As a former realtor I STRONGLY advise you to do your research first. Visit and speak with residents of previously built DR properties or subdivisions. Find out what their experiences were like and if they are still satisfied living there.

From what I've read online, many residents have complaints and wish they never bought from DR Horton. Search Google and read what residents wrote. Also Q & A forum has many posters complaining there too.

FYI - Never assume a home built after 2012 is in better condition than an older home. When you purchase a house, you will have contingencies in your contract for inspections, financing, appraisal. You can have as many types of inspections as you wish (roof, termites, mold, etc.) so older homes will need to pass inspections if the owners want to sell.
On the flip side, a new home can be built with lower cost materials, poor supervision, subcontractors who can be illegal immigrants, etc.

Yes there are many options available to get financed, but ensure that you go through the terms & conditions properly, before opting for such loaning option.

There are no Gulf access ramps...You have to put your boat in in the bay and go through the pass to get to the Gulf. There are passes in Destin and Panama City. Hope this helps.

Santa Rosa Beach is quiet. It's private. There is something unique about each and every one of the communities along the stretch of Santa Rosa Beach. That's one of the main reasons why the tourist industry thrives here. This is where people come to play and relax. The amazing architecture, fine dining, cozy boutiques and vibrant art community keep them coming back year after year. The sugar white sand and the emerald green waters ain't too shabby either. ... more

*RE: As of 2013 we offer Easy doc home loans or no doc loans in Los Angeles California.

No financials needed. Direct Lender with accesses to private money and institutional money to lend for you purchase loan, refinance loans or rehab loans. We work with borrowers and mortgage brokers mostly in California and nationwide. Our stated income loans or our no doc loans helps for fast funding when you need it.
For 2013 we have no fico programs and no income or assets stated loan programs. Call us to see what best fits your needs. Rates starting at 4.6% APR.

Additionally we has an easy doc ( stated income stated assets ) rehab fix and flip loans available. We offer 80% LTV loan to value or 65% of the future value. This is for California deal only. With 65% of the future value you can get the purchase price and the fix up costs all in one loan with no money down. For example - if you buy a place for $200,000 and it is a good deal and worth much more. You need to fix it up for $15K and you the future value, once fixed up, is $330,000 you can get this with pretty much no money down. ie: $330k x 65% = $214,500.

We are eager to fund loans!.

We fund California residential loans $100,000 to $2.5M.

Commercial loans are offered nationwide starting at $250k upto $35 million..

We do not shop your loan request we go straight to the source.

Great thread. I agree that over pricing a listing hurts in the long term. But saying that, I am very active in calling expired listings. These are the listings that generally have not sold because of the overpricing. Most of my work has been done. The seller is easier to work with. The message to sellers is that honestly priced listings sell. When you take the listing you need to negotiate the price reductions up front. ... more

Generally, there is more activity in South Walton. However there are hot spots in different areas. Condo sales are brisk. Single family homes are generally lagging behind because of low inventory. Short Sales are still very strong. ... more

Peter Mohylsky answered:
Two years is a good estimate for REO sales. I think that after that period we will see activity, depending upon what happens after the election, based upon the return of those buyers who had their credit tarnished by unfortunate exposure to the market when it was at it's peak. People will be moving from rentals back into being home buyers. Real Estate is still one of the better investments available to the average citizen. ... more

I agree completely with Shay Dassa. I work 30A Santa Rosa Beach areas and Panama City Beach as well...we have been swamped with sales and many more buyers than we have seen in a few years and inventory is way down. Not only cash buyers but a huge increase in financed properties.
I have talked with several Banks and Lenders and yes there is definitely many more SS and Foreclosures on the horizon. It's true that many Lenders are holding out for higher prices for longer periods of time...they need to release more so we can sell them!!! Good luck in your journey :)
If you would like to contact me directly please feel free to do so. Sincerely, Karen Oliver Beachy Beach 30A Real Estate 850-960-2555

In response to Judi's comments...:-) You can have every designation available to Agents and Brokers BUT if you do not have experience, knowledge of your market, integrity and doesn't matter how much education you have...Sellers and Buyers are needing the knowledge of the Agent / Broker to help them make an educated decision. I know Judi...that's basically what you said I just wanted to clarify it a little bit.
We have both been in the Real Estate business for many years. After 28 years of selling Real Estate in the State of Florida, it's been a challenge to say the least but I still LOVE THE BIZ!!!
Thanks for your detailed comment Judi!!!
