Buy on the beach or as close to it as you can afford. That is why this area of Florida was originally inhabited. You can live in the woods or some urban sprawl anywhere in the United States for a lot less money and a lot less satisfaction. In Florida, you want to be near the beach. There are plenty of great communities that are affordable near the beach. Follow your heart, and find someone that will help you get what you are really looking for. ... more

This is a very slippery slope and difficult to get accurate information. I would Google "Palm Club Village condominium association or property manager" and contact someone directly. Realtors often have incorrect information so better to be proactive. ... more

Dear Paul,

Both of these communities offer great homes and will give you a great return on your investment. Osprey has more homes backing up to the golf course, yet Madison Green is a great community as well.

What it will come down to is how much you want to spend on your new home and if you have a preference in the actual style of the home in either community as well as the view of the homes.

There are quiet a few factors to decide on which one is the perfect home for you, however I do believe you can't go wrong with either one of the communities.

Let me know if you would like to get a current list of all homes available in these communities.

No dogs are allowed to be rented out. You can however teach them to fetch and hunt , instead of lying around all day sleeping and then barking all night. Owners are not allowed to push pets around in strollers because they just look ridiculous.The owners that is , not the pets. ... more

The banks are all challenged,overwhelmed so what you really need is a realtor who is very knowledgeable about short sales who will stay on top of the listing agent, negotiator, bank. ALthough as buyers agent its "not our job" to do that its important your realtor takes control when things arent happening as they should and taking too long. The buyers agent should be in the loop at all times.
Too many listing agents say they know how to handle a short sale but they do not and things fall through the cracks, they dont do what they need to do in a timely fashion which can kill deals. Also be careful of the HOA's many of them make it difficult for all of us to close a deal.
Let me know how we can help. Forbes Realty specializes in short sales and foreclosures (my broker even teaches classes nationally). Best, Diana

I agree you need to check the police reports for the areas you are considering to move too!
Drive into the area on a Sunday and consider if it is for you!

The best prices is in Central County. It depends on what you want to spend and how fast you need to move. You can get a great deal in pre-foreclosures and foreclosures if you are patient and are ready to jump on a steal when it comes on the market ... more

I don't know how to say thank you, but I wanted to write a quick THANKS to all who answered! From everything I researched, JerseyGirl in PBC is right on the money about Emerald Isle... I had ruled out Ponte Verde before receiving the e-mail from Bargainhuntess09, but I thank you so much for reinforcing my decision!
Regarding Emerald Isle, I wanted to stay in one of the buildings toward the front (by the clubhouse) because the complex is large, but it's good to hear a resident's opinion. I am now in contract and buying a unit in Emerald Isle. The unit is a gorgeous 2 bed/2 bath, top floor with vaulted ceilings overlooking the lake. Absolutely awesome! Thank you all for your input.
