Architectural niches


Do you have those things called "architectural niches" around your home?  You know, those indention, framing nothing parts in your drywall that you have no idea how to highlight, or in some case, hide?  While throwing a vase or a bust of George Washington might be an easy remedy in some of those cases, others are a little trickier.  Like the one that greats your guests the minute they enter your front door. There are some steps that may help make your decorating chore a little simpler.

Decorating architectural niches
Mirrors add some pizzazz


1.  Determine if you are trying to make this area pop, become a functional area or blend into the landscape of the room.

2.  Move various items you have in the space already into this one to determine height, width, and color schemes that will work.

3.  Consider using paint to change the background of the area.  A small area of faux paint can really help make the area unique.

4. Utilize repurposed objects from another area and paint with acrylic or chalk paint so that it will now work in this area.

5.  Light it up.  Do you have a handy touch to add lighting to the area? That may make your niche shine.

6. Glue wood, tiles, glass or mirrors in the area to add extra pizzazz.

No matter what you choose to do, make it your own and make it unique.  You and your family and guests will enjoy your work for years to come and if you, or they aren't crazy about the new look, change it up until you find the look that works for you.

Jennifer Card is a Realtor with The Mark Card Team and enjoys helping her clients explore ideas for making their homes unique and styled perfectly for their families.  If you're in search of someone to help you make those subtle changes that create big results, call Jennifer at 386-566-8091.

Are Buyers Searching for Homes?

Buyers are in the market looking at homes.  COVID-19 may have slowed things down for a short time, but showings are on the rise.  As you will see in this graphic by Showingtime, showings in the Florida markets are still on the rise.

Searching for homes in the Daytona Beach area is on the rise and we are seeing many properties sell in multiple offer situations.  What does that mean?  For sellers, it means that if they have the correct pricing strategy that meets the conditions of the home, it should sell in relatively short time. If you're a buyer, now is the time for diligence to stay on top of properties that are coming onto the market. Inventory is relatively low, so our opinion is that if there were more properties on the market at this time, there would be even more showings, because interest rates are incredibly low as well.

If you're searching homes or condos for sale in the Daytona Beach Shores area, contact Mark Card

Selling & Buying Real Estate during COVID-19 


Are you looking to make a move?  COVID-19 has affected us all and real estate is no exception.  If you're trying to sell your home or are looking to make a purchase, there are some guidelines set forth by the Florida Association of Realtors that professional agents are using to do their part.

COVID19 Real Estate Protocol
No Matter Your Position on the Subject, showing Respect for Others' Property & the Protocols they expect, is right.  


COVID 19 Protocols from the Florida Association of Realtors

≫ Follow all CDC guidelines ≫ General guidelines • Practice social distancing. Stay 6 feet away from others. Avoid physical contacts such as hugs, handshakes, large gatherings and proximity. • Wash your hands. Frequent handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is a well recognized preventative measure. • Cover your mouth and nose in public. Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others and in public. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. • Cover coughs and sneezes. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. • Disinfect surfaces with the appropriate cleaning solutions. Frequently touched surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks. Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants, diluted household bleach solutions and alcohol solutions will work. • Do NOT conduct open houses • Do NOT canvas neighborhoods in person (knock on doors, deliver door hangers, etc.) ≫ Whenever possible, conduct all showings virtually. This is the best social distancing technique. ≫ If it is necessary to show a property in person, plan ahead with the owner and the buyer or tenant. • Wear disposable gloves whenever possible. • Ask the owner to wipe down all surfaces before a buyer or tenant is granted access. • Advise buyers or tenants in advance that they need to bring and will be required to wear gloves and face coverings, and to avoid touching or adjusting their mask. • Consider market availability when requesting additional safety measures like hand sanitizer and personal protective equipment such as shoe coverings or masks. • Consider using the Florida Realtors® COVID-19/Coronavirus In-Person Access Acknowledgement form. • Limit showings to one group at a time to minimize contact, and schedule showings to allow time for needed cleaning of touched surfaces between showings. • Ask the buyer or tenant to limit the number of people viewing the property to only those necessary. • Ask the buyer or tenant to refrain from touching items unless necessary. • Ask the buyer or tenant to be efficient in minimizing the time physically at the property. • For vacant properties, discuss with the owner the plan for proper cleaning. Consider whether a professional cleaning service should be used or whether virtual showings are best. • Have the owner coordinate access for showings with the association, if needed. • Do NOT show property if you do not feel well. • Do NOT show property to someone who does not feel well. RISK CANNOT BE COMPLETELY ELIMINATED, but these are measures

Buyers Looking for Homes During COVID-19 


Are you a buyer that has to move and needs to be looking for homes right now?  Have your plans been upended because there is a lack of inventory to consider or you are unsure if your loan will be approved during this time?

