You would have to contact the local authorities regarding deceased a resident in a home either by natural causes or other. A local funeral home actually would be a good place to start to find out who exactly to contact for a definitive answer to that question. ... more

Temple Terrace is probably a high demand rental area because of USF. Also New Tampa is a good option (as long as you're not paying high CDD & HOA fees). You need an analytical Realtor to help you evaluate the expected rate of return.

Also you may be able to find a better bargain if you wait until May 1st if the first time homebuyer tax rebate program expires.

I'm hoping it will get extended to Sept 30th/Dec 31st closing but if it doesn't there will be less buyers competing for the same properties.

There are several active listings and even a short sale, preforeclosure, listing that is already completed. Find a Realtor to assist you and she/he can get financial information and do a lot of background work for you. It's free to you as the Seller usually compensates the Realtor. ... more

Hi Steve,

If you're a first time homebuyer, you can get 10% of the sale price (up to $8k) back when you file or amend your tax return. This money doesn't have to be repaid and if you've already filed you can file an amended return to get the cash quicker. You can't have owned a house within the past 3 years (and I believe there are some exceptions in divorce situations) to get the money. You can't get the money in advance so you'll still need at least 3.5% of the purchase price to get a mortgage.

Hope this helps.

Dear Mike,

Important question if you're planning to rent.

You can find out by searching the owner's name on the public records: To find the actual owner's name, you can go to and input the address.

You can search the actual MLS on my site (anonymously) for rentals:

Hope this helps.

That is a great question!

That information is not available at the click of the button, but I have done a quick analysis for you.

I have taken the last quarter of each years sales and averaged the sales price per square foot. Based on the simple and quick data search we find the following:

Q4 2008 3 sales at $81.42 per square foot

Q4 2007 4 sales at $102.32 per square foot

Q4 2006 2 sales at $119.07 per square foot

Q4 2005 6 sales at $121.80 per square foot

Now here is the interesting number:

Q4 2004 11 sales @ $81.75 per square foot.

In essence, one could buy a condo today in Temple Terrace at the same price as 2004.

It is important to understand that this is a general "trend" analysis. It does not take into account amenities, location or age of the building. But, it does give us our trend indicators.

I have taken a look at current listings available in Temple Terrace and the closest I have to the average recently sold price is listing T2335304. You can pull that listing up yourself at our web site or at at

Probably the "best" buy in Temple Terrace right now as far a a condo goes would be a foreclosed 1100 square feet, 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit listed for $75 a square foot. There is an older unit in a not gated community that is also bank owned with 1300 plus square feet for $66 a square foot.

I hope this is helpful to you in your research.
