Everybody is holding their breath in Florida, for the past 3 years they've had a net loss of population as folks got priced out (low job wages, high home prices) and now the general talk is that home prices are some 26% down from two-three years ago, but the question is, will they drop another 10-15% because Florida's "Gold Coast" was so overpriced to begin with?

If they'd just put a dome on that state and refrigerate it, it might actually be a nice place to be.

Wait, does this affect the trip to Nantucket that you are organizing? Or the Bermuda trip?

Good luck with it all.

Nope! We're too foolish to ration.

Seriously, as I mentioned we dropped the house idea, but with prices dropping like this it's starting to make me re-think. Probably won't go anywhere, but it's fun to think about it anyway.

Some have posted $250,000 condos with slip included. If I saw the right unit in the right area at that price, it would be awfully tempting.

DING!


I have a friend who had a house built somewhere near Tampa, his insurance is now more than his mortgage.

What Fl taxes? Sales tax is competitive nationally. Real estate taxes typically competitive nationally (2 to 3 mils before exemptions). No income tax or school tax or personal property inventory tax--which beats most of the nation.

Florida is fairly infamous for having overall LOW taxes and LOW PUBLIC SERVICES as a result of it. (Like, lousy schools and poor public transportation.)
