I have been dreaming like many for years to retire to Florida and become a boating/fishing/beer drinking bum. I have been casually watching the WF real estate market in SW coast for about 5 years now. Prices have skyrocketed and the property taxes are absurd in my opinion unless your from New York or Jersey. I have also noticed the insurance can get real crazy depending on when the home was built.
Came home from work the other night and was watching one the financial channels during dinner and they said Cape Coral has the highest forclosure rate in the country.
It all sounds bad but I am still not ready to give up my retirement dreams.
