Bertrand, Home Buyer in Normandy Isles, Miami...

Is it possible for a foreigner to buy a condo in Florida and have it let for short term leases (holiday let), and personal use?

Asked by Bertrand, Normandy Isles, Miami Beach, FL Fri Mar 2, 2012

I could bring a reasonable part of the amount of the purchase and set up a company to put this investment in.

Yes it is possible, but all depends on the associations requirements. Some allow short term rentals and some not. I am happy to assist you further if you contact me.

I closed another condo-hotel. In this case you can use it as a hotel when you in town, and give it to the hotel to rent it for you, they alos take take of most of the maintenance.
Depending your budget, I work with two condo-hotel on the beach prices around 80,000 and another $250,000.

Currently working with a couple of European customers doing the same thing. You need to figure out what building is the best fit for you there are only a handful of associations that will allow owners to do this. Call us if we can help you further.

Hi Bertrand,
There are beachfront condos in the North Beach area that do very well with short term month to month rentals. These buildings are the Akoya at 6365 Collins av & the Bel Aire at 6515 Collins Av. The prices range from $300,000 to $1million. There is also Canyon Ranch which allows shorter term rentals at 6701 & 6801 Collins Av, with prices starting in the mid $400's.

I'm happy to assist you further.

You can buy and lease. Most building have rules on the length of the lease or the number of times a year you cmay lease. It also depends on the city. Ex: In Miami Beach it is illegal to lease for less than 6 months by city law. In Florida an hotel tax should also be charged to all lease of 6 months or less.

Hi Bertrand,
It does not matter if you are a Foreign National or US Citizen, it soley depends on the building's rental policy and if they allow short term rentals.

If you have any more questions please contact me.

Betrand - As a foreign investor you are allowed to do short term rentals if the buildings condo docs allow it. Every building is different some allow month to month rentals, others require a min of 6 months and others a min of one year.

My partner Scott and I would be happy to help you purchase the perfect investment property.
