Southwest Florida popular destination for Northeasterners

aples and Southwest Florida have always been a haven for Midwesterners because the area’s casual lifestyle and relaxed attitude most resembles that of their home state. In fact, Naples was founded by a group from Kentucky, and several key developers from Ohio, Chicago and other Midwestern areas have played key roles in the development of the area over the years. Recently, however, the west coast of Florida has become more attractive to Northeasterners who are relocating here in increasing numbers.

Who can blame them? Southwest Florida is the perfect escape from the Northeast’s long, harsh winters and its renowned fast-paced momentum. Residents from New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and surrounding states have discovered that choosing the more calming environment of Southwest Florida does not mean trading the luxury comforts they’ve become accustomed to up north. Southwest Florida’s soothing setting, which amounts to less traffic, less noise and less stress, does not mean there is nothing to do. Over the last decade, Naples and the surrounding cities of Bonita Springs, Estero and Marco Island have transformed from sleepy, beachfront communities 6

into sophisticated settings. While the area has always been known for its comfortable year-around weather and outdoor recreational activities, including world-class golf, it has since added tony shopping and sensational dining to its list of things to do. Meccas like Mercado, Coconut Point and Gulf Coast Town Center have joined long-established shopping and browsing destinations, such as the Village on Venetian Bay, The Promenade, Miromar Outlets and Waterside Shops. These locations boast retail names such as Gucci, Tiffany, Guess, Nordstrom’s, Mondo Uomo, Saks Fifth Avenue and Salvatore Ferragamo, plus plenty of restaurant opportunities. Additionally, the area’s arts and cultural offerings have also evolved giving Northeasterners a taste of home. The Philharmonic Center for the Arts in Naples and the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers bring a sampling of big city hits from Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” and Michael Feinstein’s tributes to “West Side Story” and the New York City Rockettes. Blues, jazz, opera, country, bluegrass, classical----all music styles can be found at locations varying from the Philharmonic to outdoor band

shells to simple coffee shops or taverns. Likewise, modern dance, ballet, comedy and other genres can be found in ample supply. The Naples area has become an artist haven, with hundreds of artists, and key display locations such as the Naples Museum of Art, the von Liebig Art Center and a vast array of art galleries, sure to please even the most discriminating connoisseur. It would be remiss not to make further mention of the outdoor activities, which are a large draw to those from northern areas. Golfing is renowned, with the Naples area laying claim to the most golf holes per capita. For those who are not golfers, there are still many choices. Boating, fishing, swimming and the beach are always popular … likewise for walking, biking and tennis. Nature hikes in the areas around the fabulous Everglades are always interesting. The bottom line is that it’s hard not to be outside when the weather is so beautiful. Of course, there’s nothing like a spring training baseball game on a beautiful sunny day, which explains why the Boston Red Sox games are so popular. In fact, a new stadium is currently under construction for the team. Few areas can boast two spring training teams, but Southwest Florida has the Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins.

Beyond the entertainment choices and host of activities, those from the Northeast are also enjoying the tax benefits of Florida, including the Homestead Exemption which entitles homeowners to a significant tax break. The lack of a state income tax is perhaps the most compelling of all, reportedly helping to attract celebrities, sports stars and especially non-famous people to the state. Southwest Florida is attractive for a number of reasons, which is why it is not surprising that the area is becoming increasingly popular as a desirable place to relocate or to retire. John R. Wood Realtors has been helping people find their dream homes in the area for over 50 years. Traditionally, the company assists many Northeasterners who start with a second home, eventually changing it to a permanent location. Today, however, increasing numbers are bypassing the second home stage and making Florida their “primary residence” (refer back to no income tax!), and spending 7 to 12 months in the area. Properties for sale in Naples and Southwest Florida can easily be located on, or the company can be contacted at 800-349-9999.



Seeking ‘Jumbo’ Financing? Now may be the time.

ith Federal Housing Administration loan limits set to reduce October 1, 2011, homebuyers purchasing costlier homes will have to pay more for the most widely used mortgages available.

percent of local median price. In addition, the current limits are based on median prices set during the housing bubble, when home values were greatly inflated.

