I just read about this idea, this morning, and I thought I would discuss it here on the Mango. This is a exciting new concept, issuing visas for people who qualify age wise and income wise, to come to Florida to retire. It seems that a Retirement Visa would help Florida disproportionally to any other state in the union. Almost 30% of all real estate transactions in Florida are with international buyers! A Retirement Visa would be a great help to Florida, a...Continue Reading!

Calculating how many days a home has been on the market can be a challenge because many times a property will come on the market and go off the market several times before actually selling. The question becomes at what point do you start counting? Lets say that a house came on the market in July of 2008, then was taken off the market for 4 weeks in March, then went back on the market in April and sold within days. ...Continue Reading!

I read blogs, news and listen to debates with specialists on TV; and the more I hear the more questions I have. And, I guess, I am not alone. So, I shared my concerns with my friend Philip Hatfield who...Continue Reading!

Below is an excerpt from his daily commentary which concisely explains why Chinese investment in Gold may move U.S. mortgage interest rates higher over the next two weeks. "I look for the upward pressure on mortgage interest rates to be a bit more intense during the coming week given this morning’s news of...Continue Reading!
Week of April 23, 2009 Some of us aren't just sitting as the recession steamrolls through. They're fighting back. One recession-buster comes from our visitor industry's hub, Miami Beach. Don't say nothing is new under the sun. It is on the Beach. Surprisingly, innovations come from the Mayor's Blue Ribbon Task Force on Tourism. Such studies usually gather dust, but this team's 28-page April plan is already in action. Not a moment too soon. Hard-nosed taskforce Chairman Stuart Blumberg, who heads the Greater Miami...Continue Reading!
