Gulf front beachy condos are well priced and those condos inland are now a steal. In some cases financing injects some complications. For an end user or long hold the opportunity is at hand. Of course, in all situations, read the fine print.

Hi, I was just in Treasure Island for a few weeks, there are great deals in many of the gulf coast areas. We looked in Madeira and Reddington as well.

Yes and No, Home prices increased almost 15% in Clearwater in 2013 .
Home values are slowly rising and inventory is still low
There are still some great opportunities but there are also a lot of over priced properties on the market trying to take advantage of a low inventory market to score a top dollar sale.
As a mid or long term investment you will very likely make a good investment if you buy it now. If you are considering buying a condo now as a short term investment I would advise you to be extremely cautious.
I am with Century 21 Coast to Coast / Clearwater/Sand Key, and I would be glad to assist you.
Good Luck

Buying for what reason....good time for some, bad time for others. You have to be very specific as to getting an answer to that question.

Should you wait? Maybe....depending on what you want. Over $300k, no. Over 500k, definitely not. (on the beach) Under 100k, yes, until the right deal comes along. We may see a dip in price points in the next few months.

The answer depends on the individual situation. If buying for the long term yes. If you may want or need to sell in the next 5 years no. There are great deals available in good complexes. I'll be glad to co-op with you.

It is an excellent time to buy a condo in Clearwater. The selection of available condos is fantastic and with interest rates still low (if you need to finance) now continues to be a buyers market locally. If you are a cash buyer it is a great time to take advantage of the market.
Good luck and if I can help please let me know.

Based on Real estate and Financial reports, the inventory goes down and raising number of sold Properties in Clearwater.
Buy low sell high is the rule.
