I'd like to buy a house in the area around Miami or Fort Lauderdale.
Something inexpensive in a nice and safe environment.
Which cities/neighbourhoods are recommended ? Are there any recommended realtors in the area ? Any tips ?
I found some very cheap houses advertised online, but am not sure how reliable they are. I'm not from the area and would appreciate any tips.

Talking Me Tooooo!!!!

I have been looking into buying a house in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area for the last year or so......and what I have found is there are tooooooo many area's to choose from unless you live there or can find some extended time to spend there looking around......the other considerations are taxes and insurance......for your taxes will start off at around 2% of the purchase price and unless you have the Homestead Exemption may rise by 10% a year......and then of course the home owners insurance which can be a real eye opener......depending upon the age of the home and proximity to water the rates could just make you ....

Be sure and familiarize yourself with Chinese Drywall before you plunk down any $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
