Dale, Florida is a large state with areas with different characteristics, and price points. Have you visited our state? What do you enjoy? Are you golfers, love the beach? Do you want an area that rarely sees freezing temperatures or would you occasionally like a light snowfall? Do you want to live on the water, lake canal, river, gulf, ocean, the choice is yours.

Hello Malisa,

Bob is correct, you can put the loan just in your name and still have your husband on title and deed as long as you meet minimum guideline requirements. Take a look at to learn more about the process and good luck!

Kind regards,
