Below is a question raised by a prospective buyer, owner or seller of Florida property and the advice we were able to give:
Is Windsor Hills worth the premium when compared to other gated communities in the area? we are looking into buying a short term rental home in the Disney area. We are not american citizens. With your dollar depreciating as well as your real estate we feel the time is right to purchase in a gated community for the long term. We are just not sure if the premium price on Windsor hills homes is worth it from an investment stand point.
If you’re looking at a purchase from purely a dispassionate investment viewpoint (rarely the case!) the answer to your question is “no, Windsor Hills is not worth the premium”. Although it’s a very nice community, there are others within the short-term rental area that are arguably just as good and with better investment potential.
But your buying decision is far more complicated than just this one investment question. Are you prepared to ignore all personal preferences – for example, do you prefer a new or a resale home? What features are really important to you other than the investment angle?
