Reinventing Real Estate: Pioneering Redevelopment of 6709 Ridge Road Embodies the Future of Property Investment

PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- Lincoln Financial Services, an Orlando, Florida developer and visionary in the realm of property development, has announced the completion of its latest landmark project, the stunning transformation of 6709 Ridge Road. It was originally purchased out of receivership and reinvented through a $2.6 million investment. This property is now fully leased with an incredible mixture of tenants, including many doctors, attorneys, and technology companies, underscoring the remarkable value creation achieved through this endeavor.

Ridge Road's transformation is a testament to Lincoln Financial Services' unwavering commitment to innovative design, sustainability, and economic development. This notable venture not only signifies a promising win for the company but also amplifies its stature in the competitive real estate landscape.

"Our vision for Ridge Road was not just about renovating a building. We wanted to reimagine the entire space to create something meaningful for the community, as well as providing a lucrative return for our investors. This project has set a new standard for real estate redevelopment and we are proud to deliver on our promises," said Amanda Sheffield, Property Manager.

Lincoln Financial Services' proactive approach to redevelopment isn't only about financial returns. It's about reshaping communities, revitalizing neighborhoods, and creating spaces that are functional, aesthetically pleasing, and sustainable. "6709 was left for dead and was an eye sore for the community. We saw the great infill location and potential to create something great without adding to more urban sprawl. Our company seeks out ugly buildings in great locations that have been forgotten, and we take pride in putting together the local resources to reimagine what the building can be now." Alex Reece, Director.

Prime Goochland County, Virginia Development Land Up for Grabs at Auction

RICHMOND, Va. -- Town hall meetings focused on the future of Centerville in Goochland County reveal neighbors who are keenly aware of inevitable growth and development, with an expressed desire to "grow gracefully," according to Tranzon Key.

The Timmons Group created and presented the Centerville Small Area Plan, a vision to guide future development over the next 10-20 years with an eye to preserving local, rural flavor. "Short Pump is very close and convenient to us. Centerville does not want or need to look like Short Pump," is characteristic of refrains heard during public comment at these meetings.

Local residents are already seeing residential developments springing up - Reader's Branch and Mosaic are a couple of the newer ones, with the Parke and Kinloch as more mature subdivisions. And Goochlanders can't help but notice the recent sale of The Pickle Barrel Restaurant property for $1.6 million, the demise of the truck and Exxon dealers at Hockett and Broad Street Roads, and FOR SALE signs along the I-64 and 288 corridor. What will the future bring?

Luck Stone, the Federal Reserve, Wawa, Main Street Homes, D.R. Horton, Eagle Construction and others have been suitors for land parcels up for sale in the area, with more in the wings.

This could be a great time to pick up land still zoned for agricultural use, but in the bullseye of the Centerville area targeted for prime commercial development, and now, 70+ acres that fit the bill are up for auction on September 13th. Four parcels, north and south of Three Chopt Rd, with road frontage and electricity are being offered for sale to the highest bidder(s).

Revolutionizing Timeshare Cancellation: Introducing Online Courses as the Affordable and Transparent Alternative to Costly Services

PENANG, Malaysia -- Timeshare Cancellation Mastery, an innovative venture led by Wayne C. Robinson, a seasoned expert in the timeshare industry, has successfully completed its pilot program, marking a pivotal moment in the realm of timeshare cancellation solutions. With over 220 enthusiastic timeshare owners enrolled in their cutting-edge timeshare cancellation course, Robinson's brainchild is poised to redefine the industry by offering a faster, more transparent, and affordable alternative to conventional and expensive timeshare cancellation services.

As a former timeshare sales, marketing, and contracts professional, Wayne C. Robinson recognized a pressing need for a practical and accessible solution for those facing the burden of an unwanted timeshare.

"Timeshare owners often find themselves in a tough spot when it comes to cancelling their timeshares. The traditional services come with exorbitant costs, sometimes upwards of $10,000, making it an unrealistic option for many. That's where Timeshare Cancellation Mastery steps in," said Robinson.

