Norm Luppino – Perspectives – Historical REAL Estate

Friday, October 12, 2018

0 Comments

The 1950’s Paved the Way for Future Booms By Norm Luppino Mention Florida’s Gulf Coast and one immediately conjures images of coastal themed homes, white sandy beaches, and lush, palm-infused tropical landscaping. During the past century, many events and market trends have helped shape the place we know today as Manatee County. The famous Florida Land Boom of the 1920s introduced the first “skyscrapers” and transformed “Bradentown” from a small dot on the map to an emerging metropolitan city. In the 1960s, the proliferation of mobile home park communities popularized this area as an affordable designation for retirees from the […]

Fall Inspired By Becca Z. Towery As a Worth New York Stylist and the Founder of We’ve Got Style I am often asked about seasonal looks & trends. This season I am excited to bring to Sarasota the Worth New York Fall Collection, inspired by travel, prep schools, and soft textures. Worth New York channeled Amelia Earhart’s military vibe to take a worldly trip, borrowed rep stripes from the boys, and knitted the softest cables in this collection. What happens when strong meets gentle? When tailored modernity mixes with soft & pretty, and Tea Rose bumps up against Navy and […]

Your Doctor Told You To Do Yoga – Now What? By (L) Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT and (R) Cheryl Albright OTR/L, RYT-200 Some physicians are now prescribing or suggesting yoga for all sorts of medical conditions. That’s appreciated! But now what? Do they have recommendations or will you be left on your own to find one? Most won’t really know how to explain yoga other than to have their patients go for stretching and strengthening. It’s also likely they won’t know where to send them and it’s possible they think all yoga practices are the same. How is the patient […]

Money Flows Across Borders By Patricia Tan The U.S.A. and the U.S. dollar have long been considered safe havens for capital from around the world, and our real estate market has been a beneficiary of that money flow. We see money fleeing political instability in its own country, or simply being invested here for a return. The strength of the U.S. dollar in international markets does have an impact on the rate at which money flows across our borders. A weak dollar tends to attract foreign investment, while a strong dollar may encourage prof-it-taking and repatriation of funds. Canadians represent […]

Hair Accessories By Sheila Venancia Hair accessories come in lots of different shapes and sizes. Many are great for securing your hairstyles, some are a good way of getting your bangs off your face, and others just work as hair adornments. Try what suits your look the best. Jaw Clips Jaw clips come in a range of sizes, so you’re likely to find one suitable for your hair’s length. Closer spaced teeth mean they’re more suitable for finer hair types. Mini jaw clips are a great way of separating pieces of hair. These work best for casual occasions, like when […]

Welcome! To Our Summer Real Estate Buyers By Patricia Tan Just as our tourism market is becoming less seasonal, so too is our real estate market. The gap is narrowing between the number of transactions closed as a result of our winter seasonal visitors, and transactions closed during the steamy summer months. No sooner have we waved goodbye to our winter residents and visitors, then we start to greet summer tourists who come to sample our sunny shores. We hope they will stay a while and enjoy the Florida lifestyle. Many of our summer visitors will be from other countries, […]
