I am in the process of buying a 2bd 2bth condo in the Oxford Place development, closing early June. The great thing about Oxford Place is that anyone renting gets the benefit of some magnificent facilities including use of an extremely well equipped workout room, superb pools and a great clubhouse. The use of the workout room by itself provides an immediate significant saving for anyone who would otherwise need to join a gym.

Anyone interested in renting a condo in this area can contact me at

mkb5412, The property type that you select will determine your rates along with your credit history. To ascertain more specfic information, you would be best served to speak with a licensed insurance agent. As licensed realtors, we are not allowed to provide opinions regarding a field that is regulated and requires its own licensing criteria.

Hi bgongre,
Right now it seems like Fannie Mae has taken the property, which means it's an REO. It should be on the market pretty soon. If you are interested you can check the website where Fannie Mae has there properties listed for sale. At the same time the property will be listed with a real estate agent, so you should see a sign in front of the property as well. These properties when listed usually have a timeline where only owner occupants can submit offers during the 15 first days, after that investors can submit their offers. Take into account that fact if you are interested in submitting offers on such properties.
Please, don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Good Evening and thank you for your inquiry. There is an area that is South of Tampa, right around Ruskin that has million dollar views of the skyway bridge on the water...Bahia Beach. It may be right around 100k mark but it is breathtaking.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance or if you have any additional questions.

Wells Fargo is handling the Wachovia short sales efficiently these days, as long as the buyer and seller are cooperative. This sounds like it should be a quick short sale. Wells requires certain paperwork and affidavits which all parties must sign and return, along with the usual short sale paperwork from the seller. If all parties submit requested paperwork in a timely manner, it can take as little as 2 months. A lot depends on the seller, though. Keep in touch with your agent to see how the process is moving along. ... more

The answer to your question is YES!. There are a few single family homes priced $100,000 and under. There are many more condos priced $100,000 and under.

Consider what features are important to you besides the pool? As you add features the number of homes that meet your features list will diminish. Keep in mind that properties offering a lot of features at the $100,000 price point will create a lot of buy interest.

To capture the oppotunity when you find the house, meet with your lender and get pre approved. Jordan has left his contact information below. When you are pre approved you will have buying power which means you can write an offer and have it seriously considered by the Seller.

You can use my website with your smart phone. It works best with a smart phone. If you see something that you like send me a text. I will anticipate hearing from you.

To date I don't believe the oil spill has a direct correlation to pricing. I will however state that I've already had clients decide NOT to buy because of the fear of potenital oil on our beaches. This is certainly not out of the realm of possiblity! It may impact future prices, but keep in mind that even if we do see issues, it will eventually be cleaned up and restored. Waterfront property IS waterfront property...
