In greater Pinellas Point in St. Petersburg, the median was $134,950 last year. The closest sale to that was a three-bedroom, two-bath house that went for for $133,900 in February. The house has 1,633 square feet of space, including a formal dining room and split bedroom plan with the master bedroom at one end of the house and the other two bedrooms at the other end. It was built in 1971 on a lot that measures 72 feet by 105 feet. Outside features include a pool, two-car garage, and a porch/deck. What appeals to Jennifer OHoran, who bought the house with her husband, Kevin, is the size. Its really nice, all of this space, she said. They moved from a small duplex on Anna Maria Island. Both OHoran and her husband work in Bradenton, so the southern location is a plus. This is their first house, and they have a 5-month-old son. She likes owning a place. Just having something that is ours that we can do with what we want, she said, adding that they have had a good bit of work to do, including putting some hardwood floors in the bedrooms.
