South Florida is a beautiful place to be and have been living here for 12 years. The Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Palm Beach areas are very nice areas.

If you are still looking give Anthony a call with Zip Realty! He specializes in that area and knows it very well. You may visit on-line at: or the zip link below .

Hi Pete!
I looked at Naples, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, Miami, North Port and Palm Bay! I am also considering Clearwater. The area that I really loved was Bradenton! I am looking for a newer and more spacious house, closer to 2000 sq ft for around a 100,000, but want to maximise on my investment dollars! I am also considering waiting for a while until March to buy. as I see that prices are continuing to decline!

Dear Lee, If you research why Cape Canaveral, now Kennedy Space Center was put there, it will show through weatehr statistics that most Hurricanes have hit the QWest Coast or went out to sea and went up the
coast to the Carolina's because of the Ocean Currents. But is also depends on other weather conditions also. Investing in properties will depend on what you are looking for in an area. such as sports available for adults, if you like boating and fishing and what type of fishing you may like the most, ho close are you to major attractions, how has the area grown and what is the trend for growth in the area, what improvements are being made for the future.

One question i have for you is, What parts of Florida have you visited? What area or areas did you like the best? Would you move to the area and buy a home? The last question is, how much investment are you wanting do do along with how much money can you invest at first?

Please contact me and we can put our heads together. I am in Brevard County, the Space Coast with Kennedy Space Center and on the East Coast.

Hi Lee,

Here's a sinerio we are ready to close on. Let us know if it works for you.

A 1,400 square foot home, 3/2/2, built in 2001 and in move-in condition, 15 minutes from beaches that will close for under $60,000.

We can provide the location, and the opportunity for seriously motivated buyers. NOW is the time for buyers to make their move.... Love to hear from people that are ready.

Good luck
