The experience of making a decision to buy real estate in a certain region of Florida, can be daunting, but doesn't have to be, especially for new families. The best place to invest in real estate is when it's a buyer market and when the homes availability is very plentiful and in big supply. Usually it's just a case of simple economics, supply vs. demand. 

Bradenton, Florida is quite a gem in southwest florida with a great culture surrounding it. We often see buyers act very quickly when it comes to buying their dream home or investing in a property in Bradenton, FL. Let's delve into what makes the city of Bradenton such a novel area in Florida.

1. Bradenton has a pleasant and attractive location. It is situated on the forefront of the Manatee River that leads into the Gulf of Mexico. It's just to the south of Tampa (about 50 minutes) and North of Sarasota (about 30 minutes) on the West Coast of Florida. Bradenton is the main city but houses many beach cities along the way to it's west - Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, Palmetto, Parrish and Ellenton. As it's situated on the Gulf, it has many amenities such as deep sea fishing, dolphin watching, and many water sports. Bradenton is one hour and a half to Disney World and two hours to the center of Orlando. Here, the beaches are also voted the best of all of Florida according to National Geographic, not to mention an enormous supply of grouper fish at any restaurant you stop at.

2. Houses for Sale in Bradenton FL are quite the buyers market due to the huge influx of growth in Bradenton and the surrounding areas, with  supply more than most counties. Prices get reduced quite frequently and Bradenton Realtors such as us, Xena Vallone Realty have been in the growth scene way before the explosion of huge
growth in the area. We are able to negotiate at times very well with sellers due to the competition here. I haven't seen sellers so eager to sell in the past few years as they move on. No better time than now to get a great bargain on a home in Bradenton.

3. Interest Rates are still at historical lows at less than 4%. Taking advantage of interest rates this time is like getting a huge sale on a house with minimal effort!

4. Bradenton Real Estate has a huge amount of houses for sale due to the fact that many elderly couples have been leaving this area, about 7% each year according to a study by Forrester Research and younger middle class families have taken their place by buying homes here. Lots of supply drives the cost of the houses down, leaving the buyers market intact. We also have seen a lot of condos for sale bradenton fl. There is a plethora of choices here which makes it easy to buy your dream home in Bradenton.

such as Xena Vallone Realty, some lucky buyers, are able to purchase the house of their dreams with very little money down and out of pocket.
