ORLANDO RECORDS FASTEST GROWING POPULATION IN THE US
AS INVESTORS LOOK TO THE SUNSHINE STATE

Orlando is number one destination for population growth, welcoming over 60,400 new residents in 12 months (US Census Bureau)

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ITS MOST FAMOUS RESIDENT, MICKEY MOUSE, THE US CITY OF ORLANDO IS CONTINUING TO ATTRACT A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF NEW INHABITANTS.

CLICK TO READ THE MAGAZINE

According to the most recent figures released by the US Census Bureau, Orlando is the number one destination for population growth, adding over 60,400 new residents in just 12 months (July 2014 to July 2015).

This substantial increase accounted for a 2.6% growth in Orlando’s total population during the 12 month period, making it the fastest growing of the US’s 30 largest regions. Orlando’s rising population ensured that it was also named in Forbes.com’s prestigious list of America’s fastest growing cities.

Compiled by ranking the 100 largest metro areas and their surrounding suburbs, they factor in population growth for 2015 and 2016, year-over-year job growth for 2015, the metro’s economic growth rate, unemployment, and median annual pay for college-educated workers in the area.

Currently ranked 7th, with a substantial projected growth rate of 2.03% for 2016, Orlando is definitely a city to watch this year. With a rising population comes growing housing demand, and savvy international investors are increasingly looking to Orlando and the Sunshine State of Florida as a safe and secure destination, with a wealth of opportunities.


In 2015 Orlando greeted over 66 million tourists,  (Florida over 100 Million!) a 5.4% growth in comparison to 2014

As well as experiencing strong population growth, Orlando has also witnessed a surge of tourism in recent years, adding to its already strong position as a hub of real estate investment.

2015 saw Florida become the first state to ever welcome more than 100 million out-of-state and international tourists, with over 105 million people visiting the Sunshine State throughout the year. Will Seccombe, President and Chief Executive Officer of Visit Florida, the state’s tourism authority, emphasised Orlando’s part in this record breaking achievement, explaining,

“Orlando is the most visited destination in the United States. It’s the most visited city, and certainly the home of the theme park capital of the world, right? No place else on earth can compare to that.”

The city itself attained a new tourism record in 2015 as ‘The City Beautiful’ welcomed over 66 million tourists. George Aguel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Visit Orlando, the region’s tourism arm, recently revealed 2015’s 5.4% growth, which comes just a year after Orlando became the first US destination to surpass 60 million visitors.

Orlando was America’s number one employment centre for job growth in 2015 (Labour Market Data)

Buyers who purchased a house in Orange, Seminole, Osceola or Lake counties

Metro Orlando’s housing market outperformed Florida’s in January for both price increases and sales volume, a new report shows.

Buyers who purchased a house in Orange, Seminole, Osceola or Lake counties during January paid a midpoint price of $202,000, which was about $3,000 higher than the median price across the state.

Central Florida’s year-over-year price gains surpassed the state’s 13 percent price growth during the last year.

Orlando had about 2,000 sales of single-family homes in January, which was up 4.3 percent from January 2015.

Near the four-county Orlando area, the metro areas for Polk, Volusia and Brevard counties all experienced larger year-over-year price gains than the state in January. The midpoint price for both Polk and Volusia last month was $150,000 and that was up at least 15 percent from the beginning of last year. And Brevard County’s median sales price of $168,038 in January increased more than 17 percent during that time.

The double-digit growth in house prices from a year ago trickled over to Florida’s condominium market. Condo prices throughout the state increased 11 percent during the year-long period and hit a midpoint of $152,000. In Orlando, prices for those multi-family-style units increased 18 percent during the year to reach a median of $112,000 – more than double what they were about five years ago.

The inventory of houses throughout Florida shrunk from a supply of 5.9 months in January 2015 to just 4.5 months of supply last month. More good news for Orlando Villa and Condominium Owners!

Best!

