My wife and I just came back from a very successful househunting mission in Sarasota. We spent much time on this forum looking at postings over the last 6 months. There are several people on this board who had great posts and we wanted to thank them individually. I know from reading some posts that there is a way to send a private message to someone else on the forum, but I do not know how to do that. Can anyone give me some tips? I am no computer genius.

Thank you

Default Doc -- care to share your experiences?

My wife & I are heading to Sarasota on Tuesday to begin our home search as well. We can basically live anywhere between Tampa and Naples, but are focusing our efforts on the Sarasota / Bradenton area.

Any pointers would be appreciated. I'll start digging into the message board archives as well.

to send a PM you just click on the poster's name link--takes you to private screen where you can send a private message
then when it is sent, there will be notation by the person's name when he or she revisits the forum--they click on it and see what you wrote...

Hi Indy to SWFL,
Check out my post on the thread "Just bought in Sarasota. Helpful Hints." You are doing the right thing by reading and reading and more reading. Then you need to find someone who works for YOU not the seller. Then you need to go down and drive around to get a feel for a place. Then go around with your agent. Our agent gave us about 10 places we might be interested in. we drove around without him to eliminate the places we didn't like. So we didn't waste his time on those places. It truly is a buyer's market. Ignore the asking price.
Fire away if more questions. Keep me posted.
