Luxury homes in Florida are one of the most popular second home investments anywhere in the world. Florida has earned the reputation, not only as a great place to live, but also as a location that delivers excellent occupancy levels year on year.
Luxury Florida homes, waterfront mansions, riverfront property, ocean access real estate, golf course villas are all on the market here in Florida - and they are priced to sell. The luxury home market in Florida is still a busy real estate market throughout the state especially with international buyers! Its not really that surprising, Florida is a great place to live through most of the year. Astute home buyers are active in a market that has dropped by 40% or more in many areas and this allows them to buy their dream home in the right location at prices that many thought we would never see again. Add to this builders who need to fill inventory and luxury home owners who have over extended themselves in recent years and you have one of the best times in decades to snap up a piece of bargain luxury real estate in some of Florida's best addresses.
For overseas buyers, principally the Canadians, British, European and Latin Americans, the current luxury home real estate market in Florida offers even greater value for money due to the weak dollar. The prices are very low, the exchange rates are very favourable therefore the risk is low. Because you can now buy a beach home at prices equivalent to 8-10 years ago, the amount of rental income that you require to meet your monthly payments is far lower than for those owners who bought just a few years ago.
You can now pick up new beach vacation homes in great rental locations which are heavily discounted from peak prices.

The buying process for a Florida vacation home and a regular home is the same, however there are some important aspects that you and your realtor will need to discuss. Florida vacation homes should ideally be within a "Rental Zone". A rental zone is an area, county, sub-division or development that allows you to rent out your property.
There are numerous variations:
Vacation homes in Florida and particularly in Orlando are excellent investments. Florida has a strong history of tourism and currently enjoys well over 80 million visitors each and every year and in 2011 attracted almost 86 million visitors. Occupancy rates for established Florida vacation homes can be impressive with over 40 weeks of rentals each year. New vacation homes in Florida and those presently in pre construction can also succeed on the rental market and most certainly will because right now you are able to buy a new vacation homes for less than the same property 3 years ago.
What does that mean to you?
It means that because you are paying less for the property which means that your mortgage payments will be less than those of owners who bought a few years ago. This in turn allows you to rent out your vacation home at LESS than your competitors, which, if one marketed correctly, means that you will achieve a HIGHER OCCUPANCY.
Why should I charge less for my property than anyone else?
Charging lower rental rates for your Florida vacation home when the economy is struggling means that more families will be able to afford to take a vacation. But more importantly for you, you will be building a loyal relationship with these families at a crucial time, when your new development is still finding its feet. As the market gets stronger you will be able to increase your rates and STILL be competetive.
