We have very strong relationships with sellers who are holding on listing their property due to Covid19 or because they don’t want to go through the hassle of showing their property on a regular basis. With the right buyer, we can make off market deals happen to solve a problem for both the seller and buyer.
Many buyer ask us whether it’s the right time to purchase a home. We think so. First, the interest rates are at an all time low and rising. Now is the time to take advantage of more favorable lending. In addition, we’re seeing extreme inflation in the market. Everything is going up including rents. One way to hedge against inflation is to purchase real estate.
Many neighborhood are seeing a complete transformation. We’re seeing people move into South Florida from California and the North East (NY, Boston, etc). That’s not helping buyer. The demand keeps going up due to migration. The fact that many people don’t need to go to the office is accelerating the influx of people to South Florida.
