Davis Islands Newsletter January 2017

THE DAVIS ISLANDS VIEW NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the January issue of the Islands View newsletter and HAPPY NEW YEAR! This past year has flown by, and I for one am excited about 2017. One of my goals this year is to stay even more interconnected with the Islands community, to this end I encourage you to submit to me any ideas or issues you think should be addressed in our community. I will work to connect these to the rest of the Islands, as well as with the best individuals both locally and at the City of Tampa who can potentially handle them. As always have a great month and we will see you around the Islands.

ISLANDS NEWS

It’s Always Good to Know

Recently there have been questions regarding sidewalk access around the Islands. In particular, times where vehicles are parked across the sidewalk or large tree branches from an owner’s property are projecting over the sidewalk. Doing some research through the City of Tampa’s Neighborhood Enhancement Division, the following City Ordinances as it relates to these two items are explained (click links below):

Sec. 22-8. – Obstructing streets, sidewalks, alleys, etc.; exceptions.

Sec. 22-309. – Trimming branches of trees projecting over streets and sidewalks.

While it is always great to be informed, it is just as important to work with each other when an issue arises. We live in a neighborhood so being neighborly is kinda what it is all about 🙂

Bayshore Little League Spring Registration Open

Flood Insurance

As Hurricane season winds down (no pun intended) we tend to forget about the rains and the potential for flooding here on Davis Islands. While most folks with a federally backed mortgage have flood insurance through FEMA there is a growing base of homeowners finding Private Flood insurance policies. While I was researching for my own home I came across a list of Flood Insurance Writers in Florida. The theory is that these insurance carriers will help to increase competition and thereby bring down rates. I thought I would pass along this list from the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation in case you were evaluating for your own situation.

Halloween in the Village Photos

Thank you to everyone who participated in the DI Halloween in the Village. We had close to 400 kids plus dozens of pets. We captured different photos from the day, here is a link to a quick

DI road resurfacing continues

The City of Tampa continues the resurfacing of the Islands streets, this time from the section of the Apex, south towards “Thrill Hill”. It is estimated that the work will begin in the next month or so. As many of you are aware the area south of “Thrill Hill” to South Davis was re-stripped and resurfaced last year, with bike lanes added. It is hopefully that the addition of the bike lanes will slow traffic on the West Davis corridor.

Early Bird Reminder – S.W.E.E.P Program

With the great amenities we have on Davis Islands, it sometimes makes sense to leave the car parked in the garage and take an alternative mode of transportation. Over the years many Islanders have invested in low speed vehicles. If you are considering the purchase of a low speed vehicles (some folks call golf carts) then I encourage you to read further to know the requirements read more

IS A MARKET CORRECTION COMING?

We are continually asked how the real estate market is on Davis Islands. I just wanted to give you an overall perspective. We have seen a fantastic real estate market run over the last 6 years. This being said there are conditions occurring which may begin to slow things down. Here are a few…

1) Interest rates to increase, which reduces buyer purchasing power.
2) Homes staying on the market longer then in the past.
3) More downward seller price adjustments have occurred.
4) Flood maps in Hillsborough County in the process of updating.

It is important to realize where we are in the market cycle. There will be a correction in this market and the best course of action is to assess your personal situation and at least understand the current value of your home. If you are considering the sale of your home then I encourage you to get a detailed determination of value for your property. Even if you decide not to sell, you can at least have a starting point to track your homes value.

Call today (813) 391-9240 and we can provide you a detailed market analysis specific for your Islands home. Additionally, if you would just like a general assessment you can click below.
