2019 Market Outlook for Lee County: What happened in 2018?

December 2018 statistically was a very bad month, 2018 statistically was a great year in spite of that.

Let’s talk about December 2018.

  • In my opinion, the stock market correcting was a few things:
    • Wall Street traders are/were reallocating for a cyclical bear market.
    • They did this because of Fed Bank rate hikes.
    • When the prime lending rate breaks 5.5%, we generally have a recession in 9 to 18 months.
    • Our leverage structure as a result of the aftermath of 2008 is different than in previous cycles.
  • High-Frequency trading went wild as a result.
  • The Plunge Protection Team got involved.

The drop in sales volume and sales counts is troubling. From media reports (we need to be skeptical of anything reported that has not been verified) this was a National “thing”.

2019 Market Outlook for Lee County: Sales by Year Built

There is a seesaw going on in the market between resales and new construction. Right now new construction is offering a quality product at a slightly higher price. From our experience, the consumer is recognizing the value and will to pay that premium.

In real estate, any market with less than 6 months is considered to be a “seller’s market”. When the inventory is over 6 months it is considered to be a “buyers market”.

2019 Market Outlook for Lee County: Distressed Market Update

The negative price pressure from the last cycle was driven by distressed sales. This was the aftermath of a mania. We prepare a report each month about this, here is a link to the December 2018 Lee County Florida foreclosure report.

December 2018 Lee County Florida foreclosure report Lis Pendens since 2018

A word of caution about listening to Real Estate Agents who speak on their production.

  • Most agents can not see past their own financial status.
  • There are a lot of agents right now. These are only Residential Sales in the MLS.

–7,088 Agents had at least a closing in Lee County for 2018.

–4,932 Agents had at least 2 closings in Lee County for 2018.

–1,143 Agents had at least 10 closings in Lee County for 2018.

–345 Agents had at least 20 closings in Lee County for 2018.

Trends to Watch:

  • 2018 was pretty awesome across the mean.

  • 3 months had more than 2,000 sales!

  • That may be hard to beat.

Is almost all of the new construction trading outside of MLS or do we truly lack inventory?

  • There are 153 homes with a year built 2017 and newer that are active as of 1/16/2019.
  • 843 have sold in the last 365 days.

2019 Market Outlook for Lee County: In Conclusion

    • 2018 was a great year from a statistical perspective.
    • It may be tough, just by the sheer numbers, to beat that year.
    • In 2016, all of the economic talking heads were calling for a recession 2 years out. In 2018, they were saying the same thing. At some point, it has to happen.
    • We have 2 different economic trends happening in real estate. The Baby Boomer generation retirement and the Millenial/Gen Z coming of age. Each will have different and specific impacts on the market.
    •  This market does not share the same modalities of the 2006 crash. If and when a correction happens, it will be different in intensity and duration. Using the last correction as a playbook can be problematic.
    •  December 2018 was pretty awful from a statistical point of view. January 2019 appears to be on the same path from a year over year perspective. Is this a trend or just the economy playing wait and see with the Macro pictures trials and tribulations?

Blockchain Technology for Real Estate can and will revolutionize real estate at some point in the near future. To be honest it is already beginning. Real estate is one of those industries that has been slow to adopt new technologies. It appears to be embracing Blockchain at a faster pace than normal.

Blockchain

is the brainchild of a person or group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. The initial launch of blockchain, as well as its platform, is now transformed into many things and applications.

“The blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value.”
Don & Alex Tapscott, authors Blockchain Revolution (2016)

Imagine a ledger that is backed up thousands of times across a network of computers. The network is constantly updating this as a well.No centralized version of this information exists to be stolen, hacked or corrupted.

Blockchain Technology for real estate has the ability to create platform and applications that are robust.

Blockchain Technology for real estate: Nobul.

Nobul is the peak of an international quest to evolve the experience of buying and selling. A modern fixture designed to disrupt, Nobul is setting a new standard in real estate.

It began from a passion to create an experience that both realtors and clients would want to have — a tool that would combine the easy, streamlined feeling of an all-in-one app done right; a place that would feel respectable to people seeking a new sense of real estate.

