I would go to www.neighborhoodscout.com. This breaks down different sections of North Port, as to the safest areas to live. I live in North Port, and according to that site I am in a safer section of North Port. In my opinion I agree with what the site says. ... more

I haven't been able to find a local lender that will, but I have a customer that says a lender will in another state. I would call a few lenders and ask the question.

This home is located in Cypress Falls at the Woodlands. There is an annual HOA fee of $276 plus a monthly maintenance fee of $282, plus CDD fee of $1,435 per year plus taxes. Fees vary with the single family home versus the villas in this community. If you would like to see any of the homes or have questions, please contact me. I would be happy to help.

Cypress Falls at the Woodlands is an upscale, resort, gated 55+ community located in North Port, FL which is in southern Sarasota County. It is just off of the Gulf coast and is close to Charlotte Harbor and has easy access to I-75 from Toledo Blade Blvd. North Port has been growing for several years and there are shopping, grocery, golf, medical facilities, fishing, beaches, dining, and more within a short driving distance.

Cypress Falls offers social, leisure, and recreational activities for the active baby boomer. The 16,000 square foot clubhouse has a state-of-the-art fitness center, two swimming pools, whirlpool, billiards, card room, Internet café, arts and crafts room, grand ballroom, putting green, yoga room, bocce ball, and tennis. There is a full-time Lifestyle Director to help organize activities and help residents with their recreational plans.

Cypress Falls is designed to help support active adults. Some of the social events that residents are involved in are afternoon teas, happy hours, themed potluck, bus trips, wine and cheese social, movie night, ice cream social, pool parties and luaus. In addition, the community has organized several clubs to encourage residents to stay active and get to know their neighbors. Some of the groups and clubs include social/programming club, card club, canasta, travel club, book club and walking club. They also have basic painting, knitting, scrapbooking, quilting, digital photography, computer learning classes, and wellness classes.

Commercial doesn't affect real estate. Types of crime, availability of high paying jobs, and social calm all effect sale price. Not all dollar generals are put in poor parts of town. If it is a high traffic road I would have to say otherwise. Step outside. If your neighbors are more apt to stare, yell, shout, cry, criticize, slack off, nit pick rather than wave, giggle, garden, with quiet and peace. You can kiss your home value goodbye. ... more

Tammy Hayes answered:
This home is located in the gated, golf community of Bobcat Trail in North Port. The taxes are so high because the community has a Community District Development (CDD) fee of $1622.00 per year which is added into the taxes making the total of $5,001.00 for this home for 2012. Keep in mind that after a property is purchased the home is re-assessed. What the current owner is paying is not necessarily what you would pay. It could go up or down. The current owner does have a homestead exemption.

If you would like additional information on Bobcat Trail, this home, or any other homes in the area, I would be happy to help. You can search for properties on my web site too.

I moved down here from N.Y. over 12 years ago. The first couple of years was culture shock and I had to get use to things moving at a much slower pace down here compared to N.Y. Once you get over the culture shock, you will see that North Port is a nice place to live. ... more

To answer your question, yes there is many places in Florida that excepts section 8. Because it is a federally funded program you can transfer it from state to state through a process called "portability" through HUD. ... more

He should have E and O insurance (errors and ommissions). You need to call him and find out (or check his website). If he does, ask for the information. If he doesn't, ask your attorney how to proceed.

Antonio Vega-Pacheco answered:
Most agents will be able to provide you that information and even more details, just by asking, and for free. Sites like Trulia provide very little info, and not all accurate, just to keep people coming back for more. Contact your agent and if you don't have one then use the "Find and Agent" button in the Trulia green search bar above. ... more

Jeff gave you good advice - it depends on where you are at in the foreclosure process. A short sale is a much better option if it is not too late. I specialize in short sales and will be more than happy to explain the process to you if you are not familiar with it. You can email me at leecountyrealtor@earthlink.net or give me a call at 239-707-4575 ... more
