Tallahassee Monthly Lis Pendens Filings December 2010

New lis pendens filings in Tallahassee dropped 62% in December when compared to December 2009, and foreclosures fell 2%. This indicates that banks are more willing to proceed on mortgage foreclosures than they have been in the past, but it also might be a signal that distressed properties and mortgage defaults might be finally starting to slow. Currently, the foreclosure sale to Lis Pendens filings ratio is at an all time high of 53%, as we can see with the blue line in the foreclosure graph below.

Final 2010 Housing Market Update

December 31, 2010 - Today seems to be the right day to publish the final 2010 Housing Market Update. Our data is current and our real estate graphs are prepared, so let's take a last look at the 2010 state of the Tallahassee housing market.

Pending home sales are in a positive trend. While the current numbers are very low, a positive trend is GREAT NEWS. Everything that we have been seeing since the end of the Homebuyers Tax Credit (up to now) had been indicating a very poor 2011, but our market might be growing some legs right now.

Why You Should Create A Gmail Account

If you saw yesterday's video on how to review a business on google, then you might be interested in today's video on how to create a gmail account. Many of yesterday's viewers appreciated the video and why it would be beneficial, but many people either had questions about having a gmail account or wondered what others without an account would do.

So that prompted me to think about all the reasons why you should create a gmail account and I even produced a quick "how to" video on creating an an account. As I started producing this blog, I did a google search and found many articles, stories, and advertisements covering the issue of creating a google account, but I specifically wanted to see why somebody should create...

How To Do Your Google Business Review

Google Business ReviewHave you ever wondered how to provide a Google business review of a local company? I was doing a google search for "realtor in tallahassee florida" when I came across our web site and noticed that a customer provided a Google business review of Joe Manausa Real Estate in more than 20 separate cases. I can tell you it was a pleasant surprise, so I decided to figure out how they got there, and more importantly, how we can get more of our customers to provide similar Google business review.

Tallahassee High End Neighborhoods

I received a lot of feedback from yesterday's blog about turnover rates in Tallahassee neighborhoods. The most common question related to subdivisions that were not listed in the post, such as this question from Gene Ward who wrote

Why wasn’t Highgrove included in this survey?

Since there are over 1,300 subdivisions in Tallahassee, my reports will usually only contain a subset of them in order to remain relatively short. Yesterday's list of home sales in Tallahassee only included subdivisions...

Realtor In Tallahassee Florida

As a REALTOR® in Tallahassee, Florida who does a lot of marketing on the internet, I like to see what others are doing around the Country and around the world. I was pleasantly surprised tonight as I was checking out our customer ratings on Google. I had been googling "realtor in victoria bc" after receiving a compliment from a top agent in their market. I was curious to see how and where he showed up on google's search results. After doing so, I figured I would check out how Joe Manausa Real Estate ranked when googling "realtor in tallahassee florida."

And that is where I saw five (5) unsolicited customer reviews. Each one had a five-star rating and each one shared a story about a different transaction involving...

High Turnover Rate Subdivisions In Tallahassee

In preparing for our Weekly Special Housing Report which is emailed to subscribers every Monday morning, I poured through a lot of data on Tallahassee Subdivisions in order to find out which ones had the highest turnover rate. To measure the turnover rate, I divided the number of existing home sales by the total number of homes in each subdivision.

In the real estate graph below, two important statistics are measured for each Tallahassee Subdivision. On the left axis, the turnover rate...

Upgrade Time At The Tallahassee Real Estate Blog

Upgrading-ServersToday is a special day here at the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog. Our site has outgrown our humble beginnings and we are migrating to our own server. In laymen's terms, we got too big fer our britches.

Believe it or not, we hosted this blog on a shared hosting plan through Hostgator, which basically meant we were on the same hard drive and same server as hundreds of other web sites and blogs. It was a great learning process for us, and who can argue with a hosting plan that costs just $6 per month? As those who know us well know ... we have...
