POPULATION GROWTH IN FLORIDA has been booming lately. According to recently released census data, Florida has seen its total population grow by 14.6% over the last decade, nearly double the growth rate of the United States.

The thousands of people streaming into Florida are putting pressure on housing prices. The Florida Realtors association reports that the statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes is $375,000, up 23% from the previous year.

With the increasing demand for real estate and rising prices across the state, many people have turned to construction loans to finance the building of new homes. If you’re going to spend a lot of money on a house, you might as well purchase a lot and build a custom dream home, right?

When someone decides to build a new dream home, one of the first things they start exploring are construction loans, which are a little different from conventional mortgages when you’re purchasing an existing home.

As you research, you’ll soon find that construction loans have different rules and qualifying criteria. The nightmare scenario to avoid is one where you’ve committed to purchasing a lot but end up struggling to find a construction loan.

Fortunately, there are loan officers that specialize in construction loans. They have years of experience working with underwriters to make sure you navigate the application, pre-approval, and closing process. 

If you’re a homebuyer looking for a construction loan specialist, we can quickly connect you with several options customized to your specific needs so that you can make the best decision for you

Benefits of a new a construction loan in Florida

Construction loans are short-term financing that are used to cover the cost of building a house from start to finish. Construction loans can cover the costs of buying land, working with an architect to draft plans, permit fees, and the labor and materials necessary to complete the house.

Because construction loans aren’t secured by a completed house, the approval process for a borrower can be more complex than for a traditional mortgage. Your lender will likely want to be more involved in the process of understanding the construction timeline, budget, plans and your personal financial situation before approving the loan.

The other important thing to consider is that home construction loans aren’t distributed as a lump sum. Instead, your lender will distribute money to you through a series of installment payments as the states of the construction are completed.

The benefit of a construction loan is that you’ll typically only be required to pay the interest on the funds as they are drawn. You won’t need to make the principal payments until you complete construction. Your lender will probably have an option to convert your construction loan into a typical mortgage at the end of the construction process.

Does a Florida construction loan make sense for you?

Getting a construction loan in Florida comes with huge benefits and very little downside. You’ll likely be able to make interest only payments during the construction phase, which makes your monthly payment  affordable as an existing homeowner since you’ll be making mortgage payments on your current home until the new construction is complete.

The challenges of a construction loan in Florida are that you’ll find the process different from a typical mortgage, which is why we recommend working with a loan officer that specializes in construction loans. At the end of the day, you’re going to want someone who has extensive experience doing nothing but construction loans day in and day out.

If you have an interest we can help you select a property that will fit the home you want to build and we can connect you with a professional experienced lender to assist you in the process. Our extensive network of realtors and architects are available all over Florida. Give us a call or send an email to learn more.

Saint Petersburg Florida

How is St. Petersburg Different?

  Saint Petersburg has so much to offer that other Florida cities and towns are missing.

  Yes there are white sand beaches with turquoise waters, amazing sunsets and sunrises across the bay. Yes there are tiki bars and live music almost everywhere along with outdoor seating. There are dog friendly bars and a dog martini bar, outdoor sports, concerts, so much to do all year long and everynight. 

  What you might not know is besides your beach town activities there are also choices for fine upscale dining, theater, museum, art and everything you would expect from a large city. What is missing in St. Petersburg can be found 20 minutes away in Tampa. Location, Location, Location.

With interest rates hopefully coming down, a cooling economy, Saint Petersburg continues to sell homes. The map above shows what single family homes sold in the last 7 and 90 days from today 12/12/23 (note this does not include condos or lot sales). 

Downtown Vibe

  You are always walking distance to numerous restaurants and nightlife, Straub Park with its ancient Banyan trees, the Pier, Central Ave, Beach Drive, plenty of hotels and parking. Scooter rentals, electric bike rentals, major league baseball, Dali Museum, Mahaffey Theater, Vinoy Golf Course, and all this just 20 minutes from beautiful white sandy beaches.

   Unique to St. Petersburg is the upscale neighborhoods on Tampa Bay. Snell Isle, Old NorthEast, Shore Acres, and many others all within 2-3 minutes of downtown and still 20 minutes away from the beaches. 

  Naples has a vibrant downtown full of shops and restaurants and upscale neighborhoods with entry pricing in the mid $20M for new construction. 

