Sally Grenier answered:
The majority of your closing costs will be loan related, and typically based on purchase price. You should ask your lender for a good faith estimate of what your closing costs will be. But they can only assume so much. A lot depends on the property you buy, the type of loan you're getting, how much property taxes are, insurance, etc. Talk to a lender and a Realtor and they should give you a good idea of how much to expect. ... more

Of course nobody can tell what will happen in the span of 10 years until it is time to retire. In Naples, there are no areas too far from anything. It is a small place and driving is quite pleasant with the beautiful roads and well maintained vegetation. The area is relatively new and the condo prices in St. Croix are reasonable. It is a good investment since you will be starting at the low end before price increases in the coming years considering that these condos were in a desirable community and not far from beaches. Screening for renters is of utmost importance as they could give you maintenance problems and unless your property is within walking distance to the beach rentals may not cover your mortgage payments. You also have to think about management of the property. Suggest you make an analysis first of income to value for a sound investment. If the value of the property keep on increasing then you are in luck for purchasing it at this time. If I can be of further assistance please contact me. Thank you. ... more

you will not find a condo for the price of a car and not have an association in good financial health. You have to take the good with the bad in these cases. Buy something for next to nothing and pay higher fees and deal with the problems until ownership eventually turns over in most of the units. ... more
