You must remember that Haile is a desirable location in the city. It is recommended to incoming professors and physicians by their peers, and it has a great deal of amenities. Restaurants, bars, shopping, business and personal services are all in this area. Sellers and realtors know this and if someone has a show stopper of a home, they will try and take advantage of the demand. Inthe end, the market determines whether the price is reasonable. ... more

the gardens apartments are located off NW 75th street 1.1 miles south from Newberry Rd (SR 26)

it depends on what part of UF you are going to.

if you are accessing the north side of campus (O'connell Center) then you would want to take newberry rd (sr 26) straight in...a distance of approx 7.1 miles with traffic passing through the oaks mall.

if you are accessing the south side of campus (Shands Hospital) then you MIGHT want to take newberry rd to i-75 south to archer rd. its 11 miles to shands teaching hospital.

it all depends on your drive times. there are all kinds of back roads to pick from depending on the traffic patterns. of course rush hours are always slower times to drive in any city or town.

the gardens apts are located in a great area. if you need any help, let me know.

The assessed value is not the value of the home. Feel free to ring me on my cell at 352-514-4596 for information on how to calculate the price on homes.

Hello Sharkiso, i do not expect home values to keep dropping. They are going to remain steady. When the u overall job market and economy begins to show steady significant improvement then you will start to see home values consistently begin to rise. I do not know the particulars of your condo or situation (for example the urgency of you needing the money)...but if you would like to sell the property at the highest price possible I would lean towards renting it out until the job market gets significantly better. In general right now is a better time to buy than to sell.

IF you are interested in puchasing a property anywhere in florida or refinancing your current mortgage, I have extremely low fixed mortgage rates and all the goverment loan programs whcih are the programs with the best loan terms. I make the loan approval process very simple and can the mortgage approved for you in 10 business days. You can obtain my contact info at

I so hope that you will work with a Buyers agent.... read below it may explain it a little better it is a suggestion in your best interest and I am sending it to you by the question you are asking her, when your buyers agent would be able to find all those things out for you !!!!
I am not a Real Estate Broker from your area of interest, but when I see a question like yours, then I always wonder why a Buyer anywhere is not working with an experienced local Realtor, a Buyers Agent, one who will work on behalf and in the very BEST interest of the Buyer, not only finding the properties, showing them, but also getting the Buyers pre-approved by a lender, so that they will buy within their limits and comfort zone, but there are so many details to pay attention to like the various terms of the offer, negotiations with the Seller, earnest moneys, inspection, appraisal issues, walk thru, estimates for repairs, market analysis for a property so that it will be a competitive offer and sooooo much more.

Buyers Agents are usually if the property is listed on the multiple listing services i.e. listed by a real estate company/brokerage paid by the Seller's side at the closing out of the Seller's proceeds, i.e.
the Buyers Agents services are free to you the Buyer, but your commitment and loyalty to one Buyers Agent will be required....

Give this some thought, as the questions you asked are concerned, your Buyers Agent will be able to get you all the answers, and more than that also what the assessments cover, as this is different for each condo, pets allowed or not etc. etc.

Robin "Kaley" Shorter answered:
The best way to price a home is a four-pronged approach with your Realtor:

1. Study the sold comparables (developing one or more CMAs as mentioned below) in order to see what homes an appraiser might use to appraise the home (important to know as many buyers choose to finance their purchase),
2. Construct several absorption rate charts to see statistically how long similar kinds and locations of homes in each price bracket are sitting on the market this year, and compare to your goals (how long you have to sell your home), and
3. Check what buyers can currently buy for your target price bracket, and position the home to stand out as a clear value among those choices.
4. Be willing to revisit sales stats and reposition your home in the market if the market is not responding to your home.

By doing this you will be ahead of the market curve and, if your home is an appealing, attractive product, it should sell within a month or so, if not a few days.

All of that aside, some home prices are set by sellers who need to meet their mortgage payoff. They may be willing to wait, seeking someone who will pay a higher price than might be expected, in order to avoid doing a short sale. Still other prices are set by a short sale or foreclosure bank who has done their own appraisal on the house and determined the price they will accept. These are just a few examples of what goes into home pricing.

crussell answered:
I'm not a real estate salesperson, but I am a long-time resident of gainesville.

Take my advice:

The best locations in G'ville for *grad* students (having been one myself) tend to be north of the University (especially north of 16th Ave), and west of 13th Street. There are a number of really good properties off of NW 23rd Ave. You can your pick of condos (though I'd avoid the Creek's Edge community) for sale or for rent. They tend to be nicer, newer properties. There's a LOT less traffic on that side of town, and tons of shopping. It's an easy bike ride to Campus, and most of 23rd is served by 2 bus lines that run straight to campus. ... more
