5 Great Apps for Homeowners

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

 

Technology is a wonderful thing and, as luck would have it, there’s a bunch of handy smartphone apps created specifically for homeowners! Here are five great ones…

 

 

  iScape

If you’ve got outdoor spaces that you’d like to improve, iScape is the app for you! This app uses your phone’s camera to allow you to drag and drop elements like trees, plants, fences, water features, etc. and visualize how it all fits together in your specific yard!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HAPPY PLANT       

This app is a very simple solution to a very common problem. If you frequently forget to water your plants, use Happy Plant to serve as a smart reminder system! There’s also a cool feature which creates time-lapse videos of your plants surviving, thriving, and growing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

HomeZada

This app is like six apps rolled into one! HomeZada helps homeowners with everything from managing remodel projects to keeping track of home-related financials and much more. As they put it, HomeZada is, “A personal finance solution that is a digital hub of all the important information about your largest financial asset – your home.”

 

 

Letgo      

We all have too much stuff, right? Whether it’s stuff we don’t need, stuff we haven’t used in years, or stuff we don’t even remember getting, the Letgo app is here to help. Simply snap a pic of something you no longer want/need, list it on Letgo, and you’re done!

 

 

 

  AroundMe

This app is endlessly helpful whether you’re new to the area or visiting somewhere you’ve never been. AroundMe basically gives you all the information you need about various businesses near you. A straightforward concept, but a very handy resource when you need it!

Homebuying Options to Consider

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

Expand Your Homebuying Options With a Fixer-Upper Mortgage

It’s the lament of first-time homebuyers in just about every housing market: There aren’t enough entry-level homes available that are move-in ready.

One solution is to broaden the search to fixer-uppers. With a renovation mortgage, you can get one home loan that combines the purchase price with the cost of improvements.

Not enough affordable homes

Entry-level homes are scarce, whether new or used. Most gains in housing inventory have been in upscale homes, according to Realtor.com.

The decline in entry-level new construction is stark: 36 percent of homes built in 2000 had under 1,800 square feet; in 2017, 22 percent did, according to the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies.

As for existing homes, resales of homes costing $100,000 to $250,000 were down 1.9 percent in October, compared with a year earlier, according to the National Association of Realtors®. The demand is there: Even with the decline, homes in that price range accounted for 40.2 percent of sales.

Faced with a shortage of affordable homes, it makes sense to consider buying and fixing up dwellings that are outdated or in need of repair.

The two major types of renovation loans are the FHA 203(k) loan, insured by the Federal Housing Administration, and the HomeStyle loan, guaranteed by Fannie Mae. Both cover most home improvements, whether major or minor.

“Basically, every kind of repair that can be done to a property, we do it,” says Brad McMullen, vice president of renovation lending for PrimeLending, a national mortgage lender that emphasizes renovation loans.

Renovation loans open more doors

Both FHA 203(k) and HomeStyle can be used for structural and cosmetic renovations. With both loan types, renovation work may begin immediately after closing.

FHA’s 203(k) loan is for primary residences only. It requires a minimum credit score of 500 with a down payment of at least 10 percent; a credit score of 580 or higher allows a down payment of 3.5 percent. These loans can’t be used for work that the FHA deems a luxury, such as installing a swimming pool.

There are two types of 203(k) loans: limited and standard. The limited is for renovations costing $35,000 or less that don’t require major structural work. The standard is for projects upwards of $35,000 or involving major structural work.

A 203(k) standard loan requires a HUD consultant, who helps the homeowner solicit and analyze bids and oversees inspections of the work. Consultants are often contractors, architects or inspectors, McMullen says. HUD has a tool to search for consultants.

Fannie Mae’s HomeStyle loan may be used to buy and fix up a primary residence, second home or investment property. It requires a minimum credit score of 620. Minimum down payment is 3 percent or 5 percent, depending on whether the home is owner-occupied and the borrower is a first-time homebuyer or has a low to moderate income.

HomeStyle loans have few restrictions on improvements, other than that they “should be permanently affixed to the real property (either dwelling or land),” according to Fannie Mae guidelines. That means HomeStyle may pay for adding a swimming pool.

Pitfalls to watch for

The most common problem is failing to get detailed cost estimates, McMullen says. To prevent cost overruns, make sure estimates are specific about materials, and include costs for inspections, permits and consultant fees (if applicable).

Another pitfall: over-improving the home. If every house on the block has one story and three bedrooms, it might be a bad idea to add a second story with two bedrooms. The home will no longer fit in with the neighborhood, and it will be difficult to get an accurate estimate of the home’s post-renovation value because of a lack of nearby comparable houses.

