The following are the market sales statistics for Altamonte Springs, Seminole County, Florida for October 2008. Altamonte Springs is made up of the zip codes of 32701 & 32714. For purposes of this analysis we are only splitting the data according to single-family homes vs, condominiums, townhomes and villas. A couple of definitions are in order.

  (click image to enlarge) The following are the market sales statistics for Altamonte Springs, Seminole County, Florida for August 2008.  Altamonte Springs is made up of the zip codes of 32701 & 32714.  For purposes of this analysis we are only splitting the data according to single-family homes vs, condominiums, townhomes and villas.   There needs to be a disclaimer here.  These stats are only as good as telling us what it being purchased and happening at a certain period in time.  Additionally, it needs to be fully understood that not only is real estate local, but it is hyper-local.  What this means is that the trends that we hear about are overall.  Let's put it this way, what's happening in one neighborhood, may not be realized in the neighborhood next door.    Additionally, these...

Florida real estate remains very hot; even though not everyone is convinced property from the Sunshine State is a smart buy.  First consider why there is an obvious advantage to Florida real estate in general.  Florida is a very popular state for tourism thanks to cities like Orlando and Tampa.  Much of Florida real estate involves beachfront properties that always sell for high figures.  This is because most vacationers don't want to travel for several miles just to get from their hotel to a nearby beach in the scorching summer-and are willing to pay for convenience.  There are a lot of reasons to run after new Florida real estate! Now consider a couple of disadvantages of buying Florida beachfront real estate.  Properties too close to the ocean face an increased risk of hurricane and ...
