Orlando -The New Hotspot for Foreign Buyers

A new trend in Central Florida, foreign buyers residing in Resort Style Communities.

Resort style communities actually sells homes/units to buyers allowing them to rent them out as suites to people visiting Orlando. These resorts range from 2 to 3 bedrooms and over 1,000 square feet come fully equipped with a kitchen, dining, living area and washer and dryer. Plus cleaning services, which allow owners to collect a portion of the rental income via a management service.

This niche market is giving foreign buyers more than just a vacation home. The property values in Central Florida with owning real estate are at an all time high due to the fact the city of Orlando just brought in a record-breaking 72 million tourists in 2017, according to Visit Orlando, mainly thanks to Disney World.

Florida is the No. 1 destination for international investors buying U.S. real estate. Orlando is second to Miami with Latin Americans accounting for 34% of the buyers. Within the Orlando area, occupancy rates for resorts are around 73.5% on average all year, according to Census data. Orlando real estate has appreciated 62% over the last five years, and the average home prices are around $290,000. Plus, Florida property taxes are 1.7%, typically around $4,500 annually, which is lower than many foreigners.

Most foreign buyers are now looking at Orlando because the returns are good thanks to tourism, its profitable concept for them. Investors want something that appeals to them as a home, and if buyers decide they want to keep their property under lock and key and not rent it out, that’s fine too.

Visit Orlando has announced a historic milestone in the travel industry, with Orlando becoming the first U.S. destination to surpass 70 million annual visitors! Making Orlando, FL the most visited destination in America!

More people than ever are coming to the Orlando area, for it’s incredible access to some of Florida’s iconic theme parks, like Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. These thrilling parks have become ubiquitous of this part of the area.

About 72 million people visited Orlando in 2017 — a record, Visit Orlando revealed. Last years record of people who travels to Orlando FL in 2016 was 68 million, making Orlando the first U.S. city to surpass the 70 million threshhold for tourists, according to Visit Orlando. Orlando is the nation’s capital, when it comes to tourism.

About 20 new attractions opened in Orlando in 2017. According to Visit Orlando, Walt Disney World debuted its Pandora — World of Avatar to rave reviews and long lines for its Flight of Passage ride. Universal Orlando Resort also opened Volcano Bay water park. Orlando also attracted national headlines for its restaurants and things-to-do away from the theme park corridor. An estimated 112 restaurants, resorts and attractions have arrived in Orlando in the past five years.

With Orlando’s record growth is not unexpected given the state of Florida as a whole recorded 116.5 million people in 2017, another all-time high. Revenue from the 6 percent Orange County hotel tax is steadily growing as the visitors stay at short-term rentals. With tourism skyrocketing that has increased short-term home rentals, which has generated about $255 million in the 2017 fiscal year and is steadily growing. That is also a reason why Frobes also named Orlando the number one place to invest to buy real estate in 2018.

With these numbers steady growing its time for you to see what Orlando has to offer and get your vacation home started! For more info about the article click here!

Orlando’s Best Vacation Home Community

Reunion Resort, is one of Orlando’s best vacation home communities to stay while voting Florida. With millions of visitors/tourists each year in Orlando many of them stay in hotels/resorts.

Where’s Best to Buy in Orlando?

The strong dollar hasn’t kept the crowds away from Florida this year, with the Sunshine State on course for a new tourism record. Visitor numbers in the first six months of 2016 increased by 6 per cent compared with last year and the state expects to welcome 115 million tourists for the whole year, compared with 105 million in 2015.

This is all good news for homeowners in Florida, with demand driving both house price growth and rentals. “The market is really picking up here in Orlando, with more investors now looking at buy-to-let properties as well as vacation homes,” said An Flamand, owner of the agent Orlando Vacation Realty. “Prices are still very good value, especially compared to what your money gets you elsewhere, like in Europe.”

David D’Ambrosio, director of operations at the Grove Resort & Spa in Orlando, added: “Recent statistics from HomeUnion [the investment property portal] revealed that Orlando’s family holiday home rental market is set to rise by 6.1 per cent per month this year, due to its growing leisure and hospitality industries.”

Most second homes around Disney are in the “Golden Triangle” or “Four Corners” areas. Fanning northwards from Haines City to the edges of Disney, these include the metropolitan hubs of DavenportKissimmee and ChampionsGate where short-term rentals are allowed, and being bisected by Interstate 4 affords fast access to Orlando city and the airport. Here’s a closer look at where to buy, depending on your requirements.

Second homes with proven rentals to pay the bills

Established communities (also called resorts) that combine easy access to the theme parks and golf typically offer the best rental returns. Popular ones suited to the traditional family second homeowner include High Grove, Tuscan Hills, Solana, Calabay Parc, Highlands Reserve, Highgate Park, Tuscan Ridge and West Haven. Disney World is no more than 20-25 minutes’ drive from each of these.

