Locations

ORLANDO

Orlando, located in central Florida, is one of the world’s fastest-growing cities and a major worldwide tourist destination. Ranking as the most popular holiday destination in the US, Orlando is renowned globally for its superb theme parks that include Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, Sea World Orlando and Legoland Florida. Visitor numbers in 2015 reached a record 66 million, up 5.42% on 2014 (latest full year figures available). Orlando is also one of the busiest American cities for conferences and conventions, and has the second largest university campus (in terms of enrolment) in the United States. Demand is strong for properties that are within a short drive to Orlando city centre, major employment centres, schools, hospitals and key tourist destinations and theme parks. Popular areas tend to be along the I-4 corridor where there is easy access to main roads and public transport.

TAMPA

Situated on the west coast of Florida, Tampa Bay is the third most populous metro area in the state. Offering picturesque sceneries and 361 days of sunshine per year, Tampa is home to some of the top beaches in the world comprising 1,260 miles of coastline and 825 miles of beach. The area’s economy is one of the most buoyant in Florida and job creation is one of the highest in the country. Tampa’s economy is founded on diverse industries that includes tourism, agriculture, construction, finance, health care, technology and the Port of Tampa. Areas within a short drive to Tampa city are in high demand as well as those close to Tampa’s stunning beaches, key employment centres, schools and hospitals. Popular areas that offer easy access to main roads and public transport are along the I-4 and I-75.

JACKSONVILLE

Home to 850,000 residents, it is situated in Northeast Florida on the St Johns River and known for its beaches and waterways. It is also home to the largest urban park system in the US.

Market Opportunity

This investment has been designed to specifically cater to the extreme undersupply of property in the Englewood area.

The area is experiencing a major shortage of properties. Fuelled by a growing population, the area is attracting new residents drawn by the dual attractions of job opportunities and a popular retirement destination. Both Charlotte County and Sarasota have experienced hikes in their number of inhabitants; between 2010 and 2015, their populations increased by 8.2% and 6.9% respectively. In terms of employment opportunities, Sarasota was rated as the best place to find a job in Florida in 2016 by WalletHub, followed by Tampa in 6th place.

Englewood offers good amenities in a small-town environment making it popular with relocating families and ‘snowbirds’ residents from the colder northern states in the US and Canada who holiday in the town during the winter. These two factors put pressure on both the resale and rental markets, which in turn pushes house prices upwards.

In the year to December 2016, prices for three-bedroom properties in Englewood rose by 17.5%. Rental prices are equally buoyant with the median rental rate in Englewood up 16.8% in the same period.

Inventory levels continue to be low and the need for new builds is strong in the area, fuelled by demand from retirees and buoyant employment creation. The New Single Family Market Overview Q3 2016, published by RCLCO (and the latest available), reported that Southwest Florida was enjoying the best market for new homes since 2007. In Q3, sales of new single family homes rose by 30 per cent while year-to-date sales went up by 52 per cent.

According to the Homes Solutions Q3 report, their research on population growth in the region estimates that Southwest Florida needs nearly 13,900 new homes a year to cater for its new inhabitants, and that single-family homes will dominate the market in 2017.
