Understanding Florida Real Estate Transactions

With the ups and downs of the real estate market, buying a home isn't always as simple as it sounds. There is a lot to consider before signing a contract that can make a big difference in your future as a homeowner.

The following issues are all key aspects of real estate transactions:

  • Zoning
  • Wetlands
  • Transfer of ownership
  • Title insurance
  • Subdivision
  • Infrastructure requirements

A proper real estate contract will address all of these issues and more, but for those that don't, it is important to discuss your concerns before signing any papers. After you put your signature down, it can be difficult to go back and ask for changes to the contract.
