Should I buy a wood frame or concrete block home, and what about insurance?

Most of Florida’s residential exteriors are built using one of two structural methods: engineered frame wood construction or concrete block. Listing details should state whether the home is wood frame or concrete block. Both are acceptable construction in South Florida and offer different advantages. For instance, there is the potential for slightly higher maintenance with wood frame construction, however wood is much more energy efficient. Concrete block is better sound-proofed and more durable. Insurance cost is similar in both methods. Most properties in Florida, unless covered by a “blanket” condominium or townhouse policy, should be insured separately for windstorm damage.

Is the property homesteaded and will that affect my taxes?

Every person who owns and resides on real property in Florida on January 1 and makes the property their permanent residence is eligible to receive a homestead exemption up to $50,000. The first $25,000 applies to all property taxes, including school district taxes. The additional exemption up to $25,000 applies to the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000 and only to non-school taxes. Ask the listing agent if the property is homesteaded, and for any information pertaining to taxes, as Florida real estate taxes are calculated differently than most areas of the country.

What are typical buyer’s closing costs?

Closing costs, including documentary stamp taxes on the deed, are a point of negotiation between the buyer and seller. The seller will be expected to pay the brokerage sales commission through his or her listing contract with a real estate office as well as title insurance and his attorney. The buyer will be expected to pay his or her own loan escrow items and pre-paid interest on a loan, as well as lender’s and attorney’s fees. In general, the buyer’s closing costs are typically 1.5% of the purchase price.
