Why is 2016 the perfect time for British clients, British Investors to purchase in Florida or in the United States?

Terry Riffe | February 25, 2016

Why is 2016 the perfect time for British clients, British Investors to purchase in Florida or in the United States?

One of the main reasons is the climate, the sunny warm climate that they like. Not only that, they speak the same language. That definitely has its advantages.

In 2015, according to the Realtor Association, Orlando had an increase of 9% appreciation – going in the right direction if that is what you are looking for when investing in Central Florida. Not only that, the UK market is changing tremendously. Starting April 1st, there will be an extra 3% Doc stamps on any new secondary purchases. Any clients or people that are buying a secondary home, investment home or a ‘buy to let’ will pay an extra 3% Doc stamps, which is significant.

Not only that, a bigger issue I see is when owning property – or investment property, buy to let- you will also not be able to deduct any of your interest rates or your interest on your loan or your mortgage. That is a big expense to a lot of British clients that will be the reason they want to sell or they do not want to buy in the United Kingdom anymore.

So, a lot of clients are looking now to purchase somewhere else. With all of the problems that are happening in Europe, Florida is probably the next best thing and the safest place to buy. A lot of our clients are talking to us and are thinking of either buying either pre-construction, new or existing properties.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at An@OrlandoVacationRealty.

Orlando Vacation RealtyAn and her staff were the best!!!! From the listing appointment to closing she was always there for us. We could have never sold our house without her. Thank you An, Dean and Danny. I know that we asked a lot of questions but you guys never ignored us and treated us like family.

Orlando Vacation RealtyI’m not easy to impress, but I was very pleased with An (and her team) from start to finish on our villa purchase. Nothing was too much trouble and she was extremely generous with her time and displayed tremendous patience in understanding my concerns and responding to y questions. An carefully explained the process at the outset and took care of everything at each stage as she promised she would. Now that the purchase is complete, I look forward to working with An as my management agent going forward and I would not even consider using anyone else as a realtor for any future purchase.

Orlando Vacation RealtyWe were very impressed with An and her associate upon their first visit.

They were always easy to contact and very helpful. An’s knowledge of the market got us much more for our home than we ever thought. If we were to buy or sell another home, An would be our realtor without a doubt.

Orlando Vacation RealtyAn and her team are passionate, friendly and informative. I was provided information that helped me to execute the best decision. My home took several months to sell because of foreclosed homes in my community. An had a variety of clients with different interests viewing my hoe. Some for investment purposes and others to live in. Eventually, my home was sold at asking price.

Orlando Vacation RealtyWe recently purchased a property in Orlando. An’s acquaintance recommended that we contact An Flamand, as they have used her as a realtor and their experience was very positive. On meeting An, we immediately felt comfortable. Her knowledge and experience is vast and we quickly realised that she would be the person to work with in purchasing a property. Every step of the buying process was effortless. An acted promptly on all matters. We are on overseas buyer and went back to the UK after making an offer on ou property, however, it was not a problem. An’s great communication skills made sure that the purchase completed smoothly. We cannot thank her enough. We continue to work with An and highly recommend her if you are looking for a reliable, knowledgeable, efficient and trustworthy realtor.
