Florida’s "Lifestyle" Investing
Florida lifestyle investing brings in the beaches and water amenities and the quiet relaxing lifestyle of gulf course and waterfront living. With the growing number of baby boomers in the U.S and the ever increasing numbers of foreigners looking for second homes Florida has become the number 1 destination for the lifestyle investors and for good reason. Florida is of course the sunshine state. Florida comes in second only to Alaska for the most miles of shoreline and beaches than any other state. Florida is boasting 1350 miles of shoreline all within the sunshine that lifestyle investors are seeking.
Lifestyle “amenities”: A new emergence of popularity is the mid-state gulf coast. Miami and Orlando have often made the international news, so people both foreign and domestic have heard about these locations. Lifestyle investors that are looking for lots of activities but want less crowded cities have quickly discovered Sarasota / Bradenton areas. In these gulf coast communities you will find activities, restaurants, museums, golf courses, (world class golf courses) and the best beaches Florida or the country has to offer. Siesta key voted best U.S beach has got the finest, whitest powdery sand around. (Powdered white quartz). Then there is the world renowned Anna Maria Island. Anna Maria is known for its natural shoreline which is non commercialized coast line free of skyscraping condo buildings. These beaches are extremely popular as they have ample space to park, play and dine. These cities have amenities that you would find in a large metropolitan area with multiple millions in population, but these two counties combined house just over 400 thousand residences. With plenty of elbow room between neighbors and a plethora of activities the lifestyle investors love the Gulf coast area.
Strong economies: Lifestyle investors love the activities and the lifestyle and as investors they want strong economically sound communities where they can have an expectation of home values increasing. This is another attribute that makes the Sarasota/ Bradenton area so popular.
