Real, I appreciate the response, links, and persuasive pitch, and I agree - We need to look closely at the whole package. I will contact the Escambia tax assessor after the dust settles and run the numbers.

Good to know, thank you.

[font=Arial Black]I was wondering from whence you might be hailing that would make the armpit of America look appealing.

I guess north central Arkansas would meet the criteria.

We've lived or worked in the largest cities in the world (Sao Paulo, Seoul, NYC), and in some of the smallest, including a tiny island in the Pacific. We've lived on the west coast, on the plains, and on the east coast. I was born and raised in New Orleans. I can't really say any of those places were armpits although some places satisfied my wants and needs more so than others.

I am curious. Why do you feel the Pensacola area is the armpit of America, and why would you think north central Arkansas would be a notch worse?

Gulf Breeze, Navarre, and Milton all have some really affordable rents and housing. I have noticed a lot of homes are selling at market price as it appears the foreclosures have worked their way through the system. The Homestead exemption is great if you want to lower your property taxes, but all my family is from Alabama, and honestly being close to Pensacola gives you all kinds of access to the water. The Blackwater and Yellow River are amazing. You can check out Garcon point where you can get a five acre parcel and a home for next to nothing, but we would be remiss to not tell you that some areas need to be investigated as to how they did during Hurricane Ivan......it is no fun here or over in Alabama or MS when you are talking about Hurricanes.

I've studied the surge patterns in detail, and it is amazing how insurance can cost $10k for simple $150k structures on Mobile Bay. There are some great places 20+ feet off the water along Perdido Bay, and a whole lot of them in low surge areas on Pensacola Bay. I actually like the smell of a good tropical storm and while I don't want to see property destroyed or people hurt, I understand the risks of living in the area and can manage to it.

We just lost our favorite forum member to cancer, and it was an inside joke to agitate him with armpit line. He was a lifetime Pensacola resident, and most of us are still hurting from the loss, and will miss him after sharing with him for 12 years. We all are a little lost right now, and are happy if you are a new member, but most people who come here have been here before and we call a new name a sock to hide their real identity. Deep in my heart I wish you were a sock, because Bob was the master of socks, but too many people have confirmed he is gone.

Bob was our hurricane junkie and he would be giving you all kinds of information if he was still with us......but he is not. Z, PK, and Hallmark all have good knowledge of the west side to the Alabama border. I just play poker at the dog track and do not know the area that well.

I have been all over South Korea. Went there in 1978/79, and Back again in 1986/87. You can see a lot from the cockpit of a CH-53.

Yeah, just an opportunity to rib Bob.

But, he's no longer with us.

Visited Seoul in the 90's for a 15 day reunion tour. Loved the shopping in Itaewon and Myeong-dong....shopping for the best deals at 2am-5am was quite an adventure.

My roots go back a pretty good ways in Lillian. Back in the early 60s I worked for Frank Kohler. He farmed about 600 acres. I was just a young guy and he taught me a lot about working on Farm Equipment. Unfortunately he was killed in a tractor accident about 25 years ago. His daughter, Elaine, still lives on the old homestead.

If you will look at a map you will see there is no easy way to get to Highway 90 from Lillian.
There used to be a CC farm road but Hurricane Fredrick took out the bridge and it was never rebuilt. There are plans, not well known, to build a road/development from Lillian to Seminole. If and when they do, it will drastically change the entire area. I used to live in Seminole and there was reports of people being approach to sell their land.

Damn Hallmark......you told me the west side could be tough, but I never knew about that Marshall Law stuff. No wonder Bob was skipping school and going to the beach.

Sounds great, JS, and I was glad to assist a bit. Hope you'll be very happy with whatever decision you make! __LL
