Result: Up to date: We have a few empty homes - make that quite a few...couple that with the new homes being built (because the builders have a quota to match,) there seems to be a load of homes for sale ...We are on catch-up mode - a few forclosed and short-sales are being purchased - .e.g. A home near the 1st tee has just sold for $70,000 + leins to pay - last year the same home was $170,000 (please correct me if I have that wrong.) But it gives you an idea of the diverse cost of buying a home here on TBG&CC...RESALES: Are picking up - GREAT! This is now a healthy sign..One can find a bargain now - but in a few years the margin will narrow because the new homes are going swiftly..Lennar and Hovnanian are great builders and working hard to sell their homes.Location plays a big part where one lives on TBG&CC ...backing onto a lake or conservation lot is snapped up quickly...so, if you are thinking of buying make it soon...Baby Boomers are multiplying and demand will come to the same level as supply within 2 years. Hope I have answered you question okay? Oh! If you do decide to purchase a home here - look out for the HOA and other membership costs - my advice is rent first and get a feel.
And, of course, there are those who have friends who have bought in other communities and are lured to a new community.
Having said that, the re-sale inventory is half what it was just a few years ago-when at any given time there were 100 homes for sale and now inventory has been holding steady in the 40's. Also, some of the inventory represent "new construction" of 2 major builders.
I hope that helps answer some reasons for sales in Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club.
