brandon homes for sale: Brandon Investment Homes - 04/18/13 04:31 PM
Brandon Investment Homes Observers of residential real estate nation-wide have started sounding a new upbeat note. It has to do with the effect of recent shifts in buying and selling — some of which may well affect Brandon investment Homes, as well.
Brandon investment real estate has always drawn Brandon residents seeking to profit by owning investment property close to home: properties they can monitor conveniently and with confidence. The one negative has been the assumed general neighborhood effect of widespread rental ownership. When rental home proportions rise within a community, there can be a gradual decline in the area. … (0 comments)

brandon homes for sale: Zeroing in on the Right Tampa Home for Sale - 04/15/13 12:50 PM
 

It was fascinating reading: especially if you currently have, or are looking for, a Tampa Bay home for sale. The New York Times’ headline was “After You Read the Listings, Your Agent Reads You.”
I thought that sounded sort of hokey — especially since I’m one of the agents who is supposed to be doing the ‘reading.’
I had to agree with one of the signs for reading a client’s reaction to a given home for sale. If their “progress from the hall…through the living room…through the dining room…to the kitchen takes 30 to 45 seconds…that’s not so good.” … (0 comments)

brandon homes for sale: 7 Things No One Tells First Time Homebuyers - 04/06/13 05:07 AM
What First Time Brandon Homebuyers Aren’t Told (Part 1) First time homebuyers in the Brandon area are told a lot of things — “Save your money,” their parents advise. “Location, location, location!” their friend’s friend cautions. Reasonable advice, for certain. But there are some important elements of the home buying process which a typical Brandon area first time homebuyer doesn’t usually hear. I’ve listed some of the most important ones, in no particular order:
Mortgage rates you see advertised aren’t usually what you get-  The banner ads are everywhere online: “3.2% rates!” “No money down!” But the truth is, mortgage rates … (7 comments)

brandon homes for sale: Action Plan Following a Tampa Short Sale - 03/25/13 05:51 AM
A Tampa Area Short Sale Can Aid the Seller, Too A Tampa area short sale represents real value for the homebuyer, of course. But to some extent, it is also a boon to the seller. Being able to unload a property that’s underwater helps avoid the most dire credit consequences of a Tampa foreclosure. But lingering credit damage can still result from any short sale -- if the short seller allows it to happen. Should you find yourself in the short sale situation, be proactive in protecting your credit score. You will put yourself in a position to re-enter the market sooner than … (0 comments)

brandon homes for sale: Tampa Home’s ‘Snowball Effect’ Not Likely to Melt Soon - 03/08/13 06:38 AM

The Weather Channel has nothing to do with it. What’s happening up in the ski resorts, likewise. The ‘snowball effect’ being discussed in print and on TV won’t soften anytime soon (even if the groundhog was right about winter being over)...
This is an economic snowball -- one that’s gathering momentum following what CNN’s Money website describes as “the best year for U.S. real estate market in five years.” Businesses that stand to benefit from growth in the Tampa Bay area housing market are watching closely.
The Wall Street Journal’s snowball report took form in last Monday’s Marketplace section, where the … (7 comments)

brandon homes for sale: Are Tampa Home Prices Predictions Reliable? - 03/01/13 05:41 AM
Home Prices Predictions Who doesn’t want to know what will happen in the future? That’s a very small group, for sure, since good planning is a cornerstone of good management -- for households as well as for organizations of every kind.
So, whenever Tampa Bay homeowners see headlines like “Home Prices Up ‘Unsustainable’ 5.9% in 2012,” above a MarketWatch article that explains that price growth is expected to slow,  they probably would like to gauge the reliability of the forecasters.
In this case, MarketWatch is part of the relatively stalwart Wall Street Journal, so credibility goes up. But closer examination finds that … (2 comments)

brandon homes for sale: Can A Tampa Neighborhood Affect a Homes Appraisal? - 02/16/13 11:09 AM
It's true: Bad neighbors can lower home values. Appraisers even have a term for bad neighborhoods and other troublesome hyperlocal issues that can affect property values: external obsolescence.
"I've seen many situations where external factors, such as living near a bad neighbor, can lower home values by more than 5 to 10 percent," said Florida Certified Residential Appraiser Jonathan Tipton, in a interview. "Homeowners should be aware of what is going on in their neighborhood and how others’ bad behaviors could affect their home’s value."
It is recommended that prospective homebuyer visit the street where they're considering buying at different times … (3 comments)

brandon homes for sale: Panther Trace in Riverview FL is Home to Sand Hill Cranes - 09/06/12 06:03 AM
I was in Panther Trace yesterday previewing some homes that are for sale for some friends of mine. There are many wetland conservation areas and  as I passed one of the wetlands,  I spotted two adults and two chick Sandhill Cranes. I pulled onto the side of Panther Trace Boulevard to capture a series of pictures as mom and dad Sandhill foraged for food.  The parents worked together, not only making sure the chicks were fed, but leading them to choice spots to learn how to grub.  More about the Sandhill Cranes further down.
