Buying a Luxury Home in Central Florida

Whether you’re a first-time luxury homebuyer or a seasoned real estate investor in the luxury market, buying a luxury home is exciting—and maybe a little intimidating! It’s different from buying other homes with, dare I say it, fewer digits in their price tags. There’s a lot more money involved, more risk, and usually a lot more house to examine, inspect, and fall in love with.

But that’s why I’m here. I can help you find the perfect luxury home in just the right location… without all the added stress. Here’s a guide to get you started buying a luxury home in Central Florida.

Find Luxury Homes for Sale in Central Florida

Often, luxury homes go unlisted or are listed on only smaller online searches, which can make finding the perfect home a little more difficult. You’ve got to know where to look, and often, the only place to find homes is through personal connections.

Start your luxury home search here, but be sure to ask me about unlisted properties in my network to get the inside scoop on some of Central Florida’s best homes.

Remember, Exterior Photos Can be Deceptive

Don’t be deterred by the outside shots. Often, large homes don’t photograph well from the outside. If you like the interior and the features, it might be worth exploring the area a little bit or driving by to get a better look at what the home has to offer.


Getting Preapproved is Essential

While all home buyers are encouraged to seek preapproval before starting their home search, it’s especially important for luxury buyers. Because the paperwork process can take longer, and because many sellers will only work with proven, qualified buyers, it’s crucial to make sure you’re preapproved before you start your search.

Carefully Research the Area & Neighborhood

Knowing the future plans and predictions of the area around your home is essential to protecting your luxury investment. Research future plans for development that could impact your views or privacy—or improve your home values by adding sought-after local amenities. Pay close attention to the state of other homes in your neighborhood and ask about market trends in your neighborhood to predict whether your property values are likely to rise.