In an attempt to scale back the size of jumbo mortgages guaranteed in costly real estate markets, the maximum FHA loan amount that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back will decrease from $729,750 to $625,500. Loan limits vary from county to county, with high-cost regions such as New York and San Francisco offering a maximum of $729,750. When the deadline expires, the maximum loan amounts will be set at 115 percent of the local median price, which would drop the limits to $625,500 or lower for high-cost regions and between $417,000 and $625,500 for many other areas.

This is significant for homebuyers seeking to purchase in high-cost areas and plan to obtain a government-backed mortgage. For example, a borrower seeking to buy a $1 million home will require a substantial down payment for a government-backed loan of this size, increasing the required down payment from $270,000 to $370,000.

These maximums are set under the existing law at 115 percent of the local median price. However, with expanded limits currently in effect for 61 percent of the U.S. population, the maximum loans are set at 125 8

For the majority of upper-middle class homebuyers in these high-cost regions, $1 million affords a comfortable home, not a mansion. According to Zillow, San Francisco has 2,697 homes for sale with a price tag of $1 million or more. The median size for these homes is 3,180 square feet. In New York, there are 16,680 homes for sale in the same price range, averaging 3,308 square feet. The majority of larger cities across America have a significant supply of homes that qualify for the jumbo loan profile.

Classic properties International

The upcoming loan limit changes have the potential to greatly affect a large market segment of homebuyers and their wallets.

Congress twice raised the limit on government-backed loans in high cost areas, first to $625,500 permanently, and then to $729,750 temporarily.

Luxury homes specialist Sotheby’s International Realty reports sales making double-digit gains for the first quarter of this year over last year. The National Association of Realtors released encouraging news that the sale of homes over $1 million were up 5.1 percent in March over the same month last year.

According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, nearly 669 of the nation’s 3,334 counties or county equivalents will be affected by the upcoming decline.

Another important issue for homebuyers is that retail lenders will no longer be able to resell loans over $625,500 to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They will either have to portfolio these loans in-house or find a private investor to purchase them. Privately-backed jumbo loans typically require a down payment of about 30 percent of the home’s sale price, instead of the standard 20 percent necessary for smaller loan amounts. While this asks more upfront of the homebuyer, it adds security for the funding investor. These lower loan limits will leave approximately $10 billion more in loans for private investors to manage and they have already prepared to fill the gap when the government backs down. This is evident with data from the fourth quarter of 2010, which shows that private investors originated more loans in the traditional jumbo market than did government agencies. Investors are ready for this change since jumbo loans tend to be safer and more profitable. Until 2008, all home loans over $417,000 were considered jumbo loans, but in part of the stimulus package in the wake of the housing collapse,

While regulations and guidelines continue to change, it is important to also consider a cash transaction, which is generally a wise financial decision. With the deadline looming, homebuyers may want to act now to purchase that luxury or waterfront property. The wide array of available properties and current favorable interest rates create an attractive opportunity to purchase the home of your dreams. To qualify for the current FHA home loan limits, the mortgage must close prior to October 1. It is best to take advantage of these maximum loan amounts well in advance of that date to ensure your home loan will close before the deadline.

Landscape Design Expertise it’s the subtle nuances that make the difference


he evening draws you outside, the weather perfect, a soft breeze is blowing and, perhaps, the children are playing happily on the lawn. What completes this beautiful picture? It is the frame . . . the way you have chosen to landscape your yard. Houston’s well-known landscape architects Bill Prewett and Tom Read say landscaping can be as simple or as complex as you choose to make it. But, as with art, it is the unique touches, the subtle nuances that expertise brings to the tableau that makes one landscape stand out from those that surround it. 10

Classic properties International

The team at Prewett Read & Associates appreciates that there is so much more to a landscape than just aesthetics, which is one reason American Luxury Estates management is spotlighting this firm as one of the best in the country. A well-designed landscape will also: • Enhance the overall livability of your home. • Create a visually relaxing setting that can filter from view distracting off-site intrusions. • Improve the value of your property. Bill and Tom’s combined 50 years of experience in the landscape field have given Prewett Read & Associates a well-respected tradition for designing some of Houston’s finest landscapes. Along the way, they have built a well-deserved reputation for providing clients with a smooth journey from concept to completion. The client’s wishes and lifestyle demands guide the two landscape architects in their development of a high quality design plan that will provide immediate satisfaction and ensure long-term enjoyment and ease of maintenance. Bill and Tom’s goal is to establish a lifelong relationship based on a commitment to the client’s property, neighbors and community, always with a focus on the client’s budget, schedules and other lifestyle demands. Landscape architecture, to a professional, means working with natural features in such a way that the whole becomes more attractive and more functional. Landscape architecture is a creative art utilizing living plants and hardscapes, along with anticipating natural forces that might impact the “canvas” in years to come. Bill and Tom’s original, creative planting designs are complemented

by expertise in bed preparation, planting, grasswork, grading, tree planting, irrigation and drainage. Integral to creating a long-term client relationship, Bill and Tom believe, is providing a wide range of additional landscape features, including: • • • • • •

