The National Realty Report

All home owners know that moving to a new property can be a challenge. In fact, a move is considered one of THE major life events for most people. When you’re facing a really big move - to another county, or further - the challenges are even greater. Relocation to an unfamiliar area is more involved than most experiences you have with a real estate move: the ups and down of the property market, the search for real estate that is perfect for your circumstances in unfamiliar areas, and the hard work needed to achieve the best price within a tight timescale. Relocation brings even more complex issues of its own that often need quick answers; finding the right schools, working out the distance to local shopping, sourcing the nearest medical centre,

When it comes to choosing where to settle down and invest, basic comfort is all important. That goes for home relocation, business expansion, and it definitely goes for top quality seating in private jets.

That’s why major aerospace innovators Embraer chose carefully when they finally landed on Titusville in Brevard County as the winning destination for the new seating division of their airplane design and manufacturing business.

This exciting development for the Titusville aerospace industry means our Space Coast success story continues to go from strength to strength, and that means jobs, security, and a bright outlook for Brevard County residents and investors.

Home Staging Tips

If you are ready to sell your home, you may possibly have a price in mind that is going to be the lowest you will be willing to accept. Unfortunately, if your home has small issues that catch a buyer's attention, you may not get the offer you were looking for. By taking a little time to stage your home before your real estate agent starts showing it, you will get positive results and a better selling price. Inexpensive staging changes can add to the resale value of your home. It's important to remember the cost of any potential work or problem a buyer sees will be deducted from their offering price. There are inexpensive things you can do to improve the appearance of your home and increase the value.

Harris Corporation

Brevard County is celebrating today after the decision was finally made by major Fortune 500 company Harris Corporation, to retain its headquarters in Melbourne. It had been touch and go, with many predicting a relocation to Virginia after a powerful bid made by the state. However, it turns out that Melbourne's bid has tipped the balance, in a decision that will reinforce Brevard's global reputation for technological innovation.

The big news brings with it happiness and relief for the many existing employees already working for this major player in the defence industry. Harris is one of Brevard County's top employers, providing work for something like 6000 Florida residents. Over half of those working for the firm are skilled and highly qualified

new homes sales

Are you currently in the market for a new home? The latest news shows that more and more people are. The latest figures show that newly built homes are selling fast with the sales rate last May reaching its highest level for over 7 years. Let’s put that into context. In the early 2000s the housing bubble was building strongly - US homeownership reached an all-time high in 2004. Then around 2008 onwards sales began to dip. Last May’s level of 546,000 is the highest new home sales rate since February 2008. That shows a significant shift is happening in real estate market activity and it looks set to open the door to some promising market potential this year.

Take a look at the trend this year so far. May 2015’s sales figure is more than 2 percent

Florida Home

As we know, real estate markets change from month to month, and good news for sellers is not such great news for buyers.  We don’t currently have a balanced market in Florida real estate. The problem for buyers (and therefore the advantage for sellers!) is that there’s just not enough property to go round.

What would a balanced market look like? Well, economists typically look at what they call the ‘real estate absorption rate,’ which is calculated by taking the number of houses currently on the market by the number of sales. The result gives us a figure that show the number of months’ supply of homes available, or we could say, the number of coming months during which the market can offer as many homes are currently in demand. The market favors

American MagLev Technology Inc

Looking for even more reasons to invest in Brevard County real estate? Well, here could be yet another good one. Plans are being discussed - nothing definite yet, but talks are underway - to introduce train links between Port Canaveral and some top shopping, travel and leisure destinations, including local beaches, hotels and restaurants. Rumour has it that even Orlando International Airport could get its own rail connection with this major central Florida east coast port, although it’s the internal transport system within the Canaveral area that is being prioritised at this stage.

The train links under consideration are courtesy of American MagLev Technology Inc, who are making plans for a privately funded operation. The company has over 30 years

National Realty is excited to announce some really great news for buyers and sellers in the Brevard County area. In a lucrative vote of confidence for the local economy (and, we predict, the real estate market!) a major player in international aviation is set to arrive in Titusville, Florida. Top commercial jet manufacturing giant Embraer has just gone public with major new plans to expand in the county, with the creation of 150 new jobs, each with a salary of just under $50,000.

The Space Coast economy continues to develop steadily, and this new Embraer operation looks like it will bring renewed interest in local property, as well as the incentive for other businesses internationally to make Brevard County their chosen location. Embraer’s highly
