You still would be foolish to not have title insurance. Phrase the question any way you want BUT the answer is still the same. Not worth the gamble my friend.

Lou Molnar answered:
The answer is it is not mandatory unless the financing company requires it. BUT, a buyer of any property would be foolish not to get title insurance on any property they buy. It would be like buying a car without airbags but a lot more expensive chance taking. Get it and forget saving a few dollars. ... more

Depends where you buy. There may be CDD and/or HOA fees. Your closing fees would probably max out at 2% of the sales price. Olease provide more details for a better answer

Bill Szydlowski answered:

CDD means Community Development District. It is a public finance tool that developers use as a way to drive up their bottom line while passing on the infrastructure cost to the future homeowners of a community. They were meant to keep the cost of the home down and spread the infrastructure cost, such as lighting, streets, sewers, sidewalks, water, etc, over 10 years. They are collected as part of your ad valorem taxes. Unfortunately, they never go away since the district will always need money to make repairs, etc. to the infrastructure.
HOA means Home Owner Association. This is the organization that rules the Community and make sure the entry ways are kept up, the pool, parks (if any) are taken care of. and the deed restrictions, if any, are abided by the homeowners. Belonging to it may or may not be mandatory. Its' cost is usually minimal.

Hope this helps.

Mary London answered:
Certainly. A new home may not be the cheapest "deal" for you BUT it may be easier/cheaper to maintain for the first 10 years. The cheapest "deals" are "as is".....where no one warranties the property. It will be the most risk, to be sure. ... more

Hello Mph:

Your post was cut off saying that the price was r (?). You did not mean to say 'reduced' right? I went online and it said $334,900, actually increased.

Please clarify your question so we can help.
