Thank you Compelled, Wild Style, Momma_bear, and Ivcceo for this valuable information. I'm hoping to visit the area mid-May or at least around Memorial Day.

Sometimes I read Sunrise referred to as "Slumrise" in this forum. Can you guys tell me how to avoid the "slum" part if any? Also, why "Slumrise"?

Just curious...

Thanks again.

People on the forum think anywhere that isn't in (insert their promised land here, although usually North Carolina or Tennessee) is a slum, since the nature of a relocation forum is that it's going to have a lot of people who don't like where they live. However avoiding the "slum" in Slumrise is easy. Try not to go east of University off of Sunset Strip (at night, you won't get shot or anything but it's just not a great area) and don't rent east of Nob Hill Rd (bad element moving/settled in). Sunrise is the first city that is starting to break the University Dr barrier so I think that's why it's getting it's name. The locals actually semi-endearingly call it "Scumrise" and have for many years. It still looks nice between University Dr and Nob Hill but there is a lot of section 8 riff raff going into that area (no offense, I know a select few ruin it for the people that really need assistance). There has actually been a major spike in crime in Sunrise as well as Plantation and Davie (after hitting a low) this year.

Housing boom to bust takes 6 yrs generally. We MIGHT bottom out in 2011 MAYBE

You know I bet towards optimistic wild style . Seeing how the situation is only getting worse so fast, I don't see how the bottom won't correct itself before 2010.

This has happened about five times (never on a national level, but regional) it always takes 6 to 7 yrs. It is getting worse because of factors besides just the housing market. But this is a topic best left for the business section of the forum.
