Diane Christner answered:
With most new construction in FL, the builder/developer retains control of the HOA until a specifically stated percentage of homes have been sold, generally in the 90%+ range. At that point the HOA control gets turned over to the residents of the community, although I have noted a few where the builder still maintained at least 2 or 3 seats on the board until the community was fully built out.

You'll have to read your bylaws, but most likely yes, the developer can amend the HOA covenants to not allow rentals if the developer deems it is in the best interests of the community.

If you don't like the rule changes, you have the option of lobbying to reverse it again AFTER the homeowners have taken over control of the HOA.

Annette Lawrence answered:
There are over 12 methods available to sell real estate traditionally.

In the distressed market of real estate there are 5 common methods to sell real estate.

In the bank foreclosed market there of 4 common ways to sell real estate.

All of these ways have multiple methods in which a buyer can submit a purchase offer.

In your case it is unknown if you are 'bidding' at the courthouse steps, at a Christie's auction, via Hubzu, at the county fair or through Homepath.

They are all different, with unique set of risks for the buyer and requirements imposed by the facilitator or seller. What is amusing to me is the overall cost of auction sales far exceeds the cost real estate professionals charge in a traditional sale.

In essence your question is so poorly defined, so cosmic, all one can to is tell a joke or two.

It would make sense that they are cooling towers for a power plant. I don't know a lot about power plants or cooling towns, but they probably don't make much extra noise. What is your concern about these things?

ABSOLUTELY get a home inspection BEFORE you close. I had a newly constructed home by a reputable builder install a defective, warped, rotted TRUSS! Luckily my home inspector caught this mistake. It could have resulted in a catastrophic life threatening event.

You have leverage "before" you close to have any repairs done so don't give up your bargaining power by closing and then waiting and waiting for the builder to repair "after closing".

All the best,

I just nailed a weekend rental there for December. They get booked solid early in Jan, Feb. Never been there but I look forward to it. I have a winter place outside of Floral City so an easy drive. My opinion for the desireability is that it has a real island atmosphere, quiet, not glitzy, and a very uniform climate compared to inland. If you buy a place, be prepared to lose it in a big storm or build on stilts. I would buy a cheaper shack and just kick back. ... more

You can list it on Zillow For sale by owner. These days majority of home buyers start looking online. I've seen a few homes listed on Zillow by owner but priced to high. They then remove it and list with an agent bring the price down and a few sold some of the others are still sitting there months later. Price a home right and it will sell. A real estate attorney can advise you on the contract and will ensure you cover yourself. ... more

You do not want to live in Chiefland or Cedar Key or Yankeetown or Inglis or any of those areas. There is nothing there, no pretty beaches, no wide variety of stores or good hospitals - you CAN not make a living in this region. You have to go all the way to Gainesville to have a chance. Most of the houses in Chiefland and areas around are old and in bad shape and in need of a lot of repair. Next door to Chiefland: Old Town and it is aptly named. There is a nuclear plant in nearby Crystal River which you can see from Cedar Key - I think it is shut down now - but still not a good thing. Chiefland is not known for its diversity or beauty - very little of that there. I swear when I am in Walmart in Chiefland - it and Winn Dixie are your only real grocery options - I feel like I am back in Alabama. I can't think of any reason to live there. Chiefland is not waterfront and not that close to the water. Cedar Key is the nearest waterfront town and will give you a little recreational distraction for a day or so, but Cedar Key will get old quickly because it has very little there, no nice beach, mostly closed down businesses, and it takes about 45-60 minutes to get out there. Not worth it. I used to live in Chiefland and was lucky to get out, but I sold my home for less than half of what I paid for it. Don't be stupid like I was. This asker is probably happily settled somewhere else by now, but a couple of others may want to know info from someone who is not an agent. But don't take my word for it, drive around and see what you think, do your research, just do not rely on agents for info. Good luck! ... more
