  • That price is outstanding for a house, I'd be concerned it's not in good shape at that price. I like living in FL, but it is hotter than hell during the summer. We've been under a heat advisory where I am for the last 3 days, it's been feeling in the triple digits...even the dog wants to get wet right now. lol It's not too bad, though, and you have the beach and theme parks and lots of nature parks and stuff, so there's always something to do.

  • It is hot here in AR too....upper 90s all week not including heat index. As far as the houses shape, we have seen SEVERAL pictures, and all houses rented to military have to be approved. (im pretty sure) The house was built in 2004, so it cant be that bad.......we have seen SEVERAL REALLLLY nice houses in a development. Called Holley By the Sea..they are around 1100-1200....with 3 pools, tennis courts, ect....
