Housing markets are notoriously affected by population growth and decline. Florida, in particular, has a high inflow and outflow of people due to its reputation as a retirement friendly state, tourism hotspot, and a fantastic vacation scene. This means that the Florida housing market is always in transition with multi-variable cycles that can alternatively be beneficial to buyers or sellers at any given time. Here are several unique aspects of the Florida housing market.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market: The Build-to-Rent Market

The build to rent housing market has been especially strong in Florida in recent years with many investors wanting to jump in to capitalize on the opportunity. While renting has traditionally been a small single home business, the Florida housing market is heading into it large scale. Large size, luxurious residential community developments are already underway. A build-to-rent landlord is responsible for the entire community – from maintenance issues to customer service to organizing community events. This means that a rental resident can share in on the social scene such as fitness centers, community pool, or game room. This consumer-focused orientation fits in well with the luxury tourist scene at Florida.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market: Summer Rain

The Florida environment can provide a humid and subtropical experience to visitors and people relocating. With lots of moisture in the air and a rainy season that can last for up to five months, building developers are looking at many months that houses need to stand in the rain. This is why housing and roofing materials are extremely important in Florida housing projects. While sleet and hail are quite uncommon this far south, neither are completely unprecedented, and both can damage less-resilient roofing materials. Just like homes in the far northern states or in the hot desert states, Florida homes also need to be built to prepare for its share of cyclic weather trends.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market: Luxury Housing Market

The luxury housing market represents a significant proportion of the overall value of the housing market in Florida. With many properties on the beach coastline or in higher middle-class neighborhoods valued at over $1 million, the luxury housing market tends to be buyer-focused in its market cycle. Investors interested in Florida’s luxury housing market should consider attending courses to boost their ability to sell in Florida’s unique luxury housing market.

Florida is a state that has been getting a lot of press attention as a great relocation spot for career opportunities, and its real estate market has similarly jumped because of the growth of population. If you are interested in real estate investment in Florida, a familiarity of its many unique trends would greatly benefit you.
