Bay Harbor Islands Developers Join Forces to Draw Buyer Traffic to the Florida Island

Robert Morales
BAY HARBOR ISLANDS, FL – A newly-formed task force of Bay Harbor Islands developers have come together to draw buyer traffic to the 383-acre island. 

The like-minded developers of this task force, called the Island Living Council, are dedicated to increasing the island’s visibility as it is often overlooked by brokers and buyers.

Bay Harbor Islands is a secluded, yet centrally located, waterfront oasis that is experiencing a major resurgence. The town offers a friendly neighborhood environment, fine dining, excellent schools and more, with destinations just a short walk or bike ride away.
“From the eyes of a developer, this is a great event to bring buyers to the island,” said Robert Morales, Ability of Acierto’s vice president of operations. Ability by Acierto is the development team behind Bijou Bay Harbor. “All of us have something to bring to the table that will highlight the beauty of Bay Harbor Islands.”

RealtyTrac Ranks Best Markets for Buying Single Family Rentals in 2026

Daren Blomquist

 IRVINE, CA — RealtyTrac® (, the nation’s leading source for comprehensive housing data, released its Q1 2016 Single Family Rental Market Report, which ranks the best markets for buying residential rental properties in 2016.

The report analyzed single family rental returns in 448 U.S. counties each with a population of at least 100,000 and sufficient rental and home price data. 

Rental data was from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and home price data was from publicly recorded sales deed data collected and licensed by RealtyTrac markets.

“Rapidly rising home prices and tepid wage growth have dampened single family rental investment returns and growth potential in many markets, but there are still plenty of solid opportunities available for real estate investors willing to cast a wider geographic net,” said Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at RealtyTrac.

 “Rents are rising faster than median home prices in 45 percent of the markets analyzed — indicating continued strong demand for rentals in those markets — while annual wage growth is outpacing rent growth in 43 percent of the markets — indicating room for rising rental returns in those markets.”
