2 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo for Sale in Melbourne, Florida $24,000

I just got off the phone with a caller who was looking for a condo she saw on the Internet for sale in Melbourne, Florida.  It sounded like a great deal...two bedroom two bath condo in Florida for $24,000!

Unfortunately she, like many before her, relied on an inaccurate mega real estate website like Zillow.

If you are considering buying a home in Florida please contact a local real estate agent who has access to the local multiple listing service.  Realtors can provide current information and provide insight into the local market.

For example, in Melbourne, Florida, it is a seller's market. 

Prices are rising.  There is competition among buyers for move in ready properties.  And the inventory of distressed properties is low.

So while sites like Zillow, Trulia and others may provide information about an area and even links to local resources, remember to contact a local Realtors if you are seriously considering buying a home. 

Florida home sellers, call a real estate professional as well!
