St Petersburg’s miles of beautiful beaches make it a wonderful community to own a second home or a vacation home. St. Petersburg has some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida and offer resort-style communities close enough to make it affordable to spend weekends and vacations in St Pete.
Second home buyers can typically leave their seasonal clothing and fun in the sun stash at their vacation residence so they can travel light and just arrive and enjoy all the sunshine, culture and fine dining that put St. Pete on the map. When your getaway place is stocked with flatware and toiletries, you can be spontaneous and take more frequent siestas from civilization.
Another great thing about Florida vacation properties is that there is a wealth of property management companies from which to select. Even if you live in a subdivision where the exterior of the property is tended, in preparation for your arrival you can employ a licensed company to turn the water on and clean the interior and even stock your frig so you can really feel pampered and relieved of even mundane domestic chores. It can all happen in St. Pete.

- Pre-Foreclosure – the foreclosure process begins when a borrower defaults on loan payments and the lender files a public default notice, called a Notice of Default or Lis Pendens. Buying a property in pre-foreclosure involves approaching the owner and offering to buy the property outright.
- Auction – if the loan is not reinstated by the end of the pre-foreclosure period, potential buyers can bid on the property at a public auction. Buyers often are required to pay in cash at the auction and may not have much time to research the title and condition of the property beforehand; however, a public auction often offers some of the best bargains and avoids the unpredictability of dealing directly with the owner.
- Bank-owned – if the lender takes ownership of the property, either through an agreement with the owner during pre-foreclosure or at the public auction; the lender will usually want to re-sell.
