You need to contact the local police department for your question. Realtors cannot give opinions regarding safety, crime, quality of local schools, etc. because it violates Fair Housing laws. ... more

Actually, there is a beach near Beverly Hills known as the Fort Island Gulf Beach in Crystal River. It's about 16 miles from Beverly Hills and it is the Gulf of Mexico. Now, having said that, it is a relatively small beach area and looks more like a lake but it is the Gulf of Mexico. There is also a fishing dock there as well as a boat launch.

There are many other beach areas all around Florida, as you know, because Florida is a peninsula. On the East Coast the beach areas that are about a couple of hour drive from Citrus County would include Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, New Smyrna Beach as well as others. In addition, there are many on the West Coast that also are about a two hour drive from Citrus County such as Clearwater Beach and St Petersburg Beach. There are many areas of beaches nearby so you will not be disappointed. Citrus County is known as the "Nature Coast" and there are many lakes around as well.

Sincerely,
Mary Conant

There are three middle schools in Citrus County, depending on where you choose to live will determine which school your child would attend. The school system in Citrus County has good ratings over all. The middle schools are: Crystal River Middle School, Inverness Middle School and Lecanto Middle School.

Both Inverness and Crystal River are family oriented and although Citrus County has a complement of "retired" residents there is also a number of young families hence the number of schools.

There are homes in every price range in Citrus County. Any agent will be able to assist you in your search.

Hello Kathy,
Beverly Hills is going through a demographic change at this time. Many older residents are either passing on or moving nearer to their families hence the number of homes for sale in the area. Large dogs are allowed in the area depending on the neighborhood you choose to purchase.

Agree with Pamela, HUD also sometimes has a 3 day wait before accepting from owner resident, and then after 30 days opens to investors.

There are certain renovation/improvements you can do to a property that will really improve your value...kitchens and baths, in particular. You might even get dollar for dollar increase in value. In the case of a pool, you are lucky to get fifty cents on the dollar. IHMO, let the previous owner loss the money on the investment...buy with a pool! ... more

Hi Donnaboyd,

Paying cash or financing, you should hire a Realtor to represent you as buyer (unless you have already done so). Your Realtor will then contact the Listing Agent to gain access to the property. You can also hire the Listing Agent (if you don't already have a Realtor) and have them represent both you and the seller (Dual Agency). This is not 'uncommon' but some people don't like to do this as they have concerns over conflict of interest. You definitely should have a buyers agent (Realtor) as there is a lot of paperwork, etc involved in a Real Estate transaction and a Realtor will help protect your interests.

This has been tossed around for a while I see but the first thing I thought of is the difference between the "living square footage" and "under roof". There would be no real reason to lie about this information but I know these are often confused. ... more

Sherri C Parker answered:
The market is definitely changing and the buyers who previously waited to buy the larger properties are now deciding to buy. I live in Pine Ridge and love the community, I have horses and ride and drive them. Many of the homes in Pine Ridge have larger acreage and are horse ready and horse friendly. In the past two years, people waited to buy because of the economy. Many people could not afford the horse property they wanted when they retired or wanted to see what the stock market would do. Now they see that prices are more realistic than they were and are finally wanting to take the plunge. My sales are increasing in the higher price range and I am very optimistic about the market and believe in the success of Pine Ridge. ... more

No, it is not part of Pine Ridge Equestrian community, it just borders it. You do not have the priveledges that are offered , but you also have no yearly dues and the land is so beautiful, rolling and lots of trees. The homes are just as beautiful also.
