While I understand your frustration, I don't think that prices have fallen 10 to 15% in 3 months. I own several properties in South Tampa, (I thought the world was flat and the edge was Kennedy blvd until the age of 9)
My advice is simple. Look and research, find a REALTOR whom you trust and can honestly say understands the market and trends. Then find the right home.
If you would like a link or two to market trends in your area, email me and I will provide them. These are unbiased numbers and one must remember that SOUTH TAMPA is a whole different ballgame. While numbers were creeping up (15% / annum) in other parts of the county, there were jumping up (28% / annum) in South Tampa.
Good Luck and I hope you find your dream.
