Florida land investment opportunities

Why buy land in South West Florida

By | Land, News, News Florida, Property in Florida

Why Buy Land In South West Florida

 

We first started selling overseas properties over 15 years ago and have now sold houses, land and apartments in over 30 different countries and lived in seven.  Over that time we’ve been educated in a number of different types of property investment, the two main areas and the most popular, are buying cheap in an emerging market with a view to the economy and property market going through a phase of relatively quick expansion or buying in a distressed market, that’s now on the road to recovery.

 

So, the land lots we are selling in Florida fall into the second category.

 

Around ten years ago, Florida and indeed the whole of the US went through one of its worst financial crashes in its history, and prior to this, many counties in Florida had already been ‘Zoned’ into residential building lots, see pic below

 

 

Now the majority of these lots were bought and owned by large property developers or land owners, buying on finance (as was the norm in the US at the time) with a view to developing them at a later date, following on from exactly what areas like Orlando and Miami had done so successfully in the past, however, the ‘credit crunch’ then hit the US hard, and Florida was hit even harder than most.  So you are left with situation whereby developers and private owners can no longer afford the loans they took out to buy the lots or build the developments they had planned, so the banks had no choice but to step in a re-possess these assets.

 

This means the banks are now sat on literally thousands of lots, without a clue what to do with them, banks lend money and make profits from interest rates, so it’s not in their interest to sit on so many tangible assets.

 

Now during this time, a number of cash rich investors, with the idea that Florida ALWAYS recovers, went along to the banks and started buying the lots back for next to nothing, the banks were happy to clear their books and these savvy investors, happy to spend a bit of cash and sit back for a few years, secured themselves some pretty nifty deals.

 

So that leads us to a stage whereby these land owners, are selling off the lots they bought, making a sizable profit as they do so (due to the minuscule prices they originally paid) but still way, way, way below the current markets high of 11/12 years ago, the majority of the lots we are selling around Charlotte and Lee Counties, have historical values of between $25,000-$35,000, and there is nothing to suggest they won’t reach these values again and then continue to rise after that.  Let’s not forget, love or hate Trump, the guy knows he’s real estate, and it’s a fact that the USA currently has its lowest unemployment rate in 58 years and its strongest economy in 20 years, so things are on the rise again.

 

So, it doesn’t take a genius to realise that these lots WILL increase in value as things continue to boom.

 

Another little snippet of just how exciting this area is and what I believe is stone cold concrete proof of this areas potential, is the new Sunseeker Super Resort in Port Charlotte, literally 5-10 minutes from the majority of our lots, this is a $600,000,000 resort, being built by Allegient Airlines, one of Americas biggest low cost airlines.  Now blue-chip companies DO NOT build $600,000,000 resorts in areas that they are not 100% sure are going to develop into something special and you can see the resort for yourself on the following link

 

https://www.google.com/search?q=sunseeker+resort+port+charlotte&rlz=1C1CHBD_en-GBGB723GB723&oq=sunsee&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j0j69i57j69i59j0l2.3903j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

 

So a few bits about owning land there, the only on-going costs are land taxes, in south west Florida, they have some of the lowest land taxes in the whole of the US, and you would pay between $150-$250, this is the only ongoing cost you would have to incur and is easily paid annually through the government website.

There are no time frames on when or even if you build, all lots have residential planning permission for single family properties, no foreign ownership rules (unless you reside in a country with links to ISIS) and all closings are done via a licensed US title company, who work un government jurisdiction, who will also issue you with freehold titles deeds and title insurance upon closing of your lots.

 

So all in all, we believe you will find hard to find such an affordable, low risk property/land investment with the potential to double, treble or quadruple in value, anywhere in the world at present, which is why our lots sell so quickly and the majority of our buyers come back for more.

Worst case scenario, you are still left with a low cost, tangible asset you can use yourself, with no debt, completely freehold and easily transferable to loved ones.

