If you are anything like me, you love the sunny Florida weather and spending your holidays and vacations here. As a matter of fact I liked it so much I moved here. Maybe you want to do the same and are seriously considering buying a Florida vacation home as a way to achieve your dream of spending more time in the Florida sunshine.
So . . . please do not make the biggest mistake that we see many buyers commit when they decide that they want a Florida Vacation Home: everyday we see buyers getting their facts and making their decision based solely on Internet research.
Here is the scenario. You are busy surfing the Internet for vacation homes for sale in Florida. The cool thing about the Internet is that it makes searching for a Florida Vacation Home so easy. Hit a few websites, get up to speed on the Florida Holiday and Vacation Home market, learn about how to rent your home out, and what to expect on income and expenses, and you are set . . . right?
Well . . . if you believe that, we have a bridge over in London we would like to sell you!
Surfing the Internet and making decisions about the most expensive purchase you will probably make in your lifetime is about like needing brain surgery and using the internet to train yourself as a brain surgeon! It can’t be done. Sure, it’s quick, it’s easy, and if you hit enough websites you get a general idea of how it works, so why won’t that suffice?
Because it only educates you enough to be dangerous.
Like brain surgery, you can probably learn which tools are used to perform brain surgery, and you can learn about all the different ways to perform brain surgery. You can learn about approximate costs of brain surgery, but guess what? You still haven’t performed brain surgery! You haven’t spent thousands of painstaking hours at medical school, and thousand of hours under the tutelage of world renowned brain surgeons. You haven’t had hundreds, or even thousands, of success stories in your career, and some heartbreaking learning experiences along the way.
It’s exactly the same with owning a Florida Vacation home. Can it be done successfully? Of course it can. However, like many other US marketing strategies, the Internet has fallen to twisted truths, and misinformation. You get some basic facts, mixed with sales hype. The problem with that is . . . unless you are doing this business 24/7, you will not know which are facts and which are fabrications or flat out lies.
We do, because we are in the business all day and everyday. We have just about seen it all! We still get surprised, but not very often!
So before you leap . . . give us a call. We’ll help you sort out the real truth about owning a Florida Vacation Home. It’s a dream come true when you have the assistance and experience of someone that has been there and done that hundreds of times!
