Both are 55+ mobile home park communities where you do indeed own the land. Each community has their own set of rules, regulations, pet restrictions etc. You can find details at each of their web sites:

http://holidayparkfl.com/

http://www.palmbaycolony.org/

Most of the roads in Holiday Park are meandering ways and the roads in the back of the park feature some big oaks with Spanish moss. The roads in Palm Bay Colony are mostly straight cut.

Holiday Park has HOA fees ($2097/year - roughly $175/month) paid thru the property taxes. Check with your tax professional to see if there is an advantage to that come April 15. The HOA includes basic cable, lawn cutting, use of 2 pools (one heated), clubhouse; laundry, media room, and shuffleboard. The entire park is gated with a 24 hour manned guard at the gate.

Palm Bay Colony has no required HOA fees, however if you wish to use the clubhouse, pool or any of the social activities, to must join. If the unit that you purchase already has a membership, then you are in, if not you'll have to pay a membership fee and pay the monthly fees. There are no gates at any of the entrances. You maintain your own grass.

All of the homes in Palm Bay Colony are double wides & mostly newer than Holiday Park, and the prices are therefore a tad bit higher. You can still get a good valued single or double wide at Holiday Park.

The best thing to do is visit them both to see which appeals to you. I'll gladly take you around.

Kellie,

When you say "close to the water" do you mean the beach? Titusville is like Palm Bay in that there isn't really an easy access point to the beach and it would mean a drive. Vero and Sebastian are great areas but I'm not sure if they are any less expensive then the area you are in now. What is it that you don't like about the area you are in now that you wouldn't be looking for a home there? It is relatively low priced and there is a lot of inventory. If I had more information I could definitely help direct you to a location that would meet your needs.

Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Many things can affect your mortgage payment such as your interest rate, length of mortgage, and insurance (shop around every year this is an important thing not to forget- my agent at nuview shops many companies for me so I don't have to do the leg work, but it is important to do it every year, not just the first year.

The home also might be in a flood zone, which could add a substantial amount to the insurance, which could be included in the payment amount.

Best of luck

Lori Jeltema answered:
I have written many purchase contracts with clauses that the seller pay X amount of $ towards various items associated with buyer's closing. To that list,, I add inspections.

If there is enough of the buyer's money (and if it's approve by the buyer's lender) my buyer has POC'd these invoices and gotten reimbursed at closing. The other alternative is to have the inspector hold the fee on thebuyer's credit card and have a check written at settlement to the inspector. An inspection fee is like any other closing associated fees (survey, appraisal, etc.,) and,, if the contract is written correctly and the lender is briefed, can be covered in the closing costs. For a VA buyer, a seller can pay a portion of a VA debt so your lender may be able to authorized the payment to be made at settlement that way. Of course, this is providing that the seller is wiling to contribute enough at closing to cover all these items. I always leave a little lead way in my wording regarding settlement contributions just in case we have a little money left over. That way, it can be applied to the sale somehow. ... more

Evictions are hard to overcome but if you find a Realtor that you want to work with and explain the situations which lead to the eviction, preferably in writing so that the Realtor can have it for the owners, you will find that your search will be less taxing. Many times people go from Realtor to Realtor thinking they are saving time, but in fact they just find themselves telling their story to multiple agents and burning themselves out. My suggestion is find someone who has the time to give you and stick with them till the end.

Best of Luck

Ann Ryan answered:
Usually it is the buyer rather than the seller who pays for the inspection (except for termite inspections on VA homes). The only expense commonly seen by sellers before closing is repairs and upgrades.

I do recommend that:

1) you replace any carpet with laminate, wood or tile floors (most Florida buyers don't like carpet)
2) you return any colorful walls to a more neutral tone
3) you ensure that any minor repairs are taken care of.

Best of luck,

A condo or coop is a great way to get used to home ownership. Since you have limited maintenance responsibilities it might make a better transition then jumping right into a house, unless it's new.
