There is a balanced market in Longleaf – there are about as many buyers as there are sellers. That’s good news for homeowners, and a sign that the market here is recovering.
There are 8 homes in Longleaf under contract waiting to close. 2 are built before 2010, however, these numbers are a bit skewed since they were either short sale or bank owned. They were asking $101 average per sq foot when they went under contract. The 6 remaining were asking $135 per sq ft when they went under contract. Should be interesting to see what all these actually close out for.

One of the million things you have to do before starting work is find a place to live. Most residents want a home near Shands. You know you’ll be busy and don’t want headaches so you want something that doesn’t require much maintenance. You also want a home that isn’t too expensive (you’re still paying off student loans) but in a safe & clean neighborhood.