Swimming pools Fountains Summer kitchens Custom ironwork Landscape lighting Garden structures, trellises, arbors and fences.

Additional design, construction and installation options can include driveways, sidewalks, footpaths, steps, landings, walls, paving, masonry and stonework. A high priority is also placed on intruding as little as possible on the client’s daily routine, while maintaining a neat and presentable job site during work-in-progress. Once the project is complete, Pewett Read & Associates can customdesign maintenance schedules to meet individual client needs. Crews are available to do bedwork, mulching, weeding, mowing, pruning, fertilizing, additional seasonal color, specific problem treatments, general clean up and special event preparation.

Chiaroscuro (English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊəroʊ/, Italian: [kjarosˈkuːro] "light-dark") in art is characterized by strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition. -- Wikipedia.


tate-of-the-art home lighting — indoors and out — has undergone tremendous advances in the past decade, so much so that the latest technologies are now essential elements in both estimating a home’s value and providing the ultimate in visual comfort, mood setting and security. Even beyond this, says Tom Kretzschmar of Illuminations Lighting Design, one of Texas’ leading lighting specialization teams, clients are now far more savvy about the esoteric aspects of lighting, such as the use of chiaroscuro and other more subtle effects. Just as a new homeowner inspects the foundation of a home before purchasing it, so also should he be aware of, and demand, the latest in programmable lighting systems as well as lighting technology, says Kretzschmar whose company has been recognized as one of the state’s top firms for over 30 years. Superior lighting systems must overlay safe, solid advanced electrical systems to create functional, practical arrays that also provide decorative and aesthetic appeal. New, user-friendly control systems make programming lighting inside and out merely a matter of “pushing a button” — provided you have the most updated equipment. An Illuminations signature lighting design uses every chandelier, lantern, sconce — every up light and every down light inside and out — to both set a mood and ensure that every space is utilized to its maximum potential.


The benefits of lighting are numerous — whether in a new home or for remodeling. Kretzchmar says expertly installed lighting can and should: • Substantially increase the sale value of a home and landscape. • Be a vital component of safety and security measures. • Enhance valuable assets such as fine art, intricate indoor and outdoor architectural features — if done with the eye of an artist and the proper equipment to assure the safety and protection of such treasures. • Sculpt spaces and help create an infinite palate of different moods, often turning flat, harsh or uninviting areas into attractive vignettes. • Mold and blend colors, textures, forms and shadows creatively to produce a desired effect. • Provide the most effective route to uniting a home’s exterior with both formal and natural landscapes. • Expand usage of areas, particularly outdoors. • Help conserve energy. Lighting design has become a discipline of its own, Kretzschmar warns. It is difficult, if not impossible, for architects, interior designers, contractors or even engineers to keep up with all the latest available technological advances in such a specific area. New technologies, for example, adjust lighting levels differently in many separate sites, based on multiple factors, with a simple automatic program.

Classic properties International

“Gone are the days of providing a few extra circuits, looping the telephone wire from room to room or installing simple dimmer controls,” Kretzschmar says. Even though basic troubleshooting is still an essential need, keypads and touch screens have replaced traditional switches. Standby generators are the norm, not the exception. It is important for homeowners and potential homebuyers to remember that when one of these contracting professionals recommends using a lighting consultant, they are not showing weakness or lack of knowledge. On the contrary, they are recognizing the client’s discriminating taste and want the project to achieve its full potential. Illuminations Lighting Design uses residential lighting’s underlying electrical grid in much the same way as a builder uses concrete — a foundation on which all subsequent creative work must be anchored. Ideally, Kretzschmar said, the lighting expert should be brought in at the beginning of a project or before the home is built/purchased. That way, a sound foundation can be established on which to create not only an immediate lighting system, but one on which future advances can more easily be incorporated. However, experienced experts such as those at Illumininations Lighting Design can incorporate more modern equipment into existing systems, or even into situations where no lighting design was ever installed. Improving the lighting is an effective technique often used by homeowners wishing to update a home for a faster, more lucrative sale. Today’s electrical contractors must be able to understand and manage a plethora of subsystems that include everything from emergency generators to lighting control systems. Whatever the situation, Kretzschmar says, it is essential that lighting systems be custom-designed. They must fit with the lifestyles of those who will be utilizing them. A follow-up maintenance arrangement is also crucial to maintain the high level of enjoyment and technical efficiency. Lighting assumes an added role in this era of expanded outdoor living, when so often landscapes are truly enjoyed mainly in the evening. Fantasies of light in previously darkened grounds will draw one outdoors, extending those enjoyable hours. Perhaps the most beautifully sculptured dramas are created at night, when wonderful shapes and shadows add to the natural beauty of pools, fountains and pathways under the nighttime sky. “No tree is too high,” Kretzschmar adds with a smile. At the same time, he warns, just as when creating expert and effective lighting of valuable art indoors, special care must be taken never to endanger trees and other valuable plant life. With the latest technologies, it is possible to conceal lights, wires and junction boxes while allowing for tree growth and expansion. Illuminations Lighting Design’s expert, experienced staff — including more than 30 licensed electricians — works with both residential and commercial clients.

Big Canoe awarded “ 2011 Community of the Year” by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association.


North Georgia’s Big Canoe® is the ideal choice. By Eric Snider


HE SECOND HOME, once just a dream for so many, is now within the realistic grasp of an ever-increasing number of Americans. Are you a dreamer … or a doer?

Due to a convergence of factors, the timing has never been better to make that second home a reality. Simply put, housing prices remain affordable, housing selection is plentiful and interests rates are at historic lows. It’s been more than 30 years since there was such a perfect storm of buying opportunity. Now is the time to lock in that future retirement home at today’s prices … and enjoy it right away. BIG CANOE, located in the undulating foothills of the North Georgia Appalachians just an hour from Atlanta, is a gorgeous gated community filled with lush homes that meld into a forested canopy. With its abundance of amenities and active lifestyle, Big Canoe is a vibrant, yearround community, with roughly 60 percent fulltime residents. But Big Canoe has long been a popular destination for second homes because it fulfills one of the most important issues: Location. Experts agree that buying a second home within an accessible distance of your primary residence is crucial. A Polynesian paradise might strike a romantic chord, but having a place you’ll actually use is far more valuable. Big Canoe is within easy driving distance of Atlanta International Airport, one of the biggest hubs in the world. And while the community is close to a major city, one whiff of the fresh mountain air, a stroll on its 22 miles of hiking trails

or a gaze over one of the lakes makes it feel like you’re a million miles away. BABY BOOMERS are far and away the biggest market of second-home owners. Studies have shown that their top priorities for buying are: • Establishing a family retreat. • Eventually turning it into their primary residence for retirement and family fun. The baby boom generation — its senior members now reaching retirement age — is certainly not bound for the rocking chair. Among boomers’ predominant goals is maintaining a vigorous, healthy lifestyle. You can hardly do better on that count than Big Canoe. The community features a 27-hole championship golf course with mountain peaks as a backdrop. The 16,000-square-foot fitness center is state of the art. Add in the swim club, hiking trails, tennis center, fishing and boating, and Big Canoe presents enough recreational options to satisfy anyone. And that goes for kids and grandkids too. Enhancing the flexibility of the secondhome lifestyle, Big Canoe residents can use amenities on either an a la carte basis or pay on an annual fee basis. Adding to the fun, Big Canoe offers a myriad of social opportunities, including dinners at the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti overlooking the 9th fairway of the Creek Course, as well as several other fine restaurants nearby. The community also features 50-plus vibrant, established clubs — from mah jongg to men’s pool shooters — as well as charitable organizations. In all, it’s easy to make new friends and associates at Big Canoe.

