Is it a good idea to rent my home in Village Walk at Lake Nona, Florida rather than to sell it?

Answer
Yes, rental is a very good option here.  Capital appreciation prospects for Village Walk continue to be at a very high level, so if you do not need the money, then hold it.  If you bought it new in 2011, then it's going to depend on whether or not it's on the water or faces a wall.  Assuming it's on water, then it's easily worth $50,000 more than you paid for it and the builder is selling new ones for $70,000 to $80,000 more than you paid.Hold out until the new VA Hospital is fully open and you'll do very well.

Can anyone reveal true living expenses in small town on west coast of Florida?

Answer
Welcome to Florida.  I live in Harmony, which is about half way between Orlando and Melbourne.  We are 7 miles east of St. Cloud.  I too am a transplanted northerner, in my case Chicago.  One big thing to keep in mind it that we have no state income tax in Florida, that's a very big item for people coming here from high tax states in the northeast.Be happy to help you out in the St. Cloud area.  Just click on my picture and contact me.

Why is the estimated price I got is low?

Answer
Really need an address and some details to comment.  Brand new can be a problem for the numbers these automatic value calculations spit out.

No problem finding furnished short term rentals in the Orlando and Kissimmee area.  Try VRBO or Homeaway.  They are good places to start.

cash out re-fi for canadians who own property in central florida? no social security but an ITIN

Answer
Well I see this is an old one, but it someone comes across it with similar goals, then you could always check out 1031 exchanges.  It's a way to move capital from one property to others without any current tax liabilities.  I've done one myself 10 years ago.

Why won't this realtor answer me? Is this how Zillow works?

Answer
Sorry, but there is no record of 2534 Bowmer on our MLS.  Perhaps you are looking at a data post.  Most of what is on Zillow is not for sale or for rent, it's just data.

Answer
Honestly the number one problem you will face is the two cats.  Most everyone accepts dogs, but few landlords will take cats.
