Since you did not post the listing link from Trulia does it show that it is for rent or for sale?

This property is a Condotel. Owners have use of a unit in the building for 179 days a year, and in exchange for having their unit rented out, they have ZERO association fees. As an owner, you are not guaranteed your own unit when you come to stay, the unit is part of a rental pool. This is not a typical arrangement, and Condotels are low in price because of this fact.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.
Thanks, Les Zunk

Have you been there?
Like golf & trails?
There are many choices there.
I can show you townhomes, condo' s or homes.
The existing were actually higher homeowner's realized they weren't competitive with the builder's new price points. There are probalby hidden costs somewhere in the new builds because the new ones were selling for more and maybe the upgrades or closing costs are listed differently in the pricing sort of like the way airlines now charge for baggage but lower the fly seat price.

In an existing home sometimes they give you incentives and you can ask for things in your offer even closing costs.

This is not as close to the beach as the rest of New Smyrna it is just west of i-95 close to Port Orange and there is a brand new Walmart and low price gas station nearby now.

Let me know when you will be in town.
I will be happy to oblige.
Monika is my e-mail for your convenience

Owners are permitted to have small pets at Sun Beach Club.

The HOA fees include building insurance, common grounds maintenance ( pool & grounds), cable, pest control, trash and often have a percentage that goes to a reserve account.

Feel free to contact me for assistance with your search.

Over 90%. Actually depends on the kind of property (short sale, regular, bank owned) and location/subdivision not to mention condition.

I would do both. Both on the market to sell and also rent now.

If you need to sell now, there are now plenty of buyers but they are all looking for bargains. If you can get a decent amount of rent then rent it to folks who know that it can be shown. We do rentals for people who are in the same situation.

You'll find a drastic difference in rental prices, depending on the location. Obviously, oceanfront units will differ from ocean views, river front, or smaller units on the mainland. I have an excellent web site that may help. I don't handle rentals, so I'll just provide the information for you on my blog, in the link below. I hope this helps. ... more

Travous Dever answered:
Of course there is a softening market. There is too much inventory and not enough serious buyers. However, if you are a buyer now is the time to buy. We have almost hit the rock bottom with prices. Once that happens prices will leval off and then after time they will start to go back up. Our job is to inform people of when that bottom hits before it goes up. ... more
