It was great viewing properties in east Fort Lauderdale with you this past weekend. I hope you're enjoying your cruise! I'm looking forward to reconnecting with you soon.

You can still buy a 1 or even a 2 bedroom across the street from the beach for $150K. The maintenance fees that close to the beach will be from high $300's to $500 depending on the number of bedrooms, the building, etc. If you are OK taking a 10 min walk to the beach, I will find you a 2 bedroom for under $100K with lower maintenance fees. BUT - nobody can predict what the prices would be like by the end of the year. If you wish, e-mail me for more information and advice:

Hello Bob,
I live and work in Lauderdale By The Sea. Therefore, I pretty much know the market here and the surrounding areas. First of all, I would need to know your specifications, such as how many bedrooms & bathrooms, also, would you like an ocean view or would an intracoastal or canal view be acceptable? Once I know the answers to these few questions, I can email you listings for you to review. Feel free to contact me at jenbabacan@live.com or by cell, (954) 648-7334 anytime.
Kind Regards,
Jen Babacan
