Downtown Tampa Development

by Craig & Linda Nowicke

Downtown Tampa is the place to be these days, with so much going on that you won’t want to miss!  The waterfront district is getting a facelift with two new development projects recently announced.  Riverwalk Place and a Marriott Edition hotel will both be within walking distance of the Tampa Convention Center.  These projects are just part of the continue redevelopment that is shaping the future of Downtown Tampa.

Riverwalk Place will soar over 50 stories to become one of the tallest towers on Florida’s west coast.  It will house offices, restaurants and luxury condominiums.  Prices for the condos will range from around $600,000 to over $2 million. It will be the first new office sky scraper build in Tampa in 30 years, and it will be the first mixed-use tower ever per Larry Feldman, President and Chief Executive of Feldman Equities.  The goal is for it to become the social hub of Downtown Tampa.  Offering views of the Hillsborough River and Bay from most offices and residences, it’s curved, sailboat-like shape will fit right in to Tampa Bay’s maritime character.

Just two blocks east from Riverwalk Place will be a 173-room Edition hotel. The hope is that it will become Tampa’s first five-star resort and the crown jewel of the proposed Water Street Tampa neighborhood. The plan is for Water Street Tampa to encompass 53 acres along the Ybor Chanel, converting it into a cultural hub with restaurants, green spaces, marinas and hotels.  With a rooftop pool, adjacent bar, restaurant, spa and fitness center, and retail shops, the Edition is sure to be a favorite spot for Tampa residents and tourists alike. 

Downtown Tampa is growing and thriving due to the $3 Billion redesign and is part of what makes the city and surrounding areas a wonderful place to live!    Lots more to come!

In the luxury retail market, 45% of customers are asking for personalized products and service – which translated into real estate means that it’s time for your marketing and their experiences to be both personalized and unique – so don’t be scared to do things differently!

Insurance 101

by Craig & Linda Nowicke

Becoming a homeowner for the first time can seem like a daunting task. There are so many details and many first-time homebuyers don’t know all the ins and outs of homeownership. It’s important to educate yourself and be prepared for what’s to come.  One aspect of being a homeowner is paying homeowner’s insurance. 

To understand how you pay for homeowner’s insurance, you need to understand your monthly mortgage payment and how it breaks down.  There are four parts to you mortgage payment: PITI. This stands for principal, interest, taxes and insurance.  The insurance part of your payment can vary depending upon your loan type.  There are some insurances that are required when you obtain a mortgage, and others that are not.  It’s up to you to decide what you need and to do so, you need to understand what they cover.

Mortgage insurance (MI) will usually be required if you are putting down less that 20% on your home purchase.  But not all loans require MI.  For example, a VA Loan does not require the borrower to pay MI. It is replaced by an upfront VA Funding Fee.  Even if you are required to purchase MI, once you have 20% equity in your home, it can be dropped.

Homeowners insurance is another requirement of getting a mortgage loan.  This is the insurance that protects your home in the event of fire, theft, or damage.  Depending on the insurance you choose, you may be covered for things like stolen jewelry and stolen or damaged electronics and/or furniture.  You must be able to provide proof of insurance to your lender before closing on your home. This insurance not only protects you as the homeowner, but it also protects the lender in case of foreclosure or in the event of a disaster.  It is common for the lender to require you have at least enough insurance to cover the cost of rebuilding the home. 

Another requirement is that you purchase Title Insurance. This insurance protects you by providing proof of legal ownership should someone else try to claim ownership of the property.  Should a title dispute arise resulting from a sale, the title insurance may be responsible for paying specific legal damages, depending on the policy you have.

There are additional insurances that are not required by your lender, but you may want to consider them for more protection.  Personal property insurance may cover personal belongings that your homeowner’s insurance does not cover, like art, collectibles, and firearms.  A home warranty is not insurance, but does offer further protection should something break. For example, you might want a home warranty for your HVAC system to cover the cost of service should it need repairs.  Purchasing additional insurance or a home warranty is a personal choice. You can talk to your mortgage banker and insurance agent regarding your options.

Are you ready to SELL your home?  Call the TAMPA BAY real estate professionals, Linda & Craig Nowicke, at Tampa Realty Now and let them assist you in getting your home STAGED and SOLD for the highest possible price!  CALL THEM TODAY at 813-728-3880 or 813-675-5030.