“For budgets of $80,000 to $135,000, most clients realise that a condo or apartment with resort amenities is the best option,” said Howard Thorne at Homes of America Realty Group.

“And those with $135,000 to $200,000 lean more towards a town home, preferably one with its own splash/plunge pool. And those buyers looking for a home that attracts enough rental income to at least pay for itself, leaving enough profit over to pay for trips to Florida a couple of times a year, are paying $200,000 to $350,000.”

Single family homes for as little as $160,000 are available, said Mr Thorne, but with lower rental yields they are usually better suited to retirees or non-rental second homeowners.

For buyers planning to spend six months of the year in Florida, typically retirees, more residential communities with quieter neighbourhoods, lots of natural scenery and where the homeowners’ association (HOA) fees are low are preferred. Examples are Watersong in Davenport and Orange Tree in Clermont.

The agent Homes of America recently helped a couple who appeared on A Place in the Sun on the TV to purchase in Watersong. “They were looking for a more residential/second home area, where they could spend half the year,” said Mr Thorne. “Initially, they did not want to rent out their property, but they now accept 10-16 weeks of rentals each year, just to cover their outgoings on the house.”

An Flamand confirmed that “most buyers tend to look for three, four and five-bedroom vacation homes with pools and sometimes spas, too”. She recently helped Scottish clients to buy a four bedroom second home with a pool in West Haven, Davenport. They paid $245,000 for the property, which is a holiday home that they’ll also let.

Meanwhile, communities suited to buyers who don’t want to be more than 10 minutes from Disney include Windsor Hills, Sunset Lakes, Emerald Island, Tuscany, Calabria, Indian Creek and Formosa Gardens.

Golf, not theme parks?

If being closer to a fairway is more important, a home in the golf communities of Reunion, ChampionsGate, Mystic Dunes and Southern Dunes are safe bets. For something new, though, Flamand suggests a new-build town home at the golf villas development at Providence Golf Club, Davenport, where the developer is offering fixed rental returns.

Meanwhile, just west of Orlando in Montverde is the relaunched Bella Collina golf community. The project, created by the same developer as Reunion, stalled during the last economic crisis but not before the one-of-a-kind Tuscan-style clubhouse was built, infrastructure put in and the Nick Faldo golf course was opened in 2008.

With a new owner, the community offers stunning lakeside and frontline plots, available through The Jerry Barker Group, whose own property there will open as a show home early in the new year. Prices at Bella Collina start from about $500,000 for a three-bed pre-construction home, rising to $11million for a palatial lakeside home built in 2014.

Fully managed vacation resorts: the ultimate stress-free property

Some of Florida’s most exciting opportunities are in new hotel-style vacation resorts, where owners often have the option to enter their property into a leaseback or rental scheme with the developer. Facilities offered at new projects coming to market in the next year are comparable to full-blown holiday resorts.

Once complete, The Grove Resort & Spa, next to Lake Austin and five minutes from Disney, will include 878 apartments. For a limited time the resort is offering buyers in the first phase of 292 units the option to enter a two-year leaseback programme, which delivers a 10 per cent gross return (before tax and insurance).

Owners will then have the option to join the standard rental programme managed by Benchmark Hospitality International. Prices at The Grove, where extensive on-site facilities include a water park and surf simulator, start at $255,000. Not five minutes from The Grove and even closer to Disney is the site of another mega resort, Margarita Village, by Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Resorts, due to open in the first half of 2017. Centred around a hotel, a lake with a beach area, water park and commercial outlets, the site will include a mix of vacation homes, timeshare units and residential apartments.

“Margarita Village is going to be something else,” said Jerry Barker. “We have over a dozen pre-sale reservations, including one of my own. Models and prices are due to be released early next year and the infrastructure is currently going in. This place will rock everything else.”

Balmoral at Waters Edge in Haines City, 25 minutes from Disney and 12 minutes from Legoland, is another more boutiquey option. Built around a series of navigable lakes and themed garden areas, a total of 245 three to eight-bedroom houses are planned. Complementing the clubhouse and usual amenities will be a water park and Ronaldo soccer academy.

The resort’s grand opening is planned for the end of March. “Phase one, which consisted of 102 units, has just sold out with the largest group of buyers being from the UK,” said Garrett Kenny, chief executive of Feltrim Group, Balmoral’s developer.

“We released phase two, which consists of 85 units, in October. Prices are from $328,000, inclusive of luxury furniture and a private pool. We’re also offering a 6 per cent net leaseback contract to buyers at Balmoral for up to three years, including off -peak personal use.”

All on-site management at Balmoral will be by Feltrim Resorts, whose recent contract with Virgin Holidays, kicking off in the spring, has already resulted in 150 bookings for the May to December 2017 period.

With a growing number of resort launches lined up, central Florida’s holiday home market is gearing up for an exciting 2017. For a home that lets you and your rental guests enjoy theme parks, golf and a quality outdoors lifestyle, the sunshine state is hard to beat.

