Home builders in the Tampa Bay Residential Market have completed homes available with some real savings like discounts off the original sales price and generous closing costs available to potential home buyers in communities like Plant City, Florida.  Plant City is located in eastern Hillsborough County, Florida, between Brandon and Lakeland.  Although most people believe that the city name is based on its rich agricultural history, it was actually named after prominent railroad developer, Henry B. Plant.  Plant City is also known as the winter strawberry capital of the world and hosts the annual Florida Strawberry Festival in the late winter (usually in February or early March), which also features some of the best country music performers in the business. This area offers a wide variety of residential properties from mobile homes to newer single family residences primarily in traditional subdivisions and historical single family homes in the Downtown Plant City.

Quality of education is one of the most important factors when moving to a new area.  As a local neighborhood expert, I can help you evaluate schools in the area that meet your unique needs. Plant City features some quality schools like Walden Lake Elementary.

I just sold this new single story, 5 BR/3 BA Home known as the “Sandpiper” in Plant City, Florida.  This is a $230K home that was purchased with a FHA Loan at 4.25%, which translates to a payment in the low $1,700 per month with only 3.5% money down.  Why used a real estate agent to buy your new home?  First of all my services are free to buyers (builder’s pay the commission).  Additionally, I was able to get the builder to discount the premium lot in negotiations.  Other concessions include $5K in closing costs.  This property is expected to close two days before Christmas.
