Help and Assistance
After your Florida
villa purchase, as well as proving
marketing advice after you have bought and completed the purchase of
your new home (see our
page if you haven't done so already) we can assist you in getting
sorted out with a tax accountant, a home management company and
provide an introduction to our bank so that you can get a US bank account
As you have made a Florida villa purchase,
and assuming of course you are renting it out, each year you will need to do an United
States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax
return so if desired we can introduce you to our tax accountant (he is a
self-employed tax accountant and not a large company so your tax
preparation costs will be much cheaper).
When you make a Florida villa purchase whether you are renting it out or not, you will need a
management company if you do not have someone looking after the home. Your
pool will need regular weekly maintenance as will your garden. Further,
you will want the inside of the home regularly inspected to ensure you do
not get any unwanted house guests, such as termites which blight
Florida and can do untold damage to your home. If you need details of
management companies we can provided these to you so that you can look at
their web sites to see which offers a package most suited to your needs.
To make your Florida villa purchase
and the running of the home easier, you will need to have a US bank account in
the US. After all, you will have a management company to pay, utility
costs to meet, possibly a mortgage, and if you are renting out your home,
you will have rental income in US dollars to bank and sales taxes to pay.
We would make an introduction to our bank and US Bank Manager. This can be
done during your inspection trip or at a later date if more convenient.
Buying Furniture for your
Some builders will have deals with rental
home furniture companies. These packages are extremely convenient as
they will furnish your home in its entirety - from three-piece suites,
cutlery, crockery, towels, beds, bedding, pictures and mirrors on walls
right down to tooth brush holders and toilet brushes! The down side
is that they are not cheap and the inside of your home will look much like
many others and very obviously a vacation home. This is fine if your
catering to the mass market but not so if you want to differentiate your
home. If you have the time, look around furniture stores and do all this
yourself. You will get much better value for money plus your home will
not look the same as all other rental homes!
Florida villa purchase, if you would like to
furbish your home and differentiate it from the 'typical rental
packaged home' then buying your furniture independently is the only
way to do this.
