Brand new, luxury 5000 sf waterfront waterfront home for $399,000 in Tampabay

I just got an e mail from a buyer that is not from our area but wants to come down next week and buy a drop dead gorgeous waterfront mansion in the Tamabay area. He sent me the MLS numbers and the moment I saw the breathtaking pictures I realized that something MUST be wrong.

Here is the e mail I sent back to my buyer.

Hi ………..

Thanks for your e mail. You picked two very interesting properties.

The first one is in a very good area and close to everything BUT the $399,000 only buys you 1/6 of ownership. Is this something you might want?

The second one is a short sale and it is on the other site of Tampabay, away from most activities and about an hour away from the south beaches of Florida.  Also it is situated on a pond not open water.

Homes like the ones you picked Pinellas County on the water and within miles from the beach go for $1,600,000 and up, the sky is the limit.

For under $500,000 you typically get a 2 or 3 bedroom 2 bath one car garage around 1800 square feet waterfront that has been somewhat remodeled but has 8 foot ceilings and is about 40 years old.

Please advice

Have a great day

Anne

The internet is a beautiful thing and I love that buyers use it a lot to find homes but in the end you need a Realtor that KNOWS Tampabay and can tell you all the ins and out of finding and buying the right property.
