Looking for Treasure Island Condo / Cottage on the ocean and of course trying to get a deal. Maybe even one that needs a little work. Plan to use Jan

Asked by chriscatt58, Treasure Island, FL Tue Aug 28, 2012

through mid-Feb. Question: has the market hit bottom and would it be a good investment that could be rented enough to stay in the black? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Currently there are 14 condos, townhouses available in Treasure Island or Madeira beach that are waterfront (gulf or intercoastal) under $200k ( range $111,000-199,900) with 2 bedrooms. Some currently have tenants. Monthly maintenance varies by amenities and exerior & flood insurance costs.

Inventory is low and the pendulum is starting to swing back towards the Seller's side. I think we will see prices going up by next year. We are beginning to get multiple offers more often again.

Are you currently looking for a home or just browsing on line for now? I have a free service called “Listingbook”, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS, which updates daily: new listings, price changes, solds & withdrawn listings, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know & I would be glad to set up your free Listingbook Account.

Since you live in the Tampa Bay area, I also have a free automated service called CITY (Curbside Info to You) available 24/7. I issue you a number you can call on ANY Real Estate For Sale sign and a computer reads the MLS information to you, from the street number & address for all ACTIVE MLS listings. If this would be helpful let me know. If you have a smart phone & TEXT "PAMELA" to 727-213-5142 it will give you a free mobile site. Bookmark it to you front page and use it anytime. Email me your cell phone & I'll registered it so you won't get annoying follow up calls. If you want to talk to me there is a prompt or you can call me on my cell. If you want to put it on multiple phones, I can put up to three numbers on one user name. Just send the numbers you want added. Put it in your favorites for quick access when you are driving around. I use it all the time.

I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
