Many states consider escalation clauses to be practicing law; Realtors are not licensed to practice law. You can hire an attorney if you like. Have your agent insert the language in the contract. Just be aware that the listing agent might have to advise her seller/clients to hire an attorney to interpret the clause; they may opt to dismiss your offer because it's too much trouble/extra expense.

Go to the Osceola County School Board website for the current school boundary maps. No, you do not have to live in Celebration to go to Celebration K-8.

Orlando is inland. It's not near the ocean or the gulf. You'll need to drive an hour to get to the beach.

I have yet to see a house that was cheap enough or special enough to justify the risk and aggravation involved with buying a foreclosure or short sale. There are plenty of dumpy homes that you can buy directly from the seller, not the bank. I suggest you buy one of those instead.

It depends. How is the market in Mesa? In my area, most homes are selling above list price, not below. How much is your down payment? Do you have cash in the bank to cover unexpected expenses? I advise my buyers against cutting it too close.
