1.16 Acre Commercial Potential Lot

Location, location, location…this one has it! Excellent development potential! Located only few
blocks from I-75 and just off Hwy 27 this location is growing daily. The total lot size for this parcel is
1.16 acres w 360' of Highway frontage. Located just around the corner from Chewy, Advanced Auto,
Fed Ex and more, and directly across the street from the planned addition of Shands Hospital. As
currently Zoned R-2 (2 family residential), this location would be great for new multi family dwelling,
but it has excellent potential for zoning for commercial or industrial development as was successfully
done in the surrounding parcels. Don’t miss this opportunity to buy before the area grows even more
and values increase.

 

Potential for Foreclosures?

I am getting a lot of people asking when the next foreclosure crash is going to happen.

Attom’s Midyear 2022 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report found that 164,581 U.S. properties had foreclosure filings, which includes default notices, scheduled auctions or bank repossessions.

The number includes the first six months of 2022 and is 153% higher year-to-year, but the figures are skewed by numbers generated during the pandemic when government orders slowed the process.

Foreclosure activity across the United States continued its slow, steady climb back to pre-pandemic levels in the first half of 2022,” said Rick Sharga, executive vice president of market intelligence at ATTOM. “While overall foreclosure activity is still running significantly below historic averages, the dramatic increase in foreclosure starts suggests that we may be back to normal levels by sometime in early 2023.”

I really do not think we are going to see a spike in foreclosures anytime soon, especially in Florida. There is definitely an evening out after the pandemic, yet it won’t be anything drastic. We are seeing a market adjustment, but with the past super low interest rates being 3-4%, I do not think people will stop paying for their mortgages. The asterisk with this is the economy, inflation and the potential for recession. Those are factors that could affect the housing market. With strong jobs and cheaper mortgages, I do not see the foreclosure market changing anytime soon in our beautiful state of Florida.

Lakefront Acreage / Saddlebag Lake

3.79 Acres Lakefront Property on Saddlebag Lake

Saddlebag Lake located in Weirsdale, Marion County, Florida, lies minutes from The Villages and Ocala.  This gently sloped acreage overlooks a large, spring-fed private lake, a countryside oasis with great Largemouth Bass, Catfish, and Bream fishing as well as a few otters to compete with. The lake is well-suited to small craft such as canoes or kayaks.

Build your own dock, fence your own horse pasture, this property is a rare find.

Only minutes from The Villages, Ocala National Forest, or downtown Ocala. Just over an hour to Orlando, Disney World, Universal, or the Florida Gulf Beaches. The Ocala National Forest draws flocks of visitors from around the world due to the natural beauty here. The crystal clear waters are inhabited by manatees, otters, and gators.  The area is rife with wildlife—bobcats, Florida black bears, deer, wild hogs, and wild turkeys—making it a hunter’s paradise, as long as they adhere to the state laws. Miles of hiking trails wind through Central Florida, and just to the North there are cave diving adventures in our underground springs. The Ocala area is also popular with thoroughbred horse aficionados.

Nearby Lady Lake and The Villages have a multitude of eateries. Those looking to spend some time on the links will be delighted to know there are courses and clubs nearby!

Solitude on your private lakefront property just minutes away from most every amenity you could ever desire. Live in Paradise.

‘Hometown Heroes’ Program

A new program called ‘Hometown Heroes’ started June 1st which allows 50-plus careers to qualify for home-buying help up to $25K – helping over 3M Floridians. Income limits start at $120K, home prices at $420K.

The Florida Hometown Heroes Housing program makes homeownership affordable for eligible frontline
community workers by providing down payment and closing cost assistance to income-qualified
homebuyers so you can purchase a primary residence in the community in which you work and serve.

Eligible borrowers can receive up to 5% of their total loan amount (maximum of $25,000) in the form of
a 0%, non-amortizing, 30-year deferred second mortgage.

The program applies to first-time homebuyers as defined by the IRS, which says “first-time” means “someone who has not owned a home in at least the past three years.” Homeowners must also actually live in a home to be disqualified. A renter who inherited a home in North Carolina, for example – one they never actually lived in – still qualifies. Renters who own an investment property also may qualify, providing they only own one.

In addition to Hometown Heroes, a program called “Salute our Soldiers” is for veterans. Rules are similar, but they don’t have to qualify as first-time buyers.

The money isn’t a gift, it’s a loan – but a loan that carries no interest and does not have to be paid back until the homeowners satisfies the mortgage, sells the house, vacates the house or refinances. Paid-off Hometown Hero loan money then gets rolled back into the program to help more potential Florida homeowners.

Only lenders approved by Florida Housing can participate – about 240 in the state. Lenders have some flexibility to remove one co-borrower from an application if it helps a couple qualify for the program. In most cases, a copy of the buyer’s license must be submitted. If an occupation does not require a license, however, they must submit a copy of the business’s license where they work. 

This is a great program for anyone eligible. Check out the attached flyer to see if this could be for you!
