Are you a cash investor? Think about investing on the east coast!

Real estate investing, and cash investors, abound on the east coast. The market share captured by cash investors in several areas of Florida outnumber entire western states 3 to 1. 7 metropolitan areas in Florida are found within the top 10 nationally for this statistic; i.e., the economic influence cash investors yield throughout Florida is well above the national median.

In general cash purchases are higher across the eastern states. The higher opportunity in Florida for buying real estate as a cash investor is apparent. The statistics point to this conclusion specifically. Their method of foreclosure should be considered. This influences which type of buyer ultimately purchases a property.

Check out this figure and let me know what conclusions you draw?

NV. I know what you're gonna say. I just found this interesting. I love investment news and thought I would share something I found genuinely fascinating. I did not intend to distract the focus of my blog from Las Vegas. But I can understand how an inconsistency like this should be avoided.

But in my mind investors and buyers are different in the fact that they don't have to live where they purchase real estate. Absentee owners exist in every market including foreign investors. So I relate this to real estate investors in Las Vegas.

I'm assuming a lot, but I think you are advising me to stick on the Las Vegas straight and narrow path! Let me know

I agree with Mike.

I think, you should post NV data. But comparing it side to side to FL might be interesting too.

All the best!
