I have wondered the same thing for a while. I don't know the legality of it. Most agents will not even show their buyers these types of listings. So the seller's agent is doing their seller a bug disservice.
For zoning changes it's always better to verify directly with the city. Any reason why you would want to purchase a property on such a busy stretch of road?
I know you have been looking into financing (previous questions asked on here) - this home is in bad enough condition they are only accepting cash offers.
If you're ready to find something I would love to talk with you about a few things to keep an eye out for once your search gets underway.... more
There are no guarantee's in life but our rental market is very hot and if you have a suitable property that is appropriately priced there is no reason you couldn't successfully rent it.
If you would like my assistance with obtaining such a property please feel free to reach out to me.

No, this property sold last Jan 19th. Sometimes it takes a while to get them removed. What exactly are your home requirements?

This is a common misnomer. Non-US citizens pay no more in taxes than any non-resident of Florida. That means someone who has not declared residency in Florida (such as someone from New York) will pay the same taxes as a Canadian or European. Florida residents can apply for something named a homestead exemption which affords them a tax advantage.
Insurance costs will be the same and depend on a number of variables - where is the home located? Is it in a flood zone? If it is close to the coast, wind insurance will be a factor. If the house is older, insurance may be higher.
Closing costs also can vary but will be higher if you are financing versus paying cash. These costs will include any pro-rated real estate taxes, home owners or condo association fees, and other taxes and fees. Your real estate agent or attorney or closing agent will be able to give you an estimate once the property has been identified.
As a non-US citizen, I would recommend you speak to a US tax advisor who specializes in interntaional tax. They will advise you on how to take title to the property as well as any other factors that will help you sell or deed the property in the future.
Should you need any assistance in professionals to contact, I would be happy to assist you. Also, if you are in the Toronto area, we will be giving consultations and presentations the first week of May and would happily send you or someone you know an invitation to join us.

As a non-US resident you will pay your taxes based on the assessed value multiplied by the millage rate. If you were a Florida resident you would get a $50,000 reduction (homestead exemption) from the assessed value and that number would be multilied by the millage rate. Florida gives it's residents a break. In addtion to the homestead expemtion mentioned above, Florida's residents also have a cap on the amount of yearly inrease in taxes due to increasing assessed values. As a non-US resident your assessed value would increase or decrease based on assessed value. In a market where values are increasing substantially you would be at a disadvantatge. In the current decreasing market you will see taxes declinging. I would expect to see another year of decreasing taxes when the bills come out in November. You can search the tax rolls for any particular property at www.LeePA.org. If you woluld like to search for homes you can see thousands at www.skoffman.capecoralhomesnow.com. The topic may seem a bit confusing but I would be happy to answer any questions you may have so feel free to call or email. Have a great day!

There are a few different scenarios that you will need to consider. First of all having a Chapter 13 does not eliminate the possibility of you getting a loan. The things that need to be considered will be the date the Chapter 13 was filed, the pay history to the trustee, the balance remaining, and the estimated completion date.
Next we would need to see if your credit score has repaired to a level that would allow financing.
Your Spouse, if employed, could try to qualify or her own. To do that I could pre qualify an amount of a loan that she could use for a home purchase.
If she can not qualify on her own and your situation is not approvable, we could also look into a co applicant and see if that will help.
The best thing to do is to check with a mortgage broker and get them the details of your entire situation. I can help and charge nothing to do so. If you can do nothing right now, I will start you on a path to credit recovery and we will have a future date in mind when you can apply and get approved.
