Steps for buying real estate in Florida
A person interested in purchasing any type of real estate in the United States should seriously consider hiring the help of a qualified and licensed Florida real estate broker specializing in real estate investment in the United States. This agent or agency will represent the best interests of the buyer.
Most lenders in the United States will extend mortgages to foreign customers interested in buying real estate (provided they are creditworthy).
Obtaining a loan commitment in advance is not necessary, but will put you in a better position to acquire real estate more efficiently in less time.
Once a property has been selected for purchase, a written offer is submitted. When the offer is accepted, it becomes a contract.
A closing date is established. Generally, a closing date is set at approximately 30 to 40 days from the signing of the contract.
This includes the seller's obligation to ensure that the title to the property is "clean" and all repairs have been completed.
It also includes the buyer's obligation to ensure that its financing is in order. Closing costs are approximately 2% to 3% of the purchase price.
During the process from contract to closing, several tasks, documents and commitments will be required from both buyers and sellers.
Buyers, for example, will need to arrange for a property inspection, obtain title insurance and obtain a homeowner's insurance policy.
