Home Away from Home

Home Away from Home

Are you dreaming of sand between your toes?  If so, it may be the right time to start looking for your dream vacation home!

Here in beautiful Sarasota County, we have an array of gorgeous beaches, quaint historical city districts, hundreds of acres of parks, bike paths, and much more! I love the Suncoast, and I know you will too!


The Process

As with any new home buyer, it is important to get pre-approved for your loan. This allows you to start gathering your paperwork earlier, taking stress off of you later during the process. This will also confirm the price range of homes that you will be able to look at. 

After being pre-approved, it is time to start looking for your future vacation home. To do this, you will need a trusted realtor as they will get you in to see these homes either in-person or virtually. 

Once you find that dream home and your realtor finalizes the purchase agreement, they will begin sharing that paperwork with your lender to finalize the sale and close on the home. 

During this process, it is easiest to have all documentation prepared digitally so that it can be uploaded to our secure system. However, we understand that this is not always possible. The other options are that . . .

  • You can take pictures of the documents and submit them to our secure system. 
  • You may fax your documents to us
  • You can mail them thru the mail with a tracking number via FedEx or USPS

My goal is to make this process efficient for you and communicate with you what is needed for each part of the process.



After closing on your home, it is time to celebrate! Perhaps go to a beach, swim in your new pool, or explore Sarasota or Venice! If you’re ready to start talking about making your dream vacation home a reality, request a consultation below or email me at angie@gulfsidemtg.com
