Florida Property Investment For Sale

 

“The Sunshine State is shining for investors once again”

 

When the American property market crashed it did so more spectacularly in Florida than anywhere else and now as the market is in recovery once again all eyes are on the retirement capital of the USA

Florida offers a host of great investment hot spots from the centre of theme park entertainment in Orlando to the Altlantic coast with its famous Daytona and Palm beaches, Miami and the beautiful Florida Keys.

Orlando – set away from the coast in central Florida, Orlando attracts millions of visitors thanks to the huge theme park complexes of Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios and is considered to be one of the most visited destinations in the world.  As such it has a very healthy holiday rental market.

Miami – a thriving cosmopolitan city, with prices to match, has a reputation as a party city with a young 25-35 year old demographic.

Daytona and Palm Beaches - attract many retired couples and a little further north up the east coast St Augustine, the USA’s oldest city (founded in 1565), offers a quieter and more refined version of Orlando.

The Florida Keys – a string of small interlinked islands which stretch from the southern tip of the state to the Gulf of Mexico offer some of the most expensive and desirable properties with prices on average 25% higher than the rest of the state.

The Gulf Coast – has a slightly wetter climate, especially during the peak months of July and August so attracts fewer family tourists but is very popular with retirees with two thirds of the US’s wealthiest citizens spending their winter in Naples – the most popular town on this coast.
