great buy on a Waterlefe pool home for sale 1900 sqft for 210,000 and other investment properties

Noteworthy home for sale in waterlefe golf and river club.  Just dropped to a below market price!

9814 Discovery Terrace 

Waterlefe Golf and Country Club

3bedroom 2 bath 2 car 1,969 sqft pool
This home has been on the market for a while, and the owners have just reduced the home 30,000 this weekend.  At 210,000 This will be the lowest priced "classic" home in waterlefe.  

In fact, this is priced 30,000 LESS than the original owner paid in 2001 new from the builder.  Truly 2000 pricing. 

The home is a bit plain inside, and the kitchen could use granite, maybe brick pavers on the lanai, but very livable condition, and in this price range it has no competition in waterlefe, or comparable bradenton neighborhoods like Heritage Harbour, River strand, or Greenfield Plantation.  

The home across the street is Pending 369,000.  400 sqft bigger, former model, and with a great view

This one, next door, shows better, and has a den, about the same size and view.  For 349,900.

I expect this home to sell quickly now that the owners have it priced very aggressively.  This is the little house on the block for sure, and I think has a ton of upside with a little investment.  A great home, vacation property, or even a rental home.

If you are interested follow the links for more info on my web site, 


There are a lot of great deals out there for straight investment.  Buying rental homes makes a lot of sense if they can produce a profit.  The rental market is very brisk, and there is a huge demand for quality rental properties.  With the huge amount of people losing their homes the demand for rentals has never been stronger.  

I have a condo at Bayshore on the Lake for 29,000 2 bedrooms 1 bath updated too.  Less than the cost of most cars, and they rent for 600-800 a month. These were selling for 100,000 plus a few years ago!


3040 Irving Street in Sarasota is a great buy for 85,000.  It's an approved short sale, and its pretty big over 2000 sqft.  Has a new metal roof, big fenced yard, quiet street, and travertine floors in the kitchen too!   Need some TLC and imagination, but what a great location, and low APPROVED SHORT SALE $$.

3040 Irving Street Sarasota, FL

312 Heritage Isles Way.  An awesome water and golf course view from the heated pool and spa.  Located in Stoneybrook.  This is a great choice if you don't need a full golf membership, and can save the 3,500 annual fees.  Just reduced it again now it's 239,000 A very good price given the view.  This is not a short sale.


Please feel free to forward any of these deals on to your friends, and feel free to call or email me if you would like more info or to schedule to see any of these homes.

January 2011 market update report for Manatee County homes for sale

The Manatee Real Estate market was moving despite our frigid temperatures.  The homes for sale in Bradenton showed signs of stability, and with the extreme cold that our northern neighbors having experienced I would predict a strong, and busy spring here in Manatee County's real estate market.
There has been a big spike in the amount of Pending sales for homes for sale in Manatee County. Up from 544 pending in December to 732 pending for homes for sale in January 2011.  That's a pretty big jump in offers written.
