Pasco County Properties

house_for_saleWe get quite a few requests for new construction in our area. So much of Pinellas County is already built out that it is hard to help buyers who prefer a new home as opposed to an older home. While there are quite a few new construction projects going on in Hillsborough County many of them are so far away from the beaches that people are not really all that interested in them.

The MLS is reporting that there are 174 properties with a new build date of 2012 in Pasco County. The majority of these are in Land O Lakes, Odessa, and Wesley Chapel. Some of the most popular subdivisions are: Alsace, Devonwood, Enclave at Terra Bella, and Stonegate in Land O Lakes, Seven Oaks, Watergrass and Windsor at Meadow Pointe in Wesley Chapel and Grey Hawk in Odessa.

If you are looking for a new construction property in Pasco County, we are able to help you. Just let us know what your requirements are and we are ready to go new home shopping with you!

Tarpon Springs Epiphany Cross Dive 2013

Every year around this time Tarpon Springs hosts its annual Epiphany at the Spring Bayou near West Tarpon Avenue, Tarpon Springs.  Pretty much everyone knows that it is always on January 6th no matter what day of the week that it falls on but many people forget and need to be reminded.  This event is an historic event dating back to the early 1900s in Tarpon Springs.  This is done to remember and celebrate the baptism of Jesus Christ.  The Greek tradition is coveted by young boys from 16 to 18 years of age.  They drive into the cold waters to retrieve a cross that is thrown to them by the bishop of their Greek faith.  The tradition states that the winner will have many blessing bestowed on him in the coming year.  It is an honor to the winner and also to the family who proudly watches on the sidelines.  The dive is followed by a festival and more celebrating in the Craig Park area of Tarpon Springs.  Many people (15,000+) from all around the area are expected to attend and to converge on Tarpon Springs for the 107th Epiphany celebration January 6, 2013
