daytona beach shores condos: Oceans Grand Condominium in Daytona Beach Shores. Market Snapshot - 08/25/14 08:52 AM
I haven’t written about Oceans Grand in a long time, and it is long overdue. So, let’s look at this condominium.
It is in Daytona Beach Shores, behind the new Publix, which is going to open the doors in couple of months after complete tear down and building a new one. Lighted tennis courts, semi-public golf course, all it makes a terrific place to be, and you even do not need a car to live or vacation here.
Anyway, this is one of the last tall buildings in Daytona Beach Shores, that has changed the ordinance and now you can’t build … (1 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Daytona Beach Shores. Summer And The Beach. - 08/20/12 07:08 AM
It is August, the hottest month in Daytona. Not that July is any cooler, and not that coming September is going to be any cooler, at least until the 30th of September… And no, I am not complaining. Looks like the majority of the country has or had much hotter time…  
Surprisingly, we experience what the lifeguard called “upwelling” and the water on Sunday was only 76F, cooler than what we had in May. By tis time we should be firmly in the 80s, but it is the Ocean and it is always full of surprises.  
241 condo units … (6 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: I Drive Less Than 100 Miles A Week - 05/06/12 09:41 AM
Guilty as charged. Yes, on average I drive less than 100 miles a week. I read Michael Thornton’s post (not so) Speechless Sundae ~ 5.6.12... and then I read comments and I thought that this was not my case. Michael wrote about his new 4-wheel toy – Chevy Volt, and mentioned that he drove 500 miles in one week. The comments are filled with more surprise (and envy) to this fact rather than phenomenal Chevy Volt’s fuel economy. Maybe it is a great car, but it is not for me, a condo dweller. I wouldn’t be able to charge it in … (13 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Muddy Crystal Ball - 05/04/12 10:51 PM
A local investor owns several units in Daytona Beach Shores. We know that he loves Salida Del Sol condo building, has a unit there.
Nice building, completed in 2006. Good location south of Dunlawton Ave on A1A. 43 three-bedroom units. Good size, breathtaking views.
We called him about a unit there in $200s. He laughed at us saying that there was another unit, that went to foreclosure, and the Lender got it back. He said he would wait till it pops back as REO and would buy it for $190K.

We doubt that it will be at $190K, as the … (6 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: A Chihuahua called Doberman Pinscher... or The Beauty of Condo Living - 03/24/12 11:45 AM
Time from time I am visiting condominium buildings In Daytona Beach Shores, talking to the managers, getting updates so that I know my stuff. One of the standard questions is about pet policy.
Some condos have «No pets» policy even when you have a cat, or a bird, which do not require going out. They say birds can be noisy. Hmm, what about cats? Haven't seen a barking or screeching cat yet.... I guess if one hears the cat screaming, they better call the animal police, as it should be the case of abuse... But a policy is a policy.
Some are more … (55 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Quiet "Winter" Morning on the Intracoastal in Daytona Beach Shores - 01/26/12 06:20 PM
Quiet "Winter" morning on the Intracoastal in Daytona Beach Shores
We are getting just days away from February, but the temperature is more like in March, and in the last week even the water in the ocean went up from 66F to 68F. It is really comfortably warm, and in the car you need AC. It was 76F on the beach at 6 PM. Absolutely not bad.
Of course, we have another month – February – which is considered second coldest month, and the weather can change practically instantly, so the winter is not over yet, but there isn’t much … (6 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Unit 801 in Oceans Five for Sale in Daytona Beach Shores - 01/21/12 11:26 PM
Unit 801 in Oceans Five for Sale in Daytona Beach Shores
Who can believe that we got to the time when in a whole 21-story building with 112 units there will be only 2 units for sale? This is less than 2%, while in “normal” real estate market this figure is around 7%.
And while pundits are talking about prices still going down in real estate market in Florida, reality does not cooperate with pundits, at least in regard to the sale of condos on our local level.
There were 8 units sold in 2011. Not a huge number, but it … (1 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Oceans Five Condo in Daytona Beach Shores - 10/23/11 11:53 PM
My client bought a unit in Oceans Five in Daytona Beach Shores 2 years ago. He bought it for a good price, unit needed some updating, and Jim, a builder himself, did a good job. He was renting it short terms, and, like it is usually in Daytona Beach area, it is challenging.

Maybe things changed for Jim, but he called me the other day and said he would like to sell his unit. So, let us see what is happening in Oceans Five in Daytona Beach Shores...
There are 3 active for sale units in Oceans Five:

daytona beach shores condos: Perfect Evening in Daytona Beach Shores - 10/01/11 02:22 PM
Perfect evening in Daytona Beach Shores. Air temperature – 83F, water temperature – 83F.  It all changes tomorrow as the first cold front is coming and for the first time in several months night temperature will fall below 70F. They say that on Saturday we will not go higher than 78F, and after high 80s and low 90s for months, it will feel like winter (don't laugh at me, it is all relative...)
But today I am enjoying this warm temperature. The water is so perfect, that I did not want to get out of the Ocean. This is the beauty … (8 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Living in Daytona Beach Shores. Living by the ocean. - 09/06/11 12:15 AM
Daytona area has 23 miles of the Beach.
The longest shoreline is in Daytona Beach Shores. Being so much smaller than its neighbor Daytona Beach, Daytona Beach Shores “picked” the best place on the beachside. It is bordered by the ocean  on the east and Halifax River on the west and is sandwiched between Daytona Beach to the north and Wilbur-by-the-Sea and Ponce Inlet to the South.

