You need an attorney otherwise you're wasting your time. You could try speaking you with the Florida Attorney General's office and can file a complaint with the Florida Real Estate Commission (link below) against both builder and Realtor, though you must be able to proce they knew the house had been hit by lightening. ... more

LECANTO HAS A VERY HIGH ELEVATION..... concerning sinkholes, a sinkhole is usually a limestone cave that collapses and causes a depression and is common throughout the SouthEast USA..... but I haven't seen them very often in Lecanto. You can get a property checked by contracting a company that does underground engineering with special equipment. ... more

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Des27,

Not sure where you are coming from but use this link ...

http://cgi.money.cnn.com/tools/costofliving/costofliving.html

It tracks cities, so you figure which one is closest to where you live. I would use Gainesville for here and subtract maybe 5% more. Here is what happens when I plug in my hometown of Boston where I moved from and 100,000 income ...

If you move from Boston, MA to Gainesville, FL....
Groceries will cost: 9% less
Housing will cost: 33% less
Utilities will cost: 29% less
Transportation will cost: 1% less
Healthcare will cost: 25% less

Not a perfect science, but it might help. Good Luck.

You are going to have to check with our local rental agencies. We wish it was like our MLS system, but, it is not. Each Rental agency has different rentals available.
You could call Robin @ ERA American Realty to start, right on 491 in Beverly Hills.
Good luck

David Bramblett answered:
Hey Mike,
Like a few of the others here have stated, if you are working with a Realtor, you should be able to get a good price range of what homes are selling for. An offer that is based on facts from the area will stand a much better chance of getting accepted than an offer that is just "thrown out there" per se.

Quick question, why are you looking at the foreclosed home for $180k when the new homes are listed @ $150k? Most times repairs are always underestimated. If you think the home needs $10k in repairs, it's probably more like $15-20k. At that amount, you could make a reasonable offer on the new home, get the warranty(if offered) and save yourself the headache and aggravation.

Either way, I hope things work out for you.it sounds like you are doing your homework, which is what's needed to assure yourself you're doing the right thing.
