FLORIDA PROPERTY INVESTMENT OPTIONS

IF YOU’VE DECIDED THAT FLORIDA REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT IS A GOOD STRATEGY FOR YOUR PORTFOLIO AND YOU PLAN TO BUY A FLORIDA INVESTMENT PROPERTY, THE AREA PROVIDES YOU WITH SOME GREAT ALTERNATIVES.

There are several types of Florida investment property to choose from:

  • Income property

Central Florida is a fast-growing area with many developments and after the recent frenzied period of construction followed by a market downturn, rental property for permanent residents in is great demand.  Many former owners who lost their homes due to foreclosure are now confirmed rental candidates.  The task for a property owner is to ensure that rental clients are subject to the right level of checking and validation before signing a long-term rental contract.  returns have not kept pace with purchase prices.

  • Short-term rental homes

Theme-park popularity has led to the development of a thriving short-term rental market – homes and condos are made available for visitors as a quality alternative to hotels / motels. Look for a property that has “something special” to make it stand out from the crowd – in an ever-more competitive market, you will need all of the advantages you can find.

  • Land

Prices continue to rise as Orlando’s boundaries expand, but take care to explore the unique Florida issues before buying. Wetlands, zoning restrictions and even protected wild life are just some of the issues to deal with when looking for a Florida investment property.

  • Commercial

Housing expansion is producing a follow-on in commercial growth. Look for up-and-coming areas where demand can only increase. Right now there is a shortage of space in developments which attract high-volume traffic (e.g. shop space next to a large supermarket). The best advice whatever your planned investment? Consult a professional if you have any concerns about the risks involved or if you have any gaps at all in your knowledge. And most of all – beware of the too-good-to-be-true: click here: Guaranteed Income Property.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:

Very excited by our new purchase and cannot thank you enough. You were such a help through very unfamiliar territory. Would be more than happy to act as a reference any time.
G.K., Kent, UK

You helped us from start to finish and beyond . . . from finding and choosing the plot through to furnishing the house and helping to set up the utilities once we had closed on the home – a “one-stop shop”. You made it all so smooth and trouble free for us. We were so far away in the U.K. . . . I don’t know how anyone does this without your help.

Chris helped me to build my real estate holding from 0 to 5 homes worth almost $1 million dollars in just over 3 years, including 3 Disney Orlando Vacation homes. All were sold for a profit, which I give credit to Chris, who knows the Florida Real Estate market so well.

It looks so easy from the Internet sites. And some other Realtors play down exactly what is involved. What Colin showed us and what he did meant that we were kept informed at every stage. He made sure that we knew what we needed at each stage, from buying through to setting up the home and managing it the most effectively. We want to thank him for everything.
V.B., Exeter, UK

We just want to say how much we value the work that Colin did for us. His advice helped us to avoid what could have been some big mistakes and he showed us how to find the place we were looking for – or rather, the home that best fitted our plans both now and in the future. It’s amazing, looking back, how much Colin’s challenge to our preconceptions changed our thinking. I’m delighted both that we were referred to him and that he continues to give us support when we require it.
