Before submitting or responding to any offers, I conduct an in-depth investment analysis. For each potential investment, I build institutional quality pro forma  outlining different scenarios to predict outcomes in different market cycles.

Analyze
Before submitting or responding to any offers on the table, I conduct a full in-depth investment analysis. Property analysis is where the real digging begins. It is where I can use real data on properties and their owners to turn your speculation into certainty.


The four things I am looking for in their property analysis are numbers, narratives, indications, and assurance.

Numbers are the gritty details of a property—the years, dates, prices, and measurements associated with it.
Narratives are the stories and history behind a property. 
Indications are the signals that point to a property owner’s intentions or potential actions. 
Assurance is essentially validation that a property is worth pursuing, and is a valuable use of time. Assurance is based on finding the right numbers, narratives, and indications tied to a property.

Close
I will be part of each investment transaction, providing the knowledge and negotiation expertise needed to get a deal done. I will link you with the proper legal, tax advisory, and financial teams to ensure that each part of the transaction is well-structured and executed in a timely manner.

Learn
In deciding where to locate your business, whether a flagship or a first location, every Real Estate Professional will tell you finding the right location is the most important aspect. The research phase is a critical component to both my success and my clients’ success.

The first step is to understand my clients’ businesses inside and out. I learn who my customers are, how they make decisions, and how the environment impacts their decision-making process.

Teach
Knowledge is power, and sharing that knowledge is my second step. Educating my clients on the current real estate market, its trends, and the calculated projections, is a critical factor to the success of each deal. After understanding their business, I conduct an in-depth analysis of potential locations, from foot traffic to demographics, all of which play a role in helping you decide where to sign your next lease.

When negotiating real estate deals, experience matters. Understand
You have a business plan that needs to be executed, preferred returns that need to be met, and an asset that needs to be stabilized.

Strategize
After the  research phase, I perform a robust financial and operational analysis to develop specific short- and long-term goals, identify decision points, and establish forecasts to maximize your returns while staying competitive in current market conditions. During the strategy phase, I will recommend different pricing models, define our target customers, and identify the best ways to act on your current business plan.

In a crowded arena, marketing and branding play a major role when attempting to catch our target customers’ attention. From creative discovery to design and development, I partner with some of the top creative agencies in Florida to provide our clients with an end-to-end solution for marketing and branding their estate assets.

International Buyers


What Foreign Nationals Need To Know About Buying Florida Real Estate


According to the National Association of Realtors, Florida has the largest number of foreign real estate investors in the U.S., with 41% purchasing vacation homes, 25% making a dual use purchase (vacation home/rental property) and 23% investing in rental property 

Florida real estate has always been attractive to foreign buyers, even before the housing crash that depressed prices for both residential and commercial real estate and made foreign investment in Florida real estate a bargain for many buyers.


  • Foreign nationals are able to purchase real estate in the U.S. for personal use, either in their own names or the name of a corporation or LLC. However, when it comes to selling U.S. property, foreign nationals or entities must adhere to certain rules under the Foreign Investment in Real Property Act (“FIRPTA”). 

    • Under FIRPTA, any profits made from the sale of U.S. property by a foreign national are subject to taxation. There are three exceptions that would exempt the sale from taxation:
              
      • If the seller is a resident alien and has a tax identification number; 
      • If the sale price is less than $300,000 and the buyer will use the property as a personal residence at least 50% of the time for the next two years after     closing; or 
      • If the seller has obtained a withholding certificate from the IRS.


    If none of these exemptions apply, the buyer (or buyer’s closing agent) must withhold 10% of the sale price to pay to the IRS.

    Foreign investors are also entitled to defer capital gains taxes in the U.S. by purchasing another investment property under Section 1031 of the IRS Code. The actual tax treatment of foreign real estate buyers may depend on any existing tax treaties between the U.S. and their home countries. This can be a complicated area, which is why it is advisable for foreign investors to consult with an experienced Florida real estate attorney.

    Investment Property
    Under the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act, foreign nationals purchasing large tracts of real estate in the U.S. must report that purchase to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

    The information that must be reported includes the names and addresses of buyers, sellers and owners of more than a 50% interest, and financing information (income, expenses, etc.) about the property. More reporting details are required for property over 200 acres or property with a purchase price of more than $1 million.

    Rental Property
    Foreign nationals purchasing Florida real estate for leasing purposes are subject to taxation on rental income. Foreign landlords have a choice on how to be taxed:

    Pay 30% of gross rental receipts; or
    Pay regular U.S. income tax rates on net income from the property by filing a Form 4224 with the IRS.


    Florida Requirements
    Florida has certain filing requirements for foreign nationals and legal entities purchasing real estate here. Any property owned by a foreign business entity or U.S. corporation whose ownership by foreign nationals exceeds 10% must have a registered Florida office and agent on file with the Florida Department of State. If the sales tax on rents is collected, a foreign national must register as a sales tax dealer with the Florida Department of Revenue.

    Business Immigration


    The need for Business Immigration becomes more common every day, especially in Florida. With advanced technology, the earth becomes more accessible and transportation between countries becomes everyday business.

    The United States Citizen Immigration Services, or the USCIS, controls the issuance and classification of visas, so anyone from another country coming  to Florida must obtain classification from the USCIS.

    The visa classifications are based on the time and work that is to be accomplished in the United States, and all employment based visas are not designed for the same purpose. Some are to work only, while others are permitted to establish businesses or invest, and the time permitted for each classification will vary.

    In order to ensure that you have the correct visa classification, one of our immigration attorneys will talk with you about the purpose for the visa, and we will work together to provide the correct classification. Here are the several of the most common options including a short description.

    E-2 Visa

    The E-2 Visa is for a treaty investors who are seeking entry to the U.S. to develop and direct the operations of a business in which the investor has invested (or is in the process of investing) a substantial amount of capital.

    L-1 Visa
    The L-1 Visa classification also enables a foreign company which does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send an executive or manager to the United States with the purpose of establishing one.

    EB-5 Visa
    USCIS administers the Immigrant Investor Program, also known as “EB-5,” created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors.
