Marita Depends on the Landlord and/or Community! Contact me
directly we can sort it out. The issue of " pets in residence"
seems to be more involved each new year. For Tenants
there can even be " pet's rent" padded on to the deal.!
Many Associations are now having tenant applicants
post a " pet security Deposit " for lease approvals!

We can help you anticipate what's out there and
your options! Ask me to help!

Trulia lists information on most of the homes in the area which means you have to look closely to determine if it is actually for sale or not. If it says No that means the house is there for informational purposes only. You should find a Realtor in your area if you want specific information about a particular home. ... more

I would agree with Educated Consumer's comments regarding prices and values. You can find West Palm Century Village units for $10-15K; these are distress sales and REOs. My unit has lost some $22K in value in only 2 years, to give you an idea. Most CV residents own their units free and clear and may have bought them years ago at very low prices. They are NOT losing money if they sell at current market values. CV is a full service community, with one of the best security systems in the state of Florida, 12 swimming pools, a $8 million clubhouse and a NEW fitness center, 365 days a year internal and external courtesy bus service, an on-site medical building and pharmacy, golf course, tennis courts, Broadway shows and free first run movies. No other condo community comes close regardless of how luxurious the accommodations. It is less than 10 minutes to all major shopping centers and 20 minutes to CityPlace.

For retirees who want to keep their housing and other costs low, you can't beat CV, West Palm Beach. For more details, check the last U.S. Census report. Be aware that over 20% of CV residents are over the age of 70, with many in their 80s and 90s.

Of course, buying without a mortgage is the only smart thing to do given that Wall Street itself is collapsing now that 3 of their top 5 financial firms will be gone by this week (i.e. Lehman and Merrill joining the vaporization of Bear Stearns). However, the worst case scenario for any condo is living in a ghost town. Given enough foreclosures in the building or simply owners who can't pay the maintenance fees, you could lose building services like the use of the elevator, hall lights, security & other staff, landscape irrigation, pool maintenance, etc. And in that situation you're stuck in a scary situation because only deal seekers with an eye toward a market turn around several years down the road will want to buy you out. So research the building's other units and local economy very well, especially in Florida.
