I am currently selling my 3/2 that has been totally remodeled. 5907 NW 52nd Terrace This is a steal and is listed for less than I purchased it in 2006. There are over 40k in improvements. I wish I could keep it, this is a great neighborhood and I hope I can find one like it in West Palm. Call Tiffany Thomas Realty if interested. This home won't last and backs up to Devils Millhopper.

Here is the situation I encounter. I was looking at Williams Island, building 2000, unit 2308. The combined HOA (building + property) was close to $1900, I do not remember exactly. I turned it down obviously. Now this property advertises with HOA $1000 on one site and $468 on another. So my question - is it allowed to lie about HOA ? Could seller to negotiate lower HOA with condo management to make property more attractive ? If none of it is true, than what is the explanation for discrepancy ? ... more

You are right the association should fix the walls and gutters.
Pretty soon you are likely to have lo mold, and start getting sick.

As Don, below indicated get a lawyer or write a letter with proof of mailing.
Then get an attorney to write a letter.

Good luck

Not from the same location, built by the same builder, may appear to be the same, however, to the buyer each home is very individual.

Consider comparing your home to the others from the price, condition, and appeal perspective and I'm sure you will be able to appreciate the difference....again, the buyers will!

Just keeping it real!

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities 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.

Todd Gagliano answered:
The lender I use recently told me about a loan program he has that sounds like a perfect fit for you and it's conventional not FHA. This can be very advantageous based on the recent change to the FHA program requiring mortgage insurance for the life of the loan. You will need PMI on a conventional deal but my lender will pay for it upfront for you!
Let me know if you would be interested in speaking with him.

I had a similar situation last month. It was resolved at the closing by attorney requesting county assessor's office to update their records with correct address. It delay the closing by 2 days, so I would advise getting your attorney to fix the issue prior to closing. Good luck.
