A Letter From The President of Smith & Associates Real Estate


A Letter From The President


The greatest questions in times when there is uncertainty are “What should I expect today”, “What will tomorrow bring” and “What should I do”. You can rely on Smith & Associations to continue to serve the community as the skilled and trusted real estate advisors we have been and will remain. With that in mind, I offer you the following insights into the local effect of these unprecedented events.

Tampa Bay had a record-setting first quarter in real estate, which was the case broadly across many of the markets in the US. We are still seeing much of that success in current closings and inventory yet available. Of course we are seeing some market reaction as buyers and sellers adjust expectations and alter goals. Some choosing to wait and see, while others have made swift decisions. Each individual’s situation is unique and must be evaluated in total to find the correct path.

As many states, including Florida, have adopted new stay at home protocols, we have begun to see the effects of these actions upon the market as professionals and consumers adapt to sales and showings that can be done safely with buyers that have a need to purchase at this time. In our market, real estate activities have been labeled essential, as long as these actions conform to the current guidelines of size limits and social distancing. Together with your Smith Associate will be the best judge of the practices that are right for each situation.

Smith is adjusting strategies to accommodate for consumers limited movement through virtual showings, promoting with a more digital focus, fantastic photos and an elevated degree of electronic communication. Additionally, the closing process is being altered and advanced with safety and convenience in mind. Our administrators continue the 10-day pre-closing prep check to assure all is in order to progress smoothly onto successful completion of transactions.

Naturally, the market will slow in some price ranges and days on market will likely extend to some degree. However, buyers that have been waiting for the “right” home are venturing out for safe showings and buying homes. Of course some are testing values to see if sellers have felt any impact financially hoping to create some opportunity in price negotiation. It is early to tell, but as weeks extend to months, perhaps the trends will show some opportunity in certain ranges for properties not in top condition. Now is the time to get the home in great order so when you do come to market, the best presentation is offered.

If the home was on market prior and things have gone silent, it may not necessarily be isolated to what would be the typical considerations; price or condition, rather, the market may simply be in a pause until folks feel safe. After a period of readjustment occurs and stability returns in employment and our economy, routine behavior will reestablish and Tampa Bay will continue to be one of the best places to choose to live and enjoy life.

We at Smith & Associates, look forward to when buyers and sellers can become more fluid in their movement, but for now we have virtual, digital, and electronic solutions in action to service and support the needs of our consumers right now to accomplish the task of reaching the current goal. As time passes and we begin to see market changes, we will communicate further insights on values and trends with our team to deliver to the communities they serve as trusted real estate advisors.

May you and your family remain safe and secure and at any time we are glad to provide you with market information to assist in your decision-making process. We will continue to be your real estate resource and trusted friends in Tampa Bay.

A Note From the CEO Regarding Real Estate & COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


A note from the CEO regarding real estate and coronavirus


Smith & Associates Real Estate has been an integral part of the Tampa Bay community for over 50 years. We have provided strategic real estate services through market booms and busts and will continue to provide you with relevant real-time real estate market information.

We are experiencing an unprecedented event in modern history, a global pandemic, COVID-19. While we cannot predict exactly how the virus will spread or the markets will respond, we can promise that our agents with years of experience, will continue their timeless commitment to provide timely facts and analysis on our local market. Because we are in constant communications with our global partners we expect that the United States and Florida will soon be subjected to much more restrictive social distancing regulations.

However, now is definitely not the time to panic. The real estate market is far less emotional than the financial markets. Everyone needs someplace to live, and Florida is still an extremely attractive place to live, work and play.

Many people who are considering buying now may be swayed by other benefits of homeownership: control and certainty. Real estate offers people stable monthly payments and a home that makes them feel safe, comfortable, and happy. Further, inventory is still tight in Tampa Bay and historically low-interest rates mean a buyer can secure best value. People will continue to invest money into tangible assets. Throughout the next few weeks, we will continue to provide timely real estate updates.