The Nobul experience is multi-faceted and immersive. A wide array of qualification tools means users can have the most powerful real estate experience in town without ever feeling vulnerable to misjudgment.

Both realtors and clients will be hard-pressed to find just one way that Nobul has changed the real estate game. They’ll also feel eager to get back in and play as soon as they can.

By flipping the script and opening a door to new possibilities, Nobul is redefining what buying and selling real estate means for everyone.

 Subject: Private real estate investors

 

Private real estate investors demystified.

Private real estate investors make money from renting, buying and selling real estate, most people will start by searching for information on the interwebs. That includes searching for mortgage information and potential properties. If you want to make huge profits or simply make a living in the property market, you will have to consider the factors that surround the real estate industry. Here are a few tips to start with.

Private real estate investors- Make a plan.

To be successful in the Real Estate Investing world, you have to start with the fundamental part – creating a plan. By failing to plan for every detail, you will end up losing some of your hard-earned money in the long term. Figure out the type of markets you want to invest in – such as commercial, single family homes or multi-family residences. A plan will make your work easier in the housing industry.

Private real estate investors- Engage a professional in the planning stage.

In addition to making the plan, you have to engage a professional in the planning part. Someone who has existed in the housing market world for many years will easily identify the key details you might be missing and guide you throughout the process. If you have already completed the planning stage, they will tell you whether the plan will work or not.

Private real estate investors – You should be ready to persevere when investing in the real estate world.

When investing in the real estate world, you should be ready to handle any unexpected scenario regardless of what happens in the long term. The process can be frustrating. With many deals falling out, most people end up leaving the whole process. Keep in mind that not everything is likely to go according to your plan and that happens to everyone. Do not give up.

Private real estate investors – Start small and expand your portfolio slowly.

When investing, you should be ready to start small and expand your portfolio slowly. That is what every professional will tell you. By investing in large projects, you will not have the experience to care for every deal. As an investor, you should be able to create a list of the tasks to accomplish each day. That way, you will avoid falling behind or missing out critical components.

Private real estate investors – Do anything you promise to do.

Your target customers will expect you to do anything that you promise to do, particularly in the housing industry. If you promise to buy a property, you should be ready to do that. That will provide you with more credibility in the housing market after you follow through anything that you tell people.

Private real estate investors – Arrive on time to the scheduled appointments

If you arrive late to any of your scheduled appointments with contractors, sellers, buyers or any other person, you will lose credibility faster. As an investor, you should always be the first person on the site because your business will be on the line. If you happen to arrive late, the people will not want to do any businesses with you in the future. You should respect the people you are dealing with each time.

When planning to invest in the real estate market, you should do more research relating to the mortgage rates before you jump into any housing market. Failure to develop a solid plan will result in a loss of money if the deal does not go how you had planned. Each investor goes to bed and wakes up thinking of the properties and deals they are planning to put together. If you are ready to start earning by buying and selling properties, you will have to sacrifice several things in your day-to-day life. That way you will succeed.

Private real estate investors – SWFL REIA is the place to be.

The SWFL REIA is a leading source of information relating to real estate and networking. SWFL REIA is different from the others in the real estate market in that they do not sell information products. They organize meetings that are rich in content to help investors share their experiences with others.

The organization has been gathering data relating to foreclosures and the housing market in addition to analyzing it. The analysis and the trend reporting are some of the factors that have made it an expert source of information for the media. It has also set standards on the trends and analysis of the housing markets.

The members are real estate agents, real estate investors, insurance agents, title agents, property managers, property owners, hedge fund managers, wholesalers, note buyers, rehabbers, bulk asset purchasers and probate investors.

How the SWFL REIA can benefit you when investing?

If you are a beginner in the real estate world, hanging out with the local investors will come with many benefits. SWFL REIA meetings cover important topics such as distressed properties, natural disasters effects on property investments and the best way to maximize your profits in the investment world.

Anyone can register to become a member as a couple, individual, or corporation. After becoming a member, you will open doors to more networking opportunities, advice from members with many years of experience, more investment ideas from the members with many years of experience in addition to many deals and contracts completed in the meeting rooms.