Orlando’s New Water Park

May 25th will be the Grand Opening of Universal’s Orlando Volcano Bay Water Park. This is Universals second water theme park to open as Wet N Wild will be closing December 31st 2017. With much anticipation for its grand opening, here are some fun facts about what this water park has to offer compared to others in the Orlando Area! Plus this amazing theme park is less than 20 minutes from Reunion Resort! Making it the perfect spot to go during the summer!

The motto is ” Water is Life. Life is Joy.”  That’s the carefree attitude the fabled Waturi islanders have embraced on their Pacific isle for centuries. Now you can live the Waturi way at Universal’s Volcano Bay.  It’s a tropical paradise just steps away from everything Universal Orlando Resort has to offer.

Now, Disney will not be the only one using write bad to virtually hold your place in line! Volcano Bays’ New Technology, the TapuTapu puts the Wonders of Volcano Bay right at your wrist!  At Volcano Bay, every guest is granted the powers of the TapuTapu, a waterproof wearable specifically designed for the park. With just a touch of your wrist you’ll be able to hold your place in a Virtual Line at the rides and discover wondrous surprises.

What the park has to offer! 

The Volcano

At the heart of the island stands Krakatau™, the mighty Fire and Water Volcano. Towering 200 feet above the tropical landscape, Krakatau streams waterfalls during the day and fiery lava effects at night. Inside the cavernous volcano the Waturi people dare you to brave a variety of heart-pounding water slides.

Krakatau™ Aqua Coaster
Honorary Waturi can experience the power of Krakatau™ on this amazing ride. Four-person canoes slide upward through the mists and into the dark twists and turns within the volcano before emerging with a plunge through a shimmering waterfall.

Ko’okiri Body Plunge™
Join in the centuries-old tradition of honoring the volcano god, Vol, by braving the incredible Ko’okiri Body Plunge. Featuring a 70-degree fall through a drop door and 125 feet of screaming, white-knuckle fun, this dizzying descent ends with a watery tribute from Vol himself.

Kala & Tai Nui Serpentine Body Slides™
Join Kala and Tai Nui where sea and sky meet and take a leap of faith from high atop the volcano. Twin trap doors simultaneously drop two guests down clear, intertwining tubes before sending them joyfully splashing into the turquoise waters below.

Punga Racers™
A favorite among Waturi children of all ages, Punga Racers send single riders on their manta ray mats sliding down four lanes through underwater sea caves.
Wave Village 

This peaceful escape overlooks the sparkling waters of Waturi Beach at the base of the volcano.

Waturi Beach
Locals know — the surf’s always up at Waturi Beach. Swim, splash and relax right along with them in the sparkling waters and warm waves of this sparkling lagoon at the foot of mighty Krakatau™.

River Village
The scenic River Village has fun for people of all ages, including the very youngest Waturi.
Honu ika Moana™
Just like the ancient Waturi people who rode the ocean waves on friendly sea turtles and whales, guests can enjoy these two twisting, turning, multi-person slides. Honu sweeps up two massive walls, while ika Moana sprays water on riders from the center of the raft.Tot Tiki Reef™ & Runamukka Reef™
The little ones can frolic among the splashy slides and fountains of the Tot Tiki Reef toddler play area, while Runamukka Reef delights older children with its bubbling geysers, water guns, slides and dump cups.

Kopiko Wai Winding River™
Take a slow ride on the Kopiko Wai Winding River. Sprays of water surprise along the way, and beneath the lava rocks, Stargazer’s Cavern reveals the magical night sky above.

Rainforest Village 

Rainforest Village stretches along the shores of an action-packed river and features the perfect mix of relaxation and exhilaration.

Ohyah & Ohno Drop Slides™
Test your mettle and get into the Waturi spirit. Ascend cliff side and plummet down the twisting waters of Ohyah before dropping out four feet above the pool below. To achieve even greater bragging rights, brave the rope bridge and plunge down Ohno, a serpentine adventure that ends six feet above the pool below. Be sure to yell your battle cry on the way down.

Maku Puihi Round Raft Rides™
Ready for the high adventure of the Maku Puihi lava tubes? This six-person rafting adventure is a favorite of Waturi families, but it’s not for the faint of heart. Choose one of two paths or try them both—just be ready for a thrilling ride. Puihi careens through a dark, winding tunnel before the stomach-flipping thrill of zero gravity hang time. Maku slides you through a deep volcanic gorge before spinning wildly around bowl-like formations.

TeAwa The Fearless River™
Up for an adventure? Take a thrilling whitewater ride along TeAwa The Fearless River. Race along a roaring, watery onslaught of churning rapids and choppy waves hanging tight to your inner tube.

Taniwha Tubes™
There’s a place where the puka trees grow abnormally tall. Inspired by their twisting roots, the Waturi built four twisting water slides called the Taniwha Tubes. Riders can try all four twisting tracks, but beware — mischievous tiki statues spray jets of water when you least expect it.
