Welcome to the board. I started this thread a long time ago when I was first learning and exploring the idea about moving to this area. I learned a lot of things along the way. The posters here helped me a ton! I would be happy to tell you more.

There is a tremendous amount to learn here. I wrote kept a summary post (which was deleted). If you're interested I can direct message it to you.

There are a lot of great towns and places to buy a home down here, and the prices are really low. It is impossible with all the constant termoil and stories in the news about more foreclosures hitting the market to determine if the market has reached the bottom or not, but I think it has. It is bouncing on it now, and maybe just maybe beginning to improve. So, if you're serious about buying and holding for a while, I would say . . . think long and hard, . . . take your time (the houses you don't know you want yet - will still be here when you're ready), . . . and ask a lot of questions here, and do a lot of reading.

I would go to the Sarasota board, we have a lot of great posters there, including myself and SoFLGal and others, and will be happy to reply to any questions you have. Our board has a wealth of information for those that are looking to move to SWFL (which is a wonderful place to retire).
We have vacationed on the Treasure Coast and will probably retire there. But I still haven't ruled out SWFL. However, whenever I ask people on the east coast about the west coast their advice is to stay away because the traffic is horrendous and the heat is more oppressive than on the east coast. Is there really that much of a difference between east coast and west coast traffic and heat?

TGA is horrific, a couple months ago there was an home invasion. If you have any doubt then go to the Circle K on 41 right in TGA, you can watch the trash going in and out all day long. Move to a place with deed restrictions of some kind. If you don't then anything goes , and You will regret it.

Where is TGA? I live in the Isle, and it is a fantastic place. There is crime everywhere, but relatively little crime here! The only Circle K on 41 is near Aqui Esta, and you won't see anything like what you described there. You must be talking way outside of town somewhere.

It's so cute! It's like seeing baby pictures of you. . . as a really BIG baby! 110,000 hits? I am certainly impressed. I will have to ready this whole thread one day on one of my many plane rides.
