This can be wide, as if the seller knew, they should have disclosed. If it is on the deed, then who you hired for the deed search should have seen it. One who is not responsible but should have seen it is the bank that gave you a mortgage who would have reviewed the deed too. You may want to speak to a lawyer ... more

The down payment is set by the seller, and that depends on their circumstances, what they need from the transaction. If you cannot make a reasonable, small down payment and feel secure that you can make your monthly payments, think twice. The seller might be willing to work with your finances or not, but even if they're a lenient family member, having something you can't afford is stressful for all parties. There is a good overview on all the ins and outs of seller financing at's definitely written for readers new to the topic! ... more

You can find monthly rentals in Daytona if you keep an eye out. Depending on your price range AirBnB can be a good place to look since many people rent out their homes that way in the summer and give discounts for staying a month. I recently saw one that offered 25% off for a monthly rate! Best to book early though. ... more

I have a friend Karen that has a home in Holly Hill that is 3/2 bath furnished NO POOL but close to the inter coastal that she rents out.
Also, if you go onto : you can sign up under me FREE and then look at booking through airbnb. It is a great site for selecting what you want. I would rent you my home in Holly Hill but it is booked already by some folks from Boston for winter months. If you have any questions feel free to let me know. If you go through then you can put a filter on exactly what you want and for the price that you want.

Good luck,
Ms. Honey

I completely agree with you about ICI Homes Ici Builders. I know your pain! the one sided HORRIFFIC contract tells you everything. Sadly though, most folks don't read it all the way through. The Warranty 2-10 HB company is an EQUAL in the criminial like actions to ICI in my opinion. Basically the HBW 2-10 Warranty, it covers NOTHING except if a wall caves in or a roof collapses. Everything else IS NOT COVERED. Take an ICI contract to any attorney and be prepared to be told DO NOT SIGN THIS! They do not "build" anything, they hire CHEAP unskilled labor / sub contractors to build your Home. Ici Homes is a front in my experience, they don't pick up a hammer themselves, they have useless Supervisors that do nothing in my opinion. save yourself the heart ache and anger . If you asked me about my experience, I would say STAY AWAY from ICI Homes Julington Creek, Magnolia Preserve Ormond Beach , Grande Haven, Plantation Bay, Tamia Tamaya Jacksonville Florida Builder ICI homes.
The "work" the sub contractors and day laborers performed on my home is HIDEOUS. Absolutely HIDEOUS. low quality materials, used bumpy cracked banged up wood finishes, paint that does not hold up for more than a few months, cracked floors, cracked corners,dry wall that is wavy bumpy coated thickly, wrinkles, painted over and over, corners with NO TAPE, no drywall tape in corners, just a thick finger of uneven caulk. Who does that? ICI Homes of Jacksonville, that is who built the home I am speaking of. ICI builders, ICI Homes, Jacksonville Builder, Intervest Construction

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Condo associations don't have deadlines so they can take as long as they want. More important, you need to contact one of the members of the HOA directly and be persistent. Explain that you expect them to review your application promptly and be notified by a specific date. This will put pressure on the HOA to review your application.

You need to understand that it's possible members of the HOA have full time jobs, family responsibilities, etc. OR they can be lazy and get to resident applications when they feel like it. This is why as a resident, you need to get involved and contact them directly.

If you have the cash, then buying cash is less expensive and easier. The exception is if you can use that cash and make a great income from it then the mortgage you may pay, get a mortgage, This is where you should ask your cpa and your buyer broker who both can outline costs or savings of each ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Why is your credit score so low? You need to work hard and improve your credit before buying anything. Although some lenders can give loans with FICO credit scores between 580 and 620, they will punish you by charging higher interest rates and higher fees. Buyers with higher credit scores get rewarded with low interest rates and low fees.

You need to ask yourself WHY do you want to pay high interest rates for a 30 year loan? You are wasting thousands of dollars that you could save for something else. Remember interest rates will increase so if you think you will refinance in the future, you can't because of the increased interest rates.

Continue renting and saving.
