Fabulous September Is Here!
September 2020
Greetings!

We are sending you thoughts of health and well-being during these challenging times. And while every aspect of our lives seems to have changed greatly in the past several months--the real estate market continues to thrive. 

The past few months have seen a surge of Florida sales activity - fueled by low mortgage rates and an influx of buyers from northern states. Prices remain stable, but days on the market has narrowed significantly. 

Residential real estate is robust, while professional office space has seen a slight dip in volume, due to a reduced need for offices. Will this change in the immediate future? We do not know.  Both retail and professional office space tenants will be making decisions very soon on whether to stay or leave--and this change also provides opportunities. Change is always a constant, we just need to keep our eyes on the horizon.

This month we introduce a new Sales Associate, Priscilla Warren, also new listings, local real estate statistics, related industry articles, area facts, Broker News Bites, and a reminder of our upcoming Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

Please let us know if we can be of service to you in providing an updated valuation of your home, land or business. Our firm has experience in business brokerage as well as land and commercial transactions. Let us help you to build a plan for either retirement or expansion. We are happy to serve and will come to you!

UNIQUE FLORIDA PROPERTIES
FLORIDA 'HAUNTED' CASTLE FOR SALE
A castle with a history of ghost stories is now on the market in Florida. The "Sound Rock Castle," located at 55 Oceana Drive in Key Largo, was built in 1924 and was just the second home in the area, and is now the oldest remaining home in Key Largo. According to the Historical Preservation Society of the Upper Keys, the castle was designed with 3-foot deep walls made with native coral rock, and was originally the home of New Jersey dentist Dr. George Engel. Despite being completely flooded during the devastating Labor Day hurricane of 1935, the home survived. Asking price: $1,550,000. (Source: Creative Loafing)
AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT IRC
"OLD VERO MAN"
Vero Beach is home of the “Old Vero Man.” The nickname “Old Vero Man” (or possibly "Old Vero Woman") was given to a rare find of fossilized human bones. In 1915, a Florida State geologist discovered what could be the oldest human remains in North America. The excavation site is a popular tourist spot. Other discoveries on the site include prehistoric animals like mastodons, mammoths, and saber-toothed cats. To read more about this interesting fact, visit The Old Vero Ice Age Sites Committee.
