Prices are up, and time on the market has decreased by 18 percent, according to a local Realtor.
Land O' Lakes homes sales are up, and that has buyers and sellers moving quickly. "This time last year, there was a year's supply of homes on the market.There is only a two-a-half month supply now. Properties priced right, especially under $200,000, will have a heavy volume of viewings immediately upon being listed," Realtor Rene Van Hout of F.R.O.G. Realty Pros said. Many Realtors are hosting open houses the first few days after a home is listed, in order to accomodate the large number of showings, she said. Usually those properties will have multiple offers within days of going on the market. Home sales were up 12 percent nationally in January, the highest increase since 2005, Van Hout said. Pasco County's statistics showed an 8 percent…

There’s good news on the real estate front throughout America and right here in the Tampa Bay area. But, do you think the trend applies to Land O' Lakes?
After years of stagnation, real estate analysts are finally reporting some good news on the home front. According to Bloomberg, home prices rose more than analysts initially thought they would year-over-year in July. “The S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values in 20 cities increased 1.2 percent from July 2011, the biggest 12-month advance since August 2010, a report from the group showed today in New York,” Bloomberg reported. Analysts anticipated a 1.1 percent gain. While that .1 percent might not seem like a lot, it’s translating to seemingly good news in the Tampa Bay area. The Tampa Bay Times reported that local home sales were up 12 percent in July over reports from July 2011. The median sales price also grew by 8 percent, bringing…
