I've recently read that impact fees are going to go up even more -- some say up around $20,000. That's going to keep a lot of people from building or buying since the builders are going to tack that onto the price of the home.

I think Prichard meant modular home (the prefab type) that are more expensive than mobiles, but generally less than a site built home. But you have to own your own lot and property is very expensive here, plus you'd have that impact fee! Manufactured homes (mobiles) are significantly less expensive, but new doublewides are over $50k. Then you have to either buy your own lot or rent forever and it continually goes higher.

North Florida and the panhandle are generally less expensive than Central Florida. And it's even more expensive in most areas of South Florida.

FYI--Last I heard there was ZERO Section 8 money available in central Florida, and none of the agencies were even accepting names for the waiting list any longer.

No one is discouraging you specifically, just being honest. There are so many people in need here already that Section 8 waiting lists have been closed. If you can find a place you can afford, come on down. But don't come expecting to be welcomed with open arms if you aren't able to figure out a way to manage on your income without further public assistance, because it's not going to happen.

I think you might be able to find some income restricted housing. Check the link I posted earlier. Now they may be in some of the "less desirable" areas but I think you could find something.

I wouldn't put my kids in Osceola schools, and I think Palm Bay has the biggest share of nutcases in the State. (Two out of three times when I see a weird headline in the Sentinal, it happened in palm Bay.)

There are much, much better areas in the greater Orlando area to raise kids, not sure why you are thinking about either of those two.
