Default Where to buy in Florida?

We are looking to purchase a home in Florida...We would love to be in the keys and on the water...

Every year we go to Islamorada with our CC to fish and dive but now since prices are so low we would like to buy in FL and have something that is on the water or pretty close to water access so we can take the Sonic down also...

Even though I would like to be in the keys, we do not "have" to be in the keys...

We are pretty unfamilar with anywhere other then Islamorada, where does every suggest we look? Zip codes please??

What does everyone think about Cape Coral? Bonita Springs? Also it has to be in an area where we can get good rent also

Cape Coral has a great bang for the buck when it comes to water front. If you plan on buying and then renting it out you'll be a little upside down.
Too many foreclosures and desparate owners.

We will be sure to contact you if something catches our eye, we should be the Florida area early June to look at some homes, if we see something we really like though, I can fly down asap to bid

I will get it set up. Feel free to call anytime.

The market is heating up til at least June. We will see if Hurricane season slows it at all. That will be the tell-tale.

I started a thread called Florida and boating property If I remember correctly. Alot of very good information shared already. Unfortunatly my Business has been heavily affected by the current global economy so this had to be put on hold. I still follow it a little and from what I see it appears that the inland properties still havent hit bottom but the water front stuff seems to be stabillized. Im sure Cash Bar can give you a better judgement on this than me.

I have a friend that closed last month on a waterfront Key Largo home for just short of a million LESS than what the house was under contract for 18 months ago. Market turned, owner employment was affected = fire sale before foreclosure. Ironically my buddy was bidding to buy this house 18 months ago when he was outbid, he walked away only to come back later and buy it.

I don't really sell there buy I am sure the Keys have been hit hard. They rose faster than most of Florida and probably crashed just as hard.

Plus, the big money northerners are feelings a liitle too pinched to buy a place they see 1-2x a year.
