    Realtors(tm) advertising used houses on a public blog ? Do we see desperation ?

    I see we have reached a new low in the futile attempts of Realtors(tm) On Commission to sell the unwashed masses of sheeple here in Polk County these overpriced homes.

    Don’t buy into it. There will be blood in the streets; and very soon. Don’t be stupid and “catch a falling knife”. Median income in this county is about $35,000…which means that if we go with more traditional methods of determining affordability a 3/2 with a small lot and a garage should cost about 2-1/2 to 3 times median income…..in other words, about $ 87,500 to $ 105,000. Take that figure and see what it buys you. Maybe a “crack shack by the railroad track” if you are lucky.

    Wait it out folks. Capitulation by the banks and these “little Trumps” who own multiple houses that they “bought” with toxic no-money-down ARM’s is right around the corner.

    Go back and check the tax records. Offer a price equal to the amount the home you are interested in was selling (or assessed) for in 1999-2000…..Only a fool would offer a penny more.

    Better yet, wait it out. Bargains will be found everywhere in 2009-10. Good Luck !!

  3. Thanks for verifying your identity by email and thanks for your comment, though I wish you had chosen to sign it.

    Before I add my response, let me first correct your presumption. This article isn’t advertising.

    I contacted Ms Norris with the idea to make the New Listings maps. She supplies the data. I make the maps. She is gracious enough to add the information on median price, average size, etc. I am sure you could take the data and perform the same calculations. All in all, very fact based — without a hint of sales tactics…for or against buying.

    I believe the maps are a help to anyone looking to move to Lakeland. When we moved here it would have been very helpful to consult a map, on our own, to get an understanding of “listed” prices in the areas. Of course, everyone understands listed prices are simply a guide. You’re welcome to make any offer you like. The homeowner is equally free to accept or reject the offer.

    That said, let’s talk about your comment. Frankly, I would have found your opinions in paragraphs three through six much easier to digest if you had stated them without the insults and incorrect information of paragraphs one and two.

    You don’t believe anyone should buy in this current market. You think people should go back and check eight year old tax records. Finally, you advise people to wait for bargains in the coming months.

    The rest was hyperbole, incorrect assumptions, and simple insults.

    As I said, thanks for commenting.
