Stay Curious

 

The Orlando Fringe Festival has become a staple of springtime in the Orlando area.  What is the Orlando Fringe Festival you ask? The festival is an arts festival that takes over the Loch Haven park area for 14 days every year, since 1992, in the month of May.  It has grown from a small local operation, into an international destination.  

 

This year the festival features over 950 performances of the different shows.  As the Festival’s website states, the festival was founded to be, “100% unjuried, 100% uncensored, 100% accessible, 100% inclusive, and 100% of sales returned back to the artists.”  

 

What makes the festival so unique is that you could spend all 14 days there from sunrise to sunrise and still not experience all that the festival has to offer.  The shows vary from kid, and sensory friendly shows, to extremely adult shows that would make even the most open minded of people blush.

 

Every year the festival comes up with a tagline to help engage its guests. This year the tagline is “Stay Curious,” which goes to the heart of what Orlando Fringe is all about. The festival does it best to feature a wide range of shows so that all aspects of your senses can be pushed to new levels.  The festival asks you to step outside of your comfort zone and be curious to what else might be outside your normal circle.

It All Starts with a Wish

 

Today marks the end of an era at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Today, Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams sets off its last firework.  It is a firework show that incorporates many different eras of Disney’s animated legacy, and does a good job of making both young and old feel young again.

Wishes first premiered on October 9, 2003, and has been shown nightly ever since.  There have been brief times where it has been replaced by seasonal offerings for brief periods, but even during some of those seasonal events, Wishes still appeared in the night sky every night.  It is a world class firework’s experience that features fireworks set to music like only Disney can do.   It features music from movies such as Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Hercules, Peter Pan, and many more. It does a fantastic job of weaving together pieces from these different movies to tell the story of the magic of believing in wishing upon a star.

One of the main staples that sets Wishes apart from other fireworks shows, is the nightly flight of Tinkerbell.  As long as weather permits, Tinkerbell flies every night from the top of the castle that is at the heart of the Magic Kingdom.  Every night that she flies the crowds cheer no matter if they have seen it once or a hundred times. 

Part of what sets Walt Disney World apart from other theme parks is that it plays on nostalgia to make you remember what it feels like to be a kid again.  With Wishes departing today, part of that nostalgia is leaving, but lets hope the new fireworks show, Happily Ever After, is just as good.

Get Your House Ready for Summer

Working in the real estate industry has a lot to do with not only the referrals we receive from our clients and friends but also the referrals that we give out.  Today I had the pleasure of receiving a superior house cleaning from 3-D restoration. This is the first time I've had a carpet cleaner come to the house and the carpets actually look and feel 10 times better. This is not the case with a 3-D restoration cleaning. The carpets were beginning to look like they might need to be replaced, but now they feel fantastic. I cannot thank Danny enough for making my house feel fantastic again.

           3-D restoration is now the company I will be using whenever I need to get a house show ready.  Give them a call today at 407-292-4636 to see how they can make your home feel brand new again as well.

 

Here's Danny, the owner, working hard.

What businesses are out there that you would recommend?

What is your agent doing to sell your house?

What is your agent doing to sell your house?  

During my morning routine of looking at the new properties listed for sale I ran across a brand new listing that prompted me to write this blog.  Now the house has location, location, location going for it.  It's in a wonderful neighborhood located in Dr Phillips, one of the most desirable places to live in Orlando.  

Now we know home buyers start on the internet.  Within seconds they determine to click or not to click for more information.  Buyers are also looking for numerous pictures of the house and a virtual tour.

Here is the picture, the one and only picture, the agent posted on behalf of their sellers to sell the house.

Orlando Market Update April 2017

Orlando is currently a sellers market. All the industry "experts" were predicting a shift to a buyers market for 2017. Look at the graph below. Inventory is drastically low. Which means prices are up.
What does this mean to you? For buyers: prices are high however the interest rates are still historically low. You could wait for prices to drop however if interest rates go up as we are being told they will, then you get much less home even if the prices are lower.
If you are a seller, now is a great time to sell. You are selling when the market is high and able to buy while interest rates are low.
The iHouse Orlando Team has been in business since 2006. We have experienced the ups and downs of the real estate market and survived. We are here to help you with all of your real estate needs. Call 407-579-4864