2019 is the perfect year to consider investing in the Riviera Maya

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

2019 is the perfect year to consider investing in the Riviera Maya

 

We’ve barely made it through mid-January and 2019 is already looking positive for the Riviera Maya. Besides having award-winning beaches, near-perfect year-round weather, and being very affordable, the Riviera Maya is moving progressively forward in many directions.

This, of course, makes it the perfect time to consider investing in the region – whether you’re thinking Cancun, Tulum, Akumal or Playa del Carmen. Mexico’s new government and administration are putting more emphasis on promoting self-sustaining communities, enhancing public transportation, and protecting Mexico’s natural resources. These, and other elements, will not only guarantee a successful 2019, but they will also establish a path for greatness in the future.

 

 

New Transportation for Easier Mobility

Getting around from city to city and all points in between, can become expensive and, sometimes, very cumbersome. Mexico offers a variety of public transportation options, both private and commercial. Mexico has an ample supply of buses, shuttle services, taxi and colectivos to get around. However, Mexico’s latest endeavour offers another option that will give tourists a new way to see the Yucatan Peninsula. The Mayan Train will bring tourism to several communities that would otherwise be overlooked for lack of transportation. Moreover, other transportation methods for locals and tourists are being considered for this year, such as the Metrobus system along the Federal Highway.

 

 

Communities Off the Beaten Path…But Not Too Far

 

It seems that smaller communities are getting more attention from tourists who are looking for a subtler and more relaxing getaway. The Riviera Maya offers such a diverse selection of destinations that range from mega hot spots like Playa del Carmen and Cancun to laidback communities similar to Akumal and Puerto Morelos. In fact, Puerto Morelos has seen double-digit growth in tourism over the last few years. Luckily, it’s a short ride from Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun. So, if you’re betting on vacation rentals in those major cities, you’re golden. Many of the Riviera Maya’s smaller communities are experiencing above-average traffic from tourism. This means there are still plenty of opportunities to be had.

 

Airline Traffic

Another reason why the Yucatan Peninsula continues growing in popularity is that the Cancun International Airport keeps adding new routes. Now, we all know that following airport indicators is key when researching the option to invest in a region. These additional routes come from North America, South America, Europe and many Eastern parts of the world. There is no doubt that there are more to come. In order to create a vacation mecca, you have to have an airport that can accommodate all the incoming traffic. Cancun now has four very modern and up-to-date terminals that can handle millions of visitors. In December 2018, the airport reported 25 million passengers coming and going. This is a 6.9% increase over 2017 and is looking to be busier in 2019.

Award-Winning Destination

Other reasons why people continue investing in the Riviera Maya, of course, is because it’s an award-winning destination. There are an abundant of other destinations to visit in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende are only a few. However, the Riviera Maya continues receiving allocates for being the best destination in Mexico. What started as a back-packers off-the-beaten-path haven has now become a mega vacation mecca with the purest white-sand beaches, beautiful turquoise waters and perfect weather.

 

Eco-Conscious Efforts

Of course, this constant growth and influx of tourism means that keeping the region’s environmental integrity intact has been a challenge. But one that the municipality of Quintana Roo has made their mission to comply. Just this year, two more beaches were added to the Riviera Maya’s Blue Flag list. The millions of tourists definitely take a toll on the area’s ecosystem, land and water. The Blue Flag Certification is part of a world organization (Foundation of Environmental Education) that sets high standards for education, quality and safety. In brief, it hands out certificates to water-related terrains that maintain high standards in sustainability.

This goes hand in hand with efforts to become more sustainable as a whole community. More and more people are joining green movements, and developers are not staying far behind. Many new real estate developers are finding solutions to the damage that building can cause to the environment. This means adding solar panels, water-recycling systems or locally-sourced and natural materials.

Moreover, in 2019, the government will be taking a look at different projects to work with the excess of sargassum that has been washing up on the shores of the Mexican Caribbean.

