Football for Columbia County (Lake City and Fort White, Fl.)

The Columbia High School Tigers are now 1 and 3, but is still in the running for playoffs, because they have not started district games. The Tigers are losing the games by just a few points. They are looking better from the first game of the season. With the new Coach and the young Team, I guess it is going to take a little time.

The Fort White High School Indians are 4 and 0. They beat Middleburg High Broncos last week.

Go Columbia County Football Teams!

Good Time to Buy

Is it a good time to buy Lake City, Fl. and surrounding County Real Estate?
Yes, I say it is and here are my reasons why.
1. There is a lot of Real Estate inventory and serveral of the sellers have had their property on the market for a long time.
2. The Interest Rates are still coming down.
3. The Citizens of Florida voted in Admendment 1, which will give a tax break to people.

How to save more money after buying real estate

One way to save money after you buy real estate (a Home) is to shop around for Homeowners Insurance. I was able to go from over $1000 a year payment to under $550 a year payment. It took me approx. 2 day calling around to different Insurance Companies, but that was o.k.

You will need to compare the same amount of coverage and the same rating of the Insurance Companies. The way that I was able to get this lower rate, was that one company rated my neighborhood different on the fire protection that the Columbia County supplies, then the other one.

Need Real Estate? Check out my web site at www.BruceDicks.com or www.NorthFlHomesandLand.com .

Hope this helps and have a wounderful New Year!
