Norm Luppino – Perspectives – Historical REAL Estate

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 […]

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 […]

Architect Ralph Twitchell – The Making Of A Sarasota Legend By Norm Luppino Ralph Twitchell’s name is best associated as being the “Father of the Sarasota School of Architecture”. He is also noted for having practiced with two of the nation’s most renown 20th century architects. The first was with prominent New York’s society architect Dwight Baum, whose credits in Sarasota include John and Mabel Ringling’s Ca’ d’Zan and the Sarasota Courthouse. In the late 1940’s, Twitchell teamed with Paul Rudolph, who went on to become internationally famous as one of world’s most acclaimed modernist architects during the 1960’s and […]

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, […]

Are You Thinking Of Selling Your Home? By Lori Collins Rodriguez and Helaine Giddens Seller Beware! Reasons FSBO are a BAD Idea! Homeowners obviously know their homes better than anyone, but that doesn’t mean they’re the best salespersons for their properties. Some sellers are tempted to try a For Sale by Owner (FSBO) transaction because their local community is in the midst of a sellers’ market and they think they can sell easily without help. Others try the FSBO route because they want to maximize their profits and avoid paying a commission to a Realtor. However, statistics show that selling […]

The Emerging Trends In Retail And Commercial Real Estate By William Henry, PhD The keynote addresses delivered by retail and commercial real estate experts at the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) annual RECON conference in Las Vegas last month can be boiled down into three major themes: 1) The oversupply of single purpose retail space is causing the repurposing of large underperforming retail properties to other uses The United States has the highest amount of single purpose retail space in the world. Per recent census numbers, for every man, woman, and child, the US has more than twice the […]

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?

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, […]
