It's happened to many of us. We've paid for gas at the pump only to later find out that our credit or debit card information has been hacked. The frustration sets in when you have to cancel your card and make a claim to recover those funds. Well, the good news is that all gas stations in Florida will have to install chip readers at the pumps by 2020. However, that is not so good of news for small, independently owned convenience store owners who will bear the upgrade expense of upward of $17,000 per pump.
It would be a dream come true for many West Volusia residents! A recent blurb in the West Volusia Beacon reports that Aldi has submitted an application for a building permit to the DeLand Building Department. The permit has been approved by the Building Department but is waiting for approval from the Fire Department.
The commercial real estate market in DeLand and throughout Central Florida is experiencing heavy growth. No one should ever trek the path of commercial real estate alone. There are many factors at play that necessitate a team of experts that can save you time and money. To help clients navigate through those sometimes murky waters, Swann Real Estate has strengthened its commercial division.
Have you ever wanted a heart-shaped steak to woo your Valentine? Or perhaps you’re looking for a variety of meats and steak cuts for your next backyard barbecue? DeLand has a new option to “meet” all of these needs.
For business owners, an important question that often goes unanswered is what is my business worth? Outside of home ownership, business ownership is typically the single most valuable asset that a person will own. Although there are ways to estimate your home value (your friendly neighborhood real estate broker, online services such as Zillow!, local property appraiser), how do you track the value of your business?
Business brokerage is an overlooked field in relation to traditional real estate. There is plenty of education and information available on traditional real estate, investment properties, approaches to property valuation, and general real estate market guidance. On the other hand, many commercial real estate brokerages don't work in the field or publish information relative to business brokerage. At Swann Real Estate, we want to provide this information to you. Let's start with three major factors that influence what your business is worth...
DeLand has become a hotspot for businesses big and small. It's home to large corporate companies such as Davita and Frontier, yet it is a great place for solopreneurs to find community to get their businesses up and running. Regardless of size, there is something about DeLand, especially the downtown area, that draws businesses in.
Recently, the Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency met to rank three plans to give new life to the old Volusia County Jail that sits on the block between W. New York Ave. and Georgia Ave. The project is expected to enhance the area near the Artisan Alley area, a popular area off Woodland Blvd.
The wait is finally over. Local fans can finally rejoice. Chipotle is open! The Mexican grill chain with a DeLand location at 2335 S. Woodland Blvd, prides itself on sourcing high quality ingredients and responsible farming. Those amazing burritos are complemented perfectly with their one-of-a-kind tortilla chips, perfect for dipping in salsa or guacamole. Chipotle in DeLand is open 10:45 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. seven days a week.
The purchase of a commercial property by an individual (for investment purposes) or business (for either investment or business operation purposes) can be filled with the potential for missing key information that can be very costly to the buyer. Purchasers of commercial real estate are typically considered to be sophisticated parties, and whatever consumer protection laws may exist in a state for the protection of residential home purchasers seldom apply, if ever, to a commercial real estate purchaser. The adage of “buyer beware” particularly applies to commercial real estate purchases and warrants careful application of due diligence procedures and checklists.
Some of the commercial projects that have been ongoing in DeLand have finally been completed or are near completion, just in time for the holidays. We thought we would provide you with a commercial construction update, holiday edition.
