Buying your first home, selling a piece of property, looking to invest in something new… We can help. Palmetto Realty is a Florida-native brokerage with extensive experience helping homeowners and investors, at every stage, make their next big move.
The first steps are often the most important steps. It is wise to begin by consulting your real estate agent so that they can point you in the right direction. While you start looking for your ideal home, you might also consider speaking with a mortgage lender about your finances and seeking to obtain a pre-approval.
There are many things that you can do to increase the value of your home. It’s important to know which investments land the biggest return and speaking with your real estate agent can be a good place to start. An experienced agent can help you identify which improvements to make and which are the most desirable in your local market. Other factors to consider may include the neighborhood, home size, mechanical life expectancy, and more.
The easiest way to receive an accurate evaluation of your home’s worth is to speak with a local real estate professional. Values and estimates provided by quick-surveys online are only estimates of your home’s worth. The most accurate opinion is going to come from an experienced realtor that is familiar with your local market and knows the right steps to take for an accurate appraisal.
There are several different avenues of real estate investing. Some include flipping homes, rental properties, raw land, commercial properties, and REITs. All can prove to be wise investments if done correctly. Figuring out which course of action is right for you is important, so be sure to consult an experienced real estate agent to help you weigh the pros and cons and begin the process.
There answer is yes….99% of the time. Real estate agents are associated with the MLS and have access to a large majority of homes that hit the market, usually before websites like Zillow show the listing. We recommend speaking with a qualified real estate agent in your area to set up alerts about new listings that match your preferences before they “go live”.
Every scenario will be different depending on each individual’s situation. The short answer is quite simple… Buy the land with a vacant land loan or cash. Then, meet with different builders and/or contractors to produce plans or select a model. Finally, obtain a new construction loan and sit back and watch your dream come to life. Consult a local Realtor to walk you through a step-by-step process.
