Many thousands of people have come to Orlando to buy their own piece of America, soak up the Florida sunshine and enjoy its world-class amenities and attractions.
The Central Florida area is particularly popular due to the lure of its famous theme parks, including WaltDisneyWorld, Universal Studios and Legoland Orlando.
However, if you are searching for real estate, which areas can you choose that are close to the theme parks, but also give you easy access to the main highways, the airport the outlets and golf courses?
For example, if you search Orlando on the leading United States real estate portal MLS.com, you are likely to be shown a selection of Downtown property, rather than being able to choose from the best areas in the region of Orlando, where there is much more choice.
One of the most popular areas for holiday home buyers is Davenport; the area bordering the Southern part of the Disney World complex, which is why there is increasing demand for real estate, including prime property from the Feltrim Group.
The family-friendly region of Davenport, the location of one of Feltrim Group’s real estate offices, is just 12 minutes from Walt Disney World, Orlando, making it the perfect choice for property buyers.
Davenport is also close to Interstate 4, the main highway to Orlando, and US 27, providing easy access to the region’s other theme parks and attractions, malls, golf courses and the areas’ beautiful beaches. For those travelling from overseas, Orlando International Airport is also within easy reach.
Feltrim Group has a wide range of top-quality communities and resorts in Central Florida, including Tuscany Preserve, The Fountains at ChampionsGate and Tuscana Resort, which are ideal for vacation homes, investment and buy-to-let properties.
Garrett Kenny, Chief Executive Office of the Feltrim Group, says, “High on the list our clients are top-class resort properties and homes in gated communities with superb facilities including pools, golf courses, fitness centers, children’s play areas, clubhouses and bars and restaurants.
“Many not only stay in their homes on vacation, but rent out the properties at other times through Feltrim’s comprehensive property management service, so their real estate provides them with income as well as rising capital value.”
The area is also popular with buyers because you can rent out your property for short-term lettings, which is not possible in other areas, including Orange County. Renting property out for short periods is also popular with those who want to spend some vacation time in their home themselves.
Long-term renters with children value the area because it contains some excellent schools, including some chartered schools that are run by private institutions but the fees are covered by the government. The Four Corners elementary school is an A-rated school as is the school at Celebration.
The Davenport area is home to a great selection of championship golf courses, designed by some of the game’s most famous names, including the Reunion Resort that has three courses by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer.
Other challenging courses include the Ridgewood Lakes Golf & Country Club at Davenport, Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club in Haines City and Osprey Ridge at Walt Disney World, which has five courses.
As this is the resort area you are spoiled for a great choice when it comes to eating out, with a huge variety of all kinds of restaurants including Gloria Estefan’s popular Bongo’s and the dinosaur-themed restaurant T-Rex.
Like most of central Florida, Davenport has a warm climate, with high ranging from the low 70degreesF to the mid 90sF, and low temperatures ranging from the upper 40s to the low 70s.
The area is full of natural beauty, including Lake Kissimmee State Park, which includes 5,930acres with hiking and cycling trails containing more than 50 species of rare animals.
As well as Davenport, Feltrim Group’s office also covers property in Kissimmee, Four Corners, Reunion and Celebration.
