Tallahassee Monthly Lis Pendens Filings January 2012

New lis pendens filings in Tallahassee rose a whopping 67% in January when compared to January 2011, and foreclosures skyrocketed 208%. We have to be a bit concerned as four out of the past five months have seen new lis pendens filings rise, which could be the sign of growth in future foreclosure sales. Currently, the foreclosure sale to Lis Pendens filings ratio has dropped from an all time high eight months ago to 47%, as we can see with the blue line in the foreclosure graph above.

How To Ensure You Don't Pay Florida Tourist Development Tax

Tourist Development TaxHave you recently received a letter from the Leon County Tax Collector, advising you to pay a Florida Tourist Development Tax?

If you are a real estate investor in Florida, and you own residential investment properties, you should be aware of this tax.

Fortunately, the tourist development tax only applies to the rental of living quarters or accommodations for a term of six months or less, and thus has been nicknamed the “bed tax.”

I received an...

Homeowner Alert: The New "Refinance A Home" Scam To Avoid

Refinance A HomeI am concerned that the next wave of "putting a finger in the dike of the housing crisis" cures will be built around risky loans created solely to help you refinance a home.

One reader noted that many of the large lenders plan on unveiling a program in March that will allow homeowners to refinance...

The Real Key To Marketing A House For Sale In Tallahassee

house for sale in TallahasseeAnybody who has been in the real estate business for more than a week can tell you that "real estate is local," so why are most real estate companies focused on marketing a house for sale in Tallahassee on the large aggregate sites that are anything but local?
