Finding The Right Holiday Home Investment In Orlando

Finding The Right Holiday Home Investment In Orlando

The options are many, the values are great

 

Orlando, FL – The United Kingdom is second only to Canada when it comes to the number of annual visitors to Florida. More than 1.6 million Brits visited the Sunshine State in 2015 due to its unique combination of warm weather, plenty to do for the entire family and favorable exchange rates. As the world’s single largest tourist destination, Orlando has more than 66 million visitors annually. Subsequently, affordable pricing and reliable rental returns have made Orlando a top choice for many property buyers.

The recent decision by voters in the UK to leave the European Union (EU) has led to instability in the financial markets. For savvy Brits looking to diversify their investments, the acquisition of US holiday property is an increasingly popular option.

The Orlando vacation home market presents buyers with a variety of choices. Single-family homes, townhomes, villas and condos are all available in close proximity to Orlando’s world-famous attractions. Finding the right one for you can be a daunting task. Engaging a local Realtor can help take the guesswork out of the process and save you time and money in the long run. Evaluating how you’ll use the property will also help you narrow down your choices.

Points to Consider:

Do I want to be able to rent out my property when I’m not using it?

Am I prepared to manage the rental process myself, or should I engage a property management company?

How do I choose from the abundance of property management companies available?

Do I want a single-family home and the maintenance that goes along with it, or would a ‘lock and leave’ condominium style property be better for me?

Would my family prefer a neighborhood-type setting or a resort setting with amenities and activities?

How important is location? Do I want to be close to Disney? Major roadways?

How will my family use the property? Will we simply sleep there in between theme park visits, or would we prefer to take some time to relax at pools, spas, etc?

The Grove Resort & Spa, Orlando’s newest and most exciting vacation resort destination, is the obvious choice for buyers who want a turn-key holiday property in a resort setting. Located just five minutes west of Walt Disney World® Resort, prices for two-bedroom condominiums start from the $250,000s. On-site hotel management group, Benchmark International will handle all the details in renting of your condominium while you’re not there. Their professional staff will tend to housekeeping and other services while your holiday property is occupied.

The Grove Resort & Spa will feature a world-class, family-friendly water park and amenity package with the first surf simulator at any Orlando vacation home community or hotel, a lazy river winding more than 725 feet (221 meters), three swimming pools collectively known as The Springs, a large zero-entry resort pool and dining options that include three restaurants and four bars. A destination unto itself, The Grove is the ideal place for families to relax and reconnect. With activities to please anyone from age 6 to 60 (and beyond!), owners and guests are sure to schedule several days of their holiday on property swimming, dining and enjoying the countless amenities available here.

The Grove Resort & Spa is now selling its two-and three-bedroom condominiums. Prospective buyers are welcome to tour the property with a Realtor or on their own. The on-site sales team will provide expert insight on the property, its extensive amenities and the hotel rental program. They’ll also be there to guide you every step of the way through the purchase process.

The process for purchasing property in the U.S. may differ from that in the U.K. First, the buyer and seller will draw a contract detailing the conditions of the sale, which also includes title checks and property inspections. Both parties are represented separately, acting through a broker. A deposit of at least 10 percent is paid at this point. The property buyer forfeits this if they withdraw from the purchase. If the property fails to meet the conditions of the sale outlined in the contract, the deposit is refunded. The buyer and seller then both appoint a title company in order to complete the transaction.

The new owner pays the balance due and both parties sign the final documents. The transfer of ownership is then registered with proper local entities.

The Grove Resort & Spa is now selling its first phase of up to 292 residences. Deposits will be collected at the time of contract, with closings scheduled prior to the first phase grand opening in January 2017.

The Grove Resort & Spa Makes Economic Mark on Orlando

Resort condominiums located just a five minute-­drive to Walt Disney World® will support immediate construction jobs with permanent positions added as the opening approaches.

 

Orlando, FL – Orlando’s newest vacation resort destination, The Grove Resort & Spa, is gearing up for a mid-­‐November grand opening of its first phase. The Grove’s 878 residences will be sold fully furnished as two-­‐ and three-­‐bedroom vacation home condominiums. The owner then has the option to place the unit in the resort’s hotel rental program. Onsite property management company Benchmark Hospitality International will facilitate the hotel rental program and provide service to the resort guests.

Developer BTI Partners has engaged numerous Central Florida-­‐based companies, including architects Humphreys & Partners and L2 Studios, interior designer Lori Rapport, landscape architects Perry Becker and Welbro Building Corporation as general contractor. More than 150 construction positions are required to bring the project to market. Billed as the largest development of its kind currently underway in Orlando, work at The Grove began in early May.

