If you're thinking of joining the estimated 400,000 Brits who currently live in Florida, then make sure to check out A Place in the Sun's dedicated guide to buying in the Sunshine state, which is now available to download.
The guide, which is free to download and print, focuses on key areas of the Floridian buying process, with information on the most popular areas for investment including Orlando, Naples, Sarasota, Jacksonville and Amelia Island, a breakdown of typical buying costs, taxes and charges you can expect to pay on your new Floridian property and information on how to obtain visas.
There is also information on how to understand the process of buying short sale and bank repossessed properties, which currently offer amongst the best deals in Florida.
Plus the guide contains vital information on how to understand the healthcare system in Florida, and for those looking to emigrate with young children, information on how the schooling system works in the USA. And there is a glossary at the back with contact information for some useful organisations including the Miami Association of Realtors and property portal Zillow.