Getting started

After finding the house you want, choose a lender, decide on a loan type and hire a HUD consultant. Then, with the consultant’s guidance, get estimates from contractors. Your lender will need copies of the estimates.

The renovation work may begin immediately after you close the loan. When the improvements are complete, you’ll have your home the way you want it — sooner than you might have thought possible.

January 2019 Housing Numbers for Palm Beach County

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

A recent article in the South Florida Business Journal describes the current market in South Florida as slowing down. "In Palm Beach County, single family home sales slumped 23.3% to 1, 103 while the median sales price increased 4.6% to $340,000, according to the Realtors of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale. Cash deals fell 27%. Active listings grew 9%, so the supply of inventory increased to 5.6 months. That's a fairly balanced market." 


 

The way we see it, it is GOOD news if you price your home accordingly! Want to know how? Call or text me to schedule a valuation. 

2019 Colors of the Year

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

Each and every year, major paint companies declare their color of the year. If you’re thinking about a new coat of paint for your home as we get deeper into 2019, here are the colors of the year worth considering!

Blueprint by Behr

This is a versatile, but bold color choice for a variety of home painting projects. Here’s what Behr has to say about it, “An honest, approachable color that conjures up the blueprints builders rely on to bring architectural designs to life, Blueprint creates a space where you can build your own re-imagined life—where awareness of what we want to build for ourselves can transform into action.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Metropolitan by Benjamin Moore  

Metropolitan isn’t going to blow your socks off, but it is incredibly useful in a variety of situations, especially if you tend to be more of a fan of neutral tones. If you’re a really big fan of this tone, you’re in luck! Benjamin Moore created a whole commercial for it:

https://youtu.be/5YPXCrJ3YNI

 

 

Living Coral by Pantone

To hear Pantone describe it, Living Coral is “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” One of the louder colors in this list, Living Coral could make a nice accent in bathrooms, for example.

 

 

Night Watch by PPG Paints 

 

Inspired by nature (and maybe Game of Thrones,) Night Watch is a “rich, luxurious, and classic shade of green.” PPG suggests you use it as an accent wall inside and/or a splash of color on doors or shutters on the exterior of your home.


There you have it! 2019 seems to have brought us a good variety of colors of the year, from wild to neutral. Which color of the year is most likely to make its way into your home?

Considering Selling? Find out why NOW is the time!

by Dawn & Peter Balzano
If you are considering selling for any reason this year and are having second thoughts...think again. Did you know that Palm Beach County is the third largest growing county in Florida following Orlando and Fort Myers? According to a recent article in the Palm Beach Post, Palm Beach County is set to hit 1.5 million residents within the next year with a strong presence coming from the northeast sector of the US. The main reason for the migration from certain states has to do with the high taxes in states such as New York. 
 
As the graph below shows, Palm Beach County has had a steady and stable increase of closed sales with a sold median sales price for the past 5 years, with a decrease inventory year after year. 
What does that mean to you??? Whether you are down sizing or upsizing, call me, let's talk. Let me give you a free and accurate home valuation.  With my expertise in real estate in South Florida, I know I can help you get the most money for your home.

Coming Soon! Multi Use Community in Delray Beach

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

As our last blog indicated, there are several different cities in Palm Beach County considering unique multi use developments. One of the latest to be discussed is in Delray Beach. A handful of developers are considering the development of a multi-use community in the area consisting of 50 acres off of Congress Avenue. The area would include the building for the original headquarters for Office Depot building and two other buildings.

  According to Key International, one of the said     developers, l the idea would be that the     community would house 759 residences: 524     rental apartments within multiple buildings, 123   condos within a cluster of four story buildings,   112 townhomes, in addition to 70,000 square feet   of office space and 100,000 square feet of retail   space (that will include restaurants).

The project, which has yet to be named and confirmed will be discussed in the fall by the City of Delray. It is worth mentioning, as it means more revitalization to Delray Beach. 

If you are interested in looking for a home in Delray Beach, I welcome you to do a home search on my website or better yet call or text me at 561-441-5346 to set up a specific search for you.

 

 

New Construction in Boca Raton!

by Dawn & Peter Balzano
 For those of you looking for New Construction in Boca Raton-- GOOD NEWS, there is another project that has popped up recently. GL Homes announced the grand opening of Lotus in Boca Raton. It is located just east of Lyons Road and one block north of Clint Moore Road (south of Altantic Avenue).  
 
