Relocating? Consider three things when moving to Tampa Bay

Determining the most desirable neighborhoods means considering three things..........
Convenience, Location and Price

What is most important to you? Pick one of the three and narrow your search from there.

Convenience: I recently began working with a couple who has rented for the past five years in the Feather Sound area of St. Petersburg, but have realized that there is no better time to buy a condominium in the Tampa/St. Pete area than now. They are getting ready to retire which means the maintenance of a home is something they want to avoid. Isn't that what retirement is all about?

These neighborhoods are located in a very convenient locations. They provide easy access to Tampa, St. Pete and major highways. Shopping and restaurants are all within a couple miles. For people who work at Raymond James Headquarters in St. Pete, or Franklin Templeton, the Feather Sound Community is an ideal location! Feather Sound is also 10 minutes to Tampa Int'l Airport and the Westshore Plaza Shopping mall.

Price: Although there are many great deals for all types of buyers today; buyer's who have the best chance of getting a great deal are able to pay cash and close quickly. My clients are in the driver's seat because they can do both! In this tight seller's market with almost a 2 year supply of housing inventory on the market Cash IS King! Every property on the market is negotiable; so ask for comparable properties sold with in the past year. Offer less and negotiate, negotiate....you are in the driver's seat.

As an experienced realtor who believes in showing properties matched to the buyers' needs, I was able to show them several properties in the Audubon Condominiums in Feather Sound and have located several more condos for them to preview as well in Clearwater.
