The Recent Realities of New vs. Resale | Marina Pointe

The Recent Realities of New vs. Resale

There are a variety of reasons people are moving right now, and a plethora of reasons Tampa Bay is such a hot market. Marina Pointe’s beautiful architecture and unique location on the water has always been attractive – but our new construction is increasingly more appealing than resale residences in the area. Here’s what we are hearing from buyers and real estate agents about why home shoppers are considering new more than ever before.

Don’t Overpay

Resale prices have skyrocketed, and people want a sound investment. Marina Pointe is situated in an area that continues to flourish with new development.

Inventory is Tight

Inventory is so tight that people are having to compromise. Marina Pointe’s range of floorplans is helping buyers whether they are looking for a small, private space with stunning sunsets or a larger residence with room for entertaining and hosting guests.

More Options

To make a resale really feel like home, buyers are having to invest in redesigns and additional construction costs. When you buy from Marina Pointe, you have the chance to collaborate with our team to make the unit feel like your dream home from day one.

The Hassle is Real

The process of buying a resale can be horrendous these days with many buyers settling on their 3rd, 4th, or even 5th choice. Limited time to truly weigh options, bidding wars and more are not ideal for buyers truly looking for their next residence. Our sales executives are here to help every buyer be confident and excited about their new residence.


Many resale options don’t offer the array of amenities or private elevators that Marina Pointe offers. There is an increased need for space to live outside of the home and privacy that new construction can better offer. Spend time with your furry friend at the dog park, stay active on our outdoor trails or take in the natural beauty at sunset park – no matter what you desire, there are safe, active spaces for you to enjoy.

We still have several floorplans ranging from the low $800s to over $3 million available in our first tower. Explore all we have to offer here.
