Out of town buyers with out of town expectations

Regardless of the issue we use prior experience as a basis for decisions on any similar matter.  Such can be the case with real estate.

An experienced home purchaser will use the previous experiences whether good or bad as a reference point when buying another property.  This is a very prudent approach.

But when one goes into another area, especially another state, to make the purchase some of these out of town processes could be less useful.

Real estate is all local - prices and practices.

If you plan on purchasing a home in Florida remember "the way it is done back home" may not be applicable here.

Likewise, and probably more important, the real estate prices back home may not correlate at all with the prices of homes for sale in Florida.

For both of these reasons when you decide it is time to purchase a home in Florida I strongly suggest you select a local real estate expert early on in the process - before you even get here.
