The Trend for 2016

All the current marketing data indicates the window of opportunity is NOW!  Buyers are here, the higher the demand, the better chance to sell your property. Many of these buyers are drawn here looking for new homes, have reconsidered and are taking advantage of there-sale opportunities mostly due to location, and view.

Currently as of Thursday January 21, 2016, Tampa Bay Golf & CC has 36 active homes on the market.  FYI 10009 Gap Wedge located on the 16th Fairway and priced at $225,000 and is a Home not a Villareceived multiple offers and became a bidding war. It is currently under contract for more than the listing price.

K-Hovnanian is driving buyers into Tampa Bay and currently has no premium lots left. With a few tips to prepare the sale of your home, the value will be surprisingly handsome.


Most of the homes listed in October thru December reduced their price as much as 40%. And four (4) withdrew their home from the market.  We currently have 12 homes under contract and seven (7) have sold, 4 of which were NEW K-Hovnanian homes.  Many properties have listed at extremely high prices, in nice locations but have no upgrades and the listing agent’s use these specifically to generate buyers off Zillow, Trulia, and It’s deceptive and not fair to a seller, unless they are aware of the reason behind their homes high listing price.

I had six (6) transactions in October and anyone that contacted me to sell; I suggested waiting until mid-January 2016 before placing on the market. The more days a home advertises on the market the less interest a buyer may have.  I have two new listings and several that are preparing their home for market.
