The climate for real estate investing is the best we have seen in a generation, especially commercial real estate in the Southeast and Florida. While stocks have been volatile over the past year and bonds are at dangerously high prices with very low yields, commercial real estate is just beginning to recover. Banks in the Southeast and elsewhere are being forced to sell commercial properties, including condo developments, hotels, office buildings and light industrial properties, at attractive prices. If you know the market and can get access to these deals, you are looking at very attractive rates of return. Florida, especially, is an area of increasing population growth and limited supply of housing – good demographic trends for real estate investment.
