Carnaval and Calle Ocho Festival 2015

February 27th, 2015

Carnaval & Calle Ocho Festival 2015

Carnaval is more than just a single weekend festival at the Calle Ocho Festival. It’s a series of cultural events which also includes a sister festival held on Coral Gables’ Miracle Mile that focuses on Latin Jazz (Carnaval on the Mile), a beauty pageant to crown Miss Carnaval, a Cooking  Contest, 10 K run, Golf Classic, soccer tournament and domino tournament. It all takes place between mid-February to mid-March when the weather is perfect for street parties in Miami’s warm winter.

Calle Ocho Festival in Miami

For more than 35 years crowds have been flocking to the main street of Little Havana, Calle Ocho and celebrating Carnaval Miami, a Latin street festival. The street is positively brimming with energy as the sights, sounds and smells of Miami’s Hispanic community line the streets with non-stop music, food and activities and come together with an explosion of culture.

Carnaval Miami is made possible by the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana. The Kiwanis Club was started in 1975 and has grown into a major service organization in Miami that reaches the lives of many under served children each year. Carnaval is a party for a good cause! Some of their recent initiatives include granting internet access to families in need and expanding educational programming.

Carnaval On The Mile

Carnaval On The Mile is a street festival that takes up the entire length of Downtown Coral Gables’ busiest street, Miracle Mile, for a full weekend. There are stages set up and Latin Jazz, Funk, Caribbean rhythms and more bounce through the air. Local performers and internationally famous musicians take the stage to dancing crowds filled with everyone from families to veterans of the party scene.

The event is free, and there is plenty of extra fun to indulge in, including dozens of food stands and artisanal vendors. The event takes place every year on the weekend before the main event, the Calle Ocho Festival.

Carnaval On The Mile is a family friendly ambiance, and is mostly local Coral Gables residents and their families who are regulars at the surrounding mom-and-pop cafes and restaurants, boutiques and book stores. Local restaurants set up shop in booths along the streets and you can get a taste of local favorites from high-end restaurants to Cuban ice cream. Bacardi and Heineken have a presence and it’s all in all a great time for all ages.

Enjoy the beats of the conga, the sounds of Miami’s Caribbean Jazz scene and traditional sounds of Jazz from the likes of world famous saxophone players.

Carnaval On The Mile is widely thought of as a tamer, more family friendly version of the wild party that goes on annually at Calle Ocho Miami, the next weekend.

Calle Ocho Festival in Miami

The Calle Ocho Festival, or Eighth Street Festival, is a yearly tradition that brings together people who want to celebrate Miami’s colorful Latin culture on the streets of Little Havana. The festival is the largest street festival in Miami and takes place along 8th Street from 8th Avenue to SW 27th Avenue.  Couples dance salsa on the street, performers and musicians give back to the community with their talents while rocking the 12 stages set up on the streets which are closed down for the event. Miami’s Latin community comes out loud and proud, waving flags of their country’s and wearing other patriotic garb. Listen to the beats of merengue, reggeaton, bachata, balada, hip hop, rap, jazz and more all in one day!

Like any good street fair, one of the main attractions is the food. Get a taste of the cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean and taste delicacies and home cooked specialties. There are demonstrations of traditional dance and stands selling folkloric artwork throughout the festival.

Home Prices Rose 5.8% in 2014

February 23rd, 2015

 

Home Prices Rose 5.8% in 2014

Home Prices Rose 5.8% in 2014

By:Dona DeZube

As 2014 drew to a close, median home prices rose to their highest level since 2007 and home sales picked up.

For 2014, the national median existing home price hit its highest level since 2007: $208,500. The median price also represents a 5.8% increase from 2013 ($197,100), data from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® show.

Meanwhile, the number of home sales for the year declined 3.1%. But despite low levels of properties for sale in many markets, the number of single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops that sold in December 2014 rose 2.4% from November and were up 3.5% compared with December 2013.

Home Supply Tightens in December

At the end of December, there were 1.85 million existing homes available for sale, which would take 4.4 months to sell at the current rate homes are selling. In November 2014, there was a 5.1-month supply of homes for sale. A 6-month supply is considered a balanced market that favors neither homesellers nor homebuyers.

First-Time Buyers Challenged?

The lack of homes for sale could cause problems for first-time buyers struggling to afford homes, says NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “A minimal selection and the potential for faster price appreciation could offset the demand from buyers encouraged by a stronger economy and sub-4% interest rates,” says Yun. “Housing costs — both rents and home prices — continue to outpace wages and are burdensome for potential buyers trying to save for a downpayment while looking for available homes in their price range.”

The percentage share of first-time buyers dropped to 29% in December, down from 31% in November, but up from a year ago (27%).

