Investing in Real Estate: Post Bubble

By: Jeremy Sposato

For many years the United States saw growth in the real estate market unlike anything anyone had ever experienced. There was a flood of homes being constructed in cities around the county and there were buyers scrambling to purchase homes even before they were completed. Now, in some area that real estate bubble has burst and these areas are seeing a decline in the number of people buying homes. In some places the price of homes is even gravitating downwards, what does this mean for real estate investors? It means a great chance to pick up properties at great prices. It also means that the properties that an investor does own in areas where the industry is still going strong like Tampa Bay may see their values increasing. To say that the bubble has completely burst is jumping the gun a bit.

but the market has cooled off. During this time great deals can be found on properties around the country as sellers who built and listed while the market was still hot might be getting itchy to sell.

As mentioned before, there are still certain areas of the country where the real estate industry is still booming. Places like Tampa Bay that offer great work and business environments and the surety of continued growth and prosperity well into the future are still popular spots and are seeing an actual increase in home prices and buyer interest. finding an area such as this is a golden opportunity for investors with available money as it is easy to pick up properties due to the relatively low housing cost in Tampa. The environment is great for home renting as the thriving work force here needs quality housing and that is a need which will also increase as Tampa's number of jobs is increasing every year.

Vacation rentals is another good thing to look at if considering purchasing a home almost anywhere in Florida. The nice thing about vacation rentals is they tend to pay for themselves over time and the owner gets the bonus of equity from the deal. If you are able to find one of these markets, it is worth the money to by into it now while prices are still fairly low as it won't be too long before those prices start to climb.
