Most areas in Naples are poised to appreciate in the next 5 years. As the saying goes "Location, Location, Location" the number of people that desire to be in warm temeratures, sunshine and near water has not changed. What has changed is that this is one of the places the real estate market has already started to change and there is a draw from not only this and surrounding countries but across the globe for the ammenities this area offers. I don't believe it will ever be a skyrocket againg but I do believe it will continue to appreciate at a steady rate for the next five years and beyond. Many articles are posted on my facebook page about this. Feel free to visit. ... more

All areas of Miami Beach will appreciate in the coming 5 years. Those wise enough to purchase now will look back in 5 years and see condo and single famiily homes higher. Rents will be higher and interest rates be also be higher. From South Beach to Sunny Isles Beach. North Beach will be the hottest area and the best investment you can make. Its the only truly self contained walkable neighborhood besides South Beach with all your shopping dining and groceries outside your door. Areas that have a community where people can step outside and walk, shop, dine, stroll the beach without getting into their car is the place to be. North Beach offers this and more. Its all about the view. Look for a place on or near water with a ocean or bay view and you will be pleasantly surprised in 5 years at your investment. ... more

It is going to be very difficult to find anything worthwhile in that price range in the area you refer to. I looked very quickly at the MLS & the only properties are 2/1 homes under $250K. You can go east of the Trail and find some homes in your price range but in all honesty, west of Trail is out.

If you would like to meet, please contact me by phone or email. I do have the SFR designation which refers to short sale & foreclosure specialist.

Hi there,
I would love to share some of my ideas with you. This is an excellent buyer's market and you can find excellent value's in foreclosures and regular sales. Some of my ideas would depend on the amenities you would enjoy here and a budget you have in mind and if you plan on making a move before or after the sale of your MN home. Until we can speak perhaps you would like to take a look at our up to date SW Florida MLS from the comfort of your home 24 hours a day. I will welcome all of your questions and concerns. Happy to help you.

The Beachland area of Vero by the Sea is an outstanding area with Old Florida charm. It really needs to be experienced! It is a little south of St Augustine but also has milder winters.
I would be happy to send you a number of homes that meet your special requirements.

That boat has pretty much pulled out of port. The occasional deal comes along where the numbers are worth it though. Higher end appears to be doing a little better in terms of flipping although your hold time and cost will be longer and greater than anything well priced under 200k. ... more

Eliot Ward answered:
The answer to your question varies by geography and is different from market to market. For example, here in Utah, the typical earnest money deposit that is most common is $1,000. Normally, there isn't additional earnest money unless there are unusual circumstances. Different markets have different practices and so I would ask folks in Tampa, FL what the standard amount is.

Some markets use a percentage ranging from 1 to 3 percent as an earnest money deposit. The higher the earnest money deposit amount, the more serious the buyer is. In a seller's market, buyers may increase the earnest money amount to distinguish their offers from others.

Ron Thomas answered:
No, you probably have it dialed in:
In the last 50 years, there have been few times, and few situations where you would experience instant cash flow.
You might find some situations right now; assuming you either put enough cash down, or found a fixer and spent a lot of money.
There are a lot of investors out there, looking for the same thing you are.

Good luck and may God bless

KIM SETZER answered:
Hi Walker,

I would welcome the opportunity to be your buyers agent and negotiate on your behalf. I take pride in my career and excel in negotiations and thrive on the overall process. Do you have a set price in your mind? Have previous negotiations failed? What type of sale is it? ( REO/Short Sale oe neither?) Are you aware of any competing offers? Who initially showed you the house? How long has the property been on the market? Are you financing or paying cash?

I will do all I can to entice the seller's to accept our proposal & terms, find comps that support your offer or reasoning your offer lower than the asking price should be accepted.

Please feel free to call or e-mail me directly to further discuss our mutual endeavor. I am up for the challenge. :)

Hope you are having a GREAT weekend!

Thank you kindly,

Ginad answered:
Preferred neighborhoods: Cypress Run area is a favorite. Or something that has maplewood elementary close by/distracted for.

Please please please, I know you all have your opinions and guidance. This is what we want and were willing to wait for it so please don't suggest differently. Were looking to close on or after mid october.

I'm looking for something that hasn't hit market yet so we have a stronger chance, and because nothing currently listed meets what we want. Thank you all for your time.

Shanna Rogers answered:
Hi Ivan,

You can see if the seller will renegotiate the purchase price - using the appraisal as reasoning. Of course, you can pay the original agreed upon price, but why would you want to pay $54,000 more than the property is valued at? At the most, you should only pay $10,000 more than appraised value. Of course, it depends on how badly you want the house. Just keep in mind, if you have to (or want to) sell any time soon, you will take a loss. Try negotiating the price with the seller and if they won't budge, as long as your apprasial contingency has not been removed in writing, you can cancel contract and find a home worth what you can pay.

Congrats on deciding to move. A change of scenery can be a good thing. I'm sure people familiar with the area will start recommending possible locations for you to consider. Until then, pull up a map from google (Google Maps) and pick out some cities. They you can start searching for homes and researching the area on Trulia.

Best of luck with your search and move.
