Crumblin' down

Well some people say I'm obnoxious and lazy
I'm uneducated--my opinion means nothin'

But I know I'm a real good dancer.
.... the walls come crumbling down...

Looking north from south Cocoa Beach one fine morning last week.

Time again for deals of note. These are all sales that have closed since February 1, 2008 that are relevant for lowering the bar in their respective complexes which suggested the Johnny Cougar tune, Crumblin' Down.

2/2 Canaveral Bay, non-riverfront unit, 1023 sq.ft. sold for $100,000

2/2 Cape Shores, 2nd floor non-riverfront, 1038 sq.ft. closed for $110,000

2/2 Windrush, non-ocean 2nd floor fully furnished, 1240 sq.ft. $137,500

1 BR 2 BA Cape Winds ground floor weekly rental, furnished $167,500

2/2 Seminole Landings direct river, 1080 sq.ft. sold for $170,000

Surprising listings that have not sold include a 2/2, 2nd floor Water's Edge West with a mile wide view across the Banana River in south Cocoa Beach with the ocean across the street. Listed for $240,000 with a big private garage. In the direct ocean building across the street a big, second floor 2/2 has been dropped to a ridiculous $269,000.

Nothing astonishes men so much as common sense and plain dealing.
