Why would I say it's overpriced at $599,000 ?

According to comps, the house across the street:

441 Kali Ct, Palm Harbor, FL 34683
3,345 sqft / 3 car garage /.32 acre lot
SOLD 1/15/2015 for $635,000
SOLD at $189 per sqft

Now back to 430 Kali Ct:
2803 sqft, 2 car garage, .16 acre

So:
2803 sqft * $189 = $529,767
subtract 1 car garage (15k ?)
subtract for 1/2 the size lot (15k ?)

Looking at it rationally, it looks like a $500,000 house based upon a recent
comp that sold directly across the street 3 months ago. I'll wait some more.
Not sure if you understand how appraisals are done or have seen one before but if you use $/sq.ft, which rarely appraisers do, that would include all the corrections.

Normally, the corrections are done for each individual features (square foot, swimming pool, fire place, etc.). For example, if I use your number, the correction for house size goes like this (3345-2803)* ($30 to $40/sq.ft), which gives about a 16K to 22K correction to subtract from the COMP. Then correcting for house size, the house you are looking at would have a value of 613k to 619K. Then you apply other corrections such as lot size and so on to get to the final number. Of course, the final market value would be what a willing buyer pays, logical or otherwise.

ETA: If I use your estimation on garage and lot size (total of 30K), I would then have a range of 583K to 589K. That doesn't look like $500K you came up with.

Aside from the ad-hominem attack, your point may be valid as an urban planner or developer, but not to someone you are asking to buy into an area which probably will not change significantly in the entire period they will own a particular property. And in this day and age, that's asking a LOT...

And it's CLEARLY not happening here

Let me ask you something, do you even LIVE here?? You seem blissfully ignorant of some areas
The very things you say about apples were said about oranges before they were turned into lemonade. Your negativity is neither significant nor even interesting, but rather dull. That you wouldn't venture whatever capital might be at your disposal, certainly you've the manners of a tycoon, as an American pioneer but would rather remain safely huddled in whatever comfort you've found for yourself is your freedom to enjoy.

You've obviously not a clue as to what you are talking about with regard to Temple Terrace. All the stats show currently and consistently that crime is much lower than not only the national average there but even compared to much more moneyed areas here such as Hyde Park and that the level of educational attainment in Temple Terrace is quite high. You haven't a shred of evidence to back up your inane assertions.

Here shows city-data (I think I screenshot these last year--so they might need be updated) stats on the education level there, particularly noted is your voiced area of concern being W of 56th--showing such nonsense on your part...





Here's some crime stats (I don't recall when I screenshot that)



TT


compared to Tampa

Those are just what are in my photobucket file. There might be more current numbers available.

The town of Temple Terrace itself W of 56th S of Busch extends only about two blocks and that area is perfectly acceptable living.

Here's a typical street scene south of Busch, W of 56th



Here's another shot typical of that residential area.



And all of these Temple Terrace homes are also W of 56th, in the area you refer to in your bigoted fashion as "hood", immediately adjacent to USF.













Hood, you say? You seem to get great pleasure out of being wrong. That's not ad hominem. It is observation.

I don't doubt that TT is a great place, but comparing any one small suburb's crime stats or area with the whole city of Tampa stats is pretty irrelevant.

The easy to grab stats don't break down different areas of Tampa as it goes by city, never mind that much of what many consider Tampa is really unincorporated areas of Hillsborough County with merely a Tampa address.

Without fail, every time I've checked over the years, regardless of the period involved (whether the current week or a recent few months, etc.) when comparing similar geographic areas which can be done on crime maps (and I have many of those still in photobucket but would have to search them--anyone could just as easily do their own research or simply search city-data pages for where I've already corrected the past misinformation of similar others about TT on various threads), invariably the police information shows Temple Terrace to be one of the safer area of Tampa Bay, certainly among the more urban areas, as being directly next to one of the largest universities in the country and just 20 minutes from downtown hardly qualifies TT as what most think of as being suburbia.

And I've checked the area relative to Carrollwood, relative to Hyde Park, relative to various areas of St. Pete, and elsewhere. Each time Temple Terrace shows to be the area of lesser crime. And that's not just true of crime which affects pretty much everyone, everywhere, but also that is true of some of the most heinous of crimes such as sex offenders. I'd done an entire thread which I will bump to tie to this. But for ready reference it is this thread Where do the SEX OFFENDERS live? and here is a quote of my post from that showing how safe is Temple Terrace compared to other areas of Tampa Bay (stats as of date of that posting)...

Not only that-how many people live west of whatever street that the stat is showing. I am always wary of such stats. This is more for entertainment than any serious decision that I would make on. Key statistics would be extremely sensitive to sample size to say the least.

Yet another ridiculous attempt at unwarranted ridicule.

The only place I pointed out west of any street , in direct response, it should be noted, to a nonsense comment concerning west of that particular street is on the PhD attainment which shows the area quite high in educational attainment and quite to the contrary of the allegation, regardless of population.

But even if your complaint is that a specific area was selected (again, in response to that very same specific area being in error called out), your point is moot because the stats also show that overall, in PhD attainment, the city of Temple Terrace in its entirety ranks right between Washington DC and Boston in the educational level of their populations in this catagory, which is not too shabby a showing.

And for the attainment of Master's, the city of Temple Terrace, in overall population, not sectioning out any area, is right up there with Carrollwood just below Tampa Palms.

So your complaint as to sample size, since the stats show a percent of population, and the categories show the entire town, is meaningless. Have a nice day.

It's pretty clear to me after reading many of your posts that most of your statements are highly irrational in terms of evaluating housing values. To claim a value of $30-$40 per square foot to establish home value is absurd and it shows all of the other readers how ridiculous your claims are.

Everyone (and I mean everyone) knows that when comping a house you pick 3 other recent home sales in the same neighborhood with same build quality and determine an average cost per sqft as a baseline to determine if the house you are considering is priced correctly. Then you add or subtract for differences in lot size, number of garage stalls, or a pool.

In my example, I was also probably being overly conservative in that the value of a double lot is probably worth considerably more than $15,000 extra. Which only strengthens my contention that the house is extremely overpriced compared to the recent comp sale across the street. A .16 acre lot in Palm Harbor close to the Gulf is probably worth in the ballpark of $100k while a double lot is probably worth $200k. I think most readers will agree that my statements are much closer to reality than yours.
