And now I know why I wouldn't have anticipated anything but such a response.

Once more... If you do not like the way it works in FL, go elsewhere where the way it works is more suitable to you and put it behind you. It is counter productive to be in a place you despise.[quote]


You do realize that many people who despise FL are stuck here. Did you get the memo about the real estate market? It could take several years to bail out of the swamp.

"Despise" is a strong word, especially when referring to a state that is quite large and diverse in geography, population and level of urbanization between areas. As if Tallahassee residents have the same gripes as those in Fort Lauderdale.

I wonder, would it be a valid opinion if someone droned on about how much they despise the United States? They hated how crowded it was, how there were too many minorities and illegal immigrants. The economy sucked. The most violent country in the civilized world. There was no culture, and people had to drive everywhere.

Would someone be considered a jingoistic cheerleading fool to point out to that person that the United States is actually geographically and culturally diverse, and that one person's experience in their corner of the country may not be typical. Or that their personal experiences and "situational defects" may not be shared by others somewhere else?

You mean those folks who bought in the boom and refuse to take the loss but would rather stew in their situation? I wonder why anyone would invest in a house in a place they despise in the first place. Poor planning, thats all.

Right on!!!
having been here on the SW Florida coast for the past 20 years, stuck, I don't know where else I could be stuck next to the #1 beach in the United States (Siesta Key Beach) and be as broken happy stuck, lost everything but found some of the best people in the world. No place is perfect, find what works.

Being unable to sell your property does not mean you're stuck in Florida.

I would say that what Florida lacks most is good jobs with good wages. I cant imagine a working person choosing Florida.

Hopefully this will be the last word on this useless thread.

Define "working person."

Depending on the industry and skillset, Florida can be a very good place to make money. Law and legal services, healthcare, financial services, entrepreneurs...

Those that want to make $20/hour as a receptionist? Not so much.
