We have our home for sale, and can't wait to get out of here. In all my years I have never witnessed such a good ole boys network like Lake Placid. Those who are in charge will not allow any shopping, nightlife, eateries, or changes, they want it status quo, which means total boredom. The real estate market here is a joke, with realtors selling under value and scaring those who have their homes on the market telling them their homes are pretty much worthless, meanwhile realtors get their large fees, for doing nothing. If a house sells in a week, it's under priced, period. Believe me, I know what I am talking about, because in Texas I was a realtor. We had our home sold here in Lake Placid, and upon appraisal, lost the sale due to an extremely lowball appraisal by an appraiser who did not do their job. It's disgusting that they can get away with this, but then all you have to do is look why, they want it that way. Even in Sebring, which is only 10 miles away, home prices are much higher. Taxes are high with no services either, it's a joke. There is nothing to do in Lake Placid, so if you want total peace and quiet, this is your place. Other than VFW, American Legion and Moose, it's a dud.