Timeshare And Resort Developer Accountability (, led by co-founder Irene Parker, is championing the protection of seniors, particularly widows, and military personnel from predatory practices in the timeshare industry. Seniors, hindered by health issues, financial challenges, or spousal loss, and military personnel, facing security clearance risks due to timeshare loan defaults, are especially vulnerable. With the support of notable organizations like the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, TARDA aims to ensure fair treatment and legislative changes that prevent exploitation of these demographics by unscrupulous timeshare developers. Through their advocacy, TARDA is shedding light on the need for reform and accountability within the industry, offering hope to those affected by these issues.

"Timeshares pose a risk for any consumer, but for those in the military, a loan default can lead to a loss of security clearances, and possibly involuntary separation from service," said Irene Parker, co-founder of TARDA. Even without a loan, many developers require the member to pay $1,000 or more to give back a timeshare."

In the words of Robinson, the success of the pilot program speaks volumes: "Out of the 220 students who participated, not a single one has come back to me stating that their timeshare was not legally cancelled. I am confident that I have maintained a 100% success rate. Students have unlimited access to me, and while a few encountered challenges with resorts not accepting their cancellations initially, they ultimately succeeded in freeing themselves from the timeshare burden without harming their credit or facing legal repercussions."

"This course was perfect for my needs, and I am now empowered to cancel my timeshare deed without incurring high attorney's fees," said Celine Hermann, one of the course students. "A huge shout out to Wayne Robinson for putting this information together to help vulnerable consumers everywhere."

Robinson's diverse professional background includes being a licensed real estate agent in New Mexico and Pennsylvania, as well as a licensed timeshare salesperson in Nevada. He has facilitated sales across international boundaries, from Canada and Mexico to the Caribbean islands, gaining an unparalleled understanding of the timeshare landscape.

Wayne C. Robinson's extensive experience in the industry and his role as the author of the bestselling book, "Everything About Timeshares," which is now in its fourth edition, solidify his authority in the field. The book has gained a reputation as the definitive guide to the timeshare industry, reflecting Robinson's dedication to empowering individuals with knowledge.

However, Robinson's efforts to bring accessible timeshare cancellation solutions have faced resistance on social media platforms and timeshare owner sites, such as Redweek and Timeshare Users Group.

"It's ironic that I've been blocked from reaching out to those who genuinely seek ways to cancel their timeshares without succumbing to exorbitant fees. People need to realize that they possess the ability to take control. The timeshare industry and homeowners associations have perpetuated the misconception that owners are powerless to cancel. My students stand as proof that it's entirely possible to cancel a timeshare with the right knowledge. This is precisely what I impart in my courses."

Timeshare Cancellation Mastery's pilot program triumph and Wayne C. Robinson's unwavering commitment to empowering timeshare owners stand as a testament to the evolution of the industry. As more individuals discover this transformative solution, the traditional barriers set by costly services are poised to crumble, paving the way for a new era of accessible and transparent timeshare cancellations.

Seaside Consultants Offers Timeshare Exit Services to People in the U.S.

ENCINITAS, Calif. -- When they first sign up, a timeshare can feel like a dream to the person putting pen to paper. But as the reality of the cost sets in, it can start to look more like a nightmare. Fortunately, there's help. Seaside Consultants Group supports people in exploring their timeshare contract termination options.

With nearly a decade in business, the Group has maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). From their office in Encinitas, California, this team specializes in serving clients who signed contracts under pressure, were misinformed, and /or were misrepresented by representatives of the timeshare company.

LenderLogix Q2 2023 Homebuyer Intelligence Report Data Shows Slight Increase in Homebuying Activity Despite Affordability and Inventory Challenges

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- LenderLogix, a leading provider of mortgage point-of-sale and automation software for banks, credit unions, independent mortgage banks, and brokers, today announced the latest release of the Homebuyer Intelligence Report, a quarterly summary of insights into borrower behavior during the home buying process based on data collected by the LenderLogix suite of tools. The latest report covers data collected during the pre-approval and borrower application process during the second quarter (Q2) of 2023.


In Q2 2023, borrowers generated 58,927 pre-approval letters through LenderLogix's QuickQual pre-approval platform, an increase of nearly 11% over Q1. While the average number of borrower logins to QuickQual declined from 12 times in Q1 to 8 times in Q2, loan officers increased their number of pre-approved borrowers by 16% over the period to 28, up from 24 in Q2.

The average pre-approval letter loan amount in Q2 increased by 4% to $302,836 compared to Q1's average loan amount of $292,491. Additionally, the average sales price increased 5% from $334,022 in Q1 to $348,348 in Q2, resulting in an average down payment of roughly 13% versus 12.4% in Q1.

