Hi Angielee,

Anything in close walk to any beaches in the entire country is always a good to a best neighborhood to be in for they are by far the #1 locations every one wants (or, at least, dreams to one day live on a beach). Remember the old saying: "Location, location, location!).

That being said, if your husband is to work in Fort Lauderdale, then, Fort Lauderdale's "east-side" (along the beach) will be where to look (if your husband will work north Fort Lauderdale, then you can also consider south Pompano Beach, and so on). But, if you don't mind long commuting drives, then, Delray Beach (about 25 miles away) or South Beach (also 25 miles away) are also great areas to live.

However, Fort Lauderdale is really a small town with a big, BIG attitude loaded with tons of civic activities, theaters, zillion of restaurants, exciting night life, GREAT SCHOOLD (public or private) and a huge International Airport only 15 minutes drive to. If you get bored living in Fort Lauderdale, don't blame Ft Lauderdale ;-)

For your budget of "...up to $2,000/month..." it should not be difficult to get you in a condo (not a house) within a short walking distance to the beach on a yearly lease. If you want a house, you will need to be in-land within 10-15 minutes drive to the beach.

Welcome to Fort Lauderdale!

A quick check of the NWMLS database shows that there are 71 properties in Seattle priced at $150,000, or less. Even with the soaring real estate market there are investment properties --in your price range-- available in almost every neighborhood in the city.

In terms of appreciation, your best bet is usually a single-family home. A condo in a convenient location is also worth considering, but there may be rental restrictions associated with a condo which are imposed by the condominium Homeowner's Association. You don't have to worry about that with single-family homes.

You're likely to get more for your money in SE Seattle or SW Seattle, but you're not limited to the southend of the city. Start by choosing a neighborhood with good schools and easy access to public transit. From there, it comes down to personal preference, location, price, etc. Good luck with your search.

Overbidding is everywhere in the current Bay Area:

Current Bay Area Market NOT A Bubble: Top 5 Buyer Recommendations

Tough Year Ahead: Top 10 Issues Facing Bay Area Buyers

Like many Alameda County Realtors, I spend time almost every day writing offers. Each offer represents a client’s hopes, dreams and aspirations and, in many cases, their frustrations as offer after offer meets with rejection. While it’s true that we ARE getting offers accepted, when you have one property and thirty hopefuls, at the end of the day, only one gets the keys. The remaining twenty-nine go off to the succeeding round of open houses hoping to get lucky the next go-round. While some buyers may fade away in defeat, others join in the dance bringing new energy and hope to the melee.

While house after house comes on the market only to disappear just a few days later, one constant remains: multiple offers. It’s been so long since we’ve experienced a “normal market in the Bay Area – either we have a down market with multiple houses and one offer … or today’s red-hot market with one house receiving multiple offers. The trick is to figure out what type of market you are currently in and leverage that market to your advantage.

Since we’re currently in a seller’s market and multiple offers are a given, it’s important to understand the existing market metrics. In a recent meeting with Central County agents, Carole Rodoni,* President of Bamboo Consulting, outlined the following guidelines:

List Price Price per offer submitted
$200,000-$400,000: increase of $2,500-$5,000 for every offer including yours
$400,000-$800,000: increase of $7,500-$10,000 for every offer including yours
$800,000-$2,000,000: increase of $12,000-$15,000 for every offer including yours
$2,000,000 and above: increase of $20,000-$25,000 for every offer including yours

While it’s obvious that there are no absolutes here – every home receiving offers is different based on condition, amenities, location and a number of other factors – these formulas at least provide a framework with which to begin. The fundamental key is determining whether or not any give property’s list price is realistic – if it’s low, you have to adjust upwards; high, you tweak it down. Another key is trying to get feedback from the listing agent as to how many offers are either already in hand or anticipated.

Thinking of simply writing an offer at list price? Your chances in the current market closely resemble those of a snowball in a very hot place … it may look pretty for a few seconds, but will quickly disappear in a burst of steam.

*Carole Rodoni was formerly President of Fox and Carskadon Real Estate, Chief Operating Officer of Cornish and Carey Real Estate, and President of Alain Pinel Realtors.

Hello Miz Repped;

I cannot give you an exact time frame as to how long it would take to increase your credit score, but I do know that a mortgage broker can run your score free of charge provided you eventually work with that broker. The score include all three bureaus which will indicate what steps you'll need to take in order to raise your score to 680 asap. You can also to and pay a fee and run your score yourself and determine what you need to do. That choice is yours! If you need to be in contact with a good mortgage broker that can help you get a home through various low down payment programs, call me @ 954-557-3416 and I'll be glad to give you his contact info.

This area is super hot right now. I live just a few blocks west of here (almost bought east of Ashland) and they are tearing down everything and building new. I also really like the newest finishes and apparently everyone else does also because it sells quickly. There are some great properties available and we love the neighborhood.

Although this pertains to East Village, just west of Ashland, it's interesting to note just how much new construction is happening in the area:

According to Bing maps it says it is 40 minutes from the center of downtown to the center of the town of White Bluff. However it depends on which side of Nashville and to where in White Bluff you are going. I would say it is closer to 45 minutes due to the fact that you have to take back roads. If you took the hwy it would take longer, again depending on starting and ending point. ... more

Plantation Florida was mainly built in the 1970's and 1980's. Hawks Landing is one of the new home communities although the homes are from the $600,000's to the millions. Artesia is a newer town home/ condo community close to Plantation where prices are in the high $200,000's to the $300,000.00's. You may need to select a few cities to meet your request.

You are able to find a condo/townhome although the year will more than likely be older than 6 to 7 years old.

You can start by looking at my website and see if there are any homes that interest you. All the homes on the Lubbock Multiple Listing Service can be viewed there. But the best advice is to select a realtor and meet with him or her and discuss your needs. Getting pre-qualified for a loan so that you know the price range to look is also key to efficiently finding the right home for you.

The city is still working out its debt issues and being allowed to declare bankruptcy will help in righting the ship. As far as the housing market, now is an excellent time to buy. Low interest rates and affordable housing make it a great time to buy. Weston Ranch is an area that your dollars can go a long way.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give me a call.
