What to look for when searching for a new holiday home in Florida

What to look for when searching for a new holiday home in Florida


A holiday home can be a great investment, whether it is for personal use or to let out to paying customers. However, there are a number of points a prospective buyer should consider to ensure that they purchase the best real estate Florida has to offer.




First of all, the individual needs to decide why they are buying a holiday home. Most people purchase a holiday home for one of two reasons: to use the property themselves or to seek financial gain from it. Even if it is a mixture, one side will tend to be stronger than the other.


If it is mainly for personal use then it is important for the buyer to consider his or her own needs as opposed to making a strictly financial investment. In other words, they should not concern themselves over how much the property will be worth in a decade or two. Instead, they should focus on what they will enjoy and what will make a perfect holiday home for them.


If the priority is to profit from the real estate this does not automatically mean that personal taste has to be put completely aside. However, it is vital for the buyer to consider factors such as property prices and currency changes over rental yield very carefully. These aspects are important in terms of overall return.


Buyers who fall in the middle ground need to make sure they can achieve a good balance between both factors. When considering property to buy in Florida, the location should be somewhere they want to stay in, for instance. However, other factors, like the length of the season and how easy it is for the target market to access the property are important, as they will affect the financial return and rental prospects.


Legal issues


It is important for any buyer to seek professional legal advice when looking into property in America. Before any decisions are made basic groundwork and legal procedures must be covered. A good lawyer will also be able to help with any possible future issues, like building an extension. The prospective purchaser should be aware of all the legal requirements in Florida, regarding short-term rentals, especially if purchasing on a complex.




The buyer should take care to ensure that proper research is carried out on the property and not simply to rely on what the agent tells them. It is vital to personally visit the property and get a complete structural survey carried out. If the plan is to rent the holiday home out then research should be carried out in regards to the tourist market. It is also important to consider the financial implications should the rental market prove to be less buoyant than expected.


Professional help


For first time buyers the whole process can be quite daunting. This why it is worth considering employing the services of a property finder, because they will have specialist knowledge of the area concerned and will be able to provide good advice concerning property investment. Although this will involve additional expense, it may turn out to be an investment worth making.