The resort will start accepting reservations on June 15th for arrivals beginning December 1st. Approximately 120 permanent staff will be hired in advance of the first guests’ arrival for this first phase. The amenities, including multiple food/beverage facilities and a water park overlooking a nature preserve, will open shortly thereafter. When The Grove Resort & Spa is operating at full capacity, it will employ up to 1,200 staff. Phases two and three are planned to open over the course of the next three years.

Local Realtors stand to benefit from the development, as well. It is anticipated that upwards of 90% of vacation home sales at The Grove will be contracted through local Realtors.

Disover Orlando’s newest holiday home resort less than five minutes from Walt Disney World®

With recent statistics revealing that Orlando’s family holiday home rental market is set to rise 6.1 per cent per month this year due to its growing leisure and hospitality industries, The Grove Resort & Spa is introducing its latest ‘all you could want’ holiday home destination project just five minutes from Disney. The Grove Resort & Spa is designed to offer UK buyers and year-round travelers a development that integrates all amenities and leisure facilities, and is fully and professionally managed by Benchmark Hospitality International, which has nearly 40 years of hotel management experience, over 5,000 rooms and 40 resorts, hotels and conference centres internationally. The Grove Resort & Spa is ideally located just five minutes west of the Walt Disney World® entrance and 40 minutes southwest of Orlando International Airport. The 20 major theme and water parks that attract 66 million visitors to Central Florida annually, including Universal Studios Florida®, SeaWorld®, Gatorland® and LEGOLAND®, are just minutes away. Unlike its competition, The Grove is secluded from the noise, neon glare and traffic of other resorts. Sitting on 110 acres overlooking the natural beauty of Lake Austin and adjacent to a nature reserve, the pristine setting will remain pristine for years to come and is reminiscent of ‘old Florida’ – private and serene.

With prices for a fully-furnished condominium unit starting in the mid $200s, The Grove’s value to potential buyers differentiates it from the competition. Everything from sofas to linens to silverware is included in the purchase price. Many holiday home developments in the area require the purchase of a furniture package in addition to the base price of the residence. These packages can cost upwards of $50,000. The Grove’s fully-furnished two-bedroom apartments range from 1,338 square feet (124 square metres) to 1,468 square feet (125 square metres) and are priced starting at $255,000. Three-bedroom residences range from 1,468 square feet (136 square metres) to 1,614 square feet (150 square metres) and are priced starting at $294,900.

Benchmark Hospitality International will be located onsite to handle hotel and daily resort operations. Its involvement provides a convenience to owners and a standard of service excellence to hotel guests. Hotels in the Benchmark portfolio boast more than ten AAA Four-Diamond Awards, several Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards/Top 500 Hotels as well as international recognition from Condé Nast Traveler and Forbes.

Benchmark Hospitality International will coordinate and oversee all aspects of the rental programme on behalf of property owners, including sales and marketing of the resort, servicing the guests during their stay, cleaning and maintenance of the units, and compliance with state and county licensing and requirements. Because its management team is located onsite, they are available 24/7 to take care of both owners’ and guests’ needs, providing maximum efficiency and cost-effective services while maintaining a high standard of quality.

David D’Ambrosio, director of operations for the developer, says: “Increasingly, more tourists are opting for resorts with full package facilities on-site to keep the whole family occupied during their holiday. It’s clear from the state of the overseas property market that UK buyers have a strong interest in second homes abroad, so we’re confident in putting forward The Grove Resort & Spa as a strong value proposition for both investors and leisure buyers. The development’s amenities and the management company’s expertise deliver a really attractive package. The Orlando area anticipates more than 66 million visitors annually, so this project has some very exciting opportunity prospects for the international market.”

The Grove Resort & Spa will feature a world-class, family-friendly water park and amenity package with the first surf simulator at any Orlando holiday home community or hotel, a lazy river winding more than 725 feet (221 metres), three swimming pools collectively known as The Springs, a large zero-entry resort pool, and dining options that include three restaurants and four bars and poolside food and beverage services.  The Springs is located on the quieter side of the resort and also includes a hot tub and private cabanas. It is set apart from the action of the water park and provides a more relaxing and tranquil setting.

Further amenities include a children’s activity center and arcade; convenience store market and deli; a spa and fitness centre; lazy river with poolside food and beverage service; a luxurious lobby with concierge service; and a 300 person meeting space making it ideal for weddings, family reunions, sports team functions and corporate events.
