Prices go up and then they go down. It has happened that way since God made dirt.
Communities with attributes such as waterfront, distance to downtown and golf courses hold value better and recover faster than communities with no value retention attributes.

If this community is like all the golf course communities in FL, the values are going to continue upward, until they go down. Is there really any other answer?

Now if you want to know what is most likely to happen in the next 18 months I would give Doug a call.

Probably not, unless all homes that come on market are in mint conditions. I have few examples examples for you.

1) 17 Copper Crest Ct. It took almost 5 months to sell at $325,000. Five months is a lot of time in a predominantly sellers market. Believe me, there were no shortage of buyers when this property was on market. This was priced at approximately $149 sq/ft and in mint condition.

2) 17 Rockrose Ct. This was overpriced at $350,000 then later reduced to $343,000. It took almost two months and price reduction to get an offer. The house is current pending, with signs that the buyer might not be well qualified because the sellers are still entertaining "backup offers." Again there were no shortage of buyers when this property was on market. This is currently priced at approximately $155 sq/ft, in mint condition, but outdated kitchen.

3) 17 Stonepine Ct. Although there were no shortage of buyers when this property was on market. This house didn't get any real serious offers. Original listed for $350,000 and later dropped to in $320,000 range. The condition of the house was below average and house was dirty. Last time I checked it was unsold and withdrawn from market.

4) 24 Indigo Oak Ct. This a short-sale also the house condition was below average and it recently sold for $119/sqft.

5) 24 Stonepine Ct. In comparison to all the recent sales, this house was an absolute gem. It came with big swimming pool, great landscape, and high-end upgrades (appliances, cabinets, fixtures). In comparison to all recent sales of houses big or small nothing can even close. My best estimate, is that these upgrades were easily north of $75,000. This house sold for $335,000 and within days of listing. It's price came to $165sq/ft. In my opinion that is the absolute top price. And I challenge any listing in Natomas Crossing to offer everything this house had.

Since there are lot of renters in Natomas Crossing, especially on Innovator Drive. Lot of affluent families who have big money to spend will not be coming to this area. Moreover, the school district is just average (maybe little below) so again you will not have too many buyers who are willing to pay higher than $160sq/ft coming to the area. In addition, the canals is also an eye-sore and the dry soil nearby causes lot of dust issues and regularly dirties your car.

A short answer for your question is no one knows. People can only speculate using the information they already have. However, if you don't see houses selling like hot cakes in that area when the interest rates are fairly low and prices are in par with median price, then I don't think price point will be favored especially if the Feds increase rates. If you want to sell, this is the time. You can double-check everything I said on Zillow, it's public information :).

Jane, ask yourself this question. Whats better, Getting paid for the work you did one time and that's it. or Getting paid for the work that others do over and over and over again.

See I like the MLM concept although Exit Realty is not MLM the concept is plainly easy to understand.

Here, the Exit plan

10% Sponsoring Residuals

When a salesperson is introduced to management and recruited into EXIT, each transaction that they close generates a bonus that's equivalent to 10% of the gross commissions earned by the recruit, payable to the individual (YOU) who sponsored them into the company. The bonus is paid via EXIT's head office, and not subtracted from the new recruit's commissions. And it continues perpetually for as long as the new recruit stays with EXIT and generates sales.

It gets BETTER

7% Retirement Residuals

Should an "EXIT" salesperson decide to retire from selling real estate, a "pension plan" is created from the sponsoring bonuses that he or she has established. Also, the retiring salesperson (YOU) retains the privilege of enhancing this pension plan while in retirement by continuing to sponsor salespeople into the company.


5% Beneficiary Residuals

The sponsoring bonuses you have created turn into a beneficiary residual providing added security for your family.

The best thing I like about EXIT Realty Plan is that all you do is INVITE a potential Realtor to meet with your Broker, and The Broker takes care of the rest -Presentation and all.

With EXIT Residuals, you can potentially earn much more than 100%!

The more people you sponsor into EXIT, the more you increase your residual income. EXIT Realty annually pays out many millions of dollars in residual bonus checks as a perpetual "thank you" for helping to build the company.

Now ask your self again whats better. working on one commission or residual multiple commissions.

Hi Frances,

You really didn't pose a question to us. Unless you are paying cash, buying any property is not likely to occur in two weeks.

Best of luck.
