WHY INVEST IN FLORIDA LAND?
Florida has and will continue to be one of America's fastest-growing states.
By 2030, the population of Florida will have surpassed New York as the nation's third largest, according to the Census Bureau. Estimates show a gain of 11 million residents over the next 25 years. The latest census predictions show Florida's current population of 17.5 million approaching 20 million by 2010 and topping 21 million five years later. The highest percentage of people relocate in coastal areas making land investment in this area quite lucrative. About 40 percent of the projected growth will come from people 65 and older. The elderly will comprise 27.1 percent of Florida's population in 2030 -- up from 17.6 percent in 2000. Florida will be one of 10 states where retirees will outnumber schoolchildren. In 2000, children outnumbered people 65 and older by 840,000 in the state of Florida. But ...by 2030, the "under 18" population will be outnumbered by the older population (estimated at 2 million more older people than children). Florida's youth population will drop from 23 percent to 20 percent.
Investors Return to Real Estate!!
Florida Home Sales on the Rise!!
Mortgage and Real Estate Crisis - Consider this...
In order to create wealth in Real Estate a plan is needed TODAY. That plan should consist of buying at a low cost to enable selling for profit in the future! If looking for property that is build able in the future, and would like to be able to afford the property, then seriously consider buying today while it is still affordable. Just as we will very likely pay more then $5.00 per gallon of gas in 5 to 10 years....we will also be paying more for land in 5 to 10 years!
"Warren Buffet was once asked...."when do you buy a stock"? His answer was very simple, "when its DOWN and no one else is". As one can imagine his answer was just the opposite when asked when to sell a stock. They call this a buyers market for a reason, because "it is the best time to buy". When the market is down BUY, and when the market is up SELL. Do not make the same mistake many made in the past. Do not wait for the market to go up in order to buy -- when the market is up SELL what you bought when the market was DOWN; because you had a plan. Buy now while there are still deals to be had. "
NOW CONSIDER THIS...
The Fall 2007 mortgage/credit crisis is
creating many opportunities to buy well located land & lots at
bargain prices. Rarely do buyers have the chance to buy at absolute
market bottoms and land is the best way to participate when the Florida
real estate market has it's price recovery. After the real estate boom
that topped out in mid-2005 we are seeing the bottom of a price
collapse that has reduced land prices 60 to 80 percent. Based on
Florida's long term high growth rate from immigration, retiring
baby-boomers, and others attracted to Florida's climate, beaches, and
high employment growth, this chance to buy land at dramatically low
prices will be the best we will see in our lifetimes. The need for
well-located land is growing, Florida's population grew by 314,000 in
2007 and has grown by more than 2,000,000 since the year 2000. Florida
created the most jobs of any state in 2006, with 211,400 new jobs. The
October, 2007 unemployment rate was only 4.0 percent.
cycles are more extreme in land than other real estate. We are passing
the low point of this cycle, which is down 60 to 80% from the summer,
2005 high point of the last cycle. Buyers at this point in the cycle
can possibly make 100 to 150% or more when prices get back to the
levels of the summer of 2005. Since prices at each cycle high usually
exceed the previous highs, potential gains are excellent compared to
most other investments.
lot values grow consistently over long periods of time because the
population of Florida is growing by 300,000+ people/year and the amount
of desirable, buildable land is shrinking. Land in South Florida and
within a 30 minute drive of the coast is the most likely to increase in
value because that's where 90 percent of the people want to live.
Lots don't give you management and maintenance headaches like rental
properties and you can realize great deals in this buyer's market.
In our website you can find what you need to buy a great investment
parcel or parcels while prices are at this temporary all-time low.
With the current Euro to U.S. dollar devaluation, Europeans buying Florida real estate is at an all-time high.

The recent world wide economic meltdown has
affected property in Florida no more or less than anywhere else. We all thought
that it was more to do with the subprime lending that took place across the
United States. However, the economic state was not just a problem of
Florida or the U.S. It is now rampant throughout
Europe and on the doorsteps of their Banks, and their Governments and
affecting their economies, too. Also it can be seen that
investors in properties of the Eastern European countries, are encountering numerous problems
with the property title process. Many Banks worldwide were
promoting property bonds and life assurance linked bonds
and products along with pension plans that have not performed as
predicted. Investors went wild buying property without research and due
diligence. Funds were increasingly streamlined to purchase
in property and developments direct from the
builders - without the investors knowing enough about what and where they were investing.
Kessel Holdings LLC understands
that investors are in a dilemma when researching
where to invest their fund. Property appears to be at a standstill
and the Stock Market is like a minefield with Trillions
lost over the last 24 months. These days, investors need plenty of money to
speculate. Well it is not all bad news! We can see light at the end of this tunnel.
Property is a decent investment with proper advice and correct
information. We understand that it is unlike
Gold or Oil, both of which can cause problems in
their own way.
However we have seen a recent improvement of the housing starts in the U.S.,
the first for a long time.We can also
see the inventory of houses reducing dramatically in the States and builders
are no longer building houses on speculation. This together with the general
clean up of the financial market will bide well for the property market in the
U.S. and in Florida.
Investing in Florida property is quite encouraging due to the low prices there, provided that it is targeted
for the medium
to long term. This is due to the fact that
builders have reduced prices in the hope to reduce their inventory. Also,
builders are moving away from the vacation home (short term rentals) in Florida
and are focusing on the domestic market; eventually this will eventually mean
that vacation homes become scarce and appreciate in value.
The demography of Florida has not changed due to the financial crisis.
With mild winters, pleasant summers along coastal areas and soothing showers
during the rainy season, people will still retire to Florida because of the
lesser cost of living as compared to the high density states up north.
Corporations will still relocate to Florida as a benefit for their workers,
offering a pleasant working environment.
Florida will continue to be attractive for Europeans due to its appealing weather, the
attractive exchange rate and tourist attractions. Florida has no title problems
and the market is very well regulated. Investors therefore have this as an
important factor in their favor.
Kessel Holdings LLC has many examples of
experienced investors who have had problems dealing directly with builders or
developers or their agents. We advise against this practice since many are not
impartial advisors and dealing with them may very likely represent a conflict
of interest that is not in the best interest of the potential investor.
We have years of experience and
knowledge and stands ready to assist and advise investors who are
interested in buildable prime lots and buildable waterfront lots in and
around the Port Charlotte, Florida area.
The market is slowly but steadily improving. With the right vacant
lot advisors on board your purchase and
investment in Florida vacant and buildable lots does not have to be a
daunting task.It remains our primary
mission to make your transaction a rewarding one.
