Realtors in West Palm Beach Florida are up beat about the prospects as far valuations are concerned as 2018 gets going.
There are a number of reasons for this – besides the undoubted lifestyle benefits of living in this sought after area. The first of these is the ascending value of the U.S. dollar when compared to other currencies. The strong dollar has led to a slight decline in interest from buyers in places like Canada – but there are other pockets of investors who are still tremendously interested in investment properties in West Palm Beach.
There is also the fact that more housing stock is entering the market with many owners seeking to capitalize on what many regard as peak pricing. This means that – in lock step with the laws of supply and demand that there is greater competition to find qualified buyers and that means that in essence it becomes a buyers market. This spells opportunity for those who are either looking to relocate to West Palm Beach or are looking for an investment property in this vibrant market.
Of course there is the aforementioned lifestyle attraction of West Palm Beach. Coastal property values have proven to be among the most resilient in the U.S. market – even bouncing back very rapidly after natural disasters.
There’s also the fact that financial institutions are becoming more selective in providing funding for new condo developments, a fact that is bound to fuel scarcity in the medium term. An investment today could offer extremely attractive returns in the medium term and especially for those who want to hold onto a property asset over the longer period.
This may very well be the time for investors to look very carefully at the opportunities in this coastal community.
