The home price or sq ft. price is what it is worth to you. Short Sales might appear to be cost effective, but you can wait for a long time and still not get the home and other properties will have been sold. There are a few properties in Connerton that are not short sales and that would provide you with the Tax Credit if you are eligible. Take a look at the home 21644 Billowy Jaunt Dr. It's one year new and has many upgrades. It's not a short sale.

The price of $85/sf seems like a fair market price.. The community of Connorton is one of the best in Pasco County. However, a short sale will take longer than a regular listed property and you will need lots of patience.

Get a professional to represent you with the transaction. It will pay in the long run to have an expert helping you. Prudential Tropical Realty will provide legal advice on the transaction. Contact me at:

As you have been previously advised a fair price is what you in fact think the Home is worth, as well as the Condition of the Home. As some Short Sales are not left in even fair condition. Connerton is a very nice Community and probably for the price you offer will be worth it in the long run. You can also go to the Pasco County Property Appraiser website and do a little research http://appraiser.pascogov.com/
Once you have decided on your offer don't be offended if the Lender doesn't accept as they know what there bottom line is and will come back with a counter. Should you have any further questions and/or concerns I would like to help.

A fair price is what you think the home is worth based upon previous sales and its' current condition. Having not evaluated the sales of homes in Connerton in the last 3 months for new homes and resale homes, this would take some research to come up with a range for you. Remember since Connerton is a 10 year project of which it is in its' 3rd to 4th year, the resale home is still in competition with the homes by the developers. I would walk into their model homes and see what they are pricing their homes at, cost of upgrades and lot location and compare it to the resale one. If the resale one is less than the cheapest new builder home and has a better lot location and more upgrades, than it is a good buy. If not, it is overpriced and I would either go buy a new one or put an offer into the resale one that allows for the differences. Never buy directly from the listing agent or the builder without a knowledgeable realtor to help you thru the purcase maize of short sales or new homes. You will not be protected since they do not work for you.
Hope this helps.

It is a steal at $85. You risk losing it by going below that price. Get a realtor to represent you through the transaction. It costs you nothing to have professional help.