   The other Gulf coast towns have exquisite beach front homes and neighborhoods but all lack a vibrant downtown with choices. 

  Saint Petersburg has more to offer than the other towns plus much more. You are 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport, 30 minutes from Raymond James Stadium for football and concerts, 2.25 hours from Naples and 3.5 hours from Miami. New homes in St. Petersburg start at $278K in south St. Petersburg and go up to $13M in Snell Isle. St. Petersburg has options for all and that is what makes it special. If you appreciate the laid back feel from being near the beach but also like to go out and have a great dinner with a nice bottle of wine, everything is available in St. Petersburg and that is why I feel it is undervalued today.

How to hire a Remodeling Contractor

Remodeling in Pinellas County

  New Kitchen or Bathroom is very important to you and your Family. The added space or versatility in use or just updating the design to something current requires selecting a licensed contractor to do the work. 

  There are many steps in the process and everyone wants to save money. What typically happens is the cheapest path becomes the most expensive and sometimes never completed.  Horror story after horror story, clients have paid contractors more than 50% + of the contract and no or little work is completed in place. 

  Make sure you have answers to these questions in writing: 

  • What precisely is the scope of work?

  • How long will the work take overall?

  • What are the work hours/days?

  • Will I be out of a Kitchen for 2 weeks or 9 months?

  • What happens if the project takes a year?

  • What happens if you did not add work but the Contractor wants more money?

  • Who is responsible for managing the subcontractors? 

  • Is the contractor capitalized to operate business?

  Typical issues

  Google Reviews, There are companies you can hire to create multiple positive Google reviews. Companies with lots of positive reviews are not safe from being bad companies. But there is a way to vet the reviews to help pick good from bad. Read the reviews and you will start to see who the company truly is. You can tell the fake ones from real, the anger from clients and the absurdity from the contractors responses. 

Screenshot 2023 10 30 at 7.33.03 AM
Summary Sheet of New Home Cost

Renovation in Naples

If you follow these steps you will reduce a bad experience.

  1. Read the reviews and responses.

  2. Stay away from narcissistic responses from the contractor.

  3. Meet face to face with the contractor and go over the work ask about all details.

  4. Review the estimate provided by the contractor beyond the price, look for details= product description, qty, cost. 

  5. Ask for written language of time duration and how will the work be managed.

  6. Ask for missing details to be added.

  7. Define what you are expected to do and what you expect from them.

  8. Add language for delays. 


  Selecting the contractor because they provided the lower cost doesn’t mean that is the real cost. I have seen this numerous times over the years, clients pick the lower cost.

  Now what?

  The number was wrong, the contractor did not include 1/2 the work and you find out when you are to far in. You signed a contract that has no finish details but pages of how you cannot give a bad review or negative press. 

  If you have no details explaining what is included in your project then do not hire the contractor, this is true for Plumbing, Electrical, HVAC, Roofing, or General Contracting, Lawn Mowing, Car Repair, etc. 

Screenshot 2023 06 18 at 7.16.37 AM

Contractor not showing up

Above we discussed how to avoid a bad situation, but what if you are already in one?

Here are some things you need to know.

  1. Confront your contractor and request a completion schedule in writing, make sure you paper all interactions going forward.

  2. Request a list of who and what was paid to date along with signed, notarized lien waivers. 

  3. The lien waivers are proof of payment and you need to know who was paid and how much by your contractor.

  4. Regardless of how much you paid your contractor, if the subcontractors were not paid they can legally (within 90 days) lien your home and foreclose on your property.  

  5. The state of Florida is very difficult to obtain a contractor license. You can use this as leverage, all contractors are out of business without a license. Report your contractor, it is a class one felony to take a clients payment and use the funds for anything outside of the clients project. 

  6. Threaten a lawsuit and hire an attorney. Most likely you have paid for the majority of the work and nothing or hardly anything is completed on site. Hire an attorney and go after the liability insurance the contractor has, also you can go after the state for allowing this person to operate. If this has happened to you there is a very high probability there are many more clients in the same situation, find them and share the cost. 

  7. If you have come to terms, sign a new amendment to go with your original contract. Be certain to have an agreed completion date, cost to complete, timeline and penalty for delays,  all missing details of what is included, and all lien waivers that match your overall payments to date and request lien waivers for all future payments.   

