Thinking About Buying Real Estate in Florida?

We had the pleasure of attending Baker Real Estate's free seminar on buying Florida real estate last night.

Speakers included Barbara Lawlor (President of Baker Real Estate), Jayson Schwarz (lawyer and Senior Partner at Danson Schwarz Recht LLP), Paul Howlett (tax consultant and Partner at EvansMartin LLP) and Jack Halkowich (Executive VP of Baker Real Estate's new U.S. headquarters in Boca Raton).

Topics covered ranged from current market conditions to legal, tax planning and estate considerations.

While everyone's circumstances are different, the point that was clearly driven home is the importance of consulting with trusted professionals before diving into this type of real estate investment.  If you're considering the purchase of real estate in Florida (or anywhere else for that matter), be sure to consult with your trusted real estate professional, lawyer and/or accountant before taking the plunge!
