Anyone experienced with this scenario and renting?? Would like to do a corporate rental if possible. Thanks
Here in Tampa it looks like we're entering a nice buyers' market (including New Port Richie). We have not seen the drastic drops in prices that the east coast or Naples has seen, but houses are taking longer to sell, prices are a little soft, and there's a lot of them on the market.
If you like it subtropical, this is a great place to be. The DW/realtor just got an offer on a nice small place up on New Port Richie, as a matter of fact, and it is going for a nice discount over the asking price.
Great idea to rent for a while to see if you like it.
