Observation Pointe Housing Report February 2015

With just 8 short years of home sales under it's belt, Observation Pointe has posted its strongest year ever in 2014.

Located in the 32317 zip code on the east side of Tallahassee (south of Buck Lake Road), Observation Pointe is a small community filled with new and like-new homes.

Like several other neighborhoods that were born during the real estate market expansion, Observation Pointe's existing owners might end up all trying to sell their homes at roughly the same time due to normal ownership cycles. This "boom neighborhood" effect is something that we'll keep an eye on for the next several years.

In this report, we will look at prices, values, and sizes of homes in Observation Pointe, as well as show current listings in the Tallahassee MLS and all closed home sales going back to 2007.
