St. Pete Times this morning has good news, here: http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/article850257.ece
One interesting note in the story is that the picture of the home, in the first article about this owner's jailing, shows the home to be obviously well maintained. I have lots of negative feelings about HOA and condo boards because too many people leave the work to "someone else" and board members can have major headaches from those who do nothing but complain. There would have been a much better way to handle this, including having repairs made and just putting a lien on the property if the issue was serious enough.
I ran across a message board yesterday with question from a fellow who has put down a deposit on a condo in Florida - it was a large condo assn. and HALF of the units were in foreclosure. Ohmygosh!
