Miami Real Estate Investing in Foreclosed Properties, REO’s

This article is about Investing in Miami’s dynamic real estate foreclosure market.



What was the scene for Miami Investors before the 2000’s?

Around the late 1990s, Miami’s neighborhoods were inhabited mostly by retirees and tourists. It was spotted with lots of motels, several of them titled after Las Vegas properties such as the Dunes, the Sands, and the Desert Inn – amongst others.



Everything changed around 1997, when building, planning and zoning resolutions were taken away from the Miami-Dade County Commission and placed in the hands of the Sunny Isles City Commission, whose current fellows comprise of real estate executive, a property legal representative and a former P.R. executive. With this, the next occurrence was the most remarkable neighborhood conversion seen in Miami since cocaine cash reconstructed the city’s downtown area starting in the late 1970s.
There were certain crashes at certain periods, as notably – Miami properties prices fell by 37 percent between late 2005 and same period in 2009 leaving the real estate prospects unattractive.

The Miami housing market and foreclosed property investment has become highly prominent in the United States and has become much of an export economy, since overseas investors continue to invest in the zone. This recent trend is largely owed to the massive in-flow of foreign cash. Overseas investors buy real estate, not for the purpose of living in it but much rather as an investment.

In the state, over ninety percent of all the current day downtown construction is due to the high demand from overseas investors. These overseas investors are much attracted in “high-end” real estate and are paying real cash for deals. This is evidenced in Miami’s current inclination towards luxury properties.
While other states in the United States are prosperous in their unique ways, that of Miami fascinates overseas investors like no other city does.
Despite the price upsurge in several quarters, demand from investors still remains strong and thus keeps the Miami’s property market balanced. The present day average property price in the Miami property market is around $280,000 while a foreclosed property goes for around $70,000 lesser.

  1. Wholesale – You can buy properties and sell them to someone else for a quick flip. The key in wholesaling is to leave in enough space for the next guy to make his money rehabbing/ renvating or renting the property.
  2. Rehab/ Renovate – You can buy a property, fix, and sell it off at market price.
