What type of housing could I expect to buy for 150k where you live? I'm mostly interested in St. Aug, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Pensacola areas...generally speaking. Single housing preferably as I have a dog that likes to play outside and needs a fence.

I'm starting to explore a move down that way in the next year or so and am curious about what I can afford. Thanks in advance.

FYI: In Raleigh I have 1400 sq ft., .9 acres fenced

OK, I'll take a crack at this one. I live in North Port in south west Florida. I'll list a few homes currently on the MLS:

3/2/2-1192 under air, built in 2002, $109,900
3/2/2-1383 under air, built in 2005, $140,000
3/2/2- 1699 under air, built in 2004, $141,900
3/2/2- 1539 under air, built in 1998 w/ a pool, $147,000
3/2/2- 1762 under air, built in 2005, $147,800
3/2/2- 1344 under air, built in 2003 w/pool, $148,900

That should give you an idea of what's out there. There are some really good deals right now with all the foreclosures and investors that are just trying to unload property. Right now there are 215 homes that are at least three bedrooms, two baths, have a two car garage, 2000 or newer listed from $100,000-$160,000.

Google North Port Real Estate, Venice Area MLS, and a bunch will come up.
If you DM me, I'll give you the website of SoFLGirl...I know her.

You can find a condo in Jax/St. Aug for that price. About 15 to 20 minutes to the beach.

A newer mobile home in an alright part of Davie (middle class suburban FTL), a fairly attractive 2 bedroom condo in Weston (upscale suburb of FTL), or a crack house in Fort Lauderdale. The market is messed up.

What do you mean, "crack house"? According to the description, it's a "beautiful home".