Director, British Homes Group, Florida

Buy To Let Homes Orlando

New Buy To Let Development in Orlando, FL

28 Oct 2015 16:37PM

New Buy To Let Community in Orlando, FL

George Bernard Shaw of Pygmalion and My Fair Lady fame (amongst others!) once aptly observed that England and America are two countries separated by a common language!

And no-where is this more clear than in investing in holiday homes and other property in the United States … where valuations are appraisals, settlements are closings and no-one is quite sure what an Escrow is!

And that is where The British Homes Group Florida comes in!

“It’s not very often an Investor Real Estate opportunity comes along like this and we are proud to offer it to the buy-to-let and overseas investor community.”- Bill Cowie Commercial Director, British Homes Group

For over 20 years the British Homes Group in Orlando has been helping UK and Overseas clients buy homes around the Disney World areas of Orlando. Most of our team are from the UK, having made the move to Orlando decades ago.

We therefore speak ‘both languages’ as they say and help make the process of buying a home here much easier to understand and navigate.

This specialised “Buy-To-Let” part of the Group identifies homes that are more suitable for buyers that have little interest in using the homes themselves and/or who want long-term security in the rental income for the property.

This is a 57 home purpose built, buy-to-let community, that is already over 50% sold out. The Rosemont Woods development was built by Park Square Homes, is managed by Contempo and houses Virgin Atlantic Holidaymakers.

The initial Rental Agreement is for 5 Years, after which, it is renewable for another 5 Years.

If you think about that for a moment, at $2,500 a month for 10 Years that is a gross income of $300,000 – almost the purchase price of the home!

That’s why this unique situation is great for buy-to-let landlords, investors and cash-buyers in particular. Mortgages are available, with a minimum 30% deposit.

We are heading to the “A Place in the Sun” show in Birmingham this weekend so please send us an email if you would like to discuss in more detail.

We are also in the Show edition of the Magazine.

Why BUY TO LET?

Because it’s a safe, sensible and secure new way to invest in Florida real estate.

BHG is headquartered in Orlando, FL and for 30 years now, has been helping international clients buy and sell residential property in the short and long term rental areas around Orlando and Disney World.

We know this uniquely Florida real estate marketplace very well, therefore – and speak both languages fluently!

BUY TO LET versus “LEASE-BACK”

BUY TO LET has been an increasingly popular form of property investment in the United Kingdom for many years.

UK Definition (US Wikipedia)

Similarly, so too has SALE & LEASE BACK in the United States. “Sale & Lease-Back” is often used by companies wishing to raise working capital for their businesses by “selling” their property and then “leasing” it back for their own use.

ORLANDO VILLA BUY TO LET

In Orlando recently a similar arrangement has been made between:

1)  A major British airline (Virgin Atlantic) wishing to secure future villa accommodations for its ever-increasing British holiday-maker customers coming to Orlando each year;

2)  British property investors wishing to “Lease-Back” their villas to the programme to offset their operating costs and generate rental income when they are not using it and

3)  A leading Orlando Villa Management Company, Contempo Homes.

The initial (and renewable) lease-back/Guaranteed Rental period is for 5 years.

A Simple and Sensible “Win-Win” proposition indeed!

The villas are managed and the booking arrangements made by CONTEMPO HOMES, a well-established and respected Orlando-based villa management company expert in serving the often unique requirement of the UK villa ownership community in the Disney-area of Central Florida.

VILLA PRICES & GUANTANTEED RENTAL INCOME

Rosemont Woods, the new guaranteed rental BUY TO LET villa village, is located in Providence (www.providenceflorida.com) the prestigious gated, golf-course community close to Walt Disney World.

All Rosemont Woods BUY TO LET villas come fully furnished, have private pools (as well as access to a Word-Class Club House, tennis courts, community pool and the like).

Prices range for the mid-200’s to the mid-300’s. Guaranteed 5-year monthly rental incomes range from $1,400 to $2,500 per month – depending on the size (4-5 bedrooms) and location of the villa.

A limited number of homes are planned for this community. Please call or email us for more information.
