If you are not planning to pay cash for your new Fort Lauderdale vacation home, I recommend that you first consult with a mortgage broker. There are specific rules that apply to non-residents. We have a super mortgage broker in our office that can help you. Following is her information:
Sandra Morales, Senior Loan Officer
Sunbelt Lending Service
Direct: (954) 467-8537
Fax: (856) 917-2618
Your next step is to work with a terrific Fort Lauderdale Realtor! The Fort Lauderdale real estate market is unique, so an agent that does not specialize in this area may know where to look to find your perfect vacation home.
The entire process can take as little as 30 days if you are getting a loan and as little as two weeks if you are paying cash.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information!
