Start a Florida Luxury Home Search Today

by Molly Eovino 01/05/2020

Ready to pursue a luxury home in Fort Lauderdale, Tampa Bay or elsewhere in Florida? Launch a Sunshine State luxury house search today, and you may be able to discover your ideal residence in the foreseeable future.

Ultimately, conducting a successful Florida luxury house search can be simple. Let's take a look at three tips to help you start a Sunshine State luxury home search today.

1. Analyze the Housing Market

The housing market varies in cities and towns across Florida. Thus, a luxury home in St. Augustine may prove to be more expensive than a comparable luxury residence in Lake Worth. On the other hand, a luxury house in Jacksonville could prove to be more affordable than a similar luxury residence in South Beach.

Take a look at the Sunshine State housing market. Then, you can evaluate various real estate market data to determine whether you're about to enter a buyer's or seller's market.

If the current Florida housing market favors buyers, you may be able to discover a terrific luxury home in no time at all. Conversely, if the Sunshine State housing market favors sellers, you will need to be diligent and persistent to find a great luxury residence at a budget-friendly price.

2. Establish Homebuying Criteria

If you know where you want to reside in Florida and what you want to find in your ideal luxury house, you may be better equipped than other buyers to streamline the property buying journey.

For instance, a buyer who wants to purchase a luxury home that offers convenient access to Disney World may want to focus on residences in Orlando. Comparatively, a buyer who wants to own a Miami luxury home that features an in-ground swimming pool can tailor his or her house search accordingly.

3. Reach Out to a Real Estate Agent

If you are unsure about how to acquire a superior luxury house in Florida, there is no need to stress. In fact, you can hire a real estate agent who will guide you along the Sunshine State luxury homebuying journey.

A real estate agent understands the challenges that buyers sometimes encounter when they launch a Florida luxury home search. As such, a real estate agent can teach you about potential homebuying challenges and help you avoid these problems as you search for your ideal Sunshine State luxury residence.

In addition, a real estate agent is happy to help you acquire a Florida luxury residence at the lowest price. He or she will negotiate with a seller's agent on your behalf. And by doing so, a real estate agent will help you get the best price on a Florida luxury residence – without exception.

For those who want to take the first step toward acquiring a Florida luxury home, it may be beneficial to hire a real estate agent. If you have a real estate agent at your side, you can get the help you need to seamlessly navigate the Florida luxury homebuying journey.

Molly Eovino

Except for a short time, I was a permanent resident in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The heart of the Midwest!  I visited Naples for 30 years, as my parents lived here, watching the community grow from a fishing village to a destination in SW Florida. When my last college bound child hit the University of Iowa in 2001, I hit the road!

I brought with me over a decade of experience in Real Estate, excellent education, and a broad range of interests to jump into the Naples scene with gusto! I "speak" golf and tennis, theater and location/mapping!

In Naples, you will find that nearly everyone is from somewhere else! As a result, your friendships will span the nation and globe, with immediate contacts in England, Germany, France, the East Coast, and the Midwest! Once visitors have experienced Naples, they want to call it home, and then "visit" where they originate from! I am no different, and have tried to learn as much about the town and all it´s history and activities to feel like a native!

I promise you a city tour to help you fall in love with the flavor of Southwest Florida, from the lure of the beaches, morning and sunset, to the different types of golf (equity or bundled). May I interest you in the gourmet flavors that abound, from food to entertainment?

As an active community volunteer in Iowa, I worked on Junior League fundraising events, the Cancer Crusade, March of Dimes, and Kidney foundation drives, and was extremely active in the school committees involving sports (football,basketball, track); cheerleading; and 4 years of show choir productions, Concert Choir, and Madrigal Singers!

Naples has already found a nitch for me in the Naples Players Theater, where I volunteer as a backstage dresser to advance their enthusiastic cause!  I just haven´t gotten on stage...  Growing up in a musical environment,Broadway shows in Naples keep me humming.

The Naples Children & Education Foundation draws my heartfelt attention& volunteer hours  from summer months to the annual Naples Winter Wine Festival in late January.  Their mission statement "supports effective, disciplined charitable programs that significantly improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-riskchildren in Collier County, Florida".  As a non-profit organization,the wine festival raised nearly $12 million during the 2019 event! From helping with mailings, to what I call the "quilting table of many hands" for events, I've met many like-minded friends, who believe it's all about the kids!

My educational background spans a multitude of areas, but now they all concentrate on improving my real estate performance. It includes:
BA degrees in Psychology & Vocational Rehabilitation from the University of Northern Colorado.
Mediation Seminars for the Iowa Farmer-Creditor Mediation Services.
Real Estate License in Iowa, REALTOR® 1988
Graduate of the Realtor´s Institute (GRI) 1992
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) 1994
Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) 1999-2018
Licensed Broker-Associate, Florida, 2001
Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) 2009
Certified Investor Agent Specialist (CIAS) 2012
Resort & Second Home Property Specialist (RSPS) 2016

As you can tell by my "personal resume", we will become friends as well as business associates. I enjoy teaching my customers Real Estate-ese so that you can make an educated decision regarding your first or second home, or your new rental property. The market in Naples is excellent, and truly is a beautiful Paradise! With year-round tropical temperatures and deep blue skies, I hope that you will agree that I provide

"Midwest warmth in the Naples sunshine"!
