Merritt Island Florida
Florida's beautiful Merritt Island is connected to the mainland of Brevard County by a series of causeways and bridges. Once a true island, Merritt Island is still referred to as one, but is currently a peninsula. Merritt Island is about 45 minutes from busy, attraction-packed Orlando�but you don't have to make the trip to Disney World to be entertained as Merritt Island has a bevy of entertainment of its own. The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge was established to act as a buffer zone for NASA in the quest for space discovery. Half of the Refuge consists of 140,000 acres of estuaries and marshes, and is the habitat of 1,045 species of plants and animals, as well as 310 species of birds.

Are You a First Time Home Buyer?
President Bush signed into law a new home-buyer credit. This new law includes a tax refund for first-time home buyers worth up to 10% of a home's purchase price but no more than $7,500. The refund is more of an interest-free loan from the government, and would have to be paid back over 15 years in equal installments. The new law will also increase the cap on the size of mortgages that are guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie to a maximum of $625,500 from $417,000. These higher loan limits should make it easier for borrowers to get a mortgage, because the mortgages are more likely to be traded if they are considered to be conforming loans.