 

Make a Profit from the Riviera Maya in 2019

When looking to invest your hard-earned money, you need to consider the following points:

Investment’s potential for return on investment (present and future);

Maintaining safe consistency within its own climatic environment;

Having the investment in a position throughout any and all regional changes. The Riviera Maya is guaranteed to be one of the best investments to make in 2019. In fact, International Living listed it as the number one destination for real estate investment in December 2018. The world is full of opportunities; but there is nothing quite like Mexico’s Riviera Maya.

Why INVEST in North Cyprus?

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

– Fast investment return

– Low prices

– Growing economy – North Cyprus is a small place, but with a fast growing economy providing a wide range of investment opportunities

– Safe place to invest – top 3 lowest crime rate in Europe

– Guaranteed rental income- over 60.000 young people from more than 100 countries study at its international universities, making education the leading sector of its economy

– Visa free for all Eastern European countries

– 10 years income tax free for investments in the Tourism sector

– Increasing  Tourism, partly due to the increase in 5 star hotels and casinos and extension of the national airport,Ercan

– Political security. There is a strong willingness on both sides of the island for a reunification, which will boost property prices in North Cyprus and will open many business opportunities

Do you remember your first foreign holiday; how the warm air hit you when you stepped through the door of the plane, the sunlight pouring through the window first thing in the morning, sea water as warm and gentle as a bath and the smell of barbecued lamb and herbs for dinner? Well that’s North Cyprus, the Mediterranean as it used to be.

It’s no wonder that increasing numbers of Europeans and Scandinavians are choosing to buy property in this lovely and historic place. Britons in particular feel at home in North Cyprus, where they drive on the left hand side of the road, Sterling is accepted everywhere and most people speak English.

Life in North Cyprus is easy, but when it comes to moving abroad, or buying a holiday home, price remains a major consideration – and on this North Cyprus is a clear winner.

The northern half of Cyprus boasts some of the best beaches, the most spectacular scenery and unspoiled landscapes on the island and yet property here remains under priced because of years of political uncertainty.

For the past 40 years Cyprus has been divided into two ethnic regions, the Greek-Cypriot Republic in the south and the Turkish-Cypriot north.

Unrecognized by the international community and with limited transport links and some trade embargoes, the North has remained something of a Sleeping Beauty.

This has created an artificially-low property market. For example, a one-bedroom studio flat in a managed development costs just £40,000,  a newly-built two to three-bedroom apartment overlooking the sea, usually with a communal pool, can be bought for less than £70,000, while it is perfectly possible to find a three-bedroom villa with garden and pool for just under £125,000.

Even big luxury builds with all the extras tend to be about half the price of similar villas in the south and way below similar properties in France, Spain or Portugal.

But now prices are edging upwards as observers mark new political developments which seem likely to bring North Cyprus into the European fold.

Leaders of the two sides have entered into a fresh round of talks aimed at settling their 40-year-old division. Hopes are high that a UN-backed deal will create a new bi-zonal Federation of Cyprus, formed by two equal states of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots. This would mean North Cyprus joining South Cyprus as a fully-recognised member of the EU.

In 2004 a similar proposal known as the Annan Plan sparked the first North Cyprus property boom. Unfortunately, reunification was ultimately rejected by the Greek Cypriot side, but those who bought property in the north at that time have seen the value of their investment more than double.

This year both sides have signed a joint agreement BEFORE sitting down to detailed talks, so the prospects for a settlement are much stronger. Local estate agents and constructors are already seeing signs of a new boom, with sales up by 25% this year and increased interest from Russia, Scandinavia and the UK.

So there has never been a better time to invest in North Cyprus.

