fountain beach resort: Daytona Condo-Hotel - Fountain Beach Resort - 11/02/14 08:26 PM
October is over and it is a good time to look at some numbers.
Fountain Beach Resort at 313 S Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach is a 148-room Daytona condo-hotel located in the heart of Daytona’s beachside, second building south from the intersection with the International Speedway Blvd.

Not the fanciest condo-hotel, but compared to other Daytona condo-hotels is in the middle of the list. Since the economy improved and there are more tourists in town, they are steadily in the black, even though their marketing effort is quite limited. This is primarily due to its envious location.

fountain beach resort: Daytona Beach. Fountain Beach Resort. September 2012 - 09/18/12 06:14 AM
Time to visit Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach. Looks like Fountain Beach Resort is more in line with a normal market tan many other condo-hotels and condos in the area. For a 148-room resort 11 units available for sale per our local MLS is a healthy number. Since August 15 to today there were 3 units sold. This is a darn good number, and actually, it is higher than average number of units sold in one month in the Fountain Beach Resort Many other condo-hotels and condos have much lower inventory percentage-wise. Why at the same time properties, which are … (2 comments)

fountain beach resort: Frequently Asked Question: What if I Buy A Condo-Hotel? - 05/29/12 09:19 AM
What if I Buy A Condo-Hotel?
This is frequently asked question. While buyers have the general understanding of things when they are buying a condo, the hotel part confuses people a lot. These questions are real questins asked by real people. The questions below came today in two e-mails about oceanfront Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach, a 149-room hotel converted to condo-hotel in 1998-1999.



 
- I see there is a maintenance fee of $350, but is that monthly?
Yes, this is monthly. And $350 a month for a condo-hotel unit is about average. Maintenance fee varies from … (30 comments)

Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach. January 2012
It is Bikeweek in Daytona, which means that we can't show any condo-hotel units. Every hotel is booked.

Many people think that hundreds of thousand bikers is great time to sell real estate, but it is the opposite. Last year we took a vacation. It is a paradox. We have half a million bikers crowd, and it is our slow time. 
But it is a fun time. This year they started later, two weeks later than they used to, and the rythm is broken. We have spring breakers and we have bikers at the … (0 comments)

Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach. January 2012
2012 started and we already forgot all the holidays, and the feeling of it as new and fresh.
We are firmly in 2012....

Time to look back and see how things were back in 2011, and what lies ahead.
Fountain Beach Resort is a Daytona Beach condo-hotel. Older hotel built in 1973, converted to condo-hotel in 1998-1999. 149 room resort is not the most elegant and not the nicest, but its central location and Tiki Bar on site is attracting guests...
Units are either studios (343 sq. ft.) with 48 sq. ft. balcony, … (3 comments)

fountain beach resort: Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach. November Market Snapshot - 11/21/11 12:12 AM
Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach is a condo-hotel. Built in 1973 and converted to condo-hotel in 1998-1999, this 149-room direct oceanfront condo-hotel is enviably located within waling distance from Main Street and all entertainment and dining in this area.

This and it’s own bar attracts event goers.
Converted on a shoestring budget, it is not a high end condo-hotel, so if you are looking for a la Trump Towers, this is not it. I do not know how many stars, if any, it has, but many bikers and racers feel here at home.

So, what does this home offer? 113 … (5 comments)

fountain beach resort: Life Is A Journey - 11/20/11 09:50 PM
Friday was just a regular day, but when the door opened and I saw the guest coming in, it was a surprise.
It was Mister A, the guy who owned Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach, and who converted it to a condo-hotel in 1998-1999.
Mister A (he is younger than me, but this is how his employees called him) came to US from Africa on investor visa, investing $1 Mil in two oceanfront rundown hotels side by side in the heart of Daytona Beach. Fountain Beach Resort, and Paradise Inn.
Money was tight, business was very slow, and he … (6 comments)

fountain beach resort: Foreclosure Blues...New Tunes - 03/26/11 12:17 PM
I have not been to the county foreclosure auction for some time, and today there was a very average condo-hotel unit in Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona Beach, and, knowing that nobody ever wanted to deal with condo-hotel units before, and the judgment was under $10K, we thought that we could get our client a bargain.
There was no mortgage; the foreclosure was brought by the Association. Of course, we checked and noticed that there were two years of taxes unpaid (about $1,500 total), and also, that the calculation for  the judgment was done in November, so Association fees plus legal … (4 comments)

fountain beach resort: Fountain Beach Resort in Daytona. Are Condo Owners Crazy? - 06/14/10 01:10 AM
People walk into our office and ask for the list of condo units in the Fountain Beach Resort, a Daytona Beach popular condo-hotel. We print it for them. 9 units for sale in Fountain Beach Resort from $35K to $75K.
- Are they different in size?
- No. Same 385 sq ft inside.
- Is the owner selling for $75K crazy?
- No, the owners of the units for $35K are crazy (in distress), but they can’t do anything, and the owner of the unit for $75K is not crazy… he can wait, and he will get his money, and, … (2 comments)

fountain beach resort: Fountain Beach Resort - Daytona Condo-Hotel - 03/01/10 11:32 PM
Fountain Beach Resort in 2010. Daytona Beach.The resort started 2010 with a surprise twist, when the Condominium Association Manager, who also  wore the hat of a General Manager, was let go without much ado. Why? We most probably would never know.
The old company packed their stuff and vacated the office that they used as their headquarters for a couple of years and left. The rumor has it that they were tired of the duties of General Manager, as they actually do not really now the hotel business, this was not their forte, so they wanted to relinquish those duties and … (3 comments)

fountain beach resort: Beyond Belief Denial. Losing Condo-Hotel Units in Daytona Beach to Foreclosure... for Pennies - 07/26/09 03:52 PM
Sometime the real life stories beat any and every imagination.
The owner of 3 units in the  Fountain Beach Resort, a condo-hotel in Daytona Beach, was not paying Assocaition fees for quite some time. I thought he would sell his units, but he is a wheeler-dealer and always bought and sold himself, so I was sure he would do the same thing this time.  He would come to our office (and we are in this building), ask us about the market, what the units were going for, and then shake hands and walk away.
I can't say that the guy does not … (2 comments)

Fountain Beach Resort313 S Atlatic Ave., Daytona Beach. FL 32118
2009 turns to be a very uneventful year fro the Fountain Beach Resort so far. 2 sales at $30K (foreclosure sale) and $50K. There were 3 sales in the whole 2008, so it is not bad in comparison. Or we can say it is as dead as last year. All activity is in the Plaza Resort. Prices are similar and were even better, but you can't compare the properties.
We do not have the financials (as this would constitute the sale of securities), but as far as we know, the owners … (0 comments)

fountain beach resort: Fountain Beach Resort. - 04/04/09 09:49 PM
It is April already. Time to check on the Fountain Beach Resort - a condo-hotel in the heart of Daytona Beachside.
This oceanfront 6-story condo-hotel is home to 149-room resort right on the Atlantic Ocean. Not much changed in the time that I wrote about it last. The Board made some new rules making life of the condo owners a notch more complicated, which is why the Boards are there, or that is what the owners believe.
Sales pretty much died in the Fountain Beach Resort. They got one foreclosure listed at $34,900. Yes you got it right, $34,900. The most expensive similar unit in the … (2 comments)