  If you are in a bad situation with your current contractor we can help you by providing you with a real cost to complete the work. This can be used to collect the overpayments you have made to your contractor. We can also work for you as an owners rep and help manage your contractor to complete the work at or near the contract price if possible. 

New Bathroom or Kitchen

If you want to remodel your home please contact Iridium Development Inc. We provide free transparent estimates that are detailed. Our contracts are detailed as well and we use industry standard AIA contracts. During the construction process, we provide our clients with login portals to view who we paid and how much we paid each vendor and sub.

How to Build a Spec House Part II

cropped Screenshot 2023 06 20 at 10.55.37 AM

House Design

 On How to Build a Spec House Part I we discussed the math behind selecting the property and sale price. Part II we will go over the house design and how to deliver a product better than your competitors. 

  When you know your targeted market and house size, now you need to design the home you are going to build. Many people think you can have a house design before you have a property in mind and that is not true. 

  Select the house to fit the lot, do not select any house for any lot. An example can be a rear downhill sloping lot, if you select a home that is deep without a basement then you need to build the grade up at the rear of the home to compensate for the lot slope.  This can be extremely expensive and usually when you need fill it is not available. For a down sloping rear lot a home with a walkout lower level is best. Just like a home with one story fits a flat lot perfectly. An uphill lot fits a house with a garage under to cut the vertical angle of the driveway and so on. You need to select something that works with the contours of the land and not against them.   

  Finishes and design are dictated by the comps of your market space. The sales prices dictate what you have to spend and the room for your profit. Colonial style homes have minimal wasted space so the cost per foot is less than something with more angles. Sometimes a home with more angles elevates the design style and sales price so it may be the best fit for your comps. You want to provide a great flowing usable lay out. Family space along with work space as in the Kitchen. Have you ever tried to cook in a Kitchen where the range is sandwiched in a brick or tile alcove?  They provided 6″ of counter for fire protection on each side, it looks nice but really is not suitable for cooking. 

Screenshot 2023 10 09 at 9.27.52 AM

House Selection

  Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and make sure your design is family friendly. You also need to design something that works with the budget. Most colonial style homes use square or rectangle layouts that have usable space, some houses with curved rooms have wasted space that incurs cost to build. True Modern homes are minimal, many designers say they are cheaper to build. I have found that is not true, they are beautiful and I love them but typically there are flush beams that limit wires, HVAC, plumbing pipes causing higher install cost. Larger windows are also expensive and especially in hurricane prone areas. 

  Before going to far in design start working your math to make sure you do not over design or over spend on professional fees for a house that blows your budget.   

Screenshot 2023 10 09 at 9.36.54 AM

You have to Give to Get

  If you build it do they come? That is only in the movies, you need to give to get and finishes are where the give is. Fancy paint colors, design fads, these are items to stay away. Working in the Northeast you see design styles earlier than you see on the west coast or southern states. Black windows for instance or waterfall countertops have been around since the early 2000s and we are 10+ years past that design style, black windows work in a modern design home or in a metal frame older style window. Modern Farmhouse… OMG Stay away! 

  You need a design most people will love, not to heavy and not skimpy. Design style, colors, textures that a majority of people will like. They can customize somethings after the purchase but you want to stay middle so most will be happy with your choices. Busy moldings, weird wood on walls, crazy paint color to create a feature wall, save those designs for your own house. Keep your spec house clean with room to add. Saving money is great and you need to, but keep in mind what your sale price is. Maybe a $1.10 sf floor is not going to look great in a $1.6M home. Same for a $8.50 sf floor in a $300K home. You have to find balance and you should one up your competitors in your price point but just do not over or under do it.

The Different Types of Real Estate Investments and Their Pros and Cons

residential real estate, commercial real estate, rental properties, fix-and-flip properties, pros and cons of real estate investments

When it comes to real estate investments, there are various types that investors can consider. Two common options include residential and commercial real estate. Let’s delve into the pros and cons of residential real estate, as well as the specific advantages and disadvantages of rental properties, fix-and-flip properties, and high-end spec homes.

Rental properties offer a consistent monthly passive cash flow, making them an attractive option for investors seeking regular income. However, they also require ongoing maintenance and management responsibilities. Landlords must be prepared to handle tenant issues, property repairs, and vacancies.

On the other hand, fix-and-flip properties can be lucrative when the market is hot and located in high-demand areas. Investors purchase distressed properties at a lower price, renovate them, and sell for a profit. This strategy allows for quick returns but requires careful market analysis and skilled project management.

