Thank you and look forward to your call.
Get yourself an agent who uses listingbook.com if you like to do a bit of research yourself its the best site for it.
If your not interested in doing any of the legwork, just find an agent you feel comfortable with. As a buyer, an agent is your friend IMO. They will not cost you a penny, and they should have valuable insight into the market and values of the homes your looking at.
If your a cash buyer, you could consider the auctions, craigslist, ect, BUT in my opinion as a cash buyer myself your best bet in THIS market is to look at homes listed on the mls. As such your going to need an agent. Buying a home at the auction can be risky, even more so in this market with all the defective drywall.
Get an idea of what YOUR comfortable with spending a month, and look for a home in that range. If your a financed buyer your likely going to need to spend 40$ per sq ft or more for a 10 year old or newer 3/2/2. If your a cash buyer your looking at around 30-35$ per sq ft.
Good luck, IMO its a great time to buy. I just picked up an upgraded 2000+ sq ft pool home for 85k. If you have cash you cannot beat the deals in Lehigh.
There is a great opportunity for you and the other 2,000 buyers that have the same thing in mind. Many of the REO, bank owned and Fannie Mae properties have gone to the extra expense of making sure clean up has been done as well as replacing existing appliances, a/c's and water systems. There are also alot of flips on the market which have been totally refurbished including replacement of defective drywall.
If you would like the help of a skilled Lehigh Specialist then I will be happy to help you. Please enjoy the use of this website for the viewing the entire up to date information on the Florida Gulfcoast MLS. http://www.swfloridahomebuyer.listingbook.com
I am sure you will find your dream home and I will be available this week to set up showings so please give me a call.
