Thank you for your interest in TampaBay
You’re going to like TampaBay. If you’re looking for a Holiday Home or American Investment Property, TampaBay is one of the best locations in the United States and certainly the best in Florida. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa is the capital of Florida’s West coast and has all the elements that make up a good investment and a great holiday destination. We’ll explain all the things that make TampaBay great and, at the same time, help you deal with the challenges of buying property in America.
While we have often laughed about being separated by a common language, this separation is a bit more acute when it comes to purchasing real estate. American Realtors are as different as chalk from cheese to UK Estate Agents. Our procedures are different. The language of American real estate is different. Every Florida Realtor is licensed by the State and must pass regular competency tests to ensure the license remains in effect. Unscrupulous Realtors can be fined, lose their license or even go to prison.
As Realtors (who still hold their UK passports) we will work to shield you from surprise or misunderstanding. The rule of law in Florida Real Estate offers you a remarkable degree of investment protection and financial safety. There’s no gazumping when buying or selling property in Florida (or anywhere in America).
We have attempted to capture these differences to ensure you are successful in your search for a home in TampaBay. As your Realtor, our goal is to help you achieve the best possible value for your money. Furthermore, we will guide you through our sales and purchase process and work very hard to help you achieve your goals.
The information contained within is just an initial step in our promise to keep you informed and prepared as we help you with your American property goals.We look forward to working with you.
