With the popularity of Florida real estate increasing each year, there are many factors that contribute to the growing appeal of buying Florida condos or apartments. Here we tell you the main reasons.
Florida is definitely one of the most important tourist destinations worldwide. But in addition to all the attractions, such as the Walt Disney parks and Universal Studios (in Orlando), Florida also offers many amenities for those who wish to live there long term.
The climate, for example, has two distinct seasons, one hot and humid and the other with very cool temperatures. But in all of them, Florida receives the heat of the sun, so it is a good place to live practically all year round.
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Florida is a very popular place to relocate. That being said, and as we have already mentioned, Florida is no longer just a vacation state, but has become a very popular place to look for housing.
In fact, if we go back a little more than 10 years in time, only in 2012 Florida experienced a population growth of 2.6%, making it the fourth most populous state in the country, with 18.8 million residents at that time.
And that growth has not stopped. In the same period, the state’s growth has only gone up, as has its economic, real estate, and residential development.
But what is it that makes Florida such an attractive place to buy real estate?

In addition to these attractions, there are also several golf courses in Florida that offer players various challenges throughout their rounds.
The “Sunshine State” is also known for its natural resources, such as oranges and pineapples, which are grown here year-round despite its tropical climatic conditions. This means that the people who live here can enjoy fresh fruits throughout the year without having to travel far from where they live to get them.
But without a doubt, the main reason that makes it so attractive for the acquisition of real estate is the strength of the market, especially in the sale of condominiums (apartments), since they offer a high return on investment and low maintenance costs. .
Additionally, Florida’s population is expected to grow 4% between 2020 and 2025, compared to 3% growth for the United States as a whole. This means that more people will look for homes in this state, which will increase the demand for real estate.
Last but not least, in the state natural persons do not pay income tax, being able to offer more convenient prices than in other markets.
