 What a Sunset tonight in Melbourne,Florida. On our way to a nice dinner in Downtown Melbourne enjoying the scenery on Riverside Dr. When we made the turn on to 5th Ave:  There it was one of the sweetest sunsets I've ever seen over the Indian River lagoon. Luckily, I just happened to have my camera with me (I've learned to carry it with me all of the time) Wanted to share these photos with you. -Paul These photos by Paul Peck (Peck Drywall and Painting) are copyrighted with all rights reserved.

  Business is a lot like life in the wild - The early bird gets the goods? You have to stay ahead of your competition everyday. You have to keep up with the latest techniques in your ever changing world. You have to be willing to work hard at it day in and day out just to survive. And if you fail you have to keep trying, because no one else is going to do it for you. But when victory comes the taste is so so sweet! Have a good week everyone.

I just posted this on my facebook business page Peck Drywall and Painting and wanted to share it with all of my new friends here on ActiveRain too. Photos were taken from my driveway in Indialantic, Florida (about 20 miles from the launch pads). The Atlas 5 rocket was carrying an Air Force experimental Mini Shuttle. It blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air force station at dusk as I was cooking dinner on the grill. In the last couple of photos you can see the stages of the rocket releasing and falling.

*Gypsum Wallboard / Drywall / Sheetrock* Gypsum wallboard was first introduced in the 1920's, and it completed changed interior wall construction. This product is also known as drywall, or sheetrock. The name Sheetrock is a registered trademark of the U.S.Gypsum Co. There are many advantages of drywall over the traditional plaster wall covering methods. Gypsum wallboard is applied dry, as the name drywall implies, so no moisture need be introduced to the underlying structure during construction. You also don't waste time waiting for the plaster to dry, and construction can take place even in cold, moist weather periods. Other benefits: Drywall is less expensive and less labor intensive to install Finished wall interiors are easier to paint and maintain Weighs significantly less than pla...

Melbourne, Florida is happening right now!  Buyers are raining on the available inventory like a big spring shower.   Beware: these buyers are armed with sharp pencils instead of umbrellas!  Everybody is looking for the best deal - heck, aren’t we all?    The April 30th tax credit deadline is two weeks away and it’s just too good to pass up.  Sellers:  make sure your home is show-ready!!!Lots of excitement and anticipation out there for both buyers and sellers.   Play nice and keep a cool head.  An overly aggressive style usually bombs out during negotiations.  This is a good rule for both sides to remember.  Get out there and get a spring deal while they’re blooming!

Now is the time to buy! The buyers Are Back! TOP REASONS TO BUY NOW! Tax Credit Still in Effect until 4/30, You Could Have Up To $8,000! Rates Are Near All Time Lows at or near 5%, Rates Are Expected To Rise From these Levels Which Will Make the Home Purchase Less Affordable If you Wait! There Are over 1,000 Homes For $100,000 or Less. These Homes are moving Fast and When They are Gone, It's All about Supply/Demand, Prices Will Rise. Cost to Own Less Than Renting! Thats Right, You Can Own a Single Family Home For $50,000 Or Less...The average Payment on a Home of this price would only be $420 Per Month!! Considering The Tax Benefits for Interest Deduction, Provides even more incentive to Own. Rent Vs Own Savings: If you Rented for $800 Per month for 10 Years, That is $96,000 You Will Ne...

There is currently close to 4,300 Single Family Homes Active For Sale in Brevard County Of those 4,300 homes; 1,066 listed are Short Sales And Only 289 are Bank Owned Homes The average time it took for a home to sell is 105 days March was a very active month as 564 Homes Sold in March, this marked the best month of the year. This spike in home buyers are likely to be in part of the $8,000 Tax Credits final push, but many homes were sold to cash buyers who are benefiting from a rising Stock Market, this has enabled buyers to have more confidence and capital. The Tax Credit incentive is set to expire on 4/30/2010 for new contracts that close by 6/30/2010 If You would like a free neighborhood update, just contact me anytime.   Steve Vitani - Realtor www.SteveSellsFlorida.com
