Because Southerners are haughty and they think they are sinless, in reality, they just hide there immoral behavior better than anybody else.

They dont realize loving your neighbor means loving everyone. Including Black people.

They are not honest at all, they will smile in your face, and back bite you in a minute.

They are bigger phonies than Californians.

Palm Coast is great and people come from all over, all are welcomed. Enjoy!

If you want country living check out Bunnell!

Um actually I'm not from Florida. They're trying to clean up Bunnell but unfortunately its not working very well. I'm not a "hater." I AM from the midwest and I STILL don't think its a good place to live. Too many obvious drugs and wanna be thugs. Drugs are everywhere but at least in Palm Coast, they're quiet about it! There's an OBVIOUS difference between the two!

The website is to help those from out of town. People where asking about Palm Coast, a real estate guide should be helpful.

Oh and um, its called serving and helping others, instead of back biting and being selfish.

Nice try?

I live in Bunnell my zip is 32110, I have no trouble here.

Unlike you, I am not trying to scam or lie.

Please, if this place does not bow down to you enough, you have freewill to leave, but slandering a whole city because it does meet your standard is pathetic.

Where I live in Bunnell it is dead quiet. And there is tons of land to sell.

This message is for those looking to move here.

Right. I've read your other posts in other forums. You're the one that said we were haters. You're right, Bunnell doesn't fit my standards. Why not? Becaise of the people I meet that come from there. There are bad parts of Palm Coast as well. It is in no way a "Graceland." But when the city gets moving on fixing up the CITY ITSELF (and not the stupid courthouses, etc.)then I won't say anything. But people asked for honest viewpoints from every angle. What are you gonna do? Just paint them a pretty picture that's false and have them disappointed? Palm Coast is BEAUTIFUL and doesn't meet everyone's standards! I'm not saying Bunnell is a BAD place, just probably not the best place you could chose if you have young (and impressionable) children, that's all. And no one here is "back biting and being selfish." I'm too old for that.

If you think you'd like to live in New York, but without the cold weather just come to Palm Coast. I have lived here for 3 1/2 years and it is the absolute worst place I have ever lived in my whole life. It is full of New Yorkers and every time I turn around I hear "Well, In New York we do it this way, Or In New York it's so much better. I have found that these New Yorkers have the nastiest attitudes. They are completely destroying Southern Hospitality. They've all come to the south and brought their nasty New York attitides with them. Palm Coast is nothing more than Lil New York. If there were some way to sell my home and get out of this forsaken town I certainly would. I say there are lots of other nice places to live, don't waste your money coming to the nastiest lil town in the south.

I own property in ormond by the sea. I am thinking of renting out. overall, a decent house. not that big of a house. near ormond mall. never been a landlord before. I do live quite a distance from the area so i will probably use a property manager. I am looking for suggestions and some comments since
Fl is more transient than where i am. I hear some of the rentals going downhill in the area. is it true? I was there not long ago for 2 weeks and didnt look too shaby. of course owner occupied homes can look shaby too but i am curious about the rental scene in the ormond by the sea area. what are some of the property managers like and tenants. My impression is that promblem tenants are not that common there. any thoughts.

The rental "business" (so to speak) isn't bad as long as you're not asking too much. From what I hear from other people, that seems to be the biggest problem. I can't complain about it personally because I'm temporarily renting from family until I move out of state (so obviously my rental rate is lower). Sometimes a bulk rate is the best way to go--meaning ask for one amount that includes rent AND utilities. People are attracted to offers that make them feel like they're getting a good deal for their money. And, without the hassle of having to worry about the utility bills, it's a much "sweeter" offer. But I guess it all depends on WHY you're renting the property out to begin with. Are you trying for profit?

thank you for commenting. If I rent it out I will cut off utilities in my name (which are on an inactive status until i go back saving me some money). Lease would state tenant must put utilities in their name and pay it. I was told by a knowledgeable property manager around the neighborhood I would probably get $ 650 a month and they take their fee out and send me $585 a month. I believe they also take the first months rent and keep it. About half of rental income would go to pay high property taxes then high insurance.

then give something to IRS rental tax. maybe 300 a year and maybe also to maryland tax people. plus pay
to pest control. I also will have to spend at least 400 to paint house. So I was told by someone I might see about 25 percent of rent for personal profit. Not too thrilled but not too bad either. I am concerned septic system drain field would need replaced possibly from some careless people in house
would take profit to 15 percent. Might just leave empty or put a friend in there for 600 a month as tenant- caretaker and keep first month rent in pocket and 15 bucks extra every. Wont have to fool

with strangers I would prefer for possible tenants to meet with me and agent before deciding. I can usually pick up on bs artists. I live quite far so I probably will not be there. Faceless strangers in my house. Another thing that kinda bothers me. How would you feel? Property manager route or try with proven trustworthy friend in house? Any suggestions from you or anyone truly appreciated. thanks!

PERSONALLY, I don't believe in the whole property manager thing from an agency only because they're going to change you an arm and a leg to do the samw thing you could do yourself for way cheaper: Put up a "for rent" sign in the yard and place an add in the paper.(The paper is the first place a lot of people go to for rentals). Renting to a friend is a good idea, especially if they're trustworthy! That way you know they'll take care of the place. And maybe you can trade things with him. Like you'll take 100 or 200 dollars (or whatever seems fair) off of one months rent if he repaints the house!:) That way he's still paying YOU the same amount and you don't have to fork over 400 dollars to pay some company to paint it for you!

thanks for the advice. I spoke to another agent who said I would probably get 650 a month and end up with about 585 month after manager fee. It would very difficult to do this properly on my own living so far away. How would you feel about faceless strangers living in what you consider a second home
1000 miles away.? THANKS!

Thinking of moving to Palm Coast Don't. It really does suck here. There nothing to do, It full of old people, nothing here for kids to do, expect for getting in trouble with the law. All i have to say is move somewhere like Daytona Beach, St. Augustine, any were but here. I've been here long enough to say palm coast sucks, the tax payer money isn't used like it should be. With gas prices being so high and everything being in Daytona or Orlando, what the point of spend more money there you have to. There crime here but the newspaper do want to say cause they think that they will scare the old people into having a heart attack.

I am a former resident of PC, FL. I don't drive and I am in my 40's. After my husband came back up to Cincinnati, OH (for his work), I had to rely on others for my transportation because they had no public transportation (except for Senior Citizens).
I was told that I could call that transportation co. that they used for Senior Citizens. I was also told that if I called a week in advance, I could get a ride--others said that was a joke!-- more like 10 days to 2 weeks), but what happened if my child or I got sick and had to go to the doctor immediately? Couldn't use the transportation bus that they had in place. So, I got to know some people and I had to depend on them. Another issue, I was afraid my son wouldn't like it (because he said so), but he adjusted well and made a few friends that he still keeps in contact with. Even though, at first, I was a little reluctant--I'd say all in all, it turned out for the best. I am not good with change, and moving from Cincinnati, OH to Palm Coast, FL and then back to Cincinnati, OH--I'd say I fared pretty good.