Our office is in Daytona Beach, in the oceanfront condo-hotel. And I live in Daytona beach Shhores. I try to walk home from my office as often as I can, and I enjoy walking barefoot … (13 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Me And Trump... Or Trump And Me? - 08/26/11 11:09 PM
How «High» is High Rise?
Did you ever ask yourself this question? How high is high rise? Is there a definition of a high rise? I googled, and the king of answering every stupid question out there choked on this one. You can read about tower block, vertical construction and all this, but I could not find a definition of how high is a high rise.
But today I found the answer, thanks for Florida Statutes. There, in Chapter 718.112 (I) (Condominium Law) I ran into this « ...a high rise building, meaning one greater than 75 feet in height.» So, now … (18 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Does Staging Really Work? - 07/25/11 08:17 PM
Lenn Harley posted WAS STAGING REALLY THE CAUSE OF A HOME SELLING FASTER AND/OR FOR MORE MONEY??? Inquiring REALTORS want to know??? Her blogs are always a good read, so I suggest you read. I am sure that Lenn is right in general. Lenn was inspired by Karen Bernetti, and I was inspired by Lenn’s post.

daytona beach shores condos: The Beach... I Mean Daytona Beach - 07/20/11 02:23 AM
It is mid July in Daytona, summer in full swing, hot and humid everywhere, except right on the Beach. The ocean breeze brings cooler air and makes walking on the beach a pleasure.
I am on the beach each evening except when it is raining. You can't get tired of this view. It is always different, and it changes every minute. The sun, the clouds, the waves... they all affect how the ocean looks and there are more combinations up the nature's sleeve than chances in winning a jackpot in Powerball.
I bring my heavy Canon 5D Mark II, but leave it … (26 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Do You Really Need To Know? - 07/13/11 10:41 AM
I posted Active...Passive...Smart? It is about an agent, who is not really familiar with the area and they type of properties (beachside condos), but who calls Listing agents and asks them about the view from the unit.
One of the comments stated that in the era of Internet and all that information there, this information is readily available. Again, it is the  question of how good of  an agent Internet is. Can it really replace experience? Can it even give us the knowledge that we seek?
I do not work 75 mile, I do not work even 7.5 miles. Hardly half … (7 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Evening in Daytona Beach Shores on the Eve of 4th of July - 07/03/11 02:09 AM
My best shots are those that I have no taken. When I do not have my camera with me, that's when the best photo ops are happening. Yesterday it looked gloomy, but there was no rain, and I figured that there was no reason to take a camera with me.
My nearly 11-yo grandson is with us this week. We took a short drive to the closest park a half mile from us, and when I got out of a car, I saw that the ocean was just beautiful. The water was the color of steel and there was no horizon, … (16 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: After the Rain. Rainbow - 06/26/11 11:58 PM
It was getting dark in the middle of this Sunday... Clouds were getting heavier and rain was just minutes away.
I was to meet a client at the airport and take him to see the condo unit in Oceans Six in Daytona beach Shores, that he bought, but has not yet seen.

Of course, I wanted him to like it, and I hoped the rain will be over by the time we get to the unit.
It worked perfectly. the sun came out, and made everything so nice. Looking at this photo it is hard to believe that only … (26 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Evening After Thunderstorm in Daytona Beach Shores - 05/28/11 03:39 PM
The blunt of the thunderstorm was across the  Intracoastal, but you could see the lightning and still hear the sound of thunder...
I was working at my computer watching the retention pond filling up with water turning it into what we call «seasonal waterfront". I did not notice when the rain stopped, and then suddenly saw the clouds lit with sunlight. It was such a metamorphose...
I rushed to the roof with my camera, as I have been waiting for this moment for some time. The ocean was dark. The sky over the Intracoastal was dark, but the sun was making … (9 comments)

daytona beach shores condos: Evenings in Daytona Beach Shores - 05/17/11 03:07 AM
Evenings in Daytona Beach Shores sometimes display such an array of colors, that you can only stop in awe and watch. Setting sun splits the sky and paints it gradually from ink to turquoise, clouds catch the light of the sinking sun and you have them from gray-blue to pink...

And it keeps changing every minute... You are just staying and watching it...
My new camera gets rightfully frustrated with me, that I still can't figure many things out. I am getting excited and just take pictures and not really checking how they come. So then at home I am deleting, … (24 comments)
