Florida’s dynamic real estate market provides ample Preconstruction Properties to choose from, provided you have an experience Real Estate Lawyer who can help protect your interests.
Pre-construction Properties provide excellent opportunities to buyers of all backgrounds and objectives, from prospective homeowners to real estate investors. Although Florida’s thriving real estate market offers plenty of options to choose from, they each have one factor in common: Legal and financial liabilities that are best minimized with the help of an expert Real Estate Lawyer.
Based in the dynamic and world-class real estate market of South Florida, Jurado & Associates, P.A. has in-depth experience and knowledge in this highly specialized area of real estate. From evaluating the property’s location, to navigating the closing process, we provide individualized and attentive service from beginning to end for all your Preconstruction Property needs.
In the simplest terms, Pre-construction Properties are condos, homes, and other types of real estate that have not been built but are available for purchase. They are generally sold by the developer and have already been planned or broken ground.
Buying a property before it is built may seem counterintuitive, but it brings several distinct advantages over acquiring existing or even brand-new real estate.
Pre-construction Properties usually have a lower initial value than what they would be worth upon completion, thereby increasing the likelihood of a higher return on investment. Likewise, Preconstruction Real Estate has strong appreciation potential, as you can enjoy the benefits of market appreciation while the property is being built.
Depending on its location, a Pre-construction Property may provide an early and invaluable foothold in a potentially lucrative future market, such as a newly developing oceanfront area or a fast-growing downtown district. Aside from investors, homebuyers may also enjoy the opportunity to start fresh with an untouched residence.
However, any Pre-construction Property, regardless of their benefits or your real estate goals, will bring some legal and financial risk. That is why it is essential to have an experienced Real Estate Lawyer at your side before embarking on your acquisition.
The Possible Pitfalls of Pre-construction Properties
As in most real estate transactions, a Pre-construction Property deal will most likely entail preliminary negotiations, which can cover a range of important matters such as purchase price, payment terms, escrow, and so on. Additionally, Pre-construction Real Estate offers an opportunity to hash out additional upgrades or additions to the property, which can impact the overall cost and timeframe for closing.
Regardless of the substance of the negotiations, your Jurado & Associates Real Estate Lawyer will have the experience, dedication, and knowledge to guide you through them. This is one of the most critical stages of any transaction, as it sets forth the terms, conditions, and obligations that will be formalized—and therefore binding—in the subsequent contract between the parties.
Hence, our attorneys will diligently defend your interests throughout the process, meticulously seeking potential liabilities and strategies to mitigate them. If necessary, we will also prepare, review, and further negotiate the contract to ensure that you do not sign without being fully informed and protected to the fullest possible extent.
As in all real estate transactions, timing is a key factor, and this is especially the case with Pre-construction Properties: Construction delays are common and can severely interfere with your future plans. This possibility must be taken into account in both negotiations and the contract, and our attorneys will provide the necessary contingencies and the streamlined communication with the builders to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
Likewise, it is critical to examine the background[RM2] of the developer or builder to determine their reliability and reputation—for example, whether they have a history of lawsuits, code violations, or other issues of concern. Your trusted Jurado & Associates attorney will help minimize the likelihood of entering into a contract where legal or structural problems may arise and will give you a clear-eyed view of both the liabilities and benefits of the options before you.
