Thinking About Moving to Florida?

So, if you're thinking about moving to Florida from another state, HIT THE BRAKES! Before you make your final decision, it's important that you visit the areas you'd like to consider purchasing in. Just like everywhere in the states, there are so called "good" and "bad" areas. Get to know it, because your REALTOR can't legally say what is considered a good and bad area. Once you know which areas you'd like to consider, here is what the process looks like:

  1. Get a REALTOR. REALTORS can offer virtual showings, but I recommend finding someone you can trust. As much as I'd like to say that all REALTORS have the customers best interest in mind (although this typically is not the case), it's important that you find someone trustworthy.

  2. Facetime will be your friend. As part of a virtual tour, request a facetime tour. Facetime will allow you to ask all of the questions you have live while you're looking at a home, and if you want to see anything close-up this platform will be helpful.

  3. Video Tours are almost as important. If you're buying a home virtually, it's important that you have a video to document. Videos may show more clearly than on Facetime, so it can absolutely help you make a final decision.

  4. Inspection period. Be sure that when you're creating your offer, the inspection period makes sense. If you feel that it's important for you to see the property in person before closing (which I highly recommend), it's time to do so during this period of time. Make sure you can make it down to Florida to see your home during the inspection period/inspection.

  5. Closing. When you close on a property, you can request a virtual signing. That being said, it is so rewarding to sign that paperwork at the closing table and finally get your keys!
