WHAT IS A FLORIDA CO-OP AND HOW DO I GET A FLORIDA MORTGAGE?
A Florida Co-op or cooperative apartment is an individual living unit within a Florida Co-op building or development where a buyer purchases shares (equal to the value of the unit) in a Florida Co-op corporation that holds title to a building   Coops are predominantly located.  Normally a Florida Co-op sponsor will buy the building (takes out the underlying Florida Co-op mortgage) and then will sell off the shares.  Therefore, when buying a coop, you are actually buying Florida Co-op shares in a corporation, not buying real property.
HOW TO FLORIDA CO-OP BUILDINGS GET PRE QUALIFIED BY FLORIDA MORTGAGE LENDERS?
To start with Florida Co-op lender will look at the following factors to see if a particular Florida Co-op building corresponds with their guidelines:  the Florida Co-op property’s resale value, investor concentration, and Florida Co-op owner occupancy.  Based on the previous example, if there are 20 units, five sponsor rentals and 15 sold units (with 12 owner-occupied units and 3 units being rented by the Florida Co-op owners), the following ratios and guideline percentages result:
HOW IS A FLORIDA CO OP DIFFERENT FROM A HOUSE OR CONDO?
When you get a mortgage to purchase a  house or condo you get the deed. But not with a Florida Co-op, individual units do not have individual deeds. A Florida Co-op mortgage is actually a “share-loan” or a loan that purchases a share within in the Florida Co-op. The difference makes securing a loan for a Florida Co-op more complicated them getting a traditional mortgage and fewer mortgage lenders offer share loans.
FLORIDA COOP BOARDS AND APPROVAL RULES
To buy into a Florida Co-op, you must be approved by the Florida Co-op board. The approval process is often extensive and may require interviews and character references, in addition to your employment, financial, and credit history. Florida Co-op boards can refuse a prospective buyer for any reason, so long as it doesn’t run afoul of anti-discrimination policies. What you can do WITH your Florida Co-op unit. As a Florida Co-op shareholder, you don’t have the right of alienation where basically, you can’t sell your Florida Co-op share (or rent your Florida Co-op unit) without the permission of the Florida Co-op board. Some Florida Co-op associations have the right of first refusal, meaning they have the option to buy the property before you offer your Florida Co-op to outside buyers. Florida Co-op boards, though, can simply deny a sale without matching the sale price.

HOW FLORIDA COOP OWNERSHIP DIFFERS FROM CONDO OWNERSHIP
When you purchase a condominium you are purchasing a specific unit the surface and the interior walls of the unit in the space the condo contains. With a Co-op, you are purchasing a share in a corporation, which then entitles you to a unit. This share is considered personal property rather than real estate.
