Where in Florida on the Gulf are you interested in?
I'm experienced in reo, loss mitt and short sales, but need more info from you as to what area of the Gulf as Florida has a long Gulf Coast ;-)
Additionally, it would help to know if a condo is ok, or do you prefer single family residence? What amenities are you looking for? Sq. ft?
Is it important to be close to where you can have access for fishing, the causeway for walking, shopping, swiming, ???
What area's have you checked out that you like? Are you aware of the differences in pricing on the Gulf Coast of Florida starting at the Panhandle and going South?
Many questions, but once answered - then you are on your way! I'm a waterfront expert, my husband works with the Marine Patrol dept of the sheriff's office and is a captain, dive master, etc... so when looking for waterfront or view property it is important to know what the parameters are - then I could send you properties or connect you with an expert waterfront agent in another area if they can serve your interests better.
Looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your dreams.
