They would both last an incredibly long time. I like ceramic tile better because to me it is easier to care for but Laminated wood will last about as long. I think Tile will last forever if it is taken care of. The tile in my place is about 30 years old and is still in good condition. Of course I would like to replace it just for keeping it modern but the tile is gorgeous.... more

Kissimmee/Poinciana, St. Cloud, Davenport, or Clermont are great places to purchase investement property especially if you are intending to rent the home(s) out long term (7 months +) I've been doing Real Estate & Property Management for over 4 years and live in Davenport for over 8 years witnessing the demad for rentals increase. There are still a lot of good buys on the market, Bank owned & regular resales. Let me know how much you are looking to spend and I'll send you homes that are ideal for renting long term. Also budget repair/maintenance funds, often good buys do have a couple cosmetic things needed done.... more
There are a lot of great places to live in the Orlando area, and the ones you mentioned certainly meet the criteria for good, safe, family oriented neighborhoods, and all with great schools. One sticks out in particular, though, because you mentioned your daughter's interest in the fine arts. Although she is not of high school age yet, when she's ready, she might be a great fit for Dr. Phillips High School. It has a fine arts program designed for students with interests in theater, music and dance. (Since the program is a "magnet", you can reside anywhere in the county and still be able to apply). Along with all of the other criteria you mentioned, are you also considering how convenient the location of your new home will be to your workplace(s)?
I would love to help find the perfect home for your family, and would like to talk to you personally in order to get more detailed information in order to develop a search based solely on your wants and needs. If we work together, we're bound to find just what you and your family are looking for!
If you would like me to provide you with more detailed information about the areas you mentioned, or other Orlando area locations, as well as information to help you with relocation, please contact me at:

I prepare my buyers for the home inspection ahead of time. I let them know it is the inspector's job to point out all the defects, hazards and potential problems with the home. However, they are not buying a brand new home, so they have to expect there to be some defects. They have agreed to purchase the home "as is" and the home inspection is their opportunity to determine what that means, what IS the condition of the home, and, with that knowledge in hand, do they still want to go forward with the purchase. I also advise them that, of course, if there are MAJOR defects, defects in major systems such as plumbing, electrical, the septic system, the roof, in other words, big ticket items, of course they have the option of saying, "I still like the home and I would be willing to go forward if xyz were fixed". Then I provide them with the contact information for 3 inspectors I have worked with in the past that know how to conduct a thorough home inspection, but are more 'low key' in their explanations. I love the guy who says, "the water heater is xx years old, nearing the end of its useful life. It's functioning perfectly now, but you should be aware, you may have to replace it within the next three or four years". THAT's the guy I want to work with!... more

Thanks for turning to TRULIA for your real estate questions. I’m sorry that none of my fellow agents have bothered to reply to your question. The fact is, this may be a difficult task, for little to no pay. If you were a cash buyer, or a high end renter, agents would be fighting to work with you.
However, I believe in treating everyone equally, and will do what I can to help you.
Please feel free to contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be glad to send you listings for properties that are CURRENTLY for rent that are hopefully in the areas you desire. I am a retired Law Enforcement Officer here in Orlando, and I can do my best to tell you what areas I feel are “safe”. (Would I live there, or allow a friend or family member to live there?)

downtown orlando. you get less bang for your buck but downtown is as close to the big city feel as you'll get. And when you get with an agent, make sure that they are familiar with the downtown market, otherwise, you could miss out on properties or not be properly informed. My office is right on Lake Eola next to the Publix so needless to say, I know the area well. Let me know if you need any help =)... more
