You must really be bored Steve - if you'd like, you're welcome to do my taxes

Interesting evaluation though!

But don't forget - the new homes all carry higher bonds than the old ones while the "old" ones may even have the bonds paid off. Still - interesting information. Personally I sat out on the lanai listening to the rain and read a book!

Patty, dear:

I haven't even done my own taxes since before I came to TV! Surely, I'm not about to do yours!

I read it from beginning to end, so I must've found it interesting. Course, it's raining here in CT, too...lol

I'm looking for a house right now and found this very valuable (as an outsider), so you have my permission to ignore those making fun!!!

Thank You, RiteLucky!

And, welcome to TOTV. Every now and again it's fun to inject a little levity, 'cause when a thread gets "testy," then it's time to leave!

I really don't think anyone was "making fun" - just "having fun"!!

I found it interesting that the pre-owned CYVs are averaging more than the new.

Being out of state I didn't see the local newspaper, and I don't think I'm undertstanding their facts. It seems like they are only using a partial list which will skew the numbers. For example I don't understand the low number of new units offered. I go to the new homes section everyday and if you click on the "home series", you'll see how many new homes are available per series, and it far exceeds the 63 shown.

Currently new homes offered are; designer series 167, cottages 53, Keys CYV 32, Savannah CYV 18, patio villas 49 and premier homes 1. As far as used or resale homes, the TV website lists 233 designer homes alone besides all the other types which doesn't even include the MLS homes on the market.

Even if the totals are off, I suspect the general trend is the same - the new homes in general, seem to be higher priced than the pre-owneds. And the pre-owned's usually have lower or no bond, plus additional upgrades and mature landscaping.

HA!! And I take it as humor as well.

I actually DID snack on some popcorn last night while Sandy and I were watching the basketball games!
