I made a Real Estate Inspired Video while testing my new Tokina lens.
The equipment is getting better and better. Sadly, my filming and editing skills aren’t quite keeping up. But I still love trying to be creative, even though I’m not as gifted as I want to be. Still. Room for improvement makes for nice challenges :)
The video above was shot in Port Richey, Florida. It’s a pretty run down area with lot’s of abandoned properties and foreclosures. The big recession in 2008 hit really hard all over Florida and it becomes very apparent in some areas, like this one.
Still. A mess like this creates room for new opportunities. Hence my real estate inspired video with some stories on how profits can be found everywhere. Even in places like this.
What is most striking to me is the massive amounts of abandoned commercial properties.
You can find huge empty places on some really great locations. Who affords to own and hold supermarkets like the one I played around on in the video? It’s been empty for years and now the county is going to make them take it all down. What happens then? Why don’t they try to sell it or fix it up before? Why is there no investor to do something about it? Why don’t I do anything about it?
The Tokina lens by the way. I love it. Not that my videoing is getting better, but I really like it. I will try to get more videos out shortly, just a little busy at the moment, trying finish up the restoration of the a href=”http://www.larsdyrendahl.com/driveway/”>houses we bought here in Florida/a>. Should be finished within a week or two. Plenty of tenants have already lined up, so pretty sure it’s going to work out very well. Feels good to wrap the project up and move on to something new!
