¿Who Qualifies as a First-Time Homebuyer in Florida?

For quick clarification, a first-time homebuyer is defined as any family or individual who has never owned a home, or at least not in the last three years, depending on the region. Some local programs, for example, suggest that Floridians are still eligible if they haven't owned a home in the past three years.