And easy to find quality medical care. The community is 15 minutes away from Piedmont Mountainside Hospital and 30 minutes from Northside Hospital. WHETHER YOU USE a second home as a regular weekend retreat or as a vacation spot/rental property, one thing is for sure: you do not want to worry about it when you’re away. To that end, Big Canoe features a round-the-clock security force. The Big Canoe Property Owners Association and the still-active developer, Big Canoe Company, have worked jointly for over 23 years. Big Canoe Company, which has zero debt, is a robust developer, making certain that the community stays current, fresh and viable. Big Canoe Company is actively building new neighborhoods within the community’s expansive 8,000-plus acres. Combined with existing neighborhoods, Big Canoe offers homes in a wide range of price points, from $300,000 to more than $3-million. People throughout the country are increasingly aware of the benefits of owning a second home. As more and more become doers and not just dreamers, this perfect convergence of buying opportunity is certain to ebb. Housing stock will tighten, prices will go up, interests rates will rise — it’s inevitable. Now’s the time to make that second home a reality. For more information:; 866-579-3336; 770-893-2733. 15

The Bay Islands in the Western Caribbean offer some of the most unspoiled amenities of the Caribbean. One of these islands is Roatan, where tropical forests, cloudless skies, pristine beaches and an azure ocean that is home to an amazing coral reef all combine to envelop one in a world that many would describe as paradise. It is here on Roatan that a visionary engineer named Dan Taylor discovered the perfect locale to develop a community second to none in design and quality. Using his experience in creating projects the world over, he saw on Roatan an opportunity to build a residential development designed for those who are used to the finest things in life. Thus began the odyssey that grew into what is now known internationally as Keyhole Bay. Keyhole Bay encompasses the intimate beach in the “keyhole,” single family estate home sites, and luxury townhomes and condominiums. Soon to take its rightful place in the master scheme is Keyhole Village, which will include a shopping mall, medical and attorneys’ offices, grocery and boutiques – anything to make the residents’ lives as easy and carefree as possible.

An Idyllic World on Roatan Island The luxury condominiums are the focal point of a private Caribbean community catering only to those who are accustomed to surrounding themselves with the finest of everything. The Condominiums at Keyhole Bay are priced from just $372,000 for a spacious one-bedroom 1,500

square foot home to just over $1 million for the elegant 3,900 square foot penthouse suite. A typical townhouse in The Condominiums at Keyhole Bay is built with only the finest-grade materials, hand-crafted inside and out, set in a sea of manicured lawns, towering trees and lush vegetation. One of these, a two-story, 3,675 square foot seaside home, brings new meaning to the term “luxurious living.” Ensconced on the first and second floors of the nearly completed Tarvisio building, the lavish townhouse has two spacious bedrooms, with two and a half baths. On the first floor, the domed 10' x 10' entrance foyer opens into a 17' x 22' Great Room, with hand-laid travertine floors and walls ascending a full 24 feet up into the second floor loft. The Great Room continues on the outside of sliding window walls leading to a column-surrounded patio. The stateof-the-art kitchen is equipped with gleaming stainless steel appliances, hand-crafted cabinets of South American white teak, and a peninsula crowned with Spanish granite. The kitchen adjoins an expansive dining area crowned by a massive dome and bounded by massive arches. The second floor of this picturesque townhouse continues the Keyhole Bay keystone of elegance with a 16' x 16' master bedroom that opens onto a generous 481 square foot private balcony. From here, you not only can hear the sound of the rolling ocean, you can see the cresting waves as you enjoy your morning latte. Recently, the Chairman of Real Property Marketing Group, George Lane, visited Roatan and was thoroughly impressed with the Keyhole Bay development. Says Lane: “Rarely have I seen such care taken in the creation of a project. Dan Taylor’s painstaking efforts and commitment to quality ensure that Keyhole Bay is nothing short of first class.” Still not convinced? There’s nothing that proves the old adage that “seeing is believing.” To experience the Keyhole Bay lifestyle, consider a visit to the relaxing island of Roatan and judge for yourself what others have already discovered – “this is the place I want to call ‘home.’” Please visit or Roatan/index.php, or call our US number 228-533-2001 for additional information.

Cove Hollow East Hampton, New York Didn’t we just love the Sixties? The British gave us Beatles. Detroit gave us Motown. Star Trek beamed into our living rooms. Some of us burned our bras, some of us marched and many of us wished we had gone to Woodstock or landed on the moon. And in the middle of that seminal decade, a quintessential one-story beach house was completed on 1.25 acres in the heart of Georgica. Decades later, that same four-bedroom residence with heated Gunite pool, await a new owner to ponder the possibilities. Ripe for renovation? Sure.
