Welcome International Visitors

Vero Beach is very hospitable to Overseas Buyers
You'll find Vero Beach to be very much a village, with no highrises to hide the environment and a diverse culture. There are many social groups that cater to individuals with overseas backgrounds. For example, Vero's "Daughters of the British Empire in the U.S.A." has been a common bond for women of British heritage living in America.
I'D ENJOY HELPING YOU WITH FLORIDA and USA REAL ESTATE
There are no restrictions to foreigners owning property anywhere in the USA but there are many differences from a European experience. The outline below applies to whether you are considering a new home or a resale.
• Agreement of Sale: Once you have found the property of your dreams, you will make an offer and an agreement of sale will be drawn up, but subject to conditions, such as obtaining a mortgage.
• Costs: The costs involved will vary but 3% to 5% is common. These include fees for inspections, title insurance and stamp taxes.
• Title Insurance: Title insurance protects the buyer of real estate in the case where information was not discovered prior to sale.
• Real Estate Taxes: Real estate taxes in the USA will vary according to where the home is located. These taxes pay for local services and schools and depend on the home's assessed value.
