Fantastic opportunity to own a home in South Florida at 50% or less of 2006 values

Fantastic Investment opportunities in South Florida at 50% or less of 2006 values.

The Opportunity

There has seldom been a better opportunity to enter the South Florida Real Estate Market. Prices on most properties are still down 50% or more even if some exclusive properties still hold their own and there is also indication of the return to luxury buying. The Setai’s famous PH-B for example closed recently for $15,000,000, or just over $2400/sf or $22,320/m2. Home-In-US assists you with evaluation of the different properties and similar to the situation in Europe, Condo associations can have different financial situations.

Foreclosure Sales and Auctions

There are also opportunities to by at further discount directly from the banks where the owners have defaulted on their loans and at the moment you can occasionally buy at a further 10 to 30% off current evaluation. This in addition to the current low market values makes South Florida the #1 place to invest at the moment and many Europeans, South Americans and Asians are taking advantage of this opportunity.

Home-in-US assists you and helps you unleash the potential and value in a property. There are always improvements that can make the property more useful and also provide a more efficient use of every square foot. Many older houses or apartments require an out of the box thinking as to how one can best transfer it into a modern and attractive living place. Questions like “should the kitchen stay where it is today” or “do we take that wall down so we can see the garden from the living room” are just two examples.

As an investor it is also important to distinguish the term of the investment. One to three years or five to ten years as the recovery will likely come faster in some areas than other. If you plan on using the property yourself its naturally most important that you are satisfied with your property and that it suits your needs and living style and is conveniently located to the areas you enjoy. Financing is available for foreign nationals.

Regardless – The time to invest in Florida is now.

The South Florida Market

Prices plummeted between 2006 and 2009 and the real estate market is currently characterized by significant local variations, in many cities or communities the number of properties for sale is more or less back at normal levels. Other areas where there was more speculation and new production like Downtown Miami continue to see an oversupply and extreme price pressure.

Commercial Opportunities

There are equally good times to buy Commercial real estate. Everything from smaller to large office, apartment, hotel and retail buildings are on sale. It’s now again possible to purchase a building and get a reasonable return at full financing.

Real Estate Investment Fund

The fall of 2010 will mark the start of our investment fund. The goal with the fund is to provide a solution for people that want to be part of the Florida real estate market recovery without having to own or maintain their own personal property.

The Company

The Home-in-US team has experience from management of international real estate equity totaling over $10 billion in assets and transactions totaling nearly $500 million as well as numerous smaller real estate “make over” projects, the first in 1993.
