We are a couple 50 years old and want to buy a nice townhouse in nice gated community to retired and spend 6 month on winter in Florida.
we will like a close location near a lake or the beach.

We are looking for a nice 2 bedroom house at around 160,000.
1. It is a good idea to buy a new house or a foreclosure house ?

I saw in TV that new houses have problems with Chinese drywall. any ideas which areas may have these townhouses affected by Chinese drywall?

2. Also I heard that being a snowboard we are paying more in taxes. Any one can help us giving us some ideas of nice places. Also I read that taxes are calculated based on the area. Any idea on areas with lower tax

3. Also I noticed that there is a HOA tax. It is a membership fee and what is cover on this tax( cutting the grass, access to the swimming pool and other facilities on the gated community.)
Could someone explain to us!!

4. I will like to get something closer to Hollywood. I saw couples of townhouses on Pembroke Pines any advice on those area or Miramar

Much appreciated all your advises advices.
