As a realtor, I often have friends ask me “how’s the market doing?” Well, the market couldn’t be any better for buyers or for sellers.

A few weeks ago we brought you information on the first time home purchasing process. This week we present to you the home inspection and appraisal process.   A home inspection is an intensive and efficient assessment of the state of a private property. It is a finished physical exam of the general honesty, usefulness, and general wellbeing of a home and its different parts. The reason for this procedure is to guarantee that home purchasers know precisely what is being acquired, before finishing the exchange.    Over the span of a home inspection, the inspector will assess the foundation, framing, roofing, site drainage, attic, pipes, warming, electrical framework, chimneys, fireplaces, asphalt, wall, stairs, decks, yards, entryways,…

In 1961 there were 250 homes in the city of Port St Lucie, and now with over 171,000 residents there is no doubt that port St. Lucie is growing by the day. A large contribution to the growth is of course not only from the city having a substantial employment rate to keep up with, but also a competitive real estate market. Between July and October of 2015 the median sale price of homes in St Lucie was $160,000, and median sale price per sqft being $98. One of Port St Lucie's greatest developments is the Tradition community. This community that sits west of I-95 intersection of Gatlin Blvd is about 13,000,000 square feet of commercial area, and has room for over 18,000 residences. Tradition is the largest residential development area from the peak of I-95

When I think of the city of Stuart Fl, the first image that comes to my mind is the ocean. Stuart has been known to have lovely seaside charm and lively beach culture, and you can get up close and personal with some of the native wildlife ocean critters at my favorite place... the Florida Oceanographic Society. Here you can enjoy just a fraction of Florida’s 8,500+ miles of tidal shoreline.

Founded in 1964, the Florida Oceanographic Center strives to educate the public and provide research of Florida’s coastal ecosystems. This is a 57­acre marine life nature center located on Hutchinson Island in the city of Stuart, FL sitting between the Indian River and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Some of the daily activities in the Oceanographic
