Mortgage Broker responds:

If you are planning to obtain a Mortagge Loan, and want the best rate and terms, you had better take my advice!!!!

These FL condos, though at relatively good deals, are still considered "Toxic" properties by Banks! What any experienced listing agent will do is have a CONDO CERT done on the property when they take the listing.

However, many won't want to spend the $100 to $150 or are scared to ask the sellers to pay for it, but then wonder why so many potential buyer's loans take a nose dive before closing.

I'm looking at 2nd home beach condo this weekend and as a Mortgage Broker, I know better and once I identify a property, the very first thing I will do is get the CONDO CERT done. This is generally a 25 question form that the Property Mgmt. Co. completes which is like an X-Ray of what all is going on in the property, HOA, etc.

Contact me and I'll send you a copy of a Condo Cert to use.

James Williams III, PA answered:
Hi KK,

Single family homes will definitely have a better resale value than a condo. They are in demand more than a condo. However, the pro with a condo is that you will have less maintenance to deal with as an owner. Great areas are just a matter of working with a REALTOR like myself to help you determine the viability of the area for your return on investment. As far as research, visit a couple of websites to search and view if the property(s) are meeting your standards then discuss with the REALTOR; and I'm sure you will get great feedback.

Avalon Park is a very good area to live in. If your son/daughter is going to UCF, you may also want to take a look at Oviedo and the area around UCF, zipcodes 32820 and 32826.

Brian Mahoney answered:
That's a great question and I wish I had just one answer for you. Thing is, the rental market is moving so fast it makes our heads spin so I can imagine how you may feel. You should find one Realtor you like and work with them exclusively. I say this b/c if you look online by yourself you will only get Uber frustrated. Rental properties in the Orlando area are renting within days of being offered for rent, in short........ you will not have time to think or choose so.. IF YOU LIKE IT.....TAKE IT!!!
Most Realtor' will show you only one or two places if your lucky or just what they have in inventory so if you find a person you like stick with them. Remember our service to you is free, so please keep that in mind when shopping around.

I know of a few places.... call/email me what you are looking for.

Give you the best rental potential and return. Beware of Oviedo- which is within the 3 mile perimenter, but because of the family oriented neighborhoods, college rentals are forbidden. I am currently under pending contracts for 2 separate investors doing the same thing right now. Would love to talk to you more about your options. Feel free to email me at

I am always amazed at the useless answers we get from out-of-staters. I guess there is nothing happening in Kitty Hawk today.

Mrs. Bear, your question is quite normal and we hear it all the time now that the medical city is taking off. First, I think you will be surprised at how close the medical city is to the main UCF campus. It will basically be a quick drive up the 417 expressway.

It sounds like you trust the greatschools website, so what you really need is the school boundaries. You will find them at

Most if the neighborhoods between Lake Nona and UCF will be the kind of place that you are after.

Did you know that you can check out my references and the references of the other agents right here on Trulia? Ckick on my picture and read what my clients say about me and what the other agent’s clients say about them on their Trulia profiles. Pick the person you’d be most comfortable to work with. Of course I hope it’s me, but if not then best of luck to you.

Keith & Kinsey Schulz answered:
For most of our sellers cash hasn't made a huge difference as compared to a financed offer. Yes, it does eliminate the hurdle of a financing contingency. However, the seller ends up with cash in the end whether the sale is financed or cash. So, cash won't always get you a huge discount. The best thing to do is figure out what the property is worth to you, offer a bit less, and negotiate hard. We have seen properties go for 30% less than asking price to 10% above asking price. So, don't worry about what the asking price is, worry about at what point is it a reasonable price for you. ... more
