Good Morning Syoungyun;
Taxes are paid in arrears by the owner; so you will only be responsible for the taxes starting the date that you close on the property.
Most of the closing costs (title search, prep, documentary stamps) are paid for by the seller.
Your costs would be the amount of the purchase, the cost of your structure and termite inspections (about $300.00), and, if you are financing, any of your lenders costs.
Please let me know if I can be of help in your purchase of this or any other property in Melbourne.

I believe that prices all over will continue to decline for a period of time yet. Many people are selling now because they are realizing that they cannot make their payments anymore based on their ARM changes, and the fact that they are afraid they will be upside down if they aren't already. With all the people who are selling and going into foreclosure they do need somewhere to live so the rental market is stable. If you have any questions on a property just give me a call at 321-960-3577. ... more

Dear Paul,
How confident are you that the Space Shuttle program will shut down? I have to think that this national asset will always be active. They may slow it down, but research and testing will always continue. My husband retired from the military as a naval officer and he would enjoy talking to you about your move. We work with a few very good agents in the area and I am sure we can help you make the right decision.

Flips only with an extremely low purchase price/so you can still resale low, and only if you are willing to keep it on the market for a while, but you could rent for a few years and then sell. That's where the money is to be made now.

Supporting the improvement of environmental conditions are efforts certainly not limited to those in the Real Estate profession but it's certainly a cause many of us do support with our time and our dollars.

Florida has it's pro's and con's in the area of the environment. We have so many different ecosystems in our state because of the nature of the land and all of it's shore line. One can never do enough and the land and oceans have to be shared by all including those who can't speak and don't vote... it's always important to understand the trade offs.

I'm not sure what is "harmful" about the specific Blooms you reference, or the specific health hazard that's created by those Blooms. And the perception of whether it's viewed as a wide spread health hazard will have more to do with what harm the blooms cause to people / animals and other plant life and it seems like the state would be taking eradication of such harmful substances pretty seriously.

I found some interesting websites on Harmful Algae Blooms

Fl. Fish and Wildlife seems to be pretty involved in the issue and USF seems to provide a good deal of research support too. I'm sure Univ. of FL is studying this issue too.

I did notice that there may be some economic and environmental conflicts in the issues that create the increase in these Blooms. No doubt these issues are being fought out in Tallahassee and DC. If fertilizer by-products in soil run off are the culprit, then you'll have some strong arguments on both sides of this issue - as Florida is one of the largest agricultural states in the US and the industries that support these trades involve a lot of real estate. That definitely doesn't mean that farmers and Realtors wouldn't care, I think there's an education issue here and perhaps you can take the helm by providing real estate groups with greater details and information, and by suggesting some groups that our colleagues can participate in. Waterfront land is certainly the prize of our state, we would not want to do anything to jeopardize it.

Help us understand the issue better and how we can get involved!

There are currently 95 lots listed in Palm Bay. The lowest is $11,700--the highest is $194,900. Please visit the link below:

Just enter the specifics of what you are looking for. The interface is not pretty, but it is very accurate. This site will show MLS listed properties (homes and land) for the entire state of Florida.

Best wishes and happy hunting!

Call every traveling nurse company you can find in your area. They usually rent furnished apartments and run an ad on craigslist too.

Good luck
