Price Group Realtors is working with a new client to list her home after a disastrous experience with an on-line real estate investment company Offerpad!

OfferPad is a company that, in a “simple 6 step process” will determine the value of your home (sight unseen), send you a purchase contract to sign and VOILA…you wait for your selected closing date!

Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work that way.  Our client, Carolyn felt like she had done her homework before going with OfferPad.  She’d seen their ads on tv, she read reviews on their website and she was encouraged after reading, “OfferPad pays cash so you don’t have to worry about last minute unmet contingencies.”

After receiving her offer and signing the purchase agreement, everything seemed to be going as planned until…SIX DAYS BEFORE CLOSING she received a call from OfferPad that they were rescinding their offer to purchase because “the market is too unreliable right now!”  

During the time they were “under contract”, Carolyn contracted to purchase a condo and put down $5,000 earnest money deposit.  Fortunately, the sellers were understanding of her dilemma and have agreed not to sue her for failure to performance (which they had the right to do) and keep her $5,000 but instead they agreed to a delayed closing, allowing her time to get her existing home sold.  Price Group Realtors is now listing her home for sale, with every reason to believe that we will have her home SOLD in short order.

While working through all of this with Carolyn, we’ve learned more about OfferPad.  They mis-lead their customers into thinking that they aren’t charging a commission but in the fine print of their contracts they are charging 7.5% and building that into the “purchase price” they offer.  What we know is that they are investors and as investors they are in business to make a profit, period.  

For anyone considering using a company like OfferPad to save you the “hassle” of putting your home on the market, or to save money by not paying a commission or to get a quick closing…please look further than their website for reviews, they only put the good ones on there.  Instead, check out a third-party organization as in this link . 

In summary, when deciding to put your home on the market work with a Realtor.  Realtors aren’t just agents.  We’re professional members of the National Association of REALTORS® and we subscribe to its strict code of ethics.

Walking through Historic Old NE St. Pete

Take a walk through Historic Old NE St. Pete with the Price Group and learn about what makes Old NE St. Pete so special.


The subdivision began in 1911 by a group of men led by C. Perry Snell and J.C. Hamlett. Their goal was to establish the area as the premier residential neighborhood adjacent to the city of St. Petersburg along the shores of Tampa Bay and Coffee Pot Bayou. C. Perry Snell was a staunch advocate of William Straub’s waterfront park system. Snell was instrumental in extending the park northward to Coffee Pot Bayou by giving the city the major part of the waterfront land from 13th Avenue North to Coffee Pot Bayou. This open space park is an invaluable resource of our community. The area contains approximately 9,000 people and 5,300 residential units. The Historic Old Northeast is approximately 82 years old and was virtually “built-out” by the 1950s and 1960s. This makes it rich in history and historical value.

Open Streets St. Pete Takes Over Downtown

This weekend Keep Saint Pete Local, one of St. Petersburg’s many beloved community organizations,Open Streets St. Pete introduced a new festival called Open Streets St. Pete. The Open Streets concept started in 2010 with an emphasis on making the streets available to the public for walking, biking, and community fun while regular traffic is diverted. This year was the first the idea was brought to St. Petersburg, combining it with Indie Fam Fest. It highlighted all of the best parts of our city: The makers, music, and the community.

The streets surrounding Williams park were all shut off to motorized traffic. Bikes, dogs, and vendors flooded the open pavement from 1-5pm. St. Pete has many different markets and hold its vendors in high regard. There were many local makers at Open Streets St. Pete, including St Pete’s own Kahwa Coffee, The Hole Donuts, and O’Berry’s Succulents. A food truck rally which lined the entire west side of Williams Park and kept all the bikers fed well.

Open Streets St. Pete Hoola MonstersSt. Pete’s music scene has deep and young roots. You could easily see the diversity of this at Open Streets St Pete. St. Pete Music Factory, a company who helps train kids to learn about music, put on a great show with performances from many young, talented bands. Hoola Monsters provided hula-hoops for kids while adults danced alongside to thOpen Strees St. Petee music that filled the park.

The best part was the community. Church organizations, The Tampa Bay Rays, and a myriad of businesses all came together to offer a safe, fun environment for our residents and neighbors. For those living close by, it was only a short walk or bike ride to and from the event. The surrounding neighborhoods enjoy these type of events throughout the year and its residents are proud to call areas like Old Northeast, Old Southeast, and Uptown home.
