Reasons to buy
1. Prices have crashed. We`ve seen prices cuts in the 30/50% range over the past 18 months

2. This looks like the right time sales volumes are rising – evidence that today`s `buyers market` may be changing in the near future. We`ve witnessed the best quality stock, at the right price moving fast.

3. Low mortgage rates. Both in the US and the UK (providing you have; a large deposit and an exemplary credit record)

4. Americas long-term-growth state. Florida is to New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington`s etc what Spain is to Northern Europe -great winter climate and easily accessible. Long-term economic and demographic trends continue to favour Florida. By next year (2010) economists forecast that Florida will be the third-most-populated state in the country. Florida`s population is expected to continue to grow by circa 75 percent by 2030. The State has consistently featured as one of the 10 fastest-growing areas in the U.S. for each of the past four decades, and often the state has been in the top four (census data). Population growth will continue to provide the foundation for future strong economic development, such as new jobs and growing incomes. The US has over 60 million `baby boomers` (equivalent to our entire population)Florida is a prime retirement destination All of these trends are positive indicators for real estate growth-America always bounces back!

5. High stock levels. Unlike the UK you can lay your hands on a high quality discounted property nditions are ideal for motivated buyers to invest in their dream home. Stock is still plentiful in all price ranges but as with the UK the best properties still move quickly.

6. Open for business. Florida has always been a pro-business state if anything the downturn further enforces that belief– Florida boasts no state income taxes, has generous incentives from local municipalities and encourage businesses to set- up here. Florida leaders continue to keep business needs in the forefront of planning for the state`s future. The Milken Institute:
Milken ranked five Florida communities on its `Best Performing Cities Index 2008,` this ranks U.S. states and cities on sustainable economic growth. Florida`s business climate ranked fourth among CEOs and Executives. Again all this activity strengthens the property market.

7. Migration Not only the `snowbirds` Even with a slowdown in economic growth nationally, projections call for Florida`s population to return to more normal growth levels of about 317,000 a year between 2012 and 2020.

8. Positive outlook. Disney has only dropped by 5% (gate entries) during the downturn; people retain a positive outlook for Florida. Money is being invested from all over the world including China, Singapore and Canada.

9. Lifestyle. Friendly people, great climate fantastic beaches shops and attractions no state income tax. It`s no wonder that Florida is in the top three of Harris Poll`s `Most Desirable Places to Live` survey.

10. Attractions. Plenty of flights to Florida. Disney is the most visited theme park in the world; forthcoming Harry Potter theme park will further increase demand. forecasting-walt-disney-world-attendance/