Conventional loans were again the most popular loan type for pre-approved borrowers, with its share remaining virtually unchanged at 71% versus 72% in Q1. Similarly, FHA pre-approval share remained steady at 22% versus 21% in Q1, as did VA (5%) and USDA share (1%).

"Increases in both pre-approval letters generated and average number of pre-approved borrowers per loan officer signal slight improvements in the homebuying market, which is an excellent sign for lenders struggling under recent market conditions," said LenderLogix Co-Founder and CEO Patrick O'Brien. "However, the rise in average sales price, loan amount and down payment indicate that it's only getting more expensive for borrowers to buy so lenders will need to equip themselves with the tools and resources necessary to make homebuying more affordable."

Borrower Conversion

Of the borrowers using QuickQual in Q2 2023, the average number of days between pre-approval and loan submission increased to 89.3 days, compared to 71 days in Q1. The most prolonged duration between pre-approval and application also increased from 622 days in Q1 to 994 days in Q2. The increased length between pre-approval and loan submission did not dissuade borrowers, as conversions from borrowers using QuickQual rose from 56% in Q1 to 58% in Q2, with those borrowers generating an average of 9 pre-approval letters before converting.

"Lack of inventory is certainly one of the main drivers behind the increase in time between when borrowers get pre-approved and when they submit a loan application, which only compounds the challenges facing today's buyers," O'Brien noted. "However, for the loan officers that remain diligent in their outreach to prospects and agents, that effort seemingly pays off. Thus, loan officers should adjust their expectations around the length of today's home search and increase communication during this time to optimize their conversion rate."

Data from the Homebuyer Intelligence Report is available to the industry free of charge. To learn more about LenderLogix, visit

LenderLogix leverages the four decades of firsthand mortgage origination and real estate experience of its executive team to design customized software and APIs to meet the needs of today's mortgage lenders.

Down Payment Resource Reports on Homebuyer Assistance Programs for People with Disabilities for Disability Pride Month

ATLANTA, Ga. -- In celebration of Disability Pride Month, Down Payment Resource (DPR) has issued a report on the 23 U.S. homebuyer assistance programs that are specifically designed to support people with disabilities and their family caregivers on their journey towards homeownership. While people with disabilities may be eligible for any of the 2,300-plus U.S. homebuyer assistance programs, this report sheds light on programs specially developed to promote accessibility and inclusivity for aspiring homeowners with disabilities.

For many people with disabilities, the dream of homeownership can feel out of reach. Financial limitations due to reduced employment opportunities or the need for additional support services and difficulty finding accessible housing are just a few common challenges.

An analysis of the 23 programs showcases the range of assistance available to promote homeownership for people with disabilities:

* Financial Assistance Range: The programs offer homebuyer assistance ranging from $10,000 to $109,986.

* Availability: The programs are offered in 12 states across the country.

* Family Caregiver Support: 11 programs specifically extend assistance to family caregivers of disabled individuals, recognizing their crucial role in the homeownership process.

* Accessibility Modifications: Funding from four programs can be utilized to support accessibility modifications, ensuring homes are tailored to the unique needs of individuals with disabilities.

* Layered Assistance: 14 programs can be combined with other homebuyer assistance programs, providing individuals with additional financial support and resources.

* Program Types: The homeownership assistance programs encompass various types, including four affordable first mortgages, 12 silent second mortgages, three soft seconds, one grant, one voucher program, one combined assistance program and one below market rate (BMR)/resale restriction program.

* Forgivable Programs: Four of the programs offer forgivable assistance, provided that all program conditions, such as owner-occupancy, are met, further alleviating financial burdens for aspiring homeowners.

"Homeownership provides individuals with disabilities and their caregivers with greater independence and empowerment," said Down Payment Resource founder and CEO Rob Chrane. "It allows them to have control over their living environment, make decisions regarding accessibility modifications and customize their homes to meet their unique needs. This autonomy fosters self-confidence, dignity and a greater sense of belonging within the community."

"My hope is that this report will raise awareness about the available programs that provide vital support to those who need it most," continued Chrane. "By promoting accessibility and inclusivity, we can help individuals with disabilities and their family caregivers unlock the door to homeownership and all the benefits it brings."
