Does the home have the proper tie downs and such to secure it to the ground. Hurricanes are a factor in Florida and something you need to be aware of as you proceed with your search for the perfect home that fits your needs.
Option to buy is a great way to buy a home and yes it is doable although it is a more intense process as you want to get a lawyer to write up the option to buy paperwork so that you can get the best deal for your money.
