I would recommend seeing if there is a special kind of insulation that would prevent the noise. This could be a pretty cost efficient way of solving the problem, and it's a fairly easy fix. If this isn't possible though, you may want to talk to the landlord about your problem.

Just make sure that the lakes don't leach water in, around or under your home. This can and usually does cause you a lot of grief.

You should take pictures of the interior of your home before your tenants move in.

When it comes time for the tenant to get their security deposit back, the last thing you want is for you tenant to say is "it was like that when we moved in." I also advise tenants to do the same thing when they move in so landlords can't screw them over on their deposit. ... more

Hi Hassan,

Of course you can qualify to buy a condo in Florida.

Although there are many age restricted communities where you must be at least 55 years old to live there, there are hundreds that do not have an age qualification.

What do you have in mind as far as location within Florida? How large a condo do you wish to buy: # bedrooms, # baths, oceanview, golf course/country club community? Do you have any pets: dogs, cats, birds, etc.? There are many condos that do not allow pets. Then we get to the big question: how much are you planning to spend?

Please contact me directly and I will be glad to be of assistance.

Tom Priester answered:

As others have pointed out the fees vary depending on the unit but fall somewhere between the low $300's to about $400 per month. Keep in mind that this does include your building insurance as well as basic cable. Sales in Huntington Lakes have been solid with 69 units successfully selling over the past 12 months at prices ranging from $36,000 all the way up to $130,000 with a median sales price of $77,500. There are currently 10 other units under contract and those have list prices between $62,500 and $99,000.

With 46 units currently available at prices starting from $44,900 there is still a solid selection of homes and it is still a buyers market with inventory of about 8 months supply. If you would like any additional information on any of these homes or others in the area just let me know.

I work almost entirely as a buyers agent in Palm Beach and Martin Counties and certainly would be honored to be on the list of Realtors® you interview and happy to be of assistance in any way that I can. I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Always at Your Service,

Don Tepper answered:
As the previous answers state, it depends on your condo documents.

It's likely that the sidewalk itself is classified as either a "common element" or a "limited common element."

If it's a common element, then the condo association owns it and is responsible for maintaining it. And, unless your condo rules state differently (and they might), the association might also be responsible for snow shoveling and things like that.

If it's a limited common element, then the condo association still owns it. But there may be additional responsibilities assigned to you.

If you're in a townhouse, then it's possible that you own it. Again, check your condo documents. Or check the documents you received at settlement.

Hope that helps.

Tom Priester answered:
Disney Granny,

In a condominium, individual owners own the airspace within their common walls and everything inside this space. Everything else in the development is typically owned in common with the other owners and these are what are known as common elements. In many projects there are other spaces outside of the unit like an assigned parking space or storage locker that may benefit only a specific owner and these are known as limited common elements.

I hope this information is of help but if I can provide any further clarification please feel free to contact me.

Sandra Strickland answered:
Hi Joann,

I am an agent in Delray Beach. There are many options when it comes to condos in Delray. If you choose to be east of the intracoastal near the beach prices will be higher as will most monthly condo fees due to hurricane insurance. However, it you would like to be in downtown Delray Beach walking distance to shops and restaurants where a lot of people like to be, your condo fees will be more manageable. If neither of those are important to you, there are communities out west where prices are substancially lower. 55+ communities are another option you may or may not want to consider. I recommend we talk on the phone so I can find out what your criteria are. Then I can send you some properties that match your needs. Check out my we site I am a top agent here for over ten years. I'm also a native Floridian. I'd be happy to answer any of your questions!

If you are interested in West Palm Beach and are on a budget, I suggest Century Village. It is a very large gated community with pools, a movie theater, clubhouses, etc on the grounds. They also have community buses to take you shopping, etc. If you need more information, please contact me at:
