Developers creeping back into South Florida as demand for rentals increases!

Two respected Palm Beach County -based homebuilders are planning new rental communities in South Florida. The moves are a further sign that developers are tiptoeing back into the housing market.

Kolter Group LLC has dusted off plans to build a rental community near Lake Worth. In addition, Ram Development Co. of Palm Beach Gardens is scouring South Florida for apartment sites.

Kolter will build a 204-unit garden apartment complex on U.S. 441, north of Lantana Road. The complex, dubbed Woodwinds, will consist of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Rental prices have not yet been set but they will be around $1.10 per square foot for the units, which are expected to start at $750 square feet for the one-bedroom units, said Bob Vail, Kolter vice president.

The move comes as Kolter has decided to build 4001 North Ocean, a condominium on State Road A1A, just north of Gulf Stream. 4001 North Ocean is the first newly planned condominium in the county since the real-estate bust, and it may be the first newly planned condo in the Southeast United States. The project will consist of 34 condos and four villas, with prices ranging from $1.4 million to $3 million.
Vail said Woodwinds was approved for development a couple of years ago, but Kolter didn't start building. Instead, the company had the land under contract to an unidentified buyer, who ultimately did not close.

With the housing market mired in foreclosures, Kolter began to notice the rising demand for rentals. So the West Palm Beach-based company has decided to develop Woodwinds after all.

US to charge £9 for Esta compulsory travel entry form

The US government is to start charging UK travellers $14 (£9) to apply for permission to enter the country.

The compulsory Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (Esta) is free at present, but from 9 September visitors to the US will have to pay for it.

It lasts for two years; people who already have a valid form will not have to pay until their current one expires.

The scheme was introduced in January 2009 but was made mandatory from January 2010.

It applies to all 35 countries with US "visa waiver" status.

Promote tourism

The Electronic System for Travel Authorisation form, which takes up to 72 hours to be approved, gives air passengers prior approval for entry to the US.

It replaced the green I-94 card which passengers have previously filled in on their flight into the US.

End Quote Martin Lewis MoneySavingExpert.com

Most people who fill in the form should receive approval from the US Department of Homeland Security within a few minutes.

But British Airways and American Airlines are advising travellers to apply at least 72 hours in advance.

Both airlines have said people without valid Esta forms or visas will not be allowed to board flights to the US.

The fee has been introduced to fund a programme which aims to promote tourism in the US and attract foreign spending.

Martin Lewis, creator of MoneySavingExpert.com, has urged people even considering a trip to the US to apply for a form now to beat the charge.

He said: "The security authorisation lasts for two years, so do it now and it'll be free if you travel in that time. Yet leave it for a month and you'll have to pay for it.

So save money now and apply for your ESTA! and dont forget you can also save with Bargain Villas - search here for Cheap USA villas and Cheap Florida villas
