What to Know Before Buying a Home in Florida

If you live up North and you’re thinking about moving to Florida, there are three important considerations to make before you start shopping for homes.


Before you do anything, though, you need to get in touch with a Realtor so they can help guide you through the home buying process. Hiring one won’t cost you a thing—the seller pays the buyer’s agent’s commission fees.


That being said, the three things you need to take into consideration are the as-is contract and its specifications, the role of attorneys when closing your loan, and flood insurance. For your convenience, I’ve provided timestamps of the video above where I discuss each point in further detail and how it applies to you:

  • 0:50—The AS IS contract and its specifications 
  • 3:19—The role of attorneys when closing your loan  
  • 5:04—Flood insurance

If you have any questions about these important factors or any other real estate needs I can assist you with, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to speak with you.
