find out if you can “qualify” for a loan. The FHA Program is great for buyers now! Getting pre-qualified on a loan, will empower you as a buyer.

Call me if you have any questions about Gainesville’s real estate market. I love working with buyers, so let’s talk about what you are wanting in a home!

Good News from CNNMoney – It’s a Buyer’s Market!

Finally some good news coming from the National Media.

A recent article on is very informative with regard to home values across the country. The main theme in the article is EXCELLENT NEWS!

Home Appreciation MapOur current market now is giving home buyers the best buys they’ve had since 2004 !!

I have been shouting this from my soapbox, website and blog site….and finally the national media is starting to pass along good news to prospective home buyers.

The condition of any real estate market is “Localized” and our market here in Gainesville should not be compared with markets in South Florida.

We have much more stability here, and this map shows which areas have been the hardest hit in the country.

It’s a great time to be a buyer ! And it’s easy to do!

First, get yourself a Buyer’s Agent Realtor to represent you (not the seller).

Second, get a local lender to talk to you about what loan program is good for you and your budget.

Third….start shopping for a home!

There are many homes & condos waiting for buyers just like YOU here in Alachua County.

Think of shopping for a home as a “process of elimination”.

Please call me and we can talk about your “wish list” of what you want in a home or condo. Let me help you find a great home!

Condos and Townhouses in Gainesville ~ Near UF

You will have a wonderful selection of condos and townhomes in Gainesville, FL. If your career or your studies are bringing you to the University of Florida or any of our hospital networks here in Gainesville, you may be curious as to the different types of lifestyle choices you will have here.

There are different types of communities, and you will just need to let me know which one fits your need best. The more I know about what “YOU” want, the better I am at finding you the right homes to review.

If you are a serious medical or law student, I assume the most important feature must be “Location”. And the second most importance will be “peace & quiet” in a community that is not full of loud, partying neighbors.

I hate to assume, but I think best that you will want a community that will take care of the grounds, lawn work, and full exterior maintenance on the buildings. That way, you don’t have to paint or worry about replacing the roof!

So many people think that Gainesville is a college town (which it is), yet we have a very large “serious student” population in Medical School, Residency Programs, Law School, Dental School, VET School, and many Master & PhD programs.

Best Time to BuyWhy be here for 3-4 years and waste your hard earned money on “RENT”??!!

Let me find you some “peace & quiet” for your lifestyle here in Gainesville. Please call me and we can discuss your needs, and I will get to work finding you a great place.

I want your transition to Gainesville to be smooth, let me be your Realtor in Gainesville!
