- Certified Residential Appraiser
I just got back from a glorious, action packed Disneyworld trip in Florida. I have been there before, but this time my appraiser radar went off. I had noticed before that the stucco home was a big player in this area, but this time I playfully searched for some other type of home while trying not to let my family know I was ignoring them as usual. I gave up. Obviously, I did not tour the entire state, but from my research the entire state of Florida is 99% stucco. I would bet some of you up north never see stucco. I know some parts of the country rarely see full brick exteriors. In Texas, I would venture to say that over 75% (majority) of homes are brick exterior. So here is my poll, please feel free to add your comments or remind me what a total waste of time this is. The point I am trying to make is that every area of the country is different, but so often we don't venture outside our secure little world and realize that it is different elsewhere. That, and what the heck is a cape COD, anyway?
