Home Buying in Pensacola>Question Details

Robert Lee, Home Buyer in Cantonment, FL

Can someone help me? I am interested in a house at 1207 Blue Fox Pl. Is this a good place and area?

Asked by Robert Lee, Cantonment, FL Fri Feb 8, 2013

I own a home in Gates, NC that my wife and I are trying to sell. In August I have to report to my new duty station. This has become very challenging because I will be on Deployment. When I get back to the states hopefully in July I will have to pack the family up and move to Florida. I have no idea where I want my family to live. I also dont know if I want to buy or rent when I get there. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats which tells me to buy, but I hear the selling market is not that good there. These three years will be my last in the navy and I plan to move to Texas for retirement. Can anyone help me??

Maybe renting might be best. As a rule, buying holding three years then selling is had to do and compete with the price of renting. Yes it can be done, but its a very close call, thus renting for 3 years maybe your best bet.

Thank you John. That makes a lot of sense, especially if I don't plan on retiring there.

Hi Robert, congratulations on your new duty station. My youngest daughter is a Intel officer currently deployed. Fox Run is a great community. Which base will you be stationed at? What is your search criteria for a home? Do you have school age children?

Now is a great time to buy! It is a buyers market and you can get great deals if you are patient as the market is saturated with short sales and foreclosures. Within the next 3 years we believe that the market will rebound and be a good time to sale. The market is already showing signs of recovery. If you buy close to a base, it will make a great rental.

Let me know if I can be of further service to you and your family.
