Looks like this is a trailer home and you wouldn't own the land beneath so it isn't real estate. Just be careful if you decide to go this route because when you don't own the land your mobile home sits on you will be at the mercy of the landlord for rent increases. If the land owner sells the land you may also have to relocate the mobile home.
Some mobile homes are actually real estate and you would own the land beneath.
Check out Briar Creek in Safety Harbor. It's very close to some of the nicest beaches in Pinellas County and a short drive to the airport and it has hospitals and all of the convenience of living in the high status community of Safety Harbor. Here are a few listings in Briar Creek:
Sure and although there are very few "preforclosure" properties where the owner actually has equity, you may be able to find the rare one. There will be other investors knocking on the owner's door so you will definitely have to compete with these sharks.
On a Short Sale then no the lender taking the often significant loss will require hte property to be listed for sale by a Realtor on the MLS system.
If you have all cash you can learn the ropes at the courthouse and buy at the auction. It's not for the risk averse and rookie, there are a lot of ins and outs. You may be able to hire someone to teach you the process. I think there are companies that will do that for a few thousand.

I have a copy of the governing documents for Mira Lago, send me an email or call me (if you get my voicemail leave your email address) and I can send you a pdf file.
Also if you want to search "like a Realtor" with full details about important items like Community Development District Taxes and HOA fees, go to my website and sign up for a free Listingbook account. Mira Lago owners are required to pay CDD taxes in addition to the HOA, fyi.

Hi Dan - We cannot tell you the criminal activity or whether a neighborhood is "good or not". Drive around the location you are talking about, speak with neighbors & call the local police department for specifics.

Contact your association board of directors. The ratio may have already been reached in your community. If your community has a professional property management firm they may also be able to tell you if the ratio has already been reached and whether or not you can sell to a non-55+ buyer.

If you go to Find a Pro in Trulia, and type in Ruskin, Fl, you should be able to find a local agent who would be able to give you the advice you need. Reading other agents replies to questions should give you a little idea about their expertise and the personalities.
Good luck in your search.

I usually encourage buyer's to get their own agent-- but I think that using the listing agent in a short sale can be a great idea. The deal seems to stay together that way. The listing agent automatically represents the seller, but ultimately it's up to the seller's lender to approve the sale. So the debate over dual agency is not as big a deal.
If you go with the listing agent, have her prepare a buyer CMA for you. Find out how much experience she has with short sales too-- If she doesn't know what she is doing, there is a good chance it might not work out. This can help ensure you are making the right offer on the property. If you opt not to use the listing agent, find one who has experience in short sales!
Be prepared to wait! Educate yourself as best as you can no matter what you decide to do, and be sure your agent is persistent.
Most bank owned homes can have the typical 30-45 days escrow. However, short sales can take anywhere from 60days-to 6 months depending on the short sale property. Each case is different based on how many loans (liens they have on the property), what mortgages they have, what the property is listed for vs. the actual home value in the area. Just because you get a pre-approval from BofA on short sales does not speed up the process at all. My advise is to go after Bank owned homes, or Approved short sale homes since the lenders have already approved and have agreed to accpet the price it is listed. I hope this helps.
Regarding the tax credit, please check out my website on my blog. It will give you answers to your questions.
If he/she is a buyers agent, simply say you no longer require their services.
If he/she is your listing agent you need to ask them to withdraw your listing and release you from the contract.

Lennar has probably the best builders incentives for Ruskin. Currently they are paying nearly all closing costs which can equate up to $11,000, using their preferred lender.
You can also take a FHA / VA loan with them on that.... more
