PRLog - Dec. 7, 2012 - SOUTH FLORIDA, Fla. -- SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FL – A growing number of Canadian and Brazilian buyers, who often have financing difficulties when purchasing a home in the U.S., are investing in luxury Sunny Isles Beach real estate with cash purchases. Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors®, has stated that the increase in more buyers paying cash for real estate reflected tight lending conditions and an increase in investor sales. NAR research shows that 62% of international purchases were all cash; and that percentage has continually increased since 2007.
“Our US economy is in a state of recovery and investors from stable or strengthening economies, such as Canada and Brazil, are taking advantage of the buying opportunity,”
The Porsche Design Tower, which expands the Porsche Design Studio’s luxury brand into the residential real estate market, is one several new luxury properties calling Sunny Isles Beach home.
Evaluated in US$ 560,000,000, the tower will showcase a one-of-a-kind robotic parking system; allowing owners to have their cars (and themselves) transported, in just 90 seconds, by a glass elevator with panoramic view to their sky garages, directly next to their units. Due to the all glass structure, the vehicles are visible from the inside of the condo.
Ulises Cicciarelli says that, even with list prices currently starting at $4,000,000, more than half of Porsche Design Tower’s 132 units have already been sold. “Many investors need assistance not only during the purchase process, but also help coordinating remodeling activities and I take pride in providing management of these activities to my clients”, Cicciarelli added.
Units at the Porsche Design Tower will range from 3,800 to 9,500 square feet with the ocean-facing units including a private pool. The project is expected to be completed by 2016.
