    The other reason condo fees are high is that they include insurance that may be impossible to attain otherwise. Be sure and check on insurance, or write that as a contingency out in the contract where can get deposit back if can't insure. It is tight on coastal counties.

    First of all: DON'T DO IT! Florida SUCKS!

    That said.... crazy gringos... first they build on a hurricane prone area, then they choose non-hurricane prone materials, then they try to hurricane-proof the properties.

    You say "moving back to Florida", so that means you know what the state offers. If you can afford it and enjoy the climate/activities/culture of the state, go for it!

    I've been living the Florida beachside condo life for the past 13 months and, while it has been fun waking up to the ocean every day and enjoying amazing food and parks, I would never do it again. I'm used to a detached house with a garage that is all mine and land that I can plant whatever I want. Condos have specific rules, which creates almost a sterile bland feeling IMHO. It's been painful not to be able to dig up the ground, run a powersaw at night or do some auto maintenance. I've also missed the four seasons and have had more than my fill of mosquitos and no-see-ums. And while the salt air does wonders for the skin, it is horrible for buildings, cars and bikes.
