There is no public way to look that type of information up as it would require reading each property's mortgage documents.

I recommend speaking with someone in the state of FLorida. You may take a hit temporarily on the FHA loan but if its all that is available to you right now, take it. Sounds lke you will have some equity when you purchase.

There are options out there, but like any legal contract, you need to read carefully, and know and understand all the terms. Have an attorney you trust go over it with you, if you need, so you're comfortable with the things you're agreeing to.

Every buyer should be doing their due diligence, regardless of the manner of sale.

Of great importance to a seller is the assurance of closing.
If your 'cash' offer clearly provides that assurance, then you have created an advantage.
If, however, your 'cash' offer introduces new risk, you may find your advantage negated.
Be aware, at the closing table, it all cash.
You should turn to your agent regarding the lower price offer. Be aware, in a low inventory situation, the 'pretty houses get a lot of attention.

Hi, Ruth. I see that you were asking spcifically about Cypress Trace in Safety Harbor. As the other agents have said, the fees vary depending primarily based on the size of the unit and what amenities/services are included in the monthly fee. I currently have a very nice 2/2 condo for sale in Cypress Trace and the monthly maintenance fee is $380.00.

Please call me if you would like more information or would like to see any of the condos currently for sale at Cypress Trace.

Hi, Janette. Ted is correct. Bay Woods in Safety Harbor is a very nice neighborhood in a desireable area. Unfortunatley, several homes in the immediate area have had subsidence/settlement issues. I am very familiar with the area neighborhoods and would be happy to help you to find a home that fits your needs and wants.
