New customer buys investment property in Florida

For Chris Leaver – Head of Property Investor Supermarket USA

Hi Chris

I have never done this before, but felt compelled to send you a note of thanks for the unbelievable level of service your company provided in sourcing a property in Florida, for me.

Your attention to detail, understanding of my requirements and network of specialists was superb.

Without your expertise, this project would have failed at an early stage.

I will always be grateful.

My regards to you and your family, and to Valerie out in Florida

Friday 18th May 2012 recommends Girasol Homes

Girasol homes are reassuringly different to many other agents we work with. Their touring staff do not put pressure on our clients and they work very hard to try their best to meet the buyers preferences before taking the people out to view.

Their front end staff are all experienced, understanding professionals, and combined with their comprehensive property portfolio, the result is we are now quite used to our clients having nothing but praise for the level of service provided by Nigel and his teams.

Their business model often means they are able to find suitable properties for clients, when other agents have been unsuccessful. We would recommend Girasol and Nigel Salmon and look forward to a long and fruitful business relationship continuing.

Buy at the Courthouse with our local experts in Florida

Buy at the Courthouse with our local experts in Florida –

Buying at the Courthouse – a new service we launched for our investors in 2011

Working in conjunction with our local team of experts, we can offer a bespoke bidding and buying service for clients dedicated to buying property that has been put up for sale in the American courts. Through the bidding process many properties are available for significantly lower prices than expected, meaning knowledgeable investors can turn a profit quickly, while holiday makers can find an ideal second-home in the US for a discount price.

How does this happen?

Due to the recent financial crisis to hit the USA, many properties have been put up for auction through the courthouse system, in order to secure a fast sale. With the necessity to secure sales, a lot of the properties are auctioned off for significantly less than their actual worth.

As the US economy emerges from recession, these auctioned properties have the capacity to increase in value, and dedicated investors can capitalise on their bargain bid and make a strong profit in a matter of months.

For example last year: On the 30th of July 2010, a property was auctioned off for $154,000, by the 15th of October 2010, it was sold for $202,000. A gross profit of nearly $50,000 in three months demonstrates the significant potential for lucrative investments.

But this service is not just for the real estate investors. People who holiday or work a lot in the States, or just wish to have a second home abroad, can capitalise on the bargains available through the foreclosure court system, and find a suitable property for a moderate price.

How does our service work for you?

Working with Terence Hawkins who heads up our locally based team, we help establish a service tailored to your requirements. By establishing a property wish-list and budget, Terence will research and locate a selection of properties that match your criteria. Once finalised, Terence and his team will bid on your behalf at the courthouse for the properties you want; if the winning bid is yours, then the property is yours.

It is as straightforward as that.

As Terence puts it: “Tell us what you want and we’ll find and buy it at the courthouse; saving you thousands of dollars off the current market value”

For Serious Buyers

One thing to keep in mind; this is a very secure service but requires dedication from the buyer. Payment for the property is needed to in full and on the day via cheque from a US bank account (this can be set up via our team). There is a buyers fee that is a % of the property purchase price that is payable to the local team as well.

If you are interested in our latest bespoke property buying service then get in contact with us as soon as possible and register for the lots that are sold at the Court every day (free service) and take a look at our rolling results list to see some of the recent deals that have been secured in the courthouse. Your ideal property could just be a bid away.