Still, the outlook for first-time homebuyers is encouraging. A reduction in FHA mortgage insurance premiums that goes into effect Jan. 26, 2015, will help make homebuying more affordable for first-timers, says NAR President Chris Polychron. “The move to lower premiums will enable more buyers to enter the market while continuing to protect taxpayers from the risky lending practices that led to the housing crash,” he says.

Investors Buying Homes

Investors continued to play an active role in the housing market. All-cash sales were 26% of transactions in December, up from 25% in November and 32% in December of last year. Individual investors, who account for many cash sales, purchased 17% of homes in December, up from last month (15%), but down from December 2013 (21%).

Foreclosures Down Since 2013

December distressed sales — foreclosures and short sales — were down to 11% from 14% a year ago, but were up from November (9%). Eight percent of December sales were foreclosures and 3% were short sales. Foreclosures sold for an average discount of 15% below market value in December (17% in November), while short sales were discounted 12% (13% in November).

Do You Need Hurricane Insurance ?

February 18th, 2015

Hurricane Insurance

Do You Need Hurricane Insurance?

By:Gwen Moran

 

You have to investigate your policy details and how they relate to your location before making a decision on hurricane insurance.

If you live in an area subject to hurricanes, you should weigh your need for hurricane insurance. Your decision, and the costs you have to pay, will be based on several factors, such as where you live, what your house is worth, and how high a deductible you’re willing to pay.

Check Your Current Insurance

Do you even need hurricane insurance? Details vary by policy and by state, and there’s a thin line between what your standard home owners policy covers and what you might need hurricane insurance for.

  • Check your policy for any limitations on wind and water damage. Your home owners insurance may cover damage from wind and wind-driven rain.

  • Make sure your home owners policy doesn’t exclude hurricane-related damages altogether. This is especially likely in hurricane-prone states like Florida, Texas, and Louisiana, where insurers may require supplemental hurricane insurance or separate windstorm and flood policies.

  • Check exclusions even if you do have hurricane insurance: your policy may exclude damage from floods caused by rising water, no matter the source. In that case, you will need separate flood insurance.

The Cost of Hurricane Insurance?

The cost of comprehensive hurricane insurance can vary wildly:

  • $300 for a modest house in a low-risk area.

  • $20,000 or more for a luxury home in a high-risk zone.

    hurricane insurance 

You can save money by buying through a high-risk insurance pool that offers hurricane insurance, typically available in hurricane-prone areas. Check with your state insurance commissioner.

On top of the premium, policies in states susceptible to storms can come with hurricane deductibles, which typically range from 1%-5% of the insured value of a home. A standard deductible, say $500, would apply to claims that aren’t hurricane-related.

Hurricane insurance deductibles usually kick in when damage results from a named storm. That means if your house is insured for $200,000, and it’s damaged in a hurricane, then the hurricane deductible will range between $2,000 (1% of insured value) and $10,000 (5%). Some states allow home owners to choose the hurricane deductible — the higher the deductible, the lower the premium — while others set deductible levels.

Ways to Lower Your Hurricane Insurance Costs

The following changes may reduce your hurricane insurance costs:

  • Storm shutters

  • Wind-resistant roofing

  • Hurricane straps, clips, and anchor belts

  • Garage door braces

  • Secondary water protection — essentially an extra layer of waterproofing between shingles and the roof sheathing

In Florida’s Miami-Dade County, for example, the annual premium for hurricane insurance on an older home insured for $150,000 runs between $3,000-$8,000, assuming no mitigation improvements and a 2% hurricane deductible. With mitigation improvements, the same home would cost $1,000-$3,500 to insure.

Three Steps to Secure Your Refi (Refinancing)

January 30th, 2015

Three Steps to Secure Your Refi

MoneyTips.com

Three Steps to Secure Your refinance

 

Refinancing your home can be a difficult task under any conditions, but with a low appraisal value, it is especially challenging. The recent housing crisis left many homeowners in this position – the overall drop in home values produced loan-to-value (LTV) ratios that were unacceptably high to banks, putting refinancing out of reach.

Even without a housing crisis, appraisals can come in at surprisingly low values that are below your expectations. Appraisers are human, and they can make mistakes or use incomplete information.

If you have a low appraisal value that makes refinancing difficult, what can you do about it? You do have a few options to consider.

  • Challenge the Appraisal –If you have reason to believe the appraisal is in error, you can challenge it. However, you need to have a valid reason – blindly questioning the appraiser’s results or competence is not going to get you anywhere.

Read the appraisal carefully. If there is an error by the appraiser, it is most likely in using poor comps (houses that are used for value comparisons). You probably know just as much as the appraiser about the value of homes in your area. Use this knowledge for your benefit.

Were any comps undervalued because of a foreclosure or a short sale? Is your home unique enough that comps were pulled from different neighborhoods with different baseline property values? Did a comparable home sell directly without being listed? Are the comparable sales prices out of date?

