It is a good general question that I just recently asked on the fly as well. The second answer you got was short and to the point - good answer. The first answer was sort of condescending. Yes, it was good times in 2007 but unless you lived in a cave you know what happened since then with housing. We're not in Kansas anymore as the saying goes. Anticipated prices is the pricing that you see at the gas pump, except you don't have much choice in that instance in what you pay. Homes, on the other hand, had better show something to justify the price increase when other homes have lost value the past few years. Look at comparisons very closely. If the realtor tells you about comparisons, instead of showing them to you, upgrades to that house also, etc., then be very cautious. "Well Presented" can be it is truly nice, or it is a good snow job of selling. Safety Harbor is pretty established, so its not like much has changed over these few years. If nothing has been upgraded as Terry mentioned - "FISH" around for something else worth the asking price and more in line with today's market.. The owners can ask whatever they want, but your the one buying, or not buying, and it is what you want that counts.
