2011 Real Estate Trends

Real Estate: Light at the End of the Tunnel

A client recently commented to me that he can finally see the light at the end of this long dark real estate tunnel; the only problem is that the light is from an oncoming freight train!  That pretty much describes the state of the current local real estate market.  While sales may be up prices remain down and foreclosures persist.  Its a buyer's market and a seller's nightmare.  Even with a reduction in local county impact fees for new homes, new home builders still can't hope to compete with the foreclosure resales and short sales.

Just When You Think Things are Getting Better...

Just When You Think Things Are Finally Getting Better...the latest findings show another downturn in home sales and property values throughout our area.  When is is going to end?  Can property prices go any lower?  Regretfully, it appears that there is another wave of foreclosures pending on the horizon that may bring prices even lower.  I'm afraid that until we see a real recovery in the local economy there is no end in sight yet.
Moves by the Pasco County Board of County Commissioners to lower impact fees in order to kick start new home construction are ill-conceived and appear to be nothing more than a misquided effort to appease developers and home builders.

2011 Real Estate Trends - Law Offices of Timothy G. Hayes, P.A.

Tim Hayes, Attorney at LawAs we start 2011 the real estate market both locally and statewide remains extremely depressed and all indications are that it will continue this way throughout 2011 and well into 2012.
Residential foreclosures remain at near record pace and as these residential properties are dumped back onto the local market they will continue to bring down residential real estate prices throughout the Tampa Bay area. 
We are also continuing to see upward trends in commercial foreclosures as well, especially in the stand alone office condo market.
