Another property study has identified Orlando among United States property investment hotspots – and there are several compelling reasons why Central Florida leads the way.
It’s not the first time that Orlando has been named among the best US city real estate markets and it won’t be the last, says Central Florida developer and real estate chief, Garrett Kenny.
The new survey is the Best Markets Top Ten List for Real Estate Investing for Quarter 1, 2016, which has been published by HomeVestors and Local Market Monitor. They have identified the top investment cities based upon increased job opportunities in the past year.
Ingo Winzer, President and Founder of Local Market Monitor, says, “Good job growth is driving prices higher in our markets, mainly in business services but also tourism (Orlando, San Antonio), finance (Charlotte, Dallas) and manufacturing (Grand Rapids).
“Yesterday’s opportunity becomes today’s risk once prices move higher than they should. This is especially true for investors in rental properties and especially now that the deep discounts at which properties could be bought have largely disappeared.”
Ken Channell, Co-President of HomeVestors, says, “Investors always need to think hard, but in this environment they also can’t afford to think too long.”
The quarterly data identifies good rental markets where home prices are likely to rise at an increased rate over the next few years.
Criteria include markets where:
• the population has been growing at above-average rates (4% or more) with growth coming from people moving there in search of jobs
• the current rate of job growth of 2% or more
• there is low unemployment, so new jobs are filled by people who move there, not by unemployed people already there.
Garrett Kenny, Chief Executive Officer of Feltrim Group, says there is a vital link between vibrant real estate markets and strong job creation. “Orlando was the top US metro for job creation in 2015, with payroll employment rising 4.59%, updated data released by the US Department of Labor shows. Combine that with real estate values rising by around 10% a year, according to the latest Orlando Regional Realtor data and you have a powerful reason for investing.
“Throw in the fact that Orlando is the top tourist center in the United States, with the world’s top theme parks, including Disney, Universal, Legoland and SeaWorld drawing in more than 62million people a year, then it a winning argument.”
Mr Kenny is currently in Asia at sales meetings for Feltrim Group’s newest lakeside luxury development, Balmoral at Waters Edge, which offers both leasehold and EB5 US visa opportunities.
Feltrim Group began almost 20 years ago with CEO Garrett Kenny’s vision of operating a world class, internationally connected real estate firm.
The group is headquartered in the heart of Florida in the city of Davenport and now brings together construction, real estate, management and immigration services for international and local buyers as well as investors.
Feltrim Group constantly strives to embrace new technologies, social media and traditional and non-traditional advertising platforms. Feltrim has evolved with the times and now has a multinational approach to Florida real estate and US-wide immigration services.