Even though you should not expect to get rich overnight after investing in the real estate industry, real estate is a preferred method of investing because it will provide good returns in the long term and cushion you from inflation. However, you will need more money to start making money.

Private real estate investors – Conclusion.

You can buy your first real estate property in various ways. You can use debt financing by taking a mortgage. Use of debts has been attracting most real estate investors because it allows them to buy properties that they could not otherwise afford. But before going for any debts, you should keep in mind that it can be dangerous. In the failing markets, regular payments and interest expense can drive you into bankruptcy if you are not careful.

The key difference between rental properties and other types of investment in the work and time you will have to devote to maintaining the property investment. If you buy stock, it will rest in the account of your broker and increase or lose value. Property investment will come with many responsibilities.

Airbnb-powered apartment complex

Based on the success of AIRBNB Real Estate Investing an Airbnb-powered apartment complex seems to be a logical next step. That is happening throughout the country now.

The financial benefits of operating short-term rentals are appealing to certain real estate investors, but also to professional or institutionalized property investors. A hybrid operation of some annual and some short term makes sense for bigger apartment complexes in the right locations.

Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Newgard Development Group.

Airbnb announced a $200 million investment to bring the home-sharing company’s branded apartment project to cities across the U.S. Miami-based Newgard Development Group is partnering with Airbnb to do this. Niido, a 324-unit building just outside of Orlando in Kissimmee, will feature hotel-like amenities and encourage tenants to sublease their spaces online. In a Niido Powered by Airbnb building, tenants are encouraged to rent out their units on Airbnb and, in return, their landlord  (Niido/Newgard) collects a 25 percent commission whenever they short term lease their unit. Like most new concepts in the economy, they have encountered some friction along the way. To make a historical point, a lot of people were against the motor car versus horses.

Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Niido Nashville.

Niido Nashville features resort-style services and amenities including an on-site MasterHost, resort-style pool, and much more.

 

Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Niido Orlando.

Niido Orlando is built on 12 acres, it was the first Niido Powered by Airbnb community, it includes 324 luxury apartment homes. Niido Orlando is located minutes from Disney World.

Airbnb-powered apartment complex: Management challenges.

  • Insurance, what coverage do I need?
  • Managing bad reviews.
  • Housekeeping and clean up.
  • Systems and protocols for demanding guests.
  • Finding the property software to manage Short Term Rentals
  • Maintaining an accurate and synchronized calendar.
  • Understanding and complying with local regulations and collection of the required taxes.

AIRBNB Real Estate Investing

AIRBNB Real Estate Investing is increasingly becoming a topic of discussion at SWFL REIA meetings. 

While this is a new addition for real estate investing. You must be mindful to still ground yourself in the basics and not reach for an asset because of this “new” way to gain tenants.

AIRBNB Real Estate Investing: Location, Location, Location.

The mantra “location, location, location” is even truer in short-term vacation rental ownership. Certain areas attract long-term renters, certain areas attract short-term renters. Short Term rentals are popular with tourists and as atourist destination.

AIRBNB Real Estate Investing: Examine the local ordinances and rules.

Lee County and the State of Florida collect taxes on short-term rentals. Short-term rentals are defined by the Florida Department of Revenue as periods less than 185 consecutive days or six calendar months, whichever is less.

Make sure you:

  • Register with the appropriate government agencies.
  • Collect sales tax from short-term renters. sales tax is collected from guests upon payment. However, the Florida Department of Revenue places the legal responsibility for this tax revenue squarely on the shoulders of the host. Failure to collect tax from guests means the host will need to pay the tax or recoup the tax revenue from the guests.
  • File sales tax returns. Failure to file Florida state and local sales tax returns on time may result in late fees, interest payments, and in extreme cases, legal action.
  • Most local governments have laws specifying how a home can be used. Before renting out your home, be sure to review city zoning and planning codes.
  • Homeowner Associations (HOA) located in Florida may have specific rules regarding vacation rentals as dictated in the Home or Condo Association documents.

AIRBNB Real Estate Investing: Make sure the property works as a long-term rental as well.

This is critical because the business ebbs and flows, and consumer demand could change. Hedging yourself against market changes is important. The only constant for Real Estate Investing in change.
