Florida: great for investors as well as lifestyle

Many British people seek to buy a property in Florida for lifestyle reasons but the state also offers great investment potential too.

Plenty of British owners in Miami, for example, have already seen this (and this is featured in the new issue of A Place in the Sun magazine, out April 4th).

But do you want the best return on investment (ROI) in the lovely sunshine of South West Florida?

CNN Money voted south-west Florida the best place to retire in USA. The world view is that Florida has bottomed out, and is now in its recovery phase. Housing costs are significantly rising, and demand is extremely high.

And when housing prices rise, land immediately follows. UK investors see this as a prime opportunity to purchase land now, and profit later by selling to builders or building a new home.

Major economic developments, particularly on Florida's Gulf Coast, are causing economists to predict a large jump in land values due to new construction projects, airport expansions, major league sports arenas, new job growth, shopping centres and more.

Florida offers a low cost of living, an abundant lifestyle and no state sales tax which most other US states charge, says Megan Gilmour of Asset Quest LLC (www.assetquest.com).

“Today land values are 70-80 per cent below peak prices. Asset Quest is the highest volume land dealer in Florida. We are the only land company that provides a minimum of 60-70 per cent total return over investment (ROI) over three years.

“All land plots are a freehold ownership with no time restrictions to build. This provides a no-hassle secure investment. We make the process of buying land plots easy and smooth for all of our clients. Our personal approach and passion for real estate ensures a smooth transaction for all. “
