The National Association of REALTORS predicts a continued slow increase in nationwide real estate values. Others predict a worldwide economic recession. Who are you to believe when it comes to making decisions for your real estate investments? My team focuses on Pinellas barrier Island properties. Our 16 beach towns have unique characteristics that can either increase or decrease property values. Many factors influence whether you buy, sell, remodel or rent. Since I’m in the field every day assisting mostly sellers, I come across many decisions being made that are both uninformed and unwise. Sometimes, the more informed we are the more confused we become. Since any real estate opinion can be supported with facts, I think I can help you unconfused the facts to help you make the best real estate decisions for your family. Before the last real estate recession, I hosted 1-hour neighborhood discussion/information sessions for those contemplating a move. I offered information without obligation. These sessions were geared to barrier island properties mostly in zip code 33706, Pass-a-Grille, St. Pete Beach, Sunset Beach and Treasure Island. Most info also applies to properties in our other 12 beach towns. This year I’m hosting these informal sessions each Tuesday from 5.30 till 6.30 PM at our St. Pete Beach office, 5050 Gulf Blvd. If you want to join us, we ask only that you RSVP. Call or text me, 727 254-8144.    I guarantee there will be no sales pitch, we’ll start and end on time and give you very direct answers to tough and confusing challenges. I’ll bet I can earn your trust with truth about your options.
