Jonathan Klurfeld, Esq. answered:
I agree, the rental market in Florida is just not cheap anymore. Rents have skyrocketed the last 2-3 years by many times over in some areas due to the housing crisis where people are only left with the option to rent. The average 1 bedroom in Tampa (and most of south FL) is over $1,000. Tampa average is $1019 as of last month. ... more

Many locations just to east of Temple Terrace is USDA eligible. The USDA program is great for first time buyers that have limited cash saved - 100% financing and allows for the home seller to pay closing costs. Reach out to us below if we can help.

St James Realty, anticipating that your referencing individual units, then each individual unit that carries a distressed mortgage would be handled by that particular lende or lenders, and also add in the condo association. many of the condo associations have filed law suits against the distressed units and are reluctant to negotiate any means of partial settlement. i have experienced files with clear to close by the lenders, fannie mae etc and the association wants a bottom line which is more than can be squeezed out of the transaction. thus is falls apart.

if you are referencing, developer owned units than different lenders/banks have their own procedures of disposing of these units singlely or in bulk. these would be a commercial transaction and you would have to follow a different path to find out who the lender/bank was and how they are disposing of the units. in this situation, investors purchase units at a low price, pay all outstanding taxes, condo and attorney fees on the units. basically they bring the unit current.

About $1500 to $1800, depending on the age and size of the home. But you can buy a home in that area for less than that in a monthly payment. Give me a call or check out my website.

Alma Kee answered:
List your townhouse with a Realtor as a lease-option on the Realtor MLS system. Then you'll have access to the most efficient way to market your towhouse. You'll have to pay a commission but hopefully you'll find someone who has a vested interest to take over your payments quicker and ultimately end in a sale and at a higher-than market price. The Tampa Bay marketplace is flooded with townhouses and condos. ... more

Jim Johnson answered:
Lease options are not a best case scenario in any market. If you are willing to do it though, listing the property with a REALTOR member of the MLS, and including a lease option in the terms of sale will get you your best results. ... more
