Companies involved in the Orlando home-buying process and after you own…

Viva Orlando is the premier real estate company in Central Florida for all of your real estate needs. But as you would imagine, we can’t service all of the functions that are required in a real estate transition, let alone after you have purchased your dream vacation home. For this reason, we want to introduce you to other companies that will serve a specific function in the overall success of the purchase and management of your new home. Please note that we have strong relationships in all of the following areas and will be by your side with recommendations every step of the way.

Home Inspectors – for a thorough examination of the condition of the home

Contractors/Handyman – for any upgrades or repairs needed in the home

Title Company – to handle the closing, make sure that the title to the property is sound and conveyable and issues title insurance on the property

Insurance company – to help you with the right policy to protect/safeguard this important asset and possessions. Typical homeowners insurance policies will cover damage caused by such perils as fire, windstorms, hail, lightning, theft or vandalism

Furnishing Company/Interior Designer – in order to furnish and decorate your new vacation home. The right furnishing package could make all the difference in successfully renting your home when you are not enjoying it with your family

Property Management Company – your partners who manage every aspect of keeping your vacation rental booked and ready for guests and owners to enjoy

Homeowners Association – homeowners associations (HOA) are entities created to maintain common areas; they have the authority to enforce deed restrictions. Most condominium and townhome developments and many newer single-family subdivisions have HOAs, which are typically created when the development is built. Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&R) are issued to each homeowner, and HOAs are established to ensure that they are adhered to in order to maintain the quality and value of the properties involved

Tax/Accountant – to prepare and examine financial records of your home. They make sure that records are accurate and that taxes are paid properly, on time and in compliance with State and Federal laws

Mortgage Company – (if using financing for the purchase) is often just the originator of a mortgage loan that counsels you on how to choose the best mortgage, fill out loan applications and submit your file for approval.
