We have just received our updated market figures for the first quarter of 2009 and prices are 40% lower than one year ago, but the number of homes sold has increased, and inventory is down. No one can say for certain if this is the bottom but local economists are saying if this isn't the bottom we should be there by this summer. There are 80 homes presently for sale on the MLS sytem between 100 and 120,000 in North Port .
If you would send me more criteria on what it is you are looking for, I would be happy to start working with you, to find a new home.

It depends on the property - in Florida we base it on the county's appraised value of the home. Also, it makes a difference whether or not it's in an incorporated city; cities will impose additional tax.

The general rule of thumb - but don't quote it - is 1.25 mils, or 1.25%.

Hi Lee,

Not sure about fees in Canada, but here in North Texas, they are approximately, 1. Home Inspection $200~$300 (depends on size), 2. Survey $400 +/- for normal residential size lot, 3. Appraisal $300~$400

I would be interested in hearing how our fees compare to yours, so please share when you find out.

PNC means the property is under contract and the listing has been changed to Pending (closing). If you are interested in a particular property and it it has gone PNC there may still be an opportunity to submit an offer if it is continuing to be shown for back-ups. If your offer is accepted it would go into second position to be looked at if the primary contract fell through for something like the primary buyer not being able to obtain financing.

If you are looking to purchase "hire" a Realtor to represent you. They can answer questions such as this and many more while finding you just the right home.

Good luck.

Hi Lee,

Good question! I live in North Port and sell and list a lot of foreclosures. I can tell you that latley most of the homes that are in good condition and are priced reasonable are going for more than asking price. We have gotten several this past month and all of them have gone above list. I don't think there is a general rule as to how much you should offer but what your Realtor could do is to run some compariable properties and see what they have been selling for. This might give you a good indication of what price to expect on the home you are offering on.

Good luck with your search!

Hi Morris,

My partner and I live and work in North Port and would be happy to help you. Right now there are only two homes that fit that criteria exactly but both are short sales. What if you got a four bedroom home and then added a pool? Doing it this way you could probably stay way under your goal of 165K.

Here's a list of the four bedrooms homes in North Port:
Give us a call or email and we can go over your options!

Stacey Karp answered:
How much longer do you have on your lease? Are there any items discussing this process in case this happens?? Usually the process can take 3-6 mos on a whole, once in forclosure status is can be 30-90 days. It all depends on how fast the bank is planning to move. The best advice I can give you is start looking for another home now, dont wait for the ball to drop....can you perhaps purchase the house from the bank? ... more
