USA Housing Market Update – CoreLogic July Home Price Index Rises 3.8 Percent Year-Over-Year—Biggest Increase Since 2006
Great link thank you, funny i twittered this data just this morning. The time to invest in the US market is NOW.
We deal with Florida – our focus is Orlando, Tampa and Fort Myers. We focus on foreclosures, but the prices are rising fast.
Thanks Steve, which brokerage are you affiliated with?
Yes Cheeves remember we corresponded back in May after your name was recommended twice, and you mentioned to me at the time that you don t cover miami : ) so after working in RE for the past 2 years and doing my own projects i ended up getting my license as there is clearly a need for it here.
BMH & Mary I'm available to answer your Q's in Miami if you happen to swing by. I'm an investor/licensed real estate agent with local networks from Miami to Palm Beach Counties. Please bring some Vegemite! : P
Thanks for your comments Cheeves! There are 60 in total and there is just small number available (6) by the one investor who bought them low and has held them for cash flow for several years, so not plenty of inventory. Oh yes thorough HOA due diligence is a must. A client of mine was keen to purchase in a building near my home; I warned him that…[Read more]
Never an issue with xe.com. On the Australian side I have been asked to verify my identity a number of times as the amounts and the frequency of funds transferred increased, I think this was due to Australian money laundering regulations.
Hello Cheeves, let me know what you think of the following scenario; I am learning every day and would appreciate your feedback:

I like http://www.city-data.com and http://www.usatoday.com/news/census/index also http://www.findcompsnow.com but all to be taken with a grain of salt, as unlike Australia in the USA one street can be "Wisteria Lane" but the next can be a ghetto. The aggregated data models can't differentiate very well, so it is essential to have ears and eyes on the…
TZ replied to the topic Newbie question – which US bank to open an account with? in the forum Overseas Deals 11 years, 6 months ago
When I was in Jacksonville, Florida, a few months ago I bought a house. Thought I'd better open a bank account. Went to 2 banks and was told I couldn't do it. So I gave up. We bought the house in a land trust, which I never hear anyone talking about. Everyone seems to buy in an LLC. I don't really know all the pros and cons of all…[Read more]
Cool..It seems tourism has suffered a lot on the coast and real estate too as a result, nothing beats the lifestyle though.. I miss walking in the rain forest at Buderim forest park with my kids and swimming under the waterfall..

So much talk about how USA or Australian real estate groups are marking up the properties that we buy. So I can't speak for others, but I will speak for my company on how and why we do what we do.

Emma what type of work do you do in the worst zips on all nighters? Or do you mean when you’re in the country you return to your place of work / temporary residence after all nighters? Either way it sounds like excitement..
