Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search and check out the community info here: http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Tampa-Florida/community-info/

According to the the Hillsborough County Tax report this property would be outside the 1% flood plane. It would mean that flooding would be a rare occurrence. Rare does not mean a flood could not happen. It is up to your lender if they require flood insurance.. The good news is if the property is in an area with 1% chance of flooding, the flood insurance is relatively inexpensive. Regular home owners insurance does not cover water damage and flood insurance would.... more
The monthly condo fee is $393 per month... seems a bit high.
There is a tenant that is living there so 24 hours notice is requested for any showings.
Still interested with the high HOA fees?
Also with a condo you will need a substantial downpayment if you need to get a mortgage. Expect 25% down.
Ask your Realtor to show you if you're ready to buy and are willing to pay the high monthly fees.

Daniel, your question(s) do not make sense. 4045 N Himes is owned by Tampa Bay Television. The link you have included refreshes to 13418 Eudora Place. The last time this property was sold in 2004.
Your posting is challenging to figure out what your intent was when posting the question.

One of the unfortunate things about today's present Tampa Bay real estate market is that there are no averages. Townhomes and villas in the Carrollwood area have been on the market anywhere from two weeks to one year, all based on many qualities of the property. For example, condition of the home, neighborhood, HOA fees and dues but the main reason for it to sell or stay on the market is price. Carrollwood area townhomes and villas are on the upswing in sales but not as much availability right now.
As a lifelong resident of the Carrollwood area, I have seen that area manage well through the UPS and downs of the economy. If you would like some more info, pls contact me.... more
This is a pre-foreclosure, Short Sale.
On a Short Sale the asking price may or may not be in the realm of possibilities of being approved to sell by the lender.
The $180k asking price was NOT approved and the buyer who went under contract in Dec of last year backed out of the deal when the "required" sale price determined by the lender (based on the lender's appraisal or broker price opinion) is $220k.
If you want to buy it at $220k you better hurry because once a short sale is actually "approved" they go quickly.
Most likely the Seller will not waste time with an offer below $220k--unless no buyer appears willing to pay that price after a few weeks. You may be able to get up to 3% of the sale price paid towards your closing costs, though.
So if you're not yet working with a Realtor and would like to see listings and also find bank owned (the best bargains in this market) you're welcome to sign up for a ListingBook account on my website:

If it's homepath it is not a foreclosure, it's now bank owned or an REO. Let your agent guide you here, but be ready to offer full or almost full price if you really want it. Around here they get several offers and then hit you with the Multiple Offer form so you can offer less but when you get the Multi Offer document you have to make your best offer. Let your agent guide you and I hope you have one that is experienced in these as they can be a rough ride.... more
Matt Andrews, with regard to which property type is better source for real estate investors? AGain, this depends upon the depth of your pockets. Typically, properties have four values, market value, property appraiser's value, assessed justed value and quick sale value. As an investor you want the quick sale value which could be 50 LTV.
I think disttressed properties are closely managed by large banks, government regulations and asset managers. Right now many investors have shifted to buying and selling mortgage notes. Another area of investment to consider are Tax Liens. You have to look at the property before investing but they could provide interesting return on your money.... more
I found a company that would partner with me and offer the services of an attornery and cpa as well as a dedicated "short sale specialist". The cost is $2,000.00 and we negotiate it into the contract and typically the bank will write it off. If not we simply move the cost to the buyer and it has worked out well.
This has been a great way to "outsource" my short sales while still gettng the short sale business.
I think that depends on your goals. Are you looking to flip or looking for rental income? For rental income calculate your CAP rates and determine your minimum CAP you are willing to accept.
If you want to flip it is just a matter of accurately estimating repair costs and after repair value and then back out your purchase price to obtain your desired profit. Any property can be flipped if you buy it at the right price.
Strongly consider location in your decision for either strategy.... more
