This is a very interesting question....one that I'm sure many would like to continue to weigh in on......
Please, let's be civil and respectful towards each other here so the thread does not have to be closed.

The main thing to consider, whether buying or selling, is to find a real estate agent who is honest, intelligent, and has a realistic handle on the housing market.

Thanks for asking about Moderator cut: edit:removed link in Tampa -- we almost sold last month but the deal fell apart. I have notice that things have been picking up -- we average about 1 person a week viewing our house, but we are finding alot of people are having a difficult time qualify for a loan. For example, in the past 6 or so months, we have had 3 people offering lease to purchase option and 2 asked if we would owner finance. It is a tough market to find qualified people who can get a loan these days.

Boomer, that is really a nice house, I can't believe the low price! What makes it is that incredible landscaping, those palm trees are gorgeous and just "scream" Florida! Honestly, I don't think you are going to have a problem selling it, I bet it sells real soon. I am surprised people are finding a hard time qualifying for a loan, maybe it's just more about people need to sell first.

Anyway, here's to wishing you some good luck on it - you have obviously taken great care of it because it shows.

Thanks for the nice comment gypsychic. Well, it has been on the market for awhile and at this price for 3 months. I am not sure why it is not selling. You would think it would have sold by now. I think the main problem is the new construction homes around my neighborhood. Most of those homes, sqft for sqft is just as competitive -- if not even better (price wise), but you definitely get a smaller lot and a plain cookie cutter home design-- meaning they all look the same. What boggles me and frankly, I can't understand why people would prefer a box home (they are all built like a square and with no character). This design is so cheaply made. And what most people seem to forget, almost all new developments these days have CDD fees. The HOA and CDD fees around my area amounts to $1,500 annually. That is $45,000 over a 30 year mortgage period.

I gotta back my man Mike up on this one. I have a friend who just came back from Mike's neck of the woods. Said you can get a 4 bdrm 3 bthrm for 70,000 over there. So their housing market is right where it is supposed to be. Given what Mike told me what the median income is over there. People need to stop thinking the housing mess is universal across America, it isn't. Not every locale went crazy with the prices. Some had smaller run ups in prices than others. Other places appreciated in the traditional 3% to 4% per year fashion, so they never saw this huge run up. As a result, those places will not have a correction as none is needed. All things are NOT equal in this housing mess folks.
