Florida Housing Real Estate Market Slump means BARGAINS for Canadians
Published in Toronto in October, 2008 – There is a glittering silver lining to those gray clouds over the Florida residential housing real estate market. Canadians dreaming of owning a winter home or vacation property in the sunshine state of Florida real estate can now pick up properties at prices as much as 50% below what homes, townhouses and condominiums were selling in 2005. “it is absolutely the best time to make that buy decision,” says Phil C., President of Toronto Based Florida Home Finders of Canada Inc. “Canadians who have been relatively unscathed by the residential meltdown that has taken place all through the United States, are perfectly positioned to buy second homes in Florida real estate market at prices less than half o what they would pay in the GTA.” He points out that with Florida condo prices averaging less than $225 US per square foot in the Florida real estate market, versus $428 in the GTA, Florida winter homes are now within reach of a very large number of Canadian Families. “In effect, the number of Florida foreclosures now in the hands of Florida banks and the number of unsold development real estate projects have driven prices to the lowest point they have been in the past decade or more,” he says. “Moreover, banks in Florida do have money available for qualified Canadians buyers. In many cases, they will lend up to 70% of the price of a home in the form of a first mortgage at interest rates, which are just one point above those prevalent here.” Last year, Canadians took advantage of those Florida real estate prices – as low as $150,000 US for a one bedroom Florida condominium – to snap up about 56,000 properties, he points out. Florida Home Finders of Canada has been licensed to sell Florida real estate since 1989 and since then has helped 15,000 Canadians find winter homes, he says. Earlier this year, however, at the urging of a group of major Florida banks and a large number of Florida real estate developers, the Florida Home Finder of Canada organization struck an agreement to represent them in Southern Ontario. “they notified us weekly of new properties available for sale and we then track location, size, type, selling prices plus any extras or amenities,” he says. “Some properties, for example, come fully furnished in a move-in ready state. Many are in new Florida beach-front or beach view projects or recent condo conversions. They offer wonderful opportunities such as one bedroom suites of up to 850 square feet – almost twice the size of a one bedroom in downtown Toronto – plus amenities such as swimming pools and fitness centres.”

More about the Florida Home Finders of Canada (FHFC) Services
Where in the past Florida Home Finders of Canada’s main focus was on the Miami real estate area in southeast Florida and State West and East Florida, south of Sarasota on the Gulf Coast, the partnership with banks and Florida real estate developers has extended the Florida Home Finders of Canada’s reach through the entire state of Florida real estate now. “We have access to properties from the panhandle to the Keys. They include not just condos of all sizes but also town homes and detached homes as well.” Florida Home Finders of Canada is also able to do custom searches for Canadian clients. “Prospective Florida home buyers from Canada can name their price range, the area they are interested in and things like proximity to beaches, shopping and attractions such as Disneyworld, the Daytona raceways, Busch Gardens or marinas and we can search the database for properties that suit those criteria.” The Florida Home Finders of Canada FHF can then go further by identifying specific Florida housing types and sizes within that price range given by Canadians home buyers. Florida Home Finders of Canada will also help educate and advise Canadians clients about owning and maintaining their new sunshine home. “We can not only help with the purchase in areas such as arranging mortgages and finding title insurance companies to handle closings but we can also suggest Florida property management companies should they wish to rent out to third parties for part of the year to help cover costs, recommend Florida insurance brokers to handle things like flood insurance and hurricane insurance. “We can take the stress and complexity out of finding the perfect sunshine home,” he adds.
