Even though its been a while since you've asked this question, I'd like to chime in since no one else has answered. I've done research for clients of mine who also were interested in a new custom construction house and I can tell you that the lowest amount you should expect to pay is $200k to build the house, at the very least, and not including the land. Prices go up from there and can offer quite fancy options. Here are other expenses you may incur: the price of lots in that area range from $200k - $400k away from the beach and around a million close to the beach. You will also pay a few thousand for sewer/plumbing and a few thousand for electric. I really hope you've had luck since you asked the question, and will be happy to answer any other questions. :) ... more

Hello home buyer,

I am wondering if you are making any progress in your home search. Improved property is always best because you can depreciate it on 1040 Schedule E allowing an offset to other income. Now is a great time to start looking as our high season has just passed. Give me a call and note the link to The Strand community below. ... more

"Buy something everybody wants and someone will love it just a little bit more. "
I have used this to guide me in my 30 yrs of investing in real estate. it has served me well. it works for any type of real estate, anywhere.

Here's why it works in Naples:
1) people crave the climate
2) it is waterfront or near waterfront
3) its in the USA

Now here's what the adage avoids by default:
1) buy because it is cheap
2) extreme makeovers- good for tv shows
3) poor locations

"I only need one buyer for any property I am selling"
I have had colleagues/competitors pick at my target acquisitions for some reason or another. at times I heard them say that the average buyer would not like a particular property. even some of the most unusual development locations that I chose worked out by using these rules.

I am currently considering a move into the Naples investment real estate community because it has key attributes that have served me well in the past. I further believe that the real estate financing mess must be re-set in order for millenials to view home ownership as a valuable endeavor. in short, there is a real estate renaissance that will start in areas that were most desirable pre-recession

I would 1 look for low HOA fees. 2 look for the least amount of restrictions to season renters including pets.3. look at the taxes and rent rate. know this going in. if you plan to be here at your unit jan thru march. you can almost give up on renting it out the remainder of the time unless it is a give away for summer family vacation spot. then it would need to have close proximity to the beach. The best location is royal harbour. i can explain in detail the market metrics and why i feel it is a superior location mixed product use minus the 5th ave cost.

Florida law requires that new owners honor an existing lease but if you are on a month to month, that does not apply. You should be able to give a thirty day notice to the new owner, but ALWAYS have a real estate attorney check your existing lease first. ... more
