Sometime cash is the only option because the structure doesn't meet the qualifications for a home mortgage, either due to structural damage or incomplete construction.

We think this is a very good deal. Nice clubhouse, very friendly folks. Lots of part timers. The first building has 3 bdrms and two baths with an actual dinning room/area separate from the kitchen and very large great room.
We rented sight unseen and are very pleased at the size. The decor leaves a lot to be desired but that is a matter of taste.
Talked with a builder of another complex who told us that the HOA here is not well funded but we have seen no evidence of that. We have seen workers, landscapers and pool maintenance here every day.
We would consider a purchase here. Retired college professor and business owner.

There are very few apartment buildings in this area. What apartments were you inquiring about? There are condos. Some are pet friendly, others are not. There are usually pet size, weight and number of pet restrictions. Most condos do not allow pets for tenants, only for owners. ... more

I can send you the current MLS listings or you can search for properties on my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remaxagent.com/. Some properties you can bid online and don't have to be there in person. Others you just place an order. It depends on what company has it listed and what type of auction.

There are several builders in that area. I would be happy to send you the list so you can visit their web sites and get more detailed information. Many of the builders have several floor plans to choose from. Some have pricing on their web site, others are custom builders. The cost would also depend on whether you are building on your own lot or the builders lot.

Pamela Civitillo answered:
Yes there are some available. They will probably ask for non refundable pet fee though. In case there are any accidents or fleas show up in the home. I know that your pet is probably very clean, but accidents happen and also we are very sandy and warm here, you may not have fleas where you live, but as soon as you get here take your furry friend to vet to get some flea and tick medication. I do that and my baby has never had any fleas.

Please contact me if you want the name of some rental agencies.

There were quite a few, but now Rotonda West
emerged with a big come back after the bubble.

There are very few left, because they are snapped up. Rotonda West is a deed restricted area with 8 golf courses within 5 minutes of the area. It is 15-20 minutes from the Gulf Coast Beaches---Englewood, Manasota, Boca Grande......The homes are well kept, thanks to the HOA there, they make sure your neighbor doesn't let their home and yard get nasty. Europeans love Rotonda West for Vacation Rentals during the season. It is also well liked by our Tampa Bay Rays when they come her for spring training, because the homes are nice.

If you would like more information about the area, please contact me.

There are quite a few builders that build in Rotonda. Go to the Charlotte DeSoto Building Industry Association and use the directory. There are some builders listed there with their contact information.

Pets are permitted under the condo association rules for The Chatham. But you would have to check with the agent that has this rental listed to see if the owner will allow a cat.

Kathy Damewood answered:
I agree with all of the answers posted.. my guess is whatever website you are getting the information from - that a property is "pre-foreclosure" means that the bank has filed the foreclosure lis pendens, which is the first legal filing in a foreclosure action. Keep in mind that the average time for a foreclosure in Florida is some 671 days... So don't fall in love with any of these "pre-foreclosure" homes - alot can happen in that 671 days (more or less) that will prevent that house from EVER coming on the market...

Tammy Hayes answered:
Home prices have been low for a few years since the downturn of the market, but prices are on the rise again since October of 2011. We are also seeing our inventory decreasing. Here is a link to the Rotonda West Homeowner Association web site - http://www.rotondawest.org/

Most of the homes in Rotonda are in the AE Flood Zone - Areas of 100-year flood; base flood elevations and flood hazard factors determined.

You can search www.floodsmart.gov for any home to see the flood zone rating and it will give you a range of insurance rates as well as insurance companies to contact.

During the time that Florida was experiencing building material shortages, some homes were built or renovated using defective drywall. Defective drywall reportedly emits levels of sulfur, methane or organic compounds that cause corrosion to A/C, refrigerator, copper plumbing, electrical wiring, computer wiring, and other houshold items. It may pose health risks. You can have your home inspector look for signs of defective drywall.

In Florida, you can have a Defective Drywall Addendum as part of the contract, but you are also covered under the inspection period as written on your purchase contract. You have the right to have the home inspected and back out of the contract during that inspection period. It could be anywhere from 7 to 15 days, depending on how it is written up.

If I can help with anything or answer any other questions, please contact me.
