The Tampa Bay area as a whole has exceptional growth prospects
Bradenton, FL (PRWEB) March 30, 2010
Leading Bradenton, FL Realtor Joe Braman reports that the Bradenton real estate market is showing encouraging signs of recovery, with Lakewood Ranch Homes still attracting buyers and investors despite the current economic slowdown. The Bradenton area has been growing steadily for the past several years, a trend that is likely to continue in the future and one that can give confidence to investors looking for a long-term rise in value of Bradenton homes.
The county seat of Manatee County, Bradenton is in the South Tampa Bay area and is known for its high quality of life and low cost of living. Lakewood Ranch, which lies in an unincorporated area just beyond the city limits, is one of the greater Bradenton area’s growth hotspots. The master-planned community, which is purportedly the largest green-certified community in the country, extends over 8,500 acres and includes both residential and commercial areas.
“Lakewood Ranch and the Bradenton area as a whole offer something that’s simply invaluable,” says Braman, “and that is an outstanding quality of life.” The myriad lifestyle options here are one of the region’s biggest draws, if not the biggest, and are the main reason many new homeowners cite for their having invested in Bradenton real estate. “The Tampa Bay area as a whole has exceptional growth prospects,” says Braman, “the location is unbeatable, the climate ideal and there are facilities and infrastructure already in place. Moreover, people here are already taking steps to ensure that smart growth principles are followed, which in turn ensures the continuation of the way of life that makes the area so appealing to begin with.”
Currently, economic conditions have made the home prices here the lowest that they have been in years, something that has already attracted investors, as well as previously priced-out homebuyers. “We are starting to see a stabilization of prices which could indicate an uptick in prices in the near future,” says Braman, “but there are still quite a few great deals out there today. If you’re looking for properties that offer the best value for the dollar, you will find more than a few options in Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch.”
