Often Florida is looked to for second home and vacation investment property. Many of our foreign friends from around the world have discovered what our Canadian friends have known for some time. Florida is a big draw! with its sandy beaches, golfing, Disney World, many tourist activities and let us not forget the sunshine. 

Do you know that in 2010 60% of South Florida homes were bought as second homes and investment properties from our Friends from overseas. This momentum continues today.

Florida is your future Home!

Second home purchases are of big interest to the Baby Boomers as well. As these Boomers are preparing to relocate to the sunshine state, the beaches and golf courses, Florida is perfectly positioned to help those dreams become a reality. Many investors are now buying properties in Florida and renting them out. The objective of course is to take advantage of the most highly sought-after states in the Country, having someone pay the mortgage while they finish off their careers and prepare to retire here is a great added benefit.

Florida’s No tax state (with tax incentives) is another huge draw.

If the sunshine, warm weather, Beaches, golfing, amusement parks and incredible culinary doesn’t entice your emotional side then look at these tax benefits and let you logic side take over.
