Emotion happens and will continue to happen, the same way a parent who is disciplining a child will always still love that child, but isn't gushing with sentiment while they discipline.
Yes, sometimes it doesn't work out in a transaction and one moves on, and in real estate today easily may find something else.
Friends of mine made out better in their Sowal purchases, others didn't.
Someone on this Board, oh, it was Shelly , said to buy memorable experiences. That's what I did. I bought a lifestyle I never imagined, lifelong friends, great memories, some headaches along the way too,
My point is you just can't put a price tag on everything.
Looking up a home sellers cost basis is like sneaking around someones underwear drawer.
No, I think it will take getting the price down to about $165K-175K would be more realistic in terms of getting an offer.
You mention that there would be a $8,000 charge for the paving of the roads. That would seem very cheap for the entire subdivision. Do you mean that $8K is per lot owner?
Seems to me that lots in many places along 30A are generally selling (the few that are selling) in the range of 2003/2004 prices. Given that prices in the vicinity of this Surfside lot were selling in the low $100's back then, maybe you should lower the price to $150k or so to leave yourself a little bit of wiggle room for negotiation. That would still produce a profit on this particular piece of property of 300% plus. I don't think you would get a nibble at anywhere near $250k even though the lot is almost a half acre.
Any update on the road paving situation? They really are in bad shape. Any possibility of this becoming a gated community?
What about the best beach access points? I don't believe there is deeded
access - let me know if I'm wrong.
I have not heard anything recently about the road paving. Some issue with the HOA not being currently registered with the State that needed to be resolved was the last info I got
Dont really think that becoming gated will happen, but there's very little traffic in the neighborhood anyway.
