Usually the association fee is higher in a townhome versus a single family home because the insurance is included in the fee. Also many times the association is responsible for the roof, sometimes mowing the lawn, painting the exterior of the buildings every so many years, paving the driveway, etc. etc. In a single family home you would be responsible for all these items, hence the lower fee. ... more

If you want to live ON Young Circle, your options are limited because most buildings are commercial. You're pretty much left with Radius and a few buildings on Tyler and Polk Streets. However, if you don't mind walking a few blocks, your options multiply significantly. I walk (or ride) to both the downtown area and the beach. Very easy access to either.

The area has improved dramatically in the 5 years since I moved here and while it still has a ways to go, it's becoming a desirable area with a number of hot spots and I believe it will continue to improve.

Welcome to the "world of real estate." You are beginning your new career by asking the right question because understanding that your professional growth and agent that you will become depends heavily upon your continued collection of real estate knowledge. So making your choice based on a company's commitment to agent training is very important.

If I could provide you with a valuable tip that could make an important impact is to find an agent or agent team that would be willing to take you on and mentor you. This experience will offer you "in the trenches" type experiences with the benefit of experience and expertise to guide you. There are so many helpful things that you could do that would also contribute to you getting off on the right foot.

Best wishes,

You can get a good idea by checking out Craigslist, for annual rentals anyway.

Hi Toby,

Here's a very good site about living in an HOA community:

What some HOAs are doing is going ahead and foreclosing on properties (even if there is not equity because the first mortgage stays and is higher than the market value) and then immediately renting them out. You may want to attend your board meetings and suggest they do this--otherwise the owners who are paying will get stuck with paying their neighbor's fair share! Also a recent change allows an HOA to collect the back due assessments from a tenant. Your board of directors is probably taking the advice of a hired property management firm and unfortunately some of these companies do what is in their best interest and not the association they manage. Take an active role and start attending your board meetings to find out what your volunteer directors are doing to tackle the delinquent homeowner issue.

Hope this helps.

Happy New Year!

The biggest crime in Florida is when realtors perform a service and sellers give them a hard time in collecting it.
Outside of that Florida is a peaceful place to live all realtors will tell you that. On some occasion the peace and quiet of our tranquil lifestyle is momentarily interrupted by a frantic realtor getting upset when his buyer whom he or she spent months with decides to buy from an other realtor at an open house just out of real estate school.
For all other information regarding reported crimes by bad people contact our our good guys the cops.
We love our cops we have special relationship with them they chase down our cheapskate clients and give them a speeding tickets. We have a saying proud to serve. Click it or ticket. Realtors keep Florida safe and green remember and thank one in your neighborhood today.

Sometimes it is. You need to check you are not cutting down a tree in restricted wetlands. That is definitely going to be illegal. Otherwise, check with your town to understand regulations -- because tree cutting may be regulated by local ordinance even if not by state law. ... more

Hi, Dr. Mitchell,

I don't claim to know anything about houseboats, but posting your phone number and e-mail address on a public website such as Trulia may subject you to lots of unwanted attention and spam. You may wish to delete this question and repost without your personal information (which otherwise will last on the web forever.)
