We're pretty high up where we are. The areas of our yard that was graded below natural grade has flooded twice in the 14 years we've been here. I don't have any fruit trees but I don't see any reason why they wouldn't grow.

Actually I own a lot on n.e 12 and Desoto for over 25 year's. This is my future home site when I retire it's been all my life
so I am looking for a private builder that can start building an in expensive home. I currently live in New Jersey and I go
and check on my lot about twice a year and every year it's growing so I have another 8 year's to retire so I hope by then
their will be a closer ER, EMT etc. near my lot. If I find a builder that will work with me to build an in expensive home I
will start building now. Golden Gate has always been on my mind for building my retirement home.

Never assume the taxes you'll be paying will be the same as the current owner, except for the year you purchase the home. Property taxes are paid in arrears in Florida, so the buyer usually gets the benefit of paying the lower tax bill if the previous owner was a permanent resident and the property is his primary home (not a rental property or 2nd home) Sometimes, in addition to the Homestead Exemption, an owner might have an exemption for a permanent disability or for being 65+.

The best way to get this information is to go to the county appraiser site. Also, if the current owner has been in the home for several years and has Homestead, then there is a cap on the amount the appraisal can increase, so the tax bill might increase when it's sold.
