If you want to be located in a traditional neighborhood in downtown Tallahassee, consider a home in Woodland Drives.
This popular subdivision is situated just south of Lafayette Street and is adjacent to Capital City County Club, and it represents a large collection of Tallahassee's historic homes.
Woodland Drives has homes built primarily from the 1940s through the 1990s, though there are some that date back into the 1800s and some just a year or two old. Unlike many of the "boom neighborhoods" that we have discussed in recent housing reports, a well established neighborhood like Woodland Drives is not likely to be suffering from too much pent-up supply.

"Hey Joe, how would you compare a home in Ox Bottom Manor to a home in Summerbrooke?"
I just love reader questions, and this is one that we often receive from buyers who have targeted the $300,000 to $500,000 price range on the NE side of the Tallahassee real estate market.
As you will see from this analysis, these two adjacent neighborhoods produce a lot of home sales in this price range each year, thus they are often compared and contrasted with each other.
Before we continue further in the analysis, do you have an opinion on which neighborhood might have the more expensive homes?
As far as location goes, you would think that adjacent communities, sharing the same school zones and access to town would not differ much. And you might think that with Summerbrooke being built around a golf course that it's home prices...
There are two key housing trends that we monitor to get the "state of the union address" for the Tallahassee real estate market.
Long time readers of our real estate blog know that we track literally hundreds of different trends, but when it comes time to answer the question "how is the market," look no further than the movement in the number of homes that are selling and the median price for which they are selling.
In other words, how many homes are getting sold, and what are sellers getting?
Key Housing Trends Graph
The following real estate graph shows the one-year trend of the median home sales price combined with the one-year trend of monthly home sales (unit sales).

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our Tallahassee Real Estate Blog readers who have sent in comments regarding the launch of our new website!
The one constant theme we have adhered to since this blog was created in 2007 was that our readers would guide the direction of the content. This would not be the typical "now is the time to buy a home" spew that can be seen on the few real estate blogs in existence.
Our aim is to provide the information and content that people buying and selling a home in Tallahassee want to read. Rather than assume that we know what you want, we ask for your feedback, and we listen.
Blog Feedback Matters!
Well, we finally went live with the new Tallahassee Real Estate Website!
The updates that we have made are far more beneficial to you than mere cosmetic adjustments, instead the site is now state-of-the-art and boasts the most up-to-date information on the Tallahassee real estate market.
Everybody likes to say that "real estate is local," and that is very much true on the internet as well. The large aggregate sites might have properties for sale from all over the world, but none of them contains the current and accurate information that we bring to our Tallahassee housing consumers.
The New Look
The new look is much cleaner than what we had in the past, but what you will enjoy the most is the speed!
