Sinkholes was my stripper name.


Sounds like something a Florida Man Golfing Stripper might say for sureπŸ‘πŸ˜†
You're on Par.

My husband lived in Florida for over 20 years.He would flip a coin
with one of his teenage children to see who would go outside and
start the car and the A/C. The reason was because the mosquitoes
could drain you dry while getting to your car.
Also,the state is being over run by snakes that get big enough to start
eating the alligators.Then,there are the alligators,do you really want
to go to Florida?


I don't know if Id live in Florida unless I was on the beach or very close by. Have heard the iguana population has gone berzerk as well as the snakes.

Nice, may be worth looing into building a 40 foot tall ornamentally disguised sea wall around any house you buy there, oh not for you but for your children and grandchildren and great grandchildren if they are in it for the long term.

It the oldest European settlement (officially and not including Indian that looked eerily like Norwegian Vikings further north) in North American but it is also a city that is slowly becoming ever more vulnerable to sea level rise and is likely to be lost to your history eventually as the region is inundated barring a federal action by your government to build a real sea wall and some lowland drainage pumping stations which I hope they do.

I wish you well and am a tiny bit jealous, you know just a tiny wee bit haha.

Iguanas were the least bothersome of all creatures when I lived there.

I put a bug trap in the garage for ants, and went in there to see a 3 ft snake got caught on it and ripped its own skin off.
Another time a 4ft black snake was sunning on my front porch... Then there was a spider so large in my house I could see his eyeballs.... I'll take iguanas any day...

My wife might have a problem with the giant spiders...especially if I have to kill them with a snow shovel.

I was a Realtor for 10 years. When the market is this hot β€” you have to do escalation clauses.

Most houses are selling for over full price. People will come in with an offer at 20k over asking. With an escalation clause, you can offer (as an example) 2k over whatever the highest bid is. That ensures you have first shot at it.

Paying cash also dramatically increases your chances.

Good advice.
We are definitely doing cash too.

Florida is crazy. I would never live there again...except during the wintertime.
Research your county prop tax history well and get familiar with docs on sinkhole locations and more importantly floodmaps. Huge factor. (40K homeowner premium?get ins quote) Def get familiar with the chineese drywall situation.
The rainfall down there does some major damage, so mold and structural damage is a massive problem.
Unoccupied houses mold fast w/o ac systems running. Iv'e dealt with a few of those properties there.
FL real estate is mine field.
My advise is to use a buyers agent, an independent inspector(you hire, not your buyer agent) and a closing agency with a title insurance policy for all remote transactions.
Good suff is going in pocket listings often..too many buyers.
Zillow is almost obsolete, it's so slow.

Learned about the 'Chinese drywall' when we bought my mom's home down in Vero.
