Hunters Creek 5th Grader And His Dog Serving The Community

 

Matthew CondeMatthew Conde, resident of Mar Vista in Hunters Creek has found a fun and constructive way to walk his dog “Jax”. Matthew says ” I’ve been walking him around the pond and he loves jumping in the water and picking up plastic bottles in the grass along the waterline. He kept bringing me the different objects that he found so now I have to bring a poop bag and a garbage bag!”. On a typical walk around the pond, Jax picks up between 3- 5 plastic bottles and other objects.

Matthew attends 5th grade at West Creek Elementary where he recently won 1st place in the school spelling bee. He’s an A student and is involved in several other activities like playing on a U-11 competitive soccer team for the Hunters

Hunters Creek PondCreek Soccer Club. Matthew’s parents, who are both listing agents in Hunters Creek said that ” anything Matthew puts his mind to, he does well”. Which is why when he came up with the idea of using his dog to help keep the neighborhood clean, they weren’t at all surprised.

 

“Jax” is a 10 month old yellow Labrador Retriever who loves jumping in the water and playing fetch like most Labs do. Jax however, is more interested in retrieving plastic bottles and other objects out of the pond than he is in chasing balls. Matthew’s parents say that the 5th grader spends lots of time playing and training with the K9 on a daily basis. [right after he finishes his homework].

A Beautiful Day In Hunters Creek, FL. Come Join Me!

Real Estate Hunters CreekI wake up to a dense mist over the pond in my backyard, the only things I see moving are the deer grazing in the open field. It gives me the feeling of living deep in the forest as I notice the tops of the  tall pines tower above. Throughout the day I get regular visits by a wide variety of native birds that swoop into the fish filled pond to grab their meal for the day. This is a common site to see in Hunters Creek, FL. my favorite neighborhood in the whole world. It’s a crisp and peaceful winter morning as bicyclists and joggers make their way through the many nature trails located throughout the neighborhood. 

When you live and work in a neighborhood where the quality of life can be seen just by peaking out the window or grabbing the morning paper, you have no choice but to feel fortunate and blessed. As my two boys [8 and 10] reluctantly wake up to eat breakfast, my wife and I get ready for our morning bike ride through Shingle Creek Trail. On the way to the trail, our 3rd and 5th graders join us for a few blocks until we arrive at their school, West Creek Elementary, an A school with an impeccable reputation.

As we continue on our journey to the trail we cruise through the Vista parks which include: 3 soccer fields, 4 basketball courts, a volleyball court, 2 playgrounds, gazebos and two dog parks… all within a distance of 1/2 mile! My boys both play competitive soccer for the Hunters Creek Soccer Club which is ranked one of the top clubs in Central Fl. However, if soccer isn’t your child’s sport of choice, Hunters Creek also offers youth basketball, baseball, football, tennis, and even a volleyball league.

The community center located in Osprey park which is less than a mile from my house has so many amenities including recreational activities, classes and programs for residents of all ages. And when the weather is nice, they have movie in the park on Friday nights where you can bring chairs, blankets and snacks to enjoy popular family movies under the stars.

On our way back to the house my wife and I who is also an Orlando realtor decide to ride through the new Hunters Pointdevelopment of “Hunters Point” formerly known as “Kaileys Ridge” to see how the construction of the highly anticipated new subdivision is coming along. The area will consist of 127 homes built by “Surrey” and “Ryan” home builders. So far, the streets and sidewalks have been paved but no sign of the first foundation being laid yet.

 

At the end of the day we all head over to the Alehouse located at the Hunters Creek Villages, to take advantage of the weekly BBQ rib special that they offer to residents. We are fortunate enough to have a wide variety of great restaurants, bakeries, delis, frozen yogurt and pizza places all within walking distance. If shopping is your thing, “The Loop” just 2 miles away has everything you could wish for in a mall including a state-of-the-art movie theater.

Retired Couple Buy Their Orlando Dream Home!

Couple Finds Their Orlando Dream Home in Hunters Creek

Hunters Creek, FL
Hunters Creek, FL

Living in New York most of their lives this retired couple had had enough of the cold and ready to live out their golden years in “The City beautiful”. After spending time with their nephew who lives in Hunters Creek, FL and after several months of searching in other Orlando neighborhoods they decided that Hunters Creek is where they wanted to live and they were finally ready to shift into buying mode for that specific area.

When a buyer is only interested in one specific area it can be both good and bad from the realtor’s stand point. The good part is that it doesn’t take long to do a search for all the homes that are available for sale in the area. The bad part is that it usually takes longer to find the perfect home for someone who is only interested in seeing homes in such a relatively small area due to lack of inventory.

However, it seems that these buyers were being helped by some kind of divine intervention. Just days into showing these retirees homes that were for sale I received a call from a Hunters Creek homeowner needing to sell their home quickly. These distressed homeowners were six months behind on their Wells Fargo mortgage and have exhausted all means of trying to keep their home.

They were in need of completing an short sale on their home and with an approaching foreclosure date, they needed to get it done A.S.A.P. After Googling “short sale experts in Hunters Creek, FL”, they found our company and hired us to complete their short sale. The next morning we met with them at home to collect paperwork, get measurements, photos and everything else we needed to get the ball rolling with the short sale. Although the home needed some work I felt it may be a good fit for our retired couple from New York so I brought them to see it that same night.

They fell in love with the Lake front home in Calabay Cove. My concerns over the needed repairs disappeared when I found out that the buyer was a handy man and actually loved the idea of having something to do! We explained to the buyers that a short sale can sometimes be a lengthy process but they were willing to stick it out in hopes of getting a great deal on their dream home.

Although it was a bumpy road like most short sales, after three months of negotiating with Wells Fargo we received the short sale approval letter and the buyers wee able to close on the home just 10 days after we received the approval. The final short sale price that was agreed upon by the lender was $278,000.00. Considering that the full payoff on this 4 bd rm 3 bd rm home was $470,000.00 the buyers were elated to finally close on their dream home….. I must admit that it was also pretty nice to make a double commission.

Kaileys Ridge Update

Kaileys Ridge

Floor plans and pricing for Kailey’s Ridge in Hunters Creek are being finalized by both builders and are expected be ready within weeks. With the entrance roadway now paved, construction moves to the next phase of development. The builders (Ryan Homes and Surrey Homes) will each control 50% of the 134 home sites and are scheduled to begin construction on the actual homes by the end of September or beginning of October of this year. The development will cover about 53.4 acres of land.

Home prices are expected to run between the 3 to 4 hundred thousand dollar range and provide buyers with top quality residences with some very attractive and functional floor plans to choose from. The plan is also to provide a rural feel to the community for future residents which is why at least thirty percent of the new subdivision will remain protected and unspoiled.

 Hunters Creek Roadways Will Remain The Same

As a follow up to my last article about Kaileys Ridge “Kaileys Ridge Underway Residents React”  Many residents will be very happy to know that the roadway leading into Kaileys Ridge will not be connecting to any other road. The plan was to have the road connect to either Osceola Pkwy or International Drive. There where even plans to connect the road to 535! As a resident and realtor in Hunters Creek, I’m glad that the Hunters Creek Community Association would not allow this to happen. Developers agreed to pay the  $2,700.00 per lot in order to part of the HCCA. There will be additional fees to pay by the builders as well as the homeowners as the development progresses.