This is the latest single family,all ages community for GL Homes with residences currently starting at $580's.  As with all GL communities, residents will have access to community pools, a full fitness center with a state of the art clubhouse. 
 
      image.png

If you are interested in learning more about new construction in Palm Beach County, please let me know. I will be happy to give you additional information about other new construction areas.
 

You should never shop for new construction without a seasoned Realtor.  We can negotiate on your behalf, make sure you really understand the contract your signing and the additional closing costs the builder passes on to the purchaser. 

If ultimately you purchase a new construction, I will credit you back at closing 1% of my commission to offset closing cost expenses.  When you use a Realtor representing the builder, you could be at a disadvantage and you are just putting more money in the builder representatives pockets. 

 

Call or text me with any questions you may have regarding Palm Beach County Real Estate.

“Millennials Ruin Book Club” at the Mandel Public Library of WPB

New program is revamping traditional book club model to suit younger adults

 

 

 

According to recent headlines, millennials have either ruined or killed off a lot of things held dear by previous generations.  First breakfast cereal, the housing market, department stores, and even fabric softener, and now they are coming for the beloved book club!  “Millennials Ruin Book Club” is a new program being hosted by the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach that begins on Wednesday, January 16 at 6:30 PM at Subculture Coffee in downtown West Palm Beach.  

 

In this new book club, created by millennials for millennials there is no assigned book to read.  Not assigning reading is ideal for young working adults because they are busier than ever and might not have time to commit to reading a book a month, or want to read a book that doesn’t interest them.  With “Millennials Ruin Book Club”, participants can just share what they are reading or watching with like-minded individuals, and also get recommendations from other readers and librarians (the experts), thus enjoying the benefits of a traditional book club but in a more relaxed setting.  So, the book club is not really being ruined, just tailored to suit the desires and expectations of this audience, consequently making both the book club and the library relevant for millennials.

 

Why millennials?  According to Pew Research Center, millennials are the most likely generation of Americans to use public libraries, with 53% of millennials saying they used a library or bookmobile in the previous 12 months, as of fall 2016.  The Center identifies millennials as anyone born between 1981 and 1996, making them ages 22 to 37 in 2018.

Update: Lake Worth Lagoon Restoration Project of Tarpon Cove Islands

 

We wanted to share with our residents an update from PBC ERM about Tarpon Cove Islands. According to ERM, in partnership with the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND), the Lake Worth Lagoon restoration project of Tarpon Cove Islands will see the construction and completion of the first and second island beginning in February. Dredged material from the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) maintenance project will be reused to enhance Tarpon Cove Islands. FIND will begin dredging in February and is anticipated to complete dredging in April, placing all material at Tarpon Cove.

 

According to ERM, the placement of material to create these intertidal islands will be conducted from barge and transported directly to Tarpon Cove from the segment of the ICW being dredged. Due to FIND dredging activities, placement may occur 24 hours a day, seven days a week to accomplish the required maintenance of the ICW.

 

Benefits expected from the project, according to ERM: beneficial re-use of suitable lagoon substrate for the sustainability of Lake Worth Lagoon and a reduction in day-time bridge openings. For more information, please visit PBC ERM at http://discover.pbcgov.org/erm/Pages/default.aspx.

“Millennials Ruin Book Club” at the Mandel Public Library of WPB

New program is revamping traditional book club model to suit younger adults

 

 

 

According to recent headlines, millennials have either ruined or killed off a lot of things held dear by previous generations.  First breakfast cereal, the housing market, department stores, and even fabric softener, and now they are coming for the beloved book club!  “Millennials Ruin Book Club” is a new program being hosted by the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach that begins on Wednesday, January 16 at 6:30 PM at Subculture Coffee in downtown West Palm Beach.  

 

In this new book club, created by millennials for millennials there is no assigned book to read.  Not assigning reading is ideal for young working adults because they are busier than ever and might not have time to commit to reading a book a month, or want to read a book that doesn’t interest them.  With “Millennials Ruin Book Club”, participants can just share what they are reading or watching with like-minded individuals, and also get recommendations from other readers and librarians (the experts), thus enjoying the benefits of a traditional book club but in a more relaxed setting.  So, the book club is not really being ruined, just tailored to suit the desires and expectations of this audience, consequently making both the book club and the library relevant for millennials.

 

Why millennials?  According to Pew Research Center, millennials are the most likely generation of Americans to use public libraries, with 53% of millennials saying they used a library or bookmobile in the previous 12 months, as of fall 2016.  The Center identifies millennials as anyone born between 1981 and 1996, making them ages 22 to 37 in 2018.

