Hi everybody this is Lance Mohr again real estate agent in Tampa and today I’m going to give you an overview on Carrollwood and again I do these videos because it is just vitally important when you are moving into an area or if you live in the area and move around that you pick the right area, the right subdivision, that is the most important thing you can do. The last thing in the world you want to do is find a home, buy it, and find out you don’t like the area you live in; there’s nothing worse. So as you can see it makes a lot of sense and I want to give you an overview. I never like steering people into one area or saying you need to live here or you need to live there. When I talk to people over the telephone, when I work with buyers and they come into my office I like to ask a lot of questions. I don’t want people just to live where I live, I want them to live where it is going to be best for them which is why I do these overview videos.
So anyhow let’s talk a little bit about Carrollwood. Carrollwood is a really nice more matured area. It is located off of Dale Mabry in North Tampa. A lot of times when people come to me the questions that they have and what they are looking for could be vast. Maybe they want a newer community. Maybe they want an older community. Most of Carrollwood was built in the 70s and 80s and it was a luxury community when it was built. You can tell that because you have a lot of homes that were built in the 70s and 80s that were 2500 to 3000 square feet and I notice to some of you that might not seem really big right now in today’s market but back then that was huge because most of the homes were around 1500 to 1600, 1700 or maybe 2000 square feet; so there are some really, really nice homes in Carrollwood. It is really in the nucleus of Tampa. Being on Dale Mabry you have tons of restaurants, comedy clubs, bars, auto mobile dealerships; pretty much anything you can want. It is really close to the Tampa airport and pretty much anything movie theaters wherever you want to be. If you are looking for an upscale more matured community and area I would definitely recommend Carrollwood as a really good way to go. Again, it is very nice and convenient to everything. So I hope this helps you. If you have any questions on Carrollwood or the surrounding areas don’t hesitate to give me a call.
