Biggest Drops

MLS 301682 Wilds Plantation Home for Sale

25 biggest price changes in Alachua real estate

The homes for sale that made this week’s list range from a breath-taking Barry Bullard Parade home in Wilds Plantation (now asking $799,000) to a condo in Rockwood Villas (asking $130,000)

The largest price reduction is for MLS 302866, a 60 acre property near LaCross.  After dropping their asking price by $176,000 they are now asking $699,000 for 60 acres with three buildings on the property.  That puts the asking price for the land between $11,000 and $8,000 depending on the value you attach to the improvements.

Under $200,000

7 homes for sale under $200,000 made the list this week.  1 of them is a short-sale in High Springs, 2 more are short sales in Gainesville, and 1 is the condo mentioned above.  Excluding the condo they average over 2,200 sqft with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, built in 1979.

Under $400,000

11 homes are asking between $200,000 and $400,000.  All but two of these listings are in the City of Gainesville.  Overall they average 3 bedrooms,  baths, and one half bath in over 2,700 square feet of living space.

Under $600,000

4 bedroom plus office, on 10 acres

4 bedroom plus office, on 10 acres - Oak Ridge Crossing

3 homes are asking between $400,000 and $600,000.  Two of them are in Gainesville and one is between Alachua & Gainesville.

The home for sale in Oak Ridge Crossing is actually one of our own listings, so I wanted to give it special mention here.  The owners just authorized a $30,000 price drop (down to $485,000)  so it is worth a fresh look.  The home is concrete block and was built in 2006.  There are 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, in addition there is a large office, formal dining room, and large garage.  The home is on 10 acres, which is mostly cleared and they have 3 horses on it at the moment – so it has many of the features that make life with horses easier (like water run out to the pasture).

Over $600,000

4 homes on the list are asking more than $600,000.   One is near LaCross and is mentioned above.   The others are luxury homes in Gainesville.  They are all extravagant homes – averaging 4 bedrooms and 4 baths with more than 4,000 square feet to stretch out in.  They each have their own special feature, such as golf course views.
