16 Florida property hotspots you shouldn’t forget

 

Miami, Orlando, Kissimee. Everyone knows the big Florida boys where investors buy property. But there are other markets out there. What about Davenport's next door neighbour or Kissimmee's cousin?

Never fear! MoveWorldwide is here to remind you of 16 Florida property hotspots you should never forget. Here is what our agents had to say about each:

 

Celebration

 "Celebration is always popular. You can get a one-bedroom condo for $125k while homes reach all the way up $3m. The property is all zoned long-term, but buyers from England still like it because of the area: there are cobbled streets and you don't need a car."

Reunion

"A development where the developer went bust. But it's now an up-market golf community with high-end property that has expensive running costs because of the hotel, golf course and other facilities. That plus above average prices put foreign investors off."

Oakland

"An extension of Winter Garden, 15 minutes away from Windermere and Gotha, Oakland is a tiny town that covers just 1.6 square miles of land. Expect equally high-end property and wealthy residents."

Miami Beach

 "A series of barrier islands just next to Miami proper, Miami Beach is one of America's top beach resorts, with hotels and apartments overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Appearances in Miami Vice and Scarface have only added to its iconic popularity. "

Daytona Beach

 "Daytona Beach, the main city on Florida's Fun Coast, is famous for its sandy beaches, which attract tourists and motorsports alike – a trend that was boosted by the construction of the Daytona International Speedway in 1959."

Belle Isle

 "Another town in the Orlando-Kissimmee area, Belle Isle is known as "the airport area" among locals thanks to its position just three miles from Orlando International Airport and 30 minutes from Disney World."

Jacksonville

"The biggest city in Florida, Jacksonville plays an important role as a port for both public and military uses. But tourism is just as vital a part of the economy, with 2.8 million tourists visiting the town in 2008. "

Coconut Creek

 "Known as the butterfly capital of the world, Coconut Creek is home to the world's largest butterfly aviary, Butterfly World.  On the East Coast, close to Fort Lauderdale, the city is another popular tourist hotspot."

Hollywood

"In Florida's Broward County, Hollywood – not to be confused with Hollywood, LA – is the 12th largest city in Florida. Rather than movie stars and celebrities, Hollywood is most famous for its fabulous 6 mile stretch of beach looking out to the Atlantic Ocean."

Pembroke Pines

"The 10th most populated city in the state following years of growth, Pembroke Pines has a good rental market for property investors, although the housing supply has increased in recent years while demand and growth has slowed."

West Palm Beach

"West Palm Beach is one of the main Atlantic Coast cities in the state, attracting lots of visitors every year thanks to Palm Beach International Airport as well as the area's pristine golf courses, sunny weather and an old JFK Cold War bunker. "

Naples

 "The official county seat of Collier Country, Naples  took its name from the Italian town as a result of its beautiful bay. Formerly a hub of real estate development and agriculture, Naples, like many towns in Florida, has a strong tourist industry that drives its economy. "

Sarasota

 "Sarasota is famous for its sandy coasts and its old-fashioned Jungle Gardens. Its beaches have earned it the nickname ‘Paradise' and it is one of the most popular US destinations for elderly expats."

Largo

"The crossroads of the county, Largo is part of the Tampa Bay area. Due to its location near the Gulf of Mexico, temperatures are warmer here than Florida's mainland, although tourist numbers are low."

Clearwater

"Lying to the West of Tampa, Clearwater is one of the area's smaller cities, but has housed several famous people, from Hulk Hogan and Evel Knievel to the Church of Scientology."

Fairview Shores

"Demand for property has slowed in Fairview Shores since the recession, with the housing market mostly consisting of residential properties for families."
