If the home is for sale, your listing agent can manually update the photos if they have claimed the listing under their account. If your home is not for sale, you will not be able to update any archived photos. Hope this helps. ... more

Not in all parts of Oldsmar. I would check with your insurance company or the FEMA website to see if a particular home is in a Flood Zone or not.

Looking at listings in the local MLS for Gull Aire Village shows a variety of HOA fee's, $30 and up, but many at that amount. Some of the listings also show a Monthly Maintenance fee which is in addition to the HOA. I would think in that type of community that there is an HOA fee and maintenance fee on all of the properties and some agents have not included the amounts in their listings. ... more

I looked up the two townhomes you inquired about. # 39 is active /contract that is why the public
still sees it as an active listing.
#50 did not come up under any of the criteria including withdrawn.
If it is bank owned it is possible the bank is waiting for the certificate of title which is needed before
they can list it for sale.

If there is anything else I can help you with please dont hesitate to contact me directly.
There is only one other unit for sale -1235 sq. ft 2 bed/2.5 bath listed for $94900.00

If you like , I can set you up on a search for that complex in particular and you will be automatically
notified when new properties come available.

Thank you for your inquiry,

As with much of the Tampa Bay area, prices have dropped considerably in the Shoreview area of Oldsmar. The neighborhood was primarily built during the 1982-84 time frame and some of the properties show their age, but many are neat and well maintained. Are you looking for an investment property or to purchase for a primary or second home to escape the Philadelphia winters? ... more

New Parents,

First, call a professional and have the damage repaired and the termites treated.

Second, check to see if there was anything you could have done to be aware of the problem.

Third, fix it, learn from it and enjoy raising your family in your new home.

Was there anything in the sellers home disclosure? How about your home inspection?

The sellers property disclosure is required and required to be accurate. Please realize that it would be possible to be unaware of the problem until the termite situation results in damage and could be difficult to say that the seller "knew". That would depend on information that I do not have.

The other protection that you have is your home inspection before closing. Did you have one done? Even if you did not contract a termite, a home inspecter should recognize termites as well as wood rot in his inspection.

As far as any legal rights and the law, your best source of information is an attorney--protect yourself--do consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate.

Hi William:

The term resale is used to describe a property that is not brand new. The property has had at least one owner and possibly several depending its age.

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

Hello SAS:
Regarding Oldsmar. The best neighborhood is East Lake Woodlands because of all the conservation lots (added privacy, lots of trees), a golf course and excellent resale history. Of course, it is also more expensive (built mostly in the 80s). Additional neighborhoods to consider would be the Woods of Forest Lakes (mostly 2 stories, smaller lots more 90s), Bay Arbor 1990-2000) and the Preserve of Forest Lakes. The schools have good ratings in Oldsmar and East Lake. See the county site for more info at
I have never been in the Abbey apartmentsbut it is very close to Forest Lakes Blvd which is a busy road and it is also close to an industrial park. Depending on your budget, you can probably do better.
Hope this is helpful. Anything else you would like to know?

There is usually more to value than $ per sq ft. Condition of the unit, upgrades or not & location all play into the mix. End units are usually worth more than interior units. A Realtor familiar with the market in Oldsmar can help you. $100 per sq for an opening bd may not be a bad place to start unless the units selling at $115 were in poor condition and this is in mint condition. ... more
