Welcome to my web site.  I am a Swansea native, now living in Central Florida.  My name is Dave Penny and I was born and raised in Mumbles.  I moved to the US about 25 years ago.

I am in the real estate home inspection business.   www.pennypropertyinspectors.com    

With the dollar being so weak against the pound, now is a good time to make the most of your money and consider a Florida property for investment or retirement. 

I have two homes for sale.  Both are located close to major airports and all the Disney attractions.   The properties are both rented at this time.  One is a single family home, built in 1918 and is in the historic district of a town named Eustis.  It is a large renovated Victorian house (4 bed, 2 bath) and is rented for $1,100 per month.  The other is a very large (3 bed, 2 bath) condominium, rented for $1,000 a calendar month in a beautiful town named Mount Dora.  Both properties are managed by a property agent whose fees are 10% of the gross.  The rental contracts will pass on to the buyer.

Mount Dora  http://ci.mount-dora.fl.us/ and Eustis  www.eustis.org in particular are quite amazing place to live.  The two cities are small and they are approximately 6 miles apart. They are close to all major roads and airports.  Direct flights arrive regularly from Cardiff to Sanford; about a 45 minute drive.  Orlando International is about an hour away.  There are dozens of lakes – in fact both cities are in Lake County.  We have sailing regattas on the larger lakes and fishing on all of them.  We are in the country and to me it looks just like the UK with green rolling hills and trees, many golf courses and horse riding.  We have diving in the springs and caves that are numerous around here.  There is so much to do.  Both Mount Dora and Eustis have many street festivals and car clubs.  On the weekend, you can get a great burger at Gator Joe’s.

Both cities are approximately equidistant from the east and west coasts of Florida, and both coasts are about an hours drive away.  The space shuttle can be seen taking off from here.

Let’s talk about weather – well, look it up.  You won’t believe how great it is here in the winter.  I don’t own a coat.

If you require any further info on the homes offered or if you would like me to research other possibilities for you please email me or call me at 001 352 552 2136  or Email at pennyinspections@gmail.com   Even if you are not interested in buying a house here – you should come shop just for the great bargains!  At 2 to 1, how can you lose?
