This month in real estate shows us that the BEST DEALS for Buyers are still the Retail Sales where they get to negotiate with an actual Seller, not dealing with a Bank on a Foreclosure or a Short Sale. This is supported by a lower sales price to list price ratio across the board from Pinellas, Pasco & Hillsborough county(ies) by as much as 4% in savings! And while the interest rates are still at record lows, they're likely to start increasing in 2014 - so now, more than ever, is a great time to buy!!!!
