Florida is on the top of the list of states for Foreclosures right now, which means rentals will be in demand and prices will be low.
If you are an investor who is looking for a long term solution - you know the time to buy is when prices are low.... just don't expect a 'quick flip' and you'll do well.
Florida, especially zip code 32835 is so close to the Disney area, Dr. Phillips/Windermere and International Drive, that if you can buy something now at a good price, hold on to it, you will make money.
When would you like to buy stocks? When they are at their lowest or highest? When do you want to sell? when the market is low or high? Real estate is cyclical, you just have to look at any investment as a quick or long term project.
Florida is also a great relo market, second home market, Senior Market, luxury home market, unemployment isn't as high as other States, so although there are those having their problems - as an investor, the time to invest in real estate is NOW - WHILE prices are low, but expect to hold on to it for at least 5+ years to see a profit. To pay closing costs when buying and selling, and perhaps considering a 10-31 exchange, you need to speak with a Financial Advisor to see if this would be the highest and best use of your money at this time of your life.
Hope this helps!
