Things to Consider When Buying a Home in Ave Maria

Process & Timing

Every contract involves a number of timelines that are important to be aware of to ensure compliance. Deposits, inspections, financing, closing, and other contingencies all have specific timing requirements and, as your Agent, we ensure compliance from down payment to closing, eliminating surprises in your home-buying journey.

New vs. Existing Homes

Whether you build your new home or buy an existing home, it’s important to know what your options are and where the market is at. If you’re building new, we recommend working with an Agent that is loyal to you and not the Developer, to ensure your best interests are covered. We’ll work with you to make an informed decision in any home buying scenario.


A mortgage and pre-approval are key components of the home-buying process, particularly when a Buyer is making an offer contingent upon their ability to obtain financing due to unique circumstances — self-employment, a new job, etc. We partner with a network of trusted financing and mortgage professionals and can make recommendations based on your particular needs upon request.


Home inspections are not required when buying a home but, we wouldn’t recommend skipping it in any situation, even when buying a newly-built house. Home Inspections are conducted by licensed professionals that look through every nook and cranny of a property, searching for defects and other surprises, bringing peace of mind to the transaction.

Location Fees

Homeowner Association (HOA) and Community Development District (CDD) fees are a part of Ave Maria real estate and are requirements of all homeowners. HOA fees are due monthly, while CDD fees are due annually at tax time. We’ll help you understand any fees you may incur with your new home purchase and how they benefit the you as well as the community.

Escrow & Closing Costs

A Buyer’s offer to purchase a home is typically submitted along with a protected deposit known as escrow, which indicates a serious intention to purchase, but is also refundable in case financing falls through or a home inspection is unsatisfactory. Closing costs are the fees required to complete a real estate contract. Both are required, but negotiable.
