The following are the market sales statistics for Sanford, Seminole County, Florida for December 2008.  Sanford is made up of the zip codes of 32773 & 32771.  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. The median sales price means that 50% of the homes sold for more and 50% of the homes sold for less during a certain period of time - in other words, it's the midpoint of sale prices. So basically what this means, is that the median sales price is showing market activity in that it's specifically indicating which price range is more active. The average sales price, as opposed to the median sales price, is the total volume of sold properties divided by the numbe...

Sanford is the latest city in Central Florida to propose this.  The Cities of Deltona and Belle Isle passed similar ordinances in 2008.        Here is a link to the Sanford City Commission hearing info - it is listed on page 3 as ordinance # 4154.  The info on this page doesn't go into detail. But typically these type of proposals require that the property owner have a person located in the county designated as the "local representative" which means that a property owner that lives outside the county may have to hire a property manager - good thing for us Realtors(R), but just another burden on already struggling landlords.  Then they typically require an annual fee just like an occupational license.  Sometimes this fee is required every time a new lease agreement is signed.  Sometimes ...

Hi My Name is Stella Summers! I'm an 11 year old Tabby/Calico Cat... I sleep about 20.5 hours per day, I know... it takes a lot of discipline to sleep that much, but I'm a hard working house cat and I need my beauty sleep. When I'm not sleeping I like to play with string, watch the birds & squirrels, lick myself and help my mom blog... Many of the posts you read here on Active Rain were written with my help, I'm never far from her and even while I'm sleeping I inspire greatness.  That dog park blog she just wrote... that was my idea. Everyone is thinking about Christmas and what would make the perfect gift. Well, I'm here to help - there are plenty of cats and dogs that need a good home.  My mom and dad found me at the Seminole County Humane Society in Sanford.  It was love at first sig...

This is the weekly update of homes sales (townhomes & condominiums too) for Sanford Florida.  The "Just Sold" Sanford Florida Update includes the zip codes of 32771 & 32773. Sanford, Florida is located on the shores of Lake Monroe and is just 20 minutes from Downtown Orlando.  This week there were 9 single family home sales in Sanford.  The most notable sale was in Buckingham Estates in the Markham Woods Corridor.  6209 Hedgesparrows Lane was on the market for 11 days, considerable less time than the average 120 market days that most Seminole County homes sell in.  This home was not a short sale or foreclosure, it was a "standard" sale.  What I find most interesting about this home is that there are less expensive homes with the same square footage for sale in Buckingham Estates, but th...

For those living in Astor Farms, a community just west of I-4 in Sanford, Florida..it's time to bake a batch of cookies and head over to visit the new owners of 5060 Hawks Hammock Drive. The new owners of this fine property, Jim & Laura Tischler, hired me as their Buyer's Agent after a recommendation from their son (who I had represented several years ago on a purchase in another Sanford community). Jim and Laura had sold their home in Tampa and were looking for their next home in the Lake Mary/Sanford area. After a few weeks of serious looking at homes in Heathrow, Sylvan Lake Reserve, Lake Forest and other area communities, Astor Farms and this gem quickly became a favorite of the Tischler family. Built by Engle Homes, this Hawks Hammock abode is nestled on a nearly 1/2 acre lot and f...

Welcome back to the Sanford Florida Real Estate Market Update for October 2008.  The home sales (townhomes & condos too) information for Sanford Florida includes the zip codes of 32771 & 32773.  Sanford Florida is located less than 30 minutes North of Downtown Orlando and within a 45 minute drive of the beaches and theme parks.  Sanford Florida offers a diverse selection of housing opportunities from New Luxury Condos on Lake Monroe to homes in the Historic District with tree lined brick streets.  Yes, I know what you're thinking... Sales were down last month in Sanford, Florida.  But, what is really interesting is that October sales for 2007 are almost exactly the same, 38 homes sold in October 2007.  The pending sales continues to remain strong, but leads me to believe that many of th...

This week I had the opportunity to go out with my new clients. They are relocating here from Ft. Bragg and he is a Green Beret. They are newly weds and first time home buyers, my specialty. My hat goes off to him for his dedication and pride in his country and the danger he puts himself in to continue to keep our country free and safe. Since he is in the military he has a great program available to him, the VA Loan program which gives him 100% financing and no PMI. My clients love the downtown Sanford area where he is orginaly from and the look and feel of the historic homes. I have always been intrigued from a design and construction stand point of these homes and on one of our tours I found a great original piece of hardware on this home. The door and hinge's, but the hinge's are wha...

If you are looking for the most current information about single family homes, townhomes and condominiums that have sold in Sanford Florida - you have come to the right place.  The Sanford Florida Weekly Market Summary contains home sales information for the zip codes of 32771 & 32773.  There were 4 sales in Sanford, Florida last week.  Last week's financial markets were very volatile and quite possibly had an affect on the number of sales that closed.  These results are very disappointing and we were hoping to see more sales last week to continue the positive growth in the market that we saw last month. Please check back next week to see if this trend continues...   Sanford Florida Just Sold! - Single Family Homes Sold Neighborhood Street Address Living Area Bed & Bath Pool $175,000 Hi...
