Lake City and Live Oak, Fl. Real Estate

Lake City / Live Oak, Fl. Real Estate Report for February, 2009 (Columbia and Suwannee County)

I have just received the February figures from The Lake City Board of Realtors comparing February 2008 to January 2009 for the Lake City, Fl. areas. In February 2008 there was 23 Homes sold and in February 2009 there was 33 homes sold. That is a positive 30%. Yea!

The good news for Home Buyers is in the same time frame the Median Sales Price went from $155,000 to $125,500. That is a negative 19% in price.

If you are a Home Buyer now is a good time to buy.

There was several Builders, Developers, Land owners and Realtors that attended in support of them stopping the Impact Fees.

Most of the Columbia County School Board Members where not for it, but The County Commissioners are all for it and has the final say. It looks like from the meeting, that the Impact Fees will stop for one year.
