My husband and I are selling a home on Terra Ceia Island on the Gulf Coast. It is located south of St. Petersburg and in fact, as you go south over the Skyway Bridge, at the top, look to your right and you will see a body of land...that is Terra Ceia Island. Twenty minutes from St. Pete and thirty from Tampa and Sarasota. Our home is a two story Key West style, two bedroom, two bathroom with a four-car garage under the main living area with ten foot ceilings. It is on a canal lot surrounded by 298' of water and is only three houses from the open bay. No bridges to contend with. Terra Ceia has a definite casual lifestyle, with neighbors riding golf carts, bicycles, jogging or roller blading. The name Terra Ceia translates to "Land Heavenly" and it truly is! Our asking price is $399,000 with homes around us selling for million plus. Please look at our site on http://www.zillow.com, key in 34250 zip code and look for our address 1115 Bayshore Drive. If you have any questions, contact our email address. Good luck in your search for your Florida home. Kathy Riley, firstname.lastname@example.org

My parents live on Madeira Beach and are starting to see some really great values (for buyers) in their area. Personally, my wife and I are considering a move closer to water in the next year or so. (We're in Saint Petersburg now). I would say this is great time to buy.
The housing market has corrected and prices have leveled.
You have a tremendous inventory from which to choose.
If you would like me to set you up on the Password Protected Home Buyer's Scouting Report, I'll be happy to do so.
That will give you prices, pictures, addresses, and directions to all the homes in the market within your parameters directly from the MLS. And will update you via email of new offerings coming on the market as well as price reductions. It's much more comprehensive and current than realtor.com
Just email me and I'll set you up on this if you would like.
