Join Will Mason and myself, Jay Heidel, as we discuss The Freedom Boat Club as an option to owning a boat yourself. This seems like it could be a great option for some people, especially condo owners who do not usually have a place to keep a boat except to pay for a marina.
For those of you who don't like to watch the whole video, below is an overview of how Freedom Boat Club works.
A Freedom Boating Plan Includes...
Seasonal memberships are also available.
Freedom 2 (2 Active Rolling Reservations)
Great for members that boat primarily on weekdays such as retirees
Freedom 4 (4 Active Rolling Reservations)
Our most popular plan for weekday and weekend users
Freedom 6 (6 Active Rolling Reservations)
Our Luxury Plan allows for more reservations
Seasonal Membership: (Great for Snow Birds)
Pick one of the plans above that best fits your needs and just pay for the months that you'd like to boat!
Choose 6 or 9 month seasons. Ability to change your plan at any time at no cost.
If you are considering reserving a unit at the new 35 story building going up at 3rd St and 1st Avenue S, your time is almost here! At least the time to reserve it is...
The building is slated for completion in 2022 so you will need some patience but the payoff could be nice. Investors who purchased at ONE ended up walking away with 6 figure profits. While nothing is ever guaranteed, there is no reason not to expect similar results here.
"The tower will be around 35 stories with a typical floor having seven residences per floor ranging in size from approx. 1600 SF to approx. 2700 SF in 2 and 3 bedroom plans. There will be four Penthouse series residences averaging 6000 SF offering a 4 bedroom layout. There will also be 2 bedroom "loft style" residences (approx. 2000 SF) on the lower floors facing toward the bay. The resort style pool, fitness, and club room will be positioned on level 7 and will have direct views east toward the bay. Each residence will have two private parking spaces and the building will have 24/7 valet.
The general timeframe will have reservations beginning in 2nd quarter of this year. Expect those reservations to be converted to contract in 3rd quarter 2019 with ground breaking beginning in the 4th quarter of 2019. Projected completion 2022."
Please note that all information is subject to change as this is still in the early stages
The Mirror is going to be a mixed use 5 story building with office space and businesses on the first and second floors
There will be 5 condo units on each of the top 3 floors, for a total of only 15 units.
Sizes will range from 998sf to 1276sf
No major amenities, this means low HOA fees!
Prices will be in the $300's and $400's making these probably the most affordable new construction condos in DTSP!

Do you know what an “as is” contract actually indicates? Today I will explain the truth about this arrangement.
Despite the name, an “as is” contract does not truly mean you are purchasing a home as is. If this was the case, the 12-page contract would simply be a one-page bill of sale.
In fact, you will notice that “as is” is written at the top of the contract in quotation marks. This would be the equivalent of me saying my friend Dave is a “smart guy.”
With that said, an “as is” contract indicates that the home will be sold as is, subject to inspections. The inspection allows buyers to walk away and cancel the contract if issues are found. Or, if they would rather not cancel the contract, they can also renegotiate. So, ultimately, an “as is” contract is not a “take it or leave it” contract.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Current market conditions are favorable for certain buyers and sellers. Here are the latest details.
The real estate market remains red-hot. In fact, Zillow estimates that homes sold more quickly in 2017 than ever before. And 2018 seems on pace to beat 2017. However, one segment of the real estate market seems to be lagging.
I’m talking about luxury homes.
Prices in the top 5% of the real estate market increased just 5.1% in 2017, almost 2% lower than the rest of the market. What's going on?
Affordability does not seem to be an issue: more Americans can afford a top-level home than ever before. Instead, it might come down to two other factors.
First, uncertainty surrounding the new tax bill could be affecting luxury homes more strongly, and this might be the reason why some potential buyers are choosing to sit and wait until the details of the tax plan become more clear. Second, there is simply a greater supply of luxury homes compared to other types of homes.
In other words, demand and supply are more evenly matched at the top of the market, while in other segments, demand far outstrips supply.
If you've been thinking about trading up to a luxury home, now might be the perfect time to do so. The red-hot demand for starter and trade-up homes means you could sell your home for top dollar and at record speed. The limited price growth and greater inventory at the luxury end mean you could have your pick, and find a special, unique, and customized home that perfectly suits your preferences.

Which kinds of renovations should you do before selling your home? Here are a few easy suggestions.
Today, I want to take a minute to talk to you about the renovations you should do before you put your home on the market.
The typical line of thought is that kitchens and bathrooms are the best way to go. However, Remodeling Magazine recently released a report in which they broke down the return after doing an improvement on a home and putting it on the market one year later.
The numbers weren’t pretty; surprisingly, nothing really made a profit. Even with kitchens and bathrooms, the return is in the 90-percentile range. You’re not getting a full return for the money you spent. On some projects, you’re only getting 50% back.
Before you go and spend a lot of money on remodeling focus on the the things that are easy, quick and can get you a high return. This includes:
