Things to look out for prior to a purchase

For this reason, we at Dagma LeBlanc have highlighted some of the best hands to play when looking for a home in Florida.

  1. Be explicit about your goals: We often advise our clients to seek homes that align with their “Why” and not with their “What”.  For example, a couple looking for homes in Florida has clearly set their dream home goals based on their needs for proximity to a lake or river. Moreover, this reason could be because they want to enjoy fishing post-retirement and so, their best choice would be to live in neighborhoods such as Lake Nova Estates that are close to water bodies.

  1. Critically consider location: Purchasing a home is most often the most expensive purchase most people ever make in their lives and so, it is important to be highly logical during the purchase. The next best question to answer is the “where”. Where would you rather live close to? Places such as Disney park or major attraction centers? To enjoy the beauty of Orlando. Dagma LeBlanc-Pond often advise clients searching for homes in Florida to consider homes based on their location than on their price.

  1. Identify prime real estate: Given the city’s popularity, information becomes the differentiating factor between successfully securing a property or not. Hence, we advise potential clients to consider engaging for registered and experienced real estate agents or realtors that comfortably sell to foreigners such as Dagma LeBlanc-Pond. She helps clients identify prime properties that are astounding purchases and linking them to adequate support services such as mortgage consulting etc.

  1. Leverage the MLS: The MLS means Multiple Listing Service and it is a list of all the properties in Florida available for sale. All brokers and agents have this document and it is important for buyers to look for the property they desire from this central database document to avoid unnecessary driving, visiting and energy waste.
