Aside from the fact that about a third of the homes listed for sale on the Internet aren't really for sale (that's why it's good you're here!), there's also an overwhelming amount of information about the Tampa Bay real estate market and the industry as a whole. Some of things you're hearing about probably include home values, the mortgage process, finding a reputable lender, buying foreclosures, buying short sales, determining value, negotiating offers, property inspections, appraisal issues, escrow accounts, repair concerns, insurance, flood insurance and what's happening with interest rates, sinkholes, homeowners associations, deed restrictions, and more.
If you are considering a waterfront property (my specialty) perhaps for the first time, there are other things to think about including the coastal construction control line, building and permitting issues, seawalls, boat lifts, davits ... oh the list could go on forever!
When you work with me, I will take the time to learn exactly what you're looking for in a home, or, if you're not quite sure, we can work together to help define the ideal home for you given current market conditions. I'd enjoy getting to know you and assisting with familiarizing you about some or all of those issues and processes listed above that you may have questions about. My goal is always to make the entire home buying process as painless as possible, in fact, most of my client friends report back that it was actually a lot of fun. Bottom line, it's important that you're comfortable about every decision you'll be making about your investment.
I will provide you with a written guarantee that you will receive my 100% loyalty and 100% confidentiality when I represent you on the purchase of your new home or investment property. Less than 5 percent of real estate agents and Realtors in Tampa Bay will offer this guaranty.
If you are relocating and not familiar with the area, we'll help you discover neighborhoods, architectural styles, schools, recreation, distances to beaches, you name it. Our updated 2018 Tampa Bay Relocation Guide will be off the presses soon, so stay tuned for that. (In the mean time, if you'd like a copy of the old version we'll send it to you - just go to the Contact Us section or e-mail us at Homes@PinellasPeach.com).