We understand the safety of our agents and clients is a top priority. Technology allows us to take a virtual tour of a listing and provide online concierge service with a real estate expert. To assist sellers and buyers, we have secured the best virtual experiences on our listings and providing individual showings on request. Our agents will remain available, providing online and video consultations, live streaming property tours, and sharing updates on social media. We continue to monitor and adhere to the guidelines set forth by our local, state and national governments, as well as leading real estate industry associations.

It has been an honor to live and work in Tampa Bay for my entire adult life. I know how strong, supportive, and resilient we are as a community. I am as confident in Tampa Bay’s real estate market as it was two weeks ago before we fully understood the seriousness of COVID-19.

While events that bring us together have shut down, all 285 of our agents are just a phone call away and are equipped to offer sound advice and assurances.

Robert Glaser
President / CEO

9 Luxury Home Technologies You Need for Your Home


Smart home with smart home


Modern glamour in a home has become a merger of design and function, with luxury home technology becoming an essential part of what defines a luxury home. New modern luxury homes are full of smart technology that enhances security, improves lifestyle and offers an added level of peace of mind to the homeowner. It’s estimated that the typical home in 2022 will have more than 500 smart devices. A home that is stylish must now also feature savvy, luxury home technology to even be considered a place for the discerning homeowner to dwell.

Smart homes are the new definition of luxury. You can upgrade an existing home to become a smart home or move into a home that you customize to make the smartest home possible. Either way, these are the top 9 luxury home technologies that you need for your home:

Security Systems
Advancements in artificial intelligence are making a notable impact on the smart home’s security systems and using connectivity to make security seamless and easy. Accessing all your systems while you are away, getting alerts on smartphones and making real-time decisions that keep your home safe are important features of the modern smart home.

Secure Windows and Doors
In the modern mansion, a home’s windows and doors offer an added layer of security by being equipped with ultra-sensitive motion detectors and fingerprint and face-recognition capability. When your home is filled with priceless art collections or vintage wines, savvy technology can offer peace of mind and protect valuables.

Bathroom and Digital Shower Interfaces
Luxury home technology isn’t just about a sense of security, it’s also about combining elements to create an amazing sensory experience. Touchscreen displays can be added to showers or embedded in bathroom walls to customize water temperature, steam levels, lighting, music, and videos.

Smart Kitchen Appliances
Modern mansions have kitchens that are stylish, functional but also full of high tech devices and systems that appeal to the home chef. Refrigerators are now sophisticated enough to manage the food and keep a detailed inventory of what is inside. Intelligent ovens can tell you how to best cook your meal advising you to roast, bake, toast or broil for the best flavor. Connectivity is the key with the kitchen’s luxury home technology, alerting you via your cell phone when a meal is ready.

Radiant Heat Systems
Radiant heating systems supply heat directly to the floor, to panels in the wall, to the ceiling of a house, and even to outdoor driveways. Customize this luxury home technology to keep your driveway free of snow or to keep your tiled kitchen warm in the cooler months.

Boasting conservation technology, many homes can cut utility bills by up to 50% by automating light output, temperature adjustments throughout the day, pool systems, and regulating kitchen applianced.

Structured Wiring
Giving your smart home the right bones to be a technologically advanced smart home can be done with structured wiring. Linked throughout by structured wiring systems, fully connected homes integrate cable TV, home automation, home security, satellite feeds, audio/video systems, computers, and the Internet to provide efficient connectivity and ease.

Smart Lighting
With smart lighting, traditional light bulbs are replaced with smart light bulbs, which provide ultra low wattage and boast long life-spans. You can remotely adjust the lighting in your home from anywhere, using the internet. These lights can pair with sensors for ambient lighting and to detect room occupancy, turning off if they detect an empty room.

