Best to enquire from the Schools Board. The Facilities Planning Department usually has plans for them.

Don Lederman answered:
The new homes being built in Woodbridge Ranches in Davie ( today are built to withstand 170 mph winds and with full house tinted impact glass windows and doors. That is a great start to being able to face a hurricane.

Like anywhere, prepared residents have a hurricane kit ready every season with food and water for a few days for every resident of their home (including pets), waterproof container for valuables and paperwork, and will gas up their vehicles just in case of a power outage afterwards.

At least here in Florida we can see them coming and prepare mentally and physically.

Marc F. Samet... answered:
Do you own a home in NJ" If so, is it up for sale and is its sale necessary for you to qualify to purchase a home here in South Florida? I ask because preappoval for your obtaining a mortgage on a home here in the price range with which you are comfortable should be done to enable a realtor to proceed confidently in assisting you.

As a mortgage loan originator, I can assist you in the preapproval process, and then proceed to work with you and your real estate professional to come to a successful closing in a timely manner in a neigborhood with good schools.

Unspecified answered:
It all depends on what your original loan was. If you purchased your home before the big Housing Boom, then you must have an Adjustable or Variable Rate. What a lot of consumers do not know is that the reason for the type of loan you got was because your credit was not that great and that's all you qualified for. But if you have been making your payments on time for the past year you can Refi for Rate and Term. What that means is that when you Refi you will lose the equity on your home, but if you haven't had the property that long it would be worth losing your equity to Refinance for a Fixed Rate Loan. I would advice you to go to straight to a large bank rather than a broker (brokers sell you loan to a bank and thats how they make money).
Look in the News Paper at what fixed rates are going for. Be sure to talk to more than just one bank and shop around. Ask a lot of questions. If you have credit card debt and some equity in your home you could get a Consolidation Loan. That's when you get cash out to pay off all your debt. Like all your credit cards and even your car loan if you have one or to do renovations on your home.
Well, I hope this has answered some of your questions and good luck to you.
If you taxes are still high call the Broward County Property Appraisers Office. They are the ones the Appraise the value of the property for your taxes.

Stefanie Cohen PA, ABR, SFR answered:
Find a local agent who handles vacant lots. Make sure they have an internet presence, so they can market the property both nationally and internationally.

If you need a referral, I can certainly refer you to an experienced agent who handles vacant land.

Best of luck,

Catherine Kim Owens answered:
Usually there is no smell; however, I've golfed at Ecco and smelled some sulfa/sewer smells on occasion.
However, this complex was built after the new hurricane window regulations; therefore, wind resistent sliding doors will keep the smells out on the few occasions...

Good space, convenient location to everything, if you don't mind developments and similar looking homes.

I have a client who lives in the complex, with two kids, and she loves it there.

Let me know if I can be of service. I'm a realtor, mortgage broker, and property manager. I've lived near there for 12 years. I used to live in Montclair, NJ:)

Ange, If you really want to make sure your kids are exposed to music, you're probably better off seeking a good tutor, rather than a school with some vague program. I survived 8 years of choir with a mostly tone deaf choirmaster, but that's probably not something I should admit in public. And no, I don't play an instrument - or worse sing - today. ... more
