Are you having trouble finding a home in your price range?
Are you a Realtor having trouble finding a home for your customer?
Today more than any time in Florida history, homebuyers are having trouble finding a perfect home in their price range
There are many factors that make this impossible in today’s home market:
- Inventory- It is a seller’s market for homes that have already been renovated. Investors are buying bank-owned properties, fixing them up and listing them at peak pricing for the market
- They housing market has turned in Florida and rebounded. Most homes that are in “great shape” sell immediately when they hit the market or have multiple offers within a few days
- Housing prices have gone up. In Tampa and Miami, the average sales price has jumped 10-13% over the last 12 months and some neighborhoods are up over 20% for the last 36 months
- Fannie Mae and other bank-owned properties have strategically held on to properties to keep home values up and their strategy has worked
- REALITY- If you are looking for a home in the $80,000 to $200,000 in most markets… you are not going to find a home that you like!
We suggest a solution that works in EVERY MARKET and in EVERY MARKET ENVIRONMENT!
Instead of finding a house “in perfect shape” for $250,000…find the house listed at $210,000 that needs a roof and some updating!
Don’t look for properties in your "price range", look for properties that are lower that need work!!!!
