Homes For Sale In Tampa

Tampa, FL is one of those rare, nationally coveted cities that offers the perfect balance of desirability and affordability. If you’re looking to make a move to Tampa, you’ll no doubt need to examine its recent market activity in order to gauge what you can afford.

However, when researching the Tampa real estate market conditions for August 2009, one must first take into consideration that there has been little month-over-month activity. In other words, if you’re looking for prices to drop a little more before buying, keep in mind that they may actually stay put.

Now, if you look at the market conditions in Tampa July 2009, you may notice figures that are not consistent with the “no month-over-month change” assertion. Why is that? Because for one, the July report was based on figures gathered over a two-month period. Make sense? Good! Let’s go to the August data:

Inventory  
Homes for Sale: 6,389
New Homes: 28
Foreclosures: 7,732

Median Price

Top Green Builders: Tampa

by brook

One of the most densely populated green home areas on the East Coast, Tampa has no shortage of green home communities – thanks to builder William Ryan Homes. With one community located in Lakeland and another in Seffner, both of which are adjacent to Tampa, FL, green homes from William Ryan Homes are a great way to go green without breaking the bank (the all new plans for these three communities start at $139,990, $189,990, and $199,990, respectively). Does this mean the homes are substandard? Hardly!

Green Homes In Tampa FL

There are a total of six energy efficient floorplans, ranging from 1,592-3,065 square feet. How does the builder make use of all this space? With 3-5 bedrooms, formal living areas and bonus rooms! Not to mention spacious master suites with designer master baths, and open kitchens (a hot ticket in new homes for sale) with 42” upper cabinetry. Need room for your rides and toys? These green homes in Tampa feature up to three car garages. Plus, as if the interior features aren’t enough, the communities are surrounded by lush landscaping and other attractive neighborhood features.

You’ve seen the great prices these green homes start at; but how do some extra incentives sound? If you stop in to any of the William Ryan offices to ask about Bridgewater, Camelia Estates, or The Hammocks at Kingsway, be sure to ask about their “choose your incentive” promotion (a $5,000 value!). The builder also encourages those who qualify to take advantage of the increased homestead exemption. If either of these are of interest to you, now is the best time to inquire. For more information on William Ryan Homes, a Tampa green home builder, contact them at 452 Arch Ridge Loop, Seffner, FL 33584, or by phone at (813) 677-6400. In Lakeland, stop in to 5647 Superior Drive, Lakeland, FL 33805, or call (863) 688-7402.

New Homes for Sale Near Tampa: Homebuyer Tax Credit Offer

by brook

Asbel Estates In Land O Lakes FL

Why does “new home” need to be synonymous with “large home?” It doesn’t! The truth is, although we often think of new homes for sale as being oversized houses on small land lots, there are plenty of new communities comprised of homes that are a practical, down-to-earth size for the average family. One such development is Asbel Estates in Land O’ Lakes, Florida, an MI Homes community near Tampa. 

Asbel Estates is a charming community of one and two story homes on conservation homesites. Complete with parks, ponds and tot lots, this community is ideal for first-time buyers, move-up buyers and empty nesters. Located in the desirable Pasco County School District, Asbel Estates is convenient to shops, restaurants, entertainment, Suncoast Parkway, Tampa and the Tampa airport.

Tampa New Homes For Sale

What isn’t Asbel Estates? It isn’t a series of identical big-box homes, rife with more bedrooms than buyers know what to do with. It is, however, a place for those who need a reasonably sized home at an affordable price. How affordable? Prices start at $149,990 for 1,308 square feet, and up to $289,990 for 3,393 square feet. Plus, with MI Homes' The Power of 8 promotion, another $8,000 in options - on top of the current (but soon ending) $8,000 homebuyer tax credit - is available to make buying even easier!

Could scaled-back homes be the next big trend? Perhaps prospective buyers should begin examining this as a viable option; after all, they may eventually be among the most readily available types of homes on the market.