Shade Control
Rising with the sun and having your blinds open at a certain time is the ultimate wake-up device in luxury home technology. Through your smartphone, blinds can be opened and closed at specific times. This can also be calculated for security to create a sense of movement within a home while you are away, keeping intruders at bay.

Consider these luxury home technologies for your home. Contact a Smith agent to find the modern, luxury home of your dreams, here.

Tampa Bay Developments Bring Retail and Walkability to Enhance Local Neighborhoods

When you think of living in a large city, you can envision walking out of your flat and immediately having an array of shopping options. City life means having an array of boutiques, restaurants, services, cafes, and coffee shops easily accessible from the doorstep of your home. As the urban centers of Tampa Bay develop, enhanced walkability and access to restaurants and shops is becoming desirable for the modern homeowner. 

The locals may not want the extreme lifestyle of big cities but they do want options and Tampa Bay developers are changing the landscape of these communities with a focus on top-quality retail. Condo towers are becoming a valuable asset to their neighborhoods by creating a unique sense of place with the ground-floor retail space that they provide. Often in popular walkable neighborhoods, the new developments bring new construction to premier established neighborhoods while providing an opportunity for retail in neighborhoods that may have lacked the space to add restaurants and shopping. Walking to your favorite restaurant for calamari and a glass of wine or picking up a last-minute hostess gift for a friend, can be a pleasing benefit to owning a home near retail options.


Women Walking in Hyde Park Village


Hyde Park House

Built in the Historic Hyde Park neighborhood, residents of Hyde Park House will be able to walk along the oak-lined streets for craft cocktails, Italian cuisine, salon services, freshly brewed coffee, or a new release at the boutique cinema in Hyde Park Village. The live, work, play environment of the Hyde Park House’s location, creates a lifestyle where you can enjoy the quiet green space of the neighborhood while still having access to all the things that make urban dwelling so rewarding.


Saltaire Exterior East at Dusk


Saltaire St. Pete

Saltaire St. Pete plans 10,000 square feet of ground-level retail space to offer additional conveniences, services, and amenities for residents. Saltaire’s central and walkable location will make it an integral part of the downtown St. Petersburg community. Residents get the added benefit of privacy with a grand lobby with staffed reception while having open access to the retail and streetscape that make the neighborhood an unmatched destination.


The Residences at The Tampa EDITION Rendering


Water Street Tampa/The Residences at The Tampa EDITION 

On an even grander scale, Water Street Tampa exemplifies the mutual benefit of residential condo development and the unique neighborhood vibe they create. The Mayor of Tampa, Jane Castor, says that 23,000 people are expected to live, work, and play in the Water Street district once completed. The Residences at The Tampa EDITION will be in the heart of the Water Street neighborhood and offer residents direct access to a multitude of dining options including a 5-star restaurant and cafes. In addition to retail, The EDITION combines the world-class EDITION brand curated by Ian Schrager and world-renowned designers, Roman & Williams.


Marina Pointe Town Center


Marina Pointe

Similarly, at Marina Pointe, developers from BTI are creating Tampa’s newest walkable waterfront neighborhood by introducing a full master-planned community overlooking Tampa Bay. A complete contemporary environment for inspired living, shopping, and dining will be created in the center of the development as an added amenity to those living in Marina Pointe. There will be a wine bar, boutique grocery store with organic grab-n-go options and freshly squeezed juices and waterfront restaurant with boat dockage. 

In some instances, new developments help spur retail development such as the case with Altura Bayshore. Fine restaurants continue to pop-up in the Bayshore Gardens area, Counter Culture being the newest addition to the Altura neighborhood with hip interiors and an elevated dining experience led by one of Tampa’s most noted chefs, Jeannie Pierola. Life at Altura provides easy access to a stroll on the iconic Bayshore Boulevard followed by dinner at one of the newest restaurants that Tampa has to offer. 

Increased density spurs new businesses and these Tampa Bay developers are focused on designing retail environments that enhance the lifestyle offered to residents and their neighbors.