Update:

City of WPB Homelessness Prevention Efforts

Vickers House South

 

Get the facts about the City's efforts to prevent homelessness! This fiscal year, the CIty has budgeted $4.25-million for homelessness prevention efforts, which include the operation of the two Vickers House locations which are one-stop service/outreach centers for the homeless and their families.

 

In the past three years, the CIty has invested significant additional resources to address homelessness. These resources offer a variety of services ranging from housting to support services and homeless prevention programs.

 

City efforts and programs have included:

  • Donating three duplexes and land for development of supportive housing for the homeless;
  • Funding a full-time peer homeless outreach team with a mental health component;
  • Operating the Vickers House which provides relocation assistance and many other services to the homeless;
  • Providing nearly $1.5 million dollars for the construction of two supportive housing projects targeted for the homeless that will produce 42 units of permanent housing;
  • Funding a Housing Stabilization Program that provides temporary rental assistance for those who are either homeless or in danger of becoming homeless;
  • Collaborating with the Homeless Coalition for the City-initiated Real Change Movement project (http://www.realchangemovementwpb.org)
  • Providing funding to Vita Nova to serve youths ages 18-24 who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless;
  • Working with our community partners including Lord’s Place, Gulfstream Goodwill, Adopt a Family, the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County, Palm Beach County Community Services, Palm Beach County Housing and Economic Sustainability, Downtown Development Authority, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County Housing Authorities and many others to develop strategies to reduce homelessness;
  • Homeward Bound, a program offering individuals who have been chronically homeless in our city the opportunity to reunite with their families back home;
  • Funding and supporting the Frequent Users System Engagement (FUSE) initiative and a pilot program in conjunction with the Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission and several other partner entities to provide housing and support service assistance to individuals exiting prison who have no housing options.

Currently, the City is working with the County and other partner agencies on additional strategies to reduce homelessness among veterans, the chronically homeless and other homeless populations.

Update: Lake Worth Lagoon Restoration Project of Tarpon Cove Islands

 

We wanted to share with our residents an update from PBC ERM about Tarpon Cove Islands. According to ERM, in partnership with the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND), the Lake Worth Lagoon restoration project of Tarpon Cove Islands will see the construction and completion of the first and second island beginning in February. Dredged material from the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) maintenance project will be reused to enhance Tarpon Cove Islands. FIND will begin dredging in February and is anticipated to complete dredging in April, placing all material at Tarpon Cove.

 

According to ERM, the placement of material to create these intertidal islands will be conducted from barge and transported directly to Tarpon Cove from the segment of the ICW being dredged. Due to FIND dredging activities, placement may occur 24 hours a day, seven days a week to accomplish the required maintenance of the ICW.

 

Benefits expected from the project, according to ERM: beneficial re-use of suitable lagoon substrate for the sustainability of Lake Worth Lagoon and a reduction in day-time bridge openings. For more information, please visit PBC ERM at http://discover.pbcgov.org/erm/Pages/default.aspx.

Real Estate Prices, in the South Florida Region

by Dawn & Peter Balzano

Real estate prices have stabilized. It's been some time, but prices have settled out and dug in for steady growth. You can see this fact nearly everywhere, historical price movements can be checked. It's a positive thing anywhere, but that's better than the opposite. So it's a good time now to find a home. If you combine that with a good environment like the south Florida sun and real estate, you have the makings of a very good market.

 

The infrastructure is already there. There's been a lot of growth, we're adding civil structures and services, but the main infrastructure for further development has already been built. It's a strong and growing community, particularly for over 55, with room for more. That might not be true of areas out in the boonies, they can hit or miss. You can also be hit with major civic improvement taxes, in newer regions. Palm Beach county structure, like Boca Raton, Delray, and Boynton Beach has mainly been built already though, and other infrastructure. So the certain growth and paid for costs are a double advantage... Read more

 

 

Here are some of the recent Pre & New Construction Homes in Palm Beach County to hit the market, with links to properties and custom search. These are some of the builder recently completed homes, in Palm Beach County. K. Hovnanian's in Casa Del Mar, Valencia Bay in Boynton Beach, FL, and West Palm Beach's Wildfire Way.

Valencia Bay has multiple properties recently finished, Crested Butte is a recent addition there, and priced right. Downtown Delray has some new entries, such as the lately built properties on Fifth Ave there. Rounding it out for this week's blog post, is Lemongrass Lane in Wellington, FL.
