You are supposed to retire in florida not go to work. But I was in business in New York City for years and i had many customers that tried to cut my bid in half I did not let them. For some hard esses I put 20% extra in so I could give it to them. I always told them you get what you pay for. But I love New York City. Made me well off financially so I can sit in florida and not give a damn what the locals do.<br><br>
After this experience, I wouldn't even retire here. Funny thing is, in NY, I could get top $$ and rarely have to negotiate. Came down here and adjusted my rates proportionately (plus a little dickering margin), and still get hammered. But you're right, unless you're in the real estate biz, you should only come here to retire, not to work. Phooey!<br><br>
Yah, the housing market is nuts here. Not enough single family homes to go around. Prices are still 1/3 what they are in the northeast, but the acceleration has been staggering. Both realtors that I've interviewd so far have suggested a listing price that 140% of what we paid just 5 months ago! That doesn't guarantee that we'll get that price, of course. But we'll probably come close.<br><br>
