Florida is and will remain one of the most popular destinations for investors from around the world. Companies and large investors choose the popular Sunshine State as their home base for a variety of reasons, but also private investors have discovered these investment opportunities for themselves. Florida offers the right investment for every budget. The dream of owning a vacation home / apartment combined with a good return on investment (ROI) appeals to many people. The Sunshine State Florida offers outdoor living all year round, you can escape the cold and shorten the winter on the beach or playing golf. In the last few years in particular, it has been found that more and more European private investors want to fulfill their dream or even want to emigrate to Florida. Factors for this are various, such as the economic situation in Europe, as well as the sharp rise in real estate prices there or simply not wanting to postpone anything. Due to years of experience in the tourism and real estate business in Florida, one unfortunately sees unpleasant situations as well, which mainly affect smaller investors from abroad. They receive insufficient consulting in a wide variety of areas and later have to come to terms with disappointments and financial losses. There are many things to consider and clarify so that the purchase / investment is a success and a pleasure for those concerned. Local know-how, competence and trust provide the basis for a successful purchase.
“We want to buy a house in Florida” or “We want to emigrate to Florida”. This is where the first and possibly most important consultation begins, because not all Florida is created equal. Some clients think that once they have spent their vacation in one place, it would also be a good place to live, to work, to send the children to school.
We would like to get to know you and your needs in order to achieve success together.
Fixer-upper TV shows are everywhere, and so is the renovation, remodeling of older Florida homes. Just as often, you can also see that investors purchase a construction lot, where they can build a completely new house on it. Both are adventures that should be placed in the hands of professionals. Because you can experience unpleasant surprises if you don’t have independent experts on site. On average, the construction and / or expansion, depending on what and how much is planned, takes 6 – 8 months for a 3/2 (3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms), with a double garage and outside area. If a pool or other extras are added, it can take a few weeks longer.
The current global situation, the shortage of certain materials and delivery delays, as well as the overload of authorities (building permits) are again setting new standards. It is particularly important to call in local experts for support, who have been working with the authorities and construction companies on site for many years, so that your vacation dream comes true.
