Homes in South Tampa like those in any other neighborhood come in two categories – the new freshly built and the older existing ones. Although the choice is totally personal, there are some pros and cons that are worth considering. Let’s compare the two in the light of a few factors.
First is the neighborhood. The thing with purchasing a new home in South Tampa is that you will be entering a neighborhood that is not established. Trees will be young, landscape new and so on. On the other hand, existing homes have that impression of security and belonging.
Second is the maintenance and repair. Shiny new homes obviously do not require any repair whereas existing homes may have hidden problems.
Third are the existing features. New homes come quite bare and new home owners have to purchase their own security systems, do their own landscape and so on. Existing homes have been nurtured for years and probably have all the features you will need.
Lastly, new homes have a clean track record. You will not be able to determine how much the property will appreciate over the years. Older homes allow you the advantage of measuring the future market value of the property. Whichever of the two you opt for all boils down to what you are looking for and what you need.
