2. Location, Location, Location!

We’ve all heard this before, but the saying always holds true. You need to buy the right house, in the right town, on the right street, that meets your needs and goals.

Central Florida is the all-time favorite area for the British, namely Orlando. This area draws in big crowds and is a ‘go-to’ destination for families due to the number of attractions, including Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and Sea World. Central Florida also is a hub for avid golfers boasting the best courses in the state. Orlando alone is home to over 110 golf courses, all within a 45 minute radius. Let us not forget the shopping! There is abundance of shopping malls and outlet stores within the region, offering everything from high street fashions to high-end designer brands.

Most people buy a property located in a community zoned for STR’s (short term rentals) due to flexibility reasons. Owning a home in this type of community offers a number of options to homeowners, such as:

  • Living in the property full time
  • Using the property as a year-round, short term rental property for vacationers
  • Leasing the property to long-term rental tenants
  • Renting the property during the times you are not using it.

On the flip side of the coin you cannot rent short term (less than 7 months) in an area that does not carry the required zoning.

Central Florida’s climate is warm all year round, and there is less rain than in coastal areas. Central Florida’s popularity has resulted in an ever booming healthy short term rental market, which makes this part of Florida a great choice for investors and second home owners.

Although Orlando is central to the state and has no beaches, its location offers easy access to 6 beautiful beaches all within a 90 minute drive or less. Driving to the beach offers spectacular views of this beautiful state. For those interested in seeing the Gulf Coast beaches, there are 7 beaches that can be reaches with a 2 ½ hour drive from Orlando.
