Having purchased a new home after we quickly sold our last home (within the past year) and watching sites like trulia, I can only conclude concerning the areas we were watching. Atlanta Metro has gotten better for sellers. The areas rural (like ours) still aren't up to par, but most homes in better school districts are selling within a month. Values here started out high last Fall but fell approximately 5 percent late summer. Values in SW Florida went up on a middle class type home about $50,000 (I watched and realized I lost my chance at the remaining auction or bancruptcy/short sales left) The other region I watch (mid to N.E Ohio) went up this spring and now probably due to weather approaching have lowered about $5,000 to $10,000.
I don't think we can make any sure statement except if the number of homes available is down, then it is more a sellers market. When new builds compete with older homes it is harder to sell comparative sq. footage homes unless you price your home lower than new builds.
I'm not a realtor, just watch the stats and discuss things with good realtors.

The cove is a unique entity in and of itself. It is primarily single family homes, however there are apartments at what we refer to as the "bottom" or lower part of the cove. This causes there to be a different type of resident living there, as they are not fancy apartments, if you catch my drift. The top of the cove is completely different. That is why homes at the top of the cove are typically more expensive.
Everyone watches out for each other, and we have a number of law enforcement, or former law enforcement folks living there.... more
Monthly Homeowner's Association (HOA) fees vary based on what is included like amenities, maintenance for the home or community. It all depends what the HOA offers to the community and how they price everything all together. I would recommended calling the local HOA and having them give you what is included in the fees.
Hope this helps!
Hello marj.parto, if you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. The rentals in Riverside start from $750 for 1bd 1ba condo and up.
You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.
Beware of the many rental scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service.
