Hi Sharon, YES. It was just listed yesterday as a bank owned property (Bank of America). They won't let you resell for 60 days and they haven't posted any interior photos but I've been in this home and it was very cute but no telling now since the bank has it. People often strip the homes etc. There's no appliances listed so it looks like the owners stripped the appliances but that's only about 2500K to replace them all. Just priced for another client we have. No furnishings and says that it needs work so it may not be the bargain that one would think but definitely worth checking into.
Previous owner paid $122,500 back in 2001 and values are about 2001 right now. Two recent sales in 2013 for similar homes were each $150K. Would have to check specifics as to whether they were furnished, had appliances, were in turn-key condition, same sq ft etc but list price seems high. That's not a problem if you are getting bank financing but if you are paying cash, you would definitely want an appraisal. Don't buy into the hype, closed sales are still growing but new pendings are leveling off which could be an early indicator that sales are slowing down in spite of the fact that the media is reporting they are up. I explain that on my facebook page which some graphs if you want to check it out: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Unique-Properties-of-Florida/
I'd post a link to the full listing but it's so new that its not pulling up in the feed yet but I can send the full listing if you want to email me.
You caught it early which is the way to do it so just make sure you don't overpay.
All my best,
Deborah Orr, broker
