Boil water alert around Stone and Pennsylvania in DeLand

September 19th, 2010 by admin

On Saturday a car driving north on Stone ran off the road taking out the fire hydrant at the corner of Stone and Pennsylvania before plowing through one of my neighbor’s fences and into their backyard tree.  According to the neighbor the driver and passenger were not seriously hurt.

There are now boil water alert signs posted throughout the neighborhood.  You can also see the sidewalk collapsed and the huge hole created from the fire hydrant flooding the street.

Bill Dreggors Park in DeLand is a great place to play and exercise.

September 6th, 2010 by admin

You can drive by Bill Dreggors Park morning, noon or night and you will witness people walking and running on the concrete walking path that circles the park.

I have spent many an evening walking around this park and calculate the distance  to be ½ mile +/-.

It is a great way for area residents to exercise without having to join a local gym.

The Park is named after a local historian and is located just north of New York at the corner of Stone and Wisconsin Streets.

The park offers many other features for young and old including a butterfly park, shelter houses and a childrens playground area.

There are also several Park and Recreational buildings at the Park.  It is at one of these buildings where local residents go to cast their votes during election season.

The Bill Dreggors Park is just one of many reasons why those who live in DeLand, love and treasure it so.

Low mortgage rates could be good news for DeLand home buyers.

August 15th, 2010 by admin

Freddie Mac has announced  mortgage rates hitting under 5% this past week.   Low mortgage rates could be good news for DeLand home buyers when coupled with low home prices created by short sale and bank owned inventory currently for sale.

With nearly 700 homes for sale in and around DeLand, home buyers should have no trouble finding the right home and the best price.

Give me a call to discuss a mortgage program suitable for you and to schedule a time to view available homes in the DeLand area.

Home sales increased in May over the same time period last year in DeLand.  The MLS reports 70 homes selling during May, 2010 compared to 48 in May, 2009.  This is good news for the DeLand real estate market and is no doubt a result of low list prices, low interest rates and the home buyer tax credit that ended on April 30th.
