Thanks to those who provide a real answer.  To set the record straight, this question is being asked because it is REQUIRED through the Real estate courses online and in several states.  Thus, that is why you are seeing on this real estate website-because the online course requires the student to post it here and record it in the course.  Thanks for your help!

I think it is funny that no one knows...they should know.

Florida is a Statute of Fraud State, which means that a contract must be in writing in order to be enforcable.  In Florida, real estate oral contracts mean nothing, so this statute was designed to avoid fraud.

Each state is different.

Don't any of you read your textbook?  This is a typcial test question and you should research the answer yourself instead of pestering people on a real estate site for the answers to your homework.
