Proposed Hillsborough County FL School Boundary Changes:

Proposed Riverview and East Bay High Schools Student Reassignment

  • In August 2015 Hillsborough Public Schools will open an addition at Lennard High School located in Ruskin. Designed to provide space for new growth in the area, the addition will also offer some relief to the currently overcrowded East Bay High School.

  • Two meetings will be held for the community to review and provide input to staff on the proposed boundary changes. You may attend either meeting since the same information will be available at both meetings.

  • December 8 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Riverview High School Cafeteria, 11311 Boyette Rd., Riverview and December 11 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at East Bay High School Cafeteria, 7710 Old Big Bend Rd., Gibsonton.

Census Bureau releases annual housing survey

Census Bureau releases annual housing survey

WASHINGTON – Oct. 17, 2014 – The 2013 American Housing Survey released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and U.S. Census Bureau had both good and bad news for prospective homebuyers.

Characteristics of U.S. homes

In 2013, more than one home in 10 stood empty: 87% were occupied – though that’s an increase since 2011 – and 35% were rented. The average size was 1,800 square feet, and the median lot was a quarter acre.

About 4.5 percent of homes needed work, though the number declined a bit since 2011. Overall, the Census Bureau reports that nearly 2 million homes had severe physical problems, and nearly 4 million housing units had moderate physical problems.

 

About one in 10 homes had at least one pest problem in the 12-month period: 10.3% reported seeing signs of cockroaches, and 9.1% of households reported evidence of mice, though the numbers could overlap if a single household saw both roaches and mice during the year.

 

In kitchens, most Americans cook with electricity (61.2%), followed by natural gas/propane (38.7%).

Housing costs

In general, it cost less to own a home in 2013 compared to 2011. Median monthly costs went down. However, the same can’t be said for renters. While owner-occupants’ costs fell, the costs paid by renters increased.

Other report findings

  • Roughly half of all American households say they get along with their next-door neighbors: 82.4% talked to their neighbor with the past month; 50.7% strongly agree they get along with their neighbors; and 49.7% are very willing to help out.

  • Almost one in five Americans used public transportation, primarily busses. However, 40.2% say they bike or walk to nearby destinations; 55.8% said their community has sidewalks; and 14.5% have dedicated bike lanes.

  • Overall, few households prepare for a disaster, and 83.7% don’t have enough non-perishable food to sustain the family members for three days. Only 38% of homes with more than one person have discussed a place to meet in the event of an emergency, and one in four households (27.7%) don’t have enough money ($2,000) to copes with an emergency evacuation.

The Future of Home Searching, Here Now!

In the near future home buyers will drive up to the curb of any home for sale in the U.S., hit one button on their phone or tablet and pull up a web site for that specific home to their mobile device. They won’t need to download a native app, install it or sign up for anything and it won’t matter what kind of device they are using… Apple, Android, Windows or for that matter any device that has internet access.

Guess what… that technology exists today here in the Tampa Bay Area and also in the Miami area of South Florida and is growing in our State..

http://savvycard.com/tomscaglione/tom

Fact is they can save a bookmark on their device desktop and search the MLS in those areas for homes for sale.
