What do buyers from out of state need to know about real estate in FL?

Florida is a popular state for people to purchase an investment property or second home. Many people also relocate to Florida from out-of-state and designate it as their primary residence due to no state income tax. It is important to note that each state, even counties within the state of Florida, have different real estate closing transaction processes.

Florida has what is called “promulgated rate,” which means the state sets the rates for title insurance. Some states only permit attorneys to handle real estate transactions, but Florida allows attorneys and independent agents, such as Best Practices Title to handle closings and other business transactions.
