Tailored home purchasing services for South Florida

There’s more than one way to buy a home in Florida. Various types of real estate purchases have their own characteristics and considerations. Here are some common types:

  • Traditional Sale. This is the standard type of home purchase where the seller owns the property outright and sells it to a buyer with accompanying warranties. The transaction typically involves negotiation of the purchase price, home inspection, financing, and closing.
  • Short Sale. In a short sale, the seller owes more on the mortgage than the home is worth, and they seek approval from their lender to sell the property for less than the outstanding mortgage balance. Short sales can be complex and may require approval from multiple parties, including the lender.
  • Foreclosure Sale. Foreclosure sales occur when a homeowner fails to make mortgage payments, and the lender seizes and sells the property to recoup the outstanding debt. These properties are typically sold at auction, and buyers should be aware of potential risks and complications associated with purchasing a foreclosed property.
  • Lease-to-Own Agreement. In this arrangement, the buyer leases the property from the seller for a specified period with the option to purchase the property at the end of the lease term. This arrangement allows buyers to rent the property while building equity and potentially securing financing for the purchase.
  • For Sale by Owner. In an FSBO transaction, the seller handles the sale of the property without the assistance of a real estate agent. The buyer and seller negotiate directly and may use standard purchase agreements or customized contracts.
  • Quitclaim. A quitclaim deed is another type of real estate transaction, but it's not exactly a purchase agreement in the traditional sense. A quitclaim deed is a legal document used to transfer ownership or interest in a property from one party (the grantor) to another party (the grantee). However, unlike traditional warranty deeds, quitclaims do not offer any guarantees about the property's title.

These are just a few examples of the types of home purchases that occur in Florida. Each type of purchase may involve unique legal, financial, and practical considerations, so buyers should carefully research and understand their options before making a commitment. Consulting Fort Lauderdale real estate attorney Geoff Levy can provide you with valuable guidance that supports your best interests throughout the purchasing process.
