We got a distress call last night from a friend concerning real estate in Florida. We know many people who live there...are snowbirds...and know that there are many "active"AR members in Florida and thought this may be a good forum to get an answer.
Our friend has a relative who was/is buyinga condo to spend some time closer to her son who will be going to school in the Florida sunshine. This would be a second hme...the relative also travels a great deal for her job (Over 50$ of the time) and is not really at her prmary address regularly during the work week.
The offer was accepted and financing steps taking place...and now seemingly from nowhere...the lender has made it a requirement that the borrower become a Florida resident within 60 days of closing the transaction. Given the dirth of people who have "snowbird nests" there and the competitive nature of lending this was a surprise "Demandment" to everyone.
If there is anyone n this forum who can offer a suggestion of a Florida licensed lender who can run faster, jump higher, is interested in pursuing this transaction with the greatest of speed and does not likely have a residency requirement...Please send that information to: Sally@HansonRealEstate.Net. Thank you for your as always, helpful and prompt assistance.
