The Legendary Crosley Estate: An Upside To A Real Estate Bust By Norm Luppino Few properties were as affected by the dramatic swings in Florida’s volatile real-estate market as the historic Crosley estate on Sarasota Bay. But as evidence that there is often an upside within a market bust, it was during some of Florida’s biggest real estate slumps that the Crosley mansion was built, later saved, and finally restored to create one the premiere cultural facilities on Florida’s west coast. The first attempt to develop the property occurred during the famous land boom of the 1920s. In 1925 – […]

Property Owners And The 2018 Legislative Session By Barry Grooms So here we are half way through the 2018 legislative session and we are left wondering if anything is going to get done. Floridians are asking themselves what have the elected officials done to help property owners in our area. The answer is not as simple as one may think, you see the hundreds of bills that are filed are filled with special interest and “pork”. 2018 is an election year. Couple that with defect years because of the 2017 hurricanes and you come up with a conservative session. You […]

Are You Ready? By Patricia Tan A growing number of U.S. citizens are choosing to live in other countries. Are you ready to join them? In 2016 more Americans than ever before surrendered their passports and chose to renounce their U.S. citizenship. The latest statistics available for 2017 also show that the numbers are continuing to climb. But this is only part of the picture. An ever-increasing number of Americans simply choose to live in a foreign country while retaining their citizenship. The decision to relocate may be based on personal, economic, financial or lifestyle choices, but it is most […]

Have Hurricanes Had An Effect On The Housing Market In The Sarasota/Bradenton Area? By Barry Grooms First of all, I want to state the obvious and say YES hurricanes affect housing numbers. However, has it hurt the market? There are many reasons why over 1000 people every day make Florida their new home. Ask yourself why you are here; are you a native, a snowbird, a transplant or a work relocation? Regardless of why you’re here or how you got here there is one commonality in all of us, we love this place! So, let’s look at the numbers behind […]

Barry Grooms – Perspectives – REAL Estate Legislation

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

You Should Be Afraid, Very Afraid! By Barry Grooms Under all is the land and private property rights are considered the “American Dream”. The 5th Amendment protects property by stating, “No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, with out just compensation.” Our rights are something that most of citizens take for granted until it affects them directly and very few monitor the machine called legislation in Tallahassee. Year after year law makers and special interest strategize on legislation that may have adverse effect […]

5 Things Foreigners* Ask About Spending Time in Florida By Patricia Tan Over the years I have worked with real estate buyers from many countries around the world. Their home countries and the properties they buy may vary, but their questions remain the same. Here are the top five questions I hear from overseas customers considering a longer stay in Florida: How long can I stay in my Florida vacation home, without running into visa issues? Once an overseas visitor has purchased a vacation home here, they can apply at the U.S. Embassy in their home country for the B1/B2 […]

Americans Venture Overseas For Real Estate By Patricia Tan The strength of the U.S. Dollar has led to an increase in the number of Americans considering the purchase of real estate in another country. Their motivations can be many and varied: from straightforward investment potential, to life style choices, less expensive retirement living to a desire to reconnect with their ethnic roots. Whatever the motivation, the decision to buy real estate in another country is not one that should be taken lightly. My advice to anyone considering such a purchase right now would include: • Conduct extensive research on the […]

The Paper Trail – Wallpaper and Your Interior Design By Marcia Norris It’s the luxury home you’ve been waiting for and a clean slate to apply the style that best suits you. Should you hire a professional interior designer to avoid making costly mistakes with the wrong materials and finishes? If you want to stylize, personalize and customize your home, the answer is yes. But more importantly, I’ve found that no matter which style you want to work with, it’s the quality of the materials that count. We all love luxury, and we notice it in a cut crystal chandelier, […]

Taxing Matters For Non-Residents Who Own U.S. Real Estate By Patricia Tan What season Is it? Some might say “Spring” as temperatures are in the 70s, others may say “Tourist Season” as they sit patiently in heavy traffic, but as I write this article I am working on my annual accounts, so I would say “It’s Tax Season!” It is this time of year when I get questions from some of my overseas customers who are working on their tax returns too, and I thought it might be useful to spend a few minutes looking at how foreign real estate […]

My business partner, Carla Rayman, and I had a head start on this.

We started our research in October and are happy to share some of that with you here.

What Does BREXIT Mean To Our Real Estate Market? By Patricia Tan I was born and raised in England and watched with interest as the United Kingdom decided its future – whether to remain in the European Union or leave and become autonomous again. While it was a very close vote, the majority of the British people did vote to exit the E.U. The exact details of BREXIT will be negotiated over the next two years, and its full impact will not be known for some time. Many readers know that I make several trips each year to the United […]

ADA Testers And A Congressional Response By William Henry, PhD The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has spawned a cottage industry of testers and their lawyers who travel from site to site looking for nonconformities. The ADA is a Federal civil rights act, creating the right to bring discrimination suits with regard to persons encountering real or perceived barriers preventing them from fully using facilities. When issues are found they file suit. As with any activity of this type, some of the suits are legitimate and some are not. Florida and California are the two hottest spots in the Country […]

Mortgage Rates Fall To Historic Lows After Brexit By David V. McLaughlin Sarasota/Bradenton Home Prices Continue To Rise When the United Kingdom voted to leave its place in the European Union, mortgage rates hit historic lows. Mortgage rates dropped about one-eighth of a point after the financial commotion overseas. With interest rates already at three-year lows, this affords buyers a significant opportunity to refinance or purchase a home. This is great news to those on the Suncoast searching for their perfect dream home. As prices continue to rise, and inventory drops, the market will continue to heat up. These low […]
