Are There Still Great Deals In Our Area?There are still terrific opportunities coming on the market all the time. And with banks getting ready to release more foreclosed properties onto the market, we should continue to see some deals.But buyers who believe they can offer pennies on the dollar for good houses in great neighborhoods are probably going to be somewhat disappointed. 2012 is not 2008, and most properties are well-priced. Sellers are pretty aware now of what they can hope to get for their home, and most are not still holding onto pre-recession ideas of their home's value.Most of all, in spite of new foreclosures hitting the market, there is not a huge inventory out there. If you are ready to buy, be ready to compete for the great deals.Get pre-approved, be ready to put down a good deposit with your offer and make a realistic offer based on recent comps.July 09 2012 - Clearwater11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
