The good news is we were able to move on. What a crazy housing market! We bought our Florida back in Jan 09 and the house has dropped at least 40k in value in 1 year. Thankfully we are staying put in Orlando so we just need to work hard to pay it off and not worry about the value.

The housing market has been one crazy ride over the last few years. It appears (at least here in Central KY) to be stablizing. My brother moved from Florida about four years ago. He literally put a sign in his yard and had people knocking on his door to buy his house.... it was a bidding war. Within the year, you could barely give away homes where he moved from. I've considered selling my home, but am waiting for values to go up.

Default looking for a place

traysea

my name is cindy and i have a family of 4 children 8 6 4 and 7 months next week. I also just got engaged christmas eve. we currently live in independence ky. The reason we are moving is because the house we are renting is in for closure. Our land lord was not paying his morgage. My fiance josh, works at lighting efx on dixie hwy, making 10 dollars an hour. 40 hours a week. I currently, trying to start my own business. seen your add and didnt know how much you might consider renting your house out, since you are in FL. This way maybe we can help each other out. we can afford 750 to 800 a month for rent. that way we can pay all utilities.
I hope to hear from you. my e-mail is [EMAIL="crossfade823@gamil.com"]crossfade823@gamil.com[/EMAIL]
I would be willing to put 4000 down when taxes come in.
sincerly, cynthia wells

Keep in mind I lived for 20 years in CT then my parents moved me to Dayton OH. I hated it. Then I finished college and loved Cincinnati.. so considering I've been off and on in Cincy since 1990 -- it's been great.

I really like warm weather over snow.

I like Orlando. I know there are problems here but we moved back for a 2nd time.

I will say this.. I work for a huge company and when my hubby and I first started to get the moving bug, we were open minded for anything south.

I researched (on this forum) - Nashville, Charlotte, Jax, Dallas, Houston and Atlanta

I wanted to be within an hour or two to the ocean. I wanted a growing economy. I wanted low cost of living.

Obviously Orlando isn't quite there yet on some of those areas, but there was an opening doing exactly what I wanted to do so I went for it and got the job.

I figured my hubby who has been a freelance designer while being stay at home dad working on his bachelors online kind of guy -- would never find a decent design job in Orlando.

Guess what? He got a great job making 13k more then he was in Cincy (granted that was 2 years ago) and landed the job in 2 weeks! So I am blown away. I guess that tells you perhaps the qualified candidates aren't out there.



Looks like your Nashville bound. I really liked the weekend I spent in Nashville. I just didn't feel like I could call it home. I do really like Atlanta and if I am ever promoted that could be a destination I could live with (even though it's far from the coast).

My other all time favorite place is Charleston SC

Good luck with your move. I decided to spill the beans for those upset with Orlando. I am pleasantly surprised on the growth of the clients I am supporting and encouraged that real estate is finally starting to fall.

It must get back at least to late 2003/early 2004 prices for the normal people to afford to live down here.

Well, you can try Atlanta sometime that's where the big wheels from Dayton, Ohio, went. It's supposedly very "in."

The only thing I half to advise is don't rent a house from Newport! They have seen alot more crime in the downtown over the past few years, If you're looking for a place that has everything you need minus the traffic that is Florence.
