Listing Home for Sale Raises Additional Concerns About Candidate Goetz

Goetz HomeAccording to World For Sale By Owner, the home at 3038 Cleveland Heights Blvd is for sale.

In this economy many are looking to sell their homes. However, it is unusual for a person running for city commission to have his or her home on the market.

It appears to be the case for this 2009 election as the home for sale at 3038 Cleveland Heights is occupied by James Goetz, candidate for the Lakeland City Commission.

Golf course within walking distance (right down the block). Very quiet area with plenty to do. Right in the middle of Tampa and Orlando so you can have the best of both worlds. Creative financing always an option. Bring all offers.

The Ledger recently wrote a story about the creative registration of the home:

Property records show the home changed owners several times in April 2006. It went from the Green Family Group Trust No. 3038 to a St. Petersburg woman named Cavilyn Dial Keown then to something called the Loxahatchee Group, which Florida Department of State records show is the Goetz Foundation of Florida operating under another name. — The Ledger

Selling a home in the district you plan to represent isn’t against election laws. However, if elected Goetz must remain a resident of the district. I’m surprised he isn’t keeping it. It sounds lovely.

Beautiful and spacious corner lot. Oversized carport attached to the house. 2000 square foot mother in law suite on property as well. It is two stories. 1 full bath in the mother in law suite. Can use upstairs loft as living area for self or rent it out for additional income. Very comfortable and huge asset to the home. It is one of a kind for the area. House has been recently updated. There is new electric, new plumbing, brand new roofs for main house and back house, updated gardening features, tile look driveway, new flooring and refurbished hardwood flooring. A/C has recently been serviced.

  1. Chuck…I thought much better of you previous to this. You have never contacted me in regards to this and the home is in no way for sale. You are a much better reporter than this and this story appears totally fabricated for attention. What are the issues currently facing the city?

  3. As the link is still live, it is obvious the story isn’t fabricated.

    My calls to the number weren’t returned. I regret not publishing that fact.

    I will note in a follow-up that you’ve stated you’re not selling the house.

    Can you explain the listing?

  5. Instead of bantering back and forth on a public blog would you not think it more professional to speak in person? I requested this last week and my offer has not been taken up. I request this story be retracted at this time based on a improperly researched article resulting in libel. Thank you.

  7. I’ve posted your comments as my emails to you have gone unanswered. I didn’t want you to feel I was not presenting your comments.

    It is a fact the listing exists. It does appear the home is for sale. It is true I didn’t receive an answer from the number listed.

    In a follow-up I will note your quote: “The home is in no way for sale.” I will also note additional facts about the process.

    Now, if you’re prefer to continue off this forum, please respond to my emails.
