Buy a Home for the Holidays!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with EXIT Creative Realty

We're almost to the end of November and things are beginning to heat up.  An article on Thanksgiving day said that the Sarasota/Bradenton MSA (market share area) posted the BEST numbers in Florida.  We were down 5% from the 3Q 2006 sales, but the State had an average overall decrease of 29%!

As we near the January 29th primary election, the ballot amendment that "fixes" the problems of the Save our Homes amendment (passed in early 90's), I believe the "window" for opportunity for Buyers is narrowing.  I know that there are a lot of foreclosures and short sale properties, BUT, the amendment (if passed) will free up thousands of homeowners that are "locked" into their homes because of the tax benefits that they are enjoying.

The amendment HAS to pass for Florida's economic livelihood to come back in 2008 and beyond.  There are many industries that feed off people moving around the state.

If you're an out-of-towner looking into Florida Real Estate...look to Sarasota/Bradenton for future gains and a wonderful lifestyle.  Sarasota is known as being the "Cultural Coast" and we have many amenities to keep you busy enjoying our wonderful climate.

Why not buy a "Home for the Holidays"???  You'll be glad you did!
