Will You Take Advantage of the 2017 Palm Beach Market?



Three groups will have big opportunities in the 2017 Palm Beach real estate market. Today I’ll explain how the groups stand to benefit from market conditions.
We believe there’s always a great opportunity to be had in the real estate market, and you just have to position yourself to take advantage of it. That’s why today, I wanted to talk a bit about some of the great opportunities that will be available in the Palm Beach market in 2017.

The first opportunity lies with people currently renting homes. As a renter, your rent payment goes up when your landlord’s costs go up. By buying a house in 2017, you can lock in two things: your interest rate and your property taxes. If you rent, it’s time to get off the fence and into your new home.

Move-up buyers also have big opportunities in 2017. Many homeowners have a home in a seller’s market price range, giving them the perfect chance to move up into their dream home. If you own a house under $400,000, it’s likely the best time for you to take advantage of the record-low rates and the cooling luxury market. You would be selling in a seller’s market and likely moving up to a buyer’s market.


If you rent, it’s time to get off the fence and into your new home.

Finally, the third big opportunity is for those of you looking to buy real estate as an investment to have tenants and positive cash flow.

If you have any questions about how you can take advantage of the market in 2017, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We would love to help you.

Finally, if you take a look in the video above, you’ll see that I’m in an iconic part of Palm Beach. Do you know where I am? Send your guess and you might just win a prize! All you have to do is reply to this email with your guess.

I hope to hear from you soon!

How Is the International Market Affecting South Florida Real Estate?


If you’re a home seller in South Florida, we can help you
understand how the international market is going to affect you.
South Florida is a destination spot for many international homebuyers, but which two countries will affect the real estate market the most?

The biggest impact will come from our neighbors to the east, China. China is planning on investing $21 billion outside of their country over the next few years, and a decent amount of that will be poured into the South Florida market. Not only is South Florida attractive for its stability and opportunity, but our rental market is incredibly strong, making the area very attractive to Chinese buyers.

Canada will be the other country impacting our market trends. Over the past few years, Canadians have been a huge influence on the South Florida real estate market. However, we currently have a currency issue. Because the U.S. dollar is so strong right now, Canadians have to pay 25% more to make the same purchase they would have made a few years ago.

your property to international buyers.
