Florida Home Finders of Canada takes great pride in helping Canadians make the best informed decisions possible when purchasing a second home or income generating property in Florida. Today's topic centres around what to expect when looking to buy Real Estate in Florida in terms of price, product, value and location.
It is imperative to understand that while prices are down approx. 50% from their peek in 2006, there is no longer a fire sale going on, rather a controlled disposition of real estate that still represents incredible value for Canadians. Many Canadians think that they can buy beachfront condos in newer buildings in a great location for under $200k. This does not exist. Beachfront properties have come back strongly. New construction condominium buildings on the beach are being sold at prices starting from $500k and up. This being said, there are still some tremendous opportunities for Canadians looking to purchase real estate in the Sunshine State.
Florida Home Finders has found some great niche properties off the beach where the best deals are currently found. Examples of these properties are a new construction low-rise condominium development called Bella Casa in Ft. Myers. This impressive property is only 15 minutes to the beautiful beaches and starts in the low $100's. The Palms Club in Orlando's exclusive MetroWest area starts in the mid $80's and is cash flow positive from day one. FHFC has recently added Callista Cay in the greater Clearwater area of Tarpon Springs, featuring brand new townhouses on the water system that leads directly to the Gulf of Mexico. Many of the homes come with boat slips included from the low $200's. Vintage Bay in Marco Island with incredible Gulf water views starts in the mid $260's. These large suites range in size from 1,600-2,000 square feet in one of Florida's most exclusive areas. The above noted properties represent a small sampling of the dozens of communities that Florida Home Finders of Canada currently recommends in Florida. Please go to the Properties section on the main toolbar on our website to view all of our outstanding properties.
It is important to understand that finding great Value is not just about getting the best price. It is about being located in a desirable area where you would like to spend time with your family and friends or where you can find great tenants to keep your property cash flow positive until you decide to use it yourself one day or perhaps sell it for a substantial gain.
