Here in Florida, real estate buyers and investors have opportunities to read all sorts of information about Florida real estate and why buying real estate in Florida, particularly commercial real estate, is a very good deal these days. However, here's something interesting to consider: what international investors and foreign buyers may be reading about Florida in their own neck of the woods.
Earlier this month, we provided a link to the British booklet available for free on the web, provided to Great Britian investors looking into Florida real estate. You can read it here.
Consider this today, an evaluation of Florida real estate provided in Turks.US where Florida commercial real estate is given two thumbs up as a sweet opportunity now for foreign investors, for the following reasons:
1. Florida Is Considered to Be In a Great Location
Florida is characterized as "... one of the most preferred states within the United States today...." with beautiful locations, access to the Atlantic Ocean, and good weather. (Well, most of the time, right?)
2. Florida's Metropolitan Areas
Florida offers real estate in "prime cities," with examples given of Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Boynton Beach, and West Palm Beach. (We would add Orlando and especially its Lake Nona area to that list, of course.) Each offers a "thriving business district." For example, Turks.US points to Miami possibly being a new international technology center within the United States.
3. Florida Welcomes People From Other Places: Language Barriers, Tourism
Florida is touted as " ... easily one of the most visited places within the United States." (We've written before about how it is easier for international investors to put their money into Florida property and South Florida development projects because of the friendliness of Florida, particularly South Florida, with its diverse cultures, large Spanish-speaking community, global ports, etc.)
This month, for example, Turks.US provided its readers with details on a firm out of Spain - Immobiliaria Espacio - finalizing "... a $412 million mixed-use project which will be including office spaces, luxury condominiums, and a range of street-level retail spaces which will be located at 1400 Biscayne Boulevard in the Downtown Miami area."
The Spanish company's 12-story office building project just got the go-ahead to proceed from the Miami Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board earlier this month.