The home buying process can be stressful already, without the injection of the pandemic we experience today.  While each market is different, ours still has buyers that for one reason or another, are on a short timeline to make a purchase.  Some sellers in the area have halted showings and some have chosen to continue to allow showings, but with restrictions.  These dynamics make it more important than ever to enlist the help of an experienced Realtor.  While much of what is happening these days is unchartered territory, you'll want those that have a circle of professionals that are well versed in everything from finance, inspections, appraisals, and repairs to help you to make informed decisions and to watch for any red flags that may lie ahead.
Jennifer Card Realtor

Some general items for every buyer to consider during COVID:


1. Hire an experienced Realtor
2. Have frank discussion with your lender on your job status and income streams
3. Create a back up plan in the event your closing is delayed
4. Be flexible.  You may need to look at homes virtually through your agent to narrow possibilities.
5. Wear a mask and gloves to any in person showings

Why do you need to speak to a Realtor Now?


Because many sellers are reluctant to list their homes at this time, agents will have knowledge of future inventory so that you can be kept apprised of what to expect and any properties that could be possibilities.

If we can be of help to you and your families, please feel free to contact Mark Card or Jennifer Card at 386-566-8091.

Retiring in Florida Daytona Beach Shores

It's time to retire. But to where?  A place that has white sandy beaches that are also ideal for riding bikes, long walks and even driving your car, that's where.  Daytona Beach Shores is a mecca for those retirees looking for a relaxing way to spend time celebrating all they've worked for over the years.  There are many places you could consider retiring in Florida, and Daytona Beach Shores is considered one of the finest.
Daytona Beach Shores Views

Why choose Daytona Beach Shores to retire in Florida?  First, the beautiful weather.  The average temps in Daytona Beach Shores is 73.58 degrees. Then there is the tax benefit.  No state income tax is enticing for many, and we understand that even property taxes are less than many of our northern neighbors.  It doesn't hurt that the World's Most Famous Beach just to the north of the Shores, has many events throughout the year that provide inexpensive and often free entertainment.  The Daytona Beach Bandshell has concert series that are free and open to the public.  There are car, home, bike & boat shows, sailing and jet ski contests, air shows and more. The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is just south of the Shores and has plenty of fishing charters, restaurants, and even the Marine Science Center.  Crabby Joes' is a popular spot for breakfast and lunch and is located right on the Sunglow Pier.  You'll also want to hit the Down Under District. It is just a hop, skip and jump away and has some great places to eat and enjoy the water.  You'll even be able to throw a line to fish around the area.

Margarita Ball 2019


The 2019 Margarita Ball is tomorrow, November 22nd at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach.  This annual event is in its 33rd year and is sure to be a showstopper. This charity event is invitation only and is held to collect toys for needy children in the Volusia County area. 

Each year, roughly 20 charities are selected to receive toys to distribute to families that need a hand up to make Christmas bright for their children.  Our goal this year is to collect 5,000 toys so our guest will come loaded down with unwrapped presents at the Ball.

Mark and Jennifer Card are one of the 25 couples that serve on the Margarita Society of Volusia County Board of Directors.

The Margarita Society is committed to children in the community and will be helping the following charities for 2019.

Margaritaville Home Sold


New construction homes in Latitude Margaritaville are selling quickly.  We can attest to this, because we have been working with several buyers that have been "on the fence" between lots and model choices. When they contact us to make their move toward buying, the lots are already sold. 

Luckily, a couple we have recently be working with to purchase a single family home in Margaritaville found the perfect lot for them in Phase 3A.

We are now in the process of solidifying the contract with the builder and working through the construction process with them.  If everything goes according to plan, their builder should have their home completed as early as May 2020. 

There are areas in Margaritaville that will be completed prior to the May timeline, and we are able to share with you which lots and models are available at this time. 

The Coconut floorplan is the one this couple chose and it has a fabulous open layout.  The kitchen opens directly to the living room area, which makes this model ideal for entertaining.  At a total of 2397 sqft. total and 1684 sqft. of living area, you'll find that when you enter the home through the 8 ft. door, that you are led into an amazing living room area. The home is a 2 bedroom 2 bath, but also has a den that is ideal for guests, and especially as an office or hobby room.  What's more is that the lanai is 25 ft. long across the back. 

The buyers are so excited to be a part of this amazing community.  They will no longer have to maintain their lawn, as that is part of the HOA fee.  There are gates so that any visitors will need to stop there to gain entry.  The town center is filled with plenty of activities like swimming, tennis/pickleball, fitness, and also has a business center, restaurant and bar, bocce ball and even a band shell.  The private beach club is in the works and there are shuttles that take residents back and forth.

If you've been searching for homes for sale in Margaritaville, give us a call.  We'd be happy to help you find your way so that you don't step on any pop tops along the road to your new Latitude Margaritaville home. 

The Mark Card Team has over 40 years of combined experience to help you find just the right home and works diligently to create a smooth move for you.  Give us a shout at 386-566-8091.
