Why buy a real estate investment property now? The simple answer lies with the age old investment saying “buy low, sell high.” In the housing market, buying at the right time trumps selling at the right time. According to the Realtors ® Association of the Palm Beaches, South Florida home values have dropped 15.5% in the past year. Bristol Properties International provides investors an opportunity to take advantage of the current housing market.
 
Salvatore Sofia CRFA, LUTCF, Certified Retirement Financial Advisor and Realtor ® says, “All investments are tied to economic trends and are cyclical in nature. If we are at the bottom of the cycle there is generally one direction in which the market will go. Up. It is often recommended that real estate ownership as an investment is strategically part of a comprehensive diversified portfolio.”
 
Bristol Properties International has a team of professional real estate agents, trained to identify residential and commercial properties deemed undervalued and with a great probability of future appreciation. Bristol also has a system in place to expedite lender criteria and quickly close distressed properties, short sales and foreclosures. Without the right buy-in price, the sale of any investment loses its maximum value; therefore, purchase timing and price of the investment truly matter.
 
Mr. Sofia also says, “property ownership is one of the few ways to accumulate real wealth in our country. We have been endowed with many tax favors and strategically owning real estate properties have always been the fast track to financial security.” “An important reason that now is a great opportunity to invest in real estate is that properties that can easily be rented will provide a steady stream of monthly income, often covering associated property costs,” says Deborah Bacarella, Regional Manager for Bristol Properties International of Boca Raton.
 
These historically low real estate values present an investment opportunity. But as with any investment, you should seek the advice of your tax, legal or financial advisor to see if it’s appropriate for your own situation. Bristol Properties International has both the real estate professionals and financial professionals to assist in identifying value and opportunities in our present real estate market. Contact Us now to learn more about this great real estate investor opportunity.

A group of Bristol Associates recently attended a workshop on Realtor Safety at the Realtors ® Association of the Palm Beaches’ (RAPB) office. The keynote speaker was Andrew Wooten, an internationally acclaimed Safety and Security Consultant. Topics included personal safety in the home, office and car, child safety, social media safety concerns and identity theft prevention.
 
Bristol Agent, Helve Massakas, says that “one thing that particularly stuck in my mind when Andrew stated that cell phones were unsecured wireless devices! I was overwhelmed with the valuable information I was given that day.” Another Bristol Agent, Irene Durocher, said “Andrew Wooten made everyone aware how easy it is to be a victim, whether thru technology or just walking downs the street. The world is changing, you must be aware of your surroundings. He was a very motivational speaker and also shared self defense techniques with us.”
 
Andrew Wooten’s professional presentation was so anticipated that the event is now recorded into the Guinness Book of World Records. Bristol helps set world record for most participants in multiple locations attending a webinar, with 595 participants. Bristol Realtors ® Louise Morales and Laura Corwin also thankful to RAPB for the workshop information and are anxious to share what they learned with their customers.

A wise idiom states, “charity begins at home,” and that is the belief of Bristol Properties International and that is what the new Realtors ® Association of the Palm Beaches’ (RAPB) “Pay It Forward” fund is all about.
 
Bristol Properties International recognizes that the South Florida community is entrenched in a difficult housing economy, effecting homeowner and real estate professionals alike. The Pay It Forward Fund aims to gather donations from real estate professionals to help other Realtors ® in need. The charity’s motivation is to provide funds, supplies and services to Real Estate Agents, who are making a determined effort, yet are financially needy or otherwise distressed.
 
The Pay It Forward Fund’s unofficial mascot is a piggy bank. Bristol Realtors ® have made the conscious effort to take the pig with them to all open houses, professional meetings and proudly display their support. The little bank even made the trip to the Florida Realtors ® Convention in Orlando at the end of August.
 
Bristol invites individuals interested in donating to this worthy cause to stop by their Boca Raton office where you would get your picture taken and uploaded to Bristol’s Facebook page for your deed’s proper recognition. Others interested in donating through the mail or could send to The Pay It Forward Fund, c/o Bristol Properties International, 253 East Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33432. Please make checks payable to The Pay It Forward Fund. Contributions to the Pay It Forward Fund, 501(c) (3) charitable organizations, are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

According to Trulia, international buyers are taking advantage of real estate bargains in the United States, spending $41 billion on purchasing homes. Ten of the 24 most popular American cities for international buyers are in Florida. Last year, Europeans, Canadians and Brazilians reportedly spent $13 billion on homes in Florida alone, which is why Bristol targets international buyers.
 
Deborah Bacarella, Regional Manager for Bristol Properties International of Boca Raton, elaborates on where her customers have come from over her 30+ year career in Real Estate: “One of my customers who works for the United Nations, while serving in Jerusalem found me through a mutual friend from Jamaica who had recommended my services. We communicated via the internet until she could come to the States. The whole process only took 3 weeks to find and close on her peaceful new dream home. Other customers through the years have been from Israel, Liberia, Russia, South America, South Africa, Nairobi, France, England, Romania, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Netherlands and China.”
 
Current Florida Realtor statistics say 38% of the buyers are from out of the country. “It is amazing to me how easy it is now to communicate with buyers from all over the world” says Deborah Bacarella. International buyers are the focus for Bristol Properties’ team of experts, and the team of professional associates speaks fourteen languages, including Hebrew, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Greek, German, French, and Korean. With Bristol targeting international buyers, the company can ensure its sellers’ that their properties are receiving maximum exposure. For more information Contact Us.

“The Realtor you work with can be one of your most valuable resources whether buying or selling a home. What a bonus it is when your Realtor can also assist you in dislodging unwanted treasures to an eager buyer for extra cash” says Helve Massakas, Realtor Associate with Bristol Properties.
 
With property tax bills set to arrive at your home any day now, Bristol Properties International is utilizing its concierge approach to real estate to offer customers an innovative way to pay taxes.
 
Bristol Properties International recently was contacted by a past customer to discuss their property taxes. The customer was worried that they would have to tap into savings to cover the pending tax bill; however, a Bristol real estate professional introduced the customer to another line of service that separates Bristol from other real estate options. Bristol sold the customers artwork to pay the tax bill and for them to go on a summer vacation.
 
Bristol Properties sister company Bristol Trading Company offers a different kind of auction experience. Instead of holding bulk auctions at irregular intervals throughout the year, Bristol constantly auctions high-end valuables on an item-by-item basis. Bristol manages the entire sale process, from initial valuation to the issuance of your check. Simply bring your valuable items to a Bristol office or call to arrange a local pick-up, and turn your treasures to cash.
 
Bristol’s multitude of selling venues allows for a much more sophisticated means of locating eager buyers to ensure your highest returns. Bristol Trading Company specializes in marketing fine art, antiques, collectibles, silver, china, fine jewelry and watches – from a single consigned item to an entire estate; let Bristol turn your treasures to cash!
 
It is Bristol’s charge to efficiently and effectively sell our customers houses, and everything inside them. Contact Us to learn more.
