tallahassee: Top Ten Blog Posts Over The Past Twelve Years - 06/17/19 07:33 AM
In just two weeks, I'll begin my 13th year on ActiveRain. Though I do not blog here as often as I did when I began, I still like to check-in from time to time to see which posts have best resonated with ActiveRain readers.
Over nearly twelve years, I have written nearly 3,000 posts which generated 4 million views on ActiveRain, which are some very strong numbers for somebody writing from a relatively small market area. I believe this is a great reason that today's blogging agents should start on ActiveRain.

tallahassee: Housing Market Could Mean Better Deal for Home Buyers - 10/26/17 07:33 AM
In Tallahassee, the inventory of homes for sale continues to decline. In a market equilibrium situation, there would be 6 months of inventory available. As of October 2017, there is an average of only 4 months of inventory available, with even less in the desirable northeast part of the city. With a smaller pool of available homes for sale, home buyers will look at new construction to fulfill their needs.
The Cost for New Construction
New construction comes at a premium though. In 2014, buyers were paying 54% more for a new home than they were for a previously owned house. Today, … (0 comments)

tallahassee: Do These Real Estate Agent Practices Really Help A Home Seller? - 06/20/16 12:55 AM
There are some real estate agent marketing practices that have been around a long time, some of them make sense, others not so much.
But there are several old tricks of the trade that should be ended, as I believe they cause more damage than good and lessen the experience of buyers who are searching houses for sale.
Do These Real Estate Agent Practices Really Help A Home Seller?Did you hire a real estate agent because they claimed to be a marketing genius who could expose your house better than everybody else? Well, perhaps you should have. The more people you can have bidding on your house, … (54 comments)

tallahassee: Now Is The Time To Move Your Homestead To A State With No Income Tax - 11/26/13 09:14 PM
The owners of WaterOak Plantation, an eighty acre estate situated on Lake McBride, have reduced their asking price to $5.3M.
In case you missed the press releases back in June when they decided to sell this icon of Tallahassee history, it's worth revisiting as an estate of this magnitude does not join the list of properties for sale very often in the Tallahassee real estate market.
History Of WaterOak Plantation
You can see the full slide show of WaterOak Plantation by visiting the dedicated website for the property.
This estate represents some of the earliest history of Tallahassee.

tallahassee: Google+ For Real Estate Is No Longer Optional - 10/09/13 11:09 PM
I have been doing a bit of research lately about using Google+ for real estate, and like any other "new" technology, I find it both fascinating and overwhelming at the same time.
I have decided to commit to bringing several articles to our readers to better explain Google+ [Follow Me Here] and why everybody should create an account in order to be part of Google's commitment to social networking.
For Century 21 Manausa and Associates, it is important that we continue to learn and grow our technological know-how, as 94% of buyers are using the internet so we have to continually … (3 comments)

tallahassee: Not All Neighborhoods Have Beaten The Distressed Home Wave - 09/23/13 11:04 PM
There is still a lot of distressed house sales activity in Killearn Acres, but this month's report shows improvement in unit sales (the number of houses selling each month).
As one of the most popular neighborhoods in Tallahassee, Killearn Acres represents the "median home price + 10%" crowd in Northeast Tallahassee.
Thus far in 2013, there have been 36 homes sold in Killearn Acres with an average sales price of $171K, and with average home values coming in at $99 per square foot (the lowest value of any of the top 10 neighborhoods in Tallahassee).

tallahassee: One Neighborhood Defies Market - Soars Beyond Peak Of Housing Bubble - 09/19/13 10:00 PM
Our latest Betton Neighborhood home sales report shows great news for homeowners in this popular NE Tallahassee neighborhood.
Demand has recovered completely, and now we are seeing the number of home sales exceed the levels recorded during the boom of the housing market. The secret is out ... there are some great value buys in Betton.
Currently, there are 14 houses for sale in Betton, and here is what buyers can expect:

Currently, the rate of house sales in the Betton neighborhoods is just over four per month, which exceeds all sales levels on record … (2 comments)

tallahassee: Piney Z House Sales On The Rise - 09/11/13 11:12 PM
I am happy to bring another positive Piney Z house sales report to the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog.
For so many years, our reports on this popular NE Tallahassee neighborhood showed declining home sales (even as others started to turn), so I am happy to show proof positive that Piney Z in Tallahassee is on the mend.
Thus far in 2013, there have been 38 house sales in Piney Z with an average price of $217K, an average value of $107 per square foot, and an average size of 1,920 square feet.

tallahassee: Justed Released Video: How To Interpret Real Estate Charts And Graphs - 08/12/13 10:22 PM
Aristotle once said that "a soul never thinks without a picture," thus I am quite sure he would have relied upon charts and graphs to better understand the housing market of his day.
OK, maybe not, but he would if he were around today.
Our Tallahassee Real Estate Blog is known to sport its fair share of real estate charts and graphs, so today I have released a short video on "How To Read Real Estate Graphs." I hope you enjoy the video and I hope it makes the thousands of pictures on our site help your soul to think.

tallahassee: Case Study Shows How To Explore Market In Detail To Uncover Fine Homes - 06/24/13 12:12 AM
If you are looking for a fine home in Tallahassee, I recommend a structured home buying process to ensure that you get an exceptional deal.
Anybody can just jump on a property search tool and look until they find a house that they like, but how do you find a fine home and a fine deal, all at the same time?
We can take a snapshot of the Tallahassee real estate market to see why working with the right tools can give you an insight not available to the typical buyer who merely works with "their friend."

tallahassee: What Will You Say 20 Years From Now About Today's Condominium Sales? - 05/10/13 12:06 AM
Everybody loves a sale, so why not a Tallahassee condominium sale featuring some of the best buys on downtown condominium units that we might ever see?
The "attached" housing market is beginning to recover nicely, and since the market bottom is likely behind us for good, homebuyers should be scouring the market for some great deals.

tallahassee: The Bettons Seem Toughest Against The Housing Market Storm - 06/18/12 08:35 PM
Every single neighborhood in Tallahassee has seen home values decline, but none will weather this tough housing market better than the Bettons (IMHO).
I have written reports on the Bettons (Betton Brook, Betton Estates, Betton Hill, Betton Hills, Betton Oaks, Betton Place, and Betton Woods) for many years, as these neighborhoods are not prone to some of the problems that newer subdivisions in Tallahassee must endure.
For example, we won't see continued building of new homes during a glutted buyers' market like we are seeing in Southwood and Bull Run. And with location, location, location working for the Bettons, they will … (2 comments)

tallahassee: Depreciation Has Created Home Buying Opportunities In Woodgate - 04/12/12 12:10 AM
Yesterday, a long-time reader asked why I had never written about Woodgate, a popular NE Tallahassee neighborhood.
I basically said that because I have limited time, I try to focus on the most-active neighborhoods in Tallahassee, but that I would take a quick look at home sales in Woodgate.
Currently, there are 6 homes for sale in Woodgate in the Tallahassee MLS, priced from $129,900 to $235,000. With only 15 homes sold in Woodgate in the 3 previous years, this means that Woodgate has a relative home supply exceeding 12 months.
This means if you want to sell a home in … (3 comments)