Residency in Northern Cyprus

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

Residence Permit

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus law states that residence permits can be applied for once you have bought your North Cyprus Home. The British Residence Society can provide you with all relevant information. When you arrive in North Cyprus, you are issued with a 1 month tourist visa. After that you must apply for a residence permit. The procedure is fairly straight forward but does require medical checks for HIV, Typhus etc at the hospital in Lefkosa. The current cost is approximately £150 for your first application and then a small renewal fee in subsequent years.

The standard procedure for applying for a permit is as follows:

You must make yourself known to your local Immigration Office by taking your passport. Local Immigration Offices are found at the Police station.

Permits are issued by the Department of Immigration in Lefkosa, The office can be found in a building at the back of the bus station on the 3rd floor.

For a Temporary Permit you will need:

A written application with legal documents showing your identity – photocopies of your passport are acceptable. A letter from your local Muhtar, quoting your passport number. The Koçan (deeds) and number of your residence or equivalent confirming your place of residence. If your deeds have not been issued then a photocopy of your contract will suffice. Proof of sufficient funds to maintain yourselves and any dependants, i.e. photocopies of bank statements, pension slips etc. In addition, six passport size photographs are required.

A preliminary investigation by the Immigration Police is requested.

If the preliminary investigation report is positive, the immigration section of the local Police Directorate is instructed to accept your application. Documents are then forwarded to the Immigration Directorate of the general directorate of the Police and then onto the Immigration Department.

You are then referred to a doctor for a medical report. A blood test and X-Ray are included in these tests. Results usually take about three weeks.

The applicant may be issued a permit upon applying in person at the Immigration Department if all requirements are met and passport, revenue stamp (approximate value 1YTL) and relevant fee are submitted.

For a Permanent Residence Permit the requirements are as follows:

By law the foreign resident has to obtain and completed a minimum of three consecutive temporary residence permits before submitting an application, which may then take a further two years before being granted.

  • The applicant has to have a place to live. Property ownership is required.
  • The applicant has to have a documented regular income.
  • The applicant has to be retired.

North Cyprus Title Deeds – The Facts

By | News, North Cyprus Property News

North Cyprus Title Deeds

It is always important when investing in North Cyprus property– as anywhere – to get the property title deeds. The current situation between North Cyprus and south Cyprus means that many people are confused over this issue. The events of 1974 divided the island, and hence this year is vitally important in deciding property ownership. Here is a quick guide to current North Cyprus property title deeds, to help you secure the North Cyprus property of your dreams.

The only title you will need

The only North Cyprus property title that you should consider, and indeed the only property title you should be offered, is a Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) freehold. This title comes in four formats.

  1. Pre 1974 Turkish Freehold Title

This is the title for land or property owned by a Turkish Cypriot before 1974.

  1. Pre 1974 Foreign Freehold Title

This is the title for land or property owned by a foreign national (i.e. non Turkish Cypriot) before 1974. These titles are recognised internationally.

  1. TRNC Exchange Title

This is the title for land or property given to a Turkish Cypriot in exchange for land and property they owned in south Cyprus before 1974, and which they were forced to leave behind on moving to the North. The government assessed the value of both land and goods left behind, and allocated the land or property in the North, in exchange for the waiving of the rights to their land in the south. The original pre-1974 owner of the land or property would have been Greek Cypriot. This is also known as the Esdeger (pronounced Esh-day-air).

  1. TRNC TMD Title

This is the title for land given to Turkish Cypriots for military or government service, or to Turkish settlers to encourage economic growth in certain parts of the North, after 1974. As with the Esdeger, the original pre-1974 owner of the land or property would have been Greek Cypriot, who abandoned the land or property after 1974.

Which Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Title Deed to consider

It is considered safe to purchase any North Cyprus property or land, which has any of the above title deeds. However, as with all Northern Cyprus property purchases, whether for enjoyment or investment, you should always employ an independent solicitor to check that the deeds are indeed legal and above board.

North Cyprus Estate Agents and Title Deeds

Most North Cyprus estate agents will only deal in properties that carry one of the four types of deed.
