There are lots of important steps you can take on own to insure you are fully educated on financial aspects of ALL REAL COSTS of Homeownership that will enable you to make a smart investment section about a particular house or condo. Use to learn about analyzing house purchase price, closing costs, Appraisal, Attorney Fees, mortgage financing/points,
+ Bank Approval Process(how much can I afford with X $ amount as downpayment), RE Taxes + Title Costs, Transfer Taxes, RE Broker commissions, etc. As this will probably be your biggest $ investment in lifetime, good idea to be as informed as possible. is easy to use/understand, educational and in-depth.

Hi Butterball,

Sally is correct. Trulia receives listing information from various sources and none of them are providing us with listing information for this property at this time. If you are the home owner, please ask your broker or agent to submit the listing to Trulia via the link below.

Best Wishes,

Bill Eckler answered:

Florida sink holes can happen any time and any where in's all about subterrenian water movement. We typically see an increase in sink hole activity during the winter months that has been traced to farm areas pumping excessive amounts of water to prevent damage from crops freezing.

Two years ago a portion of Interstate 4 had to be shut down because of sink hole activity....It's impossible to predict where one may occur but if you are intending on living in or near a rural farming area, it would be fair to assume your percentages would increase.

Hope this is helpful.

You can get an equity loan on the home you have, not sure how much they will lend you but if it appraises right you may get the whole amount you need, If it is in Brookridge, I would mosey on across the street to Brannan Banl and talk with the young lady at the loan department and see what they can do for you!

Gerard Carney answered:
Go with an FHA if you can but if not, you can try a USDA loan since the area you looking in qualifies for such a loan. Why are you putting so much down on the home? you could easily put down $20K and still get a loan if the property appraises for the $80K sale price, Your home would run you very little a month if you are carrying over Homestead and save our homes if not after one year at the residence you would qualify for these savings. $60K down will LEave you with a $20K loan plus about $5K in Closing, probably less than that. Brannan Back is a local bank and would give you a loan on that, one which would be local and therefore easy for you to keep track of, plus they would offer you banking services that would save you some money!
Good Luck with your new Home! Gerard Carney, Exit Success Realty, 352-206-2371,
