Why Orlando, Florida?

Florida is the 4th most populous state in the United States. It is also one of the few states that do not impose state income tax. Its warm climate and beautiful landscape have made it an ideal paradise for vacation and retirement. Orlando is one of the world's largest tourist cities, attracting over 56 million tourists each year. Orlando International Airport is the 13th-busiest airport in the United States and the 29th-busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic.

Nicknamed “The Theme Park Capital of the World”, Orlando offers the world’s biggest theme park groups, including Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studio and Epcot Center, Universal Studio, Islands of Adventure and Sea World. Among the less well-known are Discovery Cove, Wet 'n Wild, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Aquatica Water Parks. In addition, there are numerous small and medium-sized recreational parks like Disney Quest, Wide World of Sports, Gator Land, Believe It or Not, Arabian Nights, and Medieval Times. If you include nearby attractions like Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Busch Garden in Tampa, LEGOLAND in Winter Heaven, it will easily take you 15 days or more to just breeze through all of these attractions.

To the east of Orlando is the Atlantic Ocean. On the west coast is Gulf of Mexico. A mere one hour or so drive will take you to either coast. Because of its central inland location, Orlando is rarely hit by hurricanes, which can be an issue for other parts of Florida. The average temperature in Orlando is 25 C, with sunshine more than 300 days a year.

Orlando’s economy benefits from a globally-recognized tourism industry. Other equally strong innovative sectors include Orlando’s aerospace & defense sector, modeling, simulation and training, life sciences and biotechnology, digital media, and many more.

With the outbreak of the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis, housing prices in Orlando fell by as much as two-thirds, to become one of the hardest hit areas of the subprime mortgage crisis. Currently some properties are priced below construction cost. Whether you do long-term rental or short term rental, cash return on investment (CAPRATE) is in the range of 4-8%, providing investors with a unique investment opportunity. Statistics show that since 2012, the Orlando real estate prices have bottomed out and begun to rise. Many foreign investment funds now jumped on the bandwagon of biding for bankowned or foreclosure properties, resulting in multiple offers for a property, causing the final sales price to be higher than the asking price.
