Based on many contact I get from people outside of Brevard County, Florida, there is a perception out there that you can get a really nice house in a really decent community in Viera, Florida for low prices....like about $80,000.
Likewise, there is a pretty widely held belief that a very nice condo on the beach or even Merritt Island can be purchased for less than $50,000.
I do not know the source of these perceptions arise. There are short sales. There are some foreclosure sales. There are more fair market sales (standard sales, regular sales) than distressed properties for sale in Brevard County, Florida.
One thing I do know is there are no fire sales in Viera or even beach side!
Amazing how it is always the case - consumers always want more for less!
If you are interested in homes for sale in Viera, Florida, the going prices, outside of the Indian River Colony Club, are in the low $100,000s and upward over a million dollars.
If you are interested in condos for sale in Cocoa Beach, Florida, the going prices are around $60,000 for a 1960s shoebox to over a million dollars. If you are looking for really nice - go much higher!
