In your opinion, what areas in southern Pasco, and northern Pinellas and Hillsborough counties are safest from another housing bubble and have the best chance to appreciate in the future? I may be moving soon and don't want to screw up like I did last time.

The most established areas are the best ones when it comes to holding their value. An area that is full of new homes built during the housing bubble probably isn't going to recover anytime soon.

I agree with Occifer. Clearwater proper is probably a safe bet.

Northern Clearwater, Safety Harbor, Dunedin, Palm Harbor (particularly the east side) and of course most quality waterfront (as in gulf waters) properties.

I meant the northern part of Hillsborough. Gotta stay within commuting distance for my wife. What are yalls thoughts on the more established parts of Land O Lakes like the Lake Padgett area? Do you think all the new developments will bring the whole city down?

I understand the screw up. We did the same thing when we bought in Spring Hill. NEVER AGAIN will I buy a home in that sort of place unless I want to use it as a rental property.

Prius hit the nail on the head. I'd say Palm Harbor and Safety Harbor are your best bets. I've been watching the market in both areas, and although they both took a hit when the economy went bad, they didn't suffer nearly as badly as other places in the Tampa Bay area. Now they are on the rebound big-time. In my neighborhood, housing is skyrocketing - homes were selling in the 250K range last year but are now going for 350K. Both Palm Harbor and Safety Harbor have traditionally held their value really well, so I doubt you'll go wrong purchasing in either area.

lol, is this a trick question?

the same crap that happened in 2007 is happening again and people that are from the area can see it and wouldnt dare buy in this market again for the purposes of "asset appreciation". Your best bet is to buy to live long term if your in this to make money you may be left holding the bag....again

I know of no where north. From my travels home appreciation looks like the best from the outside south east in the Lithia/Pinecrest area.

No no no, I don't want to end up in the same situation when I bought in Spring Hill in 2007 where if I need/want to sell I cant because I lost 60% of the value of my home. I am looking for a long term home but I want it to be in a "safer" area that's not gonna become a low class renter area if something happens to the housing market.
