How can I buy a condo for cheap in florida?

Jump to last reply

Sounds crazy but I can't seem to get this article out of my mind.

My neighbor bought one in the same location and enjoyed it so much he couldn't stop talking about it. It was a 2 bedroom condo in a retirement community (for people over 55) for about $ 200,000 about nine years ago. He passed suddenly in 2009.

We do like where we are except for the endless winter. We don't have definite plans except we will be keeping our present apartment and spending the summer here.

How do I go about finding bargains like that?
