Annette Lawrence answered:
Yes....and No.
Your question is on the front of the mind of every home owner and buyer.
On my blog I have created charts showing both price and SP/SF for communities in Dunedin and Palm Harbor, Fl. 40% of these communities show attributes of increasing value. The others are establishing bottom are still seeking. It will be a community dependent question.

Consult a real estate professional for the details regarding the communities in which you have interest. Data from aggregate websites and national trends are of NO value in this regard.

If you are serious about a home purchase or sale, you need to call a pro.

Best of success to you.

Oakland Park is a terrific place to live and offers many benefits to different demographics. We offer high end homes as well as more affordable homes for first time buyers. Every neighborhood has a different look and feel. I am happy to give a tour to my clients to help them determine which area is right for them. The architecture throughout Oakland Park is mainly South Florida Traditional/Ranch style. A large portion of the homes were built in the 1950s and 1960s. Many have the quaint charm of South Florida on the exterior with all the latest finishes and designer touches of the present. There are pockets of newer construction which reflects current building styles. These are more commonly found in townhomes. ... more

Parks Morgan answered:
Currently, market prices for single family homes have dropped which is concurrent with what is happening around South Florida. Offering less than the listing price is recommended at this time. Many sellers are willing to negotiate price and some may add additional incentives to buyers such as paying a portion of the buyer's closing costs. ... more
