Top Reasons Why Florida is a perfect place to buy a Rent to Own
The Gulf of Mexico! More than just an arm of the Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico is a cultural experience. Life on Florida's west coast is slower paced, lower keyed, and still affordable. For home buyers looking to watch the sun set over the Gulf, great deals exist in both homes for sale and homes for rent.
Beachfront Living! Whether you are looking for a cottage on the snowy beaches of Pensacola or a waterfront condo in Miami, Florida offers a waterfront community for every taste and household.
The Great Cypress Swamps! The mysterious waterways of Florida and their towering Cypress guardians are one of the state's treasures. Visitors can have pure tourist fun at alligator farms or take a fishing or bird watching tour back into places that were old when the first Europeans arrived.

Diversity of Housing! Florida has a huge variety of rental properties. From modest bungalows and modulars, to mid-century modern stunners, to lush seaside estates, buyers can find a neighborhood to suit their taste and budget.
Pensacola! This town has grown from its modest beginnings as a naval base. The anchor of what is affectionately called the "Redneck Riveria," Pensacola is a haven of white beaches, a slower pace, and reasonable prices for visitors and residents.
Disney World! The Magic Kingdom is an economic powerhouse in the Sunshine State. A major employer and contributor to the local economy, it also helps support the tourist industry and stabilize neighborhood property values and house prices. Look for rentals in the area for a family-friendly extended stay.
The Florida Keys! Channel your inner Jimmy Buffett and head south to see the Florida Keys. Stop by Key Largo and take a tour on the African Queen. Then go down the chain, ending up at Key West. Check out rental houses for a more budget-friendly way to extend your trip.
Diversity and Culture! In Florida, a weekend can include pulsing Latin rhythms in Miami, racing on the beach in Daytona, and a laidback fish fry in Tampa. Florida is a polyglot culture that revels in and celebrates its diversity.
Daytona Beach! A mecca of NASCAR and muscle car culture and rowdy fun on the beach, Daytona Beach is home of the Daytona 500, one of the fastest sets of left turns in the country.
Dynamic Housing Market! Home prices are on the rise in Florida, but deals still abound in areas hit hard by the economic downturn. Across the state, the median house price is on the rise, boding well for future appreciation and protection of your investment. Florida is currently a buyer's market, but the deals won't last forever.
No Income Tax! That says it all. Florida has no state income tax. Kiplinger rates Florida as an overall "tax-friendly" state
Small Town Blast from the Past! Like seashells? Check out Captiva, population 583. Music and movie buffs will head south for Micanopy, population 600, made famous (sort of) in the Michael J. Fox movie, "Doc Holiday." Not all of Florida's fun is on the coasts. Get off the beaten path and check out old Florida.
Generous Homestead Exemption on Property Taxes! Real property and houses are taxed at 100 percent of their market value. However, the state has a generous homestead exemption for all permanent residents. Every homeowner who occupies their home on January 1st can apply for an exemption of up to $50,000. For residents over 65 who meet income guidelines, an additional $50,000 exemption may be available.
Fun and Quirky Festivals! Whether you prefer the annual mullet toss in Perdido Key or the sophisticated Zora Festival celebrating the literary genius of Zora Neale Hurston, the back roads of Florida never miss a chance to throw a party. Whether you live here or just visit, weekend entertainment is usually only a roadmap away.
Historic Homes! It doesn't matter if a historic home buyer's taste for mid-century means the 1800s or the 1900s; Florida has a home for sale to suit them. The elegant pastel stuccos of Miami stand proudly with elegant Victorian era mansions, creating a series of neighborhoods unlike any other state.
The Atlantic Coast! From Fernandina Beach through St. Augustine, to Miami and points south, the Atlantic coast of Florida is some of the finest real estate in the country. Get off the freeway and take the state routes, such as Route 5 and Highway A1A, to get the full flavor of the area. Keep an eye out for great deals on homes for sale, rent to own properties, and rental houses in smaller communities, because bargains are still around. Stop off for a tour of Cape Canaveral and enjoy the energy of Cocoa Beach, home to astronauts and engineers.
Totally Miami! Although pastel blazers and sockless loafers no longer dominate the scene, Miami is still the coolest and most vibrant city in the state. Chill with the surfers and roller bladers at South Beach before hitting the clubs in Little Havana. Go during the Carnival for the wildest party this side of Mardi Gras. Miami is the place to see and be seen.
Sports! Sports! Sports! Pro football junkies can't get enough of the Dolphins, while college fans rock it with the Canes at the University of Miami. Hoops fans argue the merits of the Heat. Looking for something different? Try Jai alai or polo, either as a player or spectator. Florida has it all.
