I live in Jacksonville and I am looking to buy a condo in Hollywood Fl. to be near family. I am particulary looking for forclosures that I can get in the $40K - $60K range. I am looking long term so that when I am ready to retire I will still be able to afford comfortably on Soc Sec and my pension. I am looking for a 2 bed, 2 bath, preferably on a high floor in either a gated community or atleast a place that has security. I have a small dog- Shi tzu and it needs to be a building that allows pets.
I am buying now because the interest rates are at an all time low and there are so many foreclosures that I do not want to lose this opportunity. I am not planning to retire for another 7-10 yrs but by then I will probably not be able to get the deals that I see now. So I really would like to buy something now for the future. I may have an opportunity to move down to Hollywood in the next couple of months with my job so I would like to buy something by the end of August to mid Sept the latest.
