Zillow is trying out a new service here in Orlando. They are testing an instant offer option for sellers who may want to sell their home to investor groups, without putting their home on the open market. Read what I have to say about this new service in this article by Mary Shanklin in the Orlando Sentinel.

When the movie 99 Homes opened in Orlando on Thursday, guess who Orlando Sentinel Real Estate Reporter Mary Shanklin asked to attend, so she could get his thoughts?

The plot is a far fetched crime drama, but many of the aspects of foreclosure and eviction do ring true.

I was quoted in the Orlando Sentinel again today. Check out this article about Canadian real estate investors and how the weaker Canadian Dollar is impacting their decision to sell properties here in the United States.
