Hard wood floors were used extensively by the builder who built Westport and Hawk's but they are not that typical with south fl homes.

No basements as other posters have noted due to high water table.

Taxes are about 1.8% of purchase price, then capped to no more than 3% increase per year if you file for your homestead exemption. Homeowners insurance is expensive due to wind/storm coverage for hurricanes (that's additional on top of normal homeowner's policy). You're probably looking at $3,000-8,000 per year. Utilities are fairly reasonable considering how much you run your a/c.
The OP is looking for a 4/3 with a 3CG and wood floors in the $500K range. Hawks Landing will be out of the question.

I think Jacaranda Lakes, Jacaranda Country Club, Westport and Plantation Acres will be her best bet in Plantation. There are also subdivisions in Davie that would work for the OP but she will not find anything in Hawks Landing in her price range.

I guess if you want to get into Hawks Landing its a good deal. I am not a big fan of Hawks Landing as I feel that the houses are very small for the price. This particular house has a backyard exposed to Broward Blvd which would be a big no no for me but of course it's not as bad as being exposed to I-595.

If someone really wanted Hawks that's a great price.

I agree with Momma_bear, I wouldn't spend that amount money on that house.