If you have made any additions or renovations to your home, make sure those were included in the appraisal.

You can also consider getting a second appraisal on your own, but you need to be relatively sure the value will change. Again, it is important to have a solid reason for increasing the value.

  • Check Government Programs –There are multiple government programs available to help with refinancing, especially for lower-income homeowners. The best-known are the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). HARP is for those who are making payments but are struggling to keep up; HAMP is for those who have missed payments and are nearing foreclosure.

There are several other FHA-, VA-, and military-based programs that can assist with refinancing depending on your status and qualifications. Check www.makinghomeaffordable.gov for more details on all of your options.

  • Consider Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) –PMI is generally required on home purchases where the down payment is less than 20%. Since the risk of default is higher with less initial equity from the homeowner, PMI compensates the lender for the higher risk involved.

You can offer to pay PMI if you can absorb those extra costs and still come out ahead on your refinancing. Typical costs are between 0.5%-1.0% annually on the total loan amount. This could easily amount to well over $100 per month for the average home and a homeowner with relatively low equity in the home.

You may consider asking for PMI terms that will lapse or decrease over a certain number of years, once the lender is assured that you are capable of paying back the loan.

There is a fourth, less pleasant option – wait until your property regains enough value for you to refinance. It would be helpful if this occurs before interest rates begin to rise again, but if not, you will just have to make the best of a bad situation. Keep a constant watch on overall housing values, interest rates, and special refinancing programs for the best refinancing opportunity for your position.

Buying a Home in 2015: 3 Resolutions to Make It Happen

January 28th, 2015

Buying a Home in 2015: 3 Resolutions to Make It Happen

Buying a Home in 2015: 3 Resolutions to Make It Happen

By Brendon DeSimone

 

Many home buyers enter and leave the real estate market several times before making a purchase. Priorities shift and — unlike a seller who signs an agreement and has a tangible product to sell — buyers aren’t necessarily tied to any timeframe, unless it’s self-imposed.

With the start of a new year, many on-and-off home shoppers resolve to intensify their search and finally purchase a home. Whether it’s because of a better-understood tax benefit, the realization of a big bonus or simply a frustrating rental situation,many buyers re-enter the market and get serious. Here are some resolutions for buyers who want to make 2015 the year of their new home.

Enlist an ally

Many buyers spend time in the dreaming phase of home shopping— looking at listings online, researching the mortgage process,running numbers and following the local market. But serious and active buyers hook up with a strong local agent to make it happen.

Agents can serve as a guiding light thanks to the wealth of market knowledge they bring to the table. A good local agent has completed dozens of transactions and understands the process and the market — not to mention the home buying process — like the back of their hand. If things go sideways, they will steer you in the right direction. Leverage their experience.

Buying a Home in 2015: 3 Resolutions to Make It HappenBalance feelings and data

There is so much (sometimes conflicting) real estate information available that it is easy to get overwhelmed. A home purchase is not the same as picking out a new tablet, smartphone or even a used car. Aside from the huge financial commitment of a home purchase, there are emotional and practical implications that may be less obvious.

You may walk through a designer kitchen and imagine your family having dinner there, or see a particular block and suddenly feel that you belong there. No spreadsheet or equation will account for those feelings, wishes or desires.

Trying to reconcile these feelings while analyzing potentially conflicting statistics, online data, blogs or forums will be a challenge. If you have a reliable local agent and have been looking for some time, you can feel confident in your market knowledge, while also trusting your instincts.

Abandon the notion of getting a deal

Everyone likes to get a great bargain. But in real estate, deals aren’t always easy to come by. Dozens of fragmented sellers — unaffected by inventory levels and with different motivations for selling — drive each market.

If you are continuously on the hunt for a “deal,” this could be a red flag that you are not ready to buy. If you need to purchase a car, you likely research car prices online before heading to the dealership. You understand that the values range, and attempt to get your car as close to the lower end of the range as possible. If not, you won’t be buying a car.

Will you wait another year to see where prices are? Probably not. Instead, you make a car purchase based on the best deal you can negotiate at that time.

The same goes with home buying. Buyers who spend considerable time learning the market will have experiential knowledge of what they can get for their money and where. They have a realistic view of the market.

Making a low-ball offer may be understandable when you first enter the market. You could be uninformed or nervous, and putting in a low offer is a way to test the waters. But if you’re continually making unrealistic offers, you need to ask yourself if you are ready to be a home buyer. Your low-ball offers may be your way of sabotaging your home buying prospects.

Every buyer is different, and real estate purchases are one part financial, one part emotional and one part practical. The road to buying a home is not a straight and narrow path, like buying a car. If you truly want to buy a home in 2015, dedicate yourself to the effort, and set yourself up for success.
