a villa in Orlando
the UK buying a home in Orlando is relatively simple. There are
more than 12,000 vacation homes on developments & gated communities
close to Disney and most are owned by UK residents. Florida attracts
more than 44 million tourists each year and is the most visited
city in the world.
Under Florida law, all that is required for a legally binding
sales contract is a signed written agreement plus goodfaith deposit.
It is therefore possible to 'Exchange Contracts 'straight away
with a Seller and virtually eliminate any possibility of your
chosen property being sold elsewhere. Most written Sales contracts
are conditional and you will have ample time to arrange financing,
survey the property and approve legal work. If your loan is denied
or the house does not pass inspection, you may withdraw without
penalty. There can be any number of conditions in the contract
but essentially all elements of the sale should be in writing
to avoid dispute.
Brokers and Salespersons
In the United
States the vast majority of sellers and buyers use Realtors or
Brokers to assist them when selling or buying a home. Why?...because
(unlike the U.K.) in the United States all real estate transactions,
except private sales, are highly regulated. Furthermore, all persons
brokering real estate, except private sellers or builders selling
their own homes, must be licensed. As in the UK, the Seller typically
pays sales commissions. It will cost you no more to have a Realtor
guide you through the sale process. Finally, All Realtors 'share'
their homes via the Multiple Listing Service. You need
only to appoint one in order to have access to the vast majority
of homes on the market
many homes to choose from, both new and pre-owned, with most UK
buyers choosing to buy new because of the peace of mind offered
by Guarantees (which come as standard). Lower repair costs and
freedom to choose colour schemes and furnishings are seen as other
reasons to buy new. New homes generally come with a full 12 months
warranty on ALL items supplied, including swimming pool, air conditioning/heating
and appliances such as washer, dryer, fridge/freezer, dishwasher
and microwave. For the first two years all plumbing and electrical
work is warranted and the building carries a 10 year structural
warranty. These Guarantees and Warranties may not be in place
when you buy a resale home and could prove to be costly if you
have future problems. By contrast, the advantage of buying a resale
home is that you may save money on the purchase. Some of the most
popular areas for short-term rentals are the well-established
subdivisions where no further homes are being built. However,you
will have to weigh up the options and decide which is right for
prices, offers and plans are subject to change without notice!
