    Happy Monday from Annette Bohannon!

    Today, we’re going to look at the Median Sold Values of homes in a few zip codes in Pasco County. As we discussed last week median means “in the middle.”  So if you missed last week’s Market Monday here’s a quick overview. As an example, if 5 homes sold in a zip code for $200,000, $250,000, $300,000, $400,000 and $800,000, the Median Price would be the middle price — $300,000.

    On the other hand, Average Selling Price would be the sum of the selling prices of the 5 homes divided by 5, or $330,000.  Most real estate statisticians think median price is a more helpful way  to look at home prices in an area or zip code. It is not skewed as much when homes in the area sell at an extremely high or low price, like the $800,000 home in our example.

    Now let’s take a look at the price trends in some of Pasco County’s most popular areas.

    Tampa Lifestyle:

    New Pasco development will feature man-made lagoon

     

    Originally developed in Chile, Crystal Lagoons have been built in 60 countries ranging from Australia to Egypt — the largest is 30 acres. Metro President Greg Singleton said he wanted to offer a unique amenity that would differentiate his communities from other real estate projects. Park Place is the first of four such projects that will be featured in the Tampa market.

    “When you see them in person, it’s breathtaking,” he said. “What’s important is that the community is going to be affordable. The homes will be priced in the mid-$200,000s.”

     The lagoon would hold up to 18 million gallons of water. Singleton said the preliminary design calls for a water obstacle feature, a swim-up bar, volleyball courts, a waterslide tower and a boat launch. “You can kayak or paddleboard,” Singleton said. “You could even use a small sailboat.”

    How to Spot the Top Problems Home Sellers Try to Hide

    “All homeowners sign a disclosure document about their property so buyers know what they’re getting into; however, it can be very tempting for some to tell white lies or conveniently forget facts,” says Wendy Flynn, owner of Wendy Flynn Realty in College Station, TX. “In fact, a very large number of real estate lawsuits stem from owners misrepresenting their property.”

    Savvy home sellers turn to smart technology

    “A few hundred dollars will have an impact,” Schoenberg said. “The price of technology on these gadgets has come so far down.” She cited competition among the makers of smart door locks and other technologies. She also said buyers today will ask if the Wi-Fi is staying, just as they would have asked in the past about a chandelier or refrigerator.

    Mortgage rates plummet to lows not seen in more than a year

    “Mortgage rates this week registered the delayed impact of last week’s sharp drop in Treasury yields as the 30-year mortgage rate fell 12 basis points to 3.59 percent,” Sean Becketti, Freddie Mac chief economist, said in a statement.

    “This rate marks a new low for 2016 and matches last year’s low in February 2015. Low mortgage rates and a positive employment outlook should support a strong housing market in the second quarter of 2016.”
