So...don't let anyone tell you there isn't affordable waterfront property here. When I started looking for property three years ago, most real estate agents (present company excepted) I tried to give my money to were too fat/lazy to go out and find the deals...gotta find 'em yourself. I found all my properties (4 so far) by doing HEAVY research on the Internet, in the newspaper and hitting the bricks.

You Are correct, I'm sure Georges will agree there are alot of bad agents and most of the more experienced agents like to work with seller or high-end buyers, I have buyers agents that work with me and the only buyers I'll work with are personal referals, high-end and of course any OSOers.
Our job as Realtors would be alot easier if it wasn't for some of non-professionals that the state of Florida gave a license to. But as a wise man said half the people you run into are below average.

I'm buying a waterfront on a canal in Deland that has access to the St John's River and is 19 miles from Daytona at a good price. Volusia county is the fastest growing county in Florida. Quick access to Orlando, and about an hour to Jacksonville, the two places I do most of my work.

One thing you need to take into consideration is that the "baby boomer" generation (of which I am proud member) is starting to retire, and will be doing so for the next 5 yrs min. And most of them up north have decided that theve had enough of snow.
Fla, AZ, and Vegas real estate is starting to go nuts. Vegas has been booming for the past 12 yrs. The company I work for alone built and delivered 2.2 million dollars worth of roof trusses last WEEK!!!!. and has been doing that for months, at an average of $2500 per house. You do the math. Even if you dont plan on moving here, Fl is going to be great for investment. If you do plan on moving here, I wouldnt be fartin around thinking about it, cause your gonna be dissapointed.
Just an old farts .02

Exactly,

and to top that off, there is almost no more room to build in Southeast FL, so if you wanna live here, your gonna pay. That little shack I live in is my best investment ever.

Agreed but .. Most other parts of the country have boomed also .. I live a little north of Boston and believe me this area has boomed and will continue to do so ..As a result the house im sitting on while deciding when and where to move to fla should give me good return

Pantera 1,

Went by your boat today and noticed you had the engines removed. Are you going big blocks?

Hey Pantera1,
I can hook you up with a killer deal on your mortgage in FL. Let me know when you get something squared away and I'll take care of you.

...