Lastly, high-end spec homes in prime locations often yield excellent returns (+35% y.o.y.) due to their desirability among affluent buyers. These luxury properties tend to hold their value well even during economic downturns. Nonetheless, investing in high-end spec homes requires substantial capital upfront and carries higher risks with higher rewards for the seasoned developer/investor. 

In summary, while rental properties provide steady income streams with some maintenance commitments involved; fix-and-flip projects can yield quick profits but require careful planning; investing in high-end spec homes offers potential for substantial returns but involves higher financial commitments, typically $3.0-$5.0M. Ultimately, understanding the pros and cons of each type of real estate investment is crucial for making informed decisions that align with your investment goals.

Analyzing Market Trends: How to Identify Promising Locations for Real Estate Investment

real estate market analysis, location analysis for real estate investment, identifying growth areas in the property market

In the dynamic world of real estate investment, identifying promising locations is crucial for maximizing returns. As the saying goes, “location, location, location” remains the biggest criteria when it comes to successful investments. However, in order to truly capitalize on the potential of a property market, comprehensive market trend analysis and location analysis are essential.

Investing in high-end spec homes has proven to be a lucrative endeavor for many investors. These luxury properties offer substantial returns when built in strategic locations that attract affluent buyers. But how can one identify these growth areas and make informed decisions? This is where thorough market trend analysis and location evaluation come into play.

By analyzing market trends, investors can gain valuable insights into emerging growth areas within the property market. Identifying these areas allows investors to stay ahead of the curve and capitalize on future opportunities. Additionally, conducting a detailed location analysis helps determine whether a particular area aligns with investment goals and offers potential for long-term appreciation.

When it comes to high-end spec homes, building in harmony with the neighborhood is paramount. Understanding the local culture, architectural style preferences, and demographic profile of potential buyers are key factors that contribute to success in this niche market segment. Moreover, installing finest finishes and design elements further enhances the appeal of these luxury properties.

In this section, we will delve deeper into analyzing market trends and provide valuable insights on how to identify promising locations for real estate investment. By employing proven strategies and leveraging comprehensive data analysis techniques, investors can make informed decisions that yield profitable returns in an ever-evolving property market landscape.

Financing Your Real Estate Investments: Exploring Funding Options and Strategies

mortgage loans for investment properties, private funding options for real estate investments, creative financing strategies for investors

Financing your real estate investments can be a challenging task in today’s market. Traditional lending institutions, such as banks, have tightened their lending platforms and reduced the availability of mortgage loans for investment properties. This has made it more difficult for investors to secure the necessary funds.

However, there are alternative funding options that can help you overcome these challenges. Private funding options for real estate investments have become increasingly popular. These private lenders are willing to provide financing for investment properties, but it is important to exercise caution and be aware of potential predatory lenders.

In addition to private funding, investors can also explore creative financing strategies to fund their real estate ventures. These strategies include methods such as seller financing, lease options, and partnerships with other investors. By thinking outside the box and exploring these creative approaches, investors can find innovative ways to finance their projects.

While it may not be as easy as it once was to secure financing for real estate investments, there are still viable options available. By researching different funding avenues and being cautious of predatory lenders, investors can navigate the current market landscape and find the funding they need to pursue their real estate goals.

The Importance of Due Diligence: Conducting Thorough Research Before Making an Investment

Due diligence in real estate investments, property inspection checklist, legal considerations in real estate transactions Performing due diligence before investing in real estate is absolutely critical. You must conduct thorough research, utilize a property inspection checklist, and carefully consider all legal considerations related to the transaction. Failure to do so could result in significant financial losses.

Tax Benefits and Strategies for Real Estate Investors: Maximizing Returns through Smart Planning

tips on maximizing tax benefits from real estate investments , 1031 exchange , tax deductions for landlords

As a real estate investor, it is imperative to establish a comprehensive plan that maximizes your returns. One crucial aspect to consider is how to capitalize on the tax benefits that accompany real estate investments. The 1031 exchange is an indispensable tool for postponing taxes on property sales by reinvesting the proceeds into another property. Moreover, landlords can avail themselves of various tax deductions, so make sure to conduct thorough research and seize all available benefits.

Conclusion: Embrace the World of Real Estate Investment and Secure Your Financial Future
