The market is very tight right now in Central Florida: inventory is very low. A lot of investors have been working in the market for several years, including large private equity companies, and they have gobbled up a lot of the inventory.

My suggestion would be to work with a real estate professional who can help you decide which areas to focus on. They can also set up a report to send you daily results of any new prospects that hit the market meeting your criteria. You will have to be prepared to act quickly as investment properties are not staying on the market for long.

I work with a network of real estate professionals and if we can be of any assistance, feel free to go to my web site: www.ParkPlaceConnects.com/jsestito

Here is a quote of Alex Cohen, Lead Commercial Specialist at Core.

“Like many who have enjoyed vacationing in Miami, I was initially drawn to consider buying Miami Beach condominiums as investment about two and a half years ago. However, through assessing condo pricing and condo rents, I quickly discovered that likely returns would be 4% or less. Instead I chose to invest in a unique neighborhood just north of Miami’s hot “design district” called Buena Vista filled with modest single family homes built mostly in the 1930s and 1940s. In Buena Vista, I found and invested in homes that generate for me returns from year-round renters between 5.5 and 8 percent because they make 2-3 bedrooms homes on small lots accessible, particularly to millennial renters, at rents equivalent to what they would pay for a Miami Beach studio or small one bedroom apartment.”

I'm not sure about Miami, but if it's still actual for you go to the link below.

Hi Ryan, I'm guessing some of those posts were mine as I have been writing about the tourist areas since 2009 when this forum started to get really active. My thoughts have certainly changed over the years as I got more experience and more feedback from my buyers. Best really comes down to each buyers particular goals and objectives. If your own usage for family vacations is part of the equation, then best will be determined by what you want to do on vacation and what your budget is. If you want to get into the short term rental business and take bookings yourself, then best ROI will be determined on location and how good your internet marketing is. All my investors who have gotten into the short term rental business have gone for Windsor Hills and I have several who own multiple properties there. It is the place to make money in STR.
Do check out my references right here on Trulia. Quite a few were written by buyers of short term rental properties. Feel free to contact me directly, happy to help you out, too.

Definitely remodel the kitchen and you can easily increase your rent. Hoboken is about a 15 / 20 min. train ride to Manhattan and anybody will pay a higher rent to live there because your increased rent is still about 1/2 of what is being charged in Manhattan & Brooklyn. Are you kidding me? ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
Assessed value are what property taxes are based on. They often do not reflect market value. Some towns base them on a percentage of value. Some at only 90% while other set their assessed value at say 110%. Any good agent can complete a bpo and tell you what the property is worth in todays market to know if it is a deal ... more
