Here is a one question quiz on getting ready to buy that new home in Florida....
The first step in buying a house is to:
(1) Find your real estate agent.
(2) Decide where you want to purchase a home.
(3) Get a mortgage lined up.
(4) Any of the above as all must be done eventually.
The correct answer is (3) but should you choose (1) your real estate agent will likely point you toward (3).
