Investing in Orlando is not for everyone but it should be. The people who are investing in Orlando understand the difference between traditional long term rentals and short term rentals. The annual expenditure of a short term rental is typically higher than a traditional one, but so is the rental income.
A rental income of $1,500 per week instead of $1,500 per month, far outweighs the higher running costs.
Over the years we have assisted many investors be very successful and met others who have not fared so well. Getting the correct advice when you purchase a property is critical. If you buy wrong, it will cost you in the long run.
