Clearwater Beach Things to Do, Watch Clearwater Beach

The northern winters results in many visitors going south to Florida as an escape from the cold weather, and Clearwater Beach continues to be a favorite place for these "Snowbirds". While visiting Clearwater Beach, listed below are some of the activities that the Clearwater Beach area has to offer. Jolley Trolley is a good means of transportation around this beach community. (727-445-1125) The main thing to do will always be the "Beach" and the "Main Event" will always be the beautiful sunsets there. Clearwater Beach has a nightly festival at sunset by Pier 60. Suncoast Cinema at Pier 60 shows FREE movies on Friday and Saturday nights at 9:00 PM.

There are many boats leaving the marina at Clearwater Beach for fishing or water tours. A couple of favorites for water tours include Sea Screamer (727-447-7200) and Captain Nemo (727-446-2587).

Need groceries or miscellaneous items, the good news there is a Publix at the eastern part of Clearwater Beach in Island Estates off SR 60.

Are you looking for a special treat then try Clearwater Beach Spa, Salon South Beach, Island Estates Hair and Nails, or the spa at Marriott Suites Clearwater Beach on Sand Key. (Sand Key also has a great beach to visit and there is plenty of parking along with a sailing center).

Clearwater Beach is in Pinellas County Florida and this county offers numerous choices for playing golf.

While visiting Clearwater Beach stop in at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (home of Winter, the star of Dolphin Tales). Still have time to spend while at Clearwater Beach then go south to Indian Shores and visit the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary.

There are many great restaurants on Clearwater Beach and one of the most popular is Frenchy's (four locations) with their famous grouper sandwich. Frenchy's Rockaway Grill is a great place to end your day at the beach and see the "Main Event" (sunset).

Clearwater Beach has many award winning designations including America's Top Family Beach, Best City Beach, One of the Best Beaches From Maine to Hawaii, one of the Top Singles Beaches in Florida, and Clearwater Beach continues to be one of the most popular places for Spring Breakers to visit.

Remember there is a very good reason that Florida is known as the Sunshine State if you really need another reason to visit Clearwater Beach. 

How To Avoid Common Home Buyer Mistakes

 

A good and experienced REALTOR can often make the home buying process look simple. A major mistake made by many home buyers is to assume it is a simple process and not account for the various complexities when buying their dream home. They then learn an expensive lesson too late. This list is presented so that homebuyers can avoid some of the mistakes that others have made.

1. Looking for a home prior to talking to a lender in person. The lender should be one you can sit down with and who has been recommended by others. Do not fall for those too good to be true deals found on the internet. Your REALTOR can help you with which lenders are most likely to close the loan for qualified applicants. Understand that your credit score may raise your borrowing cost and necessitate that you buy less house. Know that your fixup cost can sometimes be included in your loan at closing. Some buyers may assume they can not afford a home because they did not seek the assistance of a good lender. Know that just because you qualify to buy a home, before spending the money find out if the home qualifies. Just knowing the difference between the two types of modular homes can make a dramatic difference in your lending cost if a modular home is your choice. (On frame will often have higher borrowing cost). Some condominiums or vacant land may not be eligible through your lender. A mistake that is often made is when a buyer makes a large purchases after the loan application and prior to close. This includes furniture and cars. They may then disqualify themselves.

2. Not using an agent that looks out for your best interest. Remember my opening statement about how a good an experienced  REALTOR can make it look simple. It is not simple and a buyer should always have good representation when around a seller's agent, open houses, for sale by owners, or new construction. Do not allow a seller's agent understand how you feel about their listing. A good seller's real estate agent not only knows the right questions to determine your motivation, they look for the nonverbal signs. It is important to be sure to let your agent know all your wants and needs so they do look out for your best interest. Do not commit to more than one agent during the buying process.

3. Not objectively analyzing your cost. Buyers often rationalize they can afford a house at the expense of not looking at the big picture. This is a partial list of some of the additional cost;
a) Appraisal
b) Credit report
c) Home Owner's Insurance
d) HOA or Maintenance fees
e) Property taxes
f)  Deferred maintenance cost and cost of updating
g) Home inspection 
h) How much are your living expenses prior to this purchase, use the appropriate numbers in your budget.
i) Potential utility cost

4. Not considering location. This home will someday need to be sold so what may not be important to you may be important to the next buyer. Are the schools good, shopping nearby, employment accessable, what will happen in the future around the house. The beautiful farm that borders, can it become something undesirable or the road that borders the property will it become more heavily traveled and consequently expanded? Does economic obsolescence or functional obsolescence apply to the property and if so has that been considered in the price?

5. Not using a professional inspector.

6. Buying the most you can afford on two incomes.

7. Compromising on the the important things. Figure out what is absolutely necessary and stick to it. Along with this do not be too picky and lack vision when you find the diamond in the rough. Do not be seduced by minor upgrades such as a clean painted house with great curb appeal if it does not meet your vital criteria otherwise you will probably regret moving there.

8. Thinking distressed property or distressed seller equates to a great buying opportunity.

9. Not understanding where you are in the real estate cycle. This is not always easy to discern and understand and even though you may be in a buyer's market, there may be certain areas or price ranges that have become a sellers market. A REALTOR can help you work through this and know what is hot and what is not. A traditional tool used by many real estate agents is months supply. How many months based on current sales trend will it take to sell a similar home with six months supply representing a stable market. If there are five months or less of housing inventory then it is considered a seller's market and prices will likely rise. If the inventory of similar houses is seven months or more then prices will possibly be coming down. Has the housing inventory been decreasing or increasing the past six months is also important factor?

10. Not doing a serious final walk through. Take pictures prior to the offer to purchase and if there is something  of value that may be changed (chandelier), then take that picture also. Never assume that just because something was in MLS or there when you preview the house that it will be there at closing. Get it in writing with your initial offer.

There are of course other mistakes that a home buyer can potentially make in the home buying process. Because the market in the Tampa Bay Area has gone from a "Buyer's Market" to a "Seller's Market" recently some common mistakes that are now occurring are; Always looking for a better deal and lowballing instead of negotionating realistically. Since the housing inventory has declined and interest rates are low and the market in most of the Tampa Bay Area has become a seller's market and there is becoming an upward pressure on prices and less housing inventory.

There are  some great opportunities when making a distressed property purchase and at the same time be reminded that a distressed property does not always mean it is a good deal to buy. It is also important for buyers who will be financing their purchase to have preapproval because most sellers of bank owned properties will require this before they will consider an offer to purchase.
